Recipe: Coffee for Stamina, Focus, & Satiety

Calling all coffee lovers! If you enjoy your daily cup of Joe, but sometimes feel like you need a little extra something to get your motor running, this may be the drink for you.

 

Bulletproof Coffee is Bulletproof founder Dave Asprey's famous recipe that combines coffee and just the right fats for a delicious, frothy drink that keeps you energized, focused, and hunger-free for hours.

 

I like to sprinkle in magical mushroom Cordyceps for even more strength, stamina, energy, and concentration.

 

Before we dive into the recipe, note that, as with anything new, it may take your body some getting used to. It is advised to start off with smaller measurements of the fats and gradually increase.

 

The full recipe calls for:

 

  • 8 oz. Hot Coffee, brewed from high-quality coffee beans

    • This is super important. If you experience stomach cramping, headaches, scatter-brain, increased hunger, or energy crashes after drinking coffee it can very well have to do with the quality of what you're consuming. Go for organic, and pay attention to how it makes you feel. I've been into Vermont Coffee Company's organic dark roast because it makes me feel great and is sold at my local Stop & Shop.

  • 1-2 tbsp. Unsalted Grass-Fed Butter

    • Grass-fed butter is crucial for the satiety portion of this potion. Not only will it hold you over until lunch, it also adds a delightful creaminess to the recipe. I am a huge fan of Kerrygold

  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp. Brain Octane, MCT Oil, or Coconut Oil

    • This ingredient increases mental clarity and metabolic function. Brain Octane will give you the strongest effects, followed by MCT Oil, then Coconut Oil. 

  • 1 tsp. Cordyceps 

    • Cordyceps is said to boost the immune system and increase the cells' ability to absorb oxygen. Translation? More energy, strength, and focus. I get my Cordyceps from Moon Juice because I trust their quality control.

 

To make, combine all of the ingredients in a blender, mix, and enjoy!
