Bulletproof Christmas Recipes (for parties, gatherings, or the big day)

Appetizer: Chilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

This beautiful chilled asparagus appetizer is simple, yet tasty — and because it’s served cold, it’s a great make-ahead dish. Simply wrap slices of nitrate- and nitrite-free prosciutto around steamed asparagus spears, then drizzle with a zingy lemon dressing. It’s crowd-pleasing in all the best ways.

Side: Keto Low-Carb Bread

This three-ingredient, keto-friendly bread loaf tastes amazing — and because it’s pure protein and quality fat, you can enjoy a slice with dinner and stay in ketosis. Top it with grass-fed butter, and you’re in business.

Main: Bulletproof Lamb Chili

Don’t let this humble recipe fool you — it’s rave-worthy. Just check out the video above. And because it’s made without beans, it’s free of phytates and lectins, aka plant compounds that can be hard on your gut. Learn more with the free Bulletproof Diet Roadmap. Serve this chili with toppings like sliced radishes and cilantro for guests to build their own bowl, and don’t forget the drizzle of finishing oil at the end — it’ll bring out the flavors of the grass-fed lamb. (We like Brain Octane MCT oil.) Not a fan of lamb? Feel free to sub grass-fed beef instead.

Drink: Sugar-Free Christmas Punch with Cinnamon, Mint & Lime

Conventional holiday punches are packed with sugar, dairy and alcohol. If you want something a little lighter and more healthful, this Sugar-Free Christmas Punch recipe hits all the marks. It’s sweetened with herbs, spices and Bulletproof-approved sweeteners, and you’ll love the festive fizz from the sparkling mineral water.

Dessert: Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Mousse Parfait

Prepare a true gift for your guests this holiday season. A rich and decadent way to complete your party meal, this dairy-free parfait is packed with quality fats from coconut milk and avocado. The layer of crumbled Vanilla Shortbread Collagen Protein Bar eats like a cookie, but is packed with collagen protein to support skin, bones and joints. And most importantly, it’s delicious.
