Cocovit Recipes: Coffee + Coconut Oil

Coffee & Cocovit Coconut Oil

You’ve probably been hearing a lot of buzz on various coffee combinations, and we’re not talking about cream & sugar – more like coconut oil or butter. Initially we thought it was a tad odd also, but it may just be the boost you need get off on the right foot or for an extra mid-day kick.

Coffee with Cocovit Coconut Oil not only helps you be more focused and alert, but can also help you lose weight and boost your metabolism.  And it’s delicious.

How does it exactly work?
Cocovit Coconut Oil is primarily made up of medium chain fatty acids (MCTs), which are processed directly by your liver, reducing the necessity for glucose production and not allowing the fat to be stored.  MCT-rich diets have also been shown to increase energy and metabolism. When MCTs are processed by the liver it also produce ketones, which can be used by most cells in the body for energy, especially in the brain.

When you include Cocovit Coconut Oil in coffee you're not only getting your heart pumping, but you're also giving your brain and metabolism a boost. There are a number of ways Cocovit Coconut Oil and coffee can be prepared. Here is our favorite concoction:

2-6 tablespoons of unsalted, grass-fed butter (we recommend Kerrygold)
1-2 tablespoons of Cocovit Coconut Oil
2 cups of hot coffee brewed

Combine all of these ingredients in a Nutri Bullet blender or Vitamix, creating a frothy finish.
