How to Make Bulletproof Coffee With the Blendaco Portable Blender
We love coffee and cannot function without it. If you’re a coffee lover yourself, then most likely your day only starts after you’ve had your precious cup of coffee :) Caffeine, the natural stimulant in coffee, is the one responsible for this feeling as it helps increase focus, energy levels, mental alertness and reaction time. Amazing, isn’t it?
Coffee, this natural elixir that makes us energized and ready to take on the world after just one cup, is proved to have many great health benefits. Studies have shown that moderate coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Coffee is also rich in antioxidants that protect our cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Caffeine, cafestol, chlorogenic acid (CGA) and phenols are all antioxidants found in coffee that help our bodies fight against heart disease, liver disease, cancer and premature aging.
If you want to spice up your morning coffee ritual and take things to a whole new level you could try bulletproof coffee.
What is bulletproof coffee?
Bulletproof coffee, also known as butter coffee, keto coffee or sometimes boosted coffee is a type of very energizing coffee drink made with quality fats. This high-calorie coffee drink is intended as a breakfast replacement and is meant to help keep energy levels high throughout the day and support weight loss.
This very popular coffee drink is especially recommended for people interested in the keto diet, which is all about limiting carbs and consuming high-fat foods.
Bulletproof coffee recipe
If you’re wondering how to make bulletproof coffee at home, we have an easy bulletproof recipe that you can customize according to your preferences.
You only need 3 things to prepare bulletproof coffee: coffee, healthy fat and a blender.
A classic bulletproof coffee recipe consists of freshly brewed coffee and grass-fed butter or ghee blended together in a ratio of about 1 tablespoon fat to 12 oz of coffee.
If you’re looking for a vegan bulletproof coffee recipe you can use coconut oil, MCT oil or cacao butter instead of grass-fed butter or ghee. If you don’t seem to like the taste of bulletproof coffee, you can enhance it by adding some cinnamon, cocoa or vanilla extract.
How to make bulletproof coffee with the Blendaco portable blender?
With a portable blender like Blendaco, you can quickly prepare your breakfast bulletproof coffee at home or at work. Opposed to other portable blenders that have plastic jars, the Blendaco portable blender has its jar made from strong and thick high borosilicate glass which is resistant to rapid temperature changes. Thanks to this, you can enjoy your blends hot or ice-cold.
However, even if you can use hot liquids such as hot coffee in our Blendaco portable blender, we would recommend using lukewarm coffee instead. The problem with hot liquids in enclosed spaces is that there’s always the risk of pressure building up in the jar because of the steam. To avoid causing the glass to break or the lid to blow off, it’s best to avoid using very hot liquids. If you want to use your coffee hot, it’s important to limit the amount of liquid you add to your blender, as filling the jar halfway will help lower the pressure. The safest option however is to wait until the hot liquids cool down a bit before blending.
This will help prevent any unwanted incidents. Also, keep in mind that the jar gets warm when you use warm liquids, so handle it with care.
Another important aspect of bulletproof coffee is its consistency. Some people might find the consistency of bulletproof coffee unpleasant. This can happen if the blender is not powerful enough to fully blend the bulletproof coffee ingredients into a creamy emulsion. When properly mixed, bulletproof coffee should look similar to a latte. If you want your bulletproof coffee to be fully-blended into a fine, smooth drink, you need to use a powerful portable blender. Blendaco has a 7.4V Japanese-crafted carbon steel motor and 6 stainless steel blades that can effortlessly ensure a perfectly-blended bulletproof coffee.
Bulletproof coffee health benefits
Bulletproof coffee was originally created by Dave Asprey, author of the “Bulletproof Diet”, who is also known as the “Father of Biohacking” due to his work in discovering innovative methods to enhance physical and mental performance.
Among the main health benefits promoted in association with bulletproof coffee are weight loss and improved energy and performance levels. A cup of bulletproof coffee for breakfast should suppress hunger, help activate the metabolism and provide long-lasting energy and better mental performance.
There’s a lot of discussion among nutrition experts whether bulletproof coffee actually lives up to the hype. So many celebrities and entrepreneurs swear by its benefits but is bulletproof coffee so amazing as it’s claimed to be? It’s difficult to answer this question but one thing is sure: a healthy diet is more than a miraculous drink, it’s a lifestyle based on wholesome nutrition, moderation and regular exercise.
Bulletproof coffee potential downsides
Consuming bulletproof coffee every day instead of a regular breakfast might not be a good long-term strategy. Bulletproof coffee is lacking in nutrients and you would be trading a nutritious meal for a poor substitute. If you have an average of 3 meals per day, this means that you would reduce your nutrient intake by one third.
While fatty acids are indeed crucial for our body to function properly, nutrition experts recommend sourcing these essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids from fish, nuts, seeds and vegetable oils.
On another note, a 450-calorie coffee drink that is full of saturated fat might not be good for you if you have high LDL-cholesterol levels. If this is the case, you should avoid or limit your consumption of bulletproof coffee to prevent potential cardiovascular diseases.
Moderate coffee consumption has been proven to have amazing health benefits. The natural compounds in coffee are strong antioxidants that help lower the risk of developing heart disease, liver disease and cancer.
Bulletproof coffee on the other hand is a whole new form of coffee consumption. You’re replacing breakfast with a high-calorie coffee drink, rich in quality fats that help provide long-lasting energy, suppress hunger and activate the metabolism. Take into consideration both the potential benefits and downsides of bulletproof coffee.
If you’re interested in trying bulletproof coffee to see for yourself if this super popular coffee lives up to its promise, you will need only 3 things to prepare it: coffee, healthy fat and a blender.
