I've been drinking this delicious coffee mixed with marine collagen powder, organic coconut oil and cinnamon for the past few weeks, and I'm obsessed.

Since I've been working from home for over six weeks now, I've been drinking more coffee. It just feels cozy to be sipping on hot coffee while I work from the couch or my home office in my sweatpants. 

I typically drink black coffee, but one morning I was craving a little flavor in my coffee. I mixed up this coffee combination, and it became a daily drink. 

I love it because it's giving me some much-needed nutrients in the morning, and I feel like the added fat helps keep my blood sugar more stable. Plus there are tons of health and beauty benefits in the ingredients in this coffee.

Here's the benefits of each of my coffee add ins:

Collagen: Collagen is a long-chain amino acid and it's the most prevalent protein in the body. It gives your skin elasticity, makes your hair healthy and is necessary for connective tissue. Collagen powder can improve skin health, bone and joint health, and can help with hormone balance and digestion. 

I make sure that I buy wild caught, non-GMO marine collagen. I prefer Premium Marine Collagen Peptides or Vital Proteins Marine Collagen. They both mix with hot or cold drinks really easily.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is one of the richest sources of saturated fat with medium chain triglycerides, which are used as a quick source of energy, improve brain health and improve blood cholesterol. It also contains lauric acid, which help kill harmful bacteria and pathogens.

Cinnamon: Cinnamon can help lower blood sugar levels, reduce heart disease risk, it's loaded with antioxidants, it has anti-inflammatory properties, it's beneficial for brain function and it may protect against cancer.
