3 Health Benefits of Snickerdoodle Coconut Coffee
#1: Immune Enhancing
Cinnamon is a fantastic immune-enhancing spice. It acts as an antioxidant in your body, fighting off free-radicals and balancing oxidative damage[*].
It also has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anticancer activity coming from its volatile oils[*]
Adding cinnamon to your diet here and there is a great way to boost immunity.
#2: Increases Fat Burning
Caffeine is a great pick-me-up, but did you know it can also help you burn fat?
The caffeine in your coffee stimulates your sympathetic nervous system and increases the amount of fat that’s broken down in your body.
When a group of volunteers was given either caffeine or a non-caffeinated placebo, the caffeine group showed increased fat oxidation (break down of fat)[*].
#3: Balances Blood Sugar
Monk fruit is an excellent alternative to sugar for several reasons. Unlike sugar, It not only keeps your blood sugar stable, but it also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Animal research has found that one way monk fruit may act an anti-inflammatory agent is by down-regulating genes that can turn on inflammation[*].
Snickerdoodle Coconut Coffee
Everyone likes a little sweet with their morning. Some go for coffee cake, while others may prefer a biscuit, scone, or sugar cookie.
On a keto diet those sugar-laden, carb-heavy extras take the backseat. But if you’re in it for the long-haul, you have to come up with ways to get your kicks without getting kicked out of ketosis.
This snickerdoodle coconut coffee is the perfect solution, and with a prep time of only five minutes, you’ll be sipping on this delightful beverage in no time.
So gather your dry ingredients and get your coffee brewing — you’re in for a treat.
This recipe is meant to be made with Perfect Keto Instant Keto Coffee (the MCT powder gives it an extra smooth and creamy taste), but if you don’t have any on hand, you can also just use regular brewed coffee.
Start by heating up 8 ounces of water over the stove or in a tea kettle. Once your water is nice and hot, add the instant coffee and stir until fully dissolved.
Grab your coconut cream, monk fruit, and cinnamon from your cabinet. Add three tablespoons of coconut cream into your hot cup of coffee.
The coconut cream gives this recipe its smooth and rich mouthfeel. Cover and refrigerate the rest of your coconut cream, and you can use it for the same recipe tomorrow.
Add two teaspoons of monk fruit (or to taste), and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to your coffee. Option to add cardamom and nutmeg as well.
Add the coffee and cream mixture into your high-speed blender and blend on high until all of the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
If it’s your first time making this recipe, take a sip and see if you need to adjust the spices or cream.
The recipe is best served hot, but you can also let it cool to room temperature and add in some ice for a snickerdoodle coconut coffee frappucino.
This coffee goes great with some gluten-free, keto chocolate chip cookies.Print
