Bulletproof coffee is a thing. I even started drinking coffee over it, because I didn’t want to put stuff in my tea.
But I’ve been reading up on the carnivore way-of-eating lately, and some of the books discourage coffee. What to do? A good alternative is bulletproof bone broth.
There are many recipes for bone broth out there. Most involve cooking the bones in a crock-pot for up to 48 hours to get all the bonely goodness out. I’ve made bone broth from beef, pork, and leftover chicken bones. It’s all good.
Bulletproof Bone Broth or Broth
1 cup or more bone broth (or 3/4 cup bone broth and 1/4 cup water) or ordinary broth
1-2 Tablespoons fat- tallow, bacon fat, lard, schmaltz, butter or ghee, extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil or MCT oil for the plant-eaters.
Optional – 1 -2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream, unwhipped. May substitute coconut milk or cream.
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or Himalayan pink salt. (Omit if you really have to.)
Optional– herbs or spices for flavoring.
Put the ingredients in a saucepan. Put it on a stove burner set to low for at least five minutes or until any solid fats melt. Stir a little if you like.
When time is up, pour the broth into a mug. You may need to wait a couple of minutes for it to cool to drinkable temperature.
