Ever wonder whether the coconut is a fruit or a nut? It’s definitely not milk, right? True, but it can certainly be turned into milk, serving as a smooth and delicious substitute. In fact, Kahwa Coffee is proud to now offer coconut milk as an option at all locations.
The coconut-crazy among us are aware of its benefits, like being a positive source of healthy fats. The obsessed might even know that the coconut is a kind of fruit known as a drupe, which places it in the same family as coffee. That means this pairing of the two makes perfect sense.
There’s many reasons why coconut milk is great. Those healthy fats we mentioned include lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid that the body can use for energy. It also has antibacterial and antiviral properties. These fats also help fuel the brain, giving an added boost to your coffee! Coconut milk’s other MCTs can help you lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure, and prevent heart disease. Diet conscious? They also increase metabolism, fat burning, and leave you feeling full.
For the athletes among us, the magnesium and potassium certainly don’t hurt, they actually help repair muscles! And the electrolytes help hydrate. It’s also rich in fibers, vitamins, and minerals. Add all of these benefits to your cup of joe, and get supercharged. Suddenly Joe becomes Clark — Kent that is — and eventually the glasses come off and it’s Superman!
Everything in moderation though — too much of a good thing is still a bad thing — except coffee, of course! Remember to always drink lots and lots of Good Coffee.
