This tasty low-carb coffee 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! :-)

Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

Tips:
  • Instead of regular coffee, you can use Swiss water process decaf coffee, black tea or even your favourite herbal tea. Check out this recipe for Tibetan Butter Tea.
  • 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 60 °C/ 140 °F. 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.
  • Make sure you use hydrolysed gelatin (I like Great Lakes Gelatin), as regular gelatin will clump like glue.

Instructions

  1. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Reserve the egg whites for another use. Ultimate Keto Coffee
  2. Place everything into a blender (or use an immersion blender) and pulse until smooth and frothy. That's it - done! Ultimate Keto Coffee Enjoy! Ultimate Keto Coffee

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.
  • 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 2:13:85 (calories from carbs:protein:fat) which makes it perfect for the ketogenic diet.
  • It's very sating and great for breakfast!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hello.  I love your blog & app!  Your recipes and information are priceless!  I just started Keto a couple weeks ago, but haven't had much success.  I currently drink coffee every morning with heavy organic cream, 1 Tablespoon organic MCT, 1-2 Tablespoons of Kerrigold butter. Sometimes I add Erythritol and stevia, some days I don't...I love it both ways.  I drink my coffee from about 7am - 9:30, then have breakfast.  Today I'm having your yummy pumpkin cream cheese pocket...LOVE IT!  My question is that you say you don't drink buttletproof coffee every single day, but you said a healthier alternative is this recipe for Ultimate Keto Coffee...but it's very similar.  I'm just wondering why you say you wouldn't have Bulletproof coffee everyday but you would this one?  I do drink the coffee I described every day and I am not losing any weight/fat.  In fact, I have been gaining and I am very concerned. I don't know what I am doing wrong.  Anyway, I see you don't give advice, but just wondering why you would not drink Bulletproof coffee every day?  Thank you so much for sharing all your knowledge and wonderful recipes with us!  You are amazing and I am grateful to have found you.

Gretchen, thank you so much for your kind words!   I'm glad you like the pockets - the dough is just perfect with any filling!
This recipe is similar, but compared to BPC which is pure fat, this recipe is more nutritious. Apart from fats, you'll get protein from collagen, and egg yolks will provide fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K), B12, folate and choline. I think nutritionally it's quite similar to a smoothie 😊 Having said that, both BPC and this recipe might not be the best option if you are trying to lose weight and hit a plateau. If your weight is stalling, then I suggest you cut down on added fats (coconut oil and butter), at least for 1-2 weeks and see if that makes a difference. You can still have a cup or two with a dash of heavy cream but I'd avoid the added fats from butter and coconut oil (or MCT oil). I hope this helps!

we have strict dairy rules here in Canada and can't get grass fed butter is there a good substitute that still has some nutrition and not just empty fat thanks

Reply

Hi Tony, you can just skip it - I wouldn't use more coconut oil as it may cause digestive issues. Or you can add a dash of heavy whopping cream or coconut milk.

Reply

Can you use the egg whites as well?

Reply

Yes you can! I use whole eggs in smoothies: Chocolate Keto Smoothie

Reply

I have a food allergy to egg yokes, would this still work with out them?
Thank you!

Reply

Absolutely, you can skip them!

Reply

Oh my word! I was SUPER skeptical about this. The thought of the egg yolks had me squimish but I'm so glad I tried it!! It's amazingly delicious and filling! Thanks for helping me find my new favorite morning drink!!

Reply

Thank you for your lovely feedback 😊 I know that feeling, I used to be just as skeptical!

Hello,  I am completely new to KETO.  My husband and I been doing the program for about a month.  I saw this recipe and give it a try.  I must say it is a win-win for me.  It is my breakfast (5:30am) every morning.  I have a question, it says that if you are IF or FF you must avoid some of the ingredients to feed your need.  What are those ingredients?
I do not add any type of sugar on my coffee, also I do not add coconut milk or heavy whip cream but 2 tbsp of half and half.
It is half and half ok?

Reply

Hello, if you want to use this coffee as part of your fast, you may need to  avoid the collagen and egg yolks, or omit some of the fats added to lower the overall calories per serving.

Reply

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I have never heard d of pasterizing my eggs at home until now. I also appreciate the fact you shared some sunflower seed flour based recipes that are low carb! Since I have a nut allergy, eating low carb has been a little difficult since most recipes call for almond flour.

I must admit the raw eggs scared me too, but you can't
even taste them. Really enjoyed this Keto coffee !
Great recipe !!!

Reply

I Love you! and this delicious creation hehe, Thank you so much for all your knowledge and hard work in all your recipes. I had this after a workout and it made me want to do another haha!

Reply

Thank you so much Casey!

Hi Martina,
I just realized this is a drink I used to have as a breakfast replacement. I use one whole egg, more spices and heat it briefly in a saucepan just until it starts to thicken like a custard.  No worries about salmonella.  It usually keeps me full for hours.  I added your gelatin and MCT and it is really decadent.  Thanks!

Reply

Thanks for the tips Jill!

Reply

To add protein for after a workout could you just use the whole egg?

Reply

Yes you could do that!

Reply

Would this be considered breakfast?

