Bulletproof Coffee or as my husband and I call it, "Brain Coffee" is so smooth, rich and nutrient dense! Plus I'll share the benefits of drinking this coffee, also known as "Keto Coffee" and "Butter Coffee".
Make your coffee. Brew 1 cup (8-12 ounces) of coffee using filtered water with 2 ½ heaping tablespoons of freshly ground (Bulletproof) Coffee Beans, I like the Mentalist roast. I use a small French Press since I make it one cup at a time. Place coffee grounds in press, pouring 8-12 oz (I do about 8) over the top, stir and place on plunger (don't press down) - brew for 3 1/2 - 4 minutes. Or brew using Keurig pods or
While your coffee is brewing froth your cream (optional)
In a blender,addBrain Octane Oil. Add 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons of Brain Octane Oil (start slow – it’s powerful!)
Add 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter (I sometimes use salted grass-fed butter) or grass-fed ghee. I don't mind the salt, but if you are sensitive, be sure to use unsalted butter.
Pour in one scoop of collagen powder; once coffee is finished brewing, depress plunger and pour coffee over the MCT oil, butter, and collagen powder. Place lid on blender.
Mix it all in a blender* for 20-30 seconds until it looks like a creamy latte. There will be a good amount of foam on top.
Pour into mug and if desired, spoon a few tablespoons of the frothed foam on top. Enjoy!
MILK | Make sure you are using organic, whole full fat milk, cream or half and half. No additives should be in the ingredients list, ever! If using a smoothie sized blender, like a Ninja (my fave) or Nutribullet, be careful when opening the top, unscrew it very slowly, the heat builds pressure and it will "spit" and "spurt" when you open the lid. Sometimes I place a towel or paper towel over the top, as long as you release the lid slowly, you shouldn't have any problems. You can also use a regular sized blender and you shouldn't experience this same effect.
