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. 


Supercharged Iced Coffee recipe for Fat burning and hormone balance


I call this supercharged iced coffee because it comes loaded with some pretty awesome health promoting benefits:

  • helps your body burn fat all day long (woohoo!)
  • gives a boost of energy and stamina
  • helps balance your moods and hormones (double woohoo!)
  • there’s 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 🙂


Supercharged Iced Coffee recipe for Fat burning and hormone balance


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! Most of my friends who recently had babies are struggling with hormone and mood issues, but thankfully 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 and helping digestion, 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 of 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.



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. It’s truly great stuff….my husband even asks for it each morning because of the difference he’s noticed. 


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. Can you see why I love it so much?


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 love and 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!

    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!

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

    I live in SA … and have never heard about MCT or Maca powder. Could these two ingredients be sold under other names perhaps? Please let me know.

    Could other super food greens be substituted for Maca?

    • Kelly from Primally Inspired

      Yes, that’s a great idea, Kathleen.

        MCT is a form of coconut oil. I have used coconut oil in it’s solid form in my hot coffee under the recommendation of my chiropractor to get long lasting healthy fat into my diet. It starts out solid in a jar and when it gets in the warm coffee it melts into an oil consistency just like the MCT oil looks. I don’t know if the nutritional benefits are exactly the same but I just wanted to let you know my experience.
        As far as maca powder I don’t know if it has another name. You could try looking for maca root powder.
        I found all the ingredients easily on Amazon by clicking the links in the recipe.

    Today I found your article it was great. It was very helpful for pregnant women.
    I did not know about collagen and MCT benefits after reading your blog I know about it.
    Thanks Kelly for your valuable information.

    I am curious about the Silk product…. is it organic? Non GMO?

    • Kelly from Primally Inspired

      Hi Tracey! All Silk products are Non GMO verified, but the newest Silk almond milk on the market is also organic and free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and carrageenan! That version is currently only available at Costco, Sam’s Club and BJ’s now, but will hopefully be offered in regular grocery stores soon!

        I am surprised at your use of Silk products as the ingredients use “Natural Flavor” which could mean an array of things which are not good for you.

        • Kelly from Primally Inspired

          Hi Patience, I totally don’t stress over little things like that anymore! For years I stressed about food and actually developed anxiety over eating everything “perfectly” 100% organic, etc….so much so that I wouldn’t eat unless it was “perfect.” I’m so relieved to not be like that anymore. Of course I still choose healthy foods the majority of the time, but I refuse to stress over food. I’m so much happier and healthier once I dropped the food perfectionism and anxiety and decided to have a grateful heart for any food that gets put in front of me 🙂

    HI Kelly,

    Thank you for sharing your secret with us 😉

    Is there a particular time of day that you drink it and how often do you drink it?

    Thank you!!

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks so much for sharing all your great recipes! I had a question for this particular recipe, I don’t drink coffee so could you suggest something else in place of the coffee? Thanks again for sharing this! I look forward to trying and hoping to lose some “baby weight” 🙂


    • Kelly from Primally Inspired

      Hi Claire! Yes, lately, I’ve been switching back and forth between using coffee and matcha green tea for this recipe. I love matcha so much and the benefits of it are awesome! If you are new to matcha, you can find it pretty much anywhere these days…. just be sure to stir it really well – I use a little hand held immersion blender because it’s hard to get it to mix well. This is the matcha I use: http://amzn.to/2u7Thf1 I’ve tried a lot of matcha over the years from very expensive to cheap and this the best quality and taste for the price that I’ve tried! I use a heaping teaspoon of matcha for this recipe. Hope that helps!

    Hi Kelly,
    It’s so nice to have you back! I’m glad you’re doing so well and are enjoying being a mom. I’m looking forward to trying this recipe. Just curious about the collagen; I use the same brand but mine comes in a green plastic jar. What’s the difference between this and the peptides you use?

