You're reading this article because you want to try making Bulletproof Coffee (aka Keto Coffee), right? Well, you're in luck, because we've researched and wrote down the 5 tastiest recipes for you.

We've been drinking Bulletproof coffee with MCT oil for a while now and after drinking the standard recipe for a long time we got a bit bored, so we decided to look for the tastiest variations... Read on to find out what our according to us are the best 5 recipes.

What is BulletProof Coffee?

The original BulletProof Coffee recipe consists of black coffee, grass-fed cow butter, and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil.

You need a specific type of butter, and "MCT" may sound very scientific, but we'll break it all down for you in a nutshell in this article.

What you need for a standard BulletProof Coffee?

For a standard BulletProof Coffee you only need three simple ingredients:

  • Good quality coffee
  • Butter from grass-fed cows
  • MCT oil - Which is high in C8s
  • a blender

Let's take a closer look at these ingredients.

coffee beans

Don't go for the cheapest beans you can find. You want quality coffee beans as the basis for Bulletproof coffee.

Buy a good coffee maker. It doesn't matter if you use machine or filter coffee, just make sure you make good coffee.

Butter from grass-fed cows

You can adjust the coffee quality to your own personal taste, but using the right butter is essential. You can't just use any butter; only grass-fed cows produce the butter cream suitable for BulletProof coffee. Other butters do not contain the necessary omega fatty acids.

MCT oil

MCT are medium chain triglycerides. It can be divided into several types and they all have their own advantages. C6, C8 and C10 are the most important.

To make things easy: an MCT high in C8 is what you need.

a blender

You need a blender. You'll get an odd-tasting, layered drink if you don't use a blender.

In principle, any blender is suitable, but if you are going to use it mainly for BulletProof Coffee, you want to buy a small blender that is easy to clean. Larger blenders are harder to clean if they get greasy.

Our Top 5 BulletProof Coffee Recipes

1. The Original Bullet Proof Coffee Recipe

If you're just starting your BulletProof Coffee journey, you should at least give the original recipe a try before trying any of the various other recipes. 

  • A cup of high quality coffee
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons MCT oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted, grass-fed butter

Mix the ingredients and enjoy. Make sure you blend it in the blender long enough to get a nice frothy (Latte-like) coffee.

2. Cinnamon BulletProof Coffee

  • A cup of high quality coffee
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons MCT oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted, grass-fed butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • A few drops of liquid stevia (to taste)


  • Pour the coffee into your blender.
  • Add the MCT oil, grass-fed butter, and cinnamon.
  • Mix until creamy with a little foam on top.
  • Pour into a warm mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Adding a little cinnamon and a few drops of liquid stevia adds a new dimension to your BulletProof Coffee. We love this variation, especially on colder days.

3. BulletProof Almond Milk Cappuccino

This is a recipe for the cappuccino lovers who don't like to drink regular milk.


  • A double espresso
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted grass-fed butter
  • A tablespoon of MCT oil
  • Unsweetened almond milk


  • Pour the coffee into a blender
  • Add the butter and the MCT oil and mix
  • Pour the brew into a cappuccino mug
  • Heat the almond milk and foam it until you have a thick foam layer with a little bit of warm almond milk underneath
  • Pour the foam and milk into the coffee

4. BulletProof coffee with cocoa butter

By adding cocoa butter, you get a subtle hint of chocolate coffee. A nice benefit is that raw chocolate is said to have some great health benefits. Please note: the cocoa butter is extra, it is not a substitute for the grass-fed butter!


  • A cup of high quality coffee
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil
  • A tablespoon of unsalted, grass-fed butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk (use full-fat coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp raw cocoa butter


  • Pour the coffee into the blender.
  • Add the MCT oil, coconut milk, butter and cocoa butter.
  • Mix on high speed until creamy with a good foam layer on top.

5. BulletProof mocha

With raw cocoa powder you can turn your Bulletproof coffee into a Bulletproof mocha.


  • A cup of strong coffee
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil
  • A tablespoon of grass-fed butter
  • 1 teaspoon raw organic cocoa powder
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A touch of cinnamon


  • Pour the coffee into your blender.
  • Add the oil, butter, chocolate powder, nutmeg and cinnamon
  • Blend it creamy on high speed to make a coffee with a generous amount of foam on top.
  • Pour into a warm mug and add some cocoa powder.

Other Additions to Consider

  • Cinnamon- This is the tastiest addition. It pairs great with the coffee and grass-fed butter to give your BulletProof coffee a great taste without adding artificial sweetness.
  • Cocoa powder - A lot of people swear by this, but I think it really depends on how big a chocolate lover you are. It tends to make your BulletProof Coffee a bit bitter
  • Liquid Stevia– If you want to add artificial sweetener, this is the best choice.
  • Sugar-free syrups - Instead of just adding sweetness, syrups allow you to add different flavors to your coffee. Caramel is a great option if you like something that goes really well with the buttery taste of the coffee.
