Keto Coffee Recipe … or Butter Coffee!

Keto coffee recipe - Dr. Axe

If you’re already a fan of coffee, then you’re really going to love this recipe for keto coffee, also known as “butter coffee.”

What if you’ve never had coffee before? Well, this just may be the cup that makes you a fan. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite keto recipes.

In moderation, high-quality, organic coffee can definitely have its proven coffee health benefits. This recipe takes coffee to another level, a much healthier level in my opinion.

Instead of just mainly getting a punch of eye-opening caffeine with a solid dose of antioxidants, this recipe adds in nutritional powerhouse ingredients like grass-fed butter and collagen powder made from bone broth to give you a sustainable boost of energy that doesn’t leave you falling flat a few hours later.

You may have already heard of the keto diet. Maybe you’re even following it at this very moment.

One of the central aspects of this intriguing diet, which was originally developed for epilepsy patients in the 1920s, is that it contains a very low amount of carbohydrates and a high amount of fats. In addition to possibly helping followers shed unwanted pounds, a ketogenic diet has even been shown in scientific research to help combat cancer as well as other serious chronic health issues.

Keto coffee is the perfect morning or afternoon beverage for someone following a ketogenic diet. It’s also a way of giving this ketogenic philosophy of eating a try.

Instead of loading your coffee with carbohydrate-rich milk and sugar, you add seriously beneficial fats like beef gelatin and bone broth collagen. Instead of adding some creamer, you put in some vitamin-rich butter. Rather than using a blood sugar spiking sweetener, you top your keto coffee off with a nice sprinkle of cinnamon (which satisfies a need for sweet but actually helps to keep blood sugar down).

What Is Keto Coffee?

What if I told you that butter in coffee and coconut oil in coffee are not only healthy, but actually quite tasty? It’s true!

Keto coffee gives you all of the coffee benefits plus so much more. No longer will your morning java be a jittery jolt with useless calories.

The idea with keto coffee is to give your body fuel that is rich in nutrient-dense, blood sugar-stabilizing fat. When I say “fat,” I’m talking about the following: grass-fed butter, coconut oil or MCT oil, and collagen powder made from bone broth.

Coconut oil coffee probably sounds tasty, especially if you’re a coconut fan, but you may be nervous to add things like butter, collagen and gelatin to your morning joe. Please don’t be scared.

Collagen powder and gelatin are actually very neutral in their flavor profiles. Meanwhile, grass-fed butter adds a creamy richness that makes additional dairy like milk or cream unnecessary.

Coffee with coconut oil and other healthy fats makes for a hot beverage that is highly satisfying. You not only enjoy the richness of this keto coffee, but it also keeps you full for hours. So if you’re watching your weight, it’s actually not a drink to shy away from, but rather it could be a coffee change that helps your weight loss efforts.

Are you looking for a similar coffee drink but without as much fat and that’s usually served cold? You can try so-called protein coffee.

Keto coffee step 2 - Dr. Axe

A quick glance at some of the top health benefits associated with this keto coffee recipe’s ingredients:

  • Organic coffee: Coffee is actually one of the leading contributors of disease-fighting antioxidants in the American diet. Research shows that an average cup of coffee might even contain more polyphenol antioxidants than cocoa, green tea, black tea and herbal tea!
  • Bone broth collagen: Bone broth is a rich source of collagen that is now available in powdered form. Bone broth collagen is loaded with amino acids that help to support healthy gut function, improve skin appearance from the inside out, build muscle and improve joint health, among other benefits. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, and it’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. As we age, our body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down, which is why I am a big believer in a supplement like collagen-rich protein powder, powered by bone broth.
  • Beef gelatin: Similar to collagen, gelatin is beneficial for preventing intestinal damage and improving the lining of the digestive tract, thereby preventing permeability and leaky gut syndrome. Similar to high-protein foods, studies have found that taking gelatin supplements helps increase satiety and control hunger hormones.
  • Grass-fed butter: Grass-fed butter contains high levels of conjugated linoleic acid, a compound that potentially may help provide protection against different types of cancer and helps the body store muscle instead of fat.
  • Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is high in medium-chain fatty acids like caprylic acid, lauric acid and capric acid that provide an excellent source of energy. Animal studies have also revealed that coconut oil can improve antioxidant levels and reduce stress on the liver.
  • MCT Oil: MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that has numerous health benefits, ranging from improved cognitive function to better weight management. Coconut oil is a great source of MCTs — roughly 62 percent to 65 percent of the fatty acids in coconut oil are MCTs. More concentrated “MCT oils” have also been growing in popularity so this recipe gives you the option of using coconut oil or MCT oil.
  • Cinnamon: This is one of the healthiest spices on Earth that has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, antimicrobial, immunity-boosting and heart-protective abilities.

