Fall Flavors: My Favorite Vanilla Latte Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With autumn’s arrival, I bring out my bullet blender and blend up my favorite homemade quick and easy vanilla latte recipe.  Every time I share this yummy healthier (at least I think so) version of a hot vanilla latte, I get a good response from my readers.  Autumn has arrived, so here it is again…but first a short discussion about the recent controversy about whether or not coconut oil is healthy to put in your coffee.  finishI love to blend organic hot black coffee with organic virgin coconut oil, vanilla extract and a few other key ingredients that create a tasty hot latte that takes under a minute to prep and make.  Plus, a few years ago several fitness trainers I used to see told me that they believe that adding coconut oil to your coffee can help with cognitive function making one feel a bit more focused during the day. I had also read in several articles that the type of saturated fat in coconut oil is made up of medium-chain triglycerides that may help the body produce energy, which jived with my trainers’ beliefs. Yay and yum!

But then a few months ago, several articles on coconut oil questioned the health benefits and that had me rethinking this favorite recipe of mine that I especially love when the weather cools and fall arrives.

So I was happy to find a recent article that explains the pros and potential cons of too much coconut oil.  After reading this informative article in Health Ambition’s “Coconut Oil in Coffee: Is It A Good Idea?” I have decided to still enjoy my beloved Lusicious Latte, but in moderation, much like we should practice with a lot of the foods and drinks we consume.  Check out that article for more details and check out my recipe that I continue to love, especially now that autumn has arrived!  Hooray!

Here is how I made mine….
