I am a coffee person. My husband likes to give me a hard time about it. We were on a road trip when we were dating and he offered to get my coffee for me and he said I looked at him in horror and said “no, I will get it myself.” He gave me such a hard time about not trusting him with my coffee.
These days coffee doesn’t have control over like it used to (thanks to my pink drink!) but I still like to drink it. I like experimenting with different ways to make it- most recently using the Chemex and a French press. The other day I read an article about bulletproof coffee. I have heard people talk about it before but hadn’t tried it. For some reason this article really caught my attention and made me want to give it a try. I thought, if I’m going to drink coffee might as well make my coffee work for me, right?
The article I read called for Brain Octane Oil instead of coconut oil. I had never heard of it!
Brain Octane increases energy and brain function. If that’s not enough, it helps your body create energy from fat instead of sugar, turning you into a fat-burning machine.
Bulletproof Coffee article and recipe:
• 2 ½ heaping tablespoons ground Bulletproof Coffee Beans
• 1 teaspoon – 2 tablespoons Brain Octane Oil
• 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or grass-fed ghee.
1 Make your coffee. Brew 1 cup (8-12 ounces) of coffee using filtered water with 2 ½ heaping tablespoons of freshly ground Bulletproof Coffee Beans. Use a French Press for ease of use and to preserve beneficial coffee oils that paper filters keep out.
2 Add Brain Octane Oil. Add 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons of Brain Octane Oil (start slow with this stuff – it’s powerful!)
3 Add grass-fed butter or ghee. Add 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter or grass-fed ghee. Make sure your butter is unsalted. Salty coffee is gross.
4 Blend. Mix it all in a blender for 20-30 seconds until it looks like a creamy latte. There will be a good amount of foam on top.
After 3 days, I’m still on the fence about it. I would love to hear if you’ve tried it and what you think. And please share your best at-home coffee recipes.
