  • Made My First Bulletproof Coffee

    So i made my first bulletproof coffee this morning and it was quite good. I don't have the money to afford the MCT, but i was still happy. I made:

    About 16 ounces of black 100% Columbian 8'oclock coffee(whole bean and ground), 1 tsp of coconut oil, and 2 tsp of butter(the good stuff), and blended it all up in my magic bullet.

    Man was it good. So, beisdes the MCT does anybody have any tweaks or suggestions on this?

    I have never used the MCT or the fancy beans as it is just too expensive for those without plenty of $. My budget is in fumes by week 3 of my paycheck as it is.

    So I do a good organic coffee and use quality extra virgin coconut oil and just stir it in. Sometimes I might add a little sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg when serving. A little spice makes it nice. . .

      I use whatever good dark roasted coffee is on sale at my farmers market and do it as follows 12-16oz of brewed coffee and 4 tablespoons of unsalted kerrygold and leave it at that.

      Yum Yum...

        I believe that the coconut oil is the MCT or acts as one.

          I cant understand how to drink this as all the fat just sits on the top! I cant get the fat to mix in.
          Am I going wrong somewhere or is it meant to seperate like that?
          I'm not a complete idiot! There's parts missing!!

            Do you use a blender to mix it all together? Also, if you let it sit there too long anyway, the fat will rise to the top. Not that you want fresh coffee that's been sitting there for a while anyway =P

              Put it in the blender. I use coconut oil instead of MCT oil. Sometimes I put a little unsweetened chocolate in there. It helps keep the oil blended and tastes pretty good but it tends to stick to the bottom of the cup so it's somewhat wasteful.

                    I use stevia and sometimes some raw, cacao powder along with my organic butter. This has helped me wean from my "flavored creamers" I had been addicted to. I've been putting mine in my travel mug and giving it a swirl every so often to keep it stirred!

                      I use grass-fed butter, MCT oil, raw cocoa powder and xylitol. It's awesome! Tastes like a mocha from starbucks if you do it right...
                      You definitely have to use a blender, when you blend it right it becomes frothy like a latte and it really increases the experience.

                        Get a thermos mug that has a strong sealed top. The. Poor it all in and shake it. Works just as good as a blender.

                          I've started having this with my big egg breakfast and I've been staying full much longer! I was actually surprised, but it seems to be helping. I love eggs and even though I was cooking them in butter and often eating them with bacon I felt I wasn't getting enough fat in my mornings.

                          Now I think I definitely am!

                            OK, I may be a dodo head (not doo-doo) buy what is this MCT oil I hear mention of?
                            I enjoy my coffee in the morgan, but still use a little sugar and powdered creamer. I want to do something better, so thought I would give these options a try.

                              I whip hwc at night and put it in the fridge. In the morning I add a big dollop of it to my coffee and stir it in, and then put another big dollop on top. Just because I can. It's super creamy and tastes like a 6.00 grande whipped something or other. Not technically bulletproof but serves the same purpose - caffeine and fat
