☕️ What is Bulletproof Coffee? – How To Make It.
What is bulletproof coffee?
Bulletproof coffee quite simply is coffee with butter and MCT oil. Take a few sips of this hot coffee emulsion and you will be ready to take on the day. It’s frothy and delicious!
Dave Asprey from Bulletproof nutrition coined the term Bulletproof coffee. Since it’s inception there are several versions of the famous recipe but most refer to them as bulletproof coffee.
How do you make it? – the original recipe.
1 cup of hot coffee
2 TBS unsalted organic or grass-fed butter
1 TBS MCT oil or coconut oil
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy.
Why drink bulletproof coffee instead of eating breakfast.
Starting your day with a carb-heavy breakfast of cereal, oatmeal, or toast spikes your blood sugar. You’ll get a short lasting burst of energy, but after a few hours your blood sugar will drop, and you’ll be hungry, tired, and unfocused.
The fat in bulletproof coffee provides satiety and helps curb cravings. The amount of fat can be adjusted to your liking. Start off with a small amount, let’s say a teaspoon, of MCT oil and work your way up to a full tablespoon if you feel good doing so. Some people experience stomach problems if adding too much oil at once.
The fat together with the caffeine from the coffee will give you a boost of energy to start your day. If you are sensitive to caffeine, go ahead and try it with organic decaf. It won’t give you quite the same effect but you will still have a great-tasting and filling drink.
You don’t have to like coffee to go bulletproof
You don’t have to use coffee to get the boundless energy and focus of butter and MCT oil. Tea is a great alternative to coffee that delivers all of the benefits of a buttered beverage.
Make this recipe your own by adding your favorite flavors to it. Add some unsweetened cocoa powder and you’ll have a bulletproof mocha. Or why not try some cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. If you feel like adding sweetness to your coffee, add a little stevia or erythritol. Don’t want to go the trouble of blending your own brew? Our Keto Kofi by Bulafit may be just what you need.
