It's always a pleasure collaborating with one of our favorite LA bloggers, Britney, known to you as @fittybrittty. Her love for health and fitness always inspires us to keep setting and reaching our own goals. Britney recently started her first round of Whole30 and shared with us that she managed to stay energized through all 30 days. Keep reading on how she managed to stay compliant while still giving in to her morning collagen coffee addiction. As told by Britney:
I don’t think there will ever be a time in my life where I’ll truly enjoy just black coffee. I’m here for the add-ins! But I’ve found a way to make a delicious latte-like coffee with only 4 ingredients and all of them are Whole30-compliant. I truly look forward to this every single morning!
And for those wondering, I’m not currently doing a round of Whole30, but I still enjoy this every day as my breakfast. The collagen and cashews provide protein, I’m getting amazing benefits from the fat in the coconut butter and cashews, and the dates add a dash of natural sweetness!
And if you’re wondering about the cashew part of this recipe, it came out of pure laziness and not wanting to waste my homemade cashew milk! So instead of making a batch of cashew milk to use in my coffee, I just add raw cashews into my Vita-mix. The hot coffee is hot enough to have the cashews combine perfectly into a smooth creamy consistency! It truly is magic, I promise.
Interested in a cup of Creamy Cashew Collagen Coffee yourself? Here's what you need to achieve a fix of your own.
- 8-12 ounces of freshly brewed hot coffee
- 1 scoop unflavored collagen peptides (Britney recommends this one and this one)
- 8-10 raw organic cashews
- 1 tbsp coconut butter, melted
- 1-2 organic fresh dates, pits removed
- Brew coffee, set aside.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients into a high-powered blender (we suggest something powerful like a Vita-mix or Blendtec).
- Pour in the hot brewed coffee, close the lid of the blender and blend on high for 1 minute.
- Pour immediately and enjoy!
