Ketogenic coffee or Bulletproof coffee can be beneficial for someone following a Ketogenic diet. The purpose of Bulletproof coffee is to get a high amount of healthy saturated fats into a person's system in order to assist with ketosis. Other than being great for our brains and improving mental clarity first thing in the morning, there are many other benefits such as improved metabolism, weight loss, stabilized gut health, and increased mood and strength. Below is the recipe I used to make a traditional cup of Bulletproof coffee while I was following a Ketogenic diet. Check out my YouTube video below which shows how to make not one, but three different types of Bulletproof coffee. Happy caffeinating!
