Which would be a better choice for my coffee...raw goat's milk or coconut milk? By better choice I mean...more vitamins/minerals etc. P.S. I dont drink my coffee too hot...so "raw" wont be harmed

you could try both at the same time as an experiment...best of both worlds?

No problem! I love the coconut enthausiasm here but goat milk does not get enough love!

Goat milk then, who wants chunky coconut milk in their coffee?

It must be nice to be so dialed into paleo that you're scrutinizing your coffee additives for optimal nutrition. ;) Also... Unless you're drinking near body temperature coffee, you're denaturing all sorts of proteins/enzymes when you add it to coffee.

I guess I was looking for which one would give me the best bang for the buck. I was thinking maybe the Goat's milk because of enzymes and good ratio fat and protein.

I'd say go with the one you prefer more. The logic being that your coffee additives aren't the keystone of your diet. Who really cares if you put in the most nutrient-packed "cream" you can, it's still a tablespoon or two per day, dwarfed by the rest of your diet.

Sort of a non-answer, I know, but hopefully just a reality check of sorts.

Goat all the way. I love me some coconut but goat milk, especially raw, is far more nutritious and IMO tastier.

It has a bit of MCTs like coconut, but more selenium, B vitamins, Vit. A, Calcium, Potassium... not to mention protein, CLA (if grass-fed), immune supporting compounds, prebiotics... Goes on and on.

I didn't know a coconut could actually produce milk. I thought only mammals could do that. That being said, I guess go with the goats milk.

They have different nutrient profiles. I wouldn't say that, vitamin and mineral-wise, one is better than the other. Coconut milk is much higher in fat and overall calories for an equivalent serving, if that matters one way or the other.

Maybe alternate between the two in order to get the benefits of both?
