What is bulletproof iced coffee?
Bulletproof coffee is usually a blend of freshly brewed coffee, MCT oil or grass-fed ghee, and collagen. This coffee is great for high-fat and low carb lifestyles. When blended together, this drink will deliver a latte style creaminess and will also give you a ton of energy and cognitive function. In addition, because this coffee is high-fat, it satisfies and fills you up. I will often sub a bulletproof coffee for breakfast and it easily holds me over until noon.
What’s the purpose of adding Collagen and MCT oil to my drinks?
Most days I always add collagen and MCT oil powder or oil to my coffee. This combination not only delivers great health benefits, but it also makes this iced coffee latte extra creamy. Collagen is a form of protein, so adding this to your coffee can help to keep you full and boost your protein intake while supporting your connective tissues and overall health.

How does MCT oil and how does it benefit my health?
MCT stands for “medium chain triglycerides” or “medium chain fatty acids.” They’re types of fat most often derived from coconut oil but sometimes made from palm oil. MCT oil is colorless, odorless, and stays liquid at room temperature, making it the perfect fat to add to food, smoothies, and coffee for extra energy and brain-boosting benefits.
My favorite MCT oil to use is the Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder. I find that it dissolves better and give more body to my coffee.
