The idea of bulletproof coffee came into being from a traveller experiencing the rejuvenating effect of yak butter tea in Tibet. In our quest to get more healthy fats into our diets, we could try bulletproof coffee. Devotees have their coffee blended with 1-2 tablespoons of butter and 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil. I tried it with a toned down version of 1 dessertspoon of butter and 1 dessertspoon of coconut oil blended into hot coffee and had to admit that it was delicious, if unusual. Another variation is one dessertspoon of coconut oil stirred into hot green tea – again unusual but palatable. I imagine it is a taste that grows with familiarity.
