Keto Butter Coffee
Bulletproof coffee is freshly brewed black coffee or espresso that is blended with grass fed butter and MCT oil to form a frothy, creamy coffee filled with lots of healthy fats to keep you full until lunch. Also known as keto butter coffee, this recipe is popular among the keto diet followers as it contains a large amount of fats to keep you full until you next meal and keep you in ketosis.

Benefits Of Grass Fed Butter

Ideally, you want to add butter from a pasture raised cow (aka grass fed butter). Butter made from this type of animal has a higher omega 3 fatty acid content and vitamin k2 (which only comes from grass fed animals).

What Is Mct Oil?

MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides and is sourced from coconut oil or palm oil. A medium chain fatty acid is about 8-10 carbons in length in a fatty acid chain. MCT oils are immediately used as fuel for someone on the keto diet as there is not much digestion that takes place when you consume it.

Bulletproof Coffee Add Ins

Besides the basics, many people like to add in a few other ingredients into their butter coffees to make it specific to their tastes. These include:

  • collagen powder
  • adaptogens
  • Himalayan salt
  • stevia or other sweeteners
  • sugar free coffee syrups
  • heavy cream
  • half and half
  • cinnamon
  • protein powder

Blender Vs Frother For Bulletproof Coffee

I prefer to use a blender rather than a frother for making keto bulletproof coffee since it produces a very frothy and creamy cup of coffee. However, a milk frother is nice to have when you don’t have access to a blender or you are on the go. Handheld milk frothers are battery operated and don’t require electricity to run.

Why Do People Put Butter In Coffee?

People on the keto diet love to put butter in their coffee. Besides providing a dose of healthy fats, adding butter makes the coffee super creamy and frothy without having to add milk or a ton of cream. It’s like having a coffeehouse latte without all the dairy. So if you are someone that likes extra foam on your coffee, drinking butter coffee is the way to go.

Espresso Vs Regular Coffee

Espresso is generally a smaller, more concentrated coffee. When brewed, espresso can develop a creamy foam on top called the crema. It’s like having a frothy bulletproof coffee without using cream, butter or MCT oil. Of course, you can still add these items to your morning espresso in order to achieve a creamy, richer espresso.

If you are looking for a coffee that is less acidic than regular coffee, try Golden Ratio. It is so smooth and comes in different flavors. I love to enjoy mine as a bulletproof coffee or just with a splash of cream.
