Buttered coffee is a weird new trend where you use butter instead of cream/milk. I normally drink it black, but I was still intrigued. There are apparently some benefits in terms of it having calories, and leaving you full, so you can use it as a meal replacement. I already normally skip breakfast and just have coffee, but I suppose some (non-caffeine induced) morning energy wouldn’t be a bad thing.
In doing my internet research before trying it (mostly figuring out how much to add), I came across the Bulletproof Executive. I’ve never heard of this before, but based on this one article, it seems pretty douchey:
“I learned about the power of butter at 18,000 feet of elevation near Mt. Kailash in Tibet. “
Wow. Anyway, add a tablespoon of butter to coffee, and there you go. You let it dissolve in, and it’s actually pretty good. Mostly just tastes like coffee with cream, but greasier. In a good way I guess?
Amy did the Whole Life Challenge once, and apparently everyone at her gym raves about this. Seems good for people who like cream, but can’t have it either due to lactose intolerance, or silly abidance due weird paleo rules. Cause you can’t have milk, but you can have butter? It’s part of the paleo thing, which still doesn’t make sense, but I digress.
Now we come to the danger. What if you let it get cold? Coffee with cream? Nothing. Coffee with butter? Floaties. Disgusting butter floaties. Which can come as a surprise to you if you are drinking out of a capped thermos. (I just did this again in a regular mug and didn’t want floaties just for the photo.)
Never do this unless you’re going to drink it all at once. Disgusting.
