How to Make Bulletproof Coffee with Coconut Oil

Though it might be a bit intimidating and maybe even unappetizing to those who haven't given it a shot, bulletproof coffee with coconut oil is the ultimate drink for an energized day. With a great creamy and rich taste, the drink is one that will wake anyone up, with the unique combination of coffee, butter, and oil.

We've gone over all the basics of the drink, plus a few fun adaptations of the concept. And of course, why it's the ultimate upgrade to your morning routine, and start off on the right foot in a great mood.

What is bulletproof coffee?

Bulletproof coffee is comprised o three ingredients, butter, coconut oil, and coffee. Basically, coffee that is filled with a bunch of fat, which can be exchanged with heavy cream, coconut milk, or any other heavy source of fat. However, I believe that sticking to the classic recipe of just the basic ingredients is the best way to create it.

Otherwise known as keto coffee, butter coffee, or even fatty coffee, the bulletproof coffee recipe might sound a bit unappetizing to those who haven't even given it a sip, but trust us, it's something worth trying. Bulletproof coffee with coconut oil is more energy inducing than you think, and there are plenty of reasoning behind why you should upgrade your coffee mixture.

What is the best recipe?

Like I said before, sticking to the basics bullet is always the best bet when it comes to bulletproof coffee with coconut oil. But making sure you are creating your cup with the perfect amount of each ingredient is one of the most important steps to this process. To start, you will begin with a cup of brewed coffee.

To add to your cup, you will use two tablespoons of unsalted butter and two tablespoons of unrefined coconut oil. And the most important step, blend the mixture into perfection. The ingredients should be completely melted into each other and will produce a creamy mixture that is well stirred.

Don't be afraid to use a hand-held blender.

To perfect your stirring method, don't be afraid to put your mixture into a hand-held blender or even a NutriBullet. Though a NutriBullet might be a little complicated, it's an easy and messless way to quickly mix your coffee together in the morning. Simply blend your coffee for five to ten seconds, nothing more.

And with a NutriBullet, be sure you are letting the air out at least every 10 seconds if you choose to blend for more. However, it will provide some of the most delicious concoctions you'll ever taste.

Here's how to make it even healthier:

While we're still talking about blending your bulletproof coffee with coconut oil, we had to mention how it benefits your mixture. The act of blending your coffee will actually emulsify the healthy fats as well as creating a very delicious creamy beverage with a frothy top. And even if you don't have a blender, just stir your jar to everything is mixed up nicely together by hand, but be sure it is stirred, not shaken.

Plus, when you are choosing your ingredients, being sure to choose unsalted and grass-fed butter, as well as unrefined coconut oil, is crucial to maintaining the health benefits of the coffee. And try and refrain from using sugar.

And finally, it's a great first thing in the morning routine, after developing an appetite overnight. This way you won't screw with your ketone production by loading up on carbs, and rather becoming full on this delicious coffee. Just be sure to take it slow, enjoy every sip, this way you don't go overboard.

If you're looking to add something to your coffee to make it a bit more proactive, try some collagen peptides, these are used to help grow your hair, skin, and nails. Or, if this isn't your goal, try some pink salt, which is both tasty and healthy, adding some sodium and trace minerals.

Don't be afraid to try out different recipes.

Though I recommend sticking to the basics, there is always an opportunity to try new things. There are plenty of additions you can include to your recipe to spice things up. Some of those additions include some cocoa powder, cinnamon, or sugar-free syrups.

This way, you'll get some sweetness, and definitely add some flavor to your bulletproof coffee. Plus, all of these ingredients will mix beautifully with your already staple concoction.

Here's how you can amp it up:

If hot coffee isn't your thing, and you still want to give bulletproof coffee with coconut oil a shot, don't fret. An iced bulletproof coffee is still an option, and it doesn't include much of a different recipe.

This calls for two to three cups of already brewed coffee, two to three tablespoons of grass-fed unsalted butter and of course one to two tablespoons of coconut oil.

Add each of these ingredients to a blender, and once mixture, immediately store in the refrigerator with a few ice cubes, you don't want to water it down. A great way to create an easily grabbed cup the night before work, it's easy to make, and even easier to drink.

What are the effects of bulletproof coffee?

Bulletproof coffee is so raved about because the butter and coconut oil are used to increase the effects of caffeine in your coffee. And the best part, it will be the smoothest coffee you've ever had in your life.

Created the right way, bulletproof coffee not only tastes great, but will allow you to be aware and in the moment all day long with incredible focus. Plus, it is even used to control hunger and even promote weight loss, while still being low-carb.

There's even frozen bulletproof coffee shots.

Looking for even more options to create bulletproof coffee with coconut oil? If frozen coffee shots sound good, then you're in luck. I found this recipe on lowcarbediem, and their beverage looks great for any day. A treat that is filled with your favorite coffee, these coffee shots are created in chilled shot glasses.

Simply pour your coffee into the glasses and top with some whipped cream, add a tiny straw to add to the adorable aesthetic, and add them to your freezer. Once frozen, you've got an adorable party drink that is alcohol-free.

Plus, try out bulletproof hot chocolate or green tea.

Yet again found on lowcarbediem, bulletproof coffee can be made in the form of both hot chocolate and green tea. To start off, I'll talk about the hot chocolate, which is definitely a more high fat option of the bunch, but well worth the calorie splurge. Created easily in either hot or frozen hot chocolate, this mixture is one everyone needs to try to get their sugar fix.

And on the other end of the health specture, bulletproof green tea is a Matcha green tea that will in fact enhance your heath. A low carb version of the tea will even help you to burn fat. Check out their recipes!

Why it's an upgrade:

Now, to wrap it all up, let's recognize why bulletproof coffee with coconut oil is an upgrade to your boring morning coffee. Though ultimately it isn't the healthiest thing to drink in the morning, if you're truly looking for a healthy drink, water is always the ultimate choice, bulletproof coffee will always be the best option when you need some supercharged energy.

The unique combination is the ultimate way to wake up, and will allow you to function all day with the cup of caffeine. Plus, it really tastes great.
