Homemade Bulletproof Coffee

Have you tried making homemade bulletproof coffee before? If the answer is yes, great; if the answer is no, I strongly suggest you try it as soon as possible.

In fact, the first time I drank Bulletproof Coffee, I really liked it! It has a unique flavor and is really appetizing, in addition to providing numerous health benefits.

What is Bulletproof Coffee?

Bulletproof coffee is a popular keto breakfast drink originally promoted by Dave Asprey.

This coffee can be used in place of regular coffee or coffee lattes.

It is creamy and smooth as a latte coffee but does not contain any sugar, carbs or milk.

Bulletproof coffee is also known as butter coffee, MCT coffee, or keto coffee. It's just regular coffee, but with added fat.

It is one of the best coffees that many people who follow a keto or paleo diet prefer. In your opinion, why all this? Simply put, the fats in Bulletproof Coffee can make you feel fuller for longer and help you boost ketosis if you're on a ketogenic diet.

Why Should I drink Bulletproof Coffee?

We all know that when you follow a keto diet, your body will lack carbohydrates and will not be able to produce glucose as an energy source.

In this case, your body uses ketones, which can be absorbed by your muscles or brain as an alternative source.

So, by feeding your body the fatty acids found in bulletproof coffee (homemade ), your body can generate ketones quickly, which is important for:

  • Keeping your energy levels steady.
  • Feeling fulfilled and not hungry.
  • Increasing your focus and mind clarity.
  • Boosts fat burning &  metabolism
  • Increase weight loss faster.

Homemade Bulletproof Coffee is coffee that's rich in high-quality fats, like butter and MCT oil.

MCT oil, or Medium Chain Triglyceride, is made up of three medium-chain fatty acids.

It means they are swiftly broken down and absorbed by your body to form ketones, which are your source of energy in ketosis.

MCT oil in bulletproof coffee directly enters your liver to produce Ketone bodies, a type of fuel produced by the liver from stored fat.

This means that on a keto diet, Homemade Bulletproof Coffee aids weight loss by providing a quick and consistent amount of fat to provide your body energy and satiety.

Why you will love this recipe!

How Do You Make Homemade Bulletproof Coffee? 

The Ingredients

Brewed coffee – You can use either fresh or instant coffee in this recipe. It's entirely up to you...

Butter – Unsalted butter, at room temperature. Grass-fed butter is preferred, and regular butter can also be used. But to keep it dairy-free, use ghee.

MCT Oil – This is the secret ingredient in our homemade Bulletproof Coffee!

Because MCT oil is significantly easier to digest than other oils, and when combined with butter, it keeps you satiated for longer.

The Instructions

1- In a high-speed blender, combine all of the listed ingredients and blend until smooth and super frothy!

2- Transfer into a tall glass and enjoy immediately.

Can You Drink It Everyday?

Of course Yes! Bulletproof coffee is great to enjoy daily as part of a balanced diet, especially if it is homemade.

Also, if you need an energy boost, have this coffee twice a week.

For a unique warmth, I like to drink it first thing in the morning.

Can You Make It Ahead Of Time?

It's ideal to drink this drink as soon as possible after it's made. The coconut oil will solidify if left to cool.

Things You Can Add For Extra Taste

To add some flavor to your homemade bulletproof coffee, I suggest the following:

A pinch of pink salt.

I've been using pink salt in my Bulletproof Coffee for months and I love it! I enjoy the flavor, and it's a convenient way to obtain some sodium and trace minerals every day. It comes highly recommended! 

A pinch of ground cinnamon on top

This is more delicious. It pairs well with coffee and grass-fed butter to give keto coffee a special flavor.

Cocoa Powder

Cocoa powder, in my opinion, makes Bulletproof keto coffee bitter, so it should be avoided.

Stevia Drops

If you are looking for a keto-friendly sweetener, this is the best option.

Collagen Peptides

I've been incorporating them into my coffee recently, and I'm enjoying them so far.

Sugar-free Syrups

Adding any kind of flavored sugar-free syrup to your coffee can transform it into a morning pleasure unlike any other.

But I recommend you don’t overuse sugar-free syrups because the sweeteners contained may stall your weight loss.

Storing and Freezing Bulletproof Coffee

You can store the bulletproof coffee to enjoy later only if you intend to enjoy it frosted.

For storage, pour the coffee into a large jug and place it in the refrigerator until completely cooled.

Bulletproof coffee can be kept for up to two weeks in the refrigerator only.

Before serving, be sure to mix it well.

To freeze the bulletproof coffee, pour it into a shallow container or small ice cube trays and freeze for up to 6 months.

When you're ready to enjoy it, put it in a blender and stir until smooth and incorporated.

What Tools Are Needed to Make Homemade Bulletproof Coffee? 

Blender – The most effective way for making your butter coffee extra frothy.

Milk frother – For making Keto Coffee on the go.

Glass insulated mugs – Of course not required, but these keep my Bulletproof Coffee warm for a couple of hours!
