You may have heard that this recipe, sometimes referred to as “bulletproof coffee,” has the ability to burn fat extra hard and give you some sort of magical powers. That’s all marketing hype, unfortunately. Coffee with fat in it is delicious and can hold you over until lunchtime or beyond, but that’s all it is: coffee with fat in it. Don’t fall for the hype and spend extra on branded bulletproof coffee, butter or anything else with that much nonsense marketing behind it.


2 cups strong coffee
½ tsp. cardamom
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tbsp. heavy whipping cream


Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until frothy and decadent, and drink.

Tip: If you enjoy this recipe and think you’ll make it often, I recommend getting an ice tray and freezing your butter and coconut oil into cubes. This makes them easier to handle and provides the added benefit of cooling your coffee down to a reasonable drinking temperature faster.
