Mint Mojito Iced Bulletproof Coffee

By: Bulletproof Staff

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
  • 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.
