Happy New Year to you all!
Yes, I know it is now the second week into the new year!
Ha! Better late than never, is my motto.
December just flew by and now we are in the
new year with new adventures and new things to try.
Plus my hubby and I will celebrate our
21st Anniversary this week!
I was told the other day that I didn't look my age.
What a nice compliment! I'm gonna hold onto that,
when I'm feeling my age and outta sort.
It's so nice to receive such a nice compliment
from a complete stranger, isn't it?
Any who, I had a reason why I needed to do a blog post,
other than the fact to show you I am still around!
Blogging seems to be getting harder and harder to do for some reason.
I don't want it to feel like a chore, you know?
But, I'm here and I promise to come visit soon!
Okay, now onto my post....
Have you ever tried Bulletproof Coffee??
Oh my...if you haven't, you need to!
It is SO GOOD!
And GOOD for you!
So, this is what they look like after you make up a batch.
One batch makes about 48 discs.
I have been trying the Trim Healthy Mama
way of eating since Christmas
and at first I was like, I don't think I can do this.
But then, once I eliminated all the white stuff out of my diet,
(white as in potatoes, rice, flour and regular white sugar)
I started feeling good.
Like I had energy again! Yahoo!
When doing the Trim Healthy Mama,
they get you off of the bad sugars.
You start using the good sugars like Stevia, Xylitol, their brand of
Gentle Sweet and Super Sweet Blends.
Any who, that took some getting used to.
When you are used to having everything super sweet
and then you switch to something kinda sweet, it was like... yuck!
Coffee was my hardest challenge, because
I love all the flavored coffee creamers!
So, I tried to create a few different flavors of my own...
I didn't like them at all!
Onto Plan B... Or C or D...Ha!
So, then I started googling and finding out what I could try next.
And that's when I found this recipe for Bulletproof Coffee.
Jackpot! These little discs are delicious!
Now, don't be shocked by whats in them.
You need to have the healthy fats in your diet.
Research it and see what you think!
And, I think you should at least try them once...
Bulletproof Coffee Discs
3/4 cups butter
1 1/2 cups coconut oil
5 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. stevia or another natural sweetener
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
In a bowl, melt the butter and coconut oil in a
microwave safe bowl.
Stir. Once fully melted,
add in the cocoa powder, stevia and vanilla.
And stir again.
Pour into two 24 cup mini muffin pans
or 4 ice cube trays.
Freeze until set.
Once frozen pop out of tins or trays and store in a baggie
until your next cup of coffee.
Brew your coffee like you normally do, pop one
bulletproof disc into your cup,
add your creamer of choice and a bit more sweetener if desired.
Stir and enjoy!!
* The first time I had it, I was surprised at the oil
that that floated to the top,
but after I tasted it, Yum!
I'm not ever going back
to store bought creamers, it's that good!
I just stir a few times as I drink it to incorporate
the yummy goodness throughout my coffee.
*For those of you that follow the THM plan,
this is considered an S.*
And if you really don't like that the oil floats to the top,
you can blend the coffee in a blender.
This is what the Bulletproof coffee looks like.
All I know, is it is so much better for you
than all those trans fat creamers out there!
I hope you give it a try and if you do,
tell me what you think!
I hope you all have a wonderful January!!
Thanks so much for stopping by....
Hugs to you,
