I have been a coffee drinker since my Marine Corps days. Back then my First Sergeant taught me to make coffee that was more like mud. I would add a packet of hot chocolate to it to make it more tolerable. In later years I learned to make better coffee and would drink it with just a few drops of liquid stevia.
Once I discovered eating a ketogenic diet I also learned about keto coffee. Many people also call this Bulletproof Coffee. If you are going to be technical, Bulletproof Coffee is a brand name using specific products. This recipe is for a generic version but you can also buy the Bulletproof brand of MCT oil and coffee.
I follow a ketogenic nutrition plan. This means that my body is adapted to using ketones for energy instead of glucose. To maintain this fat burning process I eat a high fat, low carbohydrate diet. Keto coffee is easy to make and supplies me with a generous serving of fat and deliciousness in the morning. On weekdays this is all I have for breakfast. It’s frothy and similar to a latte.

A delicious frothy coffee to add healthful fats and boost ketones for more mental clarity and energy.
Add ingredients to blender and blend until frothy. Be cautious when blending hot liquids. They sometimes splash out of blender.
Warning! When you first make this start slow with the MCT oil. It takes time for your body to get used to it. I would start with just one teaspoon for the first few days and gradually increase the amount up to one tablespoon. Otherwise you may end up with what's known in the keto community as "disaster pants."
