By now, you may have heard about Bulletproof Coffee! It has revitalized my morning cup of Joe to a healthy treat. I’m not going to try and hide my love for all that is coffee. And the fact of the matter is, coffee in small doses has many health benefits.
For years I have been a Starbucks aficionado and a Gold card member 3 times over. The reality is that given the temptation I have had, I still continue to have a hard time saying no to that Grande cup of yummy goodness. Learning to make something I love equally that is infinitely better for my health has been a huge win for me. I promise that once you try it, you won’t want to go back! (or maybe not nearly as often)
Recently, I decided to try my hand at a seasonal version that combines my regular bullet coffee with a Pumpkin Spice Twist. Get out that blender and lets get creative!
Ingredients for Bulletproof Coffee
- 1 cup of Hot Coffee
I use a variety of organic, fair trade brands and pour into blender. The French Press works well for this and is what I use most mornings.
- 1-1.5 Tbs Organic Almond Butter
- 1 cube of Kerrygold Butter (Yes, you read that correctly)
It is the best in my opinion and available in many markets or you can order here. What you are really looking for is real butter that came from happy, grass-fed cows milk.
- 1 Tbs of Organic Coconut Oil
- 1 Splash of Almond Milk or Organic Whole Milk
Now, for the Pumpkin Spice Twist
- 1 Tbs of Raw and Local Honey or Maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter blend
- 1 Tsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice
For the best results, blend the ingredients well in a high quality blender like a Vitamix if possible.
You can also add organic pumpkin puree however I find this is just the right balance of creamy and sweet without being to thick or sweet.
Blend well and drink immediately. I like to top mine with a little bit of cinnamon or nutmeg. This combination of amazing and whole ingredients will power you through your morning and the delicious combo will keep you coming back for more. Consuming healthy fats will actually aid in weight loss and will help in appetite control. So, happy fall and here is to a healthier and yummier morning routine!
