In addition to helping you lose weight and increasing your energy levels, a BBC Good Food article states, “It's claimed bulletproof coffee will quash appetite, stabilize hunger and provide calories to fuel your morning. As well as being calorie-rich, butter supplies fat-soluble vitamins including A, D, and K, is a source of gut-friendly butyrate, and supplies conjugated fats, which may help improve body fat composition.”

Otherwise, proceed to step two and pour over the milkshakes once blended.
