So now I’m on a roll with ideas to blog about. Most people ask me for recipes that I’m posting on social media, so I thought that I would curate a lovely collection on my blog site. Going keto is not an easy task. But for many of us, we have been blessed with insight and creativity to take our everyday foods to to next level by making them “ketofied.” I’m sure this word will soon be in Webster’s or wherever people are searching for meaning in the English language. Bastardized or not, I love using words like this because it shows us in print form exactly what it means.
Keto Creamer has been a staple in my home since we first released our whole nature-based Keto line. I love the versatility for using it with my fresh brewed coffee to the savory dinners and even keto desserts. Today, I recreated one of my favorite coffee shop favorites - cappuccino! Super yummy and filled with healthy fats like grass-fed butter and medium chain triglycerides to keep my body burning fat for fuel. Plus some added natural collagen to help build strong hair and nails - keeping me on point with my salon appointments for sure!

On with the recipe...
Keto Cappuccino - achievewithaimee.com
2 shots of hot espresso
4-6 oz hot water (less liquid for creamier consistency)
1 scoop Keto Creamer
Make your espresso to your desired boldness and strength and add to the bottom of your favorite mug. Add 1 scoop of Keto Creamer to your hot water and whip with a frothing wand (I get mine from Amazon or Target for $6). Pour whipped creamer over espresso and enjoy!
• Substitute unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk instead of hot water as a base of extra healthy fat for the Keto Creamer.
• Add your favorite natural sugar-free sweetener to the espresso. I prefer Monk Fruit, Stevia or erythritol.
• Top with a zero sugar whipped cream for added healthy fat! Super ketofied!
Yes, it’s been awhile since I posted a blog update. A list of excuses run through my mind - I’m working at the hospital a lot, my kids are transitioning to the end of the school year, my business is booming and keeping me busy, I’m doing more live video posts, I’m working out more, etcetera, etcetera. Phoney baloney nincompoop kinda fairy dust....
Today compelled me to reach back to this platform that I ignored for way too long - more than two months! ¡Qué horible! So what gave me that push to write again? Of course, a yummy recipe! How could I resist?
Really, I’m preparing some thank-you gifts for my daughter’s teachers for the end of the school year. The transition to warmer weather inspired these gifts, so I wanted to pull together a beautiful insert with their healthy goodies and sinful treats (yes, no need for balance, just blend). So I whipped up this creamy afternoon keto snack using some of the ingredients I added to each of their gift bags. Each ingredient already on hand in Kusina Adamos.
My goal is not necessarily to balance, but rather to blend.
My simply yummy and healthful recipe includes ingredients that I would use every day from my local grocery store, some ordered through my monthly discounted autoship from my health and wellness company.

I used Greens Blend Berry which has matcha green tea blended with 52 alkalizing herbs and superfoods for a gentle detox to rebalance my ph every day. The Keto Creamer has MCT oil and grass-fed butter, the healthy fat I need to keep me in ketosis to burn fat all day long and improve my focus. Plus, I must mention this buttery creamer has added collagen to keep my hair, skin and nails youthful. The unsweetened coconut beverage helps me keep the sugars at bay unlike those found in dairy products. Believe me, I get plenty of dairy from all the cheese and cream I add to my plate. My goal is not necessarily to balance, but rather to blend.
