Friday Feast: Bulletproof Coffee

I’ve been seeing Bulletproof Coffee all over the interwebs lately.  One of my favorite bloggers, Gabby from Gabby’s Gluten-Free, swears by it and I have to say I’ve been intrigued.  If you’re not familiar with Bulletproof Coffee, it is basically coffee blended together with butter and coconut oil.  Sounds gross right? Butter…in coffee?  Well not so fast, it is actually DELICIOUS!

According to Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Executive, our bodies are craving healthy fats.  By adding grass-fed, unsalted butter and MCT or coconut oil, you will be satisfied and have increased energy for up to 6 hours, which in turn programs our bodies to be more efficient at burning energy throughout the day.  Interesting concept…so I thought I’d give it a try.

I brewed a giant mug of coffee and added that to a blender with 2 tablespoons of Kerrygold unsalted butter and 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil.  Oh and a quick aside…if you’ve never tried Kerrygold butter before, you are missing out on one of the great pleasures in life…just sayin’

Bulletproof Coffee1I gave it a good buzz for about 10-15 seconds, basically until it looks creamy and has a nice foam on top.

Bulletproof CoffeeSo imagine my surprise when yesterday morning, I saw that this coffee was going to be featured on the Today Show!  Apparently Matt Lauer doesn’t think as highly of it as I do…

What do you think of Bulletproof Coffee?  Have you tried it?
