Maybe you’ve heard of butter coffee, sometimes referred to as bulletproof coffee. If you haven’t, it might seem a little strange at first… you put butter in your coffee rather than cream or milk. You can simply add 1-2 tablespoons on unsalted grass-fed butter to black coffee and blend it until frothy and creamy, similar to the consistency of a latte. For added benefits, you can also add 1-2 tablespoons of MCT oil, which is found in coconut oil, before blending. While some people may love the taste of butter and do this solely for the taste - there are actually a number of health benefits that come from adding butter to your coffee as well.
The idea behind butter coffee is that because butter is made of healthy fats that take longer for your body to break down it provides you with longer lasting energy, mental clarity, it gives you a caffeine buzz while eliminating jitters, curbs hunger, burns more fat throughout the day and can even help with weight loss. Grass-fed butter can also help regulate cholesterol because it has just the right amount of omega-6, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K.
Before adding a nice frothy cup of butter coffee to your morning routine, consult your doctor to make sure that this is a healthy option for your lifestyle. If it seems like a good fit, give butter coffee a try and see what the craze is all about!
