If you’ve followed the “real food” movement over the last couple years, you’ve probably noticed many people adding butter to their coffee.
But why? Adding healthy fats such as ghee or coconut oil not only gives the coffee extra flavor and cream, these natural saturated fats are also great sources of extra protein, nutrients and amino acids.
Our HANAH Super Brew recipe is a stimulatingly smooth blend of coffee, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, and a heaping tablespoon of HANAH ONE. The healthy fats and adaptogenic herbs (such as ashwagandha) in this blend provide for a sustained release of energy without the crash or jittery side effects of straight caffeine intake.
What makes it special
- HANAH ONE: A proprietary superfood blend of 30 wild-harvested, hand-picked botanicals in a base of honey and grass-fed ghee designed by Ayurvedic principles. HANAH ONE contains ashwagandha, which has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-stress properties. Full list of herbs and ingredients here.
- Coconut Oil: Coconut oil contains a high percentage of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides), which the body burns as a pure energy source far more efficiently than proteins, starches or sugars. Coconut oil has numerous other benefits: It’s great for skin and hair; improves digestion and boosts immunity against a host of infections and diseases.
- Ghee: Not only is ghee a healthy source of essential fats, but it also works as a transport device and boosts the health benefits of all the foods digested with it. Ghee, especially Ayurvedic ghee, is loaded with omega 3 and omega 9 essential fatty acids, and it is a great source of Vitamins A, D, E, K. Ghee is also ideal for fighting free radicals. Ghee is loaded with the healthy fats of butter, minus the lactose, whey or casein. Ghee activates the digestive system and speeds up the breakdown of foods in the stomach.
