Bullet proof coffee is known to trigger weight-loss, increase energy levels, decrease hunger, elevate mood, and boost your metabolism. All that in a cup of coffee!?
I was the girl who never cared for coffee or understood the coffee obsession. Whenever someone offered coffee to me, my face said it all –“Noo thaank youuu…”
Well times have changed! Call me a trader, but coffee is for me! Bulletproof coffee (BPC) that is.
When you first hear exactly what bullet proof coffee is and what’s in it, you’ll be sure to be taken aback. I sure was!
What IS Bulletproof Coffee anyway?
It’s not your average cup of joe. The base of this coffee involves:
- Fresh Coffee
- Grass-fed Butter
- Coconut Oil or MCT oil
I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “butter in coffee?”, but stay with me and keep an open mind!
Grass-fed butter (unsalted)
That’s right, butter. It’ll be the most creamy and most tasty cup of coffee you’ve ever had. Grass-fed butter brings high-quality fats and nutrients to the table. Butter will add omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D, E , K & K2 to your coffee. It’s like drinking a multivitamin!
Another item that provides so many benefit is MTC oil! MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides and it’s really a concentrated form of coconut oil that’s easily absorbed by the body. Most common benefits include: improved cognitive function, aids in weight-loss, enhances the Keto Diet, and more.
As I said earlier, I used to hate coffee. So what changed?
When I first starting making this drink, I wanted to like it so badly because of all the health benefits I kept reading about. I endured many trials and errors. If I was going to drink coffee, I wanted to make sure it would be super tasty and, of course, keto friendly – and I did!
Here’s my delicious version!
Fresh Coffee 12 oz
2 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp MCT Oil
2 Tbsp Heavy Cream
1 Tsp Organic Stevia
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract (occasionally)
Note: Blend with an Immersion Blender (milk frother). This step is very important! Using one of these will ensure that everything is combined perfectly. If you’re on a budget, don’t fret! You won’t have to take out a loan to purchase one. In fact, they’re typically only a few dollars. I’ve suggested one below.
I know, it’s weird. But believe me, if you try it you will not regret it. Five days out of the week I make time to brew a cup of bulletproof coffee before I head out to work early in the morning and I’m always so glad I did!
So what has it done for me?
Since I’ve started drinking BPC, I’ve reaped these benefits:
- Suppressed hunger and satisfaction until my next meal. No unnecessary snacking here. I feel full for quite a long time!
- Honestly I feel like Wonder Woman after drinking my BPC; elevated work productivity is a real thing! It really is like drinking a cup of pure energy.
- Brain fog is a thing of the past! “Hello, yes I remember your name!” Okay fine, I’m still bad at names but I really have noticed a huge improvement in my mental clarity.
