Well friends, I’m obsessed with keto coffee and I can’t imagine starting my day without it. This new keto coffee obsession may come as a surprise to those of you that have been following me. As you may or may not know, I took some time off from coffee because I thought it was causing me anxiety. After a year of heavy detox and exploration of my diet I discovered sugar was the real culprit (as well as mold poisoning)!
Keto coffee intrigued me because I heard it’s amazing without sugar or cream. It only took me one morning of drinking this keto coffee to be completely enamored by it. I am not “keto” by definition I just love this way of drinking coffee.
What is keto coffee
Keto coffee is a combination of coffee and fats. It’s important to use a combination of healthy grass fed butter and organic coconut oil. The fats supply the body with fuel especially for people that are doing intermittent fasting and/or a keto diet. This is especially true when you are restricting carbohydrates and sugars. As the body then begins to burn fat (instead of sugars/carbs) which can be great for weight loss and maintenance.
what do you need to make keto coffee
Simply put you need organic coffee, grass fed butter, organic coconut oil, a blender and a coffee maker. We prefer pour over coffee in our house. If you haven’t tried it I can’t recommend it enough. I bought our Chemex four years ago because I didn’t like the idea of our coffee going through a plastic machine. It’s very simple and you can’t beat the taste!
why organic coffee?
First and foremost you want quality organic ingredients when making your keto coffee. Buying organic coffee lessens your chances of being exposed to mycotoxins (mold) which are commonly found in coffee that is not organic. This is because mold thrives on pestisides and (non organic) coffee is one of the most heavily treated crops. Mycotoxins can cause numerous health issues including anxiety, gastrointestinal issues and they are carcinogenic.
Not to mention if you drink coffee every day you want to make sure you’re exposing yourself to the least amount of chemicals as possible, otherwise overtime it really adds up.
Additionally, organic coffee retains more of the antioxidants that make coffee so good for us! My favorite organic coffee is Laird Superfood Organic Coffee and I’ve found the price is very reasonable when compared to other organic coffees. Order through that link and you’ll get $5 off!
how do you make keto coffee
Brew your organic coffee as you normally would. While it’s brewing add 1 tablespoon of grass fed butter and 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil to a blender. For the record we LOVE our vitamix. We got it 7 years ago when my first son was born and we still use it multiple times a day. It’s totally worth the price. Anyway, once your coffee is done pour 12oz coffee into the blender and blend for 30 seconds. You will not believe the amazing froth this coffee has, it’s creamy and so delicious. If you’re like me and you like a little sweetness you can add a sweetener to the top.. I love sprinkling a tsp of truvia on mine, it gives it a little sweet crunch. Yum!
