NutriCafe Organic Immune Support coffee can't be beat. Not only is it organic, it is also fair trade and immune supporting! This Vienna Roast is made from Arabica beans, containing about half the caffeine of normal coffee, although Handsome hasn't noticed a difference in energy levels since he made the switch! He also can't taste the immune support - much of which comes from mushrooms, which he doesn't like. There is no mushroom taste, yet he is reaping the benefits of them, simply by drinking his morning coffee.
I had never actually tried Coconut Milk Powder before trying EnerHealth's version. There were some things I learned along the way. One is that this does not mix well into cold water. It does much better with warm or hot liquid. Another is that this is great in a smoothie. Coconut Milk Powder contains healthy fats, omega - 3's, and acids that are known for having an anti-microbial effect on the body. It is also gluten free, making it safe and healthy for those with gluten issues.
The next thing we tried was the Cocoa MoJo. Like the coffee, it is organic, fair trade, and immune supporting! Not surprisingly, this was my kids favorite. It makes a great hot cocoa, and when blended with some of EnerHealth's Coconut Milk Powder, it tastes like a chocolate coconut macaroon. Besides the immune enhancing properties, I really like that this has a low glycemic index because it is made with organic coconut palm sugar. My Mother-in-Law is diabetic and has been trying to eat better these last few years. That means less sweets, which can be really hard. The Cocoa MoJo is a great product for someone who suffers with diabetes, or for anyone who is trying to watch their sugar intake.
I also got to try the Coconut Palm Sugar, which is what the Cocoa MoJo is made with. Basically, it is used the same as normal sugar - while not quite as sweet as cane sugar, it does satisfy the sweetness craving. It tastes a bit like maple syrup, and who doesn't like that?! The greatest benefit of this sugar is that it is lower on the glycemic index, making it so much better for those needing to watch their sugar intake.
