Bullet proof coffee is an amped up drink which is a new craze amongst the Crossfit community and other functional fitness junkies. It's coffee with grass fed butter, instead of adding your milk and sugar. The grass fed cows produce the right fats in butter that regulate cholesterol, not add to it. It has the best ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids which helps to reduce body fat, by getting your brain, body and hormones working better. Your hormones, particularly the sex hormones are made up of fats and cholesterol. It's fuel your body needs.
Two tablespoons of grass fed cow's butter is all your need every morning to kick start your day. It won't give you the quick high, then crash, from a coffee you'd normally drink with sugar. The benefits are large. Here's the theory:
It triggers weight loss by way of ketosis, a metabolic state triggered by a lack of carbs that kicks fat-burning into overdrive; it kills annoying cravings; and it boosts cognitive function, mainlining a shining dose of mental clarity into your foggy morning sleepy head. Sounds so good doesn't it?
Let's get #nextlevel now though, and add to this wonderful mix, an even better form of fat. Some are raving about the benefits of drinking their coffee with the miracle coconut oil. This type of fat is even better because so many of us are dairy intolerant anyway. So drinking coffee like this, with essential fatty acids, will help you produce ketones which are created when your body creates energy from fat rather than carbohydrates.
The here comes the light bulb moment! What if we went one step further and used the good fats from Cocofrio ice-cream? Not only are you getting the good fats from the coconut ingredients, but the extremely tasty ice-cream alternative makes your coffee into possibly the best Bullet Proof 'Affogato' possible. It's got taste and health benefits to boot!
My favourite is the Naked Coconut flavour added to organic, chemical free coffee in the morning and even better, right before a training session.If you're feeling adventurous and want to serve a dessert that will keep the guests talking and firing all night, then add the Salted Caramel flavour for some real fun.
