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


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


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!
