There’s no better way to kick your morning into gear than with the perfect cup of coffee. You may have perfected a daily ritual when it comes to your morning brew, but you don’t have to be limited!

  1. Cinnamon

A dash of this cabinet-dweller can go a long way in giving your morning cup of unique coffee a little boost of flavor. Cinnamon in coffee is not only delicious but has beneficial blood sugar lowering effects. For best results: Heat 1 cup of almond milk on the stove. Once warm, combine with 1 cup of Chameleon Vanilla Concentrate in a mug. Sprinkle cinnamon on top for a tasty finish to an easy, at-home latte.

 

  1. Butter & Coconut Oil

It might seem an unlikely pair, but butter coffee has quickly become a favorite of paleo lovers (or as we like to call them, Paliens) and health nuts. Adding grass-fed butter and coconut oil to your coffee helps to naturally boost energy and increase metabolism, promoting fat loss. Butter also provides a balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats that work to improve brain function, making it the perfect unnique cup of coffee to begin your busy day.

For best results: Combine 2 TBSP of grass-fed butter, 1 TBSP of coconut oil and 1-10oz. bottle of Chameleon Black Coffee in a blender. Blend for 10 seconds to create frothy texture, and then ready to serve!

 

  1. Coconut milk & Vanilla extract

For the coffee drinker who prefers a little sweetness in their cup, this combination is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. This easy homemade creamer provides rich flavor to transform an ordinary Cup o’ Joe to exciting and delicious coffee. For best results: Combine 1 (14-ounce) can of full fat coconut milk and ½ tsp of pure vanilla extract in a blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds. Pour desired amount into a coffee mug filled with Chameleon Mocha Coffee.119408251959226.61tPfswwC0KsSzx2PwNs_height640

  1. Egg

Scandinavian egg coffee is a traditional brew method made popular in Norway and Sweden. Though an egg may seem to be a strange ingredient in your morning brew, the result yields clarified coffee that packs a protein punch. For best results: Boil 3 cups of water. Combine 1 egg, 3 TBSP of coffee grounds, and 3 TBSP of cold water in a separate bowl. Stir to create a paste. Mix paste into boiling water and allow the mixture to simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of cold water. Strain into pitcher, or individual cup, and enjoy!

 

  1. Maple Syrup

Another great option if you’re in the mood for something sweet, adding maple syrup to your cup of coffee layers in a smooth, natural sweetness without a harsh, sugary taste. It’s a simple addition that makes a tasty difference! For best results: Combine in a blender with butter, coconut oil, and Chameleon Black Coffee for a sweeter version of butter coffee.
