I’m drinking coffee again! I went years without drinking coffee (almost a decade – can you believe it?!), but that yummy goodness is now back in my life. I’m thinking it must be because of my new status: mom to a newborn 🙂

 

Now that the weather is warm and sunny and I’m severely sleep deprived, this supercharged iced coffee majorly hits the spot.

I call this supercharged iced coffee because it comes loaded with some pretty awesome health promoting benefits. Not only will it help you burn fat all day long (woohoo!), but it also gives a boost of energy and stamina and helps balance your moods and hormones (double woohoo!). It even has skin toning and clarifying properties.  

 

Having just gone through childbirth, I especially needed all of that, which was the very reason I created this supercharged iced coffee recipe in the first place. But even if you haven’t recently gone through childbirth, I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t welcome some extra support in the areas of fat loss, energy, hormones and anti-aging, am I right? This supercharged iced coffee is like a ladies BFF. Ladies, you’re welcome 🙂

And I have to say, this stuff really works for me! Even being very sleep deprived, I truly feel great and dare I say… energetic?! It’s true! My friends who recently had babies are struggling with hormone and mood issues, but I haven’t had any issues at all. And I lost all of my 50 pounds of pregnancy weight gain in 3 months without doing any hard workouts (although I am active and do try to go for a walk each day). Could it be because of the supercharged ingredients in this coffee? I think it’s certainly very possible! Here’s why….

 

Supercharged Iced Coffee Ingredient Benefits:

 

Collagen Protein

I’ve been singing the praises of collagen for years. Collagen is one of the few supplements I believe everyone should add to their diet. From more youthful looking skin to reducing inflammation and joint pain, collagen is a true nutritional powerhouse.  

 

It’s one supplement that I swear by and here’s just one reason why: I gained 50 pounds during pregnancy – that was almost half my pre-pregnancy body weight! Plus I’m in my late thirties and I gained what seemed like 10 bra sizes (really it was just 3). I was told by all my friends and family that I’d be covered in stretch marks because of my age and weight gain. But I didn’t get a single one!!!! Seriously, not a single stretch mark!!! That’s the power of collagen. It’s a miracle worker for skin, hair and nails. I thought I loved collagen back then, but after my pregnancy, I love it even more. I want to shout from the rooftops how great it is. You can read more details about why I love collagen so much and the benefits of collagen HERE.

I use THIS collagen powder. It mixes easily with any drink and is tasteless and odorless. You can find it HERE or on Amazon HERE.

 

MCT Oil

I add MCT oil to my supercharged coffee because it helps my body burn fat all day long! Many also call MCT oil “fuel for the brain.” It’s especially helpful for fast and lasting energy, focus, hormonal balance and a boosted metabolism.  There’s even evidence that it promotes weight and fat loss because it helps balance hormones, improves insulin sensitivity and raises metabolic function.

I use THIS MCT Oil.

 

Maca Powder

Maca has been highly regarded for centuries as a miracle plant food. It’s most well known and studied for helping balance hormones and mood. Maca has even been called “food of the gods” and for good reason. It contains 55 phyto-chemicals, including vitamins B1, B2, B12, and Vitamin C, zinc, amino acids, calcium and phosphorus – it’s a total powerhouse! Those chemicals play critical roles in hormonal health. Maca is also very beneficial to the thyroid gland, immune system, reproduction system, brain and skin.

 

Maca is considered an adaptogen which means it helps the body deal with toxins and physical and emotional stress. HERE is a great article on more health benefits of Maca.

I use THIS Maca Powder.

 

That’s some pretty awesome, stuff, right?! I think you’ll love both the taste and the benefits from my delicious supercharged iced coffee recipe. Enjoy!

  1. Hey Kelly!

    So happy that you are back on coffee…I know we had talked about how much you miss it! This is pretty much what I do with collagen and MCT, but I don’t use maca consistently. Thanks for the suggestion. And collagen and MCT oil are total game changers in my book. I didn’t just give birth (thankfully!) but I’m an extremely busy 50 year old and can’t believe how much energy I have to get through my days, even when I’m not getting sleep.

    So happy for you and everything going on in your life! And glad to be able to read your blog posts…totally missed them and you!

  2. Could you add a scoop of unflavored protein powder for added protein?
