Bulletproof coffee is a concoction of coffee, butter (sometimes ghee), and coconut oil or MCT oil. And the mental and physical benefits it promises are far greater than the effects of a caffeine buzz can provide you.
It’s a high-calorie coffee drink intended as an on-the-go breakfast alternative. A blender is used to combine 2 cups of coffee, 2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter, and 1–2 tablespoons of MCT oil.
The name refers to any coffee prepared in roughly the same proportions as Asprey's original recipe: 8-12 ounces brewed coffee, 1–2 tablespoons coconut oil (or MCT oil), and 1–2 tablespoons grassfed butter or ghee. Before consuming, combine the mixture to emulsify it (only mixing causes the fat and liquid to separate).
The fat in the butter and coconut oil gives the body the required nutrition it needs while supposedly reducing hunger pangs because of the combination of ingredients.
It's intended to keep your body in ketosis, the metabolic state in which your body burns fat instead of glucose. The foamy latte-like beverage has a thick and creamy mouthfeel.
What is the origin of this? What's the point of drinking it? As far as I know, it is not connected to the keto diet. In addition, how about a little butter in your java? Seriously? These and many other questions are answered in this video.. Warning: Don't throw away your French press just yet!
Bulletproof coffee is an on-the-go breakfast alternative created by American entrepreneur and self-described “biohacker” Dave Asprey. Bulletproof coffee was named after Asprey's collection of wellness goods and supplements.
In the morning I needed something to hold me over and give me energy and taste delicious.
If you use a french press or a classic coffee machine like I do, you'll get roughly 8 to 12 ounces directly into your blender. I use a little blender jar, but if you're making it for two or more, no issue. I'm going to add a tablespoon of grass-fed butter, a lot of coffee and tea tree oil, and a tablespoon of MCT oil (many people use coconut oil, I use MCT oil for Bulletproof Coffee).
Today, I'm going to show you exactly how to make a foamy, creamy cup of bulletproof coffee! You get all the nutrition and energy you need in a single cup of coffee! Especially when you're on an intermittent fasting diet!
