Pre-workout Coffee

The ‘bulletproof coffee’ movement has been around for a while now. Adding healthy sources of fat to coffee can provide energy, improve cognitive function and even boost metabolism. It also tastes great. Here is out take on bulletproof coffee. Perfect before an early morning workout or an important meeting.

Combine the following and blend for 10-15 secs. Warm the blender before using to avoid a cold drink.

  • 1 x mug of hot coffee. Use Explosively Strong or Maximum Charge for best results.
  • 1 x dessert spoon of organic, grass-fed butter
  • 1 x dessert spoon organic coconut oil

Optional

  • 1 x dessert spoon raw cacao powder for a healthy mocha
  • Stevia or other sweetener to taste
