So what is keto coffee? In it’s purist form, it is a combination of butter, coconut oil OR MCT oil and coffee. In recent years, it has devolved into basically being any kind of coffee with lots of fat blended into from a variety of sources like:
- Heavy cream
- Coconut milk
The original, and in my opinion, the best version of Bulletproof coffee is two parts canna – butter to one part MCT oil. I find it unnecessary to get too concerned over the intricate details of where your MCT oil is sourced from and whether the cow that produced your butter was milked within the last three days. Just get some of your home made canna – butter and some MCT oil and you’re good! Oh and you are going to need an Immersion blender!
- 2 cups coffee
- 2 tablespoons Canna – Butter (I use grass fed)
- 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil (or MCT oil)
- 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream (Optional)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (Optional)
*It’s a simple recipe, but don’t let that fool you. It tastes great, fuels you during the day, and has tons of additional health benefits. If you want to make it 0 net carbs, simply opt out of using the vanilla and heavy cream!
*Ketoproof coffee goes by a lot of names but it is originally adapted from Tibetan and Ethiopian butter coffees that hundreds of years old. Keep in mind that the name has become mainstreamed and is used to describe any cup of coffee with fat in it.
