Metabolism Boosting Coconut Oil Coffee

This may not surprise you, but I put coconut oil in my coffee. It’s delicious! But I don’t do it just for it’s yummy-ness. Coconut oil gives me Super-Mama Powers! For realz. Coconut oil gives me a boost in energy and helps me to fight all the super germs I come in contact everyday when taking care of my Coconut Babies.

3 Reasons To Add Coconut Oil To Your Coffee


1. Coconut Oil Increases Your Energy

As I mentioned above, coconut oil gives you energy! How does this work? Well, coconut oil is made up of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides). MCTs are more rapidly absorbed by the body and are quickly metabolized as fuel (not stored as fat).

2. Coconut Oil Speeds Up The Metabolism 

When you eat MTCs (like in coconut oil) this results in accelerated metabolic conversion! That is, instead of being stored as fat, the calories contained in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use by the body.

According to this study, researchers assembled 40 female volunteers between the ages of 20 and 40 who suffered from abdominal obesity. Over a 12-week period, the women were given a daily dietary supplement comprising of 30 milliliters of either soybean oil or coconut oil. At the end of the 12-week study, the researchers found that the women who were given the coconut oil experienced a significant reduction in both BMI and waist circumference, as well as an increase in “good” HDL cholesterol. These results were not found in the group that was given soybean oil. “It appears that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity,”.

3. Coconut Oil Boosts The Immune System

Almost 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil is Lauric Acid (aka the super healthy fats found in human breast milk). Lauric acid is potent in antimicrobial properties. According to WebMD lauric acid is used for treating, “viral infections including influenza (the flu); swine flu; avian flu; the common cold; fever blisters, cold sores, and genital herpes caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV); genital warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV); and HIV/AIDS. It is also used for preventing the transmission of HIV from mothers to children.”

Now that you know how amazing coconut oil is for your health let me show you how to make it taste fabulous in your coffee! Coconut oil coffee is amazingly delicious!

    Tnx so much for the coconut bread recipe, Just tried it out this night and it came out very yummylisitic. God bless you

  • Susanne Kubassek April 24, 2017, 9:08 am

    Love coconut oil for everything 👍😊

  • EW April 18, 2017, 12:47 pm

    Something to keep in mind w/ the coconut oil coffee, you cannot pour your coffee into a styrofoam cup, or even a “hot/cold” cup w/ a plastic/polystyrene/plastic top, like you find @ all the major retailers & especially wholesale clubs like BJ’s & Costco. The Dixie hot/cold cups w/ the white tops are especially susceptible…the dark ones not so much. The coconut oil will dissolve any of these plastic containers. Verified well-known science, feel free to research. Virgin unrefined organic coconut oil is especially brutal on these plastic containers. Even raised the alarm to the Dixie/Georgia Pacific folks before I knew it was established fact & they asked me to send in a sample! No thanks, no cataloging of my DNA, thank you very much.

  • Danielle April 12, 2017, 1:48 pm

    I really like your ideas and recipes. The sunscreen is great for my waterbaby.

  • Sal March 18, 2017, 4:59 am

    Hi, I’ve been an advocate on the benefits of coconut oil, is there a brand you recommend? I also have gotten into biohacking, do you recommend Dave asprey’s brand as far as coffee, octane and unsalted butter?

  • Pam March 10, 2017, 3:31 pm

    Hi Tiffany. Right now I use Half and half in my coffee. I am interested in using coconut oil for its healthy benefits. I’m wondering if I could just add coconut oil to my coffee and not the half and half. Or, should I add both? I have a hand blender but I’m afraid I would spray hot coffee all over the place. Yikes.

  • Mindy Rowell February 11, 2017, 8:28 am

    Does it still work the same in decaffeinated coffee?

  • Judith Maria Yoda February 11, 2017, 4:55 am

    The coffee recipe is good!
    Makes coffee tastier.

  • Erika January 21, 2017, 5:01 pm

    Hi Tiffany. I did drink my coffee with coconut oil for about 2-3 weeks but I had to give it up. My through feels very irritated when I had my coffee with the coconut oil. Wondering if anyone else sad same issues ?

    • Andrea Mabee May 8, 2017, 12:55 pm

      Yes! This happens to me too and I was wondering if I was the only one. My throat feels sort of dry and scratchy when I add coconut oil to my coffee or tea. Which is the opposite of what you would expect. Does anyone know why this happens?

