Bulletproof Chai

I've never been a big fan of bulletproof coffee. If you aren't familiar with it, it is basically coffee with coconut oil and grass-fed butter added to it and blended. It's supposed to give you laser focus and sustained energy or something. Anyway,  adding coconut oil and butter just seems to create an oil slick on the top of my coffee, which no matter how much I try, I just don't like.

But recently I heard someone mention a bulletproof chai latte, which sounded like it was worth a shot and it actually turned out delicious! Here's my "recipe":

Bulletproof Chai "Latte"
2 cups hot brewed chai tea (I like this kind)
1 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
1 Tbsp grass-fed butter (I use Kerrygold brand)
1 Tbsp honey or maple syrup (optional)
2-4 Tbsp organic half/half or heavy cream (yum)

Add your ingredients to a blender and blend for a few minutes. You'll need your tea to still be hot so the coconut oil and butter will melt. It will turn frothy and creamy! 

Makes 2 servings - for sharing...or seconds. 

I can't say I've notced laser-sharp focus or anything but it is a fun, tasty fall drink that is quick and easy to make! Hope you enjoy!!
