Quick Winter Morning Bulletproof Coffee

BonBon Break

I have heard about this for years, Bulletproof Coffee. You make your perfect cup of coffee and then you drop butter and oil in it… WHAT?! Seriously, on a tired morning with my head in a complete fog, I did just that and needless to say, I got it completely wrong.

Then it came up again and the coffee fanatic in the house said, “Let’s give it a go!” Low and behold we played with the idea and BLENDING it is key. As in, don’t just drop it in your cuppa joe and expect a miracle.

This recipe for Winter Morning Bulletproof Coffee will make two standard cups of coffee – or for my lovely partner, half a “cup”.


No worries if you don’t have a French Press! You can simply use 10 oz of fresh brewed coffee from a drip maker or coffee pod and pour that right into your blender! (The blender is important for Bulletproof Coffee as it will help whip everything together, fully incorporating the flavors and frothing everything up.

  • 10oz really hot water (straight from your electric tea kettle is best!)
  • ¼ cup whole coffee beans (or about 3.5 tablespoons ground coffee)
  • ¾ cup cream or coffee creamer of your choice (for a vegan option, I find the Silk Almond Creamer Vanilla is a perfect fit)
  • 1.5 tablespoons unsalted organic butter or vegan butter (I like Earth Balance’s European Style 
  • 1 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil

If you need a French Press, this is a newer model of the one used here.
