So don’t get me wrong, I love my local coffee shop. But there are times when the last thing you want to do is leave home for a latte…

Here’s the answer! Not only does this Paleo coffee drink taste amazing, it’s full of protein to help you stay energized and burn fat. Add health-boosting coconut milk to the mix, and you’ve got the recipe for the perfect latte.

Thirsty for more healthy hot drinks? You’ve gotta try a mug of Orange Hot Chocolate or this amazing Macaroon Mocha.
