You need just two ingredients...... Coffee and coconut oil.....although
this might taste just as good if you can't have coffee and might try using hot cocoa, or hot carob liquid instead.

So, take a cup of hot coffee or your substitute, put it into a blender, add 1-2 tsp of coconut oil and blend until frothy.

Pour into a cup....the coffee now tastes and looks like you used one of those fake non dairy creamers....

Truly delicious!

Ahh, yes, bulletproof coffee.

I've heard you can do it with ghee, too. I might try doing this, though I don't know how excited I am about putting hot (herbal) coffee in my blender. Thankfully, I have a glass one.

If you do it with butter or ghee, folks, make sure it's UNSALTED. I made the mistake using regular salted butter once. OMG, it was AWFUL. Like, I wanted to vomit, it was that bad. But I wasn't going to waste that precious grass-fed butter and my coffee!!!

I had bought Almondmilk last week and liked it until I looked at the ingerdients... GMO and all else.. I poured the rest down the drain..

What a sorry state of affairs.. nothing proccessed to buy, I mean nothing!  



Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I believe coconut oil is an avoid for O's.  Sounds good though.

Goldie, yeah, it's sad. Make your own! Raw almonds + water and a pinch of salt. Soak the almonds in water for a few hours (can go a whole day or more), blend them in a good blender with some warm water (enough to make it blend easily), strain the solids with a cheesecloth or "nut milk bag" (don't laugh, it's invaluable if you make your own), and then thin it out with as much water as you like.

It lasts about 4 days in the fridge. Any more than that, and I'm weary of using it.

Jane, you can do it with ghee or butter. It gets really frothy, almost like a latte. Not bad, though I prefer cream, but if you're 100% compliant, it's a good substitute. I don't have issues with cream, but it is an avoid. It's pretty much the last thing I need to give up to be 100% compliant, as I'm basically off of coffee at this point (love my carob/chicory homemade coffee!).

Use ghee instead....I tried it and it tastes just as good as coconut oil  

And I tried Teecino (gluten free version) with both ghee and CO....equally yummy.

Coconut oil is neutral for O nonnies on BTD, and a wider range of people on GTD and SWAMI.

Or you can do what I do, pour the homemade almond milk in a couple of ice cube trays, freeze them and use them that way. Lasts a lot longer than 4 days. I only ever use almond milk in coffee, so the frozen cubes work well for me.

Very good idea, Drea! Do you just drop them individually into your coffee, or do you thaw them in the fridge first?

If ou are going to use the almond milk as "creamer" use only 4 cups of water to one cup of almonds (one cup before they are soaked).  When I make it to drink I use 7 1/2 cups of water.  

And I also add grated nutmeg (a little) and about 1 Tbsp. honey to my batch of drinking almond milk.  Big yum!  I used to use 1/2 tsp. homemade vanilla extract but vanilla is now a black dot for me, and I find that I like the grated nutmeg a lot.  

Dates are a black dot for me, but if you can have dates, you can put 2 dates in the blender with the almonds instead of using the honey.

I put the cubes in my cup, then let the coffee drip (I use a Melitta cone) on top of them. Yes, it does cool the coffee, but this way I don't burn my mouth!

Yes, I am aware that most recipes call for 4 cups of water to one cup of almonds, but I find that too thick for our liking.  We are milk drinkers and the way I make it suits us just fine. And costs less

I have thought about trying it with just the 4 cups of water, but my servings of nuts and seeds per week are rather limited anyway and this helps stretch things out a bit, plus we are happy with it the way I make it.
