Coconut oil

Next, scoop out some organic coconut oil out of its tub. Use at least two tablespoons as a substitute for dairy products and those corn-syrup laden creamers. Even 1/4 cup is nice amount. Coconut oil has been known for its healing properties for centuries. And now modern research shows that 2 tablespoons of coconut oil a day reduces belly fat and balances out blood lipid levels. And coconut oil is good for skin care as well.

Drop the coconut oil in the warm coffee. As you can see, coconut oil and liquid doesn't mix very well! Emulsifying it in a blender makes this mixture smooth and creamy.

Next, put your sweetener in, if you'd like. It's not necessary, if you're not into sweeteners. Pictured here is a teaspoon of whipped wildflower honey. Honey has been known for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

chocolate

Add a piece of chocolate, if that's your taste! Pictured here is an ounce of 100% dark chocolate with no added saturate fats in it! Plain dark chocolate is rich flavanols, which helps improves artery health when eaten as part of an overall healthy diet. Mixed with your coffee, it tastes heavenly!
