Do People Really Add Butter To Their Coffee?

"Butter in your coffee? Well, that sounds horrible!"

If people aren't used to something, they immediately dismiss it as some type of early 19th-century circus oddity that's never to be taken seriously by sophisticated, elitist society.

They snarl at the idea of somebody putting butter in their coffee because they're so conditioned to believe that cream and refined sugar are the only things that belong in coffee, aside from pumpkin spice and hazelnut flavorings.

While those things are quite delicious, in my opinion, I can tell you from personal experience that yes, people really do add butter or ghee to their coffee, for preference, taste and potential health benefits.

I used butter in my sugar-free coffee while on a diet a couple of years ago to correct my insulin resistance, and I assure you it's quite tasty.


Why Would You Add Butter to Coffee?

Not everyone wants milk in their coffee. Some people either don't like milk, or they are lactose intolerant and have trouble digesting it. They may also not like cream or half-and-half either just out of preference.

Butter is a low lactose alternative to milk that you can use in your coffee to replicate that frothy texture you achieve when using traditional creaming substances.

Tip: if you're lactose intolerant, choose heavy cream over milk. Milk contains the most lactose out of any dairy product, while heavy cream does not contain much. Most lactose intolerant people can stand a small amount of heavy cream in their coffee.

If you're on keto, the carnivore diet, a low carb or low sugar diet, or low lactose diet that forbids or limits sugar and milk consumption, organic unsalted butter from grass-fed cows is a great choice to lighten up your coffee.

Or you can just drink it black like a man, right?

People say that all the time, but there's nothing more manly than drinking butter lol.

Beyond flavor, people claim there are health benefits to butter coffee.

The Possible Health Benefits of Butter Coffee

Many people say that butter coffee boosts their energy and makes them feel full throughout the day, making calorie cutting and dieting much easier.

Both coffee styles (with butter or milk) will curb your hunger some, but that's likely because you're drinking regular coffee (and not decaf) that contains caffeine.

Caffeine is a stimulant that lowers ghrelin and is a known appetite suppressant.

Still, many claim that the butter coffee has more of this effect than a traditional cup of coffee with sugar and milk.

Everyone is different, so it may work for you!

Another variation of butter coffee is 'Bulletproof Coffee', which adds a teaspoon or two of MCT oil (Medium-chain triglycerides) with the organic unsalted butter.

Many claim bulletproof coffee is a powerhouse concoction that will improve your mental clarity and balance, help to shed unwanted pounds, curb hunger and give you razor-sharp focus and energy.

More studies are needed to officially confirm these claims, but many people swear by it, so why not give it a try!

It's probably healthier than the store-bought coffee "creamers" most people use every day, which most of the time isn't even cream.

The Coffee Creamer You're Using Might Not Be Cream

People will judge you for putting butter in your coffee--saying that you should be using milk or cream like a normal human being--while reaching for a container of powdered creamer.

Some people never look at the ingredients on the food products they buy. Many people assume that the powdered coffee creamer that they're using is just dehydrated cream or milk.


There's no actual cream in many of those powdered coffee "creamers" that you're using.

Don't believe me? Check the back of your Coffee Mate® powder right now.

I started using a powdered coffee creamer when I first went on the Keto diet. The front of the container said 'dairy-free, sugar-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free and lactose-free', so I put it in the shopping cart without looking at the ingredients label.

Rookie mistake.

I stopped using the powdered creamer when I saw it was loaded with corn syrup solids, hydrogenated vegetable oil and a bunch of other unnatural crap.

Yuck! And they think butter is gross? Come on now!

The solution?

Just use a good natural organic unsalted butter.

Blended the right way (many use a blender for their butter coffee), it's tasty and will make your coffee creamy and delicious.


The Bottom Line

When it comes to coffee, many people prefer milk and sugar and perhaps a little flavoring like hazelnut or pumpkin spice.

Some people, however, prefer to use butter in their coffee and there's nothing wrong with that. People have been using butter in their coffee for hundreds of years, making it a time-tested alternative to using cream.

If you want a possibly healthier alternative to milk that makes your coffee frothy and delicious, give the butter a try! Just make sure it's organic butter from grass-fed cows.
