When I’m eating out, I use whatever creamer is offered. That’s only 1-2 times per week on average. But when I’m at home, which is most of the time, I choose coconut milk creamers for my coffee. Here are the reasons why.
Coconut Milk is nutritious.
It’s rich in essential vitamins and minerals including potassium, magnesium, and calcium. It’s also rich in electrolytes which can improve stamina and reduce fatigue.
Coconuts improve the immune system.
They contain lauric acid which boosts the immune system, reduces the risk of infections, and has anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties.
Coconut Milk does not increase IGF-1 in humans.
Meat and dairy product are known to increase Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1) in humans. Although IGF-1 is much needed in a growing and developing child, as we age there are concerns that it may stimulate the growth of cancer cells and promote degenerative diseases.
Coconut milk can be used with cereal, in smoothies, in soups, and even in casseroles as a milk substitute. I also use coconut yogurt in my smoothie. The actual coconut milk does not contain as much fat as the coconut creamers on the market specifically made for coffee. Of course, moderation is always key since, like any milk or cream product, the fat content and calories can be high. It’s also not recommended for anyone who has allergies to coconuts.
What do you put in your coffee? I love So Delicious Organic Coconut Milk, Creamer, and Yogurt.
