• Q: What is Bulletproof Coffee (BPC)?

    A: “It is basically coffee blended with a bit of butter and coconut oil. It sounds very odd, but it is very delicious and becomes a creamy drink when the ingredients emulsify – apparently its amazing for energy in the mornings.”

    Q: So what’s your experience with BPC?

    A: “I’ve only seen it on overseas blogs and sites (haven’t tried it yet), but it’s the new big thing in SA, seeing as everyone is .doing high-fat/low-carb (which we all know to be banting).”

    Q: Do you think you’ll try it soon?

    A: “Yes, I found this basic recipe that I’d like to give a bash.

    1. In a blender (or using a stick blender), combine 250ml (1 cup coffee), 5g butter, 1,25ml (1/4 tsp) vanilla extract and 45ml (3 tbsp) coconut oil.
    2. Blend until creamy and frothy, and drink immediately.”
