Ultimate Keto Coffee

15. December 2013|Martina|30

I decided to give you all a quick peak into the upcoming update of KetoDiet, KetoDiet Basic and my Kindle book! This recipe is one of many more you will see. Please note that if you already have my Kindle book, it may take up to 4-5 weeks before you will be able to download the new update. The update for KetoDiet and KetoDiet Basic should be available soon after Christmas.

This recipe 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! :-)

Ultimate Keto Coffee - the best way to start your day with healthy fats! (this one without egg yolks and gelatine)

Preparation time:

 5 minutes

Nutritional values per serving:

Total Carbs4.3grams
Fiber1.3grams
Net Carbs3.1grams
Protein15.2grams
Fat45.6grams
of which Saturated29.7grams
Energy474kcal
Magnesium211mg (53% RDA)
Potassium407mg (20% EMR)

Net carbs of ingredients: coffee (0 g), egg yolks (1.8 g), cream or coconut milk (0.8 g), coconut oil (0 g), butter or ghee (0 g), gelatin (0 g), cinnamon (0.4 g), stevia (0 g) // Macronutrient ratio: Calories from carbs (2.5%), protein (12.6%), fat (84.9%)

Ingredients (makes 1 serving):

  • 1 cup brewed coffee (or black tea - check out this recipe for Tibetan Butter Tea)
  • 1 tbsp organic coconut oil or MCT oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted grass-fed butter or ghee
  • 3 egg yolks (don't worry, they won't cook)
  • 1 tbsp of gelatin, hydrolysed which does not cause liquids to gel
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 3-5 drops of stevia or a teaspoon of Erythritol or Swerve or other healthy low-carb sweetener from this list (I personally don't use any)
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk or heavy whipping cream

If you want to try this recipe for intermittent fasting / fat fasting, you may want to avoid some of the ingredients fo fit your needs.
Due to the slight risk of Salmonella or other food-borne illness, you should use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell.

Instructions:

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 a very sating and great for breakfast!

I didn't put the gelatine but it's amazing with the eggs. I prefer egg coffee a lot more to BP coffee. Thanks for sharing, can't wait for the update!

So, I was a bit hesitant but tried it with all the ingredients but gelatine (didn't have the hydrolysed one). IT WAS AWESOME!! I didn't taste any egg or butter, it was just pure creamy heaven. I think I just found my favourite coffee recipe!

Thank you! I love using egg yolks, it makes it very creamy. Many people are just afraid to try it.

Hi. Thanks for the recipe. Would you consider adding any ingredient suggested on your blog to your app? For example, this recipe calls for MCT oil, but it did not see that in the iPad app. Thanks.

Thank you, Sean! I'll keep adding new ingredients whenever there is a new update - I'll also include MCT oil. For now, you can use coconut oil if you create your own recipe. The nutritional values will be the same. The AppStore is now closed during Christmas, so the new update will be available in about 14 days.

marina,  Is this recipe in the KetoDiet App?  I was looking for it then realized I had seen it here. I make my tea like this but without the eggs.  I may give this a try though.  It would be a good way for my husband to start the day since he loves his coffee but doesn't like to eat breakfast.  Jen

Yes, it is also in the app - I think it's in the "extra low-carb" package. I posted this recipe here before the 20 new recipes were added to the app after Christmas… just a little teaser Smile

I think leto coffee is either loved or hated - not everyone likes the idea or raw eggs in it. I thought it cannot be good before I actually tried it - so creamy! You can skip the eggs and the gelatine and just use coffee (or black tea) + coconut oil and butter + stevia and coconut milk - that's the way I drink it most days and never feel hungry until lunch.

Wow! I am not a breakfast person, BUT, I do have to have my coffee in the morning.  Not to wake up, but more out of coffee, news, and quiet,  before the house wakes up and goes into the normal rat race, Super mom day. This is not only delicious, but a great way to start my morning.

It's a staple low-carb breakfast meal in our house! Smile I usually make it just with coconut oil, butter and coconut milk because I'm not that hungry in the morning. Even this keeps me sated until lunch. Sometimes, I'll add the egg yolks and gelatine but only when I'm hungry. I don't usually use any sweetener, because the coconut milk adds some sweetness.

Is there a drop down menu in the app planner for all the recipes you post?  I am trying to simply add keto coffee to my planner and I am not seeing it.  Do I have to manually enter egg yolks, coconut oil, etc?
Thanks
Vee

Hi Gee,

Apart from recipes that are not mine (guest posts), all recipes can be added to the planner (apart from certain home-made ingredients like pumpkin puree that won't make sense to have them as meals).

This recipe is included in the app but you may not see in your recipes it, as it's in one of the additional recipe packages. I didn't think of this and I will put the "add it option" to this recipe, too.

