Bullet Proof Coffee

Ok, I know it sounds weird and disgusting, but trust me, I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tastes.

So what is a bullet proof coffee? Well I thought it was just about dropping a spoonful of butter in your cup.(GROSS!) But Nooo! It’s more than that. I finally researched it until I found some good instructions and recipes that I was willing to try. Most of the stuff I had read just said “add unsalted grass fed butter to your coffee”. Yeah, no. That’s gross. Then I read some more as to why people are doing this and I found a website that explained it all.

The fat helps keep you full. Ok, I understand that since I am eating low carb. But come on, butter in my coffee?? GROSS!

I read some more…. Then decided “i’ll do it!” I need to know what all the fuss is about. The recipe I tried is this..


  • 1 tsp gingerbread spice per 2 tbsp of coffee grounds (I used my pumpkin spice)
  • 1 tbsp of grass-fed butter  (I used regular salted butter)
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil


Sprinkle the gingerbread spice mix into the coffee grounds. Brew the coffee using your preferred method.

Pour hot coffee into a blender. Add grass-fed butter and coconut oil, plus any extras like sweetener if preferred.

Blend for 30-60 seconds until frothy and creamy.

Sprinkle with extra gingerbread spice.

This was the result..


It tasted like I had add some Malibu rum and cream. I really enjoyed it. I am going to try a few different recipes and see which ones I like best. You can also do this with hot cocoa and with teas.
