  • 1 standard brew of your favorite Nespresso coffee (Original or Vertuo), a double espresso press or substitute with 5 oz. strongly brewed French Press coffee.
  • 2 Tbsp. MCT Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage (I like Silk Coconut-Almond blend)
  • 2 Squirts liquid Stevia sweetener
  • A dash of B's Pumpkin Spice Blend (recipe below)
    • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
      2 teaspoons ground ginger
      2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
      1 ½ teaspoons ground allspice (optional)
      1 ½ teaspoons ground cloves.
      Mix the spices together in a small bowl and take a little whiff. 
      Store the mixture in a clean small jar or spice container.


  1. Brew coffee.
  2. While brewing warm coconut milk and add MCT oil.  Whisk together until blended. If you have a milk warmer/steamer device, use this to heat and combine the milk and oil.
  3. Pour coffee into your favorite mug 3/4 full. Add warmed milk mixture to fill your cup.  
  4. Sprinkle B's Pumpkin Spice Blend on top to garnish. 
  5. Mix if you like or drink it in layers.
