Our friend Ksenia from Breakfast Criminals has graced us with her superfood presence! Today, she is sharing some breakfast secrets and tips for building a perfect savory brunch meal (yes, brunch any day of the week!) to start each morning ready to conquer the day!
Ksenia explains how she used to be the kind of person who goes out every morning to pick up her coffee. Not these days! Ever since she got her K575 Keurig® brewer, she’s been brewing her perfect cup of coffee with just a touch of a button.
Her unique twist? To then blend that coffee she just brewed with some spices like cinnamon, coconut oil, and any of her favorite superfoods to really get her going first thing in the morning!
Ksenia’s coffee choice of the moment: The Original Donut Shop® Coffee K-Cup® Pods and the recyclable (YAY!) Green Mountain Coffee® Breakfast Blend Coffee K-Cup® Pods (made using top 10% coffee beans in the world).
And now, be prepared to be extra excited – Ksenia lets us know it’s okay to start your morning with chocolate! Yes, chocolate.
Her recent superfood obsession is adding raw cacao to her superfood coffee concoction. Her newest recipe, Mayan Mocha Superfood Coffee has even been called “the most delicious drink in their life” by those who’ve tried it. Blending creamy cashew mylk and a spicy cayenne kick really does the trick 🙂
