I Love… Bullet Proof Coffee

Coffee

Yup, I love it.

I have favorite mugs, flavors, ways to prep it, and times to drink it.

It is the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning.  My Keurig is on and heated just waiting for me.

I love to Bullet Proof it.

Bullet Proofing is adding a serving of fat to coffee other than cream that sustains me for the majority of the morning.  It cuts my hunger in half and gives me great energy.

Here are a few ways to Bullet Proof your coffee.

NOW Foods Mct 100% Oil, 32-Fluid Ounces

or

Before you cringe – keep in mind I eat a Low Carb High Fat diet.  Fat is important to my day.

To accomplish this I add either a tablespoon of unsalted Kerrygold – the heat of the coffee melts it.  Or I add 1-2 teaspoons of MCT Oil.  Which is a Medium Chain Triglyceride from Coconut Oil.  It is not for everyone and you need to build up the serving size slowly (tummy issues).

Now for the yummy stuff!

I use flavored stevia drops for sweetness and flavors.  Butter Toffee and Hazelnut are my favorites.

A shake of Tumeric spice

   and CinnamonI still use a stir of cream as I just like it light.  Or I add a dollop of Coconut Cream.

Then the key to all of this –

A frother. Any inexpensive one will do.  Which I should mention if you have kids who like Hot Cocoa and you don’t have one of these… get one!

 All warm, creamy and spicy.  The perfect start to my day.

You should know that I have a Dunkin Donuts in very close walking distance to my Little Red House.  And I prefer this coffee over theirs – any day!

I Love That!

  1. I just started making these too! Sometimes I put a drop of peppermint essential oil in too. But it’s the butter that I think I love. I need to get back to my low carb eating….going to explore your wonderful site! (found you on Link Party Palooza)
