Keto Bulletproof Coffee

I don’t feel completely ready to start the day until I’ve had my morning coffee. But if I drink coffee on an empty stomach, I tend to feel light-headed.

That’s why I love bulletproof coffee – the butter and coconut oil provide some serious substance so you don’t get the “coffee jitters!”

I know what you might be thinking…butter?!

I was skeptical too until I tried it!

The butter and coconut oil also create a smooth and creamy mouth-feel like a rich latte.

And the foam, oh the foam! Just heavenly!

I don’t know if I’ll ever look at coffee the same!

What Does Bulletproof Mean?

The term “bulletproof” comes from the Bulletproof Diet, created by Dave Asprey with the goal of “biohacking” our bodies and brains into performing at full capacity.

The Bulletproof Diet is similar to the Keto Diet in that it is high-fat and low-carb; however, there is more focus on food quality and cooking methods.

Most (if not all) “bulletproof” recipes, like this Bulletproof Coffee Recipe, will be keto-friendly.

I soften my butter and coconut oil in the microwave before adding to the blender with coffee. This helps everything mix up faster and smoother.

How to make bulletproof coffee

The classic bulletproof coffee recipe contains MCT oil, but I substituted with coconut oil because it is more readily available. You’ll still get brain-boosting benefits plus all the wonderful properties of coconut oil! (It’s my favorite oil!)

How to make bulletproof coffee

We’ve tried a few different blenders and by far the Vitamix outperforms them all (more than one of our previous blenders burned up doing normal food prep). You can get a really good deal on a refurbished Vitamix – that’s how we bought ours and it’s worked like a dream!

    Hey, Thank you for coffee recipe, I really really like the way you explained it, Me and my family this coffee so i’m going to try this one in upcoming weekend where we set together once in a week so this will be amazing

    Thanks for the recipe and video. I am new at Keto and miss my morning coffee.

    I made it and this now will be my go to coffee, I hate that it has so many calories but I should not complain because my usual large DD coffee with 7 shots of creamer is a whole lot more.

    • Most keto recipes do have high calorie content, because fat is proportionately higher in calories and keto is high fat. If you’re not eating many carbs, you don’t really have to worry so much about calories though – that is the great thing about keto! 🙂

    I am new to Keto. I like the coffee recipe except for the coconut oil. Sends me running to the bathroom within minutes of ibgesting. Can I leave it out?

    • You could try the coffee with just butter, or a smaller amount of coconut oil and work your way up. If your diet didn’t previously contain much fat, keto can take a little getting used to. Hope this helps!

  5. It s starting to feel a little like fall already, even though it technically won t be for a few more weeks. Days like this are my favorite still warm, but not too hot. The mornings are already just a little chilly, which is actually pretty nice. It makes my daily keto butter coffee that much better! But to be honest, I m pretty obsessed with this bulletproof coffee recipe year round.

  6. I’m new to Keto (going on Week 2) and have always enjoyed sweet coffee! I’m having a hard time making my coffee sweet enough without the usual flavored creamer. Does the butter and coconut oil provide sweetness??

    • Hi Jill, they will provide a little sweetness, but likely not quite what you’re used to. When we’re used to eating a lot of sugar, our bodies pretty much become addicted to it! I’d suggest adding a sugar free sweetener (just a little bit) so you’ll enjoy the coffee and you can slowly reduce the amount. Once you detox from sugar, you’ll find you crave it less 🙂
