There are numerous ways to make a delicious bullet proof latte… try one of these combinations!

  1. Just use 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk instead of coconut oil and butter
  2. Use the combination of coconut oil to butter that you find you come to like. I like having a tablespoon total of a mixture of both with a splash of coconut milk…I really don’t measure though;)
  3. You can use green tea bags or matcha green tea powder (we have a link at the top).
  4. Sweeten to your taste.  Most of the time I do not sweeten with anything. Sometimes I use stevia, or a tiny bit of raw honey if I want a treat before bed. Do what works for you!
  5. You can add in some bone broth protein or collagen peptides for good collagen protein and to make this a true meal replacement.
  6. Heck, you don’t even have to use green tea! I also love doing this with chi tea and other black teas.

Dr Jockers Comments:

I am a huge fan of doing a fat burning coffee recipe in the morning to get your body burning fat and producing ketones.  For those that do not do well with coffee…this keto matcha green tea has all the same benefits and even more antioxidant and cancer fighting potential!

Green tea is rich in the polyphenol antioxidant catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).  This antioxidant is thought by most to be responsible for the health benefits linked to green tea consumption.

EGCG is considered to be one hundred times more potent than vitamin C and twenty-four times stronger than vitamin E.  The powerful ability to scavenge free radicals makes green tea one of the best anti-aging herbs.  EGCG is one of a handful of unique antioxidants that has shown an ability to influence mutant DNA formations to potential reverse chronic disease states.

Green tea contains caffeine but it is less than half of that found in coffee.  The amount of caffeine found in green tea really varies depending upon the amount of tea used, the brand and the quality.  The first infusion of green tea leaves is the highest quality and has the most amount of caffeine.

It is extremely important to get organic green tea as the conventional may be highly sprayed with toxic pesticides and herbicides.  Many coffee shops and big companies carry green tea that is commercially produced and contains an abundance of environmental toxins.  This is not healthy and should be avoided.

Pregnant women and newborns shouldn’t drink large amounts of green tea as its ability to bind to DHFR may increase the risk of folate deficiencies in the newborn and increase the risk of spina bifida or other neural tube disorders.

  1. I am currently starting Keto and am trying to count my macros… Is there any way you could put the calories, fats, protein, etc…? Thanks!

    1. Hey Michelle, I don’t recommend keeping strict count of macros so I do not go out of my way to include them in these recipes. You could enter the individual ingredients of this recipe into a tracking program such as CRON-O-Meter to figure this out if desired. Without the Bone Broth protein this recipe is pure fat so it is ketogenic. Adding the Bone broth protein will increase the protein content which could cause an elevation in blood sugar for a small number of people. Using a ketone monitor can be helpful to see how your body responds to certain meals.

      1. great ideas dr. jockers’ and thanks for being mindful of altenative options. Also, just a thought, but one could go quite big with the fat content and up-level the mix wix with MCT’s (maybe one of the few with just capric and caprylic acid-like the bulletproof blend and Mercola’s MCT’s I believe) as a potent vegan version!

  2. Hi there just wanted to give yoս a quick heads uρ. Thе words іn your article ѕeem to be running off
    the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if thіs is ɑ formatting issue or ѕomething to do
    witҺ web browser compatibility Ƅut I figured I’d post to let ʏߋu know.
    Tһe design look ǥreat thоugh! Hope you ɡet the issue solved soon.

  3. Can you do any of the above without losing weight?
    I follow a plant based diet but in doing so have lost a little weight
    I am 160cm & weigh 45.8kg
    I don’t have any major health issues but have arthritis in both thumbs & have read that fasting might help in that area.
    Would appreciate any suggestions.

    1. Hey Frances, yes you can fast to help with this but you may want to add back good high quality animal protein during your feeding windows to get the appropriate protein and nutrients you need to maintain lean body mass. Blessings!

    1. Yes it can. If you are anemic, better to drink green tea away from meals. If you have high iron to begin with (which is fairly common) it can be beneficial to drink with meals to lower iron and oxidative stress levels.
