For many people, this zero carb, zero sugar, good fat-only coffee is all that’s needed for an invigorating breakfast. The fat provides much-needed energy without any carbs or sugar to spike the blood sugar first thing in the morning. Plus, it gives your digestive system a longer break in between meals.
– Defiant Coffee Mushroom or Collagen Blend
– 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter or ghee
– 1 tablespoon MCT oil or MCT oil powder
– Heavy cream
– Liquid stevia (optional)
Brew coffee as usual. Once brewed, pour into mug, or heat safe blender, and add grass-fed butter or ghee. Grass-fed butter contains butyric acid which is anti-inflammatory and improves overall gut health. Next, add MCT oil or powder. MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are very quickly broken down by our bodies and turned into energy to fuel our brains and muscles. Use coconut based MCT oils to be more environmentally friendly. For those sensitive to oils, MCT oil powders are a great alternative. Add in heavy cream, as much as you like. The benefit of heavy cream is you get all the fat and creaminess without any carbs or sugar. For an optional dose of sweetness, I recommend liquid stevia drops. This all-natural plant-based sweetener comes in a variety of flavors.
For a more flavorful coffee, try brewing Defiant Coffee using your favorite French press. We’ve found that presses make for a more flavorful cup and will ensure that the extracts or collagen are not being filtered out. We recommend two tablespoons of ground coffee to eight ounces of water at 195 degrees, with a three-minute steep time. For an even frothier experience, blend everything in a heat safe blender.
