Keto or
bulletproof coffee: what is it?

 

Bulletproof
coffee, the popular term for keto coffee, was coined by Dave Asprey, who was
also the founder of the Bulletproof Diet. The alternative for coffee became
popular among low-carb and keto dieters and is now widely known around the
world.

 

Keto coffee
is basically a black coffee that is complemented with butter and MCT oil. The
idea behind keto or bulletproof coffee is that it’s a low-carb alternative for
sugary coffee. At the same time, the healthy fats provide you with the fuel you
need. The fats will also make you feel full, which is why it’s a perfect drink
to start your day or after a period of intermittent fasting.

 

How does it
taste?

You might
need to get a little used to the taste, especially if you’re used to drinking
coffee with sugar and milk. A bulletproof keto coffee tastes a bit like a
latte, but without the sugar. As milk – which is nothing more than a natural
sugar – and sugar aren’t allowed on a keto diet, you’ll have to learn how to
eat and drink without them anyways, so you better start with this great coffee
keto diet alternative!

 

Key
ingredients for your keto coffee

 

Although
tastes differ and everyone likes their coffee in a specific way, we can point
out the basic ingredients that are necessary to make a great keto coffee. As
some of you may like to add an extra component to give your coffee an extra
taste, we’ll also highlight three ingredients to make this possible.

 

       

  • Black
    coffee:
    You can use any kind of grind and beans, as long as it’s
    freshly brewed black coffee. The original Bulletproof Coffee uses organically
    grown beans, to make sure it contains the least amounts of toxins possible, but
    regular coffee will work as well.
  •    

  • Butter: Choose preferably
    grass-fed butter or ghee, as these are the healthy fats that the keto diet
    encourages to eat. Adding these fats to your coffee is an easy way to consume
    more of them and they also make the coffee very filling.
  •    

  • MCT
    oil:
    MCT oil, or medium-chain triglycerides are a keto
    favourite. MCT oil is typically made from coconut oil, but you can also find
    MCTs in palm kernel oil, whole milk or butter. MCT oil has the unique ability
    to travel immediately to your liver, where it boosts ketone production [3].
    Several studies also show that MCTs promote fat loss [4].
  •    

  • Coconut
    oil:
    Instead of MCT oil, you can also use coconut oil in your
    keto diet coffee. Adding it to your keto drink helps you stay in ketosis as –
    just like MCT oil – it’s loaded with medium chain triglycerides
    (MCTs).
  •    

  • Vary with
    Erythritol, Stevia, turmeric or cinnamon:
    The beautiful thing
    about keto coffee is that, just with regular coffee, you can give it a personal
    twist. As long as the stuff you add is keto-friendly, the sky is the limit. You
    want your coffee to taste sweeter? Add the natural, keto-friendly sweetener
    Erythritol. Do you like spicy? Try turmeric or cinnamon! They both have some
    great health benefits as well, like reducing inflammation [5][6].
  •    

  • Blender: This is no ingredient of
    course, but it’s important to mix all your keto coffee ingredients together in
    a blender. This way, your coffee will become a bit fluffier and creamier. You
    can also use a (electric) hand whisk.
  •    

  • If you don’t have these tools at
    hand, or want to make it easy for yourself, you can also opt for one of our
    easy  instant coffees. Simply add hot
    water, shake or stir well and your keto coffee is ready to drink.

 

SUMMARY

The key
ingredients of keto coffee are black coffee, MCT or coconut oil and grass-fed
butter or ghee.

 

The 5
benefits of bulletproof coffee

 

So why
exactly should you add butter and oil to your coffee? Although there’s plenty
of research on the consumption of coffee in general, there are only a few
studies on the specific consumption of keto coffee. Thus, we can’t draw any
formal conclusions on keto coffee as such.

 

However,
looking at all the key ingredients of bulletproof coffee, we can see why it is
claimed that drinking keto coffee has the following benefits:

 

       

  1. It helps you stay
    in ketosis:
    Keto coffee is packed with butter and MCT oil, which
    your liver can use to produce ketones from. So, when you are in a state of
    ketosis, drinking a keto coffee fuels your body with healthy fats and thus
    helps you stay in ketosis.
  2.    

