Blender Coffee Recipe

This Blender Coffee is a fabulously satisfying way to start your day!

I’ve heard of this coffee over and over and over again. People the world over seem to be falling in love with this stuff. I’m not talking about a particular brand of coffee (although it is a brand that started all of this). I’m talking about a particular way of making your morning cup of joe.

I had never heard of it before and was lamenting having to give up dairy in my morning cup of life juice when somebody on Facebook mentioned this. And once they did, so many others chimed in saying the same thing that I eventually gave up counting the comments.

I will say that I do not care for coconut milk in coffee. I just cannot wrap my taste buds around that particular flavor combination. But enough people mentioned this (again and again) that I thought I would give it a go, particularly after a few people begged me to come up with my own recipe for it. I guess if enough people ask, there’s just no way I can say no. So, despite my dislike of coconut and coffee together, I gave it a whirl.

Apparently, the theory behind this particular type of coffee is that if you consume fat first thing in the morning, your body will start burning it. As I have no medical or nutrition training whatsoever, I cannot attest to whether this is true or not. I’m just sharing what I’ve heard about it. But I will say that some fat in the morning does tend to keep me going longer. I don’t get hungry as quickly or crave much of anything during the day if I get my biggest portion of fat at breakfast. But that’s just my personal experience.

There are many renditions of this coffee, and I will give you a few combinations that others have shared with me, in addition to the recipe I actually made.

So, after all this fuss over blended, hot coffee, I finally gave in and started experimenting…

Holy mother of coffee beans!!!! This was so crazy good! I’ll never look at a cup of coffee in quite the same way again…

    Hmm, this is interesting! I’m usually a plain, dark coffee with 1/2 & 1/2 kind of girl, meaning I don’t usually go for lattés or sweet coffee drinks. Can you describe the flavor/texture of it? Might have to try it!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kristin d – You can leave out any sweeteners, it’s great without them too. I will say that the cinnamon does give it a texture. So if you don’t like that, simply omit it or strain it out if you have a fine-meshed sieve. Otherwise, it’s pretty normal coffee. I have to say that it does leave your lips nice and moisturized! 😀

  2. Laura Stewart says:

    Have you tried coffee with butter?? I’ve heard a lot about it, too. I’m just really nervous to try the combination. I love your blog! I’m really trying to make a good effort to eat clean-er. I’ve given up smoking and diet dew. It’s my coffee creamer that I’m struggling with the most.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Laura – I haven’t tried butter because I no longer eat dairy. But if I did, I would have added about 2 tsp – 1 tbsp. of it to this along with the coconut oil. I’m sure it’s delish!

  3. Tiffany – I have to agree with you on the coconut milk and coffee thing – I love them both, soooo much, but not together. Having said that, I am somewhat of a coconut addict. I love all things coconut!!! And I too, have a bit of a latte’ habit. And I love the ritual of coffee in the morning! I view this as my morning coffee and even a little afternoon pick-me-up and treat! I can’t wait to try this recipe. And thanks for your blog…I love it!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Debbie – My pleasure! Let me know how you like the coffee! 😀

  4. I am excited to try this, because it is low in carbs & sugars. Thanks for sharing.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Pat – My pleasure! Enjoy!

  5. Huh. I don’t know…this really sounds weird. Do you taste the coconut? I wonder if you could make this into a cold blended coffee?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Megan – I don’t recommend trying this cold because the coconut oil will clump up on you. It does sound odd, but it’s really quite tasty. There is a mild coconut flavor, but the vanilla extract really helps offset it. It tastes much better than just putting coconut milk in your coffee.

  6. Melissa Shultz says:

    Very interesting! I had never heard of this until I read you blog post. I guess I’ve been living under a rock. I will have to give this a try. I gave up using half and half in my coffee a few months ago. I came across a blogger who talked about adding coconut milk and cacao to her coffee. I’ve been mixing 4 Tbs of cacao with a can of full fat coconut milk and using a tablespoon of that in my coffee when I drink it. I also add a little coconut sugar as sweetener. I love coconut milk and chocolate, so it is a winner for me. But I will definitely be trying the blended coffee thing.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Melissa – Fantastic! Let me know what you think of it!

