I want to start out by saying, yes it is weird putting butter in your coffee...but if you think about it what is cream made from and we all use cream in our coffee. Give it a try, I promise it won't disappoint!
If you have a drip coffee maker that is where it all starts. If you don't and can't or don't want to purchase one then don't, use your normal coffee maker. It won't make or break what we are doing for the body when drinking this kind of coffee.
***TIP: Drip Coffee Maker Definition...when water seeps through the ground coffee, absorbing its oils and essences, solely under gravity. It then passes through the bottom of the filter giving you drinkable coffee. (YES, I'm a little nerdy)
Time to ground up coffee beans. I have one grinder in my house for coffee and one for spices. Do NOT mix the two otherwise you will have some nasty tasting drinks and food. Grind up a couple cups worth and place in a zip lock tight bag for the weeks use.
Make coffee in your coffee pot (for 2-4 cups)
Line your drip coffee maker with a filter bag. Fill it up to the 4 cups line on your filter or add 1/4 c. ground coffee into the filter if it isn't marked (I like mine dark). Slowly pour 2 cups of hot water over the coffee grounds.
While we wait for the water to pass through the filter lets turn our attention to our blender. Add butter and coconut oil to the blender. Once the coffee has fully filtered or brewed pour into the blender. Blend until smooth (20 seconds)
If you like your coffee sweet, like mine, add a couple squeezes of liquid stevia to the bottom of your favorite coffee mug. Pour the blended coffee into your mug...the coffee now looks more like a latte just a heads up!
I tend to place mine in the microwave for 30-60 seconds to make sure it is nice and hot.
***TIP: under my recipe notes I'm going to go over some of the health benefits that come with drinking bullet coffee if interested
Here is a great link explaining the health benefits of bullet coffee. I first found out about bullet coffee when my husband came home from football practice, and the nutritionist and weight staff started guys on it. Remember my husband plays in the NFL, and trust you me they would never do anything to harm their players! So, if it is good enough for them to try then I decided to give it a go. I find I feel more energetic, stay fuller longer in the morning, and the coconut oil has improved the dryness of my skin!
