Butter Coffee Recipe
for the True Coffee Lover…
Before I share my butter coffee recipe, you need to know something incredibly important about me — I’m a huge coffee addict.
I absolutely love coffee in all its forms, especially its truest form – freshly ground, pressed, and black.
On rare occasion I do enjoy a simple latte or a touch of vanilla flavored almond milk, but the truth is — I like it unaltered most of all.
There’s something else you should know…
Before I created this power coffee recipe, I was constantly drinking a new cup of coffee just to make it through the day.
I always started with at least 10-12 oz in the morning, adding on an additional 6-8 oz in the afternoon, then another cup in the evening hours. It really didn’t seem to matter how much coffee I got in my system, my energy level never really changed.
Guess what though?! After I started drinking this butter coffee recipe on a regular basis, I began to notice a huge difference!
Do I still need coffee to become less zombie like in the morning hours? Heck yes!
Do I still drink way too much coffee sometimes? Also yes.
However, when I make time for myself by starting the day with this simple bulletproof coffee recipe — I definitely feel the difference.
The Collagen Difference
Why I use it in my Butter Coffee Recipe…
After some quick research on the benefits of collagen – skin, gut, and joint health were all advertised. I decided to jump on the band wagon and added collagen to my daily regimen.
My main purpose for trying was definitely joint health. I had some hip discomfort as well as constant knee popping and clicking. Keep in mind, I’m barely in the my thirties! However, my body was feeling much, much older.
So I broke down, got myself some collagen powder, started adding a scoop to my morning coffee, then waited and prayed for some results.
After several weeks, something struck me.
Sweet relief had come! My joint discomfort had definitely improved and it was so gradual I almost didn’t notice the change till it was practically gone.
I can’t say I’ve seen a huge improvement in my skin or gut health. However, I have had many people comment on my skin recently, so maybe there is a difference and I’m just my own worst critic? Most likely the case.
This was the start of my power coffee recipe, and it only gets better from here.
Creating My Secret Weapon
Finalizing my Butter Coffee Recipe…
Adding collagen powder to my coffee was just the beginning.
Before too long ghee & MCT oil joined the party.
End result? A bulletproof coffee recipe that changed my life.
Ghee is clarified butter.
Probably sounds like something you probably wouldn’t want in your coffee, right?
Absolutely Wrong. This stuff is fabulous!
Not only does it promote good digestion, but it’s also a natural mood and energy booster! Plus, it froths up real nice — adding an incredibly yummy and smooth flavor to my already delicious coffee.
MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides)
I seriously love this stuff!
If you are struggling with a little extra jiggle in your middle, this could be a great option for you. MCT oil can help with weight management and encourage a healthy body composition. Plus, it’s absolutely great for boosting your metabolism.
The plus side? It’s totally flavorless.
Momma’s Power Coffee
Simple Butter Coffee Recipe…
Ready for the main event? This bulletproof coffee recipe is where it’s at!
Freshly brewed or pressed coffee – around 10 oz
Multi collagen powder – 1 scoop or recommended dosage (mine is around 7g)
Ghee – 1 tbsp (my ghee of choice is a 50/50 blend of ghee and coconut oil)
MCT oil -1 tbsp
Optional: almond milk creamer or heavy cream.
First, I add the collagen supplement (and sometimes a little ground turmeric) into the bottom of my coffee cup.
Then, I pour my freshly pressed coffee over the top. Adding in the MCT oil & ghee. Yes, the gross looking oil separation is totally normal — don’t let that keep you from trying this amazing concoction!!
Last, I add a splash of heavy cream (or almond milk creamer) — and froth that bad boy!
Told you this was super simple, you guys!!
Frothing simply allows the oils and milk to combine, leaving you with a very smooth and enjoyable drink! You are totally welcome to skip the creamer or stir by hand — Just keep in mind that it doesn’t look nearly as pleasant without the frothing step.
Don’t have a frother? You can find my favorite HERE
Don’t use a french press? You can find the adapted directions (for Keurig users) below!
*Note, if using a Keurig coffee maker you can easily brew your coffee in a regular coffee cup or travel cup directly over the collagen powder! Then add the rest of your power coffee ingredients, froth, and enjoy!

Other Fun Add Ins
For Your Bulletproof Coffee Recipe…
At first I thought I had taken this power coffee recipe a little too far. However, the way I feel when I drink this on a regular basis totally has me sold. I feel incredible and it’s possible that I have even trimmed up a little. This coffee is liquid gold, you guys!
Additional add ins to try:
- 2 drops of peppermint vitality oil (my top pick!)
- a sprinkle of cinnamon and cardamom
- 1 drop cinnamon bark vitality oil
- Low Sugar or homemade whip cream
- 1/4 tsp Ground Turmeric
- Turmeric is a powerful tool against inflammation and is great for brain, heart, and gut! It also works with your immune system, not against it. Adding it to your coffee can heat up the flavor a touch. So if it’s not your thing, I highly suggest trying it in pill form instead (that’s typically my go-to option)!
