I decided to give you all a quick peak into the upcoming update of KetoDiet and KetoDiet Basic! This recipe is one of many more you will see.
It's is inspired by the famous Bulletproof coffee and Egg coffee. I'm going to show you how you can easily add healthy fats in your diet, boost ketone bodies and lose more body fat!
Blending coconut oil or butter with coffee may sound odd to many of you. In fact, you will be surprised how creamy and delicious it is! If you blend it well, there will be no oil floating on top. Once you try it, you will never go back to your regular coffee! :-)

If you want to try this recipe for intermittent fasting or fat fasting, you may need to avoid some of the ingredients to fit your needs.
If a recipe calls for raw eggs and you are concerned about the potential risk of Salmonella, you can make it safe by using pasteurized eggs. To pasteurize eggs at home, simply pour enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs. Heat to about 140 F / 60 C. Using a spoon, slowly place the eggs into the saucepan. Keep the eggs in the water for about 3 minutes. This should be enough to pasteurize the eggs and kill any potential bacteria. Let the eggs cool down and store in the fridge for 6-8 weeks.
Place everything into a blender and pulse until smooth. That's it - done!
Make sure you use hydrolysed gelatin (I like Great Lakes Gelatin), as regular gelatin will clump like glue.
What makes my coffee blend healthy:
- Organic coconut oil / MCT oil will help you increase your fat intake and sate your appetite. MCTs in coconut oil boost ketone bodies and will help you burn fat.
- Adding healthy fats like butter / ghee is another great way to up fat intake on a ketogenic diet.
- Organic pastured egg yolks are a great source of fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Although there are additional health benefits of eating raw egg yolks, you should generally be picky when eating raw eggs. You can find out more at MarksDailyApple.com.
- Gelatin is known to have many health benefits such as improving immunity and hormone balance, healing leaky gut and maintaining healthy skin, hair and joints.
- Cinnamon is great for blood sugar control and may help people with diabetes.
- The macronutrient ratio of this recipe is 2:11:87 (calories from carbs:protein:fat) which makes it perfect for the ketogenic diet.
- It's very sating and great for breakfast!
