Tea Makes a Great Wake-Me-Up
Hello Dear Ones,
This will be a short post. I just wanted to quickly share with you the full-fat tea I drink each morning. It’s my personal spin on bulletproof tea (which is Bulletproof coffee for us tea drinkers).
For a long time I fell under the belief (as many fitness enthusiasts do) that fat is bad for you. It isn’t bad for you. Just like protein and carbs aren’t bad for you. Very little is actually “bad” for you.
But, I digress.
Onto the full-fat tea!
Each morning when I get up, I turn on my electric kettle to boil water for my tea. This morning cup of tea has changed dramatically in recent months. It began as caffeine-free tea with honey every morning and has recently turned into fully caffeinated decadence.
However, I still only drink this one cup of tea with caffeine. I’m pretty sure that with two children tagging teaming me with wake-ups, caffeine is as much for their sanity and mine.
Full-Fat Tea–Decadence in My Cup
First the recipe. The ingredients are super simple, and to a point are up to the person making the full-fat tea.
Here are the ingredients I use:
- Boiling water
- 1 teabag of Irish Breakfast Tea (though I enjoy mixing 1 bag of IBT with 1 bag of Chai)
- 2 TBS Swerve sweetener (granular)
- 1 Scoop Collagen Peptides
- Heavy whipping cream (the amount is up to you–I generally use 1/3 to 1/2 of a cup)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 TBS butter (grass-fed)
- 1 TBS (or to your liking) Coconut Oil
Place collagen peptides and 1 TBS of sweetener in the bottom of your cup.
Add boiling water and stir.
Place tea bags in the water and make as directed.
While the tea is steeping:
Using a milk frother mix 1 TBS sweetener, the vanilla, and the heavy cream in a separate container from your tea.
When your tea is to your preferred strength, add the butter and coconut oil.
Allow to melt for a minute, then using the frother mix the tea.
Pour tea into prepared cream mixture.
This is an important step.
The tea MUST be added to the cream.
If you want to, carefully stir (with a spoon) the tea and cream mixture. I don’t generally, because the cream is a wonderful treat.
I enjoy this tea first thing in the morning, curled in my father’s recliner, with my Bible (and if time allows, a good book).
