Default How to Make ****er or Bulletproof® Style Coffee

You've probably seen ****er or bulletproof-style coffee sold in upscale coffee shops. If you can get your hands on high-quality ingredients, it's easy to make this nutritious beverage at home. Brew a cup of black coffee and blend it with MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil and grass-fed ****er. This creates a drink that's creamy, filling, and energizing.

  • of water
  • 2 ½ heaping tablespoons (15 g) of ground coffee
  • of MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil or high-quality coconut oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons (14 to 28 g) of unsalted organic, grass-fed ****er
Makes 1 serving


EditMaking Original Bulletproof-Style Coffee
  1. Brew the ground coffee with the water. You can use your favorite brewing method, such as a French press, drip coffee machine, or pour over. For the best cup of coffee use 2 ½ heaping tablespoons (15 g) of ground coffee for of water.[1]

    • If you'd like to keep the natural oils from the coffee instead of filtering them out, use the French press to brew the coffee.
  2. Pour the coffee into a blender along with MCT oil and ****er. Once the coffee is brewed, pour it while it's hot into a blender. Add of MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil and 1 to 2 tablespoons (14 to 28 g) of organic, grass-fed ****er.[2]
    • If you're just starting to drink bulletproof-style coffee, start with the lesser amounts of MCT oil and grass-fed ****er. This can help you adjust to the taste and determine how the brew affects your body.
  3. Cover and blend the mixture for 20 to 30 seconds. Put the lid on the blender and turn it on to blend until the ****er is dissolved. The coffee should now look creamy brown instead of black and there should be a layer of foam at the top.[3]
    • It's important to blend the bulletproof-style coffee in order to completely incorporate the oil and ****er. If you only stir the coffee, the fats will separate which will make the drink taste oily.
  4. Pour the bulletproof-style coffee into a mug. Remove the lid from the blender and slowly pour the hot mixture into a coffee mug. Sip the drink while it's still hot to enjoy the best texture.[4]

    • If you have leftover bulletproof-style coffee, cover and refrigerate it for up to 1 day. Although you can drink it cold or hot, you should blend it again just before drinking to improve the texture.
EditTrying Variations
  1. Use chai tea instead of coffee for a different flavor. If you don't like the flavor of coffee or want to consume less caffeine, make a cup of your favorite chai or herbal tea. For example, you could also use rooibos or green tea.[5]
    • For a decadent drink, make a cup of hot cocoa and make it bulletproof-style by blending in the MCT oil and ****er.
  2. Substitute coconut oil for the MCT oil. If you can't find MCT oil, use high-quality organic coconut oil. Although the MCT oil is usually included to make you feel more energized, coconut oil is easier to find and it contains beneficial fatty acids.[6]
    • If you'd also like to substitute the grass-fed ****er, use 1 to 2 teaspoons (3 to 6 g) of ghee instead of the ****er.
  3. Add collagen to make a thicker drink. To get even more protein in the bulletproof-style coffee, put 1 to 2 tablespoons (7 to 14 g) of collagen powder in the blender with the other ingredients. Blend until the powder is dissolved.[7]
    • Collagen is a good supplement for repairing damaged skin and keeping your joints healthy.
  4. Mix in mushroom powder for additional antioxidants. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons (2 to 4 g) of dried mushroom powder when you blend the bulletproof-style coffee. The antioxidants in the mushroom powder may improve your immune system and make you feel less fatigued.[8]
    • Purchase high-quality mushroom supplements from local health food stores or vitamin supplement stores.
  5. Include cinnamon and salt for a spiced drink. If you enjoy flavored coffee, try blending in 1/4 of a teaspoon of pink salt and 1/2 teaspoon (1 g) of ground cinnamon. You can also try adding up to 1/2 teaspoon (1 g) of your favorite spices, such as:[9]

    • Ground nutmeg
    • Pumpkin pie spice
    • Mixed spice
    • Gingerbread spice
  • If you don't have a blender, you can use an immersion blender. Keep in mind that the coffee may not have as creamy of a texture.
  • If you are watching your cholesterol, limit the amount of bulletproof-style coffee you consume on a regular basis since it can significantly raise your cholesterol levels.[10]
  • Always talk with your doctor before replacing a meal with bulletproof-style coffee. This beverage is not a replacement for a nutritious meal that's part of a balanced diet.
EditThings You'll Need
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Coffee brewer
