We Upgrade Keto Coffee with Brown Butter for an Easy and Extra Rich Morning Pick-Me-Up

January 31, 2019

If you started your new year on the keto-kick, you may be familiar with the keto coffee of choice: black coffee with a scoop of grass-fed butter, ghee, or coconut oil (and sometimes MCT oil). Some people also refer to this coffee as Bulletproof Coffee, which strictly speaking, refers to the coffee company of Dave Asprey, which calls for the specific beans under the Bulletproof brand. But because it was the brand that popularized the drink, the name has been used as a blanket term for this type of coffee.

Don’t leave it out for too long after blitzing or the butter and coffee will separate.

Semantics and history aside, keto coffee offers very rich flavor that sticks to the tongue and has an oily texture to it. It’s not for everyone, but a few people swear by it not just for its filling and energizing effect, but also for its taste. We decide to take the concept of this oily coffee and give it a deeper flavor by browning the butter—and if this doesn’t count as keto-friendly anymore because of this, we don’t care tbh since we just like how it tastes.
