Bulletproof Coffee

Bulletproof Coffee – Upgraded Coffee Blended With Grass-Fed Unsalted Butter And Brain Octane Oil

A recipe created by Dave Asprey in 2009 after his travels to Tibet, where he was introduced to yak-butter tea. This drink has revolutionised the way I, and many other people, consume coffee on a daily basis. Instead of a typical short-lived coffee rush, blending your high-end coffee with the healthy oils allows the caffeine to attach to the fats preventing it’s usual quick absorption into and through your body. In response, this gives you a sustained and prolonged energy rush whilst lubricating your brain with essential healthy fats that, mixed with a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, really does make you feel you are Neo and you just tapped into the matrix!

  • 1-2 Tablespoons Grass-Fed Butter/Ghee
