    Usually, the bitterness of coffee is smoothed out with milk or low-fat cream. But more and more popularity is gained by a drink with butter - bulletproof coffee. Let's find out how and why to make it.

    Keto coffee (bulletproof coffee) is called the favorite drink of Silicon Valley, the star of "Big Little Lies" Shailene Woodley confesses her love for in - on the Jimmy Fallon show, she told how wonderful it is to recharge with a dose of healthy fats and caffeine in the morning.

    Bulletproof coffee was born from a traditional Tibetan drink and is now served in many US cafes.

    What is bulletproof coffee?

    It is coffee with butter and MCT oil. MCT is oil that is composed of medium-chain triglycerides (fatty acids). It tastes like a latte, but without milk and sugar.

    Who invented bulletproof coffee?

    The drink became popular thanks to Dave Asprey, an investor, and biohacker from Silicon Valley. In 2004, Dave went on a trip to Tibet, where he tasted the national drink - tea with butter and yak milk.

    Back home, Asprey experimented with the recipe for a long time to achieve the effect of "hot frappuccino without milk and sugar."

    In 2009, he achieved the desired taste and effect, posted a 460 calorie coffee recipe, and suggested replacing breakfast with it.

    Asprey built a whole "bulletproof coffee empire" - launched a whole series of products under the Bulletproof brand.

    There are two versions of MCT oil on sale - Brain Octane Oil (contains 8 carbon atoms) and XCT Oil (a combination of 8 and 10 carbon triglyceride chains), coffee, bars, dietary supplements.

    Since its launch in 2011, sales have grown by 700%. In 2015, Bulletproof Coffеe opened in Los Angeles, where you can drink a fatty drink for $ 6-7 or eat "bulletproof" ice cream. Asprey raised a $ 19 million investment for a 'fat" cafe in New York.

    However, the idea of fatty drinks is not new in itself. It is customary to add a piece of butter to coffee in the northern regions of Italy.

    Why do you need bulletproof coffee?

    It's delicious. This is a quick breakfast, for which you do not need to get up an hour earlier. But if the argument can be considered unconditional benefits, then bulletproof coffee improves cognitive functions (Dave Asprey claims that thanks to the drink increased IQ by 20 points), helps to lose weight and lower cholesterol.

    Medium-chain fatty acids are anti-inflammatory. A properly prepared bulletproof coffee can help you enter ketosis faster. MCT oil is very quickly metabolized into ketones, which instantly give energy and a feeling of "clear head".

    Sounds perfect. Are there no " pitfalls”?

    Despite the energy intensity, it is not easy to make it to lunch on only a cup of bulletproof coffee. For example, Chris Guyomali, an expert at Fast Company magazine, drank a cup of bulletproof coffee at 7 am and by 10-11 am he was intolerably hungry until he began to supplement butter coffee with liquid protein - it helped to maintain a feeling of fullness.

    Naturopathic doctor Nadia Brito Pateguana calls bulletproof coffee a "treat” and emphasizes that" fat should come primarily from food, not drinks."

    "Liquid calories" are one of the main reasons for weight gain in any diet, and although it is not easy to “overeat” on keto, some people manage to “overeat”.

    Many people drink coffee in the hope of boosting their metabolism, but excessive caffeine consumption leads to increased cortisol, the stress hormone that makes us eat more and leads to fat deposition in the abdominal area.

    Therefore, bulletproof coffee should still be considered as an emergency option if you do not have the opportunity to eat a full meal, but have time for a cup of a greasy drink, or as a pleasure that you can not afford every day.

    A classic recipe of bulletproof coffee

    Dave Asprey pays great attention to the quality of the beans – he insists on using special coffee purified from toxins and produces them under the Bulletproof brand. In fact, for bulletproof coffee, you just need good grains.

    The original recipe includes organic butter from meadow grazing cows and Brain Octane or XCT oil.

    Bulletproof coffee with coconut oil

    This recipe can also be classified as a classic: coconut oil contains fatty acids with medium chains, and it is from it that MCT oil is obtained.

    Therefore, we can replace the special additives that Dave Asprey's company offers. But with it, the drink will have a pronounced coconut aroma and taste (which is just a plus for many).

    The sequence and proportions are the same as the classic recipe, but instead of the special Brain Octane oil, coconut oil is used.

    You will need:
    • 1.5 teaspoons of coffee
    • a glass of water
    • 1 tablespoon of butter
    • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

    Composition: 412 kcal, 1.3 g protein, 41.3 g fat, 0.33 g carbohydrates

    Bulletproof coffee with ghee (melted butter)

    Ghee has no lactose, and it also has a delicate creamy-nutty taste. It's perfect for roasting and great in coffee.

    You will need:
    • 1.5 teaspoons of coffee
    • a glass of water
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil
    • 1 tbsp ghee


    Cook the coffee, add butter and beat the mixture with a blender until smooth.

    Composition: 448 kcal, 0.05 g protein, 50 g fat, 0g carbohydrates (if you use coconut oil).

    Bulletproof coffee recipe with eggs

    When Chris Guyomali complained to Dave Asprey about the rapid hunger after bulletproof coffee, bulletproof coffee's father advised him to add a raw egg to the drink. Chris didn't dare, but you can try.

    If the curdled protein in the drink does not cause an appetite, use it to make a cream.

    You will need:
    • 1.5 teaspoons of coffee
    • a glass of water
    • 1 egg
    • erythritol to taste

    STEP 1

    Separate the yolk from the protein. Make coffee in your favorite way. Add 1-2 tablespoons of butter and 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil.

    STEP 2

    whisk the yolk well. If you want you can add 1-2 tsp of erythritol, grind into powder. Add the yolk to the coffee. Use a blender to make a smooth drink.

    STEP 3

    Whisk the protein into a strong foam (to do this, add a pinch of salt and beat in a cold bowl). Add sweetener to taste.

    After all the actions, the drink will be warm, but not hot, and it is better to drink it immediately.

    You can do without protein, adding only the yolk.

    Coffee with yolk is delicious to make without butter, but with cream. And it's also interesting if you add a pinch of chili pepper.

    Composition (based on the fact that the drink contains one tbsp of oil): 482 kcal, 9 g of protein, 47.3 g of fat, 0.75 g of carbohydrates.

    If you want to try egg coffee before you start experimenting, do not hesitate to order it at the cafe, even when it is not listed on the menu. Coffee with egg yolk is easier to order than with butter.

    Bulletproof coffee recipe with olive oil

    The idea of bulletproof coffee is to get a portion of fatty acids with an average chain length with the drink.

    Olive oil has a long chain, but it is more useful than any other vegetable oils, and coffee with it turns out to taste unusual, especially with spices.

    You will need:
    • 1.5 teaspoons coffee
    • a glass of water
    • ginger root
    • 1 tbsp olive oil

    STEP 1

    Cut the ginger root into small circles. You can beat them off with a knife.

    STEP 2

    Put the coffee to boil in a Turkish coffee pot and add the chopped ginger. The less spicy the drink you want, the later you need to add ginger. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the brewed coffee. Enjoy!

    Composition: 162 kcal, 0 g protein, 18 g fat, 0 g carbohydrates.