How to Make Keto Coffee

Making keto coffee is extremely easy. There are only a couple of steps.

Keto coffee step 4 - Dr. Axe

Put all ingredients into a high-powered blender, and blend until well-combined. If you don’t have all the ingredients on hand, then you may choose to only go with grass-fed butter and/or coconut oil, for example, with the black coffee, but the combo of all the ingredients raises the health quotient for this coffee.

Keto coffee step 5 - Dr. Axe

Pour into your favorite coffee mug.

Keto coffee step 6 - Dr. Axe

Sprinkle on a little cinnamon, and prepare to enjoy your first keto coffee! If you need a little extra flavor or sweetness, you can add a dash of pure vanilla extract without increasing the carb content of the recipe drastically.

  1. James Killman on

    BTW: in addition to my previous comment, I should point out that I followed a low-to-no card lifestyle (I do not say “diet” because that sounds temporary and faddish), and I lost over 35 pounds in 8 or 10 months. All of this while carefully monitoring my diabetes BG levels and using almost no insulin. Previously I had been taking 14 units of novolog before each meal. I use only Tresiba at bedtime to regulate BG levels.

    I keep in close contact with my regular doctor and my cardiologist since I am a heart transplant recipient of 20 years. My panels are very good.

    Finally, I do “cheat” occasionally. I intentionally and knowingly eat bread or oven dessert once in a while because I like both. This is the way I live, not a fad diet that I will not stick with. (Bread is my biggest weakness!) With moderate exercise, I feel better than I have for several years, and I am two sizes down in my trousers.

  2. James Killman on

    This is one of the few sites and/or books that simply gives facts and information without trying to peddle something. The topic was discussed in a clear and yet clinical manner, without the overuse of adjectives or the enthusiasm of a zealot, that helps the reader decide whether of not to follow such a life style.


  3. Jade Anthony on

    Dr. Axe,
    I have an allergy to an acid found in fruit and salad items. It needs to be boiled out for me to eat them but still, things like apples will kill me. This includes avocados.
    What’s your suggestions for alternatives. I have been living off meat, cheese and potatoes and its been fine. But I’m now in my 30s and getting the spread.
    ANY advice?

  4. amy gerber on

    So is it better to do a keto coffee or a smoothie in the morning? Or skip breakfast ( for the 16:8 intermittent fasting) A little confused which option is best for optimal long term health

  5. Myrna Alexander on

    I take your vanilla- flavored multicollagen daily . I JUST LOVE IT!! I add to cold glass chocolate almond milk, with immune booster powder probiotic and muscle restore powder! Delicious!!

  6. Amy on

    My 11 yr. old daughter wants to know if she can drink keto coffee. Is there a recommended age to drink coffee or dose for those under 18?

  7. Crystal Pinske on

    Hi Dr. Axe,
    I love your advice on health and nutition. It’s been my mission to alter my family genetic disease patterns by adopting a personal wellness program. I trust your expert advice and just now stumbled your recipes using raw garlic. I thought I’d better sign up. I don’t want to miss any of your other suggestions. Thanks again.

  8. Ashley Mushaluk on

    Is it still beneficial to make a large batch and freeze for convenience? I would like to blend the butter, coconut oil, collagen powder with some coffee then portion it out to freeze and add to a morning coffee on the go. Or does the premixing and freezing process reduce the benefits?

  9. Eddie on

    Hi Dr Axe

    I just bought the Keto 360 plan and got the extra Daily Keto performance kit ph keto Multi I don’t see anywhere on how or when to use these item can you help me out . Also, What if I don’t like coffee, ? what then ? according to the diet you have coffee360 listed every day I can’t stand coffee. Can I just make a smoothie rather then having a coffee. Please help me out I want to do this right

  10. Mallory Jacks on

    I highly recommend any mothers who are expecting consider whether they want to be doing keto / coffee leading up to the conception. I know during pregnancy most mothers realize caffeine can be detrimental, but even beforehand I have found that this can be the case (I’m a doula in Austin: ). It’s just from experience, but it makes the process of getting morning sickness etc a little worse.

