Jumpstart Your Morning with this Bulletproof Mocha Recipe
Bulletproof coffee is just what you need on Winter mornings. We make ours a Bulletproof MOCHA with Sugar Free Sinless Syrups. Delish.
Bulletproof coffee was buzzworthy a few years ago. In case you forgot, this surprise trend is based on adding grass-fed butter to your morning Joe. The idea behind it is that if you are already in Ketosis (burning fat for fuel v. glucose), adding fat to caffeine will deliver a bigger boost of energy and leave you feeling full(er) for long(er).
One of the best outcomes of the low-carb diet trend is the realization that dietary fat isn’t all bad. In fact, our bodies and minds work SO much better when we include regular servings of healthy fats. Why? Well, for starters, fat is delicious and it helps us feel rewarded. Even more importantly,
"Fat helps give your body energy, protects your organs, supports cell growth, keeps cholesterol and blood pressure under control, and helps your body absorb vital nutrients. When you focus too much on cutting out all fat, you can actually deprive your body of what it needs most."
Harvard Health, “Know the Facts about Fats”, 2021(1)
We know what you’re thinking… “butter = bad” has been drilled into our subconscious for decades. It is calorie dense, meaning a small amount still carries a lot of calories. It is high in cholesterol, which means it might not be a good choice for someone experiencing high cholesterol or heart disease.
But stay with us for a minute. We aren’t talking about man-made margarine or any old butter off the shelf. Bulletproof Mocha calls for grass-fed butter. Grass-fed butter is better butter. Cows that eat grass produce milk and milk products - like BUTTER - that contain so much more of the vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that our bodies need to function well. In addition to helping us fight disease and cell degeneration, some of those vitamins, minerals and fatty acids can also help with things like digestive health, insulin sensitivity, and reduced inflammation.(2)
For this recipe, we also included a bonus fat - MCT oil.
WHAT IS MCT OIL?
MCT oil is a supplement made from coconut or palm kernel oil, a type of fat called medium-chain triglycerides. MCT molecules are smaller (medium-chain triglycerides) than most dietary fats (long-chain triglycerides [LCT]), making them easier to digest. MCT is absorbed into the bloodstream quickly for energy use and easily for better gut health. (6)
WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF MCT OIL?
- Increase Energy
- Weight Loss
- Gut Health
- Feelings of Fullness
- Reduction of Lactate Buildup
- Improved Memory & Brain Function
- Heart Health
IS MCT OIL SAFE FOR EVERYONE?
If you are pregnant/breastfeeding or have diabetes or liver disease, experts say MCT oil may not be safe for you. Consult your doctor before use. (8)
