Paleo Cappuccino!

Just stumbled on this combo this morning, after making for dessert last night. Awesome! Not only is it amazingly filling, but it tastes every bit as creamy and delicious as Starbucks, just way less sweet--which I really prefer, actually (however, if you have some dextrose on hand, feel free to add a teaspoon or two).

Paleo Cappuccino:

3/4 c hot coffee

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 c coconut milk (or more, if you'd like--it gets really rich really quick, though, so beware)

Pour hot coffee into the cup first, add vanilla and cinnamon and mix well. Then add coconut milk. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon on top. Excellent start to the morning.

I'm interested to try doing this with chai tea instead of coffee...



  1. Yummy!
    I drink a cup (or two) of chai every morning and have recently switched from my lactose free milk to coconut milk... incredibly yummy!

  2. Are you adding coconut milk for cooking (usually comes in a can) or coconut milk for drinking (usually comes in a carton that says "beverage")?

  3. Hi Kat, I use canned--never tried the carton stuff, is there a good one that you know of? I think I've seen a brand or two around here, but they all seem to have additives.

  4. From the Everyday Paleo podcast, So Delicious is the best. I haven't tried it yet, but she says it's a different consistency, more like almond milk than the canned coconut milk.

  5. Unfortunately, I'm sensitive to guar gum (gah), so I can't handle that brand. But thanks for sharing! I'm sure it'd be delicious in coffee, and because it's not as thick, you can probably add more than I suggested here without it being too rich. If you try it out, I'd be interested to hear how it is!

  6. I'll do a comparison over the next weekend and let you know how it goes!
