The secret to the best keto coffee: add grass-fed butter, coconut oil or MCT oil, and heavy whipping cream to dark coffee. Basically, it means putting fat in your coffee to kill cravings and have instant energy.

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.

What is Bulletproof Coffee?

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”.

Bulletproof coffee is a keto coffee made with butter, ghee, coconut oil, or MCT oil along with keto coffee creamer or other delicious add-ins. It’s a super popular drink in the keto community along with chaffles and keto fat bombs.

This homemade bulletproof coffee is usually used in intermittent fasting because of its properties to keep you full for a longer time and more energized than usual.

So, if you’re not a fan of coffee, you can enjoy a delicious keto bulletproof tea that has similar benefits but it’s made with tea instead of coffee.

Ingredients for Bulletproof Coffee

These are the ingredients I use for 2 servings of the bulletproof coffee. If you want only one serving, use only 1/2 of the ingredients and blend them.

  • 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 though 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 Bulletproof Coffee?

This coffee drink is actually creamy and delicious, but why add butter in coffee? Well, there are some incredible potential benefits:

  • Fat loss
  • Appetite Suppressant- drinking bulletproof coffee in the morning keeps me full until lunch.

The benfits of drinking bulletproof coffee are incredible: Fat loss, Appetite Suppressant, increased concentration and attention, Lowers stress levels, More energy during the day.

Flavorful Add-ins

  • Cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric- Adding spices will increase the health benefits of this keto drink and make it even more delicious.
  • 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 To Make This Keto Coffee

Well, to mix the bulletproof coffee ingredients and get that nice creamy texture you’ll need a cheap blender or an Electric Milk Frother.

I tried to make bulletproof coffee 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!).

Why Choose Grass-fed Butter – 7 Benefits

Grass-fed butter is higher in many nutrients than regular butter.

  1. It has anti-inflammatory properties.
  2. 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter provides 3% more vitamin A than classic butter.
  3. Great source of omega-3 fatty acids.
  4. Contains 500% more CLA (Conjugated linoleic acid). Studies show that CLA helps with weight loss by changing the body composition.
  5. Grass-fed butter is rich in Vitamin K2 which has anti-cancer effects.
  6. Improves the texture of the skin, preventing acne and eczema due to being a great source of retinol.
  7. Rich source of Vitamin E which is a great antioxidant.

If you are dairy sensitive, you can use Ghee. Some studies show that ghee stimulates a healthy immune system

How Many Cups of Bulletproof Coffee Can I Drink?

You can choose to drink all 2 cups during the day or share it with family or friends.

Make sure you don’t drink too many servings because it might prevent you from losing weight as they are quite high in calories.

  1. Can you make a creamer up and add to your coffee st a restaurant.we eat low carb breakfast every morning

  2. Hi Ioana, where do you find lactose free heavy cream? Or are you referring to a plant based cream like product?

  3. Hi Ioana!
    I’m new to Keto. Can you drink this twice a day? Sometimes I’m in a rush at lunch and this seems like it could be a good option to have lunch on some days too.

    1. I am a huge fan of a healthy and nutritious diet, and I'd say that you need to eat real food to get all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. This is very important, especially since your body is trying to adapt to a new lifestyle. Switching from a glucose burner to burning fat for energy requires lots of attention.

    1. I am not sure what's the difference between the two of them (the extract method). I guess the liquid one has something that prevents it from hardening when chilled but with the same benefits.

    1. Let the coffee cool down a little. If it’s way too hot you can even injure yourself from the pressure accumulated inside of the blender.

  4. Where can I get lactose free HWC, I use the organic Horizons HWC but I don’t think it’s lactose free. Also I’d like to know if I can use 2tbspn of MCT or butter in order to reach my fat content for the day .????

    1. It’s not necessary to use lactose-free if you’re not intolerant to dairy. Yes, You can add MCT oil or butter for extra fats and creaminess.

  5. 5 stars
    Can I someHOW…… MAKE THIS to take with me and be able to use at work or in a restaurant to put into my coffee. Thank you —
