Pod Party! Up Your Single-Serve Coffee Game With These 9 Recipes

Love coffee but don’t love waiting for a whole pot to brew? Whether you’re in a time crunch or you only need to make one cup, single-serve Bulletproof Coffee Pods are a convenient solution to take care of your needs.

You can sip your favorite signature roast by using a Keurig-compatible** pod. Or, if you enjoy the taste of espresso, our Nespresso** Original Line-compatible pods will do the trick. No matter which route you prefer, these delicious, pod-inspired recipes will teach you how to get the most out of your single-serve favorites.

1. Sea Salt Hazelnut Mocha

This coffee-meets-chocolate recipe will make all your mocha dreams come true! The cocoa-hazelnut finish of Bulletproof Original Coffee Pods pairs perfectly with keto-friendly Bulletproof Hazelnut Creamer. And it’s incredibly satisfying to stir this single-serve drink with a row of a Bulletproof Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bar—instead of a spoon.

2. The Bold Remedy Coffee Martini

You don’t need a barista or a mixologist to create a classy coffee martini right at home. Grab some ice and your vodka of choice, open a can of Bulletproof Lightly Sweetened Cold Brew Black, brew a Bulletproof The Mentalist Espresso Pod and shake until this sugar-free cocktail is ready to sip and savor.

3. Creamy Keto Affogato

High-fat and high-flavor: This keto affogato combines sweet keto ice cream with rich espresso for a dessert with amazing perks. (Paleo, LCHF, Sugar-Free)

There’s something special about watching hot coffee and cold ice cream join forces. This keto-friendly affogato uses a scoop of homemade, sugar-free ice cream and a freshly brewed The Mentalist Espresso Pod to make an Italian-inspired dessert that’s sure to satisfy…

4. Gingerbread Latte

If you’re a fan of iced coffee, you definitely need to give these easy mocha creamsicles a try. Full-fat coconut milk and a Bulletproof Brain Octane C8 MCT Oil deliver quality fats and help the mixture achieve the right consistency. Two The Mentalist Espresso Pods add depth, and cacao, along with a touch of Himalayan pink salt, round out the flavor profile of this frozen treat.

6. Gluten-Free Bulletproof Espresso Donuts
