    We’ve all heard of and probably drunk a fair bit of bulletproof coffee, but have you tried bulletproof marmite? I sometimes want something savoury, and not full of caffeine - also I drink my coffee black, so I’m not a fan of putting butter in it.


    1. Heaped teaspoon of marmite and a tbsp butter in a pint mug.


    2. Fill about a quarter of the way with boiling water and blitz with a stick blender to emulsify the butter.


    3. Then top it up with more water. Blitzing a full mug makes it go everywhere


    Also works with an oxo cube!

    Love it or hate it. :yuck:

    I found that a stock cube (for example Oxo Vegetable) in hot water with a lump of butter tasted surprisingly good.

    No blitzing required.

    I’ve been doing it with veggie oxo cubes too, but wasn’t keen on the layer of oil, so tried blitzing it. Make the whole drink more smooth, I found. Love it!

    Sounds good, I love marmite so will give this a try. I have had a couple of bullet proof coffees this week, have to say although it sounds like the weirdest thing to drink I actually really quite enjoy it

    I've not tried marmite and butter but I do sometimes add a dollop of coconut oil to my soup or stock cube.

    Marmite and butter is awesome on toast. No reason why it wouldn’t be great in a mug too. :D

    I often drink Marmite on its own, but will definitely try with butter, sounds yummy.
