This is a favorite – go – to- breakfast tea I enjoy on very busy mornings on the run. Such lovely flavors, they just go so well together, cinnamon, caramel and a little sweetness.
I do make this periodically, although THM doesn’t recommend always drinking your meals, this is a wonderful way to have some superfoods with me to take when I have a very busy morning. It is also super delicious! So a double win!
This fabulous creation is dairy free and nut free! On Trim Healthy Mama this is an S breakfast. To make it more substantial you could definitely add bacon to the side if you have time!
The ingredients are simple, this throws together quickly – I will share what I do below!
*THM or your favorite oolong tea
*1/2 dropper Liquid Stevia
*1/4 tsp Caramel Extract
*1 Tablespoon Laird Superfood non dairy creamer
*1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
*1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
*1 scoop collagen
Helpful, but a blender will also work, Immersion blender is my favorite way to whip up my drinks.
This really is so simple….get your kettle warming up! Using a very large mug, place sweetener to taste in the bottom of the mug, I use about a 1/2 a dropper of stevia, I like it sweet. Put in your oolong tea bag, and pour hot water over to steep.
Oolong should steep a couple of minutes. While steeping, I add in to the tea the 1/4 tsp of caramel extract.
Into a large mason jar I put in my coconut oil, superfood creamer, cinnamon and collagen.
When tea is done brewing, I plug in the immersion blender…get ready! Remove the tea bag, please don’t set it on the stove like my husband likes to do…I appreciate his help, but I don’t love the tea bag puddle lol. 😛 Pour the tea right into your mason jar filled with the fabulous ingredients! Put your immersion blender in and let her rip!!
Blend until the ingredients are mixed a little lovely froth is on top. It is probably 30 seconds or so. 🙂

My dr said no collagen for me. It was causing pain. Other ideas for a protein for this rheumatoid arthritis sufferer that won’t hurt the joints?
Hi Lisa – I’m sorry that it bothers your RA 🙁
There are a lot of on plan protein powders that would work. If you can have dairy (which with RA you may avoid) whey would work of course, if you are avoiding that you can also use brown rice protein powder, I use this one found through my affiliate link here: https://amzn.to/2OIjSW0
You can also use pea protein, but I find the flavor to be stronger, but it can work, some ladies like garden of life protein powder or orgain which is a little higher in carbs, but can work if you are mindful of any other added carbs. 🙂
I am guessing no dairy either….I wonder if fish collagen might be ok? If not what about pea protein or my go to is nutribiotics brown rice protein powder!
