Bulletproof Coffee

WE talk about coffee a lot. And so does our April Guest, Bulletproof’s Dave Asprey. Chances are you’ve heard of his buzz-worthy Bulletproof coffee recipe, maybe you’re even making your own version — but are you making the version that set fire to the trend? We’re sharing how to make Bulletproof Coffee the right way from the OG himself.

Dave has single-handedly made coffee loaded with butter and coconut a bonafide wellness trend, and we’re all about it. The brain-boosting benefits of this brew are very real, including potential brain cell protection, mental clarity, a major energy boost that doesn’t dip, a jolt to the metabolism, appetite reduction and a strong dose of polyphenols (super-important; read more about this in Dave’s new book Head Strong.)

The quality of each of these ingredients makes a big difference here. It’s key that the coffee used is mold-free (yes, this is a thing! And mold has a big connection to ‘brain fog’), the ghee comes from grass-fed cows, and the coconut oil is MCT oil (read Superfood Spotlight: MCT Oil). For the real deal, Bulletproof’s own coconut-derived products are very good.

Whether you’ve never tried this delicious morning bev or have been slouching along with a version that you’re not sure is right, learn how to make the original Bulletproof Coffee properly with this simple yet powerful recipe…

How To Make Bulletproof Coffee

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp grass-fed butter or ghee, unsalted
1 Tbsp of Bulletproof Brain Octane* or XCT oil*
1 cup hot coffee brewed with low-toxin beans

*these are 18x and 6x stronger than coconut oil, with no flavor. They are NOT generic MCT oil, which is about 1.6x stronger than coconut oil

Directions:

Brew coffee, using a metal filter if possible (like french press or gold filter drip).

Boil extra water and pour it into a blender while your coffee brews to pre-heat the blender.

Dump out the hot water from the now pre-heated  blender and add the brewed coffee, butter, and Brain Octane oil.  Blend until there is a thick layer of foam on top like a latte. The stronger the blender, the better. A spoon won’t work.

Add cinnamon, vanilla, dark chocolate,  or a sweetener like Stevia, erythritol, or xylitol. Enjoy warm!

  1. I’d love to know the best blender for bulletproof coffee. My first Ninja couldn’t take the heat and broke. Since then I’ve been using an immersion hand blender but don’t like the idea of blending it in a plastic cup. Any recommendations?

    • Hey Meghan, i’ve been enjoying that kind of coffee for years now and my best tip would be : Buy a milk frother. Around 10$ on amazon. Now instead of pouring in all the coffee, you simply pour in a little + The butter + Oil and you froth it right in your Cup. Then you add the remaining coffee et Voila ; Same results, Less Dishes to wash

  3. Maybe this diet is great for men, but all the saturated fat in unlimited amouts of meat, eggs, coconut & dairy (some lchf protocols allow dairy) pushed up my cholesterol to near fatal levels and I didnt lose any weight or feel better. My system became increasingly sluggish and my reproductive system was thrown right out of whack. I’m far healthier and leaner on high fruit & veg severely limited flesh protein and gluten-free cereals in moderate amounts. We’re all diffetent and no one diet plan fits all. Keep an open mind and watch your body’s response very closely, especially after 12 months, or sooner even, after changing your eating habits.

  4. Sounds delish!
    When you say the oil is “stronger” , what exactly are we referring to?

  5. Love your comment, Michelle. Everyone’s experience is going to be different and there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to good health.
