Today I bring you something cool. Bulletproof coffee. If you have been living under a rock then you already know that Bulletproof coffee has taken America by storm. Bulletproof coffee promises to Increase energy, help digestion, suppress appetite, and even help with metabolism. Bulletproof coffee started out In the Paleo community or even those who aren’t full Paleo or even Paleo at all.
What Is Bulletproof Coffee?
If you are unfamiliar with what bulletproof coffee Is I’m going to explain to you what It Is. It’s described as a clean way of drinking coffee without all the sugar and cream. Bulletproof Coffee Is non-toxic, pesticide-free, and herbicide free ( herbicide a substance that is toxic to plants and is used to destroy unwanted vegetation.) You are blending It with chain triglyceride ( chain triglycerides (MCTs) are partially man-made fats. The name refers to the way the carbon atoms are arranged in their chemical structure. MCTs are generally made by processing coconut and palm kernel oils in the laboratory. Usual dietary fats, by comparison, are long-chain triglycerides. People use MCTs as medicine.) Bulletproof Coffee Is best If consumed first thing In the morning and on an empty stomach or with a light breakfast.
The original Bulletproof coffee involves blending coconut oil a well-known superfood high In medium chain triglycerides. If you didn’t know the original bulletproof coffee calls for grass-fed butter. The healthy fats blended with the coffee help create satiety (the quality or state of being fed or gratified to or beyond capacity) ward off hunger, jump-start the metabolism, and can help the caffeine from coffee digest more slowly, which prevents insulin crashes often caused by caffeine Intake.
I know It sounds too good to be true butter and all. If you are all for grass-fed butter In your coffee you do you and add that butter. I am not too keen adding butter of any kind to my coffee. I’m going to give you some tips on how to make Bulletproof Coffee Vegan and still beneficial just like the original.
1) If you aren’t keen on using grass-fed butter or even vegan butter you can simply replace the butter with 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil or non-organic depending on what you have. Also when looking for coconut oil make sure It’s cold pressed. By making sure your coconut oil Is cold-pressed you are avoiding pesticides and heating agents.
2) Another choice you can use In replace of butter Is coconut butter. I don’t use coconut butter mainly because It Is expensive. But It Is a good option If you are looking for a buttery taste to your coffee that leaves your coffee frothy.
3) If you opt not to use coconut butter or any butter at all you can always add some heavy cream or some non-dairy cream. The coconut oil you add will still make your coffee frothy but by adding some type of creamer your coffee will be extra frothy.
I know you came here for the recipe and I’m about to give you the recipe. I just want to say sorry for adding some facts and getting sidetracked. I thought you would appreciate some facts before the recipe.
Bulletproof Coffee Vegan, Gluten Free,& Keto
The Ingredients: 8 oz. of brewed coffee. ( I make 16 oz. because I love coffee)
1 Tbsp of coconut oil (or any type of butter you are using)
4 packets of stevia ( Or any keto, vegan or gluten-free sweetener of choice)

OPTIONAL: Creamer of choice
DIRECTIONS: Blended the coffee and all of your Ingredients In a blender. Blend until nice and frothy. Pour Into your coffee mug and sprinkle some extra pumpkin pie spice as a garnish.
Use the pictures as a reference to what It should look like In the blender and I will post a picture of the Ingredients I use every day for my coffee. At the end of the post, I will tell you a little how I feel when I drink bulletproof coffee.
The Ingredients I Use Every day For Bulletproof Coffee
This Is What It Should Look Like While It’s Blending
And This Is What It Looks Like When It’s Done Blending
It’s nice and Frothy. When you pour It Into your mug the liquid will pour out first and then the froth. Don’t worry your coffee Is still nice and frothy on top. If you want you can add extra pumpkin pie spice I do. Pumpkin Pie Spice Is a good way to get flavor without extra carbs or calories. But like always you can add double the Ingredients If It fits your macros.
