Ever tried adding butter to your morning coffee?
Not only does adding fat make a super creamy and delicious cup of Bulletproof coffee for this keto drink recipe, but it also gives me some boosted energy while helping me stay full longer. This idea known as Bulletproof coffee is pretty popular among keto loving people, including myself! It’s easy to whip up using a blender, and it’s helped me kick the unhealthy coffee creamer habit!
What’s up with this Bulletproof coffee everyone’s drinking?
Bulletproof coffee is a well-known drink consisting of brewed coffee, grass-fed butter, and MCT oil, or coconut oil. It was first made popular by Dave Asprey, author of the Bulletproof Diet and the Bulletproof blog. If you’re following a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet, the combination of caffeine and fats will give you added endurance and fuel in the morning.
Components of Bulletproof coffee
Brewed Coffee. Simply brew your favorite coffee at home!
MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) Oil or Coconut Oil. These are very similar, however, MCT oil is more concentrated. For instance, coconut oil is 55% MCTs, while MCT oil is made 100% of MCTs. Just be careful with MCT oil and start with a teaspoon at a time, as some people find it upsets their stomach at first.
Grass-fed Butter. Grass-fed butter tends to be higher in vitamin k and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids than in traditional, grain-fed cows. Kerrygold butter is a great brand to consider!

Hip Tip: Don’t skip the blending process, this is what helps make it creamy and frothy. If you don’t blend it, you won’t get the same result. You can also use a handy coffee frother like this one instead of a blender if that’s easier for ya in the morning! It works great, too!
Wake up to creamy frothy coffee!
I LOVE Bulletproof coffee. It’s incredibly rich, filling, and oh so good. You can also customize it with a little Stevia, ground cinnamon, and/or vanilla extract as desired. The result is an incredible creamy latte-like cup of coffee.
I live in Boise Id. A Pacific Northwest co called Thomas hammer has burn butter!!! Add heaven whip!! It’s Bullit x 2. Reasearching Burn butter they are often sold out.
Oh awesome! We’ll have to keep an eye out for that! Thanks for the suggestion!
Joined the 30 day challenge and my brain can’t get past the butter in coffee… it isn’t oily coffee? I also have to go find this kerrygold butter I never noticed before but now I keep seeing it everywhere.
if you froth it, it’s pretty yummy. And it does kind of moisturize your lips 🙂 But if you don’t love it, maybe just use a little heavy cream instead.
Lina, i been doing Keto for a month now. Finally trying the bulletproof coffee. should i use C8 MCT oil or just MCT oil?
Hi there! Any MCT oil should work just fine!
I finally made myself try the Bulletproof coffee and wow I love it! It’s not oily at all and I used Mexican vanilla in mine and it was delicious. It’s a must try. Thanks for sharing
I’m so glad you are enjoying it!
I’ve tried it this morning and Oh boy it was really good. I just don’t like black coffee. Thank you!
Oh great! Thanks for sharing ❤️
Hey there! Where do you get the Mexican vanilla?
Hi Jenni! It looks like you may be able to find that at Walmart or Amazon. Hope this helps!
My husband and I tried the bullet drink for the first time today and wow !!! We both love it thank you for sharing
Oh hooray! Thanks for sharing 🤗
Are we allow to have more then one cup a day ? I used the ghee butter and mct oil
Hi Kathy! That can vary as to what your personal Keto goals are. Maybe start out slowly at first, as the additional MCT oil may bother your stomach.
Thank you ill stick to one a day ☕
You’re very welcome, Kathy!
I love coffee in my creamer if you know what I mean kinda girl! And this definitely isn’t sweet at all! But I’ll have to find other ways because I’m just starting out and have already spent so much money on items I needed to be successful. So I’ll bare the bitter taste..
Hi there! Darn💔 So sorry to hear. If you love creamy coffee we have a different recipe that you may prefer. It’s not bulletproof but its a delicious & very creamy creamer. I’m a huge coffee creamer lover too & this is my go to👇 Hope this helps❤
I’m new to coffee. How does one know what is good or bad coffee, I sure like with everything there is good or not so good. Let me know what you use I’m game for trying any brand
Hi Maribel! My favorite is the Starbucks espresso beans, to make a dark Americano. You could also ask this question in the group for more suggestions! https://www.facebook.com/groups/hip2keto30dayketochallenge
Hope this helps!
I love keto bulletproof coffee but as described here, I follow all the steps except the use of butter. I use ghee instead of using butter. Please try coffee with ghee and you will find it the best keto recipe you can really enjoy.
