Bulletproof coffee "recipe"

    A member had asked me how what is in it and how it is made, so thought I would also share here.

    Here's how I make it and why.

    I grind coffee beans and make coffee in a French press. While it is sitting, I prepare the blender. Toss in some butter. I use Irish butter and about probably two tbsp if I had to guess the amount. Then about two tbsp of coconut oil.

    Blend and drink. You can just stir it in, but to me, it tastes better blended.

    We drink it because it is supposed to help brain function. And I can attest to how fats and oils help your brain. I went on a ten day fast (a piece of fruit or vegetable was ok) and after the first day, my head felt foggy. I naturally gravitated to avocado. The oils in it helped to clear my head.

    I also found that a big mug of bulletproof coffee with whatever I was having for breakfast kept me from getting hungry for a fairly long time.

    Let me know how you like it if you try.

    That recipe makes two huge mugs worth for me and wifee. Big mugs like the one below, where I reflected on my finished breakfast and coffee. (feel free to groan)

    That's the contention anyway. The bulletproof coffee guy got the idea from the Tibetan yak tea, I suspect. Probably most effective where it is cold, I also suspect. But I don't know much about that stuff.

    Mahalo Kajun. I just eat the bacon on the side. Sometimes too creative is not necessarily best. :cool:

    Bacon grease instead of butter?

    Sometime ago DW & I got some Bulletproof MCT oil and we thought it OK but too rich or something but we really like it with just coconut oil & perhaps a splash of something alcoholic. I just noticed the BP MCT oil bottle claimed it was 8x better than coconut oil. How is that quantified? (Mad Men & Wall St).

    Irish butter and coconut oil works for me. I like both a lot individually. And they work well together in the coffee. But whatever you use, blending will be better than stirring, IMHO.
