 Ever since I read about the health benefits of the Bulletproof Coffee I have been dying to try it. Bulletproof coffee is essentially coffee blended with grass-fed butter and MCT oil. Bulletproof coffee is meant to replace your breakfast and make you feel focused, and energized. Unfortunately I do not have easy access to grass-fed butter so I gave it a go with just the coconut oil. I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot with this coffee.

Coconut oil adds a hint of sweetness so many times I find there’s no need for additional sweetener. I often add a teaspoon of toasted carob powder which complements the flavour perfectly and further enhances the taste. If you are not a fan of carob add a teaspoon of Organic Cacao . I am hooked on this coconut oil coffee. The combination of caffeine and saturated fat really gives me a great and lasting energy boost.

How to make a coconut oil coffee that doesn’t suck.

The first couple times I tried to make a coconut oil coffee I simply added 1 tablespoon of semi solid coconut oil to my cup of coffee. That was a recipe for disaster! The coconut oil did not emulsify and I just ended up with an oily coffee. I have certainly learnt my lesson. The key to a creamy coconut oil coffee is blending. I recommend you prepare your coconut oil coffee the following way. I used my Nespresso Coffee Machine to brew my favourite Cubania capsule.

 

If you do not add milk or carob/cacao powder to the coffee then you may skip the microwave  step. Simply add your coconut oil to hot coffee and blend. You may also warm the liquid through on the stovetop if you prefer, I often do this.

Adding coconut oil to your coffee is a great way to supercharge and give your body a burst of energy to make it through the day. Not to mention you get all of the other amazing health benefits of coconut! This coconut oil coffee is soooo good. I have even made it for my daughter sans coffee and she loved it!

    This is great! Nix the microwave…you are killing nutrients and exposing yourself and home to radiation.

    Sadly you stopped me at ‘microwaved’. No thanks. If you’re really a ‘natural foodie’ kind of person, you’ll know better than to put anything that goes in your mouth in the microwave.

      As I mentioned in the post if your coconut oil is already in a liquid state then there is no need for the microwave step. You can also warm the coconut oil in a glass bottle in a pot of hot water. It all comes down to what each person feels comfortable using and eating. It’s impossible to escape all risks, and you have to judge how you choose to balance and reduce your level of risk in everything you do each day. As far as I am concerned there simply isn’t enough scientific evidence to back up the claims made against microwaves. Until there is I will continue to use one in my kitchen. Here are two articles which debunk some of these claims beautifully!

    I’ve been adding coconut oil to my coffee for years now but never even thought to blend it in! I just tried it and wow, what a difference it makes! No oily blobs sitting on top of my coffee this morning. Thanks for the tip!

    Mmm, I love your addition of carob. I, too, need no sweetener with this coffee. I do need food with it, lol. Thanks for sharing your unique spin on it, happy for you that the coconut oil is hitting the spot!!

    I’m definitely going to give this a try! Since starting Whole 30 I’ve pretty much given up coffee because it lacks all fun without creamer. I tried coconut oil and coconut milk but neither tasted good to me. Hopefully I like this one! (without the honey of course).

    Have a great day!

    I’m going to try this! I can’t do dairy, so like you, I tried the coconut oil in the coffee…I couldn’t understand why bulletproof coffee was so popular. ICK. LOL guess I should have kept experimenting!
