Bulletproof Tea Recipe

 

What is bulletproof tea?

Bulletproof tea is the coffee-free alternative to Bulletproof coffee. Therefore it is a fat-loaded version of your regular tea, enriched in healthy MCT oil and grass-fed butter.

Benefits Keto Bulletproof Tea

Can you make bulletproof tea? 

Yes, you can make bulletproof tea and you do not have to love black coffee to start a ketogenic diet. While bulletproof coffee is the most popular keto breakfast drink, keto bulletproof tea is as delicious and can be made in many variations, depending on the tea type you are using.

BEST KETO Recipe for Bulletproof Tea

Use the recipe provided below and adapt with the recommendations listed here based on your favorite bulletproof tea flavors:

  • bulletproof black tea – use a black tea bag.
  • bulletproof matcha tea – using 1/4 teaspoon of matcha powder instead of a tea bag and top your drink with 1 cup of frothed unsweetened coconut milk.
  • bulletproof green tea – use a green tea bag.
  • bulletproof chai tea – use a black tea bag, 1/4 teaspoon chai tea spices per cup, and top the drink with 1 cup of frothed unsweetened almond milk.
  • bulletproof ginger tea – replace the tea bag with a 1-inch fresh ginger slice that you soak in boiling water.
  • Bulletproof rooibos tea – use a tea bag or rooibos tea, sometimes also called red tea.

How to make a bulletproof hot tea? 

Choose your tea variety

First, prepare your tea. Choose the tea flavor you like. Note the best tea leaves for bulletproof tea are strong tea varieties like black tea or green tea. However, all tea varieties, if unsweetened, contain zero carbs and will be perfect to create your recipe for bulletproof tea.

So it is safe to use any tea variety, but the best bulletproof tea flavor will be achieved with one of these:

  • black tea
  • green tea
  • rooibos tea

Brew your tea

Once you have picked your tea, you have to brew it in freshly boiled hot water for 2 minutes. You can make this in a bowl or directly in your cup of tea.

Blend all the ingredients together

This is a MUST-DO. You must blend your bulletproof tea ingredients together on high-speed using either:

  • a blender – place all the ingredients into the blender and blend on high speed for 20 seconds until creamy.
  • an immersion blender – place all the ingredients into a tall and wide container or mug and immerge the immersion blender. Blend until creamy,
  • a milk frother – froth all the ingredients into a tall tea mug until creamy and smooth.

How to make Bulletproof Tea?

This is the key to combining your MCT oil (or coconut oil) and grass-fed butter (or ghee) together. If you do not blend the tea and healthy fats at high speed, they will not combine and two layers will form in your drink. It is honestly the worst both visually and in terms of taste. So, you don’t want this to happen.

How does bulletproof tea taste like?

It tastes like a tea latte, it is smooth, creamy, and sweet if you choose to add some sugar-free keto sweeteners to enhance its flavor. The best keto sweeteners to add into your cup are:

  • 1-2 stevia drops
  • 1-2 tablespoons of erythritol

the BEST Bulletproof Black Tea

Would bulletproof tea break my fast?

On a keto diet, the definition of breaking the fast varies from person to person. Since bulletproof tea has zero carbs or proteins, all it does is adding energy from fat to your body.

It is commonly accepted that it is safe to drink one bulletproof tea or coffee during intermittent fasting. It helps you:

  • fast longer without feeling hungry
  • keep your energy levels steady – you will not feel tired
  • mind clarity and focus

Keto Bulletproof Green Tea

However, if you choose to define intermittent fasting as a period with no calorie intake at all, then you should not drink any bulletproof tea during your intermittent fasting period.

Benefits of bulletproof tea

The benefits of bulletproof tea are like bulletproof coffee. It brings a decent amount of quality fats that are quickly creating ketones, your favorite source of energy on a keto diet. So, if your body is in ketosis, meaning your body does not have carbohydrates to produce energy, it will use the fat from MCT oil and butter in your butter tea drink to produce energy. Since fat slows down digestion, you will feel:

  • Fulfilled quickly, no more constant hunger
  • Focused
  • Energized – bulletproof coffee contains MCT oils that are quickly absorbed by the liver and create ketones for a steady blood sugar level, no more energy crash.
  • Eat less and lose weight

When should I drink it?

You should not drink bulletproof tea at night simply because tea contains theine. Like caffeine, theine is a stimulant and it will disturb your sleep. Also, it is recommended to use bulletproof tea or coffee as a fulfilling drink in the morning to help you fast longer.

Keto bulletproof Tea

Vegan bulletproof tea options

You can adapt this recipe to be dairy-free and therefore suitable for a vegan keto diet. Simply replace the grass-fed butter by the same amount of either:

  • cocoa butter
  • coconut oil
  • almond butter
  • MCT oil