  3. It contributes to
    weight loss:
    As keto coffee is low-carb but high in healthy
    fats, it supplies your body with the right ingredients to stay in ketosis. This
    means that your body is forced to burn fat for fuel instead of glucose and this
    of course contributes to losing weight.
  4.    

  5. It helps you feel
    full and satisfied:
    The MCTs and butter in keto coffee give you
    a full and satisfied feeling, which can prevent you from overeating or having
    cravings.
  6.    

  7. It boosts your
    energy:
    The caffeine in keto coffee is a stimulant for your
    central nervous system and is known for its ability to increase energy levels
    and reduce feelings of tiredness [1].
  8.    

  9. Supports mental
    clarity:
    Keto coffee supports your cognitive function and mental
    clarity. Some claim that it’s caused by the MCTs in keto coffee, as they are
    converted into ketones, which fuel your brain. However, there’s no scientific
    evidence for this. There is however evidence to suggest that it’s the caffeine
    in coffee which gives a boost in mental clarity and focus [2].

 

SUMMARY

The
ingredients of keto coffee can help you feel full, contribute to weight loss,
boost your energy and support mental clarity.

 

Recipe for
a great keto coffee

 

So far,
you’ve learned what keto coffee is, what the key ingredients are and which
benefits can be ascribed to drinking coffee on keto. As there are endless ways
in which to make a wonderful keto coffee, it’s impossible to give the perfect
recipe for it. However, the basic recipe for a great keto coffee will get you
started. Feel free to give it a personal twist, as long as the ingredients you
use are keto friendly!

 

Ingredients
for 1 keto coffee:

       

  • 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee
    (250 ml)
  •    

  • 1 tbsp MCT oil
  •    

  • 1 tbsp grass-fed
    butter
  •    

  • Optionally: 1 tsp of spices like
    cinnamon or turmeric

 

Preparation

 

       

  1. Brew your coffee as normal. If
    you like strong coffee, prepare your keto coffee strong as well.
  2.    

  3. Put about 250 ml of freshly
    brewed coffee in a blender and add 1 tablespoon of Ghee or grass-fed butter and
    one tablespoon of MCT oil. You can also use a (electric) hand whisk.
  4.    

  5. Optionally you can add spices
    like cinnamon or turmeric to your coffee. You can even add other ingredients,
    as long as they’re keto friendly.
  6.    

  7. Mix it all together until your
    coffee is nice and fluffy.
  8.    

  9. Enjoy!

 

Tip:
do not use cow milk in your keto coffee, as it contains too many carbs. Great
low-carb alternatives however are unsweetened nut and seed milks like almond,
macadamia, coconut, hemp or flax milk.

 

4 healthy
keto coffee tips

 

Although
keto coffee fits perfectly in a keto diet, there are some facts you need to be
aware of before you kick off.

 

       

  1. Use keto coffee in
    moderation:
    We all know that too much of anything just isn’t
    good for anyone. Remember coffee is full of caffeine and you don’t want to
    drink it I moderation. If you’re wondering how many carbs are in keto coffee,
    then you will be happy to hear that it contains zero net carbs!
  2.    

  3. Choose the right
    fats:
    Although healthy fats are at the base of the ketogenic
    diet, choose your fats wisely. MCT oil and grass-fed butter are a great choice
    for your bulletproof coffee.
  4.    

  5. Don’t live off
    bulletproof coffees alone:
    Although some ketonians love keto
    coffees, we don’t recommend living only on bulletproof coffees. Remember to eat
    your veggies and other foods to give your body all the nutrients, vitamins,
    minerals and fibers that you need.
  6.    

  7. Sweeteners: Don’t spoil your
    sweet tooth with all kinds of sweeteners. A bit of erythritol or stevia will
    add some flavor. But try coffee without it and enjoy the real coffee taste
    instead.

 

Conclusion

 

Keto coffee
or bulletproof coffee can be a great way of kickstarting your day and boosting
your energy, while staying in ketosis. It’s easy to make and there are many
ways in which you can give it a personal twist with spices and other keto-friendly
ingredients. Enjoy and have fun.
