Eat Your Coffee?

Eat your Coffee and Have Probiotics Too....
Add nutritious probiotics and supplements to
your coffee. Make it a quick mealWe have been drinking our coffee this way for about three years. 

Make sure the coffee is well-cooled before mixing in the added nutritional elements. Otherwise, you will kill off the probiotics and enzymes that make it an effective meal substitute. It has to be consumed cold and not re-heated.

  • Make your favorite coffee in advance.
  • Place in a larger, heat-resistant sealed container* and cool it in the freezer or refrigerator to at least room temperature. 
  • Add a generous portion of homemade kefired soy or coconut milk. Make it yourself here:  Make Probiotic Drinks. 
  • Add a scoop of good quality raw, green powder (Garden of Life Perfect Food Raw or NOW Spirulina Powder are good ones)  and a tablespoon of e3Live, from 
  • Add a scoop of plain or vanilla flavored whey protein concentrate** ( Jarrow Formulas a good one).  We have also tried and highly recommend Miracle Whey protein mix, offered through
  • Add scoop of organic, unsweetened, unprocessed cocoa. We have used  Garden of Life, Perfect Food Raw with raw chocolate (same as the green powder above, but also with raw chocolate cacao mixed in) for this and highly recommend it.
  • Sweeten.  Stevia is the preferred additive for this. (We use whatever we can get our hands on at the moment.)
  • Cover the container and shake, shake shake.
  • Keep stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.  Shake and stir well from the bottom before drinking.
  • Too tame, you say?  OK, then add a generous amount of raw, plain kombucha.  See where that takes you....

Alternatives: You can substitute your favorite tea (caffeinated or decaffeinated) for the coffee. If you don't have time to ferment your own kefir, use a store-bought kefir that is organic, plain and unflavored. 

GMO free is also important as GMO treated food could possibly affect the cultivation of good bacteria in your gastrointestinal system.  This we infer from listening to Dr. Don Huber, a microbial soil ecologist and retired professor from Purdue University. He  has 35 years experience.  Full interview: The Hidden Epidemic Destroying Your Gut Flora
