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:

  1. Using Coffee Bombs
  2. Or adding it all by hand, one cup at a time 

I want to dedicate this to these wonderful little Keto Coffee Bomb pops! I first saw this concept on Pinterest and was quite intrigued. 

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 creation soon.

But, back to the topic of today! So what the heck are keto coffee combs? 

They are tiny little fat bombs that you make ahead of time and simply pop into your morning keto coffee. Talk about a dream come true.

No more cutting up butter, scooping out coconut oil, or measuring spices.

Tools Needed for Coffee Bombs

So what do you need to make coffee bombs? 

Servings Size

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.

Do Coffee Combs Break a Fast?

Now you might be wondering if that is cheating since fasting usually involves only water. Well, the many people believe that it does not, in fact, break your fast since BPC is only fat.

Since there are almost 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 suggest 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 healthy fats, especially at the beginning if you are struggling with eating more fats.

Is BPC essential or required? Not at all. It does all the things that are listed above and really is a 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.

How to Make Coffee Bombs?

Simple!  You make the main recipe *below) and pour it into the molds, almost filling 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 cream, freeze, and you have your 3 colored layers!

Make sure to keep them in the freezer so they don't melt!

What Does a Coffee Bomb Do?

Coffee Bombs either contain coffee or they don't. These coffee bombs do not. So these keto coffee bombs are meant to put into your coffee to provide healthy fat, sustained energy, and delicious flavor.

Why Put Fat In Coffee?

Believe it or not, there are many reasons to put fat in coffee[*]! Not only does it give your coffee a creamier texture, but the added calories can provide you with a boost of energy. Fat also helps slow down the absorption of caffeine, which means you won't suffer from jitters and other potential side effects of drinking too much coffee at once.

6 Common Questions About Bulletproof Coffee

6 thoughts on “Keto Coffee Bomb”

  1. Can I make this without the liquid stevia? I hate sweetener in my coffee in general. But I also do not love stevia

    1. Certainly! The stevia is only to make it just a tad sweeter. But if you prefer no sweetener then leave it out!

  2. From the sounds of the recipe there are only two layers the coffee, and the whipping cream. Yet in your picture I see three layers, what am I missing? Also can I use powdered sugar substitute instead of stevia? I really don’t like stevia by itself I like it mixed with erythritol.? Thank you
