I have been reading of the benefits for blackstrap molasses and although I am not repulsed by the organic taste, I do not find it quite "enjoyable". I read about another user putting the syrup in his coffee and I wanted to report back this morning after having just finished my coffee that is was TRULY enjoyable! And I mean that I really could not taste the BSM in my coffee at ALL. I know sometimes on this site, especially with the ACV, the recipes that are often touted as very tasty are not so, but this one is actually very good. It really just tastes like coffee. SO!
I fill a very large (16 ounce, it's one of those Starbuck's ones) mugs 2/3 with coffee (I buy Celestial Seasonings Organic Caramel Mocha, although I'll be switching to plain Organic after this bag)
After filling 2/3 full I add:
1 tbs BSM, but tomorrow I will try with 1.5 tbs since it went unnoticed at 1 tbs
1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Scharffen Berger.... AWSOME)
And a full rounded teaspoon plus one half a rounded tsp of plain white sugar (yes, white sugar... don't yell... I suppose you could use honey or splenda or raw sugar, as long as it's fairly neutral and sweet)
And then I top it all off with Silk Vanilla Soymilk.
So in a nutshell:
2/3 mug of organic coffee
1 TBS BSM
1 TBS cocoa powder
1.5 ROUNDED tsp sugar of your choice
Fill to top with milk of choice
YUM! I can't wait to reap the benefits!!! I'm going to try upgrading to 1.5 tbs tomorrow!!
Oh, plus cocoa powder in hot water/milk I have recently read is going under scrutiny as possibly being more antioxidant-rich than GREEN TEA. WOO!! Add that cocoa powder and drink your health!!