  • Felicity December 15, 2016, 4:13 am

    Hey there, I just add a scoop of coconut oil to my coffee, add a couple of shakes of cinnamon, and milk (I know, not so great, but almond or coconut milk could work, too) and stir!!! Yum!!! Oh, and I use organic cirgin c.o. 🙂

  • Emt Parks October 30, 2016, 11:20 am

    Do you have a favorite brand of rapadura ? I can’t find it at Trader Joe’s. Can’t wait to try the pie crust. Thanks for your hard work.

  • Fernanda September 12, 2016, 6:11 pm

    Hi Tiffany! Should I be adding the refined or unrefined coconut oil to my coffee? Thanks

    • The Coconut Mama September 12, 2016, 6:12 pm

      Unrefined is best, but both are good. 🙂

  • Shruti September 11, 2016, 7:24 pm

  • Devon May 26, 2016, 2:38 pm

    Add Cardamom to this recipe you will be blown away!

    Maybe even some Fresh Hash…

  • Brian Hanson May 23, 2016, 2:43 pm

    I drink five cups of coffee a day and I just started using coconut oil in some of them — I love it. I’m glad I ran across your idea.

  • Shirley Standridge May 23, 2016, 8:28 am

    first I have heard of fixing coffee using this recipe. I am definitely going to give it a try! Sound delicious!

  • Shirley Standridge May 23, 2016, 8:25 am

    I have never digested coconut oil before but I am trying the new ketogenic diet and it suggests using coconut oil and also adding it to your coffee with butter. The recipe for the coconut oil/butter coffee sound delicious. I’ve never made it before and the recipe doesn’t make it very clear…it just says to put the ingredients in a blender…blend & enjoy. I am thinking they meant using fresh, hot black coffee to create this beverage. Is my thinking correct?

  • Tonya Clifton March 20, 2016, 12:54 pm

    Hi, I’m new with adding coconut oil to my diet.Do you use the organic refined or unrefined in your coffee?The coconut flavor is realy strong to me, but I do want the most benefit it offers.

  • Melanie March 11, 2016, 9:27 am

    Oh my gosh! I used to drink coffee with butter and or coconut mixed in with a spoon and some sucanat but blending coffee with coconut oil, gelatin, a smidge of cocoa powder and sucanat. Whoa!! Creamy goodness. Even my man loved it. He said he’d drink it every day and he’s usually a coffee once in a while guy.

  • Lavinia March 10, 2016, 4:42 pm

    I love coffee and coconut, I read all the great things about coconut oil, and going on and on telling my husband. So surprise I just received my first very large jar of coconut oil ( he loves me).?

  • Lavinia March 10, 2016, 4:35 pm

    I love coffee and coconut, I read all the great things about coconut oil, and going on and on telling my husband he also knows my health is not good and getting worse. I have ARDS which gets me exhausted very quickly which kicks up my anxiety so I’m always on timeout ( says my daughter)! So surprise I just received my first very large jar of coconut oil ( he loves me). So your coffee recipe caught my eye and I’ll get back to you in a couple of months weeks , soon.?

  • Reena February 23, 2016, 11:46 pm

    Just wondering if you use a teaspoon, or a tablespoon – at the top of your post you say 1 Tbsp, but in your recipe it’s a teaspoon of coconut oil….thank you 🙂

    • The Coconut Mama February 25, 2016, 9:49 am

      It’s a teaspoon. 🙂

      Thanks for pointing that out. I just fixed it.

  • Mike February 18, 2016, 1:45 pm

    Can I simply add the coconut oil to hot coffee? Will it mix OK by stirring?

    • Lynn September 19, 2016, 12:39 pm

      Late reply, but, yes, I add coconut oil (plus, in my case, a pat of Irish butter and a pinch of sea salt) to my hot cup of coffee and stir. It works fine.

  • Zulakah kalliff February 10, 2016, 10:23 am

    I make my own coconut oil add to my coffee is it good for my health

  • Linda February 9, 2016, 5:49 pm

    Hi Coconut Lover,
    I’ve loved coconut oil from long ago. My dilemma is that I can’t take it because of the smell. I gag, occasionally vomit. I think I overdosed when I first found out about it. I really want to get back to consuming it. Do you have any ways to overcome the gag? I even try holding my nose! Lol!

    • Maria February 23, 2016, 10:30 am

      Linda, have you tried refined coconut oil? it’s deodorized and doesn’t have the coconut-flavor, but still has MCT’s. I think the anti-oxidant properties are decreased, though.

