My fellow parents, school has begun and I am getting into the swing of early mornings, hearty breakfasts, making lunches and rushing out the door! To succeed at my daily routine and get the kids to school on time (most of the time), I need a little help. So, I jumped on the coffee trend bandwagon. Heard of bulletproof coffee? Bulletproof coffee was created by a guy named, David Asprey who traveled to Tibet and tried their yak buttered tea drinks. He had a revelation and came up with this recipe of grass-fed butter (very important), mct oil and coffee. This super octane recipe is suppose to sustain your energy and zing, promote weight loss (me likey very much) and give a brain boost.
I’m not sure if these claims are real but I can say, it gives me way more energy than plain coffee and i feel satiated in the morning. It also taste rich and creamy! Seriously, it’s good. The key is to blend it in a blender. Don’t just put a dollop of butter and stir it in your coffee. It will not be the same. You need to take that extra step and blend that coffee into a frothy energy boosting fuel! I use coconut oil instead of MCT because, hey, I can’t go out and buy everything that’s trendy. Plus, coconut oil is where mct is derived from. As my dear friend, Dori, who has been drinking bulletproof coffee for over a year told me that you want to avoid sugar as you don’t want any kind of carbs with the coffee. She said it took awhile, but she got used to not having sweet coffee. I am not that person. I like my coffee sweet, so my recipe has a little stevia in it. If you can handle it, don’t sweeten it. If you need it sweet, I say a little stevia can’t hurt…maybe high calcium blackstrap molasses or grade B maple syrup…Ok so I like to cheat…I still get a buzz!
Below is my ultimate cup of super coffee.
