Make Your Coffee Bulletproof
If you are a coffee fiend and just cannot start your day without it, make your coffee bulletproof to protect your adrenals, provide long lasting energy for your brain and nourish your gut at the same time.
You see, straight caffeine provides us a quick jolt of energy which can send our adrenals into overdrive. If you’re prone to the jitters or feel a little anxious after a cup of coffee….. that’s a sure fire sign you’r adrenals are stressed out.
When you add fat to a coffee, you instantly delay the release of the caffeine resulting in a long slow drawn out energy boost rather than a quick fix that gives you the shakes. Think of it as a buffer.
Our favourite fat to add to bulletproof coffee is Ghee or Grass fed Organic Butter. Grass fed butter and Ghee is rich in fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K which are crucial for healthy skin, eye and brain development. Grass-fed butter contains five times more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than butter from grain-fed cows. CLA is a beneficial fatty acid linked to fighting cancer, preventing bone loss, and helping your body build muscle rather than store fat. Its anti-inflammatory properties help it support nearly every system in your body, and provide protection from chronic inflammatory disease.
Coconut oil is obviously an excellent choice for Vegans thanks to it’s antibacterial properties as is Cacao Butter which lends a super luxurious texture to your beverage.
Add to that a scoop of gelatine and collagen powders for protein and gut healing super powers. We like the NutraOrganics brand because we know it isn’t contributing to deforestation of the Amazon Jungle and is Aussie sourced all the way. Leave out if you are Vegan and consider replacing with Chaga or Tremella Mushroom Powders instead!
Here you have a fantastic energy fuel source that is rich in amino acids to repair muscles and joints, a variety of minerals and vitamins critical to cognitive function and fat to power up your brain, support a healthy metabolism and stave off hunger for hours.
To make a Bulletproof Coffee………..
- Take your shot of espresso, percolated or plunger coffee and throw it in a blender with 1 cup of hot water.
- Add a good tablespoon of Ghee/ Coconut Oil/ Cacao Butter or Grass fed Butter
- Add a scoop each of Gelatin and Collagen Powders (totally optional).
- If you like it sweet, add 5 drops of Stevia to it, pinch of vanilla powder or a drop of cinnamon doTerra essential oil.
Blend on high for 30 seconds and you should have a super creamy, luscious coffee.
If you really want to pimp up your Bulletproof Coffee, how about adding some adaptogens or mushroom powders to your coffee?
Yes Gwenyth Paltrow has done a fine job of making them sound super wanky but adaptogens are pow-er-ful!
Here are some of our favourites below -
We are obsessed with Sun Potion's Yin Blend for women which includes Pearl, Maca, Ashwaganda and many more potent ingredients with added Rhodiola and Mucuna Dopa for extra cognitive and nervous system support.
We also absolutely love Superfeast tonic mushrooms, especially the JING Adrenal Blend.
We hope this has inspired you to give it a good go!
Honestly once you have gone Bulletproof with your mornings, it will be hard to go back for the energy burst is second to none.
