I’m a member of some keto Facebook groups and it seems the admins of some of them get a little crazy when you use the term “bulletproof coffee” when you are talking about coffee with non-salted butter, coconut oil or heavy whipping cream. They believe it causes much confusion and delay.
Bulletproof Coffee is actually a trademark- there is a difference in Bulletproof Coffee and bulletproof coffe….one is a name brand and one is something you just throw together.
The actual Bulletproof Coffee is something you can get from a webpage and it has their brand of “fancy” coffee with some “fancy” grass-fed butter or ghee stuff and some “fancy” brain octane oil.
Now, by “fancy”, I actually mean expensive.
Most of us just make the “bulletproof coffee” that you can find on the internet that has just normal coffee, coconut oil and grass-fed unsalted butter or heavy whipping cream.
It seems that we need SOMETHING to call this delicious, frothy goodness and since this is my website and I don’t want you to get confused…I’ll call mine Shark Piss.
Mmmmmmmmmm Shark Piss….
Ok, fine…that doesn’t sound like something you would want to drink.
So, let’s call it – Sharkfee. (or Cream of Shark…which also doesn’t sound very pleasant.)
This was created by my amazing wife, the Original Sharkette and she basically just Googled…”bulletproof coffee” and saw that it was way too expensive so then she clicked on another link of a homemade version and boom! We stole that recipe, made a very slight change and renamed it Shark Piss….no, I mean…Sharkfee.
Basically, get some coffee….I don’t care what kind- we use K-cups or usually whatever is cheapest…I think this time our selection was Kroger brand. Make that cup o’ coffee and then throw in –
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp pure coconut oil
2 tbsp sugar free chocolate syrup
*must blend in a blender to fully mix.
Now, you can use ANY sugar free syrup or none at all…we like chocolate. We found some at the Dollar Tree and picked it up.
Our version doesn’t have as much calories, which could be good or bad, depending on what you are going for.
1 serving (a cup/K-cup) is –
This is a good drink to help get enough healthy fat; which is a must for me because I eat a lot of chicken and meat and sometimes drink a Premier Protein shake for breakfast.
Now I’m not a DR but coconut oil has some great health benefits and I’m thinking that “fancy brain octane” could just be coconut oil but I don’t really care enough to research it.
SO…here is some fancy stuff I stole from Livestrong.com-
“Coconut oil contains a unique form of saturated fats known as medium-chain triglycerides. Unlike other saturated fats, MCTs provide an energy source for the body, rather than being stored, according to “Supplements 101” by Jim Stoppani. The fats contained in coconut oil may also help to boost thermogenesis and/or fat burning in the body. You can take either organic virgin coconut oil or isolated MCT supplements extracted from coconuts. Follow a few guidelines to add coconut oil to your fitness program.”
Now…if YOU are a member of a keto Facebook group, be sure to use “Shark Piss” when you are talking about our version of this drink! Do not cause confusion and delay!
Wait…I meant Sharkfee.
Love, Peace and Sharkness
