When I first began doing Keto, hitting my macros was a huge struggle. Because I was so used to Whole30 and “eating clean” (translation: all things grilled chicken) I could not figure out how in the world I could hit my fat grams, without going way over on protein. It caused a lot of stress and I honestly felt defeated right from the very start. I kept reading about this “Bulletproof Coffee” and thought it was just a brand (which it also is and you can order that here) but then I saw a recipe and had to try it. I have been hooked ever since.
Bulletproof Coffee is not only delicious – but good for you too. In addition to helping you stay in ketosis, it can accelerate fat loss, promote muscle gain, boost your energy, and increase your mental clarity and focus. I know. It’s like a miracle in a cup. And did I mention it was delicious? I start every morning with a nice hot cup and then treat myself to another one midday.
Bulletproof Coffee Recipe
- 8oz of your favorite organic brewed coffee – I like Hazelnut Creme
- 1 tbsp Kerrygold Butter
- 1 tbsp organic coconut oil
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- Stevia to taste (optional)
I have a Keurig, so I begin by brewing my 8oz of coffee with the Kerrygold in it so that it melts as it brews. In my Magic Bullet Mug, I add the whipping cream, coconut oil, and Stevia. Then add in the coffee/butter concoction and blend in the Magic Bullet for about 20 seconds. Voila!
According to MyFitnessPal* this recipe is 432 calories, 2 carbs, and 46 grams of fat. Since my goal is 138 grams of fat daily, I can perfectly fit two “BPCs” in my day while still eating my three normal meals, and hit my fat macros just fine without going over on protein or carbs. Yay Keto! Bulletproof Coffee was a total game changer for me – and I hope it will be for you too!
