What is Bullet-proof coffee?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 09, 2012 at 5:59 AM

I have seen quite a few questions and answers about bullet proof coffee and I have no idea what it is. I am in Australia and I thought that maybe it might be a brand of coffee in the US but not sure. I drink a lot of coffee with milk and if there is something better out there that I can have that is more Paleo that would be great.

@Wendy... nobody doing Bulletproof IF thinks they are fasting. It's just a title. We all know it's really keto-cycling. We use 'IF' because we keep identical hours.

Although dairy does trigger an insulin response, which is why some bulletproof coffee drinkers, who are also fasting, use coconut products instead of butter

Yes, you can do this and fast, if what you're after is insulin regulation as fat, unlike carbs (and to some extent protein) does not trigger an insulin response.

Why does it sound horrible? butter is simply churned up cream. It's really not very different from using heavy cream.

Butter is just overwhipped cream.

The key is unsalted grass-fed butter. I've personally never tried it, but plan on doing so within the next few days so I'll have to report what I think of it.

Couldnt agree more. I tried it with coconut milk a few weeks ago and felt really sick for a few hours after and threw up a lot. I will skick with my full cream milk. Even though I really need to lose weight I decided when I started Paleo that I am beginning a life style change instead of just considering it a diet. So I continue having my milky coffee because that is what I love. I have been on Paleo for four weeks now and have everything right as far as food is concerned and have lost 7 kilos. So Paul enjoy your creamy coffee cause life is way too short.

sounds horrible. Butter in coffee? I tried mine with coconut milk and gagged. I think I'll stick with either full-fat cream or nothing. :)

I tried Bulletproof coffee several weeks ago. I'm hooked. I use Kerrygold butter and coconut oil. I like the flavor of the unrefined oil over the refined oil. On occation, I use MCT oil, but too much at one time will give you an upset stomach.

Just this morning I tried to drink my coffee with half and half, like I used to. It doesn't even come close to being a good cup-o-joe...

Butter contains natural emulsifiers which will allow you to suspend the fat particles evenly in your coffee, not just float them on top. You need to blend the coffee in a blender of with a small stick-blender while adding chunks of cold butter. The end product is similar to a latte.

Coffee + grass-fed butter + MCT Oil blended and served. Common substitutions include coconut butter for dairy butter, coconut oil for MCT oil, coconut milk for dairy butter.

Yea, yea, yea... butter & coconut oil in coffee. It either sounds delicious or disgusting.

It's not that simple, though. Bulletproof coffee is single-estate, wet-processed beans to minimize mycotoxins. This is the entire point of bulletproof.

Adding the butter & oil is just to facilitate the ketosis if you happen to be persuing the 'Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting' protocol.

Here is my personal "bulletproof coffee" recipe

2 shots of espresso with an equal amount of water, 1 tablespoon heavy cream, 1 heaping teaspoon of coconut oil, 1 pinch cinnamon

Stir with a spoon and enjoy...feeling energized and easily satiated until lunchtime

paleo people drink so much coffee because they have no natural energy and have to use stimulants.

I have this every morning... For those of you who say "butter in coffee is gross", you're not using SALTED butter, are you? If that's the case than I'd agree it's pretty gross. Sweet unsalted butter is just cream in a solid form.

I tried it for the first time. Butter it was great! I used Ireland Grass fed butter and unrefined coconut oil. I was very skeptical but… WOW! It was actually delicious. (The jury is still out on the losing fat part.)

"Shaken not stirred"

Blending works. Shaking in a canteen works. Stirring will leave a lot of butter floating on top.
