But now, thanks to the folks at Coffee Blocks, you can brew the beverage instantly—in your kitchen or on the go. While we appreciate the innovation, there really doesn't need to be an easier way to drink butter.
To create their product, makers mixed instant coffee with grass-fed butter, coconut oil and free-range egg yolks (an ingredient not found in traditional Bulletproof coffee), formed into a solid block and packed into a small single-serve pod. To whip up a cup all you have to do is add hot water and blend it in a shaker bottle or an immersion blender. But don’t be alarmed if you notice little particles floating around in your cup before you take the first sip. Apparently, sometimes when the water used to make the drink is too hot, the egg yolks clump together. How…appetizing.
If you’ve been keeping up with health trends, you heard about this controversial morning beverage long before it was packed into tiny pods. The drink is said to keep hunger at bay, ward off cravings, stabilize blood sugar and even help the body burn belly fat—even though it’s filled with 37 grams of saturated fat—more than double the daily recommended intake. While Coffee Blocks has much less than this at 14 grams, it’s still more than you should consume in a day. Our suggestion, skip this Coffee Blocks and keep butter out of your coffee. These drinks can carry up to 400 calories a cup, which will do as much good for your waistline and health as a stack of pancakes smothered in butter and syrup.
