Tan and sweet Bulletproof Coffee
When I first started keto, I would eat a crap-ton of eggs. Like, day in and day out, eggs were on my plate. Whether they were boiled, scrambled or fried, those yellow and white things were there. Looking back, I think a lot of it was because it was a safe choice for me while I learned the ins and outs of keto. I knew they were low carb, high fat and moderate protein so I really couldn’t screw keto up too bad if I just consumed those. Plus, they were SUPER easy to make. Little did I know, I would quickly grow sick of eggs. Even the thought of eating an egg gave me the willies. I just couldn’t do it anymore. This left me in a bit of a keto pickle, because I needed something easy to replace the breakfast I was accustom to making. Then I found Bulletproof Coffee.
Now, Bulletproof Coffee (BPC) is not your average cup of joe. No. It’s a deliciously filling blend of your favorite coffee, grass-fed butter and the ever-so-powerful MCT oil. The benefits of BPC are really astounding if you research it. Not only is coffee packed full of nutrients and antioxidants, it can help you burn fat, may lower your risk of Type II Diabetes, and may lower your risk of Alzheimer’s. Paired with the benefits of MCT oil, BPC is the perfect way to start your day.
When I started to research the perfect way to make my BPC, I came away with some very disheartening findings. No one used anything sweet in their recipes. I like coffee. I mean, I am a mother of 4 who likes to function every day. So, I do like it. But I can’t drink it the “it’ll put hair on your chest” kind of way. I need mine tan and sweet. And with vanilla. So I started tinkering around with my measuring cups and found MY perfect way of making it.
My recipe is full fat. I mean FULL. FAT. I drink this by itself and don’t eat until hours later. Sometimes, I drink it right before I’m going to fast for 24 hours. This is just my preference. I also choose to put my BPC in a travel mug so I can shake it often. I hate the thought of taking a sip and have oil/butter residue on my lips. Shaking it keeps it frothy and well combined.
I hope you enjoy!
