Bulletproof Latté with Essential Oils
It was the addition of Cinnamon Bark essential oil to a home made version of Bulletproof Coffee that inspired the Bulletproof Latté.
Coffee is kind of avoided in our house. Even though we loooove it and it gives us oodles of energy (duh), we both tend to save it for when we really 'need' it.
Bulletproof coffee has gotten a lot of attention lately, with most people thinking it's pretty gross to add butter and coconut oil to their coffee... And then they try it and discover it's insanely delicious.
I'm not gonna play it down: my take on this coffee is pretty divine. With the coconut oil and ghee, I don’t get jittery and it gives me a super sharp mental focus which being ridiculously delicious. Of course I want to drink it all the time. But I don’t. Because I know I need to compensate with a TON of water to counter-affect the dehydrating effect of coffee, and I'm just not there yet. I try, and my Smart + Sassy in my water helps me drink more.
When I make coffee, I start with whole beans, and I grind them just before I’m about to brew a batch in my french press. For me, theres no other way to enjoy coffee. Ground coffee loses the majority of it’s flavour within 20 minutes, so taking the extra 30 seconds to grind them fresh ensures I truly enjoy the expensive, artisanal beans I’ve invested in. I buy mine from Victoria’s Teas & Coffees in the beautiful old town of Niagara on the Lake, because I used to live down the street and I have their frequent buyers card :)
Bulletproof Latté Ingredients
+ Fresh brewed coffee
I go for organic, fair trade varieties from a local small batch
roaster, and switch up every time I buy. Currently I’m using
Ethiopian dark roast, so yum!
+ almond milk (or whatever you use - to taste)
+ maple syrup
to taste, and can be omitted - I often omit, and other times, I like
+ 1 heaping teaspoon of organic coconut oil
+ 1 teaspoon organic ghee
this is a clarified butter - a high quality ingredient that has had
milk solids removed, so it’s only the fat/oil of the butter)
+ 1-2 drops dōTERRA Cinnamon Bark essential oil
OR dōTERRA Cassia essential oil*
* If it's your first time using dōTERRA Cinnamon Bark or Cassia internally, try a toothpick swirl to test for your own sensitivity level. I can handle 2 drops without a problem, yet my girlfriend found 1 drop was pretty tingly. Determine your own comfort level by starting with less and adding more as desired.
Bulletproof Latté Directions
Combine all of these ingredients in your blender. Whirr until you see it get frothy! How simple is that? And YUMM-OH! Oh yeah!
