Paleo + Whole30 Bulletproof Creamy Cashew Coffee
Paleo + Whole30 Bulletproof Creamy Cashew Coffee Recipe + Video – to support weight loss, brain function and sustained energy! Dairy free, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, keto, clean eating, real food.
I’d like you to meet my new favorite bulletproof coffee recipe that I am having every single morning. It has changed my life!
It is curbing my hunger like nobody’s business. I’m finding myself with tons more energy, and brain clarity too.
What Is Bulletproof Coffee?
Bulletproof coffee is coffee that is filled with healthy fats, usually grass fed butter (I use ghee to keep it dairy free) and MCT oil.
The combination of the caffeine from the coffee along with the fat from the ghee and MCT oil gives you a steady boost of energy, rather than a huge spike and rapid decline that you would experience with a plain cup of coffee.
How to Make Paleo + Whole30 Bulletproof Creamy Cashew Coffee
Making the creamy cashew coffee couldn’t be easier. In a blender you combine brewed coffee (I love dark roast!), ghee, MCT oil.
To give it additional protein I add in 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Collage Peptides, which is pure protein that boosts hair, nail, joint and gut health.
For some delicious creaminess I add in raw cashews. The cashews completely blend up in the blender, and it tastes like a dairy based coffee creamer! You’re going to love how creamy the cashews make your coffee! Pure, heavenly creamy goodness.
This is optional, but if I’m feeling like a bit more sweetness I may add in 1 pitted date. Be sure to leave this out for Whole30 and Keto!
Foamy Bulletproof Coffee
You don’t need any fancy coffee equipment to get a good foam on your bulletproof coffee. Just a high speed blender!
Add all the ingredients in and blend on high for 60 seconds. The blender will completely puree the cashews into a cream, and give your bulletproof coffee that foamy topping you love from your local coffee shop.
Other Bulletproof Coffee Add In’s
This is the basic paleo + whole30 bulletproof creamy cashew coffee recipe I love, but there are a few add in’s you could try to mix things up!
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder to give it a mocha vibe
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for extra flavor, especially if you’re not adding any date for sweetness, I find cinnamon gives it enough flavor you don’t notice it’s unsweetened
- 1″ piece of vanilla bean, just snip it off and throw the whole bean pod in to the blender
- a handful of ice to make it a frappe, love this in the summer
The possibilities are kind of endless, so have fun creating the perfect bulletproof coffee that will bring you joy in the morning!

I’m so obsessed with this coffee!!! I skipped the ghee and added some monk fruit for sweetness and it’s so good and keeps me full until lunch! I can’t believe how creamy the cashews make it.
Isn’t amazing how satisfying it is and you stay full all morning Megan. I just love it too!
I made this for the first time today. It’s pretty good but tastes a bit too “ buttery” for me. I saw you mentioned using coconut oil to another commenter. Could I use that in place of the ghee? I’m not a huge fan of ghee and savor my morning coffee, so would prefer the taste of coconut oil I think. And I have just a regular blender, so I did soak my cashews overnight and they creamed up great in the coffee.
If the coffee tastes too buttery for you, by all means substitute coconut oil for the ghee Karol. It’s really a delicious substitution. So glad to hear the recipe turned out well with a regular blender. Soaking the cashews really does make a difference.
Yum! I don’t do coffee (my stomach doesn’t love) but I just made this with a sugar free homemade chai concentrate for a bullet proof chai. :)
I am so impressed! What a clever idea to make a bulletproof chai Teresa! That sounds delicious!
Hi Natalie! Your video shows dates but your recipe does not? How much dates? I made the recipe version and it definitely needs a little sweet added!😄
If I want to make my bulletproof coffee a little bit sweet I will add one pitted date Jill. I didn’t list it in the ingredients because most of the time I do not add the date. It is delicious either way.
Can you just use ghee and not mct oil? I don’t have any mct oil.
I think it would still turn out fantastic without MCT oil Paula. You could leave the ghee amount the same or add a little more. You could also use coconut oil if you had it on hand. I sure hope you like it!
Mine came out super gritty and chewy with the cashew pulp. I used a Ninja Blender. Any tips on getting away from the cashew oatmeal at the bottom of the cup?
It may be that the Ninja wasn’t powerful enough to completely blend the cashews into cream Betsy. You can soak the cashews in water for 24 hours or boil water and put the cashews in and soak for at least one hour. This will help soften the cashews to help the blender the properly. I sure hope this helps!
Which Ninja Blender do you use? I have the Kitchen System, and I use the 16 oz blend cup. Turn auto iq on, and hit the extract button, and let it go through that cycle. If it’s gritty, you may need to hit the smoothie/frozen drink button after the extract. I have noticed that I have to hit the frozen smoothie after the extract button if my cashews or other nuts are older! I hope that helps!
Now, to the recipe! YUM! Love it. I have added almonds when out of cashews, it’s not as creamy but still satiating and delic. Thanks for the recipe! It’s always fun to change your BPC up a bit.
I actually use a Vitamix blender Bri. I am so happy you liked my cashew coffee creamer!
Is this bulletproof Coffee replaces breakfast?
The bulletproof coffee is not necessarily a meal replacement Twiggy. Sometimes if I am not very hungry I will have it as an afternoon snack. It’s quite filling and satisfying. Enjoy it whenever you would like!
Brilliant!! This is so very creamy. I would have never believed it was possible but it does make sense seeing that cashew milk is one of the creamiest non-dairy milks I’ve had. The only downfall for me is that so far I’ve had no luck with getting the cashews to dissolve completely. I always end up with nut pulp at the end. I’m going to keep trying though because this is that good and keeps me full for hours!
I am so glad you liked my coffee too Bonnie! I agree that cashew milk is the absolute creamiest. I also love how satisfying it is, I don’t get hungry for hours after drinking it. Win-win!
Do you find that the coffee is hot enough after blending it?
Thanks for your question on my coffee creamer Sarah. I do find it hot enough after blending but I do not like my coffee super hot. If you find it isn’t quite hot enough for you, reheat it in the microwave or on the stove top whichever you prefer.
This is seriously my favorite coffee ever!! I used to always use dairy creamer in mine and I can’t tell the difference with this! Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe! I enjoy it every morning!
I am so happy you like my coffee creamer Nicole! I like it so much better than store bought. It’s so much healthier too! I am glad you enjoy it every morning. I do too!
I was out of my usual paleo creamer this morning, so decided to try your coffee recipe. I added a date & 1 tbsp cacao powder. It was quite good!
I am so glad you liked it Debbie!
Never thought of tossing raw cashews in! Such a good suggestion!!
The cashews are the secret to the creaminess of the coffee! Yum!
I am currently obsessed with this recipe! My husband and I just finished our first whole 30 and it was life changing for us. But I was getting pretty bored of just plain coffee. I found this recipe halfway through and it made me enjoy my morning coffee again! It’s creamy and delicious and there is no sugar or dairy… who knew it could be so good without the sugary creamers?!! We still haven’t bought creamer and I don’t think we will. This recipe is the perfect substitute – quick and easy and delicious. Thank you thank you for sharing!!!
Natasha – I am so glad you and your husband like this coffee! I also love that there is no sugar or dairy. You can actually feel good about drinking it. Congratulations on completing your first Whole 30! It is life changing!
Doesn’t say to pre-soak the cashews…not necessary? (I see you do that for your cashew cream.) Thanks!
If you have a high speed blender (like a vitamix or blendtec) not necessary! But if you want to play it extra safe you can soak the cashews overnight.
Very nice instruction. I love this Whole30 Bulletproof Creamy Cashew Coffee. Thank you.
Thank you Samuel! Hope you love it as much as I do!
Can you use cold brew?
Absolutely! I’ve used cold brew before and it works perfect!
