Haven’t heard of Bullet Proof Coffee? The concept of Bulletproof coffee is really quite simple. You add healthy fat to your organic coffee and blend it like crazy!
It is calorie dense and satiating, and can fuel your body and brain for hours.
Many cultures, such as the Ethiopians and Tibetans, have been drinking “Buttered coffee” or “Yak Butter Tea” long before the Keto and Paleo crowd got their hands on it. Dave Asprey, was exposed to the concept in 2009 while hiking in Tibet. He brought back the basic recipe and has marketed and developed it into what we know today as “Bulletproof coffee”.

Why add oils and CBD to your coffee?
Adding CBD to your coffee is a great way to take in your CBD oil in the morning. You are probably already enjoying both so putting them together makes a lot of sense! However adding this much FAT to your coffee is likely a new concept for you. The fat provides satiety and helps curb cravings through out the day.
It is a good idea to start off with a small amount of butter and work your way up to the full amount as not everyone can handle 2 tablespoons right away. Your tummy will tell you if it is too much.
You can also vary the recipe by adding in tumeric, vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate or other flavours that bring you joy!
The fat together with the caffeine from the coffee will give you a boost of energy to start your day.
