I’m a huge fan of Bulletproof coffee. If you don’t know that already, you need only to read more posts from my blog to see the multitude of articles I’ve already written about their coffee, their Brain Octane Oil and more recently their Collagen Bites (yum, yum, yummy yum!)!
My true love is their Brain Octane Oil and that’s because it absolutely, 100% helps me focus, it clears my thoughts and it gives me the energy I need to get through my incredibly hectic days!
Mayvember is leaving us and we seem to have skipped spring and slammed right into summer. So today after I finished an incredible hike with a good friend, I needed to buckle down and get to work. I knew that I needed my Bulletproof coffee because on a day like today when the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming and my schedule says I need stay inside to write, program and podcast, I desperately needed help in the “focus” area.
HOWEVER…who the heck wants a hot coffee after you’ve sweated your buns off in the hot, hot sun (don’t worry, they’re actually still there)? So, I decided to create an iced coffee version of my beloved Bulletproof Coffee. Aaaaaaand my oh my…it did NOT disappoint!
- 1.5 cups Bulletproof Coffee (Freshly brewed, hot)
- 1 Tbsp Bulletproof Ghee
- 1/2 tsp - 1Tbsp Brain Octane Oil
- 1 Tbsp Cocoa powder
- Brew your coffee, as per usual.
- Add ghee, brain octane oil and cocoa powder to your blender.
- Pour hot coffee into blender.
- Blend for at least 1 minute.
- Pour over a glass filled with ice.
- Stir & enjoy!
- You may replace the Tbsp of ghee with a 1 Tbsp of nut butter to give it a nutty coffee taste. So good. Honestly. So. Good.
Helpful (?) tip: Be sure to use LOTS of ice because iced coffee should be super, super cold, not “kinda” cold.
If you’ve yet to try Bulletproof CLICK HERE to check out their products. I don’t endorse many products, but this stuff has my full endorsement because it has quite literally changed my life (YOW!).
Finally, just a quick note on the nutrition facts: Don’t worry about the fat content. Yes, that’s a lot of fat, but this type of fat goes to your brain to be metabolized and is the quick source of brain food you need for the mental focus and energy that Bulletproof gives you. One iced coffee per day, babycakes. Just the one! Enjoy!