  • Jean February 9, 2016, 8:12 am

    I love this! Just tried it with fresh brewed organic coffee, coconut oil, gelatin, cinnamon in the blender! I did not add sweetener and it passed the sweet tooth husband test! He loved it too! Thank you for your lovely site!

  • Jean February 9, 2016, 7:50 am

    I just made this and it is wonderful. I did not add cream because I wanted to save the warmth. I did not add sweetener because I wanted to see if it would pass my husbands sweet tooth test! He loves it! I added cinnamon, gelatin, and coconut oil to the organic coffee in the blender! Thank you for this healthy treat idea!

  • barb February 7, 2016, 6:45 pm

    I did this for awhile but it kept me up late couldn’t go to sleep very good I only did it in the morning too but ill try it again

  • . February 4, 2016, 8:11 am

    What if I just add coconut oil to coffee with cream and stevia without the blender and gelatin? Would it be just as healthy?

  • shareet January 26, 2016, 8:58 am

    Can you get the same effect by putting the coconut oil in your regular coffee , no honey, sugar…etc, just black coffee with the oil and a bit of creamer??

  • Inez January 23, 2016, 6:33 pm


  • Janice Pope January 16, 2016, 1:45 pm

    I would put my coconut oil in my cup with my Italian Sweet Cream then just pour the hot coffee in. It was delicious. But, when my heart doctor looked at my colestral numbers, everything was out of wac compared to what it was before so, he told me to lay off the coconut oil because it was high calorie as well as the type of oil it was and that I would probably loose weight and my counts should go back down. I have to wait another 3 months before I can get retested and my weight hasn’t been going up like it was before. I also use less creamer and sometimes just drink my coffee black. sorry but, that was my doctor’s advice

  • brooke January 14, 2016, 1:00 pm

    Just curious- why the blender?

    • Patricia September 22, 2016, 5:23 am

      To froth the coffee like a latte

  • Debbie January 9, 2016, 4:43 pm

    I am not a coffee drinker but i drink alot of green tea, would this work in tea also?

  • Brenda January 5, 2016, 7:49 pm

    Love all the great info on coconut oil, am definitely going to try it with coffee in the morning.

  • Becca December 7, 2015, 8:22 am

    I add organic coconut milk to my coffee every morning, would this have similar benefits?

  • Jacqueline December 5, 2015, 7:32 am

    Just found your site by Googling “coconut oil in coffee”. I’m sitting here with a coconut/almond milk latte with coconut oil for the first time ever. It’s seriously delicious! I’m on a very strict errrr…..overwhelming Candida diet and coconut is a fantastic natural antifungal as well. Can’t wait to check out more of your site for ways to use coconut. Thanks so much for your help!

  • Tina November 22, 2015, 9:19 pm

    I read the article where you put gelatin in coffee. What is the benefit of doing that?

  • Gladys November 17, 2015, 6:59 am

    Hi because of this I went for the hunt but they where different types of coconut oil, which one have the most benefits? Virgin coconut oil, extra virgin coconut oil, or the regular

  • Aminu Muhammad October 26, 2015, 9:52 am

    Hi Tifany, thank you very much for educating us. Does the coconut oil help Diabetic patients in any way? Thank you.

  • Whitney October 24, 2015, 6:26 am

    We use an immersion blender to do this. Less mess, fewer containers and clean up and perfect coffee!

  • Andy October 23, 2015, 10:41 am

    I was wondering if these benefits work for men as well… Thanks.

  • Sarah H. October 17, 2015, 6:09 pm

  • Lauren October 13, 2015, 10:08 pm

    Just wanted to mention that gelatin is made from a variety of animal by products mainly horses hooves. It’s the gummy quality in skittles, starburst, ect. I found out when I was a little girl and have made my best effort not not eat it since

  • mbw October 11, 2015, 5:57 pm

    Bullet-proof coffee, YES! Organic dark roast coffee, 1 TBSP coconut oil + 1 TBSP organic cream. I do it every day

  • Cyndi October 2, 2015, 10:10 pm

    what about high cholesterol? I love coconut oil in my eggs, my coffee and I cook with the refined for meats so theirs no flavor. I consume a lot. Should I be worried about high cholesterol? I told my friend about the coffee and she brought up the cholesterol concern. Thought I’d check.

  • Don September 15, 2015, 8:11 am

    Hi Tiffiany. I ran across your very informative blog when I googled “can I add coconut oil to coffee.” I just recently discovered the many health benefits to coconut oil after watching the show “Know the Cause.” Have you ever watched it? Thanks fo posting. God bless.

