How To Make A Bone Broth Latte With Coffee

Brew your favorite coffee using any method you prefer.

Heat the broth over medium heat while the coffee is brewing until it’s hot and steamy but not boiling.

Whisk in the remaining ingredients until everything is dissolved, and then combine the bone broth mixture with the coffee.

Pour it into your favorite cup and enjoy a morning mug of bone broth with all the natural flavor of a latte.

Ingredients You Need

  • Coffee – Hot and freshly brewed by your preferred method.
  • Bone broth – Both beef broth and chicken broth will work. However, chicken bone broth has a milder taste.
  • Milk – Raw milk, whole milk, or whichever you typically use. Any non-dairy milk will work.
  • Sweetener – For keto coffee, use a little keto sweetener to taste. You can also use honey, maple syrup, or stevia.
  • Cacao powder – Opt for high-quality cacao powder if possible, so you’ll enjoy a subtle dark chocolate flavor.
  • Butter – Butter gives this bone broth coffee recipe the most indulgent flavor and makes this “bulletproof bone broth”.
  • Egg yolk – Gives an ultra-creamy flavor that I enjoy but remains optional, so add it at your discretion. 
  • Cinnamon – A little ground cinnamon powder is the perfect flavor to make this frothy morning drink more comforting. Plus, you’ll want a bit more for dusting.
  • Vanilla extract – The more pure your vanilla extract is, the more flavorful the bone broth latte will be.

Ingredient Substitutions

Though this latte recipe is simple, there may be a few ingredients you don’t have on hand. 

Below are a few substitutions you can use:

  • Caffeine – This bone broth latte doesn’t need to be caffeinated. You can use decaf coffee or something like Dandy Blend. Any coffee alternative can work.
  • Bone broth – Make homemade broth or buy high-quality store-bought bone broth. Kettle and Fire is a good brand to look for.
  • Milk – Though plant-based milk can be used, full-fat coconut milk is the best choice for a creamy and rich result.
  • Sweetener – If you’re not keto, you can use any sweetener you have on hand, granulated or otherwise. Simply adjust to taste.
  • ButterGrass-fed butter will give a more indulgent, savory taste but substitute with regular butter or a dairy-free choice like coconut oil or MCT oil. Ghee may also be used. If adding egg yolk, you can omit the butter completely, if desired.

Variations

This bone broth coffee recipe is delicious as is but can be customized to your specific preferences.

Try these variations:

  • Make an iced bone broth coffee by starting with a cold brew instead of a hot cup of coffee. Then, mix all the ingredients together with a milk frother and pour over ice.
  • Create a frappuccino by following the directions for the iced coffee but blending the liquid with eight ice cubes in a blender instead. If you prepare ahead of time, you can also use bone broth ice cubes to maximize the quick prep of this drink for any healthy lifestyle.
  • Add a ¼ teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to boost the cozy flavor.
  • Whisk in one tablespoon of collagen protein to bump up your amino acids.
  • Don’t have any bone broth on hand? Use bone broth powder instead! To do this, use one tablespoon of bone broth powder and whisk it into the steaming coffee. Add in an extra two tablespoons of brewed coffee here as well. Do not confuse bone broth powder with bone broth protein powder, though. The latter won’t blend as well.

Diet Modifications

As written in the recipe card, this recipe is naturally gluten-free, sugar-free, low-carb, and low-fiber. If you have additional dietary needs, consider the following modifications.

  • Keto diet – Enjoy the bone broth coffee recipe by using a keto-friendly sugar replacement.
  • Carnivore diet – While these ingredients are not usually included in a carnivore diet (you’ll be better off with a plain-Jane mug of bone broth), they are low-fiber, so those following a keto-carnivore approach can enjoy this warm drink as a new breakfast idea first thing in the morning.
  • Paleo diet – Opt for natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey, and coconut palm sugar.
  • Whole30 diet – Use dairy-free milk and natural sweetener.
  • GAPS diet – If your level allows, use a fresh brew and avoid instant coffee.
  • Low-oxalate diet – Omit the cacao powder.

This recipe is grain-free and nightshade-free. Nut, egg, and dairy-based ingredients are optional.

  1. Brew your favorite coffee using your usual method. You can use a coffee machine, a French press, or any other method you like.
  2. While the coffee is brewing, prep the recipe. Pour the bone broth into a small saucepan and heat it over medium-low heat until it’s hot but not boiling.
  3. Whisk in the sweetener, butter, optional egg yolk, cacao powder, cinnamon and vanilla until everything blends well.
  4. Pour the bone broth mixture and the coffee into your favorite mug.
  5. Heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until it’s steaming but not boiling. Froth the milk with a milk frother or by vigorously whisking by hand until frothy.

Expert Tips

  • Use high-quality organic coffee beans for the best flavor.
  • If you prefer a stronger coffee flavor, use a double shot of espresso or increase the amount of coffee used.
  • You can easily adjust the quantities of cacao, cinnamon, sweetener, and milk according to your personal taste preferences.
  • No milk frother? I suggest you get one if you love making homemade coffee drinks. They are a fun kitchen tool and are typically not too expensive. If you don’t have a frother, whisk the warm milk vigorously in the saucepan until it becomes frothy. Alternatively, pour the milk into a jar no more than halfway full. Then, seal tightly and shake for 20-30 seconds until bubbly.
  • Wondering how to dust with cinnamon? It’s really simple. Use a small fine mesh strainer, even a tea ball will work, and put the cinnamon in it. Then, gently tap it until the cinnamon falls through on top of the frothed milk.
  • Embrace your inner barista by pouring the frothed milk into the coffee, and use a spoon to hold back the foam while you pour. Then, slowly add the foam on top of the coffee.

How To Store This Recipe

I don’t recommend making any kind of coffee or latte beforehand. Coffee always tastes best fresh, and frothed milk tends to lose its fluffy texture. 

If you’re in a rush after making this bone broth latte, pop it into a to-go cup instead of storing it. It will stay warm and still maintain its savory and rich flavor.

More Delicious Drinks

Similar to this butter coffee, ashwagandha coffee is a creamy hot beverage combining the power of a clarifying adaptogen with energizing coffee.

Additionally, keto tea is another bulletproof recipe for people who don’t drink coffee or like the long-lasting effects of fatty drinks. 

If you’re a coffee drinker, you’ll also love an espresso martini!

And why not share healthy hot chocolate with the kids while you wake up with a cup of coffee?

    Wow! I am amazed at the taste. I typically enjoy my lattes made with an aero press, steamed half and half cream and maple syrup. I was expecting this to be less enjoyable given the added health benefits, but that was not the case. I could drink this every day! I used Kettle & Fire Beef Bone Broth, my usual aero press coffee, half and half cream, maple syrup, and whipped some butter into the broth, added a few drops of vanilla and sprinkled with cinnamon.

    Full flavour. Incredibly delicious and satisfying. Thank you for the great recipe. I love the extra thought put into your webpage layout, like being able to multiply the serving size and “cook mode” ❤️
