Bannerproof Your Coffee...

If you're an avid coffee drinker, you may have heard of bulletproofing your coffee by now. It was designed by Dave Asprey and the basic idea is by adding healthy fats to your coffee in the morning, (via unsalted, grass fed butter and coconut oil) you will have more energy, boost your brainpower and curb hunger. So, since I live in Atlanta, which is also home to the incredibly delectable Banner Butter, I figured some taste testing was in order...

The recipe to Bannerproof Your Coffee is quite simple: Take a tablespoon of unsalted Banner Butter, a tablespoon of coconut oil and place in a blender along with your cup of hot coffee. Blend for a few seconds until frothy, then pour into a mug. Top with a sprinkling of cinnamon if you so desire and enjoy...

My niece and I also tried Banner Butter's Cinnamon, Cardamom and Ginger, which goes great with regular coffee as well as Pumpkin Spice coffee- perfect for a chilly, fall day. A sucker for flavored anything, I loved this creamy, spiced version the best. 

Thirdly, we tried a mocha version using locally made Atlanta chocolate, Xocolatl. We melted a couple tablespoons in a double broiler, added that into the blender along with the coffee, butter and coconut oil, then drizzled some extra melted chocolate atop our finished cup. Ultimately, I'm not sure if I had any more energy or brainpower than a normal cup would provide, but I did feel satiated and I did love the taste...especially when there was melted chocolate on top. 

If you're in Atlanta and wish to buy a cup rather than make your own, stop by Caveman Coffee, on the BeltLine, which is offering two versions right now: Butter Coffee (with unsalted Banner Butter) and Autumn Spice Butter Coffee (with Cinnamon, Cardamom, Ginger Banner Butter, maple syrup, vanilla and almond milk)  Yum. 

And no matter where you live, have Banner Butter delivered to your front door, here. Via Scoutmob...
