Bulletproof coffee has been around for a while now. I’ve tried it a few times, and while it’s ok, I don’t find that I love drinking bulletproof coffee. Then someone told me how they spice up bulletproof coffee, by adding spices like cinnamon and cloves. This intrigued me and made me want to try it. I found this great article over on the rising spoon site.
3 Ways to Spice Up Your Bulletproof Coffee
So you’ve finally discovered that blending a dollop of high-quality grass-fed butter and coconut oil into your coffee is downright amazing. That it yields a smooth, creamy, latte-like morning beverage you can’t live without. That if you drink a cup of bulletproof coffee and accidentally miss breakfast, you’re much more satiated and far less cranky.
After keeping the core recipe the same (freshly brewed coffee, grass-fed butter and coconut oil) for several months, I started throwing in different spices during the blending process.
Take your hot buttered coffee (a.k.a. bulletproof coffee) to the next level by adding in flavorings like cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, gingerbread spice, cacao powder, turmeric and more!
1. Cinnamon & Nutmeg
Throw in a few dashes of cinnamon powder and ground nutmeg to the butter and coconut oil before adding the coffee and blending. It’ll taste even better with freshly ground nutmeg, which is super easy to do if you have whole nutmeg and a microplane or zester.
2. Pumpkin Spice
After I make a blend of my homemade pumpkin spice seasoning for pumpkin lattes and pumpkin-apple harvest muffins, I use the leftovers in my bulletproof coffee! I either add it to the butter and coconut milk before blending or into the coffee grounds before brewing.
3. Turmeric & Ginger
I love sprinkling my pan-fried veggies and pastured eggs with turmeric and black pepper in the morning. Turmeric is well known for its inflammation-fighting properties and when paired with other healthy spices like black pepper and ginger (found in the popular drink called “golden milk”) it’s a powerhouse for your body.
