I used coconut oil for years before actually moving over to MCT oil, and to be honest I don’t feel much of a difference. So just get your Medium-chain Triglycerides from one of those two sources and you are good to go!
Last and this is the one that people usually say WTF to, is butter. Specifically organic grass-fed unsalted butter, Kerrygold is what I use. Yes, I put butter in my coffee, no it is not disgusting. This is the ultimate healthy fat, which your body is needing bigtime, especially first thing in the morning. 1-2 TBS added to your coffee is enough to start, but you might find that you would like more, just be easy and play with your tolerance level. On days that I am fasting I have as much as 6-8 TBS in my morning mug, depending on the length of the fast, other days is usually only 3 TBS.
Those are the ingredients we need and here’s my advice on how to make it.
Get yourself a good coffee bean grinder, preferably a burr grinder. Grind your beans fresh (coarse) right before you brew them, makes for fresher and better tasting coffee in my opinion.
French Press that shit. This is new for me, but I will never go back to drip coffee makers. Your coffee will taste better, will be stronger, and who the hell doesn’t want stronger coffee????
Get a blender, whatever you have will probably work just watch out for those damn Ninja to-go blender cups. Some blenders do not work well with hot liquids as it breaks the seal and sprays everywhere.
Toss your butter, some MCT or coconut oil in, 2-3 cups of your clean freshly brewed from your awesome french press coffee, and blend it up until you get a nice frothy top.
Drink it, love it, rage, take over the world, be awesome.
