I know it has been awhile!

The holidays were crazy here.

My birthday is also right at the beginning of this month. We went to Chicago and ate at some of my favorite restaurants.

Look what I got to indulge in for breakfast on my birthday.

That would be bulletproof coffee

:)

It doesn’t get much better than that!

Yes, I have two new recipes for you.

One recipe is paleo,and the other is gluten free, but doesn’t have to be.

Alivia did not like my paleo version because of the the texture.

Coconut oil keeps the ball harder when cooled, and more temperature sensitive.

I however absolutely love them, and we usually have both versions in out freezer at all times.

P.S. coconut oil is sooo nourishing, and fat does not make you fat! (healthy fats anyway)
