Bulletproof coffee or Fat coffee or Butter Coffee are the names used by the keto dieters who add healthy fats in the coffee for extra energy and health benefits.
Since I started the keto diet, I wasn’t allowed to add anything that could make my coffee taste like dessert as I was used to. I don’t really enjoy black coffee with sweeteners.
I was searching for a method that could help my coffee taste great.
The secret was simple: add grass-fed butter, coconut oil or MCT oil and heavy whipping cream to my 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.
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 make 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.
Essential ingredients for the bulletproof coffee:
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.
Coconut Oil and MCT oil
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.
Heavy Whipping Cream
It has 30-36% fat. Try to find a lactose free version.
What are the health 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 and health benefits
- Cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric
- Keto-approved sugar substitutes (Stevia Drops to taste)
- Sugar-free Syrups
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!).
