You may have heard of bulletproof coffee, which is gaining massive popularity among foodies everywhere. It is an aspect of the bulletproof diet, a book and diet plan designed by a man named Dave Asprey, that focuses on lots of good fat, moderate protein, and low carbohydrates.
Healthy fats are making a huge comeback, after decades of “low-fat” being considered healthy, nutritionists have changed their tune on saturated fats, which they now say make up an important part of a healthy diet.
And bulletproof coffee is a great way to make sure you’re getting healthy fats, and make your morning coffee smooth and delicious without unhealthy creamers.
It’s very simple to make, and you’re sure to get hooked!
The purist version requires a special kind of coffee, and a special kind of oil called MCT oil, but any coconut oil will do, as they count as MCT oil. Organic coffee is always much better for you than non-organic, since conventional coffee crops are usually heavily sprayed with pesticides. Organic coconut oil is preferable as well. And, you will definitely want to use butter from grass fed cows. Pasteurized dairy is a much healthier source of fat, as grass is what cows are meant to eat. It also ensures they are much healthier, meaning higher-quality butter.
And now, without further ado, here’s the recipe:
- Organic coffee of choice
- Grass-fed butter
- Coconut oil or other MCT oil
- Brew your coffee as you normally would.
- When you have a fresh cup of coffee, when it is still very hot, add 1/2 tbs each of coconut oil and butter.
- Put the coffee with oil and butter in your blender, and blend on high for a few minutes, until it is nicely frothy.
- Pour back into your mug, and enjoy!
Now, keep in mind, this will have about 400 calories in a single cup, which is a lot, so if you’re counting calories, make sure to keep track of that. I usually find that with a few hard boiled eggs, this makes a very satisfying breakfast that gives me energy throughout the day!
