Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.
Today's "Happy Cacao" Coffee Bombs were from Lady Bird Provisions, LLC (Austin, TX). The company offers a line of Coffee Bombs and collagen coffee creamers (other flavors include: Peppermint Mocha and Vanilla Cinnamon) to blend with hot coffee, milk or tea.
The resulting hot beverage had a rich buttery, brothy texture and mouthfeel and had pleasing mocha cinnamon notes.
The cacao tasted authentic, and the sweetness level was just about right, i.e. not too sweet (thank you). The judicious amount of maple sugar contributed a nice, naturally sweet accent flavor with the cinnamon.
Marketing these "bombs" just for coffee or tea, might be limiting the versatility of this tasty, low-carbohydrate (total carbs: 2 g. per bomb), rich buttery cacao add-in. I'm already planning to make a small hot shot with a small cup of hot water, with one or two cacao bombs (and very little coffee) to enjoy as a morning boost later this week. Mixing this "bomb" into oatmeal also would be tasty.
Note: each bomb does contain a hefty amount of saturated (coconut and butter) fat; but if you're an active person and eat healthy, I don't see that as an issue. I tend to eat much less later in the day if I start my morning with some healthy fat and protein.
Ingredients: Organic, unrefined coconut oil, grass-fed bovine collagen peptides and grass-fed butter, organic cacao, pure maple sugar, organic Ceylon cinnamon.
Allergen-related information: Contains tree nuts (coconut), milk (butter).
