Modified Unicorn Fuel for Gut Healing

IMG_8696When I first heard about Mary Shenouda “The Paleo Chef” recipe, Unicorn Fuel, I HAD to try it ASAP! After all, I had all of the ingredients already. It takes your coffee up another level. Currently, I just started an H. Pylori supplement protcol and the Whole 30 Diet. My naturopathic doctor wants me to limit my coffee to once a day, and encourages green tea as it is gut healing. So the other day I made this with coffee, and I was crawling on the walls. I only used one cup of coffee, with one cup of almond milk. Here is the original recipe:

2 cups coffee (who really drinks only 1 cup?)
1 tablespoons MCT oil (optional, and if it’s your first time only 1/2)
1 tablespoons grass fed butter
1 teaspoon powdered maca
1 teaspoon raw cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
pinch of cayenne

The taste is unique, and phenomenal! It’s a tad labor intensive, but worth it once in awhile. I am concerned that one cup of coffee gave me such jittery effects. After perusing a few YouTube videos on H Pylori and healing, I realize that it’s probably a much better idea if I give up the coffee for now. I can always come back to it later.

So my modified adrenal saving, no jitters Unicorn fuel is simply using 2 cups of almond milk for my liquid. I also need it sweet, so I add about 10 drops of vanilla stevia. Warm it up on the stove, and its like a hot drink. Now this is a lot of liquid, so you may as well make this a snack. So you need protein in it. You have two choices. A serving of beef protein powder like JJ VIrgin’s grassfed beef protein, or a serving of gut healing beef collagen powder. You can use this or this or whatever you like. So here is my modified recipe that gives you fat, energy, and protein!

2 cups non dairy milk
1 tablespoon MCT oil
1 tablespoon grassfed butter (Kerrygold is good, or ghee)
1 Teaspoon powdered maca
1 teaspoon raw cacao
1 serving grassfed beef protein powder or 1 serving collagen powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
pinch of cayenne
10 drops of Nunaturals vanilla alcohol free stevia, or your sweetener of choice
