Primal Egg Coffee VS Bulletproof Butter Coffee


Posted In: General


Both these coffees are on the rise, I am a fan of both, my personal favorite being Bulletproof – what about you? Maybe mix them both together

This is simply recipes, click the links to read the original articles from the wizards themselves (Mark Sisson at MarksDailyApple and Dave Asprey at BulletproofExec) Enjoy.

Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

  • Start with 4-500 ml (2 mugs) of black coffee brewed with my mold-free Upgraded Coffee beans.   (Why this is important)
  • Add 2 Tbs (or more, up to 80 grams, about 2/3 of a standard stick of butter) of Kerry Gold or other UNSALTED grass-fed butter
  • Add 2 Tbs (30 ml) of Upgraded MCT oil for max energy, weight loss and brain function (this is 6 times stronger than coconut oil, your next best choice)
  • Blend with a pre-heated hand blender, shake really hard in a flask, or (best) counter top blender until there is a creamy head of foam. (It doesn’t work well if you mix it with a spoon)

It’s really fast and easy to prepare.  Realize salted coffee is a crime. Do not do this with salted butter. Bleah.

Kerrygold butter or another grass-fed brand of butter really matters because corn or soy-fed cows don’t make butter with the same fats. Those butters don’t blend well, don’t taste good, and don’t make you feel Bulletproof.

Try this just once, with only 2 Tbs of butter, and have nothing else for breakfast. You will experience one of the best mornings of your life, with boundless energy and focus. It’s amazing.

After one drink of Bulletproof coffee, you’ll never be tempted to eat fat-free, insulin-raising, fat-storing toast and oatmeal breakfasts again!

Primal Egg Coffee

I did a little playing around with this and tried several different recipes. In the end, I think I came up with a solid recipe. Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup (350 ml) coffee
  • 3 pastured egg yolks
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of salt

First, I brewed the coffee (35 grams of coffee beans – I used a light roast, single-origin bean) in a French press. Dumped the grinds in, added about 350 ml of water, gave it a quick stir, covered it, and let it sit for three minutes. Meanwhile, I separated the yolks from the whites. Once the coffee was ready, I dumped it in a blender, set it to “low,” and dropped in the yolks. After a few seconds, I added a teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of salt (around a quarter teaspoon) and let it blend a bit more. Then, I poured it, admired the head of foam, and got to drinking.

I tried fewer yolks and found the brew too thin. I tried more yolks and found it to be unnecessary. Three yolks was perfect. If you want to switch things up, you can add something a little sweet like I did. I added my usual teaspoon of sugar, plus a quarter teaspoon of Himalayan sea salt. Honey, maple syrup, or stevia should all work well, too. The salt may sound odd, but trust me: it just works as long as you use a little sweetness to counterbalance it.

Primal Whole Egg Coffee

Think of this as a whole foods-based protein shake. Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (240 ml) coffee
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt

I started by beating the eggs together, whole, as if you were making scrambled eggs. You could also blend them. For a 1 cup dose of coffee, I did two whole eggs. Once the eggs are beaten or blended, slowly drizzle in the coffee. You don’t want to cook the eggs. You want them to stay creamy. If you’re really concerned about the avidin in the raw white, dump the coffee in to ensure maximal heat exposure. Otherwise, just drizzle.

I think a higher egg:coffee ratio (using a large shot of espresso, for example) for a stronger coffee flavor would work really well. Also, two eggs in this recipe created a nice and creamy concoction. I suspect three eggs might even be better.

Again, I added a little sweetener plus some salt. It made the coffee taste a bit like a liquified custard. Really, really tasty.

Adding Other Ingredients

I also tried out a few other additions to the brews, to see how they meshed with the eggs. Consider adding these:

  • Cinnamon – Goes great with coffee, provides insulin sensitizing benefits.
  • Turmeric – Anti-inflammatory spice, works well with cinnamon.
  • Vanilla – Tastes good, smells better. May have anti-inflammatory effects. Also works well with cinnamon (but not so much with turmeric).
  • Butter and coconut oil – If you dig Bulletproof coffee, adding egg yolks makes it even better.

    This is so cool, and for some reason makes me want to shout, “Adrian!” Thanks for sharing it.

      If a diet isn’t high in sugar, it is completely safe and encouraged to ingest in health fats, egg yolk in combination with egg whites is a perfect combo of branch chain amino’s and highly usable fat

  2. Prehrana za vata doša osobe ili ektomorfe - 5. dio - SpiritusPositivus

    […] Kofeinski napitci, odnosno kava kao glavni predstavnik, su često prikazivani kao napitci koji stimuliraju mozak i podižu razinu energije. Međutim, ovi napitci, su izrazito štetni za vata osobe koje su po svojoj prirodi stimulirane. Često se događa da nakon šalice kave vata osobe postanu hiperaktivne, neusmjerene, nekoncentrirane, probava se poremeti te im se ruke počnu tresti. Kava u poslijepodnevnim satima kod ovih osoba uzrokuje nesanicu. Ukoliko primijetite navedene simptome, tada kava i kofeinski napitci nisu za vas. Kofeinski, odnosno energetski napitci koji djeluju slično kavi, ako ne i nepovoljnije za vata osobe, su Red Bull, Monster, Burn, Rockstar i sl., te ih ne treba uopće piti. Energetski napitci u kombinaciji s alkoholom, poput Red Bull votke, su izrazito loša kombinacija. Ukoliko vata osoba pije kavu tada je preporuka da se u nju doda neka kvalitetna masnoća (vrhnje, žumanjak, kokosovo ulje ili mlijeko) te prstohvat cimeta. Mark Sisson, autor bestselera Primal Bleuprint (preporuka za čitanje) i osnivač, preporuča šalicu i pol kvalitetne kave, dvije žličice maslaca, dvije žličice MTC-ulja te dodatke poput, cimeta, kurkume, vanilije i sl. Druge opcije uključuju kavu, tri žumanjka, malo soli (neki konzumenti smatraju da sol kvari okus), žličicu prirodnog zaslađivača (med i sl.). više o ovim receptima pročitajte ovdje. […]

    Hi there! I came across your recipe for the egg coffee….omigoodness, this sounds so good – I’m trying it tomorrow morning! I have been having my BPC most mornings with the typical GF Unsalted Butter, but I cut mine down to 1/2 tbsp. and added 1/2 tbsp. 35% Whipping Cream, 1 tbsp., HCP and 1 tbsp. MCT Oil. For flavor I use Sebastiano’s Sugar Free Syrup. It all goes into my Nutri-Bullet and blends beautifully with that gorgeous foamy top! So yummy (and pretty…lol). I wonder if you could tell me if the SF Syrup is still ok? I have been on the fence about it, but it tastes so darn good!! I don’t have a way to test my ketone levels – used to rely on the strips which registered me constantly between Trace (.5) and Small (1.5) but once I heard that they aren’t reliable kinda got turned off of using them. Thanks in advance! 🙂
