How about a nutrient dense caffeine infusion? I thought so.
What you will need:
2 Tbsp, plus 2 tsp Great Lakes unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup espresso
1 1/2 cups brewed organic coffee
1 cup whipping cream (or half and half)
1/3 cup unrefined sugar, maple syrup or honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
How to do it:
Step 1: Mix the water and gelatin together with a fork and let it sit for approximately 10 min.
Step 2: Make your espresso and coffee.
Step 3: Melt the sweeter and coconut oil in your hot coffee and then stir in the gelatin/water mix.
Step 4: Stir in the cream and then pour mixture into ice cube trays (generously oiled with coconut oil) and refrigerate until firm (approx 4 hours).
Step 5: Once firm turn out into storage container.
Perfect for when you need some coffee to give you the energy to make your coffee….or for when you simply don’t have the time : )
