A friend made me this coffee (based on a drink known as BULLETPROOF® Coffee) recently and the heavens opened up. I have no comment whatsoever on the health benefits (or lack thereof) of this coffee drink, as you can read all the different opinions online. All I can tell you is that you need to try it. Just once.

A couple of weeks ago, I was working on my new cookbook. My friend Andy was helping me prep food and get things organized, and to charge me up for what was about to become an epic day of cooking, he made me a concoction he referred to as BULLETPROOF® Coffee. He’d seen it on Jimmy Fallon or Jimmy Kimmel or one of those late night shows, and he knew I’d be interested in trying it since coffee is my life.

I took a sip. My eyes widened.

I took another sip and said, “Oh…my…gosh.”

I took another sip and cried, “WHAT IS THIS?”

And then he told me what it was. And I’ll admit, I thought it was weird. Actually, I thought it was extremely weird. And evidently, all kinds of debate exists online about the benefits (or lack thereof) of this coffee drink, a version of which is also known as BULLETPROOF® Coffee. Some people say it’s healthy. Others say it’s a fad. Some people say it will give you an energy boost like no other. Others say this is placebo.

Me? I just say it’s magical. And I’ll just leave it at that.

The craziness requires a few extremely simple steps: First, pour strong, very hot coffee into a blender.

(Note: You’re supposed to use special coffee beans for this…but I used a Keurig Starbucks French Roast K-Cup. It’s how I roll, man.)

Then grab a tablespoon of *unrefinedcoconut oil…

(Yes, I said coconut oil.)

(YES…coconut oil.)

And add it to the coffee.

Next, slice up a pat of cold butter…

(Yes, I said butter.)

(YES. BUTTER.)

And throw it in, too.

I know what you’re thinking.

Believe me, I thought the same thing, too.

This is the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen, right?

I know. I understand.

But just wait…

Until you blend it…

And the coffee, coconut oil, and butter emulsify.

You’re left with this impossibly creamy, frothy concoction.

Now, you wanna drink it while it’s warm, so immediately pour it into one of your favorite coffee cups…

And enjoy every sip!

I have made myself a few cups in the last three weeks, and while I haven’t gained any weight during this period of madness, I have determined that this isn’t something I need to be drinking every morning.

But a couple a week to enjoy a little indulgence in the middle of the day? Abso-darn-lutely! Without hesitation.
