Gingerbread Spiced Bulletproof Coffee, via Stupid Easy Paleo

  •     1 teaspoon gingerbread spice mix (visit site for recipe) per 2 rounded Tablespoons of coffee grounds
  •     1 Tablespoon of grass-fed butter or ghee
  •     1 Tablespoon of coconut oil or MCT oil
  •     Optional: sweetener (like raw honey)

(makes 2 cups)


  1. Sprinkle the gingerbread spice mix into the coffee grounds. Brew the coffee using your preferred method (I use a French press but any preparation will do).
  2. Pour hot coffee into a blender. Add the grass-fed butter and coconut oil, plus any extras like sweetener if preferred.
  3. Blend for 30 seconds until frothy and creamy (use caution when using a blender with hot liquids). You could also use an immersion blender or just melt the butter and oil on top of your hot coffee, but I don’t prefer it that way…it ends up like an oil slick. If that’s your thing though, that’s okay.
  4. Sprinkle with extra gingerbread spice, if desired.
