Warming up with a vanilla latte on a chilly spring morning…

is pretty much the best thing ever.

Especially if that vanilla latte tastes like dessert and is amazing for your skin, hair and nails.  Oh yeah, it could even help you lose weight.  Doesn’t get much better than that!

I made this latte with some of my favorite things:  Javazen organic coffee, organic coconut oil, and Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel from Primal Kitchen.

I was so thrilled with it that I made a short video:

And hey, if videos aren’t your thing, here’s a synopsis:

Collagen Fuel is made from the highest quality bovine collagen, which is amazing for your hair, skin and nails.  I’ve been using collagen for years now, and it has made a tremendous difference in the firmness of my skin.  For me, that’s reason enough to consume collagen daily.

I love this stuff so much I just wrote a whole post on it:

I haven’t been this excited since Jason Derulo released his last album

Coconut oil is loaded with medium chain triglycerides, which are awesome for your brain.  I find that consuming coconut oil in the am helps me feel energized and focused. If you wanted to mix things up, you could use the liquid coconut oil, which is even higher in MCTs.  Or ghee.  Or even unsalted grass fed butter, which makes it extra creamy and gives you a nice dose of fat soluble vitamins.

Balance by Javazen is my favorite coffee.  It’s not just coffee, it’s organic coffee blended with matcha and raw cacao.  Matcha and raw cacao happen to be awesome for your skin (they can actually help protect from free radical damage), and the raw cacao adds a nice chocolate undertone.  So for me this coffee is like a dream come true!

Blend them all together and you have the perfect pick me up!  Here’s the recipe:

happy, healthy and hot vanilla latte

one large mug of freshly brewed Javazen Balance

one tablespoon organic coconut oil 

two scoops Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel

Pour your hot coffee into the blender (I ❤️  my Vitamix), add coconut oil and Collagen Fuel.  Blend on high so it gets really nice and frothy.  Pour into a cute mug that makes you happy.  Enjoy!

A fun mug makes it even better!

So, can this vanilla latte help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Absolutely!

You will be happy having such a delicious treat.  The ingredients are super healthy, loaded with antioxidants, high quality protein, and healthy fat.  Which in turn support gorgeous skin, hair and nails as well as a firm, healthy body…and that’s hot!
