Matcha is one of my favorite, refreshing flavors. It’s also a power-packed superfood! Matcha contains vitamins, antioxidants, is naturally detoxifying, and boosts metabolism. Hot or cold, a good matcha latte at the start of your day is sure to please.

Matcha gives you that morning (hot or cold) caffeine boost needed to jump start  your day, and this FP latte goes with any meal.

I used to love the matcha latte at Starbuck’s, but I think I love this at-home version even more. Plus, it takes less than 10 minutes to make (which is definitely less than the wait time at a busy coffee shop).

Matcha powder is incredibly versatile. You can use it for baking, smoothies, and even ice cream.

Simply place all of the ingredients into a high-powered blender – I love my Ninja single cups for this, because it’s fast and effective. Serve over ice (or blend with ice for a frappé) and enjoy!

In my pre-THM days, I was all about the flavored creamers, and lately I’ve really been missing them. So, instead of going back to my old ways, I came up with a new way to enjoy my favorite flavors.

Coffee is my favorite part of the morning. Every day I juice mine up with collagen, MCT oil, half and half, and different extracts. I know I may be preaching to the choir here, but it can be quite time-consuming getting together just one cup of coffee.

So, I decided to try my hand at making my own DIY coffee creamer.

The method was fairly simple, and I threw it all together in the midst of making breakfast for my family. Quick and easy, anyone?

I made a syrup using water, Pyure, vanilla extract, and caramel extract. Once the Pyure dissolved, I added the collagen. Since I only made a test batch – enough to last about a week – I did about 7 scoops of collagen (I try to get one full scoop per day). Once the collagen dissolved, I added the MCT oil (about enough for 1 week, 1 teaspoon per day).

*NOTE: If your syrup needs a little help mixing, and a whisk isn’t quite doing the job, try this little gadget. My syrup had some trouble at times, and this helped get everything incorporated.

Really, that’s it!

I cooled the syrup slightly by sticking it in the fridge for about 7 minutes before adding it to my half and half. Now, I was running low on half and half that day, so I did a mix of half and half and heavy cream. However, feel free to make this what YOU want. Isn’t that the point of DIY creamer?

“Official” bulletproof coffee includes butter, or ghee. However, I just wasn’t feeling it that day. The MCT oil in my coffee is really enough for me, but again – make this your own. No MCT oil? No worries, use some coconut oil. Want to add ghee? Go for it! Want to make it dairy free? Use coconut milk (from a can is fine too, just make sure to shake it first) or any on-plan nut milks. No collagen in your house? Leave it out, I won’t know.

Not only can you make this coffee creamer with as many, or as few, ingredients as you want, but it also goes from start to in-your-coffee in the time it takes to make bacon and eggs.

Ingredients


Directions

  1. Place the water, sweetener, and extracts in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and simmer rapidly until sweetener is dissolved.
  2. Add the collagen, blending if needed.
  3. Add the MCT oil, again blending if needed.
  4. Cool the syrup for about 5-7 minutes in the fridge. It should be cool (or room temperature) to the touch.
  5. Stir the cream of your choice into the syrup. [I chose to use my half and half container, since I was bout to recycle it anyway. It’s the perfect vessel, if you have one! I shake it a little each time before I use it.]
  6. Use 1-2 Tbsp in your coffee, sip, and enjoy!

I’m guilty. Starbucks holiday drinks get me every year, even though I don’t drink their coffee hardly at all throughout the year. I’m not so much a pumpkin spice girl, I’m a winter-flavors kind of gal. Last year is was the caramel brulee latte, and this year it’s the chestnut praline latte.

However, in an effort to kick what could become a bad habit, I’ve started experimenting more with my coffee at home. I know many people love the peppermint mocha, and I greatly prefer the white chocolate version. It’s not quite as bitter as the dark chocolate.

When you can have your favorite holiday drink at home, and it’s actually GOOD for you? I call that a win.

Ingredients


Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a large, or single-serve blender and whip.
  2. Serve immediately.
  3. *NOTES: My cacao butter comes in 1oz cubes, so I used one cube for this recipe. I roughly chopped it, and softened it in the microwave for about 45 seconds. I use Truvia packets for my coffee, and used 2 packets for this recipe. I don’t like my coffee too sweet, so adjust the sweetness to your liking.


How easy was that? Now go brew yourself some coffee, and bottoms-up, baby.
