Dandy Morning Coffee

As many of you know, I’ve really been trying hard to incorporate some of the Trim Healthy Mama ideas into my everyday diet. I have to have really like to have my morning coffee and I had switched over to the Dandy Blend before we started on these other diet changes so I wanted to try to make my creamer addiction a little bit healthier.

You don’t have to add the ‘extra’ ingredients but they help to make this a vitamin-packed way to start your day. The Trim Healthy Mama books have a ton of ideas and flavor variations that you could try.

Dandy Morning Coffee


  • Dandy Blend, to taste
  • hot water (see directions)
  • 1-2 t. collagen, optional
  • 1-2 t. protein powder, optional
  • 1/8 t. sunflower lecithin, optional
  • half and half, milk, or cream, to taste
  • 1 t. MCT oil, optional
  • favorite extract or flavoring, to taste (I normally use vanilla but I just bought some caramel to try out.)
  • sweetener, to taste (I have been using Stevia in place of the sugar)


I use about 2 t. of Dandy blend and 8-10 ounces of hot water.

I add all of my powdered ingredients into the hot water and stir vigorously. (I just bought an immersion blender to use for this as I want to try to make it a little creamier but it has been okay without it.)

Then I add all of the liquid ingredients and sweeten/flavor to taste. Enjoy!
