I’ve been hearing a lot about “Bulletproof” coffee lately and as someone who recently realized that coffee actually isn’t that bad, I wanted to try it. I made it a few times with some coffee that I have at home and while I maintain that no, caffeine still doesn’t affect me, it really wasn’t that bad. In fact, it was kind of enjoyable.
From that though, I wanted to make more of a “protein punch” coffee version.
Enter Sunwarrior. Sunwarrior recently revamped their “Classic” protein powder to create “Classic Plus“. Still a raw, plant-based protein, they added an awesome blend of ancient grain superfoods (including peas, chia seeds, quinoa and amaranth) to their original rice protein. It’s also now USDA certified organic with a complete amino acid profile.
On the taste end, I really enjoy the changes they made to their Vanilla flavor. I feel like it has a much stronger vanilla-bean flavor to it without added sweetness or an aftertaste.

I decided to make my own “bulletproof” café latte version and not to toot my own horn, but it’s pretty darn delicious. An awesome way to start they day and keep you fueled throughout!
