Yes- you read that correctly-Bulletproof Coffee. It is filing, caffeinated and KETO. It revs your motor in the morning and keeps you feeling full until well past lunch. Some advocates swear it helps with brain function, but I’ll just say it gets me going, leaves me feeling very satisfied which helps with dieting and leave it at that. I love it. It is not your average cup of coffee.
If you have ever tired Bulletproof and had a slick of oil on the top, you are dong it wrong! Yes, bulletproof coffee has butter in it- don’t flip- but the only way to really get bulletproof to work is to whip in or froth it in a blender or Ninja blender. I posted this recipe on my Instagram a few weeks ago, but thought I would share the full recipe with you and all my little tricks. Give it a try and if you don’t love it (okay- at least like it), well, I guess plain ole coffee will have to do for you. I have researched several different ways to make this little caffeinated concoction, but this recipe seems to work best for me. Feel free to adjust sweetness, try heavy cream vs half and half etc. I use organic whenever possible. Enjoy!
1 /4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop collagen protein
1/4 cup heavy cream or full fat half & half*
1 TBSP unsalted, extra creamy* or organic butter
half a dropper of vanilla creme Stevia
8 oz hot, strong coffee
Kitchen tools- blender
*- I use Land O’ Lakes Coffeehouse half & half and Land O’ Lakes extra creamy butter
Method- Mkaes one serving
- In a blender, combine all ingredients. Whip until frothy. Serve immediately .
A few little tips:
Try heating your coffee in the microwave before blending to have an extra hot Bulletproof experience.
You can skip the almond milk, but I find it adds a nice flavor.
I like using a really rich half & half , but many recipes call for heavy cream. I just find the cream a bit too heavy.
To sweeten- try liquid stevia. I like vanilla creme flavor. Thanks to Tim Tebow for this tip.
