Now for the fun part of keto coffee – making the coffee! The start to keto coffee is just like making your regular cup of coffee in the morning, but then it has a few changes.
Since you are adding butter and coconut oil (unless you choose MCT oil), you need to blend it up so that everything is smooth. Here are some basic instructions for making your cup of keto coffee:
Brew Your Coffee
With Bulletproof coffee, there are only certain types of coffee beans allowed, but there are no rules with keto coffee. Just double check the nutritional content if your coffee is flavored, since some of those have a little sugar or carbs. You can either use a Keurig machine or regular coffee maker; there are no strict rules here!
Choose a Method of Blending
Since you need to blend the ingredients, you should then decide which method you want to go with. You can use your full-size blender if you want, though it is rather large for just a small amount of ingredients. Many people choose to use a small-size blender, like a Ninja blender, since it is the perfect size for one cup of coffee and the added ingredients.
If you want to blend it right in the cup, you can do that with an immersion blender or even an electric whisk. This keeps you from dirtying a blender every morning and makes everything go much faster.
Add the Ingredients
While your coffee is brewing, it is a good idea to start adding your other ingredients to the blender. The amounts you use are up to you, but starting with this list is a good option:
- 1 Tbsp. Grass-Fed Butter
- 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
If you want the coffee a little creamier, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream as well. Add the ingredients to the blender, pour in your coffee, then blend it until smooth. This shouldn’t take long since it is a small amount of oil and butter.