  • Tanya September 3, 2015, 3:50 am

    Hi, just wondering about the effect coconut oil has on your metabolism, i see that you have stated it boots your metabolism. I suffer from a fast metabolism already, would it be safe to try this still – due to the other health benefits i would like to give it a go. Thank You

  • Migle September 1, 2015, 9:28 am

    does butter give you the same benefit as coconut oil? I use butter in my coffee! It’s delicious!

    going to try the coconut oil .

    can’t wait for more info.


  • MNM May 15, 2015, 10:50 am

    Would it have the same benefits for men?

  • Dorsey May 15, 2015, 6:42 am

    Another addition: Adding grass fed unsalted butter with the coconut oil is awesome. Gives you even more power and it turns the whipped coffee to the color you get when you add cream. I also use my hand blender for whipping and do it in a 4 cup measuring cup which I can just stick into the dishwasher. I have been drinking this mix for a few years now and I agree whole heartedly about the energy you get and the most amazing thing for me is that I don’t get that 10:30 droop. In fact, even if lunch is late, I am not in a bad place. 🙂
    I do flavor additions at times…. depending on my mood. Right now I am adding some of the Chai Tea that I keep in the fridge so I have Chai coffee. Yum! LOL

  • Nutri Xtra life May 10, 2015, 9:00 am

    Just change 30 millimeters (measurement of length – a little more than an inch) to 30 milliliters or mL (measurement of volume – should be about what’s on that teaspoon), and I will try it.

  • Susan May 6, 2015, 5:09 am

    Added honey to the coconut oil and coffee, really enjoyed it. When you shake hot coffee and coconut oil together, do it over the sink as it flows out.

  • Monica May 6, 2015, 4:27 am

    I’ve tried it with organic, grass fed unsalted butter along with coconut oil. Really good. I swear, I wasn’t hungry for hours.

    I use coconut oil in my hot tea every day. I haven’t lost weight…any suggestions? I also put a few tbsp. on my dog’s food twice a day. It has helped with her allergies. She had a hotspot on her back the other day and I rubbed some coconut oil on it and within a few hours it wasn’t red and itchy anymore. The next day it was gone!!

  • Petko April 22, 2015, 2:19 am

    Hello again. Allow me to express my excitement and satisfaction of my first experiment with coffee with coconut oil.

    As an old fashionable European I drink only double ristretto, double espresso and occasionally double macchiato. And I was very impressed of my two doses of double espresso this morning poured over tea spoon of coconut oil. Both done with different labels Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to see the difference. Thanks to you Tiffany, I found another way to increase my daily intake of coconut oil.

    And also thank you very much for the above links to gelatine resources. It is a long time now I was thinking to include it in my daily intake too, and you remind me of this “procrastination”. Thanks for all tips and sharing your knowledge and skills.

  • charlene April 21, 2015, 7:46 pm

    Can i do this with iced coffee? I dont drink hot. Thanks

    • The Coconut Mama April 22, 2015, 1:56 pm

      Yep! You may need to melt the coconut oil first before blending to make sure it doesn’t clump up in your coffee. 🙂

  • Becky April 21, 2015, 6:47 pm

    i also add my protein powder to this in the am. It makes as a delicious shake and doesn’t spike insulin like fruit would and doesn’t require sugar. Keeps me full and taste like dessert.

  • Dalia April 21, 2015, 2:28 pm

    Which gelatin (not the brand) do you put in your coconut oil coffee –

    • The Coconut Mama April 22, 2015, 1:58 pm

      The green canister. It’s Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate. 🙂

  • Petko April 21, 2015, 12:30 pm

    Interesting drink. I should give it a try. Thank you for sharing. Personally I’m a big fan of every coconut product and this is why I find your blog very good and useful. However, having a coffee benchmarked to Starbucks doesn’t show a good taste. Raise your standards 🙂

  • Tanya April 21, 2015, 7:24 am

    Why do you add gelatin? Does that have a benefit as well…

  • Terri Brown April 21, 2015, 7:01 am

    Tiffany, you have done it again :). I have been looking for ways to get more gelatin. Tried your coffee recipe this morning and added the gelatin along with the coconut oil. Yummy!! Love your website! It has helped me tremendously!

