Fatty Coffee Recipe

A more common word or recipe that you hear in the ketogenic diet is Bulletproof coffee, also known as BPC. It gets its name from the Bulletproof product company but it has become more about the recipe itself. That recipe is using all Bulletproof brand products, you take 2 1/2 TBSP’s of coffee with a cup of boiling water, using a french press make it into coffee and then blend 1 to 2 TBSP’s of Brain Octane Oil and 1-2 TBSP’s of grass-fed unsalted butter or grass-fed ghee with it until a smooth creamy coffee drink is ready to be served.

The BPC is an incredible recipe on the ketogenic diet because it is purely fat so it really helps with your macros but also the MCT’s help produce ketones more easily in the body and the caffeine has many health benefits including energy. It is a perfect beverage to kick-start your day and to have at the beginning of your eating window, if you practice intermittent fasting.

Keep reading for, in my opinion, a much more delicious fatty coffee recipe, and one that doesn’t run you as high of calories as a traditional BPC, so it’s easier to fit into your diet and you get to eat more whole foods to hit your macros!

Building Fatty Coffee Into My Diet & Routine

I didn’t start incorporating fatty coffee into my diet until 18 months of doing successful keto and I am I every glad I did. Because it is all fat, you continue to prolong your stomach from doing a lot of work to digest carbohydrates and proteins. There was one problem with me being able to enjoy a BPC and that was that I am allergic to dairy, so the grass-fed butter I couldn’t do, but luckily I love grass-fed ghee and it doesn’t bother my stomach.

I felt once I started having my version of a BPC I noticed a huge difference in how I felt all day long. My cravings for something sweet stopped and I think that is because I was getting enough fat in and my macros were pushed up closer to the 80% fat with introducing a fatty coffee recipe into my eating window.

Love for Hot Cocoa

As much as I do enjoy a BPC or a coffee with lots of fat in it, I far more enjoy a hot cocoa recipe. One that is creamy and smooth with that sweet taste but rich chocolate flavor. So I naturally have been making hot cocoa recipes since going keto but it wasn’t until lately that I mastered the flavor and I can’t wait to share the recipe with you.

I have been making keto hot cocoa’s since the beginning of my journey, but I had been adding 2 TBSP’s of cocoa powder to my beverage, but that would add about 3 net carbs, or 6 whole carbs to my day.  At the beginning of my keto journey, I ate below 20 whole carbs per day but recently changed to 20 net carbs to ensure I was getting adequate fiber. Regardless, 6 or 3, that was a lot of carbs to give up in a drink.

It was when I found Perfect Keto Chocolate MCT Oil Powder I realized that I could have a hot cocoa every day and be totally within my macros and most importantly below my required carb intake.


Because I am dairy-free, this recipe is dairy-free, however, I do use ghee in the recipe, if you can’t handle ghee due to digestion issues, you can substitute with coconut oil or MCT oil. I love ghee because it gives it that buttery flavor. You can also substitute with butter flavored coconut oil as well. If you have not tried that yet, it is an awesome staple to add to your pantry.

The star ingredient in this recipe is Chocolate flavored MCT Oil Powder from Perfect Keto. I didn’t buy this product until 16 months past being full-blown into ketosis and I can’t believe I hadn’t been convinced prior in my journey to buying it from someone. The product is amazing and although sweetened with stevia, it doesn’t have a strong stevia taste, nor does it have an aftertaste.

The chocolate powder is super creamy and it blends well into liquid, it is perfect to add to keto shakes or even keto baking! I will have to post one of my brownie recipes I use this Chocolate MCT Oil Powder for.

You will love this product, and I highly recommend you buy it for a staple in your keto pantry! You won’t be sorry.

The other ingredients that make this creamy is the coconut cream, but you do have to be conservative when adding it to the recipe because coconut cream does have carbs, so you don’t want hidden carbs creeping up on you in your fatty coffee recipe.  My recipe below has 2 Tbsp’s in it and it’s just enough to make it that much more creamier.

The Chocolate MCT Oil Powder is honestly a must have product in your pantry. I just returned from a trip to Houston, which I took my powder and I was able to get my fat in and avoid any non-keto foods that I sometimes get stuck having to “do my best” when I’m traveling by eating around, but with my MCT oil powder, I was able to fast until 10AM and then I would have two scoops of the powder in hot water and then I could wait to eat lunch with everyone around 1PM. Great right?!

I am just so passionate and enthusiastic about this product, I just want to share how much I love it with you! Use code: ENTHUSIASTIC for 15% off on your order

  1. Very insightful!! that recipe for the fatty coffee sounds delicious. I have a friend that recently started the Keto diet and I will definitely share this page with him, I know its right up his and his wife’s alley. Where can I find Ghee and what exactly is it? It sounds like such a funny word.

    1. HI Kelsey, thanks for your message and yes, please do let your friend know about my site!   ghee is clarified butter, and it comes from India.  They remove all of the protein and sugars from the dairy and it leaves a 100% fat product.  It is great on the ketogenic diet because it is 100% fat, so it’s similar to coconut oil from a fat profile.   And I do agree, it is a funny word to say 🙂  ~ take good care!

  2. I will start doing ketogenic diet and I think this coffee will be great for me. I never tried Brain Octane Oil though I hope I will like the taste. Your dairy-free recipe will be great for my brother since he also consumes dairy-free foods. However I really can’t find any Himalayan salt in my town and I can’t do online shopping. Do you have any alternative for me?

    1. Hi Furkan, So glad you enjoyed this recipe!! The best alternative to Himalayan (pink) salt is a course sea salt, you just want to avoid the iodized table salt that is saturating the market. It’s been stripped of all its natural minerals.  I’d love to hear how you enjoy the recipe!!  and Brain Octane oil might be hard to find also if you can’t shop online, so just swap it out for an MCT oil, or a Coconut Oil – you just want to ensure you are getting the MCT in some form into the fatty coffee because your body uses it for fuel quickly and it helps produce more ketones.  ~ in good health,


  3. I love to have a cup of coffee with milk every morning and I was wondering about how good is it for my new eating clean habits.
    Your article helped me to understand what is it on a cup of coffee, talking about carbs, fats and macro nutrients.
    Thanks so much for sharing a great information to help me to keep on my new diet and lifestyle.

    1. Nice to hear from you Alejandra, thanks for stopping in.   Glad my article helped provide you the information you need!  ~ in good health, Lyndsay

  4. I heard about the fatty coffee a while ago! That’s actually the reason I bought and started using a french press.
    The chocolate MCT oil powder seems like a game-changer. The recipe I saw initially had a few drops of the MCT oil in it, which kind of turned me off to the idea.
    This sounds amazing though, I will certainly be trying it in the near future.

    1. Thanks Maeghan!  The chocolate MCT oil really is a game changer!  Looking forward to hearing about how much you enjoy the recipe!

    1. Thanks Teresa! I am so thankful Coffee is A-OK on the keto books! Not sure what I could do without it? I am always posting new recipes so please stop by any time! ~ Lyndsay
