Perfect Keto Bulletproof Coffee

Perfect Keto Bulletproof Coffee

No doubt you are now well aware how much we love a Bulletproof Coffee to start our day. Typically made with coffee, grass fed butter and MCT oil, it provides clean instant energy, promotes fat burning, increases mental output and can help to raise ketone levels. The problem with MCT oil however, is that even the smallest amount can cause digestive stress and irritation, leaving you with no other choice but to omit this key ingredient. Until now. Introducing Perfect Keto MCT Powder and our new favourite Perfect Keto Bulletproof Coffee.

Perfect Keto Bulletproof Coffee

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • ¼-1/3 cup organic coffee beans, ground
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed unsalted butter
  • 1 scoop Perfect Keto MCT Powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt

Method

  1. Make a standard espresso using a coffee machine or your preferred method.
  2. Add hot water to a blender to pre-heat.
  3. Empty water and add coffee, butter, MCT powder, salt and blend for 10-20 seconds or until creamy and well combined.

Why MCT Powder?

  • It’s much easier on the digestive system when compared to MCT oil.
  • It’s portable and perfect for travelling.
  • It adds a delicious creaminess to your Bulletproof Coffee to keep you going for hours.
