keto coffee.

If there is one food or drink that is a staple in any diet, it must be coffee.

There is a reason it’s called liquid gold. Most of us can’t function without at least one cup a day, with many of us requiring several.

For those of us following a low-carb diet, there is a secret twist on the magical beverage that provides many health benefits, including weight management.

Is coffee keto? 

Black and unsweetened coffee are suitable for a keto diet. It has no calories or carbs. Where carbs and hidden sugars come into play is what we may add to it. Sugar, milk, and flavor syrups can add tons of carbs to a single drink and kick someone out of ketosis.

Luckily, you can make a keto coffee that is a game changer for any low-carb dieter.

Why this recipe works

  • Rich and frothy– This coffee tastes like a frothy latte but with no milk!
  • An easy meal replacement– Full of healthy fats and caffeine, this drink can keep you fueled and energized for hours! 
  • Ready in two minutes– All are made in a blender or using a hand mixer. 
  • Easy to customize– Add your favorite sugar-free syrups, sweeteners, or even coffee creamer!

No preparation is necessary: a cup of this kind of coffee will keep you going for hours until you dig into a keto lunch!

What is low carb coffee made of?

The ingredient list to make this recipe is simple. If you’ve made any other keto recipe before, you should have all of these in your pantry and fridge. Here is what you’ll need:

  • Brewed coffee– Instant coffee or espresso will also work. 
  • Coconut oil– Adds an extra layer of richness and energy. 
  • Butter– Unsalted butter. 
  • Heavy cream– Heavy whipping cream or double cream works. 
  • Cinnamon– Just a pinch to add some warming flavors. 
  • Sugar substitute- Only add this if you prefer a sweetener coffee. My favorite keto sweeteners are a brown sugar substitute or a keto powdered sugar

How to make keto coffee

This recipe is quick and simple and takes seconds to make.

Add all your ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend for 30-40 seconds until frothy. Pour the coffee into a glass and scoop out tablespoons of the froth on top.

What does this coffee do to your body? 

Like a standard cup of caffeinated coffee, there are plenty of benefits. These include a boost in energy levels and promoting weight management. However, this blend of keto coffee does even more.

The combination of coconut oil and butter helps promote weight loss, because of its appetite suppression properties. It also promotes good digestion, which can often be an issue when following a low carb diet. 

What coffee can I drink on keto? 

Many people assume that plain black coffee is the only keto-friendly caffeinated beverage on the market. Luckily, that is NOT the case, and there are many delicious ways to enjoy this liquid gold.

Here are seven keto-approved coffee recipes with less than 2 grams of carbs per serving.

Nitro Cold Brew

Nitro coffee has taken the keto world by storm. It has no carbs and virtually no calories but yields the smoothest and silkiest beverage you’ll ever drink. Nitrogen is added to the coffee-making process giving it that glorious layer of foam on top.

Net carbs per serving: > 1 gram. 

Bulletproof coffee

The most famous low carb coffee, bulletproof coffee follows a similar formula to this recipe. The only differences is that it uses MCT oil instead of coconut oil and has no heavy cream or milk added. 

Net carbs per serving: 1 gram.

Iced Coffee

Nothing beats an iced coffee on a hot day…or anytime. By swapping out the milk for a dash of heavy cream and keto condensed milk, you have something sweet, refreshing, and satisfying, without the sugar.

Net carbs per serving: 1 gram.


Who said you can’t enjoy Starbucks at home? Sure, there are tons of keto Starbucks drinks, but you can also make it at home for a fraction of the price and none of the carbs.

Net carbs per serving: 2.5 grams. 

Cold Brew

Making your own cold brew concentrate saves you tons of money and also lets you make a cold brew coffee. Rich and dark on its own, add some sugar free caramel syrup or simple syrup for some extra sweetness.

Net carbs per serving: > 1 gram. 

Almond milk latte

Everyone’s favorite milk-based coffee drink gets a keto makeover! Per one cup serving, unsweetened almond milk has just 2 grams of net carbs. Add some espresso and froth it up, and you’ll still be looking at a low carb drink!

Net carbs per serving: 2.5 grams. 

Whipped coffee

Made popular on TikTok several years ago, Dalgona coffee is brewed coffee and sweetener blended together until frothy.

Net carbs per serving: 1 gram.

Storage tips

Coffee is best enjoyed freshly made. However, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to two days. When ready to consume, microwave for 30-40 seconds until hot.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between this coffee and regular coffee?

The key difference is what is added to the coffee. In regular coffee, you’d typically add milk, sugar, and/or cream. In keto coffee, you add coconut oil, butter and either half and half or heavy cream.

Is keto coffee good to lose weight?

Regularly drinking coffee, especially keto coffee, is fantastic for weight loss. It naturally suppresses appetite and, when consumed in regular intervals, can reduce snacking and overall meal consumption.

Can you drink this coffee everyday?

You can drink 1-2 cups of keto coffee every day. Drinking anything caffeinated in excess can lead to interrupted sleep, so monitor your tolerance if concerned.

Can I use whole milk instead of heavy cream?

While whole milk in small amounts is suitable for a keto diet, heavy cream is a much better option. Not only does it have fewer carbs, it also yields a much creamier beverage.

    I was very skeptical of this when I saw coconut oil and butter to be honest. It was sooo good. Blending it does make all the difference in the texture of the drink. I did add 6 tsp of monk fruit sugar and a tsp of vanilla extract to make it more tasty for my sweet tooth. (I added this to the two cup recipe 16oz of coffee). It was quite delicious and added no extra carbs or calories to my morning routine. Thanks!!

    So delicious!
    I was suspect of adding butter to my coffee and I am dairy free so I used Ghee instead. So good!
    Thank you for sharing your ideas!

  3. I have a stupid question. I stopped drinking coffee because of the caffeine. I do though like a cup of hot chocolate when it cold here in MN so could I use this or any of the coffee toppings in hot chocolate-I believe I got a hot chocolate recipe here on your site.

    Thank you for your time!

    Definitely the best way to enjoy coffee!! I don’t add the heavy cream because I don’t buy it, but it is rich enough without it. But, for me that 1 cup is a half serving!! 😉 I really have to quit being lazy and make some of your delicious mug recipes to go with it. 🙂 ~Thanks, Arman
