bulletproof coffee
I’m pretty sure that everyone and their mama  started a new exercise  program this month to help make their resolution to get fit a reality.

Did you know that  caffeine helps improve athletic performance? I figure that’s a good enough reason to have a cup of  bulletproof coffee before a workout.

I wanted to make something grab and go so I put all the ingredients into a “drop” of awesomeness.

To be fair the guy that created bulletproof coffee recommends you only use organic grass-fed butter and his brand of coffee for better health benefits in this drink.

My motto is “buy what you can afford”.

Now there are other benefits to this amazing drink hidden in all the delicious fats:

Health Benefits of Butter

Butter has been demonized for years since it is full of saturated fats but the truth is that grass-fed butter is rich in fat-soluble vitamins with the most important one being Vitamin K2, which has amazing health benefits.

In the Rotterdam Study, they discovered that those who had the highest intake of Vitamin K2 had a 57% lower risk of dying from heart disease.

From fighting cancer, improving dental health and improving bone density, Vitamin K2 is the bees knees and grass-fed butter is full of it.

Health Benefits of Coconut oil

Coconut oil, according to several current studies and reports, can even help with the prevention of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, pancreatitis, and HIV. Let’s take a closer look at how coconut oil can back up those claims:

  • Coconut Oil as Cancer Prevention. Cancer cells are simple cells. Cancer cells cannot produce the extra organisms that metabolize ketones and convert fat into energy, so a diet high in fats like coconut oil help to thwart cancer growth. Basically, when there are no simple sugars for the cancer cells to use as energy, they are starved out; they can’t reproduce.
  •  Coconut Oil as Alzheimer’s Inhibitor. Studies have shown that boosting ketones can improve cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients.  Mary Newport, a renowned neonatologist from Florida is a leading expert in the field of study in this area.
  •  Coconut Oil as Diabetes Destructor. Did you know that consuming just 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil can lower your blood sugar in just 30 minutes?  The science behind that lays in the fact that coconut oil can enter cells much like glucose can, but while regulating your body’s blood sugar levels.  It allows the cells to absorb healthy good energy without necessarily producing more insulin.  Here is the true wonderment of taking coconut oil daily as a type 1 or type 2 diabetic:  you could actually replace your body’s insulin dependency by using a coconut oil supplement, according to several studies.
  •  Coconut Oil as HIV Warrior. Fifty mL of coconut oil contains lauric acid, as discussed, which has anti-viral qualities. In one recent study, an infant who tested positive for HIV was fed an infant formula high in coconut oil and subsequently tested HIV negative due to the coconut oil helping boost the production of viral busting monolaurin in the body.  In short, the monolaurin byproduct in coconut oil—which is also found naturally in breast milk—is an all-natural, organic anti-viral substance that boosts the body’s autoimmune system.

    I have read to use 1 tbsp of coconut oil and 1 tbsp of of grass fed butter to 8oz of coffee. With this recipe, combining the butter and coconut oil and pouring into the uce cube tray, what would u say the measurement would be in each “cube”? I wonder if each cube is still giving 1 tbsp of each, or maybe 1/2 tbsp of each?

      Because the mixture is blended, I cant guarantee amounts hun. You can always put 1 tbsp of coconut oil and butter into each pod and freeze.

      measure your ice cube trays.. fill one with two tablespoons of water and you will see how much to fill your sections once you’ve made your bulletproof concoction.

    What’s the nutritional information?

    Can I ask, what’s the reason for using ghee rather than just combining the butter with the other ingredients?

    • October 15, 2017 at 4:45 pm

      To make it 100% lactose free. You can use melted butter hun.

    If using store-bought ghee, how much is needed? Do the proportions stay the same, or do you have to adjust? I have never made it myself and an unfamiliar with how much ghee 1/2 cup of butter will churn out (pun definitely intended).

    • October 29, 2017 at 10:55 am

      It makes about 1/2 cup minus a tablespoon. You can use 1/2 cup and it works out fine hun.

    HI there, I’m interested in making these pods, but I’m already using ghee and MCT oil, so do you know how much of this I would use compared to the butter and coconut oil? Thanks

    • November 7, 2017 at 9:55 am

      I would do 1 tbsp of each into each pod

    Can you add whey protein and collagen to the drops before freezing?

    Hi, I love the idea of BP coffee fat bombs! This would make the 4:30 am coffee so much easier! Do you think that Swerve could be added to these in advance? Then, all I would have to add is my cream 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!!!

    Kelly… first off thank you for posting. I have started my day with bulletproof coffee for a while and saw this post and checked it out. I mean, anytime I can save time in the morning by premaking most of the ingredients…. great. I also like the addition of cinnamon… very tasty.

    My problem is with your nutritional breakdown. 1 and of 1/2 cups of basically fat divided into 9 servings isn’t going to get you 115 calories. I added it to MyFitpal and got completely different numbers. Since I like to stick close to 200 calories for my AM coffee, I made the servings 15.
