Butter Coffee? Butter Tea? What!?

Butter in your coffee you say?  Well I stumbled across this recipe while I was looking for ways to add coconut oil to my diet. Butter coffee isn’t new. You can find variations of this in Tibet where they put butter in tea. I have yet to find it in Vancouver.

It also adds a creamy rich flavor to your coffee.  Trust me it doesn’t taste like butter.  It almost makes the coffee taste like you added whipping cream to it. Also make sure you are not using salted butter. I don’t know how salty coffee would taste.

I had to try butter in my coffee.  I have to admit I am little obsessed with butter. It is sooooo good. When I was younger I would eat it with saltine crackers or on celery.  My Aunt even love slicing frozen butter and popping it into her mouth to melt. Mmm frozen butter. Butter makes everything better.

The first time I tried butter in my coffee I stirred it in. It left a layer of oil floating on the top of my coffee.  Eww why would anyone want to drink a layer of oil.  Then I read online that some people used a frother. I still need to get one. I used my submersion blender to help get it frothy.

Begin by making your coffee the way you always have it. I usually like mine with a little milk. Make about an 8 ounce cup.

Enjoy!  You won’t notice that there is butter in your coffee. It just gives it a rich, silky smooth texture.

For a variation, you can use coconut oil instead of butter.  It does give the coffee a different flavor but it still helps you get a kick of energy.
