Two Ingredients You Need to Add to Your Bulletproof Coffee

Nutrition and RecipesAnnie CannonComment

If you haven’t tried bulletproof coffee yet, you are missing out. It’s a creamy, delicious, breakfast replacement morning delight, great to keep you in the fat-burning zone until lunch.

My typical recipe is as follows:

  • 20 oz brewed coffee (or matcha!)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk
  • 2 tsp xylitol
  • sometimes I’ll add 1 tsp vanilla
  • blend for 10 seconds and enjoy

But once in a while, a great idea comes along that you just have to try...

Ingredient #1: Cinnamon

I don’t mean a little cinnamon sprinkled on top. I mean a solid 1/2 teaspoon added in with the coffee grounds to be brewed. It leaves the finished product with that great cinnamon aroma, without the sludgy bits on top.

Ingredient #2: Hemp seed

Hemp seed is high in omega-3 fatty acids and protein, low in carbs, and decreases the hunger hormone ghrelin. Add 1 tbsp to your coffee and blend on a higher speed than usual for bulletproof coffee to break up the seeds.

It seems like a weird thing to blend into your coffee but it makes it even creamier and noticeably more satiating. Sure there will be about a cm of hemp seed bits at the bottom of your mug when you are done but I just drink that too!

I hope you will give these ideas a try and let me know how it goes! And please tell me any other amazing ideas you have to dress up a bulletproof coffee!
