You’ve probably heard of the new coffee phenomena, Bulletproof Coffee. Today, I’m sharing the quick an easy method to make this coffee at home, as well as some of the benefits I’ve personally experienced from it!
As an avid coffee drinker, I rarely tend to like trends in coffee. Leave my black coffee sprinkled with a touch of raw sugar alone, and we’ll get along just fine. No milk or cream for me, thank you very much. No, please don’t brew my coffee with a hint of nutmeg, thanks. But when the trend of “bulletproof coffee” started popping up on my newsfeed, I was intrigued with the promises of mental clarity and focus.
What is “bulletproof” coffee? Adapted to every day life, it’s hot black coffee blended with raw coconut oil and organic butter. Originally (and by trademark) it is a specific “upgraded” coffee and brain octane oil, a version of MCT (Medium-chain triglyceride) oil. Like coconut oil, but it “works directly in cells to give you an extra boost to maximize your performance” – but know even knows what that means. That’s why I stuck with coconut oil. Also, there is so much hype around this but I’m sharing WHAT WORKS FOR ME and why I love it.
This method is incredibly easy – just brew some coffee and place one cup of it in a blender. Add a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of coconut oil and blend until frothy! The results are a smooth cup of coffee that doesn’t ben need any sweetener or dairy product, as it resembles a light cappuccino. I’ve consumed this type of coffee for the past three months, on and off, and the benefits I saw where:
- Extended energy
- Mental focus and clarity
Normally, I’ll drink this coffee in the mornings but if I have a lot of work to get through, I’ll make one as an afternoon treat. Fair warning, I have sipped this at around 4pm and wasn’t sleepy until around 1am (I’m typically in bed by 10pm at the latest, so this was a stretch for me!)
Enjoy your bulletproof coffee!
