Bulletproof Coffee

Have you guys heard of bulletproof coffee?  I have here and there, but recently got interested and started reading some articles on it.  You can learn more herehere and here.  The premise is essentially, we are hungry because we are lacking in healthy, satiating fats in our day.  If you add healthy fats through organic butter and coconut oil, you will have more energy and feel fuller.  Technically, you are supposed to use the actual bulletproof coffee, or french pressed coffee, but I read a bunch of recipes that had other ways of doing.  I didn't want to immediately add in a couple of tablespoons of butter and oil, as I think it might be too much for my stomach, so I started small. 


Ingredients
1 cup black coffee
1 teaspoon organic unsalted butter
1 teaspoon organic coconut oil
2 drops vanilla
1 packet stevia

- Place all ingredients in a blender and blender until frothy.

I have made this a couple days in a row, and these are the amounts that work best for me.  It tastes like a latte (not butter or coconut oil!) and definitely kept me fuller!  I don't know if my energy levels were as high as I expected, but that could be the weather and kids :)  This is super tasty, and definitely helped me spread out my morning eating.  I plan to do some more recipe mixing with this too!

Cheers!

Happy Thursday lovelies!
