Keto Mocha Chip Frappuccino

Keto Mocha Chip Frappuccino

It’s been so long since I’ve been to Starbucks that I don’t even know if these are available anymore, but 10 years ago this was my favorite. I have finally found an amazing, healthy recipe to replace the insanely high sugar original.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup ice

1/4 almond milk

1-2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

15-20 drops stevia

1/2 tbsp moringa greens powder

1 scoop chocolate ketone powder OR 1 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2-1 tbsp instant coffee or 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee

Water to top

1 tbsp stevia chocolate chips, crushed (optional topping)

Directions:

1. Dissolve instant coffee in a small amount of hot water. You can also use brewed coffee.

2. Put ice in bottom of blender/bullet cup.

3. Pour cream over ice.

4. Add remaining ingredients to cup.

5. Blend until smooth. Garnish with chocolate crumbles.

Keto Butter Coffee

Keto Butter Coffee

Clearly I’m fond of beverage recipes. Lately I’ve been drinking a cup of this coffee in the mornings¬† (and making the kids a decaf coffee or decaf chai version), and it’s plenty of fat to hold me over until lunch. As a tandem nursing mom, that isn’t easy to do! I lost nearly ten pounds this week–granted, we’ve been hiking everyday and I’ve got a lot to lose, but it’s very exciting.

A delicious modified version of bulletproof coffee.

Author Kristy

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Coffee My family uses Elite instant coffee
  • 1 Tbsp Butter We use Kerrygold
  • 1 Tbsp MCT or coconut oil
  • 3 Drops Liquid stevia
  • 2 Tbsp Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp Collagen hydrosolate powder Optional--I don't use this in the mornings, but put it in the kid's drinks. We use Great Lakes brand.
  • Dash Himalayan salt

Instructions

  1. Brew coffee.

  2. In a blender (or a milk frother or whatever, I use a magic bullet) combine everything. Let butter and oil melt.

  3. Blend until frothy, about 5 seconds. If you are using a bullet like me, be careful! Pressure can build up quickly.

  4. Pour into a mug and enjoy.

Butter Pecan Coffee

Butter Pecan Coffee

Excuse the dirty countertop.

I just noticed that this nomdescript picture looks strikingly similar to my picture of keto cocoa, but they are different, I promise. I love the flavors of fall, and even though the seasons haven’t noticeably changed much here in southern California, my mind has still switched over to the autumn mentality. What better way to kick off the beginning of fall than butter pecan flavored coffee?

My husband is a creature of habit, but when he tasted this instead of falling back on his regular cup of coffee, he said, “Oh wow I want that.” That’s a win in my book.

Butter Pecan Coffee

Delicious, aromatic blend of butter, pecans, and cinnamon added to your regular ol' cup of Joe. 

Ingredients

Pecan Cream

  • 1/2 Cup Pecans Soaked overnight and drained
  • 1/4 Cup Almond milk

Coffee

  • 1-2 Tbsp Pecan cream Store remaining in fridge
  • 2-4 Drops Liquid stevia Or other sweetener to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp Salted butter
  • 1 Mug Coffee Leave room for frothy deliciousness. Use whatever coffee you like--I use Elite instant coffee.
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Tsp Allspice

Instructions

  1. Soak pecans overnight. Drain water.

  2. Combine soaked pecans and almond milk. Blend until mixture is a smooth consistency. 

  3. Pour your cup of coffee.

  4. Add butters, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, sweetener, 1-2 tbsp of pecan cream mixture to blender (I use a magic bullet.)

  5. Pour coffee over mixture. Allow butter to melt for a moment before blending. If you use a bullet like I do you need to be quick, and take the lid off fast! Don't let the pressure build up inside from the heat.

  6. Pour into mug. Should be bold, frothy, and delectable. 

This would be amazing with maple syrup in it, but alas, I am simply not able to do that yet.
