The Latte Fake-out Coffee

I had this coffee at a local shop recently and wow, it’s good. Not wanting to step back into a daily coffee shop habit I asked the barista the proportions of ingredients she used so I could make this at home.  I’m not a nutritionist so I won’t wade into the merits of good fats and bad fats but from what I understand this combo of butter and coconut oil is supposed to do a body good.  What I do know though is that this coffee is creamy like a latte with a smooth mouth feel, didn’t need sugar and as a bonus it kept me full for hours. It tastes like a treat.  I’ve heard this can also be done with tea.

12 oz. of hot brewed coffee of your choice
1 tsp (5 grams) butter
1 Tbs coconut oil (I melted it first in the microwave)

Toss all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process for about 20 seconds until combined and slightly frothy.

Enjoy! I was already scarfing this down and then realized maybe a pic would be nice. Oops.

For the freshest coffee I recommend grinding your own beans. I love the Hamilton Beach Custom Grind Hands-Free Coffee Grinder. Just fill to the line for the amount of cups you want to brew, hit the button and let it go. No fuss and no over or underground beans.
