Author Notes: Coconut oil is magic, did you know that? It’s chock full of medium chain triglycerides, which is science for healthy fats that help the body efficiently burn energy! Coconut oil also can help fight off yeasts, fungi, and bacteria. It helps increase metabolism and can improve insulin use within the body. Not to mention it’s an excellent moisturizer for skin and hair. Superfood, amirite? It can easily replace butter in many baked recipes, but it’s not hard at all to sneak a teaspoon or two for an added boost into smoothies, milkshakes, and, you guessed it- even coffee! Hence this post. Another one of coconut oil’s magic properties is that when you blend it up with coffee and milk it creates an INSANE foam. Super thick and pretty café-quality foam. Such a great way to boost energy in the morning or (if you’re me) at 4 pm, when the morning coffee has faded.
