3 Bulletproof Coffee Recipes
Spiced Brown Butter Coffee With Whipped Coconut Cream
In a small saucepan, cook and stir 2 tablespoons butter until butter starts to turn golden brown; remove from heat. Chill until solid. Prepare coffee as directed, using the browned butter instead of butter. If desired, top with the whipped coconut cream.
Whipped Coconut Cream
Place one 15-ounce can full-fat coconut milk and a metal mixing bowl and beaters in a refrigerator overnight. Spoon just the solids from the coconut milk (reserve liquid for smoothies or drinking) into chilled beaters, beat with a mixer on high until soft peaks form. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg or cinnamon. (Refrigerated remaining whipped coconut cream up to 5 days. Whisk before using.)
