Take your morning coffee to the next level with my Dairy-Free Bulletproof Coffee. I promise, you will be surprise for its power and of course the taste!
Couple of weeks ago I tried my very first bulletproof coffee and my mind was like: Where has this been all my life??! The creamiest, most delicious coffee I ever had.
What is Bulletproof Coffee?
To put it in plain English Bulletproof coffee is coffee + high quality fat all blended until creamy. The purpose of bulletproof coffee is to make it filling, so that you sip it first thing in the morning and keep the hunger at bay. I love it before my early morning run followed by breakfast after my run. This is not to replace breakfast 🙂 Most recipes use butter, ghee, collagen or heavy cream and artificial sweeteners. My recipe is with MCT oil, cinnamon, touch of turmeric and almond milk.
I have never had MCT ( medium-chain triglyceride oil), until Coconut Merchant has kindly sent me their MCT oil to try. For my American followers try this Sport Research 100% Pure MCT Oil has been recommended to me as well.
Here is what Coconut Merchant say about their MCT oil:
"Our MCT Oil is perfect for those looking for a healthier lifestyle. Being high in C8 helps to increase energy, boost metabolism, make your thinking smart and your workout even smarter.Highly versatile, this can be blended into coffees, smoothies and protein shakes. It can also be used in cooking, for frying or even as part of a salad dressing. As always, we keep our promise to make sure our MCT Oil is totally natural, preservative free, ethically sourced, and 100% awesome – just like you"
I have had this for the last 2 weeks before my runs and I can confirm it does make a difference. I feel stronger and not completely gassed at the end of my runs, so really pleased with it.
