Bulletproof-Esque







I am sure y'all have heard the rage about Bulletproof Coffee.  I had a lot of doubts about it.  I mean how could it not be oily and how in the world could it be good for you?  Well, I bit the bullet (no pun intended) and decided to see what the fuss was about.  I was pleasantly surprised.

Here's how I made mine.  It is not how Bulletproof is supposed to be made, but as someone who is over weight and wants to lose weight, I just could not bring myself to add butter....


I N G R E D I E N T S

1 standard coffee cup full of HOT coffee

1 Tbls coconut oil




M E T H O D

Put the two ingredients into blender and blend for at least a minute until the oil is completely emulsified in the coffee.

Drink it while it is hot.  When it starts to cool down too much the oil will begin to separate.


This drink is so luxurious.  You would think it had a ton of cream in it, when in fact it is dairy free.  Granted, I am skeptical about how healthy this drink is as not enough research has been done on coconut oil to prove that it is more healthy than harmful.  From what I have read, researchers have yet to determine if coconut oil has harmful saturated fats or not.  It does appear, based on some reading, that it can help support weight loss as well as increase the amount of HDL cholesterol in your body (the good stuff).  I will not be making this on the regular, but it is a great treat drink.  It will be especially good on those mornings that I do not have time to sit down and eat.


Have a happy Tuesday!
