This recipe is from my wife Angel, who loves to make food, home and body care recipes that support people’s journey to optimal health.  Check out my wife’s website and facebook page where she shares stories and pics about our life.

Fat Burning Coffee Ingredients:

2 cups of organic coffee

¼ tsp of turmeric

¼ tsp of cinnamon

1 tsp of XCT oil (or coconut oil)

1 tsp of grass-fed butter

Dash of sea salt (best is pink salt)

1 squirt of vanilla stevia

1 squirt of English toffee stevia

Yield:  2 cups of fat burning coffee

Fat Burning Coffee Instructions:

  1. Brew 2 cups of coffee
  2. Pour into a glass blender while it is still hot
  3. Add all the ingredients and blend

You can make more depending upon how much you want, simply multiply the recipe.  Be sure to use a glass blender for this recipe as you wouldn’t want to pour hot coffee into a hard plastic blender as it will cause the plastic chemicals to leach into the blender.

Feel free to use the natural sweetener of your choice and to the flavor of your choice.  The dash of salt takes away the “bitter” after taste of stevia and makes this super flavorful and enjoyable.

You can also start small with the XCT oil and gradually work up.  If you take too much, you may notice indigestion or diarrhea.  Most people tolerate 1 tsp at a time just fine.

If you don’t have XCT oil around you can use MCT oil or coconut oil for this recipe.  We like the XCT oil because of its ability to immediately produce ketones in the body for fat burning and energy.


Dr Jockers Comments:

This coffee recipe will help you get into ketosis, burn fat and reduce inflammation quickly!  For many people, this is their breakfast…as the good fats help to provide satiety and the combo helps to balance blood sugar, increase energy and improve mental output.

Mmmmm…coffee!  I love the smell and the flavor but went 15 years without it because I thought it couldn’t be a part of a healthy lifestyle.  Now, I know that unless someone has extreme adrenal fatigue or a major sensitivity to coffee that it can be used to improve fat burning and overall mental performance.

How does this recipe combo work to be so effective?  Coffee is rich in the polyphenolic anti-oxidants chlorogenic and caffeic acid that help to improve circulation and stabilize blood sugar. Cinnamon helps to improve insulin sensitivity and turmeric inhibits the major inflammatory NfKb pathway.

The grass-fed butter is rich in small chain fats such as butyrate and omega-3 fatty acids which de-inflame the body and it contains the fat soluble anti-oxidants vitamin A, D, E and K2 as well as phospholipids for healthy brain function.

Finally, the XCT oil helps to boost up the production of ketones very quickly in the body which helps to stabilize blood sugar and improve brain cell formation.  The combination is extraordinary and the taste is amazing!

    Pretty hard to follow anything that recommends using artificial sweeteners

    • Dr. Jockers April 1, 2017 at 5:57 am #

      Yes for sure Paul, that is why we only recommend natural sweeteners such as stevia!

  2. Jen March 31, 2017 at 10:11 am #

    Also I find coffee to be very acidic so I am finding it hard to see the benefits of this one

    • Sue June 13, 2017 at 11:34 pm #

      I discovered a pinch of baking soda added to my coffee in the filter before brewing creates a perfectly smooth alkaline brew. No acidity.

    Wouldn’t the addition of black pepper make the tumeric more bioavailable, or is adding the medium chain fatty acids, such as coconut oil, enough?

    • Dr. Jockers April 2, 2017 at 10:09 am #

      Great question Nancy! Peperine, which is the active nutrient in black pepper can help with curcumin absorption, but it can also aggravate some individuals with leaky gut. There is debate in the field on this. If you tolerate it well, than adding a pinch of black pepper may help you. The MOST IMPORTANT thing with turmeric/curcumin absorption is having it with fat…such as the grass-fed butter and MCT.

    Dr. Jockers,

    I love this coffee recipe. I think I will make it apart of my morning routine. Yummy!

    I have a question that’s a little off topic. I hope you can help me.
    I’ve been trying to fight brain cancer with the Ketogenic diet. What should my macros and calorie intake be?