  11. Cynthia on

    Hi Dr. Axe,
    Just getting started on the Keto diet for my husband and I. Don’t understand the chart. 75% fat, I know what protein is but the 75% fat is throwing me off. The fat you show is butter, oil, avocados etc. How am I to get 75% fat from those? Making dinner if I make spinach, hamburger what else do I make? Where’s the 75% fat?

    • Pam on

      Cook with butter, add butter to your spinach, add a dollop of butter to the top of your burger. There are lots of ways to add more fat to your way of eating. Just have to think about it. :)

  12. Darlene Mobley on

    Does the Bulletproof Coffee product have butter already in it? I drink it everyday and don’t want to add extra butter if it’s already in the coffee

  13. Micky McGraw Steien on

    I have seen a different recipe that has very dark cocoa powder in it, is there no benefit to this additional?

  14. Neil Stevens on

    I would also like to ask about the difference between using the heavy whipping cream and the butter being thats what butter is made out of…. I’d also ask what the difference between grass fed butter and regular butter is from a nutrition or calorie standpoint?

  15. Sharon J on

    Hi Dr. Axe,
    I was given the ‘butter coffee’ recipe several months ago and love it, however, the recipe I was given was:
    2 Cups coffee
    2T Heavy Whipping Cream
    2T Kerrygold butter (grassfed butter)
    1T MCT Oil
    1T Cacoa
    I’ve experimented with adding Tumeric (but the color is gross) and sprinkling cinnamon..

    1. Why organic coffee vs. Caribou Coffee? Is the difference significant?
    2. Is it bad to add the HWC?

  16. Mansal Denton on

    I love this recipe! I just tried it myself two days ago and was pretty surprised by the taste. I’ve been drinking butter coffee and tea for some time, but only recently have I started branching out and trying out some other recipes and ingredients.

    One of the best additions I have had is simple: egg yolk. The egg yolk is full of healthy fats, it adds some frothiness to the beverage (which I like). More importantly it is full of choline, which is important for brain health (like memory formation and learning). Because of the added choline I add a brain supplement called aniracetam ( )because that is fat soluble and works synergistically with choline to improve memory. Luckily, it does not have much of a taste so I don’t have to worry about it ruining the flavor of my drink.

    I hope the added tips are helpful. At least the egg yolk is an easy one to start :)

  17. Sigrid on

    Yes! I second the “Listen to your body”!!!
    I have an allergy to glutamine (thanks to genetics!) and can’t even drink bone broth (and don’t get me started on what gelatin does to me! Oy!).

  18. Sigrid on

    Yes! I second the “Listen to your body”!!!
    I have an allergy to glutamine (thanks to genetics!) and can’t even drink bone broth (and don’t get me started on what gelatin does to me! Oy!).

  19. Jodie on

    I would love to try this recipe but as of September 2017 I’ve been dairy free, my new functional doctor did food allergy testing & said dairy needs to go for life. Can I just omit the grass fed butter & the drink still have the same benefits? Or can I substitute something in place if the butter?

    • Sigrid on

      Butter has butyric acid, which is really good for treating leaky gut. I take it as a substitute for L-glutamine (I cannot take L-glutamine for various reasons)

      Dr Axe did a post on butyric acid:

    • Sandi on

      Dr. Axe’s bone broth protein and his collagen have no taste… or, at least not enough to alter the taste of coffee. I hope that helps.

    • Sandi on

      Have you tried ghee? Most people who can’t do dairy CAN do ghee. But if you can’t do ghee, then coconut butter or raw cacao butter will work. Our brain is mostly fat. Our bodies work more efficiently when we are eating lots of healthy fats (and lower carb). I hope that helps.

    • Sigrid on

      Coconut butter isn’t anything like dairy butter. If you used coconut butter in your coffee, it would just be grainy and weird. Just use the coconut oil. It’s the same thing, only without the fiber the coconut “butter” has.
      Folks who don’t tolerate cow’s milk often do just fine with ghee. This is because the milk solids have been removed to make ghee and it’s almost always what’s in the milk solids that cause the problems for people.

  21. Leslie Collins on

    I used chicory coffee as it is not acidic. I also added a cinnamon butter bomb! I did not use gelatin as I didn’t have it. This is so yum! My go to!!!!!

    • Sandi on

      IMHO, if the organic, grass-fed whipping cream has no sweetener, then they are the same. If you keep whipping the cream, it will turn into butter. The only downside will be if there is sweetener. Are you blending the whipped cream into the coffee or just putting it on top? You could do both.

