This Keto latte or Fat Burning Coffee will help you reach your daily fat macro and burn fat while enjoying the most delicious dairy-free bulletproof coffee.
An easy low-carb keto recipe 100% Dairy-free, Paleo, Vegan, and Gluten-free.
What is a keto latte?
A keto latte is a variant of the popular coffee latte. It’s a coffee drink made with espresso, healthy fat, and dairy-free steamed milk.
My keto latte is 100% dairy-free and uses only wholesome plant-based ingredients to help you burn fat while enjoying an easy-to-digest coffee drink.
While some dairy products are acceptable on a keto diet, they may be more difficult to digest, and this fat-burning coffee will be easy on your guts.
What is bulletproof coffee?
Bulletproof is a commercial brand that makes a special fat-loaded coffee. It’s so popular that it has become a synonym for coffee made to support your ketogenic diet.
So it’s like a regular coffee or latte, just made with additional fat. So you’ll find recipes made with MCT oil or sometimes coconut oil plus either butter or ghee.
Bulletproof coffees can be used while you are doing your intermittent fasting. Since fat doesn’t alter your blood sugar levels, bulletproof coffees won’t break your fast!

What do I need to make a keto latte?
You need very few ingredients. I am listing below any substitution you can make to create different keto bulletproof lattes to your taste or ingredients availability.
1. Good quality coffee
Espresso coffee. I used my Nespresso coffee machine, served 1 long espresso to reach 1/4 cup of espresso coffee. I recommend you have a blend of Nespresso coffee capsules at home.
Choose a coffee capsule intensity that matches the time of day. If you drink your keto latte in the morning, I recommend the maximum coffee strength – capsule from 9 to 12 capsule.
For afternoon coffee drinkers, a level 6 or less will be better to avoid caffeine impact on your night sleep. If you don’t have a coffee machine, you can use fresh brewed coffee too.
Can I make a keto cappuccino or keto caramel latte?
You can’t use flavored syrup on a keto diet as they contain a huge amount of sugar. I don’t recommend artificial sweeteners either, as they can kick you out of ketosis.
The trick to creating a quick caramel latte, vanilla latte, or keto cappuccino is to use flavored Nespresso capsule or flavored stevia drops like caramel or vanilla.
2. Healthy fat to boost fat burning
- Cocoa butter. Most keto latte recipes will suggest you use butter as a creamer. I don’t really think it is easy to digest, and the flavor of butter in coffee is not for everyone. That’s why I recommend you use a plant-based fat source, cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is the fat used to create chocolate. It has a silky smooth texture with a delicious ‘white chocolate’ flavor. It has no dairy, no sugar. It is 100% pure plant-based fat including contains oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that decreases the risk of heart disease.
- MCT oil is a must-have on a keto diet. MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. You can see MCT oil as a super fuel for your body. MCT oil is quickly burned and used by your body cells, boosting your fat burning process and helping you lose weight faster.
- Cream. I love to use coconut cream as a dairy-free option, but you can use heavy cream if preferred.
3. Dairy-free Milk
- Almond milk – I always use Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk from Almond breeze. This almond milk has no sugar added, few net carbs, and it’s the only dairy-free milk creating a lovely silky foam when frothed. It makes your keto latte even better than the real thing.
4. Optional- Sweetener and cinnamon
- Sugar-free crystal sweetener. It’s up to you to sweeten your coffee. I recommend 1 or 2 teaspoons of erythritol or Monk fruit sugar. You can also use stevia drops if preferred.
- Cinnamon– it not only adds a delicious spicy flavor to your latte, but it also helps decrease blood sugar level making this spice a great addition to a keto latte.
Why is it a Fat Burning Coffee
This keto latte is a fat-burning coffee recipe as it contains 52% of fat to help you fuel your body with the necessary amount of fat to reach ketosis.
Ketosis is the natural state your body enters on a keto diet to start burning fat as the first source of energy.
Which tool do I need to make a keto bulletproof latte?
You absolutely need a blender, any kind of blender that will pulse the espresso with oils at high speed. It’s this process that will create a delicious bulletproof coffee, the base of the keto latte.
If you don’t have a blender, you will end up with 2 layers, one with the coffee and one with the oil. It won’t get creamy, and it wouldn’t taste good.
I use a KitchenAid professional blender, but a simple NutriBullet would work just as well.
A milk frother is great to foam almond milk. It’s highly recommended to make a creamy-smooth latte using Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond milk.
Keep in mind this is the only brand that froths so well! It creates the best milk foam. You won’t regret it!
