Bulletproof coffee recipe question

I use a Keurig, so for a SINGLE serving of coffee, how much butter and oil? Everything I see shows for a whole pot, I think. I want to try this since creamer is my only vice right now and i HATE black coffee.

Also, how exactly do you prepare the ingredients? Melt them together and whisk them up then add to the coffee?

I've replaced the butter with Red palm oil. I've also added some herbs to add antioxidants to the mix. Here is my formula (tastes pretty good!).

1 tablespoon virgin Red Palm Oil 1 tablespoon MCT oil 1 teaspoon cocoa powder (I use Rapunzel brand, made in Germany) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ginger 1/4 teaspoon cayenne 1/4 teaspoon turmeric 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (increases the antioxidant power of the turmeric) 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Try to buy organic for the spices. I'm not all that paranoid about mycotoxins like D.A. is, but spices are notorious for getting contaminants in them.

I do swap out the palm oil for grass fed butter twice a week just for some variety, and to get the vitamins A,D,E, and K in butter. I use the red palm oil because it has a lot of vitamin E (tocopherols and tocotrienols) and CoQ10 in it, and I'm concerned about my heart health. Buy African palm oil (save the orangutans; don't buy Malaysian or Indonesian). The cheapest place is your nearest African grocery store; it is a lot cheaper than buying online. Make sure you get the red palm oil, not palm kernel oil.

Lastly, I find that a handheld immersion blender works best. I put the above witches brew in a stainless steel pot, add my coffee that I brewed in a french press to it, and blend away. No mess at all. I used to use a Ninja blender and the gasket seal at the top got ruined as the heat from the coffee melted it. Plus, a lot of the oily mix would get stuck to the sides of the plastic blender container.

I tend to use 1 TBSP of butter and Coconut oil/MCT oil at discretion, maybe 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon. This is per 8-12 ounces.

I have no problem loading 3 tbsp Coconut oil, 3 tbsp Butter, and 2 tbsp MCT into 8oz. of coffee coming from my bialetti stove-top coffee maker.

I put it all in a quart mason jar and stick blend, no need to pre-melt anything.

I used to use ghee, but find butter is so much more tasty and nutrition-appropriate for me. I would say Coconut oil is irreplaceable.

I see everyone here using butter and MCT. I use ghee in my coffee. Generally 1-2 TBSP per mug in the morning. After I make the coffee, I dump it in the blender with the ghee and do a quick 2 second mix. It comes out a little frothy and really great.

In doing this, do I get none of the benefits of MCT (since I am not putting that in). Do you think that in addition to the ghee I should put a TBSP of Coconut oil?

For onc french press pot, I typically use 2 TBSP of MCT and 2 TBSP of kerrygold. I have experimented with more MCT but found I got similar results with the 2 TBSP.

It really depends on your preference. I would start by using 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 teaspoon of MCT oil. Once you get used to doing it everyday, you can make adjustments based on how you feel. For example, if you feel particularly hungry or tired one morning you would want to use more butter and oil.

I posted my full recipe which tastes almost like a vanilla latte!
