Bulletproof Coffee

When I hear the term “bulletproof”, I think of a vest or special type of glass. Not coffee. A few weeks ago, we mentioned buttered coffee. Bulletproof coffee takes it a step further. It seems to be popular with those into the Paleo diet or into CrossFit. The recipe is eight ounces of hot drip coffee, one tablespoon of organic (grass-fed) unsalted butter, and one tablespoon of coconut oil with MCT (medium chain triglycerides). Regular butter doesn’t have the right composition for the intended effect and won’t blend as well. Froth together in a blender until smooth. You can add your sugar, sugar substitute or other flavors if you with.

This is supposed to give you more energy longer and help with fat-burning. Is this just a passing fad? Only time will tell.

Buttered toast. Buttered croissants. Buttered coffee?

Yes. People are putting butter in their coffee.

The practice started in Tibet with buttered tea. They brew the tea, then float yak butter and Himalayan salt on top. Dave Asprey brought the concept to the U.S. but used coffee instead of tea. He uses grass-fed unsalted butter. He has developed Bulletproof Coffee.

If you want to try butter coffee at home without purchasing Bulletproof coffee, put 1 cup brewed coffee in a blender with 1 tsp organic grass-fed unsalted butter and 1 Tbsp coconut oil and mix until it froths. Enjoy.
