One of my favorite ways to enjoy MCT oil is in a cup of coffee.
Now, I much prefer to make my own coffee drinks at home, but it did take me some time to get used to the routine of it. Sometimes, I still pack my own coffee in a reusable cup and take it with me running errands. I also love to invite my girlfriends over to my house for a coffee date so I can show off my favorite coffee recipes.
You can easily make MCT coffee at home too and my guess is that you’ll come to like this ritual as much as I do.
My Peppermint Mocha recipe is a favorite of the season, and not only highlights the creamy luxury of MCT oil creamer but offers some fiber from the cacao and fresh mint that fits into my High Fiber Keto lifestyle in addition. It’s truly a win-win and so delicious!
