Before we get into this delicious recipe below, how about we understand why ketosis is beneficial & why we love organic MCT oil in our coffee?
Ketosis is a state of metabolism, which breaks down fat for energy. The quickest way to ketosis, is through a low-carb or ‘ketogenic’ diet. This is where MCT oil coffee’s come in handy.
MCTs found in coconuts, are immediately converted into ketones that can be utilised as a source of energy by the brain, heart and nervous system.
More to the point they can easily be added to your daily coffee & assist in concentration, productivity, weight-loss, satiation, gut health and overall metabolism support.
Even if you’re not following a ketogenic diet, the benefits of Coffee and MCT combined will help you to fire on all cylinders!
Plus organic ghee creates a synergistically powerful addition to kick start the day.
Melrose Keto Coffee Recipe
Place coffee, ghee, MCT oil, and boiling water into a small blender and blend on high speed for about 10 seconds until coffee is creamy and smooth. Remove from blender and serve immediately.
Make sure your blender is suitable for hot liquids. If not, then blend all ingredients above with a small amount of warm water to emulsify, then top up with boiling water to serve
*You can use any kind of black coffee. If starting with a long black, rather than a shot of espresso, simply remove the 80mL of hot water from the recipe
If you are new to using MCT oil, only add 1 teaspoon into your MCT Coffee, if you have been using MCT oil for sometime, you can increase your intake to 1 tablespoon per day, but gradually increasing a teaspoon at a time over a period of a few weeks
Feel free to personalise the recipe to your taste by adding a pinch of cinnamon, maca powder or turmeric for extra benefits.
