Egg and Butter Coffee, Plus 3 Flavoring Options

Egg and Butter Coffee. Don't knock it 'til you try it! ~Pickle Me Too

Egg and Butter coffee?  Huh? That’s disgusting!

Well, that was my first thought when I heard of this concoction from Mark’s Daily Apple (his article is here: Primal Egg Coffee).  It sounded so awful but the thought of getting my breakfast in a cup so easily sounded appealing enough to give it a try.  Now it’s the only way I take my coffee.  I wonder what would happen if I order one at Starbucks?

Yes, I do use raw eggs.  I get my eggs for a farmer I trust.  From free range chickens fed a non-vegetarian diet free of soy (chickens are not vegetarians!). I don’t recommend using raw eggs from the store. If you are concerned about using raw eggs, just make sure your coffee is piping hot. Eggs are a great emulsifier so whipping this together with a blender keeps the lovely fats from separating. Adding fat to your coffee is a good way to add healthy saturated fats to your diet.  Yes, I said good and healthy SATURATED fats.  Your body needs these once vilified fats.

You can easily make these dairy free by subbing coconut oil for the butter or ghee if you can tolerate it. Even though it’s dairy free, it’s rich and creamy, like a full fat creamer would be.  And the froth… oh man, the froth.

Now some people say salted coffee is awful so they recommend using unsalted butter but I beg to differ.  The pinch of salt, especially if you sweeten your coffee, tastes delicious.  If you like your coffee unsweetened, I would make sure to use unsalted butter though.


Egg Butter Coffee

Just look at that foamy deliciousness.

Egg and Butter Coffee

  • 2 tbsp butter, coconut oil or ghee (optional but so good)

  1. Brew your coffee to your preference (I like to use 1-2 tbsp per 8oz cup in my coffee press).
  2. Blend eggs, oil, and sweetener. I do this in a large cup with my stick blender.
  3. Pour in coffee and blend until smooth and foamy.
  4. Enjoy!
