Bulletproof Coffee (Keto)

I am one of those lucky ladies whose hubby brings me coffee in bed every morning. Also known as Caveman coffee, this is Funnyman’s version of our morning cuppa. One of these in the morning and I rarely eat breakfast because I am full and satisfied for many hours. (Some days I have two cups and it satiates me until dinnertime!) It is commonly made in a blender, but we are busy people and can’t be bothered: invest in a mini whisk and you will save yourself plenty of money and time because the most important thing is that the fats are emulsified in the hot coffee. I like sweet coffee, and use Truvia sweetener. If you are starting off, use only a teaspoon MCT Oil then gradually increase the amount to one tablespoon because too much too soon can sometimes go right through you – much like a bullet…

Bulletproof Coffee (Keto)

Our easy, delicious version of bulletproof coffee, coming in at only 1.4g carbs per mug. (For my UK readers, scroll to the end of the recipe to see image ads of the products I use.)
Course Breakfast, Drinks
Cuisine General
Prep Time 2 minutes
Total Time 2 minutes
Servings 1 cup


  • 40 g (1.4 oz) double cream
  • 1 TB MCT oil
  • 1 serving hot coffee


  • Add the cream and MCT oil into your coffee cup. Use a mini whisk to whisk the mixture until fats have emulsified. If you like sweet coffee (like I do!), add sweetener now too.
  • Place your mug under your coffee machine, pop in the pod and prepare as normal. Give it one more thorough whisk until the fats have emulsified in the hot coffee - and enjoy!

I started adding Hydrolysed Collagen Protein Powder to my BPC. The brand I use has zero odour or taste, just plenty of fab qualities and is meant to be beneficial for bone and joint health (< I am a runner, so this was attractive to me), as well being great for skin, hair and nails.
The macros exclude the use of sweetener. I bake using a different brand of Erythritol, but as mentioned in the head note, I love Truvia in my coffeee. It has a subtle vanilla flavour. Quite pricey stuff, but 1/2 tsp does the trick. It's made using Erythritol, so Truvia has zero impact carbs.