Thanks,
Martina

This sounds delicious!  I'm allergic to coconut oil, can you suggest a substitute?

Thank you Lynda! Yes, you can try just butter or ghee instead - they also contain some MCTs Smile

Thank you for a great recipe, I really wanna try this one out as I don't like eating early in the morning! I was just wondering though if I could use whole eggs instead of only egg yolks? Feel so bad for throwng the egg whites! Also, do I have to use the "creamy" part of the coconut milk or can I also use the runny part of it? Thank you again! Laughing

Hi Rita, I haven't tried it with whole eggs but I have a link in this post and one of those 3 recipes uses whole eggs, so I think it would work. When it comes to coconut milk, I use Aroy-D which is a brand that never "creams" - it contains no guar gum and tastes absolutely delicious. If I was to use other brand that "creams" in the fridge, I would probably shake it to get both the runny and the creamy part Smile

Great, thank you! Laughing I will try with whole eggs and see how it goes! Another question I have is whether it's possible to do this recipe with raw cocoa powder so it becomes a kind of a hot chocolate? I know cocoa powder has so many benefits and is a real superfood, so I really wanna use that when I can! But I've heard you can't use higher temperature than 42 C when using it so the nutrients won't get ruined (this probably applies to the eggs as well so they don't get cooked?), so I was wondering what is your suggestion for doing this recipe with cocoa powder and controlling the temperature? Do you use boiling water or very hot or medium heat?

Martina @ KetoDiet

I think some nutrients are always "destroyed" when you use high temperature (this applies to almost all foods) but I wouldn't worry about it so much. If you use cocoa in baking, it's almost always at high temperatures. When it comes to eggs, there are actually nutrients that are more bioavailable when the eggs are cooked. Other foods that are better when cooked are e.g. carrots. I love the idea of making "keto mocha coffee" and I will try it when making the it next time. Thanks!Smile

I tried this one out and it was great, didn't taste the eggs or anything as I had expected at first. I added 1 table spoon of raw cacao powder which gave it more of a mocha taste which was absolutely delicious. However, can I store this one in the fridge and drink for next morning or will some of the nutrients be destroyed by such low temperatures?

I love mocha! Smile The nutrients won't be destroyed but I'm not sure about the taste and consistency. You may need to blend it again when you take it from the fridge.

This might be a silly question but do I have to make this fresh every time or could it be some sort of iced coffee that I keep in the fridge for a couple of days at a time?

Martina @ KetoDiet

Hi Marcela, it's not a silly question at all! I would say it will be ok up to about 3 days (careful with raw eggs), but I'm not sure about the taste. How about you make the mixture in advance without the egg yolks and add them just before you drink it? It will create a nice foam and takes almost no time to prepare Smile

How do you arrive at the totals for the following? potassium 407 mg and magnesium 211 mg.  I calculated all the ingredients and I only come up with 86 mg of potassium and 20 mg magnesium using the following ingredients:

1 cup brewed coffee   
coconut oil 1 tbsp 13g
Organic Ghee Clarified Butter  1 tbsp  15g
1 tbsp of gelatin, hydrolysed   1 tbsp  7g
heavy cream  2 tbs  30g    Potassium = 22.3 mg Magnesium = 2.1 mg
egg yolk  3-large  51g    Potassium = 57 mg   Magnesium = 18 mg
½ tsp cinnamon  1/2 tsp  1.3g   Potassium = 5.5mg

Hi Josefina, thank you for notifying me. I thought it was wrong but then I searched again (using the USDA database) and I got to the same result. I can see that the most of it comes from coffee which could vary (~ 270 mg of potassium per cup of espresso). I guess this depends on the coffee you use. The USDA database is supposed to be very accurate - unfortunately, they are completely wrong when it comes to food guidelines / food pyramid.

Of course, it's important to note that the caffeine in the coffee leaches magnesium out of the body, so while there may be 211 mg going in, some is coming back out due to the caffeine.

Martina @ KetoDiet

Very good point, Sue! Too much caffeine can lead to magnesium deficiency.

I'm allergic to egg, what else could one use instead of the egg yolks?

Hi Annette, I think I would just skip the egg. In some recipes, you can use ground chia seeds instead of eggs but I wouldn't recommend it in this one.

Hi Martina,

First-Thank you for such an excellent resource.  I'm looking forward to your products becoming available for Android users.  

My question-Do you have an article about Intermittent Fasting? I did a  search and could not find one.  

Thanks for your help!

Thank you for your kind words! I don't have anything detailed about IF on my blog yet but I have  it in my todo list as one of the posts for the end of this month or beginning of next month. I will, however, post a guide on the Fat Fast very soon. It's done and waiting in the queue to be posted Smile
