The Best Keto Butter Coffee

60 ratings

If you aren't much of a breakfast person but want a Keto beverage that can keep you satiated until lunchtime, then this coffee recipe is perfect for you. The addition of butter and coconut oil makes for this ultra-creamy, rich, delicious, and almost velvety coffee. This Keto butter coffee is the BEST because it only needs 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to prepare a fantastic cup of coffee.

Why add fats to your coffee?

In this recipe, we are using butter and coconut oil. Alternatively, you can use ghee and cocoa butter. Having a high-fat source in your morning coffee is a great way to maintain ketosis all day. This high-fat coffee will keep you satiated for a couple of hours, which is perfect if you are trying to lose some weight. Another benefit of adding butter and coconut oil to your coffee is the boost of energy it provides. This coffee may keep you alert, productive, and focused.

What kind of coffee is best for this recipe?

We have used freshly brewed coffee for this recipe. However, you can also use espresso or instant coffee. Just make sure that your coffee is strong because the added fats will soften the coffee's flavor.

Can you flavor this Keto coffee?

Absolutely! You can add vanilla extract, almond extract, or spices to the butter and coconut oil, whisk until the fats soften, then serve it over the coffee. You can also sweeten it by adding stevia to the brewed coffee.

    this was a perfect fat snack to fill in some blanks and not add but one carb. I used a little of my cinnamon vanilla SF syrup

      I love this coffee. I just mix everything together and sometimes I add a little of cocoa powder, vanilla and stevia. I whip it up in my Magic Bullet. Delicious and filling.

        My “ Bullet Catch” coffee uses The Magic Coffee Company brand Bullet Catch Brazilian coffee(6oz) Organic grass-fed unsalted butter( 2tbsp) and 1 tbsp high quality MCT oil. I melt the butter and MCT oil in a microwave. Add to the fresh brewed coffee and blend in a small blender. This makes it easier to digest with much less stomach issues. 450 calories appx. 50 g fat.

            I pour a little hot dark coffee into my mug and add my unsalted butter, mct oil and a little non sugar sweetener then I use my hand held frother When it’s the way I like it that’s when I add the rest of the coffee ☕️ It’s delightful and filling.

              Best to make sure your butter is unsalted :)

                I used salted sweet cream butter and I didn’t even need to use my sweetener. 🙌 Perfect, love it! Going to be a breakfast staple now. And….. best of all it is quick and simple.

              Excellent! I drink a lot of coffe. I always have butter and whipping cream on hand. What an easy way to add fat when meal plan comes up short! Its a keeper! I am waiting for MCT oil to be delivered. I am so excited!

                I’m confused…. In video it shows butter and whipping cream. The ingredients state butter and coconut oil.

                  Whipping cream is used as a topping, kinda like a latte. Well that’s how I see it….

                  Agreed video vs ingredients is incorrect

                I drink this everyday! I use SF davinci Vanilla syrup with grass fed butter and tbsp of mct. I use a frother and I'm a happy camper.

                  Does this break fast?

                    Yes. Anything that alters your metabolic state to include ingesting and digesting fats will break a fast.

                    Yes, because it has 225 calories. Only under 50 calories would not break a fast.

                    Yes. Only black coffee would not break a fast.

                    I think it does but helps stay in ketosis despite that.

                  After I froth it I add in some Torani SF syrup. Look forward to this EVERY morning. Just switched to MCT oil. Way smoother than coconut oil.