    • Kelly from Primally Inspired

      Hi Amy!

      The green lid version is gelatin. Gelatin has all the same benefits as collagen, but the difference is in the processing – gelatin gels when cooled and collagen is processed (the amino acids are broken down) so that it doesn’t gel. Your green lid gelatin isn’t a problem for hot drinks if you drink the drink before it cools, but it’s a problem for cold drinks because it will turn to a jello consistency 🙂 Jello coffee anyone?! <3 <3

    This sounds delicious as well as healthy! Unfortunately since menopause caffeine has really been bothering me. I used to be able to drink a cup of green tea then go to bed and fall asleep right away. I have a Chinese friend who gave me some beautiful green tea she brought back from the mountains in China. I try to have one cup right after I get up, but that still disturbs my sleep that night. So frustrating. I already use the Vital Proteins in smoothies, so maybe I’ll try adding the MCT oil and Maca to that. Thank you for the ideas! Do you think the sauna was helpful in loosing the weight too? Would love to see some photos of your sweet one!

    • Kelly from Primally Inspired

      Hi Gay! Nice to hear from you!

      The sauna could very well have a part in me losing the weight, too! Come to think of it, it probably was also a part of me not getting stretch marks since it helps with collagen production. Even if nothing else, it definitely is my 30 minutes of peace and sanity and these days I really need that haha 🙂

      I will post some pics of Sam soon – he is so cute!!!

    Hi, Kelly,

    Just wanted to say Congratulations! I’m sure you’re being kept busy.

    Before losing my wonderful husband several months ago, I used to make him the Bullet Proof Coffee, which he really enjoyed.

    I gave up coffee a few yrs. ago due to adrenal / thyroid problems. I rarely eat out, but once in awhile when I’m out with friends for breakfast, I will have a cup of coffee, which doesn’t seem to bother me, although I know it’s not good for me and especially since it’s not organic.

    Collagen is SO beneficial and I use it daily, along with coconut oils, and other healthful foods. I enjoy the compliments I get about my skin.

    I’ve been staying off of coffee as well as some others who have commented. I switched to Teccino dandelion coffee. It’s gluten free and has no caffeine. It also comes in different flavors. It tastes very similar to coffee. Tastes great!

    Hey Kelly, I need a couple of things from this list. Do I need a code for you to get credit if I order from your site. I know I will enjoy this drink. One of my uncles always drank Iced coffee, before that became a thing. I think of him every time I have an iced coffee drink.

    Hi Kelly, Congratulations on your new bundle of “joy”! Can you post a link for the Gelatin that you use? That way you get credit!

    Hi Kelly, is there a specific reason to add ice or could we drink it hot ?

  16. Avatar

    Hi Kelly, Glad to hear of the new addition to the family! Congratulations! Welcome to the Mommy Life! I’m excited to try these ingredients and see some wonderful results. I have been having issues with thyroid and per-menapause. I have been taking thyax and tri-40 which has been working. But unfortunately my hair has thinned and hoping that this might help balance my hormones. I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the info.

    Hi kelly, i love iced coffee and matcha but even small amounts make me crash really bad and leave me needing more caffiene……would this recipe be any different?

    How do you think this would be adding protein in to make it a breakfast shake?

    It’s a year after I read this for the first time, and I wish I had tried it then when my baby was only 1 month old! But here I am ready to rock this coffee drink. I am still nursing my baby, so wanted to check, but assume this is fine for nursing mamas. And I really love mocha flavored coffee, so would you be able to glance at these ingredients and tell me if this is a good powder to use? Thanks, Kelly! https://www.amazon.com/Perfect-Keto-Protein-Powder-Grass-Fed/dp/B072KFZ9TQ/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1525405685&sr=1-14-spons&keywords=vital+proteins+collagen&th=1&linkCode=ll1&tag=primainspi-20&linkId=bf7e900739598116b68cfa43095c1444