Reply

Yes, it's nutritious enough to be a complete meal.

Hi Martina.
I'm having a little bit of a challenge with which coconut oil to use. I had previously used one,  but ran out and failed to save the jar for reference purposes. Could you tell me which coconut oil I should be using for my coffee?
I do remember it not having a 'coconut' smell. Does that mean I used the wrong coconut oil? Not sure if smelling coconuts while drinking my coffee sounds very appealing. But I do feel like the coconut oil I did use helped me with my weight...
Thank you,
Yvette

Hi Yvette, I live in the UK and like Lucy Bee. If you live in the US, here are my tips, including coconut oil: ketodietapp.com/recommended/Products.aspxFilter
If the product had no smell, it was deodorised. I would personally avoid it as in most cases, there is a chemical process involved to remove the odour. I use virgin coconut oil and I can't smell it in my coffee at all. Or if you don't like it, you can try MCT oil which is without odour.

Reply

Sorry, I mean the gold label virgin.

Reply

What are your thoughts on Tropical Traditions  extra virgin coconut oil?   My friends swesr by it, and it seems pretty good.   I could eat it with a spoon because it is solid at room temperature and it doesn't really feel oily in my mouth.

Reply

I'm afraid I can't help here because I haven't tried it - I would just be guessing by Amazon reviews.

Reply

Hi Jon,
I can personally vouch for Tropical Traditions coconut oil. All of them are wonderful! The gold label is the virgin, hand processed, smells & tastes like coconut. They also have expeller pressed (no chems used). They are spendy, so watch for sales! Wilderness Family Naturals also has a good coconut oil, both virgin and expeller pressed. Azure Standard (if they deliver by drop in your area--for free), they carry WFN coconut oil at a better price. Hope that helps.

I tried it this morning and was nervous to drink it and I think it was because it contained the 3 egg yolks. NOT so bad! I like the taste, I did opt out on the gelatin and added vanilla flavor(zero carbs). Thank you so much for sharing this!

Reply

Glad you enjoyed! 😊

Reply

hank you so much.  I was looking for a way to get more fat in my diet.  Gong straight from school to work makes this hard.  I can put the ingredients in mason jars and get coffee at work.  Thank you so much.

Reply

I'm glad you like it! 😊

Reply

I don't understand why people do all of this when you can just use heavy whipping cream...and add other nutrients if necessary....

Reply

This doesn't taste the same way and has several other benefits. You don't need to make coffee this way - you can just use cream if you prefer that.

Reply

This recipe sounds decadent...yum!  I've been drinking BPC for 2 months and feel really great.  I typically don't need to eat until about 1:00 and have tons of brain capacity and energy.  I did see on your blog where you listed BPC every morning as #10 on your posting of "Weight Loss Keto Mistakes".  For us coffee drinkers who supplement this as a meal, I'm just curious how BPC each morning is different than what you are recommending in this recipe?  Thank you in advance.

Reply

Thank you Lonni, the "regular" BPC is pure usually fat + coffee. What did in this recipe is that I added protein and micronutrients so it's a proper meal.

Reply

Hi Martina.
Can i try this without the gelatine? And is this a cold coffee ? Can i blend all and heat it before drinking ? Or will that cook the yolks ? I don't get unsweteend gelatine here, all the brands have added dextrose.

Reply

Hi Priya, yes, you definitely can. In fact, on most day, I make this without the gelatine, added fats and sweeteners (just coffee, egg yolks and coconut milk). I wouldn't reheat it because I think it may curdle with the egg yolks in. So rather than that, I'd use hot coffee - don't worry, it won't cook the egg yolks 😊

Reply

I have an adverse reaction to coconut oil / mct oil. It's gives me insane acne around my mouth and chin. I currently am replacing MCT in my coffee with raw cacao butter (1tbsp cacao butter, 1tbsp grassfed butter, collagen, and chaga extract). Is that sufficient? I'm pretty bummed I can't use the MCT.

Reply

Yes, that sounds great! If you have an issue with coconut oil or MCT oil, fats like ghee, cacao butter or regular butter are great alternatives.

Reply

Tried this recipe today although slightly modified. I was afraid of the egg yolks and how that would interfere with my IF so only used one. I added only a tsp of gelatin as I'm not sure if what I have is hydrolysed or not. I used tbsp and half of organic coconut oil and instead of erythritol I used NuStevia and no cinnamon. SF Caramel syrup instead and heavy cream. Pretty tasty. Thank you! Maybe tomorrow I'll do 3 egg yolks. 😊

Reply

Thank you Kim, glad you liked it! 😊 If you use gelatine, it should say "collagen" or "hydrolysed" - otherwise it's the one that thickens. This coffee is way to nutritious to be used for the "fasting window" but you can use it as your first meal.

Reply

Hi Martina, Would this make a good post-cardio workout drink? I have been doing keto for 5 weeks now. I haven't got any more weight to lose, but love all the benefits of keto so far...I do cardio for about 25-30 mins 5 times a week. I would usually have a protein shake (22g of protein, 2.2g carbs) with 250ml unsweetened almond milk. I am thinking of replacing this with your keto coffee, to increase the fat and decrease the protein...what do you think? Many thanks in advance for your advice.