  22. Sheri on

    Is this supposed be a meal replacement? I have read that it should keep me satiated for hours yet when I made it yesterday morning within 2 hours I was hungry. It was absolutely delicious but am not looking to gain extra calories

  23. Austin on

    Hey I’m doing the ketogenic plan and was wondering is it ok to use a scoop of organic coco powder and a packet of SweetLeaf stevia in with this?

  24. deb on

    I also like to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and cardamom to the coffee mix before blending. then sprinkle with cinnamon. This has replaced my old coffee and it is even better than getting coffee out somewhere. Thanks Dr Axe!

  25. Kim on

    Uncle! I’m so confused. I see bone broth collagen powder but when I go to buy it says bone broth protein or it only says collegen without bone in it. Help. :-)

  26. Deana on

    I commented about being on the leaky gut diet on April 27th wanting to know if this was something that I could have. Still waiting…..

  27. Bonnie on

    I make my version of Bullet Proof coffee with the added ingredient of Now Liquid Lecithin, an emulsifier which helps the fat and water to mix, and as i understand it, helps the cholesterol work right in our bodies. I choose not to use soy; i use Sunflower Lecithin. I first pour the coffee, then stir the cup vigorously while i dribble ~ a teaspoon of the lecithin in. it helps to warm the lecithin first. You could also use powdered or granules of lecithin.
    Next i add the coconut oil and butter. Next i whip the cupful of liquids with a wire whip i place between my palms and rub like i am trying to start a fire with a stick.
    You want to drink this before it gets cold. Cold lecithin is yucky! .

  28. Deana on

    I am on the leaky gut diet & it says I can not have coffee. I miss my coffee so much, but have been faithful to not splurge. I got really excited when I saw this recipe. Can I have this on the leaky gut diet?

  29. MNK on

    For women that suffer from estrogen dominance (I’ve been diagnosed with adenomyosis), I’d like to know if I should substitute the coffee with matcha green tea powder? Read that matcha contains less caffeine. Feedback would be greatly appreciated. And I have tried regular coffee with mct oil as well as ghee.
    Note: I quit the mct/ghee and have been taking fermented cod liver oil w/ butter oil and grass-fed dessicated liver capsules.

      Hi Sharon, I recommend you consult your healthcare provider, but you can read the general diet I recommend for atrial fibrillation here:

  30. Reba swann on

    I will make this soon, have all ingredients except I need to use up my whole container of Ancient Nutrition bone Broth Protein greens. Not sure what that may taste like and what brand of gelatin should I use and where to find it.

    • Ruth on

      I was recommended to use Great Lakes brand gelatin. I usually buy the porcine one since it is colorless – better to use for a variety of cooking as it doesn’t color foods brown. I think they also have beef though. I am curious what Dr. Axe would think of the porcine gelatin since the recipe specifies beef. I get it at a local health food store, but just checked on Vitacost and they have it there, too. Probably Amazon, etc.

      • Dr. Josh Axe on

        Hi Ruth, I typically recommend beef. I don’t use porcine gelatin because it’s made from pork products, which I avoid. You can read why here: I hope this helps!


    We, at Okanagan Rawsome have been fans of our Super (delicious) green Coffee for the past year. freshly brewed organic coffee, freshly made almond milk or organic raw whole milk ( from our neighbours) raw cacao nibs, spinach, kale or cilantro, tumeric, maca, cayenne, and a scoop of coconut oil or butter. At your suggestion we’ve recently added collagen powder. Blend until frothy and than go for a 10 km nordic ski! Don’t worry too much about exact measurements. You will know when you’ve overdone it on the greens or the cayenne!

  32. Laurene on

    Could substituting the coffee with Teecino “herbal coffee” be equally beneficial? Teecino is very coffee-tasting without bitterness, is caffeine-free, and non-acidic. It’s perfect substitute for that something warm in your mug in the AM :) Just curious. Thanks.

  33. Judy Usavage on

    I have been on the high fat keto diet for six weeks now. I have only lost seven pounds but I do feel full and haven’t wanted to snack on chips or carbs.. I have been very rigorous about not eating any sugar and had already been off gluten for several years. However, my heart is continually going into afib, running faster and irregular more than ever. I wonder if you have any information about this. I read that I need to watch my electrolytes, so I drink plenty of water and take several supplements. If I don’t get any info, i will have to go off this way of eating. Thanks.

    • Shirley Johnson on

      Watch Dr. Richard Becker on TLN at 10 am cst. He will help you understand. Afib usually means one needs magnesium.

  34. Deborah Meeker on

    I have been putting the bone brith collagen in my coffee as I find that it tastes best mixed in coffee. I also just started adding coconut oil and the butter. Due to kidney disease, I am limited in my protein and with diverticulitis, I am limited in my cruciferous veggies, etc. Any recommendations??

    • Dr. Josh Axe on

      Deborah, here are two articles I think you may find helpful:

      Diverticulitis diet:
      Kidney cleanse:

      I hope these help! Blessings.

  35. Melissa on

    Kellyjo, yes, this is instead of “regular” breakfast usually. Some people say it isn’t a great thing to do since it doesn’t involve chewing and that may lead to feeling deprived, somehow. I do love to eat, but I find that I enjoy this kind of coffee and I don’t feel deprived at all. It is so easy and tastes good, too. It is a relief not to have to find breakfast foods every day.

  36. Kellyjo Spink on

    I love drinking this coffee in the morning. It gives me lots of energy and alertness
    Just a quick question though. Is this in place of breakfast? A meal replacement?

    • Ruth on

      This has been my entire breakfast, daily, for over a year. At one point I felt like I needed a little more, so I tried eating a hard boiled egg too. That didn’t really help, so I tried adding extra butter and coconut oil to the beverage and that did the trick – no egg or anything else needed. When I read this today, I ordered some of Dr. Axe’s bone broth collagen, though. I’m excited to try adding this in as I think it will up the nutrients and satiation as well. Maybe I’ll be able to cut back on the butter and oil a bit.

    • Stela Georgieva on

      I buy it from Amway. It is delicious. If you can’t, then I guess in any organic store you could get one. As we lack such where I live, Amway is where I get it.

  37. Joe on

    Since butter is made from heavy cream, could one substitute heavy cream in place of butter for equivalent nutritional benefits?

    • Ruth on

      I have no idea about the nutritional benefits, but I feel like the butter makes it seem a lot like you did use cream. Try it, you’ll like it. :)

    • Nikko on

      I would recommend using Organic Valley cream, as it is made from pastured cows. It doesn’t taste as rich to me and I don’t know if it has the same level of nutrients as KG butter but it is a great alternative and easier to make.

    • Robin on

      Heavy cream hardly has any carbs. My Land O Lakes Heavy Whipping Cream has 0 carbs, 0 sugar. I use it in place of milk for most everything.

    • Ruth on

      I really like this made with matcha green tea in the morning. It took me a few months to grow to like it as much as my morning coffee, but now I look forward to it each morning. I think there are lots of nutrient benefits to matcha green tea, but not the same ones as with the coffee. I guess it depends on what you’re going for. I did make buttered tea a couple times with an herbal tea in the afternoon when I wanted to eat everything in sight. The fat in it totally worked to stop my cravings, but it just doesn’t taste that great with herbal tea. I would only do that when I’m desperate.

    • Shannon on

      I’ve made this with any kind of tea for 2 years and still LOVE it! Costco sells Kerrygold butter which is from Ireland and made from grass fed cows. Trader Joe’s sells it too. I add 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and turmeric and stevia and its Devine :)

      • Sylvia Reynolds-Blakely on

        Thanks for the tip on where to get grass fed butter. I was about to pay a fortune at the health food store I’m sure.

    • KW on

      Roasted chicory and rosted dandelion teas are often used as tasty and healthy coffee substitutes. Research dandelion root- it is a super food with many benefits and no caffeine.

    • Monica C on

      I really like the hazelnut flavor of Teccino coffee substitute. Made from carob, chicory, figs, and dates. I’ve been drinking it for about a month and I really like it. I’m definitely going to try it with the coconut oil and ghee (Carrington Farms Organic).
      Check out I bought 3 bags of Hazelnut flavor on Amazon for a very fair price. Cheaper than the website.

  38. Ruth on

    I started drinking coffee blended with butter and coconut oil for breakfast over a year ago. I loved it. Then about six months ago, I decided I wanted to go even healthier and started making it with match green tea instead of the coffee. I have a slightly sluggish thyroid and thought maybe less caffeine would be beneficial with that. My question is, what type of blender do people use for this? I have gone thru two Nutribullets and recently bought a Ninja blender. In reading the directions for the Ninja, it says in several places not to use hot liquids. In hindsight, I think that is probably why I went thru two Nutribullets in less than a year. Now I am using an immersion blender, but it doesn’t make it very frothy, plus it is messier. Any suggestions? For me, one of the joys of my morning beverage is the hotter the better, so I don’t want to let it cool before blending. Thanks.

