Many people have begun drinking keto coffee in the morning because it’s filled with healthy fats that help kickstart their metabolism. If you’re one of those people and you want to keep up the habit but have grown tired of the basic cup of keto coffee, here are a few keto-friendly ways to switch it up and enjoy a more decadent morning beverage.
The Original Recipe
The original keto coffee recipe is a mixture of coffee, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, and grass-fed butter or ghee. These ingredients blend to create a creamy, healthy, latte-style drink loaded with healthy fat that can give you quick energy and boost your metabolism.
Keto Mocha Coffee
Varying ever so slightly from the original recipe, keto mocha coffee is simple but delicious. Mix your coffee, full-fat coconut milk, a bit of high-quality cocoa powder, grass-fed butter, and MCT oil in your blender. The result is a creamy coffee beverage that is not only healthy but will satisfy your chocolate craving.
Keto Ginger Coffee
Another variant of the original recipe, the base of keto ginger coffee is the same mixture of coffee, MCT oil, and grass-fed butter or ghee. By adding a dash of fresh grated ginger or ginger powder, you will get the added flavor and health benefits of ginger. Ginger is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and may reduce the risk of diabetes and prevent heart disease. Just be careful not to add too much—ginger has a strong, acquired taste.
Keto-friendly Vietnamese Coffee
If you like your coffee strong with just a hint of sweetness, you’ll love Vietnamese coffee. To make it, simply pour your cup of coffee over a tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk. To make this recipe keto-friendly, be sure to use condensed coconut milk.
Up for a challenge? You can make your own condensed coconut milk using monk fruit, known for its anti-inflammatory effects, as the sweetener.
Keto Protein Coffee
For athletes, keto protein coffee is a great way to start the day. This recipe requires a cup of coffee, MCT oil, a bit of grass-fed butter or ghee, three egg yolks, collagen powder, coconut milk, cinnamon, and your sweetener of choice. Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until foamy. Before your workout, enjoy your nutritious keto-friendly coffee packed with protein.
Keto Hemp Coffee
Hemp hearts offer tons of healthy fats and are a good source of protein and vitamin E, along with many other nutrients. This recipe also incorporates cacao butter and collagen. For a nutritional morning pick-me-up, mix coffee, MCT oil, hemp hearts, cacao butter, and collagen powder.
Keto Iced Coffee Protein Shake
This recipe combines your morning cup of coffee and a daily protein shake. It calls for avocado, cold brew coffee, almond milk, collagen powder, MCT oil, cacao powder, and cinnamon. To make this recipe, freeze the cold brew coffee into ice cubes and blend all the ingredients. The result is a delicious smoothie that packs energy and healthy fat to get your day started off right.
Keto Cinnamon Spice Coffee
This recipe is another simple yet delicious way to enjoy your morning coffee. Blend one cup of coffee, MCT oil, coconut cream, cinnamon, and the sweetener of choice. Cinnamon-spiced coffee has all the benefits of keto coffee but with a sweet kick.
Keto Dirty Chai
If you love chai lattes, try out the keto version of a dirty chai latte. First, prepare the chai tea using coconut milk, cinnamon, cardamom, black tea, star anise, and allspice. Then, mix these ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, let it steep for a few minutes. Strain the Chai tea then mix it with coffee and ice in the blender to make a delicious, smooth, and creamy keto-friendly chai blend.
Keto Turmeric Latte
Turmeric is an excellent anti-inflammatory ingredient that can add a spicy, earthy flavor to all of your favorite food and drinks. To make this drink, use a cup of coffee, MCT oil, grass-fed butter or ghee, turmeric powder, and a dash of vanilla extract. Mix all the ingredients in your blender for 30 seconds and enjoy.
A New Coffee Every Day
With all of these options, you’re well set with a rotation of morning coffee flavors that will never leave you feeling bored. Say goodbye to the same old keto coffee, and give some of these flavor-packed recipes a try.
