How To Make A Healthy Cup Of Coffee

I love coffee. I was pessimistic about it's effect on my health but then I deep dived into the research. Coffee has a tangible impact on helping you avoid disease and live longer. Which was music to my ears.

When it's warm, I make homemade cold brew. Which is outrageously tasty. I don't know why you can't buy the same product.

And when it's cool, I have two versions of hot coffee. One I order and one I make. 

Healthy Coffee Recipes

I order long blacks with cinnamon. No sugar or dairy, just clean black coffee with one of the best sources of antioxidants.

Occasionally, when I want something more filling, I make a vegan Bulletproof. The fats from coconut oil and cacao butter give my brain energy, boost my mood and help me tackle the to-do-list.

Vegan Bulletproof Coffee

  • Takes 3 minutes
  • Makes 1 cup


  • Long black coffee
  • Cacao butter - 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil - 1 teaspoon


  • Brew or buy a long black
  • Add the good fats and blend until it's caramel and creamy
  • Enjoy, optionally add some cinnamon
