Salted Maca Mocha

So I never post to this blog.... I know that I am one of the worst bloggers out there, but thats ok! We all have our strengths and our weaknesses...  I try to get as much info out there as I can on Instagram and so many people ask me..."can I find that recipe on your blog?!?!"  I always say, "nah, I don't really blog"...but today...TODAY! I SHALL BLOG (or "post" for those of you bloggers that like to get particularly technical about the terminology)...just don't expect me to make a habit of this...I can't be held accountable for allowing months to pass before my next post....

Back to the post...

We don't really get to experience the seasons here in Southern California and I do miss those chunky sweaters, infinity scarves, fallen leaves and hot breakfast coffee drinks :)  I tend to always grab an iced coffee from the local coffee shop on my way to work if I need (or just "want" as it usually is) a mid-morning pick me up after my usual BPC (bulletproof coffee).

I have experimented with all sorts of concoctions in my Bulletproof Coffee from plain old grassed butter and coconut oil, to MCT oil, turmeric and cayenne pepper.  We see lots of awesome recipes out there for different variations and I wanted to share with you one of my favorite combos: SALTED MACA MOCHA.
Check out WellnessMama's blog (one of my FAVs) about the benefits of Maca...

I used to work for *bux for about 5 years as a Store Manager and I like to think that I have a pretty decent handle on this coffee making thing.  So if you're so inclined, give this recipe a go and let me know how you like it!

You will need:

  • 10oz French Pressed Coffee (or just whatever coffee you have, however your favorite brew method is:) I use all different brands, but this morning I used Caveman Coffee Co. White Gold. (I am not an affiliate, I just happened to try and like their product two weekends ago at the Taste of Paleo event. :)
  • 1 tablespoon MCT Oil (again, I am using Caveman Coffee Co. MCT oil this morning and its Awesome!!)
  • 1 tablespoon Organic, Grass-fed Ghee (I love Tinstar Foods Ghee, its my favorite!  But if you like it a little frothier and can handle it, go ahead and use grass-fed butter like Kerrygold.)
  • 1 teaspoon Raw Maca Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cacao Powder 
  • 1 teaspoon Organic Vanilla Extract 
  • sprinkle of salt

*OPTIONAL - dash of maple syrup (if you like your drinks on the slightly sweeter side)

Add all the ingredients together (except for the salt) and blend until frothy!  I blend mine up in my Nutribullet for about 15 seconds.  Pour in a mug and top the froth with a dash of sea salt.  Since you got it nice and frothy, it stays at the top and as you sip, you get that nice subtle, salty flavor mixed with the chocolate. :)

I should mention if you are new to bulletproof coffee, start with 1tsp each of MCT oil and ghee...your body may react negatively to the large amount of fat until you are more fat adapted. <3

What a great fall pick-me-up!  I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
