Need a change in my coffee routine

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created July 29, 2013 at 1:33 AM

Black coffee is great, don't get me wrong. Most of the time I love it, but recently I've been missing my old coffee with milk or cream, and I was wondering what is the healthiest alteration. I have added full fat greek yogurt back into my diet, but other than that no dairy. Is heavy cream a good option? Or would coconut milk be better? I've tried bulletproof and although its good I really can't see myself drinking it regularly.

Believe I've read several places where anything over 104° F starts to change things. I like coffee hot so mine is typically 140-150°, enough that I won't waste raw cream on.

Agreed. It should have one ingredient.

I love coconut cream in my coffee or green tea. I think it tastes better than heavy cream.

@Carole:Indeed. Bulletproof coffee is awesome, if you think about it, churned up heavy cream is what butter is, adding MCT oil or coconut oil just gives you a nice burst of energy, so this answer should be upvoted - so you can tell how politicized upvoting/downvoting has become when a proper answer is downvoted by the haterz. :)

I thought pasteurization was at a higher temperature?

Even Safeway has organic cream for 2.99, and Organic Valley is maybe 3.99

Most major supermarkets will have some sort of pastured or at the least organic cream.

Can it be heavy cream directly from the supermarket or am I going to have to look around for a raw heavy cream seller?

Just look for heavy cream without additives. Read the label. A few at the grocery store have stabilizers and weird stuff, most have carageenan. Trader Joe's and my co-op both have organic heavy cream without additives.

If you aren't lactose intolerant, do heavy cream. If you are, do coconut cream, which is thicker than coconut milk.

Raw cream won't be very raw if you put in hot coffee, for that any good cream will do. You can 'cold brew' coffee and I hear it is pretty good - using raw cream with that would probably keep the enzymes in tact. wy~
