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.
How to Make Bulletproof Coffee?
- Add the coffee, coconut oil, and whipping cream into your blender bowl.
- Blend for 30 seconds or until super frothy or use a milk frother.
- Enjoy your frothy, high-fat Bulletproof Coffee.
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.
- Increase concentration and attention
- Lowers stress levels
- More energy during the day
- 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
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!).

- It has anti-inflammatory properties.
- 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter provides 3% more vitamin A than classic butter.
