How to Make Ketogenic Coffee – 5 Recipes (2024)

If you’re already a coffee addict (and I use that as a term of endearment), you appreciate the extra kick that coffee gives you in the morning. But what if coffee is actually a health food?

Coffee gets a bad rap, but the science shows that high-quality organic coffee—and I’ll explain what I mean by that—can be an awesome biohack for increased energy and focus as well as a powerful fat-burning aid high in anti-oxidants and polyphenols.

More importantly, good coffee tastes great. It’s like a health food disguised as an indulgence.

Before I give you all the benefits of drinking good coffee, let me define “good coffee.” Good coffee is organic, fair trade, and freshly roasted. I order green beans from all over the world and roast them myself… but if you’re not doing that, a great option is Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Coffee—it has all the bennies without the afternoon crash.


  • Decreased risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Protection against Parkinson’s disease
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Protection against liver disease and liver cancer
  • Elevated mood and decreased risk of depression

Of course, these benefits come with moderate coffee consumption—just like most other things, overdoing it can come with some risk. A cup or two a day will get you all the benefits without giving you the jitters!

PLUS, adding grass-fed butter and MCT Oil to your coffee gives you these BONUS BENEFITS:

  • Immediate sustained energy
  • Mental acuity
  • Metabolic kickstart
  • Increased fat-burning


Okay, so now it’s time to put down your drive-through caramel vanilla cappuccino and grab the delicious cup of coffee that will really keep you going all day and keep you healthy all—well, a long time!

The basic fatty coffee recipe is: A mug full of freshly brewed good coffee (I recommend aeropress or French press), a scant tablespoon of MCT oil, and a scant tablespoon of grass-fed butter. Blend in your Vitamix (or high powered blender) while the coffee’s hot, or use a hand-held frother to whip it all together. From there, you can take your morning Joe to all kinds of delicious levels!

Here are a few of my FAVORITE FATTY COFFEE RECIPES FOR 2015! These yummy drinks are enough to get you up in the morning—and keep you going all day.


The day is young… it’s time to break out a stack of hardcover classics and sip a perfectly layered cappuccino while contemplating the state of society. Now, that’s a plan of someone who knows that almond milk makes the best foam. Someone who knows what life is all about.


  • Double shot of espresso
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk


  • Pour the shot of espresso and then transfer to a large pitcher. Add the butter and oil.
  • Using a handheld frother, skim just below the surface to froth together the fats and coffee. Submerge a couple of times to mix the liquid below. Pour the mixture into a cappuccino cup.
  • Using a pot on the stove or the steamer wand on your cappuccino machine, heat the almond milk to about 170˚F. Gently lift up on the wand of the cappuccino machine, and skim just below the milk surface to create a large layer of foam. If using the stovetop method, use the handheld frother to skim the milk’s surface and whip up a large layer of foam.
  • At this point, the milk should be mostly foam with just a little bit of hot milk beneath. Pour the milk into the espresso, using a spoon to hold back the foam if necessary. Spoon the foam over the top. Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon (optional).


The cinnamon flavor is infused into the brew of this warm, spiced coffee reminiscent of traditional Mexican Coffee… which, in America, usually has some kind of liquor in it. This, however, leaves out the tequila in favor of brain-boosting fats. PLUS, cinnamon is an appetite suppressant—so you’ll feel fuller, longer.

  • 2 cups French pressed coffee
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 packet raw stevia (or birch xylitol)
  • Cinnamon for dusting


  • Place enough ground coffee into your French press to brew two cups. Add one teaspoon of cinnamon. Pour in two cups of boiling water and steep for five minutes. Press.
  • Pour the coffee into the pitcher of your high powered blender. Add the MCT oil, grass-fed butter and stevia. Process until creamy with a bit of froth on top.
Pour into a warm mug and dust with cinnamon.


This minty mocha tastes like a stack of those thin and crispy Girl Scout cookies dunked in milk. It’s like a box of Junior Mints washed back with a cup of creamy coffee. It’s like floating on a chocolate cloud with cool mint breezes blowing in your hair. Yeah, it’s magic in a mug.

  • 2 cups French pressed coffee
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • 2 tablespoons full fat coconut milk or grass-fed heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (or to taste)
  • 1 packet raw Stevia or birch xylitol (or to taste)
  • Dollop of coconut whipped cream or organic dairy whipped cream, to serve


  • Brew and press a pot of coffee in your French press. Pour two cups into the pitcher of your high powered blender. Add the oil, butter, coconut milk, cacao powder, peppermint extract, and stevia. Process on high until creamy with a good amount of froth on top.
  • Top with a dollop of whipped organic heavy cream or whipped coconut cream and a sprinkle of cacao powder.


Coconut whipped cream looks like that tub of white stuff you get in the grocer’s freezer, but the two actually taste nothing alike. Coconut whipped cream is made from one ingredient: Coconut milk. That tub of white stuff is made up of… a whole bunch of stuff that I’d rather not mention. So we put this white stuff, or pure organic dairy whipped cream from pasture grazed cows, on our coffee drinks instead.

  • 1 15-ounce can full fat organic coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional) or a few drops of liquid vanilla stevia


  • Flip the can of coconut milk upside down and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. Flip it back over and open it. The cream will all be on the top. Scoop it into the bowl of an upright kitchen mixer. Add vanilla. Using the whisk attachment, whisk until light and fluffy.
  • Store unused portions of coconut whipped cream in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to five days.

Alternate method: Pour the can of room temperature coconut milk (plus vanilla if using) into the chamber of a liter-sized whipped cream maker and charge according to manufacturer directions. Shake and squirt!

Tip: Make sure the coconut cream is mixed well before putting it into the whipped cream maker. If it’s separated, run it through the blender first.


If you’re just getting started with fatty coffee, here are a couple of tips to make sure the process is smooth. While it’s slightly more involved than brewing a pot of coffee and dumping in some International Creamer, it only takes a few minutes and will become second-nature in no time!

TIP 1: Start with a teaspoon each of grass-fed butter and MCT oil and increase it over the next few days to reach a tablespoon. This way, you’re not spending that first few days running to the bathroom!

TIP 2: For a really “creamy style” beverage, use the blender instead of the hand-held frother and crank it up to full power for a good minute or so. You’ll be amazed at how “creamy” your coffee gets!

TIP 3: Warm your mug by filling it with some of the boiling water you intend to use for your French Press (or just boil up some water). Pour it out just before you fill it for a nice warm mug that won’t cool down your coffee.
