This energizing coffee specialty is a wonderful way of starting the day with the right foot, especially for everyone looking to cut back on carbs. The caffeinated drink is packed with protein and the good type of saturated fat, and if you’re on the keto diet, you know this is precisely what you need.
The keto bulletproof coffee is quite simple but effective; it’s pretty tasty as well, so try it and get a caffeine and energy boost.
This one’s also called the butter coffee, so you know we’re adding butter in there. Source grass-fed, high-quality butter for this one. You’ll also need a cup of coffee. I use drip coffee, but you can easily use filter, percolator or pod coffee. Make it as strong or mild as you want.
Since this is a keto bulletproof coffee, we’re using liquid stevia to sweeten our coffee. Of course, any zero-calorie sweetener works just as well. Finally, I recommend trying the coffee and deciding if a splash of milk or cream is for you. I like my bulletproof creamy, so that’s a yes from me, but we all enjoy our morning brew differently.
To make a keto bulletproof coffee, brew your favorite coffee and stir in the butter. If the butter is too cold, like when straight from the fridge, it will cool down your coffee a little, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
Sweeten the coffee to taste with your favorite sweetener and add milk or cream to taste. If you’re not all that worried about consuming carbs, honey is the sweetener of choice for this specialty.
Enjoy a cup of keto bulletproof coffee with a hearty breakfast, from sausage and eggs to keto pancakes. The coffee has a lot of saturated fat, and if you’re in a ketogenic state, ideally, your body will turn it into energy, so this is a great way to stay energized all day.
Now, for a fun take on the classic, try substituting butter with unsweetened nut butters, like almond butter, pecan butter or cashew butter; the sky’s the limit! For now, let’s stick with the traditional bulletproof recipe.
Brew the coffee and melt the butter in it while hot.
Sweeten with stevia or your favorite sweetener, and optionally add milk or cream.
