Step aside Starbucks: gut-healing cinnamon coconut latte

12 October, 2018

Delicious, gut healing, and, well...coffee. 

You've probably heard of bulletproof coffee (you know, that coffee you put grass-fed butter and MCT oil in to deliver a hit of health fats to fuel your brain, keep you full, and delight your taste buds). 

Well, this is a bit like that. But with extra benefits of grass-fed collagen powder (hello gut healing), Ceylon cinnamon (it's the 'true' cinnamon with actual health benefits), vanilla powder (errm...delicious) and ghee (it's clarified butter, so it's had the lactose and dairy solids removed, so it's suitable for paleo dieters, and people who are generally intolerant to dairy). 

 

PLUS...we've made this with Four Sigmatic's Mushroom Coffee. 

This deserves it's own heading. That's because functional mushrooms are one of the world’s most scientifically studied superfoods – and no, they don't taste like mushrooms (fun fact: chaga mushrooms were used as a coffee replacement during WW2 in Finland).

 

Recently, science has focused on lion’s mane’s exceptional regenerative effects on our nervous system, which go hand-in-hand with its nootropic (cognitive boosting) effects. Combine that with the powerful antioxidants, anti-viral effects, and immune-boosting properties of chaga mushrooms, then top if off with rhodiola root (one of the most potent adaptogens) and your average cup of Joe has transformed into a health and productivity-boosting brew! 

Another fun fact...

You can get a whole box of Mushroom Coffee and a jar of Happy Butter Ghee in The Paleo Box. What a coincidence! 

 

To make it for two, you'll need: 

  •  Two sachets Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee 

  • 1 tbsp Happy Butter ghee

  • 1 scoop unflavoured collagen powder (we love Primal Collagen)

  • 1/2 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon (add more to taste)

  • Large pinch vanilla powder

 

Method: 

1) Pour the coffee sachets into a blender and add two mugs of boiling water. Add the other ingredients and blitz.

2) Thank us later.
