Even black coffee lovers like myself can’t resist the siren song of a delicious creamy latte from time to time.
What I can resist, however, is the storm of crap that comes with the concoction in most lattes made in restaurants and coffee shops…commercial dairy products, partially hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, refined sugar and preservatives. No thanks!
After doing lots of research and recipe testing at home, I was thrilled to find a healthy latte recipe that’s easy to make, dairy-free and tastes DE-LISH!
You ready for it?
WHAT MAKES IT HEALTHY?
Coconut oil is high in medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs), particularly one called lauric acid.
Our bodies convert lauric acid into a substance called monolaurin, which is a highly beneficial antiviral and antibacterial compound that destroys a wide variety of disease-causing organisms.
Also, research has shown that the type of fat in coconut oil helps the body produce energy, and it may increase healthy (HDL) cholesterol levels. BOOM-SHAKALAKA!
Cheers to enjoying a creamy latte that’s fresh, javalicious and free of unhealthy ingredients!
With love and gratitude,
