Bulletproof Coffee Recipes to Curb that 3PM Crash

If you're caffeine-sensitive, these bulletproof coffee recipes might be best saved for the morning, and go great alongside a bowl of oatmeal or your protein shake!

Pro tip: always avoid having coffee on an empty stomach! While intermittent fasting ideology may promote this idea as it can "keep you full", there is risk to your esophagus and gut lining. That's why bulletproof coffees have become so popular! By adding a healthy fat like MCT oil, ghee or grass-fed butter, it keeps your stomach better coated. 

If you're new to the world of bulletproof, try out this Collagen Coffee recipe to get you started using MCT oil and Collagen Powder. 

1. Pumpkin Spiced Bulletproof Coffee

Bulletproof coffee has become a hit, especially with the rise of the ketogenic diet. We know that healthy fats are key to keeping us satiated and keeping our brains a little sharper. So when you're craving that fall comfort, reach for this drink rather than heading to your local coffee shop. 


  • 1 cup black coffee
  • 1 tsp. MCT Oil 
  • 1 tsp. collagen powder
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin purée
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, ground allspice) 
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup (optional)


  • Brew coffee based on instructions (we love using a french press as it keeps all of the beneficial oils!) 
  • Place all ingredients in a blender 
  • Enjoy!