Reply

Hi Helen, I think it's better to get something with more protein and maybe some carbs. I'd avoid too much fat after exercising. Fat is generally good for you, however, if you eat it after exercise, it may impair nutrient absorption and muscle recovery.

Reply

Thanks for this recipe Martina.  I love all the different iterations of fat-fueled coffees on the internet.
I wanted to add my take for those who cannot have caffeine and for those concerned about raw eggs.  First I have to agree with you that raw eggs are fine when they are high quality, but I understand the fear some may have.  I'm sorry if this reply is long...I just wanted to share another option for folks.
Since I cannot have caffeine (coffee or tea), I make a dandelion tea or medicinal mushroom [quote][i]tea[/quote]- both of these sort of resemble coffee. My recipe for the mushroom tea uses 2 tbsp chaga pieces (small chunks sort of the size of rice or lentils), 5-6 medium reishi slices, a small piece of rehmannia root, 1 tbsp or so of green stevia leaf (the dried herb), a 1/2 cinnamon stick or some chai spice & any other herbs I feel will complement these, all added to 2 litres of water). I put the 2 litres of water and all the herbs in a crockpot on low overnight (the mushrooms need some time to extract all the medicines from them). This way I have lots of tea to use for several elixirs.
Then I make a dairy-free "cream" of sorts modified from this recipe: http://healingnaturallybybee.com/fake-cream/.  I modify it by not always adding the stevia, using hot almond milk in place of the water and only using egg yolks (my preference as I don't digest whites as well and I find when this recipe is warmed or cooked I can taste the egg white - but I am a super taster so each to their own here). I also play around with the quantities of egg and butter to suit my taste and have also used cacao butter and ghee in place of butter and its been good. I also don't add the ice cubes as I make a large amount (usually a double-batch) and store it in the fridge or freezer. NOTE: because of the gelatin in this, if you store it in the fridge, it will gel on you - don't worry, when its heated it will go back to a liquid state.
Once I've made these two things, I then take out a big pot and put into it about 2-3 cups of tea, 1-2 cups of this cream and a litre or so of half-almond milk, half coconut milk, along with some sugar-free chocolate, cocoa (or cocoa and cacao butter), sweetener, spices (like chai spice), flavorings like vanilla or caramel, salt (I always add a little salt to most sweets, it balances the flavor)...basically anything you think will be good in a [quote]mocha[/quote]type drink (I even put small amounts of maca and other medicinal mushroom powders to up the nutritional value - but just a little, to avoid bitterness).  I usually whisk this all on low, just until everything is nice and warm, creamy and mixed.  This makes a large amount that I can drink throughout the week and also "cooks" the egg yolk, though I have never had chunks of egg yolk because it has been blended ahead of time in making the [quote]cream[/quote].
I also make a version without chocolate using pumpkin, a little turmeric and spices to make a sort of [quote]pumpkin latte[/quote].
Anything I don't use up, extra cream or tea etc. I just freeze in ice cube trays or muffin tins to use for another time.
If someone wanted to use this cream with coffee they could likely still make it ahead of time and just "blend" it into their coffee from a cold state (I wouldn't whisk it as it may be chunky from the gelatin if not using the hydolysed stuff).
Cheers.

Thank you for your insights Melissa! I love dandelion "coffee" and anything turmeric. Will have to give the mushroom powder a try!

I either have a
milky style = coffee shot, cream, coconut milk, organic virgin coconut oil blended or
expresso =  shot coffee 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, 1 teaspoon cream
Enjoy both styles
I'm still on the hunt for grass fed organic butter

Reply

I love the sound of both! 😊

Reply

just found out coffee shop close to my work sells a sure shot coffee ordered one today was good as I didn't make one this morning their version 2 shots of expresso, butter, coconut oil

Reply

I noticed that there are quite a few places making "butter coffee" where I live too 😊

Hi can someone please help as I just can't find a definitive answer. I have planned out my diet but just need to make sure what I'm doing is ok and will actually allow me in to ketosis. The plan is :
7am ish - Breakfast ; Keto/BP Coffee
10/10.30 - whey protein shake (1g net carb per 100g)
12/12.30  -  Keto/BP Coffee
5pm onwards keto diet foods, protein meats etc, veg maintaining 20 net carbs max (initially)
I have probably a minimum of 60 pound to shift, I'm 5'8 and weigh 250 pound plus. Cheers J

Reply

Hi Jason, it depends if you manage to get all your nutrients at / after 5 pm. BPC and whey protein will ensure enough protein and fat but you may not be getting enough micronutrients - you may want to add supplements if that's the case.

Reply

2 questions : Do you use hot coffee? And is this a hot drink? i.e. Will it still be hot after blending with the other ingredients ? Or do you drink it over ice? Room temp?

Reply

Yes, I use hot coffee but the drink is not that a hot - all the other ingredients cool it down so it's just warm. And yes, I think it will work with ice too but you will need to let it chill a bit. I actually drank it cold once because I couldn't finish it and kept half of it in the fridge 😊
