Coconut Oil Coffee Hip2Save

If you’re looking for a unique, healthy, and all natural way to jazz up your morning coffee, try blending your coffee with coconut oil! Although it may sound strange at first, the result is a frothy, rich, and smooth cup of coffee – perfect to start the day!

Why coconut oil?

Coconut oil is a healthy saturated fat known to prevent high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It improves digestion, energy, and increases the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Replacing processed creamer with high quality organic coconut oil can offer some amazing health benefits!

The method: Using a blender, blend one cup of hot coffee with a tablespoon of coconut oil for about 20 seconds. You could also add a natural sweetener or vanilla extract, or cinnamon. I actually use a teaspoon of raw local honey to combat allergies.

Blended Coconut Oil Coffee
I was recently intrigued by a family member who posted a photo of coconut oil in her coffee and I decided to try it for myself! I now love drinking my coffee this way and feel better about giving up processed creamer.

If you’re interested in trying an even creamier latte type coffee at home, try adding a tablespoon of grass fed butter. Collin is actually a big fan of this Bulletproof Coffee – read more about it and the health benefits here. To make this version you’ll need to blend one cup of coffee with 1 tablespoon coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of grass-fed butter. You can also customize it with a little Stevia, cinnamon, or vanilla. The result is an incredible creamy latte like cup of coffee.

NOTE FROM COLLIN:  If you want to make it even creamier, you can also add in a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream (in addition to the coconut oil and butter!). Yes, I like a very creamy cup of coffee. 🙂 I have been drinking this Bulletproof Coffee for a couple of weeks now and I’m lovin’ it. I feel very satisfied during the day having ingested lots of healthy fats in the morning and my energy level is rockin’.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
