Helpful Notes:

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 fat burning 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!

    1. Paul, some artificial sweeteners are bad for you I agree as the FDA made the companies like Sorbitol and Aspartame put warnings on their licensed products.
      Stevia comes from a plant, you can even grow your own and make it yourself, my friend does this to eliminate the processing and costs.
      Xylitol is recognized by the dental association and has been around for more than 50 years with no side effects, it also is natural and comes from the sap in hardwood trees.
      Honey and maple syrup are also safe sweeteners you can use liberally in anything but beware of the calories, they are higher than regular sugars.

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

    2. Jen, I also found some coffees like Starbucks and Tim Hortons to be very acidic…I thought it was just because they let the coffee sit or brew too long. Not the case since Starbucks now brews fresh every cup…it has to do with the quality of the bean and also if it is truly organic.
      Hope this helps.

      I am a coffee connoisseur and have tried many brands over the years.
      Cosco’s Kirkland Columbia is also a pure Columbian coffee with no bitterness,
      and cost effective.

      1. Cain’s Coffee is not that acidic. I can handle it fine. I cannot handle the other brands like Folgers, Starbucks etc.

    3. It is my understanding that your stomach is supposed to be acidic. Low acid causes acid reflux and other digestive problems. Blood is alkaline so if you’re not injecting it you should be fine:) I finally listened to my mother’s tips and stopped taking antacids years ago. I take organic apple cider vinegar for digestive problems.

        1. Is ths true? Cause it seems to be the opposite for my body. The more acidic my stomach – the more I have acid reflux and other digestive problems. I drink a low acid coffee. I cannot eat foods that are high acidic. Apple cider vinegar seemed to eat my stomach. At least that is what it felt like. I still have to take the purple pill at night to keep the acid reflux down. Help?

  1. 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?

    1. 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.

        1. I’m using “Melt”, it has no dairy and made with coconut, flax seed and sunflower oils for I can not even find grass-fed butter in the supermarkets here in Canada. It’s a great dairy-free spread in place of butter.

  2. 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?

    1. Luanne,

      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).

  3. 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.

    1. 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!

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

    1. 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.

        1. 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.

  5. 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?

    Thanks!

  6. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. Rita, it’s best not to do labs until after 6 months on keto. My labs are better than ever in all areas. I’ve completely changed my doctor’s view of keto.

        1. Hey Leslie, great to hear about your results! I do think you can do labs before 6 months…typically 90 days is a good period of time to begin to see changes.

  7. 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

        1. High amounts of carbs and fats on the diet are not recommended but if you use this as a breakfast replacement and hold off on consuming your first meal until later in the day then this can still be great!

  8. I like to add eggs in mine with a handful of spinach minus the stevia. The eggs make it smoother with added nutrition but the spinach may give it a slight bitter taste which you can get used to

  9. Sounds like an awesome recipe! Will give it a try tomorrow. I’m currently doing mct, collagen, cinammon, grass fed butter and maca powder ( +ashwadanga and mushrooms). If I’m trying to remain in a fasted state, will the maca and collagen take me out of this?

  10. What about high cloister levels? My doc wants to put me on meds..they said no oils, with only olive oil few times a week..to try stir fry with broth and squeeze lemon,lime or orange on salads if I feel need for dressings. I already eat eat no or low sodem/ salts due to high BP and am working on my type 2 dibetcic issues.. My A1C is now at 6 after losing 100 lbs and mostly eating veggies n some limited fruits with no fat cottage cheese or lil bits of lean meat or fish

    1. Hey Jacquelyn, low fat and low salt are not the solution for cholesterol and blood pressure in my experience. Balancing blood sugar and lowering inflammation are more important which can be done very well with a ketogenic diet (high-fat).

    1. I have not done so but it should be okay Karen! You may need to re-blend it to keep the fats emulsified. I just use an Organic turmeric powder that can be found in the spice section of most grocery stores!

  11. I’m starting Keto today. I didn’t blend anything I just put it in my contigo cup and shake it before every drink. Is it important to blend? Also I was looking into an egg fast. Am I ok to still drink this with my egg fast?

  12. I enrolled in the Keto Summit and purchased it because of the mass of information that I could not keep up with during that week. I have begun to watch the videos however I have a question that I have not found a complete answer to. My question is this…Is Keto safe, and is it effective if your gall bladder has been removed? I had mine taken out 25 years ago. The only thing my doctor told me at the time was to avoid carbonated drinks.

  13. I love the taste of this. I take several supplements and tumeric is one of those.

    I am 50 years old, recovering from a recent hip scope with numerous procedures done. I picked up 4 pounds of weight in my waist area, and I am limited in my workouts until my labrum heals. I am going to continue this for awhile. Thank you.

  14. I’m having trouble getting the cinnamon to dissolve. I get left with gritty cinnamon at the end. Is there a way to fix it? I’m using a glass blender.

  15. I’m excited to try this recipe!! I have been doing the Keto diet for 9 months and have already lost 74.5 pounds!! 🙂

  16. HELLO,
    Would this be ok to drink with Hypothyroid meds like Synthroid? I try to wait t least 30 minutes after meds before Coffee and usually wait 3 hours before I eat a breakfast snack ( my crazy work schedule)
