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”.

    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.

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

      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).

      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

      I would do 1 tbsp of each into each pod

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