Rocket fuel coffee recipe – How your morning cup of Joe can help you optimise your hormones

coffee-ingredients

Oh thy humble cup of coffee – how I art smitten with your grace, your full body and the massive kick up the arse you give me every single morning.

Whilst coffee is actually already a t-booster, wouldn’t it be nice if we could supercharge it to not only give us boundless energy every day, but to balance our hormones and push us to the peak of our health? Luckily, smarty-pants over here has done his research and come up with ‘Rocket fuel coffee’, the best cuppa you’ll ever have (probably).

For this recipe, you’ll need a blender, a mug, a teaspoon and a tablespoon. Bit hard to comprehend I know but I’m sure you’ll get there.

Ingredients

I love elaborate ingredient lists, this is a common theme you will see throughout all of my recipe posts. Get ready:

1 cup of coffee

Coffee is a well known vasodilator, which means it increases blood flow around the body by amping up nitric oxide production. This helps your testosterone levels and can take your gym workouts (and muscle pumps) to new levels. But mostly, coffee is just for giving you a huge dose of energy to attack the day.

1 tbsp coconut oil 

Literally my favourite thing in the entire world. I love coconut oil more than my own family, its uses literally know no bounds and that makes me so happy. Coconut oil is one of the healthiest sources of saturated fat you can consume. Saturated fat helps to ramp up testosterone production and you’ll even get a slight hit of iron when consuming this wonder-oil. Not too shabby.

2 tbsp honey 

Sweeter than a girl scout trying to give the hard sell on a batch of cookies, honey does more than make this beverage taste fantastic. Honey is full of anabolic compounds, containing lots of antioxidants that help to balance your hormones. A big positive of honey is that it helps your sleep, so once your kick has worn off at about 9pm you can get yourself ready for a long, deep slumber, which will boost your T-levels even further – you lucky bugger.

1/2 tsp cinnamon

You may only know cinnamon from that strange Youtube challenge or from your other half’s incessant spiced lattes. But, you should actually give cinnamon a chance. This spice has been shown to fight diabetes, help protect joints and even prevent cognitive decline. Half a teaspoon is all you need to reap the benefits.

Prep

  1. Put ingredients into blender.
  2. Press blend.
  3. Pour into mug.
  4. Pat yourself on the back for the hard graft you’ve just gone through.

      1. I try not to have sugar of any kind (because I was healing for a few years and sugar suppresses immunity – even fruit sugar can feed candidiasis infection) – but some honeys can have that healing impact – and so if you are healthy (and sounds like you are) then sweeten away.
        we do use a pure stevia powder from trader joe’s – but I have “come” to really appreciate the flavors of coffee without sugar – sometimes black – sometimes with cocoa powder, butter and unsweetened almond milk…
        and after reading this – well need to try the cinnamon.
        🙂
