Bulletproof Coffee is a staple beverage in a lot of keto diets. I love it and honestly feel like Wonder Woman after I drink a cup.
One of the biggest benefits for me is being able to extend my bulletproof intermittent fast because the fat-filled coffee keeps me satiated until lunchtime.
If you are not using Bulletproof Coffee for fasting and instead would like to add protein or collagen, you can do that as well.
PREP 5 minutes
- 1 ½ cups hot coffee
- 2 tablespoons MCT oil powder or Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil
- 2 tablespoons butter or ghee
1. Pour the hot coffee into the blender.
2. Add the oil powder and butter, and blend until thoroughly mixed and frothy.
3. Pour into a large mug and enjoy.
If you want to add protein to your Bulletproof Coffee, here are a couple of suggestions. If you are intermittent fasting, you don’t want to add protein because it will end your fast. If you aren’t fasting, then try these easy ways to create a more filling breakfast drink:
•Raw egg: To add protein, replace the MCT oil powder with 1 raw egg. Sounds weird, I know, but the egg adds an appealing creamy texture, and although the hot coffee cooks the egg, I promise there will be no hint of cooked proteins.
•Protein and collagen powder: You could also add a scoop or two of protein powder. I like Perfect Keto Collagen, which has a great chocolate flavor that is especially tasty in coffee.
The Keto Collagen Powder contains grass-fed collagen, MCT oil powder, and protein powder. The collagen is a good anti-inflammatory addition.
•Spiced: Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a little sweetener to your Bulletproof mixture for a delicious spiced version.
If you’re new to the keto diet, you will want to start slow with the Brain Octane Oil. It is powerful, so you’ll want to work your way up to 2tablespoons over the course of a few weeks.
