Coconut Cinnamon Cold Brew
This morning brew is 100% Bali-inspired. It was simply too dang hot and humid in Bali to sip on steaming cups of coffee, instead, Kyle and I sought out huge cups of icy cold brew. With the weather (finally!) heating up in Ontario we’ve switched over to drinking this smooth and sweet cold coffee as our morning beverage of choice. I’ve always been a hot coffee kind of gal but thanks to this new recipe I’m officially a cold-brew convert.
Not only is this cold brew absolutely delicious, it’s also loaded with health benefits. These are the top 5 reasons why I start every day with a cup of this coconut cinnamon cold-brew:
New patients are always afraid that I’m going to ‘take away their coffee’ when this couldn’t be further from the truth (unless you suffer from anxiety, then we may need to discuss your overall caffeine intake as part of a lifestyle medicine approach to healing). Coffee is delicious and provides a ton of health benefits. This make-ahead cold brew gives you all the health offerings of coffee with an added boost of blood sugar balancing cinnamon.
Well-Wandering pro tip: Make sure anything you drink iced in Bali is made using ice with a hole in the middle – this means it was purchased off site and made using filtered water. Bali-belly is real you guys, you can ask my husband what happens when you eat garnishes and use tap water to rinse your tooth brush …
This morning brew tastes like our time in Bali since it was simply too dang hot and humid in Bali to sip on steaming cups of coffee. I've always been a hot coffee kind of gal but thanks to this new recipe I'm officially a cold-brew convert.
Add all of your ingredients to a large mason jar and let sit in the fridge for 24 hours. Strain, and keep the filtered cold brew in the fridge for 1 week. Drink 1/2 a cup topped with creamy homemade almond milk or coconut milk and a little extra cinnamon.
