You’re probably familiar with Bulletproof coffee. You know, the one that’s blended with butter. The one that curbs your appetite, increases mental clarity, and generally makes drinkers feel superhuman? Yep, that’s the one. Though the focus is often on butter, there’s another ingredient that packs an equally fatty punch: MCT oil.
Short for medium-chain triglycerides, MCTs are fatty acids that have taken the coffee world by storm in the past few years (mainly because of Bulletproof coffee). But you don’t have to be a coffee- or butter-lover to reap the benefits. From smoothies to lattes to nut butter, these healthy recipes will help you spread the MCT oil love — and reap the many benefits too.
