Recipe for Profee

 

After some mini experiments in the kitchen I came across a mixture of the following makes a great coffee and protein mix (Profee – subject to patent pending*) to give your normal coffee or even a Bulletproof coffee some extra taste.

-1 tablespoon of Kerrygold butter

-1 tablespoon of MCT Oil or coconut oil

-Coffee brewed from organic coffee beans

*I’m joking about the patent pending.Seriously though, don’t use that without my permission.
