Coconut “creamer” tea

teaIn recent years, we have discovered the benefits of coconut oil and try to add it in our diet whenever possible.  We use it as a substitute for butter in many dishes.  Oatmeal topped with coconut oil instead of butter gives it a yummy tropical taste (just add some dried fruit like mango or pineapple..yum!).  Here is an unusual way to add in some coconut oil.  I was skeptical when I first saw a similar recipe, but now I am hooked!
