VIDEO: What On Earth Is Unicorn Fuel? Your New Favorite Coffee Drink!

Are you a fan of Bulletproof coffee? Then you'll love this magical concoction called Unicorn Fuel.

"Everyone's super unique, so it's a way to fuel your inner unicorn," says Mary the Paleo Chef, of her high-octane drink. In addition to brain-boosting grass-fed butter and coconut oil, she adds a mix of powerful spices: cayenne to amp up metabolism and calorie burning, cinnamon to help equalize blood sugar, and turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties. Cacao adds a chocolatey dose of antioxidants, and the potent natural energy of maca kicks this drink into high gear.

Whoa! Does this sound like an insane drink to start off the day with? Are you crazy enough to try it? Then watch the video and see the recipe below!

2 cups brewed hot coffee
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
1/2 teaspoon maca
1/2 teaspoon cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 pinch cayenne pepper

Pour coffee into a blender. Add fats and dry ingredients. Blend until frothy. Bottoms up!
