Bulletproof coffee is also called Fat coffee or Butter Coffee and it’s a name used by the keto dieters for a special coffee drink high fat and low in carbs. Learn how to make a bulletproof coffee at home and enjoy the extra energy and health benefits.
The secret to the best keto coffee: add grass-fed butter, coconut oil or MCT oil and heavy whipping cream to dark coffee. At first, I thought it’s so gross to see all that fat floating on my coffee.
But after I tried it, I was so surprised by the creamy taste. If you feel fancy, you can add different spices during the brewing like cinnamon, nutmeg, or ice cubes & vanilla extract.

Bulletproof Coffee Origins
The bulletproof coffee concept was created by Dave Asprey that claims that after drinking a cup of the delicious coffee “you will have no interest in food for four to six hours” which makes it great for weight-loss”.
BPC is usually used in intermittent fasting because of its properties to keep you full for a longer time and more energized than usual.
Ingredients for bulletproof coffee:
- Coconut Oil and MCT oil
- Grass-fed butter
- Heavy Whipping Cream – It has 30-36% fat. Try to find a lactose free version.
A note on fats
The butter was always blamed because it’s loaded with saturated fat and could lead to heart attacks. Studies show that there is no link between saturated fats and heart disease.
Butter that comes from cows that are eating grass is loaded with vitamin K2 which reduces the risk of osteoporosis and heart disease. Even that most people didn’t hear about K vitamins, they contain a lot of nutrients that fight against bone and heart disease.
Grass-fed butter is an awesome source of butyrate ( short-chain fatty acid ) which has anti-inflammatory properties.
The best oils that boost your metabolism, help you lose fat, especially abdominal fat. Studies show that coconut oil helps you eat less by reducing your appetite and that the people who substitute the daily fats with MCTs burn more calories while resting.
What are the benefits of the Butter Bulletproof Coffee?
- Fat loss
- Appetite Suppressant
- Increase concentration and attention
- Lowers stress levels
- More energy during the day
Things you can add for extra taste
Using any kind of flavored sugar-free syrup will turn your coffee into a great morning treat. I suggest you don’t overuse sugar-free syrups because the sweeteners contained may stall your weight loss.
Tools you need for the keto coffee
I tried to make BPC with a hand mixer, but it didn’t turn out so well. So a powerful blender will do the job too (even cheap ones are good!).