  7. Zedda Troyer says:

    I’ve done both coconut oil & butter. I prefer butter. It seems to integrate better and isn’t as “oily”. But I do like the flavor of coconut.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Zedda – That’s good to know! I can’t have the butter myself, but I’m glad to know it’s a tasty way to enjoy this!

  8. OK I would love to try this but I canNOT stand the taste or even smell of coconut…makes me gag…what else can I use?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Connie – Butter. Skip the oil and use butter in it’s place.

  9. If you don’t like the texture of the cinnamon put it in your coffee grounds. It will flavor the coffee without the grit. I usually put about a 1/2 tablespoon to 1 tablespoon in my coffee grounds before making the coffee(10 cup pot). I have to say I love this recipe. I am a equal and creamer person and I can drink this without either so I am totally loving it.
    Thank you!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Michele – Of course!!! Why didn’t I think of that??? I think I’ll add that comment to my post. Ugg. Sometimes it’s the simplest things we miss. Gha! Thanks so much! 😀

  10. Just this morning I was thinking for the umpteenth time what I could use in my coffee in place of my favorite sugarfree vanilla coffeemate. I mostly eat a healthy diet with the exception of this delicious chemical concoction I use to start my morning. I will give the blender coffee a try because I also do not like coconut milk in my java. I tried coconut oil once upon a time but without the blender method. Crossing fingers…!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jacqui – The blender makes all the difference! Try a little butter in there too. I’m hearing back that it’s amazing with butter. I can’t do it myself, but if you can have dairy, it’s worth a shot!!

  11. It really is good! I couldn’t wait until morning to try the recipe because if my coffee is messed up then there goes my day, lol. I used a chocolate fudge Keurig cup with the coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and some monk fruit sweetener. It’s delish! I think the blender is key because it gets the coconut oil dispersed nicely. Yay- now I can wean myself off the artificial creamers! I can’t wait to try some other flavor combinations, like maybe peppermint extract and a little cocoa powder or almond extract?? Thanks, Tiffany!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jacqui – My pleasure! Any I totally understand about the test run. I did the same thing! lol

  12. UniBabble says:

    I thought blending hot liquids would cause the blender to explode…? How is this done safely?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      UniBabble – I let it cool for a bit first. It doesn’t take a lot of cooling down, but it does need to cool a bit.

  13. This was a wonderful treat this morning. Plus, it did help keep me full.

    About the hot liquid in the blender thing….I used my hand blender and it worked perfectly. It was also a breeze to clean up.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Erica – That’s great! 🙂

  14. Amanda Andrews says:

    My coconut oil is solid, is that what you’re using in yours? Or are you measuring it in liquid form?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amanda – Mine is solid too. But it melts pretty quickly in the warmer coffee.

  15. I really was hesitant as I’m addicted to creamer. I was pleasently surprised!!! What kind of sweetener do you recommend? I don’t like stevia & used 1 tsp of real maple syrup for 8oz of coffee.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mary – If pure maple syrup is what you prefer, that’s absolutely fine!

  16. Just this morning, as I poured my cooked oatmeal with nuts into my blender for breakfast, I thought – the nuts give such an amazing creaminess, how about putting coffee directly into this?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lisa – It’s good stuff!!

  17. I have recently made the switch to this method of coffee drinking and love it! 1 T. of organic coconut oil 1 T. of unsalted butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and honey. Yum! I am full until lunch. Just a word of caution, some stomachs have a hard time with the high fat content for the first couple days…make sure a restroom is nearby.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Erin – Really!! I didn’t know that about the fat. Thanks for the tip! It truly is fabulous stuff.

  18. Can I use a single serve blender or should it be a traditional blender?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rebecca – I use my single serve Ninja. Works great. But either way.

  19. I am concerned about the saturated fats that the coconut oil has. Those little devils are the bad ones.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jennifer – Actually, there is a lot of information out there now that seems to prove the opposite. But if you have doctor’s orders, then I would avoid this one.

  20. I am having a hard time with finding a clean vanilla extract, do you have a brand you prefer?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lindsay – I get the bourbon vanilla from Trader Joe’s. It’s definitely getting harder to find the real stuff. I believe Whole foods as a few as well.
