Bulletproof Iced Coffee
Bulletproof coffee is the biggest craze in the keto community. Everyone is talking about adding butter, coconut oil, MCT oil in coffee. Dave Asprey is the creator of Bulletproof Coffee, and everyone seems to love it.
Whether you are having this keto coffee instead of breakfast while fasting or drinking it for the benefits, this buttery, creamy drink, it’s very filling and tasty.
MCT oil vs. Butter in Iced Coffee
We all know that butter and coconut solidity at low temperatures. This means that adding either coconut oil or butter to cold coffee will make it utterly unpleasant because who wants to drink chunks of butter!
That’s why we’ll add MCT oil which doesn’t solidify when added in cold drinks. MCT oil (medium-chain triglycerides) is known to have many potential health benefits and may help you lose weight. It’s known as a ketone booster making it fantastic for reaching ketosis and become fat-adapted
Whipping cream is a great addition turning this drink into an iced keto latte. For a dairy-free keto iced coffee replace with coconut cream or unsweetened coconut milk.
How to Make Keto Iced Coffee
Cold keto coffee is easy to make and requires no special tools. Classic bulletproof coffee is made using a blender or a milk frother.
- Start by making a strong coffee using your favorite method. Let it cool completely. Alternatively, you can use cold brew coffee.

Keto Starbucks Iced Coffee
This homemade keto drink is indeed velvety and delicious, but what can you order when at Starbucks.
Ordering at Starbucks seems challenging but here are two of the best options you can have:
- Iced Coffee/ Cold Brew: To make sure you’re getting a keto drink order “no classic” or “unsweetened.”
- Vanilla Iced Coffee: When ordering this kind of coffee request “no classic,” 1-2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup and a splash of heavy creamy. Also, if you want a stronger coffee request “less ice.”
You should avoid regular flavored syrups because each pump comes at about 5-6 grams carbs. The only sugar-free syrups at Starbucks are vanilla, caramel, hazelnut, and mocha.
Frappuccino at Starbucks is not keto-friendly because this drink is made from a powder that comes already sweetened.
