If there is one thing I can’t live without in the morning, it’s got to be my coffee. Once I entered the keto diet, however, I found it difficult to drink straight black. After all, where’s the fun in having that every day? I needed something a bit sweeter to down it while getting my recommended fat intake!
And that’s when I learned all about bulletproof coffee and what I can do with my usual morning drink for better sweetness. So if you’re wondering how you can put a twist to your usual long black or flat white, then read on as I show you 15 keto coffee recipes to try out!
You don’t need to be stuck with your usual black coffee or use only plain sweeteners. Here are some of my favorite recipes to make my cup of joe more energizing!
1. Bulletproof Coffee (Keto Butter Coffee)
This is the most basic and simple recipe you can start off with if you have just begun the keto diet. Made with MCT oil, you will be able to digest the fats easily and metabolize them for the fat burn! Plus, it has such a creamier consistency with a twinge of sweetness to make your bitter cup of coffee even better. You’ve got the option to add a little bit of no-carb add-ins like heavy cream, cinnamon, or sugar-free syrup.
This is another simple recipe to follow but with a twist. You’ve got a bit of whipping cream and vanilla extract to make it a tad sweeter. That way, it tastes delicious and fuels you throughout the day. I’ve made it through a whole day with just a cup or two of this, which makes intermittent fasting much easier. It’s worth the effort with its creaminess.
If you’re looking for something sweeter but without the added sugars and carbs, then you will love this recipe! Easy to do, it tastes similar to a frappuccino and with the vanilla flavors. It’s refreshing and different from your typical hot bulletproof coffee in the morning. The best part? This coffee tastes like vanilla ice cream, which makes your mornings much brighter.
In this recipe, MCT powder is used instead of your usual oil as it’s less messy to prepare and will be easy to transport when you’re traveling. It only takes two minutes to prepare as long as you have the freshly brewed coffee. Add a pinch of Himalayan salt to intensify its flavor and make it even better! It’s the perfect start to any morning.
Wait, what’s Mexican coffee? It’s a variation of the usual hot cup of joe but with a lot of delicious brown sugar and chocolate syrup. But instead of adding those, we do some variations of the recipe to make a unique and comforting concoction to make your winter or fall mornings better. Instead of the mainstream pumpkin spice latte or mocha, let’s go for something chocolatey without the carbs or overload of calories!
I know I mentioned that pumpkin spice lattes are a bit mainstream but let’s face it, everyone wants something of pumpkin spice for the fall season (including me!). That’s why this is a perfect frappe recipe to try at home to save on the carbs and calories. It’s just as good as what you would usually buy from cafes without the overload of calories that have you gain weight.
Instead of a frappe, we had a latte version of our favorite fall flavor, which has fewer carbs and sugar. It’s a hot drink to enjoy as the days grow colder. Taking only five minutes to make and filled with the healthy fat you need, it’s worth a try! You won’t need to go to your nearest cafe just to get your fix of over-sugary drinks anymore.
Another delicious and refreshing drink perfect for the summer is a caramel frap. However, local cafes will always add a ton of artificial syrups and sugars that make it too calorific without the nutrients! That’s why this recipe will change that, a fat bomb in a glass filled with energy to satisfy you the whole day. All without the influx of carbs!
If you’re not a huge fan of flavored coffee but need a thick and refreshing drink that doesn’t go over 210 calories, then this big, refreshing frappuccino is a way to go. With only THREE grams of carbs for a 16-ounce recipe, you save a ton of money without having to waste your calories on drinks without nutrients. Simple and satisfying, it’s perfect for a warm day.
Now, what makes this keto coffee different from most bulletproof coffee recipes we’ve seen out there? The addition of egg yolks! Yes, egg yolks and collagen are added to the recipe, which makes the coffee surprisingly creamy and filled with the healthy fats you need. It’s incredibly creamy and just as delicious with more fat to keep you up and running throughout the day.
Now, let’s try something different and satisfy those nutty cravings of yours. It’s like those almond joy candy bar flavors but without the grains or overload of carbs. Mixed with a bit of chocolate, you have the dark mocha flavors with a twinge of nuttiness that balances out the taste. Definitely a party in your tummy as you sip a bit during cold days.
If Christmas season is approaching or you just want to have a taste of the yuletide season, then this recipe is perfect for you. No need to wait for the -ber months before you start getting your fix of Peppermint Mocha! It’s easy to do and uses the ingredients you can find in your local supermarket. No hassle or much calories but with all the flavors!
This is another delicious peppermint mocha recipe you’ll love. What makes it different is that it comes with a bit of nuttiness from the almonds/hazelnuts AND with chia seeds for a thick consistency with more healthy fat. It’s extra creamy because we use the blender, making it seem even more indulgent but without the calorie overload.
Who wouldn’t want to curl up in bed during Sunday mornings with a warm cinnamon vanilla latte in hand? Only taking five minutes to prepare, it’s a lazy coffee for those who want a warm drink during the rainy days. It doesn’t contain too many calories or carbs, but still providing the healthy fat to stay satiated until lunch!
Last but not the least, we have a Sugar-Free Coffee Creme Brûlée! This is a unique drink that packs on the calories and fat. But fear not, as it has no sugar and the least carbs for a calorific cup of coffee. With a dash of rum and espresso, it’s a pick-me-up adult will enjoy.
It’s impressive with what you can do with coffee to bring in different flavors without the need for processed sugars and carbs. With bulletproof coffee or low-calorie sweeteners, you won’t need to worry about ruining your ketosis.
