When you want coffee, this is the best way to enjoy it! This keto bulletproof coffee recipe is a boost of healthy fats your body needs.
Delicious Low Carb Bulletproof Coffee
Have you heard of bulletproof coffee? It’s a way of drinking coffee and getting a boost of healthy fats at the same time. The idea is that it helps you consume the fats and nutrients your body needs without having to eat an entire meal (or make a separate shake).
I personally love starting out my day with a hot cup of coffee (especially a seasonal drink like this keto pumpkin spice latte). Sometimes, I’m just not in the mood for an entire breakfast. That’s why I love enjoying bulletproof coffee – no creamer needed!
This recipe is so tasty, and there are lots of ways you can customize it too!
Today, I’m going to share the most basic recipe for you. Then, I’ll even give you a few ideas and ways you can make it taste like your favorite coffee-shop drink.
One thing I have to admit about this drink is that it is not sweet. If you prefer some coffee with your creamer, you might want to adjust this recipe a bit. It tastes more like coffee than cream.
I’ll share some ideas and ways you can sweeten it later in this post too.
Ingredients To Make Bulletproof Coffee Recipe
There are just a few basic ingredients in this coffee recipe. First, I want to share some information about the ingredients – including which kinds to use.
- The main ingredient is coffee. You can use any flavor you want! I love using coffee beans that were roasted with other flavors, it’s always a different taste and experience.
- Next, you need some collagen. Collagen powder is a protein supplement that can help improve your skin and joint health.
- The next ingredient is butter. You have a choice with this one. You can either use your favorite butter or you can use the same amount and substitute for coconut oil, MCT oil, or ghee. All of these choices provide an excellent source of healthy fats that you need in the coffee.
- Then, you need a low-carb and keto-friendly milk source. I used almond milk, but you can also use full-fat coconut milk instead.
- Don’t forget the cinnamon. Then, for a little flavor, I added a bit of cinnamon!
- The key to a creamy cup of bulletproof coffee is a blender. You can try to stir this together with a spoon, but it won’t mix together as well. Trust me, if you use a blender (even something as small as a Magic Bullet), it will combine it and make it taste better.
- If you want to cut the bitterness down a bit, I suggest adding a sprinkle or dash of your favorite sugar substitute.

This bulletproof coffee recipe is a really simple way to start your day (and keep you feeling full).
First, brew your coffee. Some people like to use a French Press, others enjoy the pour-over method. Even a Keurig or drip coffee pot will work.
Next, add all of the ingredients to your cup. Leave enough room in your coffee for the ingredients (fill it about ¾ full).
Use an immersion blender (or pour it all into a small blender like the Magic Bullet). Mix it together until it is nice and creamy.
What To Serve With Bulletproof Coffee
This coffee will fill you up, so you probably won’t want anything too filling with your coffee. A keto cheese danish made with cloud bread would be a really light and delicious snack to munch on with it.
Frequently Asked Questions About Low-Carb Bulletproof Coffee Recipe
This coffee recipe is one of my favorites! You are going to love it too. Here are some answers to questions people have asked about Bulletproof coffee.

Yes, my recipe is keto. In fact, there are zero net carbs in each cup!

This is a very filling drink. The healthy fats will wake up your metabolism, and keep you feeling full. It’s also a great source of energy when you need it most!
Does bulletproof coffee get you into ketosis?
It doesn’t put you into ketosis on its own, but it helps your body get into it when you pair it with a low-carb diet.
When you are trying to do the keto diet to lose weight, you need to track your macros and make sure you are eating enough fats, protein, and cutting down on carbs.
Why is it called bulletproof coffee?
Back in 2011, Dave Asprey created this coffee as a breakfast alternative. He named it bulletproof coffee from the line of wellness products and supplements he already had. After other people heard about it, they created copycat recipes (like mine)!
What kind of collagen powder is used in this bulletproof coffee recipe?
There are two different types of collagen powder you can buy – vegan and meat sources.
Vegan collagen modifies yeast and bacteria to recreate this chemical.
The most popular collagen powder is made from pork, cattle, and marine animals. For this recipe, I suggest using unflavored collagen.
If you want to use flavored collagen, you need to read the label and make sure it doesn’t have added sugar or carbs.
