Most people love drinking a cup of delicious and warm coffee in the morning and with good reason. Coffee can be immensely beneficial to the overall health. Also, the caffeine it contains can help you start your metabolism.
However, people can only acquire these healthy benefits if they drink it in moderation. This is the only way you can protect the heart from various illnesses. So, if you are someone who loves coffee and wants to lose some weight, you are in luck.
By adding a few simple ingredients in your morning coffee, you can speed up your metabolism and melt all that stubborn fat. All you will need to lose some weight is coconut oil, honey, and cinnamon. That’s it! But, before we talk about the recipe, here is why this mixture can help you shed some pounds.
Why Use Coconut Oil in Your Coffee
Coconut oil has countless health benefits. Unlike the rest of the oils, it contains medium-chain fatty acids and not long-chain fatty acids. This is immensely important since the body metabolizes the medium chain-ones very differently.
In addition, it boosts the metabolism and digestion. According to a study, one to two tablespoons of medium-chain fats increased the daily expenditure of energy the body uses by up to 5%. In other words, you might be able to shed a total of 120 calories per day.
Furthermore, adding coconut oil to your coffee, won’t make it greasy or taste too much like coconut. Of course, the coffee will taste somewhat differently, but the impact won’t be as negative as most people imagine.
On the contrary, it will provide the coffee with some creamy vanilla and cinnamon flavor.
In fact, it will contain no preservatives, no palm-oil, and best of all, NO artificial sweeteners. Therefore, make sure to combine this delicious coffee with a healthy and nutritious breakfast if you want to start your day with a lot of energy.
Coffee Coconut Creamer Recipe
Here is what you will need to make this amazing creamer.
- one teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- half a cup of raw organic honey or stevia
- 3/4 cups of organic soft coconut oil
- a teaspoon of organic cinnamon powder
- a tablespoon of organic cocoa powder
Add all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk them together until they properly combine. Next, add them to a glass jar or a storage container of your choice that has a lid. After you have prepared all your ingredients, start brewing your favorite organic coffee.
You will need about 2 cups of coffee, not more. To it, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the mixed coconut oil creamer and let the hot coffee dissolve it. If you want, feel free to add a teaspoon of butter to make the cream more flavorful and even more creamy.
Lastly, in a blender blend the coffee together with the creamer on high for just a couple of seconds. Five seconds are enough. Now your special coffee is ready. Enjoy!
Honey and Weight Loss
Yes, honey contains sugar. But, not the type of sugar you might think. For the body to digest the sugar, it uses the already stored minerals and vitamins to dissolve the fats. During this process, the body reduces the number of minerals and vitamins it has.
However, digesting honey is completely different from the rest of the sugars. Honey contains potent nutrients like potassium, iron, zinc, calcium, sodium, and phosphorus which can balance the digestion process between the nutrients and the sugar.
Furthermore, honey contains plenty of vitamins such as riboflavin, folate, vitamin B6, C, and niacin. According to research, honey can boost the levels of the good cholesterol in the body and reduce the level of stress in the heart.
As a result, people who consume honey can lead a more healthy and active lifestyle and even lose some weight. But, to obtain these benefits you must purchase raw, organic, unpasteurized, and unfiltered honey.
