I didn’t set out to write a post about “bulletproof coffee”. But then I became obsessed with it.
But what is it, you ask? It’s amazing. It’s delicious. It’s a love affair for your taste buds.
I have been a coffee affectionado for a long time. I usually take my coffee with no sugar but enough cream or milk to turn it a lovely shade of ivory. I kept hearing about the health benefits of putting butter or coconut oil in your morning brew, but I tried it a few times and couldn’t get over the oil floating at the top. Ew. Then I stumbled across this recipe for bulletproof coffee and decided to give it a whirl. Literally. You whirl it up in the blender and let me tell you that makes all the difference in the world. It is the creamiest, most wonderful cup of coffee I have ever had. Better than anything I have ever ordered at a coffee shop (and believe me I have been to plenty).
If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself. My version of “bulletproof coffee” goes something like this.
1 TBSP coconut oil (high quality organic is best. For a good source, click here)
1 TBSP butter (preferably grass-fed)
1 splash of vanilla
2 TBSP cream or milk (I use raw, grass fed)
1 cup of coffee (always buy the best quality, organic coffee you can find)
Blend in your blender until foamy and then pour and enjoy. It’s that easy.
When I first offered it to my husband he was rather suspicious, but after tasting it, he was won over too. Please try it and then come back and tell me how you like it!
