Keto Coffee: 4 Ketogenic Coffee Recipes to Try- Thomas DeLauer… Look at all this fat and look at all this coffee. What could this possibly mean? It means four different kinds of keto coffees. That’s right. I’m going to give you four different recipes, each of which has a different purpose. So no matter what your keto goal is, there’s going to be a coffee for you. So let’s go ahead and let’s get right into the fun stuff.
All right, so the cool thing is every single one of these keto coffee recipes is simple to make. Obviously, you can use a measuring spoon if you want to, but I’m just going to kind of eyeball most of this stuff because this is something that you’re going to be making frequently and you’re not going to always have a measuring spoon handy, so everything might just be a little bit eyeballed. So bear with me if my measurements are a little bit well, not so perfect.
The whole idea behind keto coffee is you’re mobilizing fats with the caffeine and you’re getting the fats into the systems so that the liver can produce those ketone bodies and give you the energy and the fuel that you need. But each one of these does something slightly different. So the first one that I want to start with is your morning keto coffee. This is your inflammation fighter. So this is going to be the one where you want to keep dairy to a little bit of a minimum, but you’re going to have ingredients in there that are going to bolster your anti-inflammatory responses within the body to make it so that you can live a clean, healthy, energetic life.
All right, now I want to move into the lunch replacement. The reason I’m doing a lunch replacement keto coffee is simply because a lot of times people want a solution to be able to sub out lunch with. Maybe they don’t want to go out to lunch or they don’t have time or they just liked the taste of keto coffee. Well, the thing is you don’t want to have the copious amounts of fat that you might have in the morning. So we’re going to reduce the fats a little bit. I’m going to change some of the micronutrient profile, but also because it’s mid-day, we’re going to go ahead and we’re going to switch to decaf. Believe it or not, the polyphenols in coffee’s still support good ketone production and still support fatty acid mobilization. So personally I like to cut caffeine out afternoon just because otherwise it keeps me up. So I’m going to go ahead and got my decaf here. Okay.
All right, now we’re getting to the fun one. All right. I call this one the treat/calorie bomb. This isn’t one that you want to have all the time. This is when you made me want to do two times a week. I’m going to show you why, because it’s freaking amazing. All right. You’re starting with you’re fully leaded coffee. Okay? Again, two times a week you can do this. I got my two tablespoons of grass-fed butter. Okay. Then I’m still going to go ahead and I’m going to put in a full teaspoon of Ghee, so I’m doing butter and Ghee. The reason I’m doing the Ghee is because I want the butyric acid out of it.
You see butyric acid is a short-chain fatty acid that actually helps feed the cells within your small intestine, so we’re talking about the enterocytes, the cells that line your small intestine, they’re literally living things and they feed off short-chain fatty acids and Ghee is one of the only places that you can actually get those short-chain fatty acids in an actual consumer will form. Usually, it’s partially digested food that contributes to those short-chain fatty acid populations in your gut. All right, so now we’ve got that, but now we’re going to add the big no-no. All right?
All right, now we have the really interesting one. This isn’t even coffee at all. This is if you have a craving issue. So the cool thing about Matcha, which I’m going to use, okay, straight up Matcha. Matcha is finely ground baby green tea leaves. So you’re getting all the power of the epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which is the EGCG that actually gives you the powerful effect of green tea. Okay? But you’ve got it in a form that only has like 40 or 50 milligrams of caffeine. So even if you had this mid-day, you’re probably not going to be up all night.
As always, make sure you’re keeping it locked in here on my channel. If you have ideas for future videos or questions about ingredients that you want to add to any one of these recipes, put them down in the comment section below. I’ll see you in the next video.
