Coconut Green Tea with a Big FAT Kick

Looking for a little kick but not digging the coffee? Whether you’re trying to avoid coffee because you’re concerned with its cross-reactivity to gluten or the potential risk of ingesting mold (1) , or you’re simply looking to cut down on java habit just a tad, and feeling like hot tea is just too boring for you, read on, as I’ve got just the perfect solution for you. Admittedly, it is quite a concoction and not one you’re likely going to whip up at the office or find at most cafes, but if you’re working from home or reading the paper on a Sunday morning, it’s worth the five minutes it’’ll take you to whip this up. We start with hot tea. I typically go for green or yerba mate, but choose your favorite; there’s no wrong way to go here. Then, by adding some health boosting spices, like turmeric and ginger with their natural anti inflammatory properties, and a good whollop of fat from coconut butter combined with MCT oil for that extra focus it’ll provide, we create a decadent, rich savory cup of goodness. It’ll satisfy you between meals, keep your blood sugar balanced since there’s nothing sweet added and don’t be surprised if you find your mental focus is laser sharp (another benefit of relying on fat as our primary fuel source, rather than the outdated idea that we should snack on fruit all day long!) Click here for my recipe and great ready to change your idea of what a hot tea can be! Say goodbye to boring! (1) “Is Coffee Safe on a Gluten Free Diet? | Gluten-Free Society.” GlutenFree Society.
