Mixing Coconut Oil when it’s cold –

Coconut oil is characteristically solid when the temperature goes below 75 degrees F and therein lies a problem when trying to mix it with your pet’s food. A few months ago I started making myself what is termed a “bulletproof” coffee, coined by Dave Asprey, who popularized the drink. The coffee is made with hot coffee, coconut oil and butter in a blender! The blender emulsifies (term means suspension of a liquid into another liquid) the coconut oil and butter into the coffee and makes a wonderful tasting coffee.

I realized that one could use that very same process for adding it to pet food. Adding very hot water with coconut oil in a blender does emulsify the oil in the water so it can be poured or mixed into pet food. The proportions that I recommend are 1/2 tsp. of coconut oil to 1/2 cup of hot water and scale up from there as needed.

Once the oil has been emulsified, it takes a lot longer and lower temperature for it to solidify again, therefore making it much more manageable as an addition to your pet’s food.
