Tim Tebow loves his butter coffee and its easy to see why. His secret recipe is a mix of regular and decaffeinated coffee that he stirred with heavy organic whipping cream, grass-fed butter, unsweetened almond milk, and two to three drops of English toffee-flavored liquid stevia. The beverage Tebow made had an oily film on top and a Toffee Nut Latte taste, which he described as "a little bit like milkshake." Yummy.

Meanwhile, we see Ayesha Curry blending "superstrong" coffee mixed with grass-fed butter, coconut oil and some multi-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. The restaurateur and Food Network personality told Harper's Bazaar she makes that coffee blend when she is doing intermittent fasting, an eating pattern that involves cycling between periods of fasting and eating, adding that it is a "brain fuel" that helps one function.

Along with Ronda Rousey, Halle Berry and Busy Philipps, Tebow and Curry join the ranks of celebrities who swear by this healthy and trendy coffee recipe. Called bulletproof or butter coffee, this coffee drink can guarantee that it will jumpstart your mornings every day. Curious about what bulletproof coffee can do to your health and well-being the way it did to the celebs above? Read on.

What is bulletproof coffee?

A powerful part of intermittent fasting and ketogenic diets, bulletproof coffee is not just any ordinary latte. This powerful and keto-friendly high-performance coffee drink helps you feel satiated, alert and focused, allowing you to get more tasks done every day.  

It is typically made of coffee (either regular or decaf), grass-fed butter and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil, but can be added with other healthy and keto-friendly ingredients as in the case of Tim Tebow's butter coffee recipe. 

Benefits

Bulletproof coffee has various benefits that can make your mornings better, according to cloud computing engineer, "father of biohacking" and the creator of the recipe, Dave Asprey.

Bulletproof coffee's benefits include:

  • Weight loss via ketosis 
  • Low cholesterol levels
  • Reduced cravings 
  • Improved cognitive function for better brain use
  • Improved exercise performance
  • Increased energy -- in no small part due to the caffeine in coffee 
  • Improved gut health (due to the MCT oil in the mix)

Founded and currently headed by Asprey, Bulletproof is built on the science that helped him lose 100 pounds. Its products are made based on the latest research as well as knowledge from ancient Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, and are backed by "a steadfast commitment to quality" and plenty of bulletproof coffee. 

Whether it is made from whole beans, a cold brew or a small batch blend, Bulletproof's coffee is guaranteed to give an extra kick to your mornings. Here are some of Bulletproof's offerings:
