Butter coffee is an excellent jump start to your day. Blending high-quality, nutrient-rich fats into strong coffee offers sustained energy and keeps you sated for long periods.

2 cups (480 ml) strong-brewed hot coffee (dark roast works well)

¼ cup (60 ml) heavy cream, warmed

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

Stevia or other low-carb sweetener (optional; we prefer ours unsweetened)

Ground cinnamon, for garnish

  1. Place all the ingredients in a high-powered blender. (You can use a regular blender to make this, but the coffee won’t be as frothy.)
  2. Blend on high until smooth and frothy, about 1 minute.
  3. Divide the mixture between two 8-ounce (240-ml) mugs, sprinkle each with a pinch of ground cinnamon, and serve immediately.
