This is an amazing keto coffee recipe with superfoods!
Our recommendation is to drink one of these per day as a meal replacement. (most people will replace their breakfast with this)
Here is a video where I walk you through how to make this …
Why Add Superfoods?
There are 2 reasons why you need to be adding superfoods to your keto coffee:
The biggest issue with the Standard Ketogenic Diet (SKD) is a lack of micronutrients.
The Standard Ketogenic Diet allows for only 5 – 10% of your calories to come from carbs. Most fruits and vegetables are primarily carbs. This means that many people doing the ketogenic diet are not getting enough micronutrients (e.g. antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, etc.) into their diet.
Superfoods will help you incorporate these important micronutrients into your ketogenic diet.
2. Prevent “very bad” cholesterol
You’ve probably heard of “good” (HDL) cholesterol and “bad” (LDL) cholesterol.
But have you heard of “very bad” (Oxidized LDL) cholesterol? This is the cholesterol that sticks to your arteries.
“Very bad” cholesterol is created when “bad” cholesterol comes into contact with a free radical. Antioxidants help our bodies get rid of free radicals. So the more antioxidants we have, the fewer free radicals we have … and the less liklihood that our “bad” cholesterol will get turned into “very bad” cholesterol.
The ketogenic diet is high in saturated fats – which will lead towards and increase in both “good” and “bad” cholesterol levels. By adding superfoods, we are adding antioxidants and helping prevent “very bad” cholesterol from being created.
What are the Best Superfoods to Add to Your Keto Coffee Recipe?
The most popular superfoods that people add are cacao, cinnamon, maca, and mushroom powder. Many people will add just 1 or 2 superfoods to their keto coffee.
But what if we add 10+ superfoods instead? That is what happens in our recipe. Our recipe has you add 1 tablespoon of Ancient Chocolate and 1 tablespoon of Ancient Delight – which contains 13 different superfoods.
Ancient Chocolate has a lot of cacao powder in it, so it tastes like cacao – which goes great in coffee.
Ancient Delight as a lot of cinnamon powder in it, so it tastes like cinnamon – which also goes great in coffee.
Turning your regular Keto Coffee Recipe into this Superfood Keto Coffee recipe takes things to an entirely different level.