  • Rachel April 21, 2015, 5:33 am

    I have been adding coconut oil and gelatin to my coffee for a while but I just measure out both, put them in the bottom of my mug and then pour the hot coffee on top. The froth is nice, I’m sure, but I just keep my spoon in my cup and stir it a few times while drinking. I also do this with hot tea at least one more time throughout the day, if not two more times.

  • Tracy April 21, 2015, 4:33 am

    When I make my cup of coffee I just stir in coconut oil before drinking.. I don’t blend mine.. Should still get the same benefits right??

    • The Coconut Mama April 21, 2015, 8:07 am

      Hi Tracy! Yes, you’ll get the same benefits.

  • Madelein April 20, 2015, 11:39 pm

    Thanks Tiffany … love your info and I am definitely going to try your coffee!

  • lisa April 20, 2015, 10:24 pm

    My husband and I enjoy coffee with a tablespoon of grass fed butter, tablespoon of coconut oil, and (real) maple syrup. Maple syrup pairs really well with coffee, you should try it instead of honey! A cup of coffee usually would hurt my husband’s stomach (the acidity) but we cold press dark roast coffee (both of which reduce the acid) and the added fats to help buffer it means the coffee doesn’t hurt his stomach anymore, and when it’s blended it is frothy deliciousness too! Try adding some cocoa powder and vanilla extract sometime too 🙂

  • Emily April 20, 2015, 10:08 pm

    Hi Tiffany,
    Where you list coffee in your ingredients list, do you just mean coffee powder?
    Thank you


    • The Coconut Mama April 21, 2015, 8:24 am

      Hi Emily! No, I mean brewed coffee (hot or cold brew). 🙂

  • linda April 20, 2015, 8:27 pm

    hi, Tiffany:
    which one of 3 gelatin you use from Great Lakes? Beef gelatin?

    • The Coconut Mama April 20, 2015, 8:37 pm

      The Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate (Green – is what I’m using in my coffee and in my smoothies. 🙂

        Why do you add gelatin? Thanks!

    Sounds great. How much coconut oil do you put into the blender?

  • Lori April 20, 2015, 7:39 pm

    Hey Tiffany! I am also passionate about coconut and love getting your emails on interesting ways to incorporate more coconut into my diet and beauty regime.
    Question: I like my coffee with milk and coconut sugar. Do you think the milk will diminish any of the coconut oil properties or the way my body absorbs them? I noticed you don’t use milk in your recipe or put it in the list of optional add-ins. Any reason other than a preference for black coffee?
    Thanks 🙂

      Hi Lori!

      No, you can add cream or milk or coconut milk. Whatever you like! 🙂

        Ooooh! Coconut milk in my coffee sounds amazing! I will definitely try that one bc I never thought of it! Right now, I’m sipping my coconut coffee and it’s deeelicious! I don’t have a hand blender so I just put it in the regular blender on high for 10 seconds. It came out super frothy and tastes even better than it looks! Thanks again!

          can you just put the coconut oil in your coffee? I don’t have a blender.

            I’d like to know this too as I would bring in my coconut oil into work and spoon it in to coffee. Thanks

              I used to blend and now I just spoon in to save time. The oil rises so it takes awhile to get used to it but my lips are actually softer from the exposure! Also I do use coconut milk and it is awesome!

            I use grated orange rind along with the coconut oil in my coffee, gives it a fantastic flavour.

            No it’s not the same as blending. If you just add it it just floats on top like an oil spill. Blending it makes it creamy and adds a nice froth on top. Tastes completely different.

              I make it in a mason jar, put the lid on and shake it up. This blends it very well. Of course the jar gets hot, so it’s good to have a jar cozy or something 🙂

                i just mix it in like Sugar and tastes wonderful to it as you like!

    Don’t dump the left over coconut oil after cooking etc, feed it to your pets.

    • The Coconut Mama April 20, 2015, 7:46 pm

      That’s a great idea! I don’t have pets, but it’s a good tip for those who do!

    • Ulli April 21, 2015, 2:02 pm

      I have 2 little Shi Tzus and they get a teaspoon of coconut oil every day. They love it!!

  • Carol April 20, 2015, 7:35 pm

    Thanks a heap for your book being available. Your site is simply superb – not over the top and waffling in detail – just right. Off to try the cofee and coconut oil right now.

  • Karen Wood April 20, 2015, 7:30 pm

    I am going to try it! 🙂

  • Karen April 20, 2015, 7:12 pm

    Hi Tiffany, I love your entire site. You get to the point, the recipes are easy and your information is always pertinent. Keep up the fantastic work!
