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!

    Is this best only in the morning or could you drink at another time of day? I've been losing weight and don't want to start gaining it back because of the time of day I might be drinkin this.

      I'd sure think it would be good first thing in the morning ESPECIALLY for dieting, but any time of day before 3 so your body's circadian rythm is not disrupted by all the caffeine and good circulation this would cause.
      I drink coffee with stevia, cinnamon, whole raw milk, a teeny shake of Himalayan salt, and the collagen peptides from here every morning and it helped me lose weight.
