Give your morning an extra boost with Bulletproof Keto Coffee! Dave Asprey's “Bulletproof Coffee” gives your body a sustainable boost of energy from healthy fats instead of sugar. Burning fat ketones has a blood sugar stabilizing effect to keep you mentally and physically feeling your best all day.
Bulletproof Coffee works well in combination with intermittent fasting and The Ketogenic Diet. It’s a rich and delicious way to cut out carbohydrate-rich milk, sugar, and artificial creamers from your morning routine. Enjoy!
Coffee: Fresh brewed, organic coffee beans are high in vitamin B2, pantothenic acid, potassium, manganese, and polyphenol antioxidants. Antioxidants fend off free radicals, protect against oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation. In moderation, organic coffee can be a healthful addition to a high quality, whole foods diet. However, always consider your personal tolerance for coffee and choose water-processed decaffeinated.
Butter: Organic, grass-fed butter is packed with a variety of beneficial fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins. It also doesn’t contain any sugar, carbs, or dangerous trans fats. And while conventional dairy may be contaminated with added hormones and antibiotics, grass-fed butter is anti-inflammatory. Always seek out local, organic butter from raw milk and grass fed cows.
Coconut Oil: Organic, unrefined coconut oil is made up of healthy fats called medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs). MCFAs are easy to digest, not really stored as fat, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal. Refined or processed coconut oil can be bleached, overheated, or extracted with hexane. Always choose organic, extra virgin, unrefined, pure coconut oil.
2 cups Hot Coffee
2 Tbsp Grass-Fed Butter or Ghee
2 Tbsp Organic Coconut Oil or MCT Oil
Optional ½ tsp Organic Cinnamon
Combine all ingredients into a blender. Blend until creamy (allowing the lid to vent steam). Pour into your favorite mug and sprinkle with cinnamon, as desired.
TIP: For a mocha, try adding one teaspoon of organic cocoa powder.
