Whether you are on a vegan keto plan, or want to add more coconut oil into you diet, this Vegan Bulletproof Coffee is for you!
Benefits of Bulletproof Coffee
For those of you who have been following me for awhile know that I have been on a low carb diet, or vegan keto diet.
A vegan keto diet consists of low carb, high fat, and moderate protein foods. It puts your body into a state of ketosis, which means you are being fueled by almost completely fat.
Since being on it, I have had no seasonal allergy symptoms, which is a game changer for me.
Many people on a keto diet drink bulletproof coffee first thing in the morning, because they want to continue their fast. It keeps hunger at bay, is said to improve mental function, jump-starts your digestion, and stabilizes coffee's effect on blood sugar.
Even though having bulletproof coffee first thing in the morning has all those benefits, I prefer to have my cup of coffee after my morning smoothie, around mid-morning, after I have some protein in my system. I still get the effects of the coffee, and the caffeine lasts for a long time because it has coconut oil in it.
The original recipe for bulletproof coffee calls for non-toxic coffee, free of herbicides and pesticides. It also contains MCT fats. One ingredient that bulletproof coffee normally has in it is grass fed butter or ghee, which obviously isn't happening here, so today I share with you a dairy-free Bulletproof Coffee.This Vegan Bulletproof Coffee is great for adding coconut oil into your diet! #veganketo Click To Tweet
Can You Make Bulletproof Coffee with Coconut Oil?
Yes! That's what this vegan bulletproof coffee recipe calls for. You can also use coconut butter or MCT oil.
Great Way to Add Coconut Oil to Your Diet
Bulletproof coffee is not only a great way to add coconut oil to your diet, but it also helps the caffeine to last longer and digest at a slower rate. Just the fact that the caffeine lasts longer than regular coffee is a bonus for me!
I admit that it takes a little getting used to having coconut oil in your coffee, but I find that it helps to add a little almond milk or full fat coconut milk for an even better consistency. I especially like the coconut milk because it has the consistency of whipped cream, so it feels more indulgent.
When you blend the concoction, it creates a creamy texture. Unlike if you were to put a dollop of coconut oil into your coffee, which has a consistency just like you would think: oily. There have been times that I have done that too, out of sheer laziness. I really don't mind it as long as I add some almond or coconut milk too.

How to Make This Recipe
Blend freshly brewed coffee with coconut oil or coconut butter, and unsweetened almond milk or full fat coconut milk for some creaminess in a high speed blender.
- Do not blend hot coffee in a Nutribullet! It doesn't do well with hot liquids. If you need to use it, blend room temperature coffee in it and warm it up in the microwave.
- Use MCT oil in place of coconut oil. You could also add almond butter or macadamia nut butter to make it extra creamy.
- Add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg or other spices. You could even add mushroom powder or cacao powder but they both will add a couple of grams of carbs depending on how much you add.
- Swap out the stevia for your favorite sweetener.
- Add vanilla extract or peppermint extract for some flavor.
- Instead of the almond milk or coconut milk, pour in some vegan keto Mint Chocolate Coffee Creamer.
Can Vegans Have MCT Oil?
Most MCT oil is made with coconut oil or a combination of coconut oil and palm kernel oil.
