It seems that adding cream and sugar to your coffee is a thing in the past. Now, people are adding butter to their cup of joe, and they say it’s the best thing ever.

Butter and coffee — what’s all the hype about? You might think blending butter with your coffee falls somewhere between completely bizarre and totally intriguing. But developing a cult following like this, there has to be some merit behind it, right?

A double espresso and butter may seem like a heart attack waiting to happen, but this baffling combo is one of the most popular treats in the Keto Diet. The very popular diet is a low-carb and high-fat diet.

Grocery stores are stocking up too, offering ready-to-drink “butter coffees,” creamers and additives. But if you’re too lazy to go out, you can just Google some recipes and you can quickly make it at home.

Of course, there are still a lot of skeptics about the health benefits of this coffee and butter combo. Well, they are not unreasonable for being concerned. We all know that butters are not the healthiest, but not all kinds are bad for you.

For this particular drink, the only butter you should add to your coffee is unsalted and grass-fed butter. And not just any coffee, the coffee beans have to be low-toxin – not the ones you find at the supermarket or Starbucks.

While others are still having a hard time believing that this butter coffee is actually good for you and could be added to your weight loss plan, fans of the beverage are already drinking it as a meal substitute.

Some health experts caution those who are drinking the coffee and butter combo, and those who are planning to try it out, that butter is very high in saturated fat. Also, the recommended two tablespoons of butter will add about 200 calories to your coffee.
