Fat-Burning Cappuccino

Coffee and dairy products create an acidic environment in the body. The body needs to be an alkaline state for weight loss to occur. Dandy Blend, a blend of dandelion and chicory root is very alkalizing. The medium chain triglycerides found in both palm and coconut oils help stimulate fat metabolism. Cinnamon helps to fight cravings by balancing blood sugar.

12 ounces hot water, just off the boil
1 heaping teaspoon Dandy Blend
1 tablespoon palm oil
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon plus some for sprinkling
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of cayenne (optional)

Place all ingredients into the wet container except for the cayenne. Turn on variable speed 1, increase to 10, then high. Blend 30 - 60 seconds until foamy. Pour into mug and sprinkle with cinnamon and cayenne.
