Bulletproof Coffee – a Banting Joburger’s Dream

Bulletproof Coffee – a Banting Joburger’s Dream

I start the day with a cuppa of bulletproof coffee.

Three reasons:

  1. I love coffee
  2. I heart butter
  3. I live in Joburg

 Please note number 3 is a joke, although the coffee will make you feel invincible, DO NOT try stop a bullet with your body.


But the real Why?

Helps you burn fat, Powerful consistent energy throughout the day, No crashes, Rock steady focus, Nutrient dense – and just to BE BETTER.

The What?

  • Awesome coffee – hit us up at www.aquaspresso.co.za
  • Unsalted grass fed butter – this is very important, even die-hard coffee lovers will find salty coffee yucky. An alternative to butter would be Ghee, Paleo People swear by it.
  • MCT oil or Coconut Oil – I prefer coconuts, because they are cool, opposed to uhm Medium Chain Triglycerides. In essence, they are the same, there is a bit of science behind it, but a coffee blog is not the place.

The How?

  1. Make coffee, any which way will do, but a French Press or an Espresso Machine would be preferable – hit us up again.
  2. Pour into blender
  3. Add 1-2 tbs of your butter
  4. Add 1-2 tbs of your oil
  5. Blend away.
  6. Spice it up – I would never, being a boring coffee purist – but feel free to add cinnamon, chai or some dark decadent chocolate flakes.
  7. Drink your cup and be awesome. 
  8. Have an inside chuckle at all the people who ate grains and twigs for breakfast, as you overtake them on the highway of life.

Some interesting points and the benefits of the individual ingredients.

  • Coffee – Loaded with antioxidants, may lower risks of type II diabetes, may protect you from Alzheimer`s and Dementia , Lower risk of certain cancers. Coffee drinkers are Happy.
  • Grassfed butter – Raise the good cholesterol, Lower the bad one. Has vitamin K2 in it which decalcifies your arteries (a very good thing). Loaded with anti-inflammatory properties,  which in turn lowers heart risk.
  • Coconut Oil – burns fat(the bad kind), the acid in the oil kills bacteria, viruses and fungi meaning less infections, lower risk of heart disease, boost brain function ( I took some before writing this what more proof do you want) .

Now go be Bulletproof, unless you can be Batman, then always be Batman.
