Earlier this year my husband and I tried bulletproof coffee for the first time. My main reason was to try and kick my french vanilla coffee creamer addiction and Luke’s reasoning was out of pure curiosity. To our surprise, we both loved it!
There are lots of different recipes for bulletproof coffees and ours has a few extras that make it just a tiny bit sweeter, and more latte like!
Why bulletproof coffee?
You’re probably wondering why were putting all these crazy things in our coffee. There’s a number reasons actually! And the biggest reason is energy. Not only are you benefiting from the caffeine in the coffee but you’re also getting an energy burst from the MCT oil, which is the fastest absorbed oil you can get your hands on, which makes it a perfect addition to coffee. Reason number two? This coffee is made to make you feel fuller longer. You’re energized and ready to take on the day!
What are the ingredients?
In it’s purest form bullet proof coffee is a combination of butter, coconut oil OR MCT oil in coffee. In recent years it’s basically any kind of coffee with lots of fat in it through a variety of sources like heavy cream, ghee, coconut milk etc. You’ll see my recipe has added a few things.
Begin with a cup of your favorite coffee and then add in these nutritional bonuses:
1 tbsp MCT Oil
2 tbsp Butter (I like Madagascar Vanilla Bean Ghee)
12 oz Coffee
1/2 pack of Moondust from Moonjuice
1/2 pack vital proteins (I like Collagen Peptides)
- Splash of Almond Milk
Then blend in a blender for a frothy delicious cup of coffee!
