So how hard is it going to be to make Bullet Proof coffee? If you’re ready to start adding Bullet Proof coffee to your daily regimen, you’re in luck, since it’s easier to make than you might think. In fact, it only takes a few extra minutes after you’ve brewed your coffee, yet it will keep you feeling full all the way to lunch. Here, you can find out exactly what you need to prepare Bullet Proof coffee and how to do it.
Coffee. For best results, you’ll want to start with Bullet Proof coffee beans, as these are guaranteed to be free from toxins such as mold, giving you a healthier start to your day. For more flavor, consider starting with beans and grinding them yourself as freshly-ground beans are always tastier than store-bought coffee grounds.
Filtered water. If you’re not already drinking only filtered water, you certainly should! Most tap water, even if it’s considered safe to drink, contains chemicals and other toxins that you just don’t want in your body.
Brain Octane Oil. This is a specially-prepared form of coconut oil that is not only free from toxins, but it will also boost your brain power. Although you technically could use any organic coconut oil, the creator of the Bullet Proof diet recommends using Bullet Proof’s official Brain Octane Oil as it goes through extra processing to make sure it’s pure oil you’re getting.
Butter. This isn’t just any kind of butter. You’ll need unsalted butter from grass-fed cows. This butter has the healthy fats that you need to fuel your body all morning. Make sure you get the unsalted variety since coffee and salt don’t really mix.
- Brew 1 cup of coffee with 8 – 12 ounces of filtered water and 2 ½ tablespoons of your freshly-ground Bullet Proof coffee beans. We recommend using a French Press for brewing if possible since it bypasses the need for a filter which can filter out some essential coffee oils.
- Add up to 2 tablespoons of the Brain Octane Oil. If you’re just starting out, you’ll only want to add a teaspoon, then slowly add more over the course of a week until you’re adding at least 1 full tablespoon.
- Add up to 2 tablespoons of butter. If you’re not a huge fan of creamy coffee, then you may only want to add 1 tablespoon, but more provides more nutrients and benefits.
- Put everything into a blender. Mix on high speed for 20 – 30 seconds, or until it resembles a foamy latte.
How to Drink Bullet Proof Coffee
Exactly how you drink your Bullet Proof Coffee is up to you. You may drink it while reading the paper before you leave for the day, or you might also take it with you and enjoy it at work throughout the morning. Either way, the most important part of drinking Bullet Proof coffee is that you don’t eat anything with it.
This is because of the way Bullet Proof coffee works to keep your body in ketosis, so it will burn fat for fuel rather than carbohydrates. So if you’re the kind of person that likes to enjoy a piece of toast with your coffee, you still can, but you’ll just have to wait until your post-lunch coffee break!
