TVW Bulletproof Coffee Recipe
So, most of you have heard the HYPE of this butter in your coffee thing, right? To be honest it's completely changed my life and so many of my clients, family and friends, PLUS it tastes delish!
How you ask? Personally for me, currently a 16 months bulletproofer, I have;
- no more brain fog
- no more 12 starvation, wanting to eat everything and anything aka (HANGRY)
- no more 2pm SLUMP, instead, more energy
- less sugar and carb cravings
- lunch is easier to eat healthy and make good decisions (I think the sugar cravings part applies here too)
- lost weight and now I do not fluctuate
- since I have added collagen, my gut health has been better, and my hair and nails are FUERTE!
Serving 2 (16 ounces)
16 ounces brewed coffee or for my non- coffee people use Yerba Mate or tea of choice
1-2 tablespoons Brain Octane, or XCT oil (see notes below)
2 tablespoons KerryGold grass-fed butter or ghee (use ghee if you have any dairy issues)
1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
Stevia to taste, I use 3 drops per cup (of course it's optional)
Optional Immunity Boost- add 1 teaspoon Root and Bones mushroom powder
- Brew your coffee how you normally would or if you are doing mate, I have a video here.
- If you have extra hot water, add it to the blender to warm it up a bit.
- While your coffee or mate is brewing, in a blender you will add the rest of the ingredients.
- FROTH- add hot coffee to blender and blend with all ingredients for about 20 seconds until nice and frothy/foamy.
- Optional additions - Maca, adaptogens, vanilla, dark chocolate, etc
Do you have to buy BULLETPROOF COFFEE?
I always knew about coffee and the high amount of pesticides that are used. I always bought organic fair trade coffee, but now I have come to learn that even with a clean trusted company, not all is created equal. Have you ever had a cup and had horrible shakes, anxiety, headaches or what I jokingly call "cracked out". This is the main reason people believe they don’t tolerate coffee. It’s not coffee they don’t tolerate, it’s the mold toxins in the coffee.

WHAT IS THE OIL?
Brain Octane/ XCT oil? It is the most effective source of MCT on the market. It raises ketones in the body quicker than orther MCTs because of how it is made. These oils made by Bulletproof are 18x and 6x stronger than coconut oil, and have no flavor. They are NOT generic MCT oil, which is about 1.6x stronger than coconut oil. You would need about 22 TBSP of coconut oil to get the same benefits, get it?
By using Brain Octane you will increase your fat burning, mental clarity, curb hunger and sugar cravings and have more energy. Who wouldn't want to try it?
Here are the facts:
- Almost all companies use solvents or bleach to clean and deodorize their MCT oil, which can leave trace chemicals in the final product. We use earthen clay.
- Brain Octane is triple-distilled and lab-tested for purity. No C12, no solvents – no trace anything. It’s 100% pure.
- Brain Octane is not emulsified. Emulsified MCT oil has been suspended in water so that it will dissolve more easily into liquids. It is quite literally watered down. Plus, emulsification is expensive, so you end up paying more for a weaker product. There’s no need. To emulsify Bulletproof Coffee, just blend it for a few seconds.
- Bulletproof derives 100% of our Brain Octane from sustainable coconut oil, not palm oil, to protect the wild orangutan population in Southeast Asia. It’s not Bulletproof to destroy rainforests and kill orangutans.
- We process Brain Octane in the US, not overseas. It’s more expensive, but it means we can monitor the quality more closely. Plus it combats outsourcing, and the people processing Brain Octane get a fair wage
