Some things in life are difficult: nuclear engineering, driving a tractor, remembering your anniversary.

And some things in life are easy: leaving for vacation, opening birthday presents, incorporating BUBS Naturals MCT Oil Powder into your daily routine. This flavorless, one-and-done scoop of brain-boosting, gut-healing MCT oil powder can be mixed into any sauce, yogurt or oatmeal and you’d never know it’s there!

The same can be said for MCT powder and your beverages. You can mix your scoop into any tea, coffee, smoothie or shake and nothing will change - you’ll still experience all the health benefits, and never taste a difference.

While taking MCT powder can be as simple as stirring your triglycerides into a glass of water midafternoon to give you some fast-acting energy, sometimes it’s fun to spice things up a bit. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of exciting drink recipes to add a little something to your MCT powder regimen.

Drink Recipes for MCT Powder

Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte

Matcha green tea is chock-full of healthy antioxidants, making this tea latte supercharged with benefits (especially when made with your daily MCT powder ration). When shopping for matcha powder, be sure to go with the sugar-free variations so as to avoid unwanted additives. All you need for a tasty drink is to blend the matcha powder, MCT powder, milk and vanilla syrup (or honey) in a blender until smooth and then pour over ice. Sip on it throughout the morning to keep mid-morning snacking at bay, or enjoy in the afternoon for a refreshing boost to beat any post-lunch slump.

Hot Chocolate (Keto-friendly, sugar-free)

Who doesn’t love a little hot chocolate, topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon? We know we do, but we also know hot chocolate doesn’t have to be a guilty indulgence! In fact, this recipe is not only decadently smooth but also completely innocent. Made from sugar-free cocoa powder, almond milk, vanilla, and whipped cream for that silky-smooth texture (coconut milk substitution mentioned in the recipe), you’ll want to keep a batch of this on hand for those chilly evenings. And for that ever-important MCT powder addition, simply mix it in with the cocoa powder - you’ll never know it was there!

Blissful Five-Minute Tea Latte

This frothy tea latte offers a comforting drink for a rainy day or a slow morning and can be made with any tea and milk of your choosing. All you’ll have to do is steep the tea for about five minutes for a really concentrated tea, and steam your milk in a saucepan. You can stir in MCT powder with the tea, or sprinkle it on top of the frothed milk (just make sure you consume it all for the proper daily dose). With so many tea, milk and topping variations, you can whip up this drink again and again with a new twist, every time.

Fruit and Veggie Smoothies

We assume that you have a favorite routine smoothie with ingredients you keep perpetually stocked in your freezer. But for those days when you want a little something different, or want to try the benefits of a different fruit you’ve heard so much about, here’s a nice list of 50 smoothie variations which you can enhance with your daily packet of BUBS MCT Oil Powder. From ‘Cucumber-Kale’ to ‘Green Tea-Almond’ to ‘Pineapple-Coconut,’ we guarantee you’ll find a new smoothie flavor for every day, season, and mood.

Quick and Easy Peppermint Milkshake

This milkshake isn’t lying when it says “quick and easy.” The whole process takes about five minutes, calls for three ingredients (and additional garnishes if you want), and you only need a blender for a little Christmas in a cup -- although we won’t blame you if you make this minty treat year-round. Use all your favorite dairy-free milk and ice cream, blend it up with a scoop of MCT powder, and enjoy!

Whipped Coffee

This coffee trend took the internet by storm this summer (after everyone figured out that sourdough starters are really time consuming), so we of course had to see what the fuss was about. This whipped coffee is super simple, requiring hot water, instant coffee, sugar, milk, and ice, although substitutions can be made according to your specific dietary needs (substituting oat milk for whole milk, for example). Even though this recipe doesn’t call for MCT powder specifically, we suggest blending it in with the instant coffee in the first step to provide that jolt of clean, non-jittery energy. With a little caffeine, and a little MCT you’ll have enough energy to conquer the whole day without so much as a yawn.

Take It How You Like It

There’s no wrong way to take BUBS Naturals MCT Powder. We kept it flavorless for easy incorporation into any food or drink, and even created nifty packets for easy consumption on the go. So whether all you have time for is stirring it into your morning OJ on the way to the office, or you want to experiment with rejuvenating smoothies for a post-workout snack, your MCT powder regimen will fit right in. Get crazy with it, or keep it simple -- it’s up to you.
