Description

a bulletproof coffee protein latte recipe for a dreamy, creamy, healthy latte that is beyond delicious. this healthy bulletproof coffee latte is full of satisfying protein from your favorite whey or plant-based protein powder & healthy fats from coconut oil. the best part is how completely easy to make at home! paleo & whole30 friendly. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups hot brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (dairy milk, nut milk, other non-dairy milks, etc.)
  • 1 teaspoon organic coconut oil
  • optional: 1 scoop plant-based protein powder (Tone It Up Vanilla & Chocolate are my favorites!)
  • optional: 1 scoop collagen peptides (Vital Proteins is my fave!)

Instructions

Add the brewed coffee, your milk of choice, and organic coconut oil to a high-speed blender. If you’re using a protein powder &/or collagen powder, add them in at this time as well. Blend the coffee for about 30 seconds, until all coconut oil is melted & coffee is frothy. Enjoy immediately. Creamy heaven! 


Notes

  • Protein powders: My favorite topic of conversation. When it comes to taste, quality of ingredients, nutritional value, & price, I cannot recommend Tone It Up’s protein powders more highly! They’re my absolute favorite. Their plant-based proteins have a very reasonable amount of calories & grams of protein, plus no added sugars. Vanilla is my go-to. Chocolate makes a suuupeer chocolatey bulletproof protein mocha. ? Coconut has a great natural coconut flavor. You can’t go wrong, honestly. When it comes to collagen peptides, I love Vital Proteins – it offers great beauty benefits, such as stronger hair & nails! 
  • Milk: Use whatever milk you like best or works best for your body for this bulletproof coffee protein latte. I love the added protein & low sugars of Fairlife’s milks. I’ve also made this bulletproof coffee protein latte many, many times with unsweetened vanilla almond milk – you can’t go wrong! 
  • Blenders: Whenever you blend hot liquid, you’ll want to  leave some room in your blender to allow for the heat to expand as it blends. If you’re using a large blender, like a Vitamix, this shouldn’t be much of an issue, as there should be plenty of room in the blender, but if you’re using a individual serving sized blender, like a Nutri-Bullet you’ll just want to leave a little room in the cup. I currently use & highly recommend this Vitamix – it’s a workhorse & will last forever! Before I bought my Vitamix, I used a Nutri-Bullet for many years & it works totally fine for this recipe! 
  • You can absolutely turn this into bulletproof coffee iced protein latte (it’s super yummy!), but you’ll want to start first with hot coffee. If you start with room temperature/cold coffee, neither the protein powder nor the coconut oil emulsify into the coffee properly. Blend as described above, then cool and serve over ice.
