Bulletproof Coffee ♥♥♥ DIY

I am pretty sure that at this point in my life, coffee is just keeping my heart beating.  It is a first-thing-in-the-morning necessity for me, and I love everything about it.  That is why I was completely up for trying Bulletproof coffee when I saw Pretty Shiny Sparkly make it in her vlog.  Here is the link to the recipe I used to make it.

Basically you brew 1-2 cups of coffee, and then blend it with 1-2 TBs of unsalted butter, and 1-2 TBs of Coconut oil.  The web page where I got the recipe from definitely encourages you to use the highest quality ingredients, but sometimes you just have to use what`s on hand!  Make sure you run hot water in your blender first so it doesn't cool the coffee down when you pour it in.

I have to say that I was not blown away by this.  It tasted, fine, and had a fairly pleasant creaminess to it, but it definitely was not worth the extra calories that comes from drinking butter, and oil!  I tried to get my Dad to try it, but he gave me a big old NOPE face.  My Mom had a few sips and thought it was quite nice.  I might try making this again with only 1TB of butter, and maybe 1/2 TB of coconut oil because the first cup I made was slightly too rich!

The health benefit claims on this are pretty interesting.  It claims to increase mental acuity, and help to aid in weight loss.  I am skeptical.  I attempted to do long division later in the day to no avail, and I polished off three pieces of pizza for dinner... soooo.

Something I liked about this coffee was how pretty it looked, it had a lovely head of foam.  Plus, because of the name I could totally picture this being every superheroes morning java of choice before a long day of crime fighting, am I right?
