This fat bomb of a coffee drink can help you to stay in fat-burning mode, avoid carb cravings, and give you a hefty dose of brain-fueling healthy fats. I tend to mix up how I made my version so like most of my recipes this isn’t an exact science. If you’re new to the fatty coffee game, start on the low side with the fats, maybe a teaspoon of each.
Make sure you use a blender for this! Mixing with a spoon or whisk is going to leave you with blobs of fat floating on top. ew.
- 8-12 ounces of strong brewed coffee
- 1-2 tsp ghee
- 1-2 tsp virgin coconut oil
- 1-2 tsp cacao butter
- 1/2 – 1 tbsp mct oil
- 1 scoop grass fed collagen peptides or gelatin
- optional: 1 tbsp hemp seeds*
If using hemp seeds, add all ingredients except the collagen/gelatin to a blender and blend on high for 1 minute. Add the collagen or gelatin and blend for another 10 seconds or so. If not using hemp, add all ingredients and blend on high for 10-15 seconds. Pour in your favorite cozy mug and enjoy!
Like I said, I switch up which types and how much of each fat I put in mine. Sometimes it’s just coconut oil and ghee. Sometimes just ghee and cacao butter. Sometimes mct oil and two of the others. Just depends what I have and what I’m feeling! I usually end up with about 2 tbsp of fat. But again, if this is new for you, start with less!
*When blended for enough time the hemp seeds impart a delicious creaminess and slight thickness that add to the warm hugginess (sure, that’s a word) of this breakfast (or anytime) drink!
