Bulletproofing, a brilliant technique to ramp up your morning cuppa with added fats like butter, coconut oil, MCT oil and ghee. Creamy, delicious and full of healthy fats, this beverage will stave off hunger for hours, helping you reach your fasting goal —unlike protein and carbohydrates, fat won’t kick you out of ketosis or halt autophagy!

Bulletproofing can also be leveraged as a tool to help you lose weight, supercharge your workout, and fire up your brain cells, helping you think more clearly and faster. It is normally consumed as an alternative breakfast, to prolong fasting, but can be enjoyed with food if you’re finding it difficult to add fat to your diet.


1 teaspoon/ 1 tablespoon each of fats added




    1. Brew a cup of coffee or tea as you normally would. For coffee, I like to use the french press or aeropress method for ease of use, and flavour.
    2. Blend hot beverage with 1 teaspoon of each, butter and coconut/MCT oil, using a stick or freestanding blender, for about 15–30 seconds until it looks creamy and frothy. Begin with 1 teaspoon of each fat, and work your way up slowly to a measure you are happy with.
    3. Whisking will not achieve the same results —a blender is essential here to create a creamy beverage.
    4. Serve in your favourite cup, enjoy a sustaining and energising breakfast!
