Have you been wanting to try bulletproof coffee but are afraid you don’t have the right equipment? Making bulletproof coffee is not rocket science, the recipe is not complicated, but how you prepare it does matter. The secret to truly delicious bulletproof coffee is to get it frothy and creamy. Not every blender is cut out for the job, but we’ve got you covered - the Vibe Blender System will take care of your daily Bulletproof coffee habit and then some.

What is Bulletproof Coffee? 

The Bulletproof coffee trend has been around for years now. It was created by Dave Asprey, an American entrepreneur and author who created the Bulletproof diet. Bulletproof coffee, also known as butter coffee, is a high-calorie coffee made with added fats. It is claimed that drinking this in the morning will suppress hunger, boost mental clarity and increase your energy. The drink has become popular with followers of Paleo, low carb and ketogenic eating plans.

A blender is key to getting your butter coffee creamy and frothy. When you blend up the ingredients, the result will look like a latte, with crema on top but without actual milk or cream. If blended well, the coffee will be a uniform colour and consistency. But if it’s not blended well it may separate, leaving you with a layer of oil on top of the coffee.

Although quality ingredients are essential, the secret to bulletproof coffee does not lie with the style of coffee or fats used. It actually depends on your blender. Few blenders on the market could safely handle blending hot liquids and high-fat ingredients on a daily basis.

The Vibe Blender System

The Luvele Vibe Blender System is a must for every kitchen and has an impressive range of uses far beyond smoothies. It’s powerful enough to grind your own coffee beans even. The Vibe Blender System has been designed with superior components and technology, creating a world class blending system for home use. It’s the ultimate kitchen (and coffee) making tool and will quickly become the only blending appliance you’ll ever need!

When purchasing, you can choose between a stainless steel or plastic jug. To make the Vibe bulletproof, choose stainless-steel.

The Jug

The 1.75 litre stainless-steel jug is designed to withstand hot liquids. The machine has a built in ‘soup’ setting to allow for hot liquid blending. The jug is designed in a way that folds the ingredients back down in on itself creating a vortex motion. This motion combined with high-speed will create friction for heating up the ingredients. Not only can the Vibe stainless-steel jug blend hot liquids it can also heat your food. Perfect for reheating cold coffee even. 

Power

High speed is necessary to get the perfect creamy and frothy texture in your bulletproof coffee. The Vibe is powered by a 1500 ~2200W German designed, heavy duty, variable speed motor and will give you the smoothest, velvety mouthfeel ever! In fact, it’s so powerful that it will create hot soups from cold ingredients through heat friction. Basically, you don’t even need to start with hot coffee!

Blade design

The Vibe has medical grade Japanese stainless-steel blades.

Lid Design

Designed with vented lid to release pressure from steam. 

Controls

The Vibe has an intelligent 'one touch' control panel. Choose the ‘soup’ setting to blend hot bulletproof coffee for exactly the amount of time you require. Also, the temperature sensor control will tell you how hot your coffee is.

INGREDIENTS

  • To make bullet proof coffee you are going to need freshly brewed coffee, - that can be French press, pour over or however you choose to make coffee.
  • Butter gives Bulletproof coffee its undeniably creamy consistency. For a paleo-friendly option with almost no lactose, try using ghee in place of butter. 
  • ‘MCTs’ are medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid from coconut oil that is flavourless and odourless. If you don’t mind the coconut flavour, coconut oil may also be used.

1 cup of brewed coffee
1 teaspoon - 2 tablespoons MTC oil or coconut oil

1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or 1-2 teaspoons of ghee
