Liquid Benefits!

Keto Friendly RecipeButter coffee is an amazing way to start off your keto day. Not only does it energize you, it also stimulates your metabolism, boosts focus and improves brain function. You may also know it as Bulletproof coffee. The term Bulletproof coffee was coined by David Asprey, CEO of The Bulletproof Executive.

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 Bulletproof Coffee. This is simply coffee with butter and coconut oil. You probably have all 3 ingredients in your kitchen now!

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. 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!

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.

Butter Coffee!

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 for 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!).

In our video below, we used a French Press to brew our coffee. It’s one of our favorite ways to make our coffee! The French press gives the coffee a chance to really soak in the freshly boiled water giving it the full flavor (unlike water just passing through it like in regular brewers).

Here’s how we make butter coffee!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Make a cup of coffee your favorite way. We like to use a Turkish Coffee Pot. We simply simmer ground coffee in water for about 5 minutes and then strain it into our cup. You can also use a Moka Pot, a French press, or a coffee machine!
  2. Pour your brewed coffee into your blender (like a Nutribullet) and butter and coconut oil. Blend for about 10 seconds. You'll see it instantly become light and creamy!
  3. Pour the butter coffee into a mug and enjoy! Add in any other ingredients you’d like in this step like cinnamon or whipped cream!
