Butter in My Coffee? (Does She or Doesn't She?)

You may have heard about folks incorporating more fat in their diets by adding butter and coconut oil to their coffee or tea. Some call it butter coffee and has been popularly known as bulletproof coffee. It sounds odd to put butter in your coffee, right? Of course, butter is essentially cream, churned into semi-solid form. Still, weird sounding.

I like the concoction (see how I make it below). But I don't drink it often. In this quick clip I explain why.

Should I Put Butter in My Coffee?

How I Make My Buttered Coffee:

[I brew coffee from freshly ground beans and use a Chemex Coffeemaker but any type will do]

1.5 ounces coffee
16 ounces water. Pour over and steep for about 4 minutes
28g Kerrygold butter (that's about an ounce by weight)
28g coconut oil
28g Jordan's Skinny Gourmet salted caramel syrup
blend it all up until as frothy as you like.

The information I share is based solely on my understanding of that research. We are all responsible for our own choices, including what we put in our mouths and there’s no substitute for each of us checking things out ourselves. And I’m not a medical professional in any way. Go Keto With Casey is not a medical site. “Duh,” you might say. But best to make it clear to all.  I welcome questions, comments and even civil criticism. I’m still learning. So, if you have something to add, go for it.
