Super-Charge Your Morning Coffee with Turmeric and Coconut Oil
Author: Jack Delou
When you're looking for a caffeinated jolt first thing in the morning, but are bored with your usual cup of joe, try this warm and spicy coffee idea that's healthy and invigorating. Adding turmeric and coconut oil to your morning cup of coffee is a game changer.
Turmeric adds a new layer of flavour to your coffee. You'll also enjoy its health-giving benefits thanks to its active ingredient, curcumin. Just be careful when you handle turmeric; it stains most things it touches.
Turmeric curcumin can be found in any health food store, supermarket, vitamin shop or online. Turmeric originates from a shrub that's a close relative of ginger. It's commonly used to treat inflammation and stomach issues.
Add coconut oil to your coffee brew, and you're drinking even more superfoods in your morning cup. Besides the added flavour, the addition of coconut oil also makes your brew an energizer that helps you get through the day ahead. The fatty acids found in coconut oil can kill harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. Lighten your coffee with a few dashes of coconut milk, which adds more flavour and a silky, creamy taste.
Make a Flavorful Drink You'll Savour
Once you add turmeric and coconut to your coffee, you've made a drink so nutritious and calorie-dense, it can be breakfast all on its own. If you desire, also eat a small portion of protein-filled foods, like eggs. If you find yourself hungry after your morning cup, use more coconut oil the next time around.
