If you’re into keto, it’s a safe assumption you’re into coffee. The two go hand-in-hand like bacon and eggs… like salt and pepper, or like keto bread and butter. Our point is that keto coffee is complementary to the ketogenic diet, and boasts a ton of great benefits that can make you feel amazing. But if you are one bulletproof coffee away from boredom, fret not. We have a delicious recipe from Dr. Davinah to make your morning cup of joe exciting and glamorous again.
Just like dating, it’s best to keep things fresh and make a little effort. Boredom makes for idle snacking habits, don’t you know? And, just like the keto diet, coffee can help you lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's and even prevent depression¹. In fact, coffee has shown to be incredibly beneficial in all of the cornerstones of the ketogenic diet; so long as it’s not brewed with sugar and milk, that is.
Coming up, we have an incredible recipe to share, but first, let’s inspect keto coffee a little bit closer and see what’s going on and if you should make this part of your daily regimen.
The 411 on Keto Coffee
Keto coffee took off in a big way when Dave Asprey reintroduced the Tibetan tradition of drinking tea and butter², or “Po Cha,” the Western variation coffee, MCT oil, and butter. Since Asprey posted the recipe on his website in 2009, “Bulletproof” coffee has been circulating coffee shops and pop culture. People make their own at home, and it’s widely understood that coffee for breakfast and help reduce your caloric intake thanks to fats satiating properties (i.e., it makes you feel fuller for longer!).
Keto coffee offers many benefits, notably:
- Keto Coffee Contains CLA, which aids in weight loss: Researchers found that women who drank coffee with Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), dropped 9% body fat per year without making dietary changes³.
- Keto Coffee Suppresses Your Appetite: While the CLA does help with fat loss, the act of drinking a high-fat low-carb drink squashes your appetite and sends a signal to your brain that you are satiated and not in need of new fuel.
Yes, that bulletproof brew is going the distance, but are you making the most of your morning or your fat intake? A tablespoon of grass-fed butter contains approximately 100 calories and 12g of fat. But if you’re chugging down your coffee just to hit your macros, do we have a treat for you - a delicious treat that will transform your morning or afternoon and make you feel like you’re new to keto all over again.
That’s right, you can get your buttery goodness in other, more delicious ways than a heaped spoon of grass-fed butter in your morning coffee. With a little keto coffee magic from Dr. Davinah (and a couple of yummy MCT infused Nui cookies), you can make sure a substantial keto meal replacement to get you through the mid-morning snack attack. With all the perks of keto and all the appeal of Starbucks, this keto coffee is uh-mazing.
Dr. Davinah says, “Since starting keto, I’ve made it a habit to have butter coffee daily. It’s my one-stop kind of drink that holds healthy fats, collagen peptides, and antioxidants. Now that it’s summer, having a coffee (or any hot drink for that matter) is the last thing on my mind.
