How to Bullet Proof Your Coffee

Bullet Proof Coffee

Seattle Coffee and butter

If any of you follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook then you have heard about my new addiction.  For some of you this is your first interaction with any of my posts. So let me break down what my new addiction is. Butter in my coffer.  The recipe was a regular cup of joe (Fair trade, organic, decaf or reg.) combined with 2 tablespoons of Kerry Gold (unsalted) butter.  My first reaction was exactly what yours is right now!  Yuck!  This butter coffee craze was adjusted into my daily life,  I was still doing CrossFit,  eating clean, staying hydrated and burning fat with healthy fat (butter).


As you can imagine this perked my curiosity, so I decided to take the plunge and try it out.  Prior to this experiment I had been drinking my coffee black for 12 years.  The thought of adding something like butter to my coffee was different yet a possible perk!  After trying it out I did notice my lips were a little smoother.  The best part of it all was that I didn’t crave sweets and I was fuller longer.  If you know me personally you know that my favorite cheat treat is Oreos and ice cream. However I had no desire for it, not only throughout the day but more important at night time.  These were the immediate results.  As time went on (2 weeks) my pants were looser also. My literal response out loud was ,”What?!”  So far this was not a bad experiment.  After reading Dave Asprey’s blog post “Recipe: How to Make Coffee Bullet Proof and Your Morning Too” I started using my coffee and butter as my breakfast.

Why? Read this great article by John Kiefer “Carb Back-Loading Step 1: Breakfast”  After reading this explanation and the previous article I was sold that this set up was a successful way to start your day off.


Below is the instruction on how to Bullet Proof your own coffee each morning.  This is my personal prescription each morning and I highly recommend you try it out also.

Pre-Funk: Drink 20-40 oz of H2O (depending on weight) immediately after waking. DO NOT put anything in your mouth until you have finished your “Pre-Funk!”

Step 1: Make a pot of coffee

Step 2: Slice 2 tablespoons of Kerry Gold (unsalted) butter or any grass fed butter of your choice *natural flavor is NOT grass fed.

Step 3: Pour your 8-12 oz of coffee into your blender (I use my Blend Tec or Magic Bullet), add 2tbs of butter, then blend for no more then 10 seconds. You don’t want to increase too much pressure or have too much foam.

Step 4: Enjoy the foaming goodness!  Repeat a second cup when you feel your body can handle it. This is recommended at some point.
