PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: —
Some days I wake up really hungry, and other days I don’t. On days when fasting until noon or later sounds like a horrible idea, this is one of my go-to breakfasts. It’s mega fatty and keeps you full for hours on end, making it awesome for days that are so busy that lunch may not be an option. You can have the latte only or pair it with the fat bombs. I like to keep little fat bombs like these in the freezer for fast access so my mornings unfold with ease!
You’ll notice that I call for maca and chaga or ashwagandha powders, all superfoods with a purpose, but they are not required for the latte to turn out well. Maca is an herb that helps with hormone balance; chaga is a type of mushroom that helps balance stress and supports immune function; and ashwagandha is an herb that helps support adrenal function. When added to recipes like this, or to homemade keto ice pops, shakes, smoothies, and fatty coffees, they boost the overall nutrition without affecting the taste. And hey, if I can support my adrenals by drinking a matcha latte, I’m all for it!
CHOCOLATE FAT BOMBS:
1 tablespoon coconut butter
2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
½ teaspoon confectioners’-style erythritol, or 1 drop liquid stevia
1 cup (240 ml) boiling water
2 tablespoons collagen peptides or protein powder
1 tablespoon coconut butter, coconut oil, or nut butter
1 teaspoon erythritol, or 2 drops liquid stevia
1 teaspoon matcha powder
½ teaspoon maca powder (optional)
¼ teaspoon chaga powder or ashwagandha powder (optional)
1¼ cups (300 ml) full-fat coconut milk, hot
- To prepare the fat bomb, place all the ingredients in a bowl and either set out in the sun to melt or microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. Once the coconut butter has melted, whisk thoroughly and transfer to a paper muffin liner, a silicone mold, a plastic container—anything will do. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes, or until hardened.
- Meanwhile, place the boiling water, collagen, coconut butter, sweetener, matcha, and maca and chaga, if using, in a 20-ounce (600-ml) or larger mug. Whisk until the ingredients are incorporated and the lumps are gone, about 1 minute. Stir in the hot coconut milk.
- Serve the latte with the chilled fat bomb.
STORE IT: Store the latte in the fridge for up to 3 days and the fat bomb in the freezer for up to 1 month. The fat bomb can be eaten directly from the freezer.
REHEAT IT: Transfer the latte to a 10-ounce (295-ml) or larger microwave-safe mug and microwave for 1½ minutes, or place the latte in a saucepan, cover, and reheat over low heat for 5 minutes.
