Keto Fat Bomb Coffee Pops
I don’t know about you, but making Bulletproof Coffee is kind of a pain. I don’t drink coffee every day, but when I do, I make it in 1 of 2 ways:
- Using Fat Bomb Coffee Pops
- Or adding it all by hand, one cup at a time
I want to dedicate this blog to these wonderful little Fat Bomb Coffee Pops! I first saw this concept on (can you guess??) Pinterest.
At first, I thought these things contained coffee and you just would grab one for a little fat/caffeine hit. I was wrong.
BUT – isn’t that a great idea?
I’m going to make that little creating soon.
But, back to the topic of today! So what the heck are these things?
They are tiny little fat bombs that you make ahead of time and simply pop into your morning coffee. Talk about a dream come true.
No more cutting up butter, scooping out coconut oil, measuring spices.
SO what do you need? Well, you can get all creative and use shapes like I did, or you can simply use a mini muffin tin and liners.
The nutrition calculation (.1 net carbs) is for 2 pops in your coffee. You can throw as many as you want in there!
I often will put at least 3 in there. But some people want to stay under 50 calories and minimize carbs, so I made the base serving size 2 and then you can build on that!
What is Bulletproof Coffee?
Traditional BPC is one cup of coffee, 1 tablespoon of MCT oil or coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. You then blend it and drink it. Basically, it is a high-fat black coffee.
I think it is important to understand why BPC is included in the Ketogenic Lifestyle and why you can look forward to it instead of being scared of it!
According to the Bulletproof folks themselves, there are 6 main reasons to drink BPC:
1) Keeps you full for hours
2) Curbs hunger
3) Supports your hormones
4) Tastes awesome
5) Promotes mental clarity
6) Increases fat burning
There is another great benefit that I want to mention as well. Many people who participate in the Ketogenic Lifestyle also do Intermittent Fasting.
Usually, that involves skipping breakfast and not eating solid food until the afternoon. They do, however, often drink BPC. Well, at least some do. There is debate around whether BPC breaks your fast.
Does it break a fast?
Now you might be wondering if that is cheating since fasting usually involves only water. Well, the Bulletproof folks believe that it does not, in fact, break your fast since BPC is only fat.
Since there are no carbs in the drink and it does not affect insulin, their opinion is that it will continue the fast.
There are other opinions out there as well that suggests that BPC does, in fact, break a fast and that anything over 50 calories does just that.
My advice would be to make your own determination. I drink BPC through my fasting.
There are quite a few calories in BPC, which is completely fine. It is an easy way to increase your fats especially at the beginning if you are struggling with eating more fats.
If BPC essential or required? Not at all. It does all the things that are listed above and really is great way to start the day, but you don’t need it.
What about the chocolate?
The next question on your mind might be: Well, Trina, will chocolate BPC break my fast? It is MY opinion that, no, it will not.
Why? Because it is only .1 grams of carbohydrate. Yes, .1. That is SO minor that I’m just going to say it doesn’t count.
BUT, certainly, if you feel that .1 grams of carbohydrate will break your fast then only drink this version on your nonfasting days.
You will either need:
How Do I Get 3 Pretty Layers?
Simple! You make the main recipe and pour it into the molds, almost filing each one.
Then freeze. The chocolate will naturally separate into the darkest at the bottom and medium in the middle.
Then you add the heavy whipping creeam, freeze, and BOOM – you have your 3 colored layers!
Make sure to keep them in the freezer so they don’t melt!
- Combine the butter and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl and melt. Or melt over the stove - your choice!
- Stir and then add unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla and liquid stevia. MIX WELL!
- Once well mixed, fill mini muffin molds almost to the top. Leave room for a smidgen of heavy whipping cream. It makes about 45.
- Put in the freezer for 20-30 minutes until set and cold.
- Add about 1/4 teaspoon of heavy whipping cream to each mold or until it is full.
- Put back in the freezer for 30 more minutes.
- Then you can pop them out of the molds and put in a seal-able container to keep in your fridge.
- Now you are all set to pop one in your coffee whenever you want!
- Serving size is 2!
