You put WHAT in your coffee?!

Bulletproof coffee; some people swear by this stuff, some people hate it, some people will get really angry when you tell them you drink it (cos you know, arteries and stuff) but it's definitely becoming well known. And if you don't know what it is yet - it's when you add butter and/or MCT oil to your coffee. I'm kind of lukewarm about this stuff, I definitely don't think it is as vital to keto as many sites lead you to believe. I'm not a fan of drinking my calories, and boy does this have calories. Sometimes I just feel like having one, maybe every two months or so, so I came up with a recipe that works for me. This is not the original BulletProofCoffee(TM) or whatever, but it's an approximation. Everyone has their own version of how to make this, this is the one I like. 


  • 30g UNSALTED butter (or salted, if you are into salty coffee, no judgement here)
  • coffee - whichever method you prefer
  • 15g coconut oil
  • 10g cream 
  • boiling water

We use a moka pot for our regular every day coffee, when I'm not drinking cold brew. It's easy to use, and makes damn good coffee. Our pot makes enough for two people in one go. We have two french presses, two moka pots, a filter coffee machine and a Delonghi espresso machine. And our next purchases are a chemex brewer and a Nespresso machine. I'm going to need a "coffee room" in my next house. 

Once your coffee of choice is brewed, pour it into a jug together with the butter, cream, and coconut oil. Depending on the coffee you use (filter coffee won't need extra water), add the boiling water up to your cup size. My mug holds 350 ml. 

Mix well with an immersion blender. This leaves the coffee nice and frothy. Easy. This is quite high calorie so I don't usually eat food when I have one, but this leads me back to drinking my calories. I prefer actual food.
