We are heavy coffee drinkers in our house. In fact, we love coffee so much that when God gave us an opportunity for a home-based business that sells coffee, we jumped on it! (And the bags are 16oz)
Our first coffee transition was to a locally roasted coffee that is sold in stores.
After a search for coffee sacks, we found a new coffee brewer locally, that also gives away their bags (score!). We love them so much, we still buy coffee from them also, and mix it with our healthy coffee…or I get their decaf for my dinner snack.
A few years ago, I got DH this really neat book from a yard sale. And I bought it for a nickel. So yes- you CAN get something for a nickel!
Our favorite recipe in here is Grog- it is hot and spiced and makes you feel like you went back in time to Scandinavia or Ireland during winter.
I have been researching Renaissance Fair garb for November so I am a bit nostalgic and want a wool cape- but I will settle for some Grog- made THM style.
BULLET PROOF COFFEE GROG
- 2 cups freshly brewed coffee (preferably organic)
- 1-2 TBS unsalted grass-fed butter
- 2 TBS Coconut oil
- Stevia to taste (I often leave this out unless I want a dessert drink)
- 1/8 tsp of each ground spice: cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves
- 1 small strip orange peel
- 1 small strip lemon peel
- 1 tsp rum extract (opt. I don’t use)
Pour 2 cups of coffee in your blender, add all ingredients EXCEPT orange and lemon peels. Blend until emulsified and frothy. (This is about 2 minutes with my blender, but it may be faster in yours.)
In your mug, place the peels and pour the grog mix over them. Let sit for 1 minute and enjoy!
*You can take the peels out after a few minutes or you can leave them in, just don’t forget they are there and gulp your last swallow of coffee- lemon peel feels really bad going down your throat!
Happy Fall! cozy up to a fireplace with this steamy-healthy coffee. Since it is an S, it would really rock with this brownie pizza from Stacy!
