Bullet coffee, a great alternative to a meal or a snack

Many people talk about ‘bullet coffee’ or ‘bullet-proof coffee’, and immediately when you mention there’s butter and/or coconut oil involved, there is an absolute look of disgust or nausea at the thought.

The reality is far different.  I find it actually quite tasty & extremely filling.  And it’s my on-the-go version of a meal, when I just can’t be asked to eat, or just would rather have something to drink vs. food.  It’s my main alternative to breakfast, if I know I’m having a late lunch out.

Hitting the spot – Bullet Coffee!

There are many ways of making it, but the purist way is namely:

  • Hot coffee, add
  • 2 TBSP unsalted butter, and add
  • 1-2 TBSP MCT oil (medium chain tricglyceride oil), aka ‘coconut oil’
  • and make sure you blend it with a hand mixer or blender (to “emulsify it”) otherwise if you stir, you will get fat droplets on top….which doesn’t bother me!

My feedback to you is, add butter & oil, in whatever combination works for you!
I find I can’t do as much as the recommended version above,

My version of bullet coffee, is

  • hot coffee with
  • 1-2 tsp coconut oil, plus
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter, plus
  • splash of cream.

And that works for me!

So open your mind & give it a try, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised!
