A quick note on this recipe! The original version of this post was published back in 2017. Since then I’ve re-tested the recipe, updated the photographs, and the content. I’m republishing it for you today to enjoy! I hope you continue to make and love this delicious golden milk. xo

Since I work a regular job during the week, I’m up late many nights getting things done around the house or brewing things up on here for Nyssa’s Kitchen!

I like working in the quiet and dark house – it always tends to be a pretty productive time for me. There’s something about that stillness that allows me to focus like no other. But I don’t like staying up so late that I’m dragging to get out of bed in the morning, and sometimes if I get carried away working on the computer or engrossed in a project it can be hard to wind down for bed!

I’ve known for awhile that golden milk can aid in relaxation, and therefore promote a good night’s sleep, so I decided to give it a try. 

Boosting this turmeric latte with an extra dose of healthy fats was sort of an intuitive thing that I included to have an even easier time falling and staying asleep. And after doing some research I found out that having a little bit of fat before bed isn’t just some random thing. It really can help you fall and stay asleep by giving you that same cozy / sleepy feeling you get after finishing an especially satisfying meal.

And that my friends, is the magic of this bulletproof bedtime golden milk latte.

I’m not gonna lie. Discovering how to make bulletproof coffee AT HOME was nothing short of a life changing experience for me.

I had tried it a few times and heard people talk about it for a long time before I made it myself, because somehow it seemed intimidating. Every time I even THOUGHT about making it myself I ended up with more questions than answers.

What even IS bulletproof coffee?

Is bulletproof coffee good for you?

Can you make it hot AND cold?

Do you need a blender to make it?

Is it sweet? Not sweet?

How do you make it so creamy?

What does it taste like?

But mostly – how good could coffee with butter and coconut oil even BE?!

Well my friends, after taking a big deep dive into the world of bulletproof coffee (or boosted coffee, as some call it) I’m so very happy to report that when you make it right, it is indeed very, very good, and not at all hard to make.

Picture your morning cup of coffee all LUXE, creamy, and flavorful with a rich fullness that not only energizes you but ALSO satisfies your every wish for what a morning beverage could be.

Yup, ALL THAT.

Now do you see why I’m so in love?

It’s kind of like a latte but honestly better. Maybe like a latte on it’s very best day. A day where latte’s have superpowers.

Bulletproof Peppermint Mocha Coffee {paleo + vegan option}

I have been sitting on this recipe for so so long! Just waiting for the right moment to share it with you. And now that it’s officially December, I think it’s exactly the right time to show you how to make THE MOST EPIC peppermint mocha bulletproof coffee.

Peppermint mocha bulletproof coffee! The best seasonal upgrade to a classic bulletproof coffee. Easy to make and so SO delicious!

Coffee + peppermint + chocolate = one of those drinks that every cold day in December deserves.

On the weekends, topped off with a little whipped cream situation, and on the weekdays just whipped up quick as can be and poured it into a thermos on your way out the door for the perfect start to your day. Waaay healthier than the coffee shop’s peppermint mocha – have you ever read that long long list of ingredients on their mocha syrup? I will take a scoop of natural cacao powder over that any day of the week.

Plus everyone will think you’re toting around a regular cup of coffee or tea, when in reality you’ve got the most delicious (and HEALTHY!) peppermint mocha keeping you company. Totally a secret worth smiling about. And if they’re lucky you might even let them in on your sweet little mocha thrill.
