    Would this work with just coconut oil? I am avoiding butter - so sad I know - in an effort to reduce autoimmune inflammation.

    not sure whether it's considered pure BPC, but i hardly ever use butter/ghee in mine. i use coconut oil OR MCT oil (which is coconut + palm oil) and coconut milk. i don't put tons in and don't blend it (so might not have the texture of pure BPC) but works well for me (i prefer MCT oil over pure coconut oil).

I then add a few drops of stevia extract and since I don't have a hand blender I just use a wisk. It ends up tasting pretty decent, but I still feel hungry a couple hours later. I've also gained about 3 lbs since I've started drinking it, even though I've been using it as a breakfast replacement. What I usually eat for breakfast is leftovers, eggs, or Trader Joe's gluten free chicken sausage.

    As a side note, I have noticed that I tolerate this coffee drink better - no stomach discomfort at all with the butter added.
    I made this Saturday morning for the first time and I was starving only an hour later, although I don't think I added enough fat only used a couple of tsp of coconut oil and felt a little queasy two hours after - could this be the gastro discomfort people mention?

    I heard pure coconut oil can make people queasy if they're not used to digesting pure fat properly. I guess you can try it several more times until your body gets used to it. As for the hunger, I think it's because you're not putting enough fat into it. I use a Tbsp each of butter and coco oil and it's completely fine for me, on hungry breakfast mornings and non-hungry breakfasts alike.

    I'm sorry, I tried this again today with the quantities of butter specified and the whole thing made me feel sick, the slick oily feeling of the fat and the coconut oil....I think I'm going to give this one a miss but good luck with it if you are trying it out....

    one of the speakers at the paleo summit mentioned the difficulty of digesting fats and oils until your body is used to it--i'm fairly certain i heard it from Dr. Allison Siebecker in her talk on troubleshooting common digestive disorders on a paleo diet (but if anyone knows for sure and i'm wrong, please correct me). anyway, the advice was to introduce new things (such as higher quantities of fats/oils than someone is used to) slowly. allow your body time to adapt to the shift in what it is being asked to digest.

    that being said, i have never used the rec'ed quantity of butter/oils in my BPC. if i did, i might find it unappealing. as is, with my greatly reduced quantities, i love it!

    It doesn't have to be all or nothing... you can just use unsalted butter w/o the MCT and Coconut Oil. Ease into it.

    The recipe as written is a bit burly for me. I started with 1/2-1 tbls of butter and 1/2-1 tbls of cocunut oil per large sized mug. I find this recipe to be my sweet spot. It's delicious and charges me up real good. Been doing it regularly for about three months now. Love it.

    Yeah, me too. I can't swing it during the weekdays, but on the weekends I really like waking up hitting the BPC and then doing my workout (usually about 1-2 hours after the BPC *not* right away) and it's great. I feel like I have so much energy!!

    I think this would be hard to drink because I'd want to put stevia in it, not butter, and that would just get my insulin going.
