My love of butter coffee is strong.

I start each morning with a cup of butter coffee (sometimes referred to as bulletproof or keto coffee). Its ingredients provide an immediate energy boost, stimulate my metabolism, optimize brain function and keep me satiated until early afternoon.

The three ingredients in butter coffee are grass-fed butter (substitute ghee if dairy-free), MCT oil and coffee. The ROI in terms of health benefits of each is pretty outstanding.

Grass-fed Butter: Rich in omega-3s, CLA, beta-carotene, antioxidants, and vitamins A, K, D & E.

MCT Oil: Medium-chain triglycerides increase cognitive function and energy and boost the metabolism.

Coffee: A great source of antioxidants and essential nutrients.

Let’s get started:

After brewing your coffee, pour the single serving into a high speed blender (I use the ninja bullet) and add 1 tablespoon of grass-fed butter and 1 tablespoon of MCT oil. Blend to a creamy consistency, pour the finished product into your favorite mug and enjoy!

Brace yourself for more energy, improved brain function and optimal digestion.

Combine this with a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting and you will be well on your way to feeling, performing and looking like a superhero. But more on that later…
