Liquid Benefits through Butter Coffee!
Butter coffee is an amazing way to start off your keto day. Not only does it energize you, but it also stimulates your metabolism, boosts focus and improves brain function. It also tastes amazingly rich, creamy and decadent- exactly what you need in the morning!
As an advocate of the ketogenic lifestyle, one of his most popular methods for a supercharged, productive and healthy day is starting each morning with a cup of butter coffee. This is simply coffee with butter and coconut oil (truly keto coffee ingredients). You probably have all 3 ingredients in your kitchen now! When stocking your pantry to make keto butter coffee, be sure to use high-quality ingredients like grass-fed butter and organic, unfiltered coconut oil to get the most health benefits possible.
Some people don’t like the bitter taste of coffee and end up settling for a cup loaded with artificial flavors and sugars to mask the taste. However, you do not need to pour sugar into coffee just to make it taste great. Butter coffee is a good alternative to the artificial cup of junk, with the added benefit of being incredibly healthy. It’s creamy and even somewhat sweet even without any added sweetener.
MCT oil1 attributes to much of the drink’s benefits. Coconuts, and their healthy saturated fat-filled meat, are very high in MCT’s (medium chain triglycerides) which are easily digested by the body and uniquely metabolized. They are taken directly to the liver to provide long-lasting energy (much better than energy derived from carbohydrates). MCT oil provides benefits such as improved blood sugar regulation2, improved metabolism3, improved appetite regulation4, and are used to treat many diseases. You can think of MCT oil as a concentrated form of coconut oil.
Enjoying a cup of butter coffee in the mornings or afternoon gives you a boost of fat and keeps you feeling full for a long time.
Each ingredient serves an important function in making good butter coffee. That includes the Nutribullet! The key to making this coffee is high-speed blending – stirring will not give you the same results. You need to disperse the oil evenly throughout the drink or you might end up with a pool of coconut oil and butter floating at the top!
Some optional add-ins include a splash of cream, cinnamon, cocoa powder or a sugar-free syrup (but we’re keeping it natural and simple!).
