MCT oil in your cup of coffee? Really? Yup! Turns out, there’s every reason to add MCT oil to your morning coffee.  And, to be honest, I’m quite obsessed with this oil and what it can to my body, so I have no problem making it part of my routine.

For starters, repeated research shows that MCT oil can speed up metabolism and regulate bowel movements. Even more impressive, it can help raise HDL cholesterol while improving energy levels. Of course, there’s no better way to ingest the oil than to add it into my favorite beverage!

What follows is a rundown of MCT oil recipes you can try out. Oh, and before then, here are some of my favorite MCT Oils to help you get started the right way.

Ingredients

  • One cup of high-quality coffee.
  • One to two tablespoons of MCT oil.
  • One to two tablespoons of grass-fed butter (unsalted).

Method

Blend the ingredients and enjoy!

Be sure to use filtered water to get rid of chlorine. That way, the coffee’s taste will shine through.

When you’ve mixed the ingredients, pour into your cup, and drink while it’s hot. One more thing – make sure you blend the components long enough to achieve frothy consistency. The same way you would want to have your latte at the coffee house.

Note – consider trying the original MCT oil coffee, especially if you’re getting started.  Then, you can move to dress it up.

  • Two tablespoons of MCT oil.
  • One to two tablespoons of Great Lakes Gelatin.

Collagen such as Great Lakes Gelatin makes your concoction thicker. It also gives you cup a protein boost. By extension, this enables you to fight hunger pangs. I recommend this recipe if you’re undergoing intermittent fasting.

Why else is this one of my favorite recipes? Well, because Great Lakes Gelatin offers other health benefits as increase muscle, skin, and joint strength. Consider buying the green version if you’re looking for something tasteless.

I vouch for this recipe if you’re a superfood addict like me. In fact, this is my to-go-to recipe whenever I want to take the goodness in my cup of coffee a notch higher.

Enthusiasts call Change “the holy grail of mushrooms” – and for some good reasons. It is chock full of antioxidants fungus to boost your immune system.  So, be sure to toss one or two teaspoons into your blender, and you’re good to go! Now, this is a brew that’ll come in handy before you get bust with your office work.

Pumpkin Spice

Ingredients

  • Two tablespoons of grass-fed butter (unsalted).
  • Two tablespoons of MCT oil.
  • One cup of coffee.
  • One cup of coconut milk (unsweetened).
  • Pinch of salt.
  • Nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.
  • A three-quarter cup of pumpkin puree.

Method

Add to your blender and mix

Note – you have to remove any layer of solids from your coconut milk before mixing with other ingredients in your blender. The idea is to make sure that you whip the solids into a tasty dressing. You can serve the drink hot or cold, depending on your preference. Even then, I suggest that you pour it over ice and garnish with a spritz of cinnamon.

Ginger Bulletproof Coffee

Ingredients

  • Two tablespoons of grass-fed butter (unsalted).
  • Two tablespoons of MCT oil.
  • One tablespoon of gingerbread spice per two tablespoons of coffee grounds.

Method

Add to your blender and mix

Be sure to dust the cinnamon spice over your coffee before you brew and bend.  I recommend this recipe if you’re in pursuit of a low carb drink that will give you the energy to run all day. One cup will enable you to stay in excellent mental and physical shape.

Of course, you can alternate MCT oil with coconut oil to add some sweetness. Still, use coconut oil sparingly since you don’t have to make the gingerbread sour and take away the sweet spice.

The Bottom Line

While these aren’t the only coffee and MCT coffee recipes out there, they’re some of my favorite. And the beauty of it is that they’re super easy to prepare. You’ll also find them in most coffee shops.
