You've probably heard of Keto Coffee by now, but maybe the concept of adding butter or cacao butter to your coffee has seemed too odd to test it out. Or perhaps you don't see how it's possible that it can be useful while you are fasting. It's a food! Shouldn't it break your fast?!


Intermittent Fasting is an incredible tool to tap into fat burning mechanisms and achieve your weight loss and wellness goal. Insulin is our "storing" hormone, so when it is high, fat burning is shut off. One of the perks of Intermittent Fasting is the studied improved insulin sensitivity and fasting insulin levels. One of the main goals with the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle protocols is to further aid in improving the insulin response in order to tap into fat burning mechanisms efficiently.


Carbohydrates are the main driving force for increasing insulin. As you eat carbohydrates, these are broken down into glucose in the body which stimulates insulin to be released. Because Keto coffee contains zero carbohydrates, it won't drive insulin up.


Now that you know why Keto Coffee is so epically incredible... how can you make it?!


Today, I'm sharing 5 different versions of Keto Coffee (or tea!) that will help you achieve your wellness goals!

The OG Keto Coffee

This is my go-to Keto Coffee option that I have EVERY. DAY. I'll even make it while I travel (by using THIS technique). This is typically the option you'll see AENpeeps Keto Coffee cheers-ing with. Because Keto Coffee doesn't contain any carbohydrates that will cause an insulin response, it's also perfect to have during your fasted period while following the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle protocols.


Ingredients:

12-16 oz. brewed mold-free, organic coffee*

1 Tbsp. grass-fed butter (or less depending on your preferences - you can also use cacao butter for a vegan alternative)

1 Tbsp. unrefined coconut oil (or less depending on your preferences)


1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend on medium/high until it's reached the desired amount of froth. Make sure to be careful while blending as this is a hot liquid! You can learn my whole technique for getting the best froth HERE.


*Purity Coffee is the only brand I use. You can get 10% off all your orders at checkout with the code "autumn".

Keto Chai Tea Latte

This is for all my tea lovers out there! Although I'm obsessed with coffee, tea can also make a rather frothy and delicious alternative. And just like with the OG Keto Coffee, it doesn't contain carbohydrates that cause a spike in insulin.


Combine the following ingredients in a blender and blend on medium/high until frothy!


Ingredients:

12-16 oz. brewed black tea

1 Tbsp. grass-fed butter (or less depending on your preferences - you can also use cacao butter for a vegan alternative)

1 Tbsp. unrefined coconut oil (or less depending on your preferences)

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp. ground ginger

1/8 tsp. ground cardamom

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/8 tsp. ground cloves

pinch of salt.
