When your alarm goes off, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
…besides swatting the alarm off of the night stand, that is. If you’re anything like us, there’s only one thing on your mind: “coffee!”
Whether you brew your daily dose of coffee at home or make a coffee shop stop each day, chances are you have your preference down pat.
Do you take your coffee black? Add a little cream or sugar? Maybe you prefer an Americano or espresso. Cool, you can have whatever you like. Even if that means putting butter in your coffee.
Wait. What? Butter. Like, butter, from the “stick of” variety?
That’s a big (healthy) fat yes. It’s a crazy sounding concoction best known as Bulletproof Coffee. Basically, that’s coffee spiked with the unusual combination of grass-fed, unsalted butter and coconut oil (or its more concentrated cousin, MCT oil). And it’s all the rage these days. Because, word on the street is, it gives you superpowers.
To create the Clark Kent, Salud transforms your average Americano into supercharged beverage by adding coconut oil and grass-fed butter. Flax or hemp seed can be mixed in for some added health benefits too. Once all of the ingredients are in, this bad boy is blended up, creating a frothy, latte-like beverage that’s said to be delicious and nutritious.
But we’ll let you be the judge of that.
