It’s the new POWER drink that everyone’s raving about – especially people following the LCHF (low-carb high-fat) eating plan Pass of Exile. But what is it?
Bulletproof coffee is based on the concept of Tibetan yak-butter tea – a rich and creamy concoction that’s popular in the high altitude region.
Since first trying yak-butter tea back in 2004, Dave Asprey spent years trying to replicate the drink. And after much experimenting, his blend of low-toxin coffee, 1-2 tablespoons of unsalted butter (preferably grass-fed, and you can use up to 6 tablespoons), and 1-2 tablespoons of medium-chain triglyceride oil (a replacement for coconut oil otherwise your coffee might taste tropical) – hit the nail on the head. He called his new drink, which packs around 460 calories per cup, “bulletproof coffee”.
Asprey suggests drinking it as a replacement for breakfast, and swears that it reduces cravings and promotes weight loss by triggering ketosis. Since he first posted the unusual recipe on his blog, it’s become an incredibly popular morning drink of choice for many people.
