Good afternoon & happy Friday friends! I’ve been eager to explain how I make my bulletproof coffee each morning because I’ve been loving it so much! Also, I’ve gotten so many questions about it so I figured I would write a blog post showing exactly what I do. It is so tasty and has given me an amazing amount of energy throughout the day. First, I would like to share a few benefits of bullet proof coffee. If your not familiar with the term, basically it’s coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil that then gets thrown into a blender creating a frothy/warm delightful drink!
- Increases energy by combining the effects of caffeine and high powered fats.
- Helps reduce cravings and aids in fast acting weight loss when combined with a bulletproof lifestyle. Although it is high in fats the idea is to use the fats as a source of energy (where your body becomes a fat burning machine). By adding this coffee to my mornings, I’ve seen that I’m not hungry again until lunch time and my bloat has gone down tremendously!
- High in healthy fat content means that its high in Omega 3 fatty acids and Omega 6 fatty acids. These healthy fats help fight depression, symptoms of asthma, attention-deficet/hyperactivity disorder.
- Helps keep your brain healthy and promotes cognitive function. Often times I suffer with mental fog and drinking bulletproof coffee each morning has improved my mental clarity (without the jitters).
So there you have it. These are just some of the benefits to drinking bulletproof coffee every morning or as an afternoon pick me up. Instead of reaching for a regular cup of joe that is rich and carbohydrates and sugar you can add a serious amount of beneficial fats like vitamin-rich butter and nutritional oils. I like to make my bulletproof coffee two ways. Both ways you will need some kind of blender (blending instead of stirring is how you will create delicious frothiness).
Ingredients: Grass-fed butter ( I use Kerry Gold), fresh brewed coffee, KETO Collagen Protein, cinnamon
Directions: Add brewed coffee to the blender, Tbs of Kerry Gold butter plus 1 scoop of Keto Collagen Protein. You can add some sweetener like stevia if you’d like. Then just blend! Sprinkle cinnamon on top and the results are delicious!
KETO Collagen has all the healthy essentials you need. It has collagen peptides + Coconut MCT’s +bone broth. You get the benefits of healthy skin, hair, and nails plus healthy fats (MCT’s). This powder is perfect to help take on the business of life! This has been my favorite way to make my bulletproof coffee because It takes less steps to throw together and has all the healthy essentials I want. This brand in paticular is my favorite.
Ingredients: Grass-fed butter ( I use Kerry Gold), fresh brewed coffee, coconut milk, coconut oil/or MCT oil, stevia sweetener
MCT oil is a medium-chain triglyceride saturated fatty acid, but in short is a more concentrated version of coconut oil. I like to see this as the star of bulletproof coffee, but you can use coconut oil if you don’t have MCT oil.
Directions: Add brewed coffee to the blender, Tbs of Kerry Gold butter, splash of coconut milk, 1 Tbs coconut oil/or MCT oil + stevia sweetener and blend!
There you have it folks two easy ways to make bulletproof coffee at home! Also, as promised, I said I would share how to order a bulletproof coffee at Starbucks or really wherever you like to order your favorite cup of Joe!
Here is what to ask the barista. At first you may feel weird to request this, but I’m sure it is not the first time baristas get weird requests. The last time I ordered this at Starbucks the barista knew exactly what I was talking about. So you’ll be surprised! Also, It only cost me like $3 instead of $6 so definitely better on your wallet!
Starbuck Bulletproof Coffee:
-2 Kerry Gold butters
-Splash of heavy whipping cream
-Ask them to blend it for you!
I hope you found this helpful friends! Let me know in the comments below if you are going to try this. Also, is there a way that you like to make yours? I know you could play around with spices and flavors so I’d love to know how you like to make your bulletproof coffee!
