Mint Mojito Iced Bulletproof Coffee

Mint Mojito Iced Bulletproof Coffee

Herbalists have used peppermint for hundreds of years knowing it instantly soothes an upset stomach and takes the edge off of a headache. 

Now we have the science to prove it. The minty aroma comes from 1,8 cineole, a well-researched compound found in menthol-containing plants like mint and eucalyptus. Studies show peppermint relieves tension headache[1], treats IBS[2], decreases feelings of sleepiness during the day[3], improves attention, increases alertness[4], and reduces anxiety[5].

For a morning boost of alertness and energy, add a little mint to your Bulletproof Coffee and see if you feel the difference. Better yet, make yourself a refreshing Mint Mojito Iced Bulletproof Coffee for a cool mid-morning sweet treat with the added benefits of collagen.

Mint Mojito Iced Bulletproof Coffee

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. Bulletproof Coffee, freshly brewed
  • 1-2 tbsp. grass-fed butter or ghee
  • 1 tbsp.  Brain Octane Oil
  • 1-2 scoops grass-fed collagen protein
  • 1 tbsp. granulated monk fruit + erythritol sweetener or xylitol (or to taste)
  • 10-15 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 handful of Ice

Instructions:

  1. In a 16-ounce glass mason jar or coffee mug, add mint leaves and sweetener. Muddle with the end of a wooden spoon to bruise the mint leaves and release their oils. Add a handful of ice cubes and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a high-powered blender, add collagen protein, grass-fed butter, Brain Octane Oil, and hot coffee. Blend for 30-60 seconds.
  3. Pour blended coffee over your ice and stir frequently to dissolve the sweetener and chill the hot mixture quickly.

Garnish with more fresh mint if desired.
