Bulletproof coffee is created by Dave Asprey, it’s a mixture of high-quality coffee, MCT oil, and butter/ghee, which results in a cup of coffee that's rich, creamy and delicious. 

This coffee recipe is ideal for anyone who follows a keto, paleo, or low-carb diet, as well as those who do intermittent fasting (drink it without breaking your fast). Adding MCT oil to your coffee gives you healthy fats and may help you to stay in ketosis. 

How to make Bulletproof coffee: 

Serves: 1 (double recipe for 2 serves) 


• Filtered boiling water 
• 1 cup of FS coffee or Bulletproof coffee 
MCT oil (you can build up to 1-2 tbsp over several days) 
• 1 tbsp of grass-fed, unsalted butter or ghee

1. Start with 200ml of filtered boiling water. 

2. Measure 2 ½ heaped tablespoons freshly ground Bulletproof Coffee Beans and brew using your favourite coffee brewing method – French press, moka, AeroPress etc. 

3. Pour in 1 teaspoon of Bulletproof’s Brain Octane (build up to 1-2 tablespoons over several days). You can also use MCT oil. 

4. Add 1 tablespoon grass-fed, unsalted butter or ghee (build up to 2 tablespoons or more over several days). 

5. Mix in a blender for 20 seconds. Ensure the oil and butter are thoroughly emulsified and the drink is frothy and creamy without a film of oil on the surface. 

6. Pour into your favourite cup, or enjoy it on the go in a travel mug. 

Enjoy your coffee!

Coffee on the go:    

Bulletproof coffee does produce foam as pictured, but be very careful to secure the lid as the contents will be hot. It helps to use a frothing spiral for extra froth and to help it mix. 

What is MCT and why add it to my coffee?  

MCT is short for Medium-Chain Triglycerides, which are saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil. MCT oils are metabolised and converted into ketones, which help provide an alternative source of energy in the brain. [1]

Why add butter or ghee to my coffee? 

Ghee (or clarified butter) is cows butter cooked gently over a low heat with the top froth skimmed off. What you’re left with is a golden, rich liquid that is a healthy source of vitamins A and K, minerals and healthy fats. [2]
