My Morning Cup of Java

Every morning for the past three months I’ve been starting my day with a (semi) Bulletproof Coffee. (I say semi because I'm not actually using Upgraded Coffee) I have mentioned before that I’m not a breakfast person so this has really worked for me. It keeps me till noon. I don’t feel hungry and am not grumpy.

I’ve been adding different things to my coffee like cacao butter. Yum! I alternate between the good, yummy, fats: butter from grassfed cows, coconut oil, organic-raw cocoa butter. So one day I may add two tablespoons coconut oil and about 5 cocoa butter chips. Another day I’ll add coconut oil and butter.
Bulletproof Coffee
Right now I’m adding, cough, cough, um, Target brand cream. I made a batch of frosting that didn’t come out right. Instead of wasting it I am adding it to my coffee. It’s made of raw cacao powder, coconut oil, heavy whipping cream, stevia, and vanilla. The recipe called for 1/2 tsp of chocolate stevia. I knew I should not put that much but the recipe said . . . well sure enough it was stevia overdose!

I didn’t want to waste it because I used my raw cacao powder and Tropical Traditions coconut oil. Those cost a pretty penny. 

I bought cocoa butter 9 months ago and just started using it. I made some fat bombs with it (brain boosters) and they tasted pretty good. I used 1:1 ratio cocoa butter and coconut oil.

Next I’m going to try Upgraded Cacao Butter. I bought this for my birthday (smile). It shipped today, so I’ll have to blog about how it taste later.

With all the good heart healthy fat I’m adding to my morning cup of java, I must say it is pretty high in calories, like 500. Oh, and that included gelatin. I think that’s why I don’t get hungry. When I was making my Bulletproof Coffee with only 1tbls butter and 1tbl coconut oil, I would get hungry. By adding 2tbls of each fat has been the key for me.

To shake things up, some mornings I’ll have my Bulletproof Coffee over ice.

So how do you start your day? Do you drink Bulletproof Coffee in the morning? If so, are you tweaking it a bit (sorry Dave ‘wink, I know it’s probably no longer Bulletproof if I’m changing it up’)?


  1. I haven't been having much in the mornings. I'm not much of a breakfast person overall....for that matter, not much a morning person...hehe!

  2. I've tried to be a morning person (waking at 5 or 6) but it doesn't last long ;)
