I switched out my coffee for a healthier version from Organo Gold (read that story here) then I upped my game a little more and have been making Bulletproof Coffee or Bulletproof GOLD coffee as I like to call it…
Here’s my recipe for Bulletproof GOLD Coffee
1 cup of hot water
1 Organo GOLD Black coffee sachet (and why I added GOLD to the name!)
1 tsp – 1 tbsp Coconut oil
1 tsp – 1 tbsp grass-fed unsalted butter, we use KerryGold
Combine all these ingredients in a blender until frothy or use a handy electric mixer in your cup.
(The original version of bulletproof coffee was created by Dave Asprey of BulletProofExec.com)
Who might benefit from Bulletproof Gold Coffee?
If you are already drinking coffee and especially if you drink coffee in place of breakfast – then this could be a good upgrade! With the addition of Organo Gold coffee with ganoderma you’ve boosted the already awesome Bulletproof Coffee.

Drink it in the morning for energy and to boost cognitive function.
Why Coconut oil?
Coconut oil has many benefits! Here’s a list of 77 Uses by Dr. Axe
It contains MCT’s or Medium Chain Triglycerides. And according to Dr. Axe…
Medium-chain fatty acids are capable of helping you:
- Maintain a healthy weight — since they both make you feel full
- Specifically reduce stored body fat — since they also raise your metabolic function
- Have more energy
- Think more clearly
- Experience better digestion
- Balance hormone levels
- Improve your mood
- Fight bacterial infection and viruses
- Absorb fat-soluble nutrients from various foods
Why grass-fed butter?
First, be sure you have UNSALTED butter or it will not turn out! KerryGold brand butter is sold in most grocery stores and shouldn’t be hard to find.
“Grass-fed butter is much healthier than other butter,” Dave Asprey writes. “ It doesn’t make cholesterol levels worse, it optimizes them! Starting your day with grass-fed butter will give you lots of energy and it will give your body healthy fats that it will use to make cell walls and hormones.”
The nutritional value of butter is improved by the proportion of fresh grass in the diet of cows – so buy the KerryGold and skip the cheap and fake stuff.
That’s a lot of fat?!
Yes, good fat, but it is best to avoid sugars and carbs along with your cup of bulletproof coffee. Try a little vanilla and stevia if you need a little sweetness.
(I’m still trying to find an alternative to chocolate syrup 🙂 but that might be a story for another day!)
Because of the fat content, it is best to drink the coffee by itself and not have it with a heavy meal….like say, biscuits and gravy.
Not a coffee drinker?
Then try it with Young Living Slique Tea!
Heat one cup of water and let your tea steep for a few minutes (per directions).
Then add up to a tablespoon of Coconut oil and grass-fed butter and blend.
If you’d like try it with a drop or two of your favorite citrus oil like Lemon Vitality.
I know if might sound odd or even a little gross – but it’s not – just be sure to blend so it gets nice and frothy!
*Don’t skip blending or your lips will be greasy and gross!
