I've been hearing rumors about people putting butter in their coffee. Supposedly, this is called a Bulletproof Coffee. Why on earth would someone want to put butter in their coffee??? Well, if you have been around the “Paleo World” for long, you know that we aren't scared of fat. In fact, we know that our bodies thrive on fat. And, butter is, essentially, cream all churned up, so why be scared?
I took the plunge! And I must say, IT IS UN-friggin-BELIEVABLE! It came out frothy, smooth, and filling! I love my coffee in the morning, in fact, it's one thing I have always said I will never give up. I've given up enough in my life…my coffee is staying!
(at least) 2 TB of unsalted Kerrigold Butter or other unsalted, high quality butter.
2 cups of High Quality Coffee
1- Make coffee as you normally would.
2- Preheat your blender by putting hot water in it while you make the coffee. I didn't do this because I used a stick blender.
3- Empty hot water from the now pre-heated blender and add the brewed coffee, butter, and MCT oil. Blend until there is a thick layer of foam on top like a latte. A Blend-tec or Vitamix blender will do it quickly, a normal countertop blender takes longer, and a handblender works ok if you don’t have a real blender.
4- (optional) Add cinnamon, vanilla, dark chocolate, or a sweetener like Stevia, erythritol, or xylitol (this is technically a sacrilege if you use awesome beans, but some people love their mocha…)
5- Put on a satisfied look and enjoy the high performance buzz from your creamy mug of Bulletproof Coffee as you watch your chubby, tired coworkers eat low-fat yogurt and twigs for breakfast. It’s almost unfair.
