Here’s more from PaleoHacks about the healthy benefits of this coffee:
Unsweetened cocoa powder adds a nice chocolatey background to this coffee, and is also known for its flavonoid properties, helping to reduce inflammation in the body. One tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa provides a dose of iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc, which all help to assist the immune system.
The best part of this recipe has to be the coconut milk ice cubes. Why use boring traditional ice when you can make coconut milk cubes that won’t water down your coffee?
Instead, as the cubes melt, they create a creamy texture perfect for sipping until the last drop…
…I recommend adding all of the ingredients to a blender before pouring over the ice cubes. This helps to combine all of the flavors and creates a frothy texture to the coffee.
