When it comes to dieting, the ketogenic ("keto" for short) diet stands out with its high-fat, low-carb approach. Not only does it help you reach your diet goals, but it's also wonderfully satisfying. Have you ever considered trying a keto coffee? Made with high-quality coffee beans, like Alex's Low-Acid Organic Coffee, the result is an incredibly creamy, high-fat coffee that you may just make your staple drink.
In this post, we'll guide you through an easy, less-than-a-minute keto coffee recipe that you can adjust to your preference.
Irresistibly Creamy High-Fat Coffee
You might be wondering, "how can a beverage like coffee, which lacks carbs, assist in a high-fat diet like keto?" The secret ingredient is butter. Yes, butter! Adding it to your coffee not only increases the fat content but also enhances the creaminess. To further elevate the creaminess and saturated fat content, this recipe involves coconut oil. Alternatively, MCT oil is a serviceable replacement.
Keto-Approved Coffee Extras
Even though our keto coffee recipe only requires three ingredients - brewed coffee, butter, and either coconut oil or MCTs - you can personalize it to your taste. For instance, you could substitute the butter with unsalted butter and salt. Adding cream is another way to enrich its texture.
While you can enjoy this keto coffee black, you also have the option to include a variety of keto-friendly additions. How about:
Adding unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk for an additional sweet touch
Stirring in sugar-free syrups of flavors like chocolate, vanilla, caramel, or hazelnut
Topping it off with whipped cream
Sprinkling sugar-free chocolate, cocoa powder, or 100% dark chocolate shavings
Sticking in a cinnamon stick or dusting ground cinnamon
Besides, you can transform this coffee into an iced variation by pouring it over ice, or blend it with keto ice cream for a refreshing milkshake-style treat.
This high-fat coffee makes an excellent breakfast companion that doesn't spike your carb intake. Drinking it early in the day could help you meet your macros by day's end. You could have it standalone, like the first thing in the morning or mid-morning.
Alternatively, enjoy your keto coffee with other low-carb breakfast options. You could have it alongside bacon or sausage egg muffin cups, scrambled eggs with cheese, or a bowl of berries and cream.
