How to Make Delicious Great Butter Coffee at Home
By Debra Maslowski
(makes one large cup of coffee)
large cup of coffee (medium to dark roast works best)
1 Tablespoon butter or ghee (find ghee from grass-fed cows here or learn to make your own ghee)
1 Tablespoon coconut oil (find organic unrefined coconut oil here)
blender with a tight fitting lid
Note: When making butter coffee, be sure that your coffee is very hot – hot enough to melt the fats but not so hot that you burn yourself drinking it. You need to work quickly as the heat can build up in the blender and blow the lid off.
Pour the coffee into the blender.
Add the coconut oil and butter or ghee. Place the lid on top, making sure it fits tightly.
Blend at high speed until foamy. Pour back into the mug and enjoy while hot.
This recipe is light and foamy with tons of flavor on its own, but you could add sweetener and cream if you like. If you add cream, be sure it’s warm or that you add it to the blender first. If it is cold, it can harden the butter and coconut oil, creating a hard mess of cold fat. You can also add other flavors like cinnamon or chocolate, again, adding while blending is best. I like using salted butter as it adds a subtle salty taste, much like salt on dark chocolate.
And as always, if you are wanting to try any supplement for health benefits, please consult with your health practitioner. Some of these ideas still need more research and are not approved by the FDA.
Butter coffee provides a different kind of comfort drink that may benefit your body. Have you tried butter coffee?
