You’ve probably heard of Bulletproof Coffee® by now. Currently trending among health-conscientious bloggers, magazines, and social media sites, this brew promises to “keep you satisfied with level energy for 6 hours”- eliminating the crash most people experience a few hours after drinking regular coffee. "Bulletproof Coffee is a great way to get healthy fats first thing in the morning," says Kerry Bajaj, a Be Well Health Coach at Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. Starting the day with healthy fats provides energy, is good for cognitive function, and supports your hormonal system."
But what exactly is this “Butter Coffee”? It is actually a blend of brewed coffee with butter and MCT oil, which stands for medium chain triglycerides and is comprised of the fat from coconut/palm kernel oil. The actual brand, Bulletproof® coffee, was created in 2010 by Dave Asprey, an entrepreneur in Silicon Valley who, legend has it, was "literally rejuvenated" after being given yak butter tea by locals after hiking in Tibet in -10 degree weather at 18,000 feet. Asprey claims: ”It can promote brain function, memory, and energy levels. It can serve as a massive source of antioxidants and is associated with all sorts of positive health outcomes … you never feel hungry, get low energy …”
Which MCT oil to use? People are using oils such as coconut oil and chia seed oil to get the healthy fats. Coromega® has come up with a Superfood version of the original Bulletproof® recipe that allows you to reap the benefits of this brew while getting a daily dose of some of the best Superfood Oils. We blended our new Be Bright™ Superfood Oil Blend (a Non-GMO blend of coconut oil, chia seed oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil, black cumin seed oil) with an amazing cup of coffee and Kerrygold® unsalted butter for a ramped up version of Bulletproof® coffee.
Try this super-blend out for yourself using this 4-step recipe:
- Brew 1 cup (8 oz.) of coffee (in order to obtain all the benefits of toxin-free coffee, use Upgraded™ Coffee)
- 2 tbls. Kerrygold unsalted butter
- 1-2 tablespoons of Be Bright Superfood Oil Blend
- Mix it all in a blender (We recommend a Vitamix or NutriBullet) for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy like a foamy latte.
