I pretty sure this website (and my YouTube channel) runs on coffee, but sometimes I like to shake things up a bit. During my Vegan Keto experiment, I decided to try and make a version of Bulletproof Coffee that was a bit more whole-foods based, and without the coffee. The result is this Bulletproof Style Cashew Matcha Latte.
On its own, it packs a nice energy and fat boost, but it’s a blank canvas to be embellished as you will. If you are strictly following a Keto diet, then you can add MCT or coconut oil to the mix to increase your fat macros. If you want it sweeter or flavored in a certain way, then you can add your favorite flavored stevia drops.

If you’re trying to get your fats and energy levels up in the morning, this is a great, coffee-free alternative to bulletproof coffee. If you’re not interested in adding oil to your morning cup of tea, then just omit it for a delicious and creamy green tea treat.
- 1/2 teaspoon matcha tea powder
- 14 grams raw cashews
- 1 tablespoon MCT Oil or virgin coconut oil
- 1 cup hot water
Heat your water. To a blender, or blender cup, add all of the ingredients, and blend until creamy. If using a blender cup, stop blending every few seconds and release the steam pressure. Serve warm.
If you want to sweeten it up a bit, you could add a few drops of your favorite stevia drops or sugar free sweetener.
