What is the deal with bulletproof coffee and what is it suppose to do?
Buy a coconut that weighs very heavily. Make sure there are no mold spots on the outside. Ideally the color of the skin will be a deep brown.
Take a sharp knife and hack at the 3 holes until you get at least one of them open. Deepen the hole with a chopstick (or other thin apparatus that will get you past the white flesh into the middle where all the juice is). Drain the coconut of all the water. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
When all water has drained, place coconut in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Take out of oven, place in a plastic bag, and immediately smash on ground outside house. Allow pieces to cool, and the meat will easily be taken off the brown shell. Cut the white meat into smaller pieces and place in food processor with a bit of hot water. Blend until the pieces are as pulverized as you can get it.
Pour the meat/water into a strainer or cheesecloth over a bowl, squeezing very hard to get all the liquid out, and collecting the meat pieces in the strainer/cheesecloth. Blend again with some warm water to extract more milk.
You can use the pulverized coconut meat pieces as coconut flour. Refrigerate the milk if you plan on consuming plain; I think it tastes better cold.
As you can see, it's a long process, so I don't do it too often. It will be the most delicious milk you have ever tasted, though.
So I made my BPC w/ghee instead of butter, and used CO of course, not just ghee or butter coffee, and for me, the ghee and the butter are about the same. I don't really like coffee that much anyways, and would much rather drink it SAD way but I havent for months. So I am not that crazy about the taste, but I do like that when it replaces breakfast, it saves me hundreds of calories that I can use later. And if it helps me achieve all the other benefits of fasting, bonus.
Now that I have had a few more sips, I think I might be leaning more towards butter.
I don't think it's magic, but it's been a handy tool if I don't have the food or time for breakfast, or if we run out of heavy cream. I think it tastes pretty good, and it gets a nice frothy top if you use a blender to make it.
