Coconut Milk Latte

Coffee Addiction

To me, coffee is one of the sweet pleasures in life that can easily be taken for granted. As I ventured through my health journey one of my bizarre symptoms was increased reactions to foods I used to eat on a no-problem-regular-basis. Crazy burpy gas reaction to butter, thick mucousy throat from sugary foods, and fullness in ears and intensified stomachaches from coffee. I was already on such a restricted diet that coffee was one of the foods I just didn’t want to give up. Nope. Wasn’t gonna do it!

There’s something so alienating about being on a restricted diet that waking up to a creamy, frothy, sweet coffee drink is something I fought so hard to keep in my daily routine. I don’t even think it was the caffeine I needed to survive the day but just the thought my stubborn self wanted to hold on to. To much avail and after continually feeling funky after each coffee trial I succumbed to my coffee addiction and stopped drinking it. It was a huge mental block I had to get over. I tried tea, black tea with honey and rice milk and then starting making my own coconut milk…it just wasn’t the same.

Finally, it dawned on me that maybe in fact it was the caffeine that my body developed a sensitivity to and thought to try decaf. So I did, and I think it’s my new thing! Below is my version of a non-dairy Latte. Something about my mornings are a little sweeter now- hope you enjoy too!