  5. Luanne April 18, 2017 at 6:01 pm #

    Would love to try this – I use turmeric in my green tea. Trying to save my gallbladder, any suggestions?

    • Dr. Jockers April 20, 2017 at 12:12 pm #


      If you are experiencing gallbladder issues then it may be a better idea for you remove the butter in this recipe and use just the XCT oil for the time being. In the meantime follow some of these strategies to aid in your gallbladder healing (here).

    This is surprisingly yummy!!! Questions…I count my daily calories along with my macros, currently, could you provide the carb, protein, fat amounts in this recipe.

    • Dr. Jockers May 19, 2017 at 10:08 pm #

      Sorry Tammie I don’t keep track of those values! Following this recipe your only macro will be fat from the butter and XCT oil. You could simply measure the amount of butter and oil you use based on the nutrition label and estimate the fat content of this recipe!

    Thank you!

    I don’t have a glass blender but this handheld milk frother works just great as long as you don’t overfill your coffee cup! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00Q4O5MY0/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1497376940&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=ikea+milk+frother+100.763.20+silver&dpPl=1&dpID=31aVtHLS3-L&ref=plSrch

    If you have this for breakfast I’m assuming this begins your eating window and would break the fast?

    • Dr. Jockers June 14, 2017 at 10:49 am #

      Hey Krista great question! Technically you would be breaking your fast. Since this recipe’s only macronutrient is fat (no protein or carbs), your body will not have an insulin response. This means your body will still receive the metabolic benefits of fasting and you will burn more fat.

      • Jeff August 7, 2017 at 4:02 pm #

        Did you mean “wouldn’t” be breaking the the fast?

        • Dr. Jockers August 9, 2017 at 8:58 am #

          No Jeff, It would be breaking the fast so you would lose some benefits of strict water fasting but without an insulin response you would still be receiving some fasting benefits. Some people struggle with the feeling of being hungry while fasting and will take the trade-off. If you want a combination of both, this for breakfast during the week and perform a 24 hour water fast from dinner Saturday night to dinner sunday night.

    I enjoyed reading everything… thank you so much…..

  11. Sumadhi June 15, 2017 at 1:11 am #

    Is it fine if i dnt include stevia, vanilla n salt in my drink.

    • Dr. Jockers June 16, 2017 at 1:21 am #

      Yes Sumadhi that is okay. You do not have to add those!

  12. Anna June 15, 2017 at 5:02 am #

    Can you use ghee instead of butter? I have a dairy sensitivity but so far I have been ok with ghee. Or what do you recommend as a dairy free version?


    • Dr. Jockers June 16, 2017 at 1:22 am #

      Yes Anna! Most people with dairy sensitivities do well with Ghee because the milk proteins are removed.

  13. Rita brophy September 8, 2017 at 10:37 am #

    Thanks, I’m definitely going to try this coffee in the morning and like idea of adding turmeric and cinnamon, but I might cut out the dairy products as I’ve been trying to do the Low carb high fat plan but my cholesterol has gone sky high and doctor is saying I have to go on statins! Any advice you could give me would be much appreciated.

    • Dr. Jockers September 9, 2017 at 6:41 am #

      Hey Rita, certain cholesterol numbers often become elevated when switching to a high fat diet. It is important to look at the ratios between HDL, LDL, and Triglycerides. Sometimes an extreme elevation can be due to inflammation, infection, or blood sugar imbalance.

  14. Jennifer Morris September 8, 2017 at 7:48 pm #

    I will give this a try without the Stevia and salt. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  15. Eleanor September 9, 2017 at 5:37 pm #

    Hi I’m wondering how much and how often should I drink this coffee per day? And whether I use it to replace a meal or meals?

    Thank you

    • Dr. Jockers September 11, 2017 at 9:36 am #

      Hey Eleanor, you could replace your breakfast with this coffee to support ketosis. For most people I do not recommend more than 1-2 cups of coffee per day!

  16. Eleanor September 12, 2017 at 1:00 am #

    Thank You!
    Looking forward to trying this coffee.

    • Dr. Jockers September 15, 2017 at 2:31 pm #

      Yes it is awesome! You will love it!
