Coconut Oil in coffee, avoid the oil slick

I add CO to my hot beverages and I don't mind the oil slick on top but I know some do.

Here's a way to avoid the slick: add your CO and cream if you use it (I use coconut milk now). Make sure there's an inch or more between the liquid level and the rim of the cup. Use a little hand held frothing wand (I got mine for $5 from Ikea) and froth your coffee by insertioning the wand deep into the cup then slowly lift the frother toward the surface. This gives you a light foam like a latte, not an oily puddle. It tastes better, too, IMHO.

Thanks for a great idea!
I want to have the CO but I do have trouble getting it down.
I will give this a try, starting off with a small amount!

Thanks for this great hint! I'm one who hates the oil slick. I use half & half instead of heavy cream because of that, although I use plenty of whipping cream in my cooking and use coconut oil in cooking some too. I'll try frothing and see how I enjoy it. Do love a nice latte.

I don't mind the oil slick either, but since I've switched to "paleo cream" (coconut milk and an egg) instead of heavy cream, it's really hard to get this cream substitute to mix into my coffee, hence the frother.
