Brain Booster Recipe
Everyone knows how much I love coffee, so I wanted to share my absolute favorite coffee drink that has ZERO sugar added and tastes amazing and is even good for you!
This recipe is a different version of the famous Bulletproof Coffee from Dave Asprey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YjLMdx3YZY
In my version, I use a few added ingredients that make it even more healthy and can even be used as a brain booster by adding collagen and essential oils. I will not be getting into the positives and negatives of coffee itself. There are equal amounts of research for and against coffee. It is all how you use it and its source (meaning not too much and organic beans).
I drink this before any kind of long, slow aerobic training or if I need to be super focused working on the computer, writing blogs or training plans. It totally fills me up and gets all my brain power firing with all the fat. Please do not add any sugar to this recipe because you will be defeating the purpose of teaching your body to burn fat for fuel.
I love a french press to make coffee. You actually get more caffeine from your coffee when you use a french press. I use only organic coffee beans because coffee is very heavily sprayed with pesticides and I do not need any of those chemicals in my body.
Warning this drink is addicting.
In a blender or Bullet I combine all my ingredients
1-2 cups of organic french pressed coffee
2 Tablespoons grass fed ghee or butter KerryGold Unsalted Grass Fed butter
1 Tablespoon Organic MCT Oil
1 Scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
1 Teaspoon of Organic Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon Maca Root powder
1 Teaspoon Organic Cacao Powder
1-2 Drops of *Doterra Cinnamon or*Peppermint Essential Oil
While the coffee steeps in the French press for 4-7 minutes add these ingredients to a blender; butter, MCT oil, collagen.
When the coffee is ready add the coffee and blend on high for 20 seconds, Pour into your mug and then add 2-3 drops of your choice of either *cinnamon or *peppermint essential oils. I switch it up all the time depending on my mood. Enjoy!
