Bulletproof coffee was founded by an entrepreneur, and self-described “bio hacker” named David Asprey. He discovered the recipe while hiking in Tibet. The end result is a cup of coffee that gives a “clean” caffeine high and weight loss at the same time.

Ingredients

Coffee

This part is pretty simple. Brew a regular cup of coffee using the same machine you have at home. Since you’re adding butter, we would recommend a darker roast, like Bella Finca to handle the butter flavor.

Use 16oz cup of coffee

Grass-fed Butter

Grass-fed butter is the key because it contains a high level of butyric acid and conjugated linoleic oil, which are known to reduce inflammation. It also has more nutrients, like vitamin A. A great brand of grass-fed butter is Kerrygold and can be found at your local supermarket.

Use 1 tablespoon of grass-fed butter.

MCT Oil

MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, and are naturally found in coconut and palm oil. MCT oil is a tasteless, translucent liquid that comes from a man-made process called fractionation, which involves extracting the MCTs from a natural substance such as the coconut oil. MCTs are an ideal energy source and known for their quick absorption.

Add 1 teaspoon of MCT oil.
