Have you heard of “butter coffee” or “bulletproof coffee?” Inspired by the principles behind these recipes, this Power Coffee is a fantastic way to kick off the day. The principle of “fat burns fat” again comes into play here, and the combination of caffeine and healthy fats gives you energy without the side effects. You may find you’re full and energetic well into the day.

- 1 teaspoon maca or cocoa powder
- 1 pinch vanilla powder or cinnamon
