40+ MCT Oil Recipes That Aren't "Bulletproof" Coffee (2024)

40+ MCT Oil Recipes That Aren't "Bulletproof" Coffee (1)

Did you know… I think I heard about Bulletproof Coffee before I knew what MCT oil was?

Yes, I found out about MCT oil as Bulletproof Coffee began to take over the Internet. Or, at least, my little corner of the Internet.

Bulletproof coffee was (and still is) a real trend.Folks everywhere swear of its life-changing, energy-giving, fat-busting powers.

And you know what? I believe them. 🙂

What Is “Bulletproof” (or “Power” or “High Octane”) Coffee?

“Bulletproof” is actually a brand name. As in, there is a company who packages and sells ghee, High Octane Brain Fuel, and more specifically for adding to coffee known as “Bulletproof”.

Bulletproof coffee = a tablespoon or 2 of MCT oil and a tablespoon or 2 of butter or ghee emulsified into 8 to 12 ounces of black coffee brewed in a French press.

The acclaimed benefits of this concoction?

  • suppressed hunger
  • lasting energy
  • mental clarity

Furthermore, the added fat is reported to slow caffeine’s effects on the body, thereby reducing the negative effects of caffeine, like jitters and heart palpitations.

If you’d like to learn more about “official” Bulletproof coffee, their website explains all the things much better than I can. 🙂

And, for the record, I actually think this fat + coffee emulsion does have health benefits!

I’m just not a coffee drinker… 😉

So, I want MCT oil recipes that AREN’T Bulletproof coffee!

Stop. Back up. I feel like I’m getting ahead of myself.

Maybe you’re like, “Uh, what’s MCT oil?”

Cool. Let’s answer that!

“Uh, what’s MCT oil?”

MCT stands for “medium-chain triglycerides” and are fats most commonly derived from coconuts. MCT oil is a form of coconut oil, and all coconut oil contains MCTs. But, coconut oil isn’t PURE MCTs.

So, when the MCTs are isolated, the result is MCT oil — a tasteless, odorless oil that’s liquid at room or cool temperatures. (It will freeze, though.)

Although coconuts contain several types of fatty acids, there are just 4 types of fatty acids in MCT oil:

  • caproic acid (C6)
  • caprylic acid (C8)
  • capric acid (C10)
  • lauric acid (C12)

Only C6, C8, and C10 bypass your digestive tract and are processed by the liver as a quick and usable source of energy known as ketones.

Because MCTs occur is such small amounts in only a few foods, if you want them in a concentrated form, you have to use MCT oil. And, MCT oil can be a super healing, nourishing part of a clean diet — especially if you’re following a keto/low-carb/Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle or are following the keto diet for healing.

What MCT Oil Is Best?

Personally, I use Perfect Supplements MCT Oil.

What are the potential benefits of consuming Perfect MCT Oil?

  • Increased energy
  • Reduced brain fog, improved mental clarity
  • Supports a healthy metabolism
  • Aids in burning stored body fat (ketosis for weight loss)
  • Healing to the gut
  • Reduces inflammation

  • Has anti-viral and anti-fungal properties

All MCT oils possess these benefits… so what makes Perfect MCT Oil different or better?

One word: QUALITY.

When I shop for a product, I want to know where it came from, how it was processed, why it was processed, if it’s pure, if it’s clean, and if it’s ethical.

I’ve been known to call companies and sit on hold, waiting for someone higher up to answer the difficult questions I ask about any given product. I’m picky, y’all.
