Sis and I are both fans of Bulletproof coffee and tea, and the concept of creator, Dave Asprey's book and diet. (GOOD) FAT IS IN. And healthy!! Over the summer, we explored the new Bulletproof coffee shop in Santa Monica. I've recently had several people ask me about how I make mine at home, so I wanted to share how I put my "buttered coffee" together each morning.
Bulletproof coffee (or another single-sourced, organic coffee if possible), freshly ground (if possible)
Grass-fed ghee or butter (I personally think ghee tastes MUCH better in the coffee)
Brain Octane oil or high quality coconut oil
Optional: Collagelatin (Bulletproof product made of collagen & grass-fed gelatin)
You will also need some kind of a blender (the coffee really doesn't taste the same and isn't nearly as palatable when not blended).
I purchase all of my ingredients at Erewhon. And I like to use the three Bulletproof products but you can use alternatives if you so choose.
Pour hot, freshly brewed, black coffee into your blender. Add 1 tablespoon of ghee. You can increase the fats as your body gets used to it. Some people need to start slowly, with less.
Add 1 tablespoon of Brain Octane.
Add 1 scoop of Collagelatin.
Blend until combined and frothy (about 30-60 seconds).
May your mornings never be the same again! xx
