Ghee can be enjoyed in all of the same ways you enjoy butter: on toast, in a stir-fry, when you bake, in your coffee…wait. Yes, you heard right. You can add ghee to your coffee. And it’s delicious.

So why would anyone think to add ghee to their morning cup of joe? Well for starters, it makes a beautifully rich, creamy and frothy latte without adding any milk or cream. So for those latte-lovers who have lactose or dairy sensitivities, this is the way to go.

We like to call it Coff-Ghee (think BulletProof Coffee). It’s less acidic than black coffee, because ghee’s naturally high in butyric acid which is excellent for gut health. And when consumed simultaneously with coffee, the caffeine actually binds to fat molecules of the ghee and are more slowly digested by the stomach - which means a sustained caffeine boost, and none of that miserable jolt-then-crash business.

So have we talked you into trying it yet? That’s what we like to hear!

Here’s the recipe:
