I’ve been reading up on Bulletproof coffee lately. I heard about it for the first time earlier this year and never gave it a try because generally I try to stay away from coffee (even though it’s so hard!) due to caffeine negatively affecting my rosacea acne.
Instead I’ve been blending pastured butter in my morning tea. Until now.
Bulletproof Hot Cacao. Not Hershey’s powdered cocoa, but raw cacao from Navitas Naturals (Whole Foods).
This creamy hot drink is perfect in the morning. I try to stay away from it at night (which is generally when I drink hot cocoa) because raw cacao has a lot of caffeine. I made the mistake of drinking this before bed one evening and spent the whole night wired thinking about ways I could change my life, and how I was going to work out and be super fit and educated and awesome.
Disclaimer: I know Dave from Bulletproofexec.com has written a post about the warnings of fake Bulletproof coffee. He claims that all coffee beans are not created equal, and that the use of MCT oil for maximized energy is a key element in his recipe (both of which I totally agree with.) So even though this Hot Cacao recipe is NOT technically “Bulletproof”, it still tastes delicious while maintaining some of the health benefits associated with drinking good healthy fats.