    • Stephanie on

      I use my vitamix. I tried using my magic bullet but it’s been leaking with hot coffee and sprays all over the place. My vitamix was made for hot liquids so I just use that even though it’s much larger than the magic bullet.

    • Missy on

      I use an Oster blender. I have used the long arm on my Kitchen Aid hand mixer (works well) and an immersion blender (slightly messier). I believe a portable frother is a good option, as well. I hope this helps.

    • Kathy on

      I use my Ninja with hot liquids all the time and haven’t had any trouble yet. I make the butter coffee in the Nutri Ninja almost every day, and I make hot sauces and soups in the big blender.

    • Theresa on

      I use a 3-4 cup frothing pitcher and preheat it along with my ceramic pour-over…preheat everything. Then i have a Bamix immersion blender…works so much better than ordinary immersion blenders. My coffee, butter and and MCT oil are all in the pitcher and the im-blender blends it all so beautifully with a sooth foamy top. Just delicious!

    • Tammy on

      I use an immmersion blender in a 4-cup glass measuring cup and get plenty of froth and it’s enough room to not make a mess.

    • Mack on

      The article neglects to tell you to heat up your blender jar and coffee cup with very hot water to keep the beverage very hot.

      You cannot use a Nutribullet because there is no way for the hot steam to escape and you will have a mess. I have a Black and Decker high speed blender that works fantastic. I chose this blender for it’s powerful wattage, compared to the others that were available at the time in a similar price range. It also has a glass jar and is dishwasher safe. Any blender should do if it okay to use hot liquids in it.

      I use grass fed butter, (1 tbsp), Dr. Axe Collagen Bone Broth (tasteless) 1 scoop, is about 2 tbsp, 1 to 2 tsp of organic coconut oil, 1/4 tsp of organic ceylon cinnamon, and sometimes but rarely, 1 tbsp cacao powder for a mocha flavor. Pour the hot water out of the heated blender jar, add hot coffee (8 oz for me) and all other ingredients and blend on high for about 15 seconds. Pour hot water out of large coffee mug, and pour in Keto coffee from blender. That should keep your coffee hot, creamy and flavorful. I love it!

    • Jennifer on

      I use an immersion blender. I used to use my vitamix, but it was too much hassle and clean up. The immersion blender works great and is easier to clean up. It comes out nice and creamy. In fact, sometimes in the vitamix the oils didn’t quite blend all the way. I haven’t had that problem since switching to immersion.

      I use a Ninja every morning to make my coffee. I think the key is to make sure the lid is on tight and once done blending I let it sit. I do not take the lid off right away. I hope this is helpful!

      Try using a lid (from a tumbler) that has a hole in it for the straw. If you have a hand mixer or an immersion blender that has a detachable beater, slide the rod of the blender through the lid, then just hold down the lid while you “blend.” It doesn’t matter if the lid doesn’t “fit” the container you are using as long as it fully covers it. Just hold it down to contain the spray and be sure you are using a tall enough container so that the level of the liquid is not to close to the top edge to be swirled over it by the centrifugal force of the beater pushing it around and up the sides.

    Various blood test has shown high levels of inflammation. I have been lactose intolerant, have muscle pains and constipation, also gluten intolerance.
    I have changed my diet to Paleo and have been drinking tumeric mixed with ginger tea, but I have been told that I need to be on a vegan diet to have my body properly cleansed. Is this necessary?

      Hi Dorma, I personally do not believe that’s necessary. Here is a list of some of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods I think you may find helpful:

      I would highly recommend you check out Dr Axe’s new book. I have the exact same symptoms and have been finding great relief after adding collagen and large amounts of pro and pre biotics to my diet.
      Also, Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Natasha McBride is another great book to help understand why we develop these gluten and lactose intolerance’s.
      Hope this helps =)

      Dorma, u are lactose intolerant cuz im sure u are not taking raw milk, raw butter, etc. If u take them pasteurized, the digestive enzymes that come naturally with milk, are killed so thats why people cannot tolerate milk, cuz the enzymes that God created are not there to digest it.
