Here’s a bulletproof coffee recipe you haven’t tried yet – try this Breakfast coffee.
This breakfast coffee is sooo delicious. The peppermint + turmeric has a beautiful nutty flavor. The coconut oil + ghee is great brain food. Yay for healthy fats! 🙌🏻
Mix all the ingredients together for a wonderful breakfast! Make sure to use an emulsifier or a blender for best results. Just stirring your coffee doesn’t get the fat mixed in quite well enough.

doTERRA Essential Oils
I recommend only one brand of essential oils to be taken internally and in recipes like like breakfast coffee. Please do not use this recipe if you are going to go out and buy the cheapest brands that you can find. When it comes to essential oils, you get what you pay for. There’s hardly any regulation on the essential oil market so you have to do your due diligence when purchasing oils. After research, I fell on doTERRA. DoTERRA holds themself to the highest purity and safety standards on the market -plus they hold themselves to fair trade and sustainability practices.
You can learn more about doTERRA’s CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) standards on my blog post about it.
