Default Bulletproof Coffee

I saw this on another blog and had to share. I know many add Coconut Oil to their coffee, but I have never heard of butter. I tried it this morning and it was quite good.

This brought back sweet memories! When I was a kid my mother and granny would dice bread and put it in a mug, top it off with about a tablespoon of butter and a teaspoon of sugar, pour coffee over it and then add my daily dose of AD-drops. Yum!!!

My husband loves this. He does a cup with 2 tbsp of kerrygold butter every day now.

Real Yak butter tea is VERY salty.

I am not sure about the casein in the cream?

From the linked article, he recommends KerryGold or another unsalted pastured butter.

Butter does have some casein, less than heavy cream, and MUCH less than milk. I'm allergic to casein and for the most part don't have an issue with butter or reasonable amounts of heavy cream.

I know. But SALT is a big deal in Yak butter tea, considered therapeutic and helps you feel better. That's why I mentioned it. (Tastes good, too, in fact!).

I'm pro salt too. Sorry I didn't get your point about the salt earlier. If I drank coffee and were trying this bulletproof thing out, I would use salted butter.

Yak butter may be a bit hard to get a hold of!
