If you are like me, you LOVE your morning coffee. But butter in my coffee?? Yikes, I wasn’t sure.
After giving it a try, I can truly say, it is more filling … when I was in the strictest part of my KETO LIVING routine (for almost 2 full years), this was my morning routine.
Drink a veggie protein shake, often just mixed with water … before my morning walk. Then follow the walk with a Keto Coffee … and I was good until lunch, no problem!
There are many benefits of drinking a KETO Coffee (often called Bulletproof Coffee or Butter Coffee).
Benefits of Bulletproof Coffee:
Coffee usually gives you a caffeine buzz in the beginning, but can also lead to a crash later on.
These KETO COFFEE products (and my recipe below) will give you a longer, steadier boost of energy.
Healthy fats from butter & MCT oil help to stop food cravings that often happen when drinking coffee. It became an important part of my Keto lifestyle plan and helped me lose weight in the process. Without getting too scientific, MCTs are saturated fatty acids that are easier to digest than other types of fat, so it is great for digestion.
Generally, the MCT oil in bulletproof coffee will help you feel full & satisfied, will give you more energy, and give you a clear, focused mind.
To thrive while living the Keto life, you need to be empowered with the necessary tools and products. I decided to dedicate this post to all of the great coffee solutions that are on the market now. These weren’t all available when I started, so I will also share my keto coffee recipe (no big secret). I’m certain most of the ingredients you will have right in your keto kitchen already.
But first, let’s check out some of the NEW Keto Coffee (Bullet Coffee) products that are on the market now. You will want to have these handy in your kitchen for everyday.

INDIVIDUAL KETO COFFEE PACKAGES: Coffee on the go!

Why I like it: You will see mixed reviews on this one. Yes, you have to give it a good mix … but I like this one for the convenience of the individual serving pack. I traveled a lot in my career, and I wish these had been available then. Simply add hot water, use a froth stirrer if you have one, give it a good mix and enjoy. What I like beyond the convenience of having this to take with you … is the energy, and feeling full I get from these Keto Coffee instant solutions. Worth a try for convenience for sure.
Instant Coffee Mix – Caramel Macchiato Flavour
Features: A special Rapid Fire Blend [Coconut oil, butter & grass-fed butter, MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides)], Rapid Fire Boost [(providing 150 mg caffeine) instant coffee, natural caffeine (from green coffee bean) and coffee], natural flavors, silicon dioxide, Himalayan pink salt, rebaudioside A (stevia extract) and xanthan gum. Contains Tree Nuts (coconut) and Milk. | Add a scoop of this to your cup and hot water … and you have your morning Keto Coffee.
Why I like it: Frankly, in most cases, I’m brewing my coffee and either adding all of my own ingredients (recipe below) or the Creamer to make my Keto Coffee. But if you only have a kettle or want to make a single cup … nothing like this instant solution. Just add water!
HERE IS WHY KETO (BULLET) COFFEE WORKS:
- Energizing and Fat Burning
The key to achieving a state of ketosis (which helps burn stored body fat as an energy source), is to ingest functional fats and keep carb intake low.
- Ketones Boost Brain Power Naturally
One of the key points about Ketones is that they provide fuel that can help power cognitive performance and focus.
- Makes you feel full
It helps you to feel full right through to lunch. I feel more energized and satisfied after a good cup of Keto Coffee in the morning.
- These ‘easy to use’ and ‘easy to serve’ instant coffee solutions help you maintain a Keto lifestyle
Whether you keep the creamer for easy daily use with your fresh brew, or choose one of the “instant’ solutions … or individual travel packs. You can easily be ready for a Keto Bullet Coffee anywhere or any day. Enjoy!
- The individual packs (instant solutions) can be expensive.
Certainly making a full pot of coffee and adding ingredients you already have on hand (see recipe below) may be a less expensive solution to the instant solutions above. But if you are looking for convenience, or want something to take camping, on vacations, or when travelling for work … these instant solutions are slick and easy to go!
- Flavours … some you like, some you may not.
Check the different flavour options – do you prefer French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Caramel … don’t be afraid to try more than one flavor.
ALL ABOUT COFFEE … if your morning is all about coffee (like mine is) … then you will find the right combination of ‘made at home’ and ‘on the road’ solutions to keep your morning Keto Coffee hot and ready when you want it.
I CAN HEAR SOME OF YOU NOW … but what about my Keurig … individual cups of coffee. We have you covered there too. Check this out!
BULLET COFFEE PODS, K CUPS … who would have thought!
Now you can enjoy your morning cup of KETO (BULLET) COFFEE right from your Keurig coffee maker. Each serving, coffee pod, is loaded with ingredients to help provide ketogenic diet benefits. The brand “Rapid Fire” prides themselves on offering the finest creamy, delicious functional coffee in convenient fast-brew pods.
Rapid Fire crafts coffee with coconut oil, MCTs and grass-fed butter – along with a touch of Himalayan salt – to create a delicious, satisfying and nutritious morning coffee brew. These powerful superfoods contain healthy fats that are loaded with energizing compounds, fat-liberating essential fatty acids, and health-protecting antioxidants for numerous nutritional benefits.
Why I like these … my partner doesn’t drink coffee, so sometimes a single morning cup of coffee just makes sense. These are easy to use so I always try to have some coffee pods on hand. I love my Keurig (because it can make awesome frothy cold coffee drinks too) … but for freshly brewed coffee in a pot, I also love my new Braun Coffee Maker (it makes a pot of coffee, a cup of coffee or a travel mug, hot or cold, just saying). Yes I have them both, and I use them both …
It’s okay, call me a coffee snob. That’s why I wanted to write this article for you. I do love my coffee, and I am intrigued by all of these new Keto Coffee products that are on the market for us today.
MY KETO COFFEE RECIPE (I promised … )
MCT OIL – 1 TBSP | (Alternative I Sometimes used was Coconut Oil – 1 TBSP)
BUTTER (or Ghee) – 1TBSP
WHIPPING CREAM – 1 TBSP (optional)
Pinch (or less) of PINK SALT (optional)

Mix it into your fav 12 oz brew of coffee. Give it a good mix, using a froth mixer is fun … yummy.
There it is … that is my recipe. Some people add a dash of cinnamon but my secret ingredient is a splash of whipping cream and pure vanilla.
So the next time someone sees you drinking your morning coffee … just say:
