Summer’s Coming: Iced Bulletproof Coffee Recipe, Plus Coffee Ice Cubes Too

You know summer is coming when the weather starts to heat up…and when readers start writing in asking for the best way to make iced Bulletproof Coffee! 🙂

It’s delicious and tastes more like a coffee milkshake – recipe below.  Or if you just want to spice up your hot Bulletproof Coffee, experiment with the top 15 Bulletproof Coffee Hacks – variations that are beneficial to try out to see if they work well for you, make sure that you are not making these common mistakes.

And remember: you can blend whey protein into your iced Bulletproof Coffee, but continue to blend only collagen protein into your hot Bulletproof Coffee (here’s why).

How to Make Classic Iced Bulletproof Coffee

  • Blend up a hot Bulletproof Coffee (official recipe here) just like you normally would, but use *ghee* instead of butter – it will not separate out when iced.
  • Pour over ice.
  • Enjoy!

How To Make Blended Iced Bulletproof Coffee with Whey Protein

  • Blend your coffee, grass fed butter, and Brain Octane or XCT oil until a layer of froth forms at the top.
  • Add ice to the mixture and blend until smooth.
  • Lastly, Add 10 – 40 grams of Whey Protein AFTER completely blended, then LIGHTLY blend the whey in just until it’s mixed in.
  • Optional: For an ultimate Bulletproof ice cream like consistency, blend in one or two raw egg yolks BEFORE the whey!

How To Make Hot Bulletproof Coffee with Collagen Protein

  • Blend your coffee, grass fed butter, and Brain Octane or XCT oil until a layer of froth forms at the top.
  • Add 10 – 40 grams of Collagen Protein AFTER blended, and then LIGHTLY blend the collagen in just until it’s mixed in. Do not overblend and ruin the collagen. I usually add more collagen depending on how active I was the previous day, or if my muscles are sore from exercising.

How To Make Upgraded Coffee Ice Cubes

  • Just brew coffee like you normally would, pour into an ice cube tray, then freeze.
  • I like my ice cubes extra strong so that they taste delicious after they melt, so I make espresso strength coffee for these.
  • Note: they may stain your ice cube trays a bit brown if your trays are plastic not glass – go glass!  Otherwise, they’re still worth it when it’s really hot outside, and you will not have to worry about watered down iced coffee, yuck!
