Bulletproof Coffee.

Boom. 😉


I figured Monday morning was the most apropos time to share this incredibly delicious, creamy with no cream or butter, super easy recipe.

I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz. Butter in your coffee is now a thing. And a major thing apparently! Popular in the Paleo community, this coffee drink is traditionally made by blending a fresh cup of coffee with a pat of grass fed butter.

Since I’m doing the Whole 30, dairy is not an option, so I’m rolling with coconut oil.

The method is so easy! Just pour your cup of coffee along with a tablespoon of coconut oil and blend for five seconds.

Joe joked that it looked like chicken soup on the top before blending.

After five seconds it froths up beautifully and incorporates the all of the coconut oil.

This is the first time I’ve considered buying a Nutribullet. I’m imagining myself blending up my coffee in the mornings, just loving life!

As it is, my old clunker Hamilton Beach did just fine. 😉

So, if you are trying to avoid those heavy double doubles, <–Canadian term for two cream + two sugar, or pricey/chemically sweetened lattes at Starbucks, you must give this a try.

The creaminess with really surprise you and the taste is not bitter at all. This article explains how this new morning ritual could be more beneficial to your health than your current routine.

Granted I do use freshly ground, organic and fair trade beans.

Perhaps the coffee we buy is just naturally smoother, but compared to coconut oil just stirred in or simply black coffee, this is such a fun, healthy option to try.

Let me know what you think if you give this a whirl! I’m totally hooked.

Not surprising, I guess.

It is coffee after all. 😉

  1. What a delicious idea! No sugar or cream! I will try it!

    I have a NutriBullet and was envisioning using it so I guess I will have to wait for the coffee to cool down a bit before attempting to open the top. I never tried anything hot in there before.

    I wonder how this would work with iced coffee instead of hot.

    1. Hi Dawn! Let me know how your nutribullet works with this. I have a friend who uses hers for it and it seems to work fine. Good luck! 🙂

  2. i also do this! Never liked the idea of butter so always stuck w coconut oil and wow…the energy boost! On the nutribullet question….I personally don’t recommend it because I have dealt w hot liquids in mine befor and it formed a vacuumed like effect and I could not open the top for anything till it cooled off way later. I use my vita mix and.its perfect.

    1. Thanks for letting me know about the nutribullet. I don’t really have the counter space for another appliance anyway. And the Vitamix? Jealous. 😉

  3. I’ve been doing this for a couple years now. Almost every morning. It is delicious!! And so easy. 🙂

    1. So delicious! Do you use a nutribullet? I find my big ole blender a pain to wash for such a small amount of liquid. Hate dishes. 😉

  4. I keep hearing about bulletproof coffee and I must say I am intrigued. BUT, the thought of adding butter to my coffee makes my stomach hurt a tiny bit 😉 Coconut oil though? I can do. I wonder how this would work for tea? Hmmm… (P.S. great shots!)

    1. Tea could work too, I’d bet. Use Earl Grey tea and make a “London Fog”. Mmmmm. 🙂 Great idea! Thanks Gwen.
