I’ve told you guys before that I get inspiration from the oddest places – the backs of cereal boxes, the depths of the freezer…and now Google Hangouts. When planning the South Africa trip rehearsal in Lancaster in January, one of the guys mentioned that if we get snowed in, we could just sit around the fire drinking hot custard and playing board games. Drinkable hot custard immediately snagged my attention. “I bet I can turn that into a Velvety drink!” I thought – and I was right! Betcha never guessed your casual remark would get you mentioned on my blog, eh, Vlad? 😛
“What are these Velvety drinks of which you speak?” you may be wondering right now. They’re basically my take on Bulletproof elements – healthy fats that will get your metabolism going. They’re velvety smooth because of the coconut oil and butter they contain, and they fit the THM: Deep S fuel category!
Some Velvety drinks you may want to try:
- The Yummy Eggnog Detox
- Velvety Autumn Sip
- Velvety Cappuccino
- Velvety Chai
- Velvety Hot Chocolate
- Velvety Peppermint Sip

- Heat the almond milk and water until the desired temperature is reached. (I heat them for 2 minutes in the microwave.)
- Meanwhile, add all the other ingredients to a blender. When the liquid is hot, add it to the blender as well and blend immediately. (Be careful when blending hot liquids, and vent the blender to relieve pressure as necessary.) Blend until smooth and creamy, then enjoy! I like to top mine with a little cinnamon.
**Use refined coconut oil if you don't desire a coconut flavor.
Feel free to add some maple extract and/or cinnamon!
Try carton, not canned, coconut milk for a nut-free version.
To make this dairy free, use collagen instead of whey protein and add additional coconut oil in place of the butter. This will take out some of the creaminess factor, so it may be a good idea to add some cinnamon and/or maple extract for an extra flavor kick.
