Do you want butter with that?
June 14 2015
How much do you love butter? Do you love it on your bagel? Do you love it on your toast? Do you love it in your coffee? Wait, what? Butter in my coffee? Yup, You heard right. The newest coffee trend right now is adding butter to your daily brew! Why would anyone want to do that you ask?
Butter coffee is brewed coffee blended with butter and something called MCT oil, which stands for medium chain triglycerides and is filledwith the fat from coconut/palm kernel oil. There’s a coffee company in California called “Bulletproof” who’s beans are used along with this butter and MCT oil mix works best with. The best part of it all is that the coffee company not only sells coffee beans, but it also sells the right mix of the MCT oils; which is a huge relief for me, because before today, I didn’t know what MCT oil was and I don’t know where I’d find that at the supermarket. The bullet proof company calls their MCT oils “Brain Octane.”
Here’s what you have to do to make the perfect cup of buttered coffee:
1) 1 cup of freshly brewed black bulletproof coffee
2) 1 tbsp of unsalted, grass-fed butter
3) 1 tbsp of MCT oil
Then, blend your coffee until your up is nice and frothy.
Now, time for the good stuff. What are the benefits to adding butter and MCT oils to your coffee?
-Helps with energy and focus
-Gives you greater mental clarity
-Give you a caffeine buzz, without the jitters
-Sustains your energy overlong periods of time (for 6 hours)
-Keeps you feeling “full” for a long time
-Aids in weight loss
-Gives you a higher performance level
According to my studies, the “fats” in the grass-fed unsalted butter, are considered “good fats.” These good fats help regulate cholesterol, recreate brain and body cell walls and puts your body in “fat burning mode” all day. This cup of butter coffee is meant to be a meal replacement, so it will fill you up very quickly.
