Have you ever thought about putting butter in your coffee? Does the mere thought of it sound gross?
Mike Ditka understands coffee. Well his character in Kicking & Screaming does. He tells Will Farrell ‘Coffee is the lifeblood that fuels the dreams of champions.’
I need this on a shirt. However coffee with butter is what keeps me going. Butter? Yea butter, not fake butter or I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter. I’m talking about real, KerryGold unsalted butter.
Well it’s actually really good.
While I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist, some evidence points to this being good for you as well.
It’s a version of BulletProof coffee that I make every morning.
What’s BulletProof coffee? You can learn all about it here, but basically it’s a great way to drink your coffee, in my opinion.
What you’ll need:
KerryGold unsalted butter
Almond milk (optional)
Coconut oil (optional)
Brew your coffee as normal
Pour your coffee into a mug or cup as normal, leaving room for extra ingredients & froth
Add a teaspoon or pat of butter (just drop it into the coffee)
Add a shot of almond milk
Add a pinch or tiny scoop of coconut oil
Add a pinch of cinnamon (or you can use pumpkin pie spice)
Now pour all this into your blender and blend for a few seconds until froth appears
Pour back into your mug or cup and drink
The real fats, Omega 3s and cinnamon all help get your system going in the morning. I also find that this mixture aids in making me feel full. However don’t use this as a meal replacement.
