Bulletproof Coffee

Bulletproof Coffee - Reallifeofpie

Bulletproof coffee is a health craze sneaking into everyday kitchens and coffee shops around the world. In essence, it’s a combination of black coffee, grass-fed butter, and brain octane oil. I’ll be honest, my first reaction to Bulletproof coffee was *Blerg*, I honestly thought why would you ruin a perfect cup of coffee with all that fat!?!? But after trying it for myself and noticing the difference to my health and energy levels through the day, I was immediately converted. This recipe is the creamiest, most divine way to have your morning cup of Jo that gives you long lasting energy all day long. You can read more about the bio-hacking trend - Bulletproof Coffee + the benefits of it here
