Is bulletproof coffee vegan?

The classic bulletproof coffee recipe created by Dave Asprey is not vegan as the original recipe contains butter. Butter is a dairy coming from animal sources and therefore it is not vegan approved. However, there is an easy way to replace butter and make a vegan version of keto coffee. Keep reading!

How to make a vegan version of bulletproof coffee?

A vegan bulletproof coffee is a vegan keto recipe to support your weight loss journey. It is a typical keto recipe served for breakfast or during your fasting window, to replace your regular coffee latte. In fact, regular coffee latte contains dairy like milk or heavy cream that are:

  • not vegan
  • contain carbs

All you need to make this creamy vegan keto coffee, a plant-based fat source that

  • brings enough fat to your drink to make a creamy, latte coffee
  • doesn’t add carbs

Cacao butter and MCT oil

Some recipes suggest almond butter as a butter replacement in vegan bulletproof coffee. While it is a tasty option, I don’t recommend this choice because almond butter adds carbs to your drink. Bulletproof coffee is the best drink for burning fat since it is carb-free.

  • Cacao butter – this is the most natural plant-based substitute for grass-fed butter in a vegan keto coffee. Cacao butter is pure fat, it won’t add carbs to your coffee but creates the best creamy smooth texture, similar to coconut milk or any plant-based milk.
  • MCT oil – or unrefined coconut oil. This ingredient is the key to creating a fat-burning coffee. In fact, MCT oil, also known as Medium Chain Tryglycerid oil, is a small chain of fat easily assimilated by your kidney. Therefore it quickly brings energy to your body helping you stay in ketosis in the morning and keeping you full and satisfied. It’s the best oil to help you fast longer without feeling hungry.
  • Coffee – strong black coffee, you can choose your favorite coffee like organic coffee, brewed or instant.


Blending the ingredients

The key to making a tasty, creamy vegan bulletproof coffee with cacao butter is to:

  • Melt the cacao butter before adding in the coffee.
  • Blend all the ingredients together in a blender or in a high cup with an immersion blender.

Is it safe to blend hot liquid in a blender?

Yes, most blenders can handle the temperature of hot coffee. If you are unsure, refer to your blender instructions to check if hot liquids can be added to your jug. vegan keto drinks

Coffee flavoring

If you want to serve this vegan bulletproof coffee as a keto snack, instead of breakfast, it is fine to add some keto vegan ingredients that slightly up the carbs of your drink. Some tasty additions are:

  • Cacao powder – add 1 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to your blender.
  • Sugar-free vanilla syrup – add 2 teaspoons of keto fiber syrup to the blender, they are vegan-friendly and many flavors can be used like vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, and more!
  • Keto sweetener – a pinch of erythritol, stevia drops, or monk fruit. This won’t add net carbs to your drinks, so you can use these even if you intend to serve this coffee for breakfast during your intermittent fasting period.
