Olive Oil and Coffee

Oil and water have never mixed well, but this fat bomb may leave you feeling less jittery than plain coffee.

Adding any fat, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Cream may help delay caffeine absorption.

When substituted for a saturated fat, olive oil is a heart health alternative. Olive oil is a monounsaturated fat that may help lower bad, LDL, cholesterol. Olive oil is also known to be an antioxidant and have anti-inflammatory properties.

Where did this come from? Starbucks has added an new drink to their menu, Oleato lattes. This latte is a shaken expresso made with oat milk, olive oil, and hazelnut.

These are not currently available in America. Coffee trends will inevitable be “fluid” but this trend comes from a long standing Italian tradition.
