Mocha Latte Butter Coffee by Picnik - 10 oz

My first "mocha latte" was a brilliant gas station concoction of hot chocolate and coffee sometime in the late 90s. While that was delicious, it pales in comparison and in nutrition to this bottle of Mocha Latte Butter Coffee. Just one sip and you'll realize that you're going to have a great morning: organic coffee, cocoa, MCT oil, and whey protein all come together in the most perfect of breakfasts. There's even maple syrup to give your whole outlook a sweet point of view. Enjoyed hot or cold out of the bottle, this butter coffee is your new go-to for starting a productive morning. 

For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.

For some of us, coffee is about as important as morning sunshine. Sure, you could technically wake up without a sunrise, but that really wouldn't be any fun at all. We love and consume coffee, and talk about the many benefits from our habit, from simple alertness to a bevy of antioxidants in each cup. And now we've found a way to level-up by making coffee BE our breakfast instead of just drinking it alongside breakfast. Adding healthy fats and a bit of protein takes coffee to the supercharge level of awesomeness. Picnik of Austin has helped by taking that magical lightning and, yes, bottling it.

Chocolate and coffee fans alike will simply adore this Mocha Latte Butter Coffee. How could you not when it starts with organic fair trade coffee, then adds flavors and nutrients galore: organic cocoa, maple syrup, grass-fed butter, MCT oil, whey protein! To say this is breakfast in a bottle is truly an understatement. Picnik's Butter Coffee is how you get your morning done with a spring in your step and a knowing smirk on your face. You know that despite the utter deliciousness you've just consumed all the building blocks for brain function and muscle repair that a person could need at 7 in the morning. 

Just chill the bottle, shake it up, twist off the cap, and start sipping (or chugging) your way to a healthy and refreshing breakfast. Or go the warm route and pour this bottle into a mug or simmering pan of choice and heat until steamy. I've found that heating it up first results in the creamiest coffee mug imaginable, rich and steamy and darn near foamy even without a whisking. Lovely!

Picnik is a real-deal coffee shop in Austin that got its start one spring about 4 years ago, right around the time of the Paleo(fx) conference happening down the road. Folks eager to enjoy excellent coffee, regardless the butter-ness of it all, streamed in and made Picnik a "thing". Now, there's multiple locations in Austin but YOU can experience it yourself, in your own happy little fists: Butter Coffee by Picnik is in bottles!!!

 

Why Butter Coffee by Picnik is so good for you

Feed it real food, real nutrients, yet still convenient and portable for the road or your coffee mug. 

Here's what Picnik says about their oh-so-convenient coffee in a bottle:

Our flavors are inspired by the best-selling blends we serve at our own Austin, Texas flagship and cafe locations.

Here are some of the amazing ingredients in Picnik's Butter Coffee

Grass-Fed Whey Protein

All the better to absorb into your muscles and tissues for rapid recovery and strength: whey protein does it all. Sourced from grass-fed cattle for a healthy you.

Grass-Fed Butter

With all the nutrients of organically-raised dairy, grass-fed butter is pretty much the most beloved fat on the planet. It comes along with Omega-3s, Vitamin D and Vitamin K to help your body get through the morning in style and with satiation. 

MCT Oil

Give your brain a bit of a bump without anything weird going on. MCT oil helps support fat burn while sustaining healthy hormone levels and even stabilizing your mood. So it's win win win all around.

About Picnik Austin, in their own words:

We focus on better ingredients that make our customers feel and perform their very best. We fully embrace the yin and yang of why we eat: to nourish our bodies and to experience pure enjoyment. We believe in eliminating the foods that do not serve our customers health, integrating foods that positively impact our customers health, and educating our customers as to why we choose these ingredients so they can integrate these food philosophies into their own lives.

We're such huge believers in Butter Coffee's nutritional merits that we've based our entire coffee menu around it. We serve kicked-up, nutritionally-dense flavor variations to mimic standard coffee shop favorites, but with better ingredients.

We use unsalted grass-fed Irish butter to make our coffee light and creamy. This replaces a traditional splash of milk. We also include MCT oil, a supplement-strength extract of coconut oil, which tells your body to start running on fat for fuel. We blend this combination of healthy fats to help our customers achieve stabilized elevated energy levels, fat loss, a curbed appetite, increased levels of productivity and enhanced cognitive function.

Here are answers to some of your most important questions!

Hey! Isn't this Bulletproof Coffee?

Short answer is no, but Butter Coffee accomplishes many of the same health benefits. Bulletproof® Coffee is a trademark of Bulletproof® Executive, which we have no affiliation with. Further, the Bulletproof® Coffee recipe does not call for whey protein. It is Picnik's recipe that includes grass-fed whey protein for even more bodily benefits from your head to your toes.
