Root to Rise Coffee: The Benefits of Adding Fat to Your Morning Joe
Putting fat such as ghee and coconut milk or cream into your coffee helps to metabolize the caffeine more slowly, keeping you from getting jittery and then crashing. It also assists in brain function and boosts energy. Enjoy the buzzzzzzz.

2 cups freshly brewed coffee
1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk or grass-fed cream

2 tablespoons grass-fed ghee

Tip: This coffee is wonderful as is, but it’s also delicious served with about 1/2 tablespoon of honey, maple syrup, or your favorite unprocessed sweetener.
