Have you heard about putting butter in your coffee?
Also known as buttercoffee is a high energy, filling, good for you morning drink!
The standard bulletproof coffee contains: grassfed butter & mct oil
Now you're probably thinking: Butter in your coffee?! What's MCT Oil? What does it do? Will I get fat?
Yes butter in your coffee, you heard me. Here's the deal: MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil is the same thing found in coconut oil & contributes to long list of coconut oil benefits, but MCT oil is much more concentrated. The shorter length of the carbon chain, makes it fast energy & quick burning! Compared to longer chains, MCTs do not store in fat cells as easily and get burned off as energy more quickly.
What's in my morning Bulletproof coffee?
- 1 cup of fresh brewed organic fair trade coffee
- ~1 tablespoon of Unsalted Grassfed butter
- 2 teaspoons of MCT oil ( you can build up to 2 Tablespoons)
- 1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
- ~5-8 drops of organic liquid stevia
- a shake of cinnamon
Then I blend it all together & you get the yummy frothy "latte" layer. I've been using the MagicBullet blender to mix mine every morning, just a few seconds on the blender & it's perfect. I also add another shake of cinnamon on top of my finished coffee drink!
Are you a chocolate person??
--> Occasionally I will change it up & add 1-2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder! A Mocha fusion bulletproof coffee!
