I love coffee. Like I would seriously jump in front of a semi truck for it. Coffee and I have an amazing relationship. We have spent many a night together, lots of mornings and when I am feeling down in the afternoon, coffee is there to pick me right back up. Our relationship is a “The Notebook” level romance.
When Julianne (founder of GOF, fellow blogger and foodie extraordinaire) asked if I would sample some amazing coffee, that she was already in love with, I jumped at the chance. So she sent me this lovely little treat.
Scotty D’s Jamaican Coffee. I made my first cup and drank it black. I really wanted to taste all the notes. It is a delicious medium roast coffee that is both nutty and sweet (like me). I had enough left for another cup and I wanted to make our time together memorable so I decided to pull out all the stops. I went to bed that night thinking about what I could do with my last cup of Scotty D’s. When I woke up that morning it hit me! I knew what I was gonna do. I went to the fridge and got out my full fat butter. Then over to the pantry for my organic coconut oil and went to town. What happened next was magical. The perfect cup of bullet proof coffee.
How do you make the perfect cup of bulletproof coffee you ask? Well first you brew up some Scotty D’s 100% Jamaican coffee. Pour your coffee, very carefully (it is freaking hot, remember?) into your blender (I use a Ninja, if I had an immersion blender I would use that instead), with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. I added a pinch of stevia to sweeten it up just a bit. Hit blend or in my case, pulse it until it is frothy on top, pour into your mug and enjoy.
If you’re looking for a high quality coffee machine I can’t recommend the Ninja Coffee Bar range enough. Not sure which model to go for? Take a look at the Full Moon Cafe website for some detailed reviews to help make your decision a little easier.
I usually like to drink my bulletproof coffee before I hit the gym. The reason is, it keeps me full for the duration of my workout and it is chocked full of healthy fats. However; this particular instance I was on vacation and enjoyed sipping it in my adult onsie. I put some make up on for the pictures, you’re welcome.
Enjoy and let me know what you think of bulletproof coffee. Oh and head on over to Scotty D’s website and check out his yumminess!
