How to make a fat, Bulletproof Coffee with Coconut MCT and Collagen Protein
What is fat butter coffee?
Fat butter coffee is exactly what it sounds like - Butter added into the coffee. By adding butter into your coffee not only are you increasing the good fat content, it makes the coffee creamy and delicious too.
Can you make Bulletproof (Evolve) coffee dairy-free?
You can make this coffee dairy-free, by switching the butter for regular extra virgin coconut oil as well as the MCT coconut oil.
What is collagen coffee?
Collagen coffee is coffee which is blended with collagen peptide protein powder. Our Collagen is unflavoured, so does not alter the taste of the coffee at all. If taken daily collagen supports your gut health, skin, hair and nail strength too.
What is Medium Chain Triglyceride Oil (MCT)?
Medium Chain Triglyceride is the long name for MCT oil. It's a medium-chain fatty acid that is derived from the coconut. Hunter & Gather MCT oil is 100% coconut and is triple steam distilled - no palm or rapeseed oils is used. MCT's are rapidly converted by the liver into ketones and are key for those following a keto lifestyle. Check out more information in our blog post here.
