  • anyone have bulletproof coffee...but with ghee instead of butter?

    I'm familiar with bulletproof coffee but the recipe calls for butter. Has anyone tried it with ghee? I'm trying to stay completely off butter so sticking with ghee. About how much you think the coffee needs? I assume just throw it all in a blender (coffee and ghee?)

    thanks guys!

    I made it with ghee throughout my Whole 30 months. It was about 1 1/2 tbsp ghee and 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil with 16 oz coffee, whipped in a blender. Yummy!

      That sounds so disgusting but I'm definitely trying it! I will be in heaven if I can find a good coffee creamer. Hopefully this does the trick.

      ps - do you melt down the ghee and oil before putting in blender? thanks!

        Heck yeah and it's tasty - I tried it for the first time a few days ago and look forward to it in the morning. I was putting coconut milk in my coffee and could have sworn it would take an army to get me away from my coconut milk - now all I want is the ghee, except I only drop a tsp. in there w/ some cinnamon and turmeric and just whip it with a mini whisk...yum.

            Turmeric in coffee? Sounds YUM! Do you get any extra energy or satiation from adding it? And yes, ghee and EVCO makes great BP coffee.

              You can't really taste the turmeric; I put it in because they're both bitter (coffee) and tumeric has such great health qualities, I gave it a shot and loved it! I don't notice any extra energy or satiation, but maybe I'll pay mind to it tomorrow morning. My husband got hungry far before I did, so maybe

                Does adding coconut oil change the taste of the coffee? I throw in just ghee and I'm not a huge fan. Might try some cinnamon and see if that helps a little.

                  I made it with ghee and it was delicious. I don't drink it anymore though. But I make the ghee myself and cook it until the solids are dark brown. The ghee has lots of caramel flavors that way, so it is really good in the coffee. I was really surprised how "creamy" it got with the ghee. Just don't let it sit for a very long time, it will separate out again eventually.

                    i prefer it with ghee to butter. tastes more like a decent latte made with cream to me than if i make it with butter.

                      So to make ghee, do I just melt regular butter and what part do I discard? Seems a little difficult to do but I might try this way because the store bought ghee doesn't do too much for me.

                        Just melt the butter in a pan and simmer it until the milk solids are dark brown. They will form little clumps. Then strain the whole thing - I use a mesh strainer lined with a couple paper towels. The milk solids will catch in the strainer and the ghee will filter through.

                        Be careful though. the ghee is insanely hot - so cool it for a bit before straining - and then still be careful. The burns from hot butter are not nice.

                          I tried it with Ghee, and really disliked it. But I don't like bulletproof coffee anyways, makes me feel like gagging. I wish I liked it though! Cold-brewed black or with heavy cream is the way to go for me.

                            That is the only way I do it. Ghee and heavy whipping cream. I like the way it emulsifies. Yum.

                              I want to try the stuff you recommend but amazon has it for $13! that is a ton. I can't find that stuff in the stores either unfortunately here in Seattle
