A craze which is sweeping across the health and fitness community is a new way of making your daily coffee. It’s called bulletproof coffee and it’s something that you’ll likely start drinking, and for very good reason. Here is bulletproof coffee – what, how and why…
Coffee brewed along with unsalted, grass-fed butter, and coconut oil, is a drink which was started by Dave Asprey, a Silicon Valley investor who studied and tested ways to improve his health, boost his brain function and even to lower his biological age. He developed bulletproof coffee from an adapted version of something which has been done for many years in Tibet. Used in a yak butter tea drink in Tibet, the addition of butter to coffee created a creamy, tasteful and energy boosting drink which had so many great benefits that soon every health nut was starting to talk about it and use it as part of their daily routine.
#1 Brew a cup of as you normally would, but without any milk or sugar added. Use quality coffee and filtered water, if possible.
#2 Add 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter (or ghee). Use less initially if it’s too creamy for your taste.
#3 Add 1-2 tablespoons of quality coconut oil. Use less initially if it’s too creamy for your taste.
#4 Mix all these ingredients into a blender and blend for 20-30 seconds, or until you get a nice frothy mix (like a latte). You can preheat your blender by adding boiled water and leaving it to heat up while your coffee brews.
#5 Serve up and enjoy!
By blending coffee with butter and coconut oil, you’re pulling in complementary benefits which lead to a great result. As a whole it improves brain function, gives you sustained energy levels for prolonged periods (also due to higher calories consumed), and promotes fat burning all day long. Quality grass-fed, unsalted butter is even better than unhomogenized, grass-fed, raw organic cream, because of the casein protein in normal cream. The reason for adding coconut oil? Well, we recently looked at why coconut oil is the next big thing, so read that feature to understand why adding it to this mix is so beneficial.
So give bulletproof coffee a try, enjoy its great taste and let all the benefits and boosted energy levels give you more than enough reason to make this a part of your daily routine.
