    What is bulletproof coffee or keto coffee?

    This bulletproof coffee (also known as butter coffee, MCT coffee, or keto coffee) is just regular coffee, but with added fat. It’s very popular in the keto and paleo communities. The fat gives you a feeling of fullness and can promote ketosis. It tastes great and gives you long-lasting energy. Some people claim it is great for weight loss too.

    There are different types of fat you can use in bullet coffee. High-quality grass-fed butter, ghee, coconut oil, or MCT oil. MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, a type of fat commonly derived from coconut oil.

    Can you drink it everyday?

    Yes! This coffee is great to enjoy every day as part of a well-balanced diet, or just have it a couple of times a week when you need that extra boost. I like to have it in the morning, but it’s great as a mid-afternoon pick me up too.

    Can you make it ahead of time?

    This drink is best enjoyed as soon as it’s made. If you let it get cold, the coconut oil will solidify.

    Variations
