Can other fats mix like cream?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Mixing cream in tea, coffee, or soups tastes great and is a nice way to increase fat. When I use other fats they mostly float on top instead of mix with the liquid. Cream always tastes great with anything, but (especially raw) cream is my most expensive source of fat. Is there a way to get coconut oil, lard, suet or something else to behave like cream?

Tried it as well, when you have some quality butter, it's ace!

First, steep 2 tea bags in 1 cup of boiled water for 5 minutes. (I do this right in the blender, and then fish out the teabags for the next step) Then, in your blender combine the hot tea, 2-3 tbsp coconut oil, an egg yolk, and stevia if needed. Blend 30 seconds, or until smooth and frothy. Recipe doubles easily if you have a big enough mug!

The closest I can think of is to use coconut milk. Otherwise, you would need some sort of emulsifier to get the pure fats to mix with water.

Coconut oil, lard and suet will all mix in easily if you also include a raw egg yolk. (Raw egg yolk is an emulsifier) I mix it all in the blender- chai tea is so delicious this way!

Another alternative would be to add butter, so you end up with something like Butter Tea. Whole milk + butter.
