Butter Coffee

Have you guys heard of bulletproof coffee (or butter coffee)? Boyfriend has recently started using it.





Apparently blending is key to making it look like a real coffee and not black gunk with oil sitting on it. 




Don't stand between me and my breakfast. 




Boyfriend swears it's delicious, but I'm skeptical. Have you guys tried it? Or would you?

  1. That sounds like a lot of work. Is this a diet thing? I thought breakfast was essential for kickstarting your metabolism? Also, and I'm sorry to be the one to bring this up, but butter coffee has to wreck your colon.

  2. Actually, you both are right. I'm with Pickleope... breakfast is important for kickstarting your metabolism. So you should have some buttered grass-eating oil coffee WITH your Fruit Loops for best effects. Or maybe an egg white and oatmeal. Whatever.

  3. Folgers??!! You mean a container of artificial granules that when hot water is poured over them, create a brown watery mix that tastes a little bit like it might have been coffee a decade ago? The Kool-Aid of coffee? Bleah. And Fruit Loops. Holy sugar batman! I thought you were trying to save money? That shit is both very expensive and very bad for you. I'm a little bit dubious about the butter coffee, but the way boyfriend is going about it, at least it's healthier than your "breakfast". Though I have no idea what MCT oil is. Dubious about that.

  4. This sounds like a lot of work for something that would appear to taste like sludge. And I can't eat breakfast with it? Cluck no.

  5. Reminds me of a story (what doesn't?)....when I was flying with the Navy in Spain (our Navy, not theirs), one of our crew took it upon himself to flavor our coffee by dropping a tasty treat in the grounds. Part of our mission brief included a statement from him, such as, "For tonight's mission, we have 'Fudge Nut Brownie' coffee." or "...we have Snickers coffee." or "...cinnamon granola coffee."
    But, things started getting hinky when he announced we were to have "....Juicy Fruit coffee."
    We banned him from the coffee pot after "Tonight we will be having chicken bone coffee."

  7. This sounds disgusting.

    You should instead just try the Gloria Jean's Butter Toffee flavored k-cup! Compromise right there.

    is this some kind of weird ass paleo or cross fit thing? those nuts are like the new vegans.

  8. A friend posted about this a few days back complete with picture like I want to see that kind of abuse. The logic doesn't make sense - like how does a pat of grease stick around helping you feel fuller longer? I would believe it more if they said it helped digestion or some crap like that. Pat of butter a day keeps the doctor away? I'd rather have it on toast, thank you

  9. I haven't heard of it, and wouldn't try it. I'm not really a coffee person. I have chocolate milk for breakfast everyday. I used to have graham crackers, too, but I gave them up for Lent and never reinstated them.

    Love,

  11. My day doesn't start until I've had a ginormous cup of super strong coffee, but this butter/engine oil/coffee thing you speak of sounds freaking awful.

  12. Have read this twice now, and it still doesn't make sense. Coffee? Butter? Unless its on my toast, no thanks.

  13. This has made me think about eating healthier. Do you know where I can get grass fed Fruit Loops?

  17. I can only think of a slimy film swirling about on the top of the coffee that then slicks up my lips as I try to sip...

    Ew. Pass the cereal!

  18. I saw a thing on the news last week about putting butter in black coffee and drinking it for the health benefits. Umm what? No. I need milk and sugar in my coffee and that's it. Ok, maybe some Kaluha or whiskey but no butter!

  19. You must have a proper breakfast to kick start your day avoid doing butter coffee as break fast.

    Thanks
