Keto Coffee is an excellent tool to use with Intermittent Fasting. Keto Coffee helps to boost satiety and prevent hunger that can commonly occur when you're brand new to fasting. However, it's important that you do Keto Coffee the right way so that you don't break your fast.
Today, I'm sharing three easy Keto Coffee drinks for Intermittent Fasting.
Keto Coffee Cheers!
The OG Keto Coffee
Here we have the original Keto Coffee. This is what I personally make every morning as a Nutritionist. The grass-fed butter provides short chain fatty acids (called butyric acid) that have been found to reduce gut inflammation.(1) The coconut oil gives you a boost of instant energy from the medium chain triglycerides. And the froth makes you feel like you're having a true latte experience.
To make your own Keto Coffee, simply combine 12-16 oz. of brewed coffee with up to 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter and up to 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a blender. Carefully blend until frothy!
You can also make a plant-based Keto Coffee by swapping out the butter for cacao butter. You won't receive the same butyric acid perks, but cacao butter will still provide the fats to keep you satiated during your fast.

Iced Keto Coffee
To make an iced "keto coffee", it's important to not use any sugar. This includes sugar from nut milk, oat milk and regular milk. This will break your fast. You also don't want to use butter or coconut oil, because these will get clumpy when cold and make for a not-so-great coffee experience.
Instead, you can make an iced keto coffee and remain in a fasted state by stirring one tablespoon of heavy cream or coconut cream (for a plant-based swap) into your favorite brewed coffee.
Cinnamon Vanilla Keto Latte
I like to find ways to incorporate cinnamon because it’s been found to have some potential blood glucose stabilizing and reducing effects (always a plus!) and this recipe does the TRICK.(2) I swapped out the coconut oil for a bit more of a vanilla flavor and added in heavy whipping cream for more of a “latte” feel. This recipe will contain slightly above 1g of net carbohydrates, so if you find that you’re sensitive to carbohydrates or new to Intermittent Fasting, this coffee will be best during your eating window. Our general rule of thumb with the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle is to stick to less than 1g net carbohydrates during the fast, making this recipe a bit borderline. You can slightly decrease the heavy whipping cream to get this recipe under 1g net carbohydrates.
Cinnamon Vanilla Latte
10 oz. brewed mold-free coffee (get 20% off your orders by using code "autumn" at checkout)
1 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream (preferably grass-fed and organic. Swap in unsweetened coconut cream for a plant-based alternative)
Up to 1 Tbsp. grass-fed butter (or cacao butter for a plant-based alternative)
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1. Carefully combine all ingredients in a blender. Start off by blending on low so that the coffee doesn’t splash out. Then slowly bring it up to high to get the amazing, keto coffee froth of your dreams!
