Video + Recipe: Fat-Burning Rocket Fuel Latte for Women (butter-free, dairy-free, low carb, paleo, keto)

Fat-Burning Rocket Fuel Latte for Women #dairyfree #lowcarb #highfat #paleo #ketoUse hemp seeds and cacao butter as the base to your creamy keto “butter coffee” to turbocharge fat burning while regulating your hormones and abolishing cravings.

There’s this keto thing that everyone’s drinking called Bulletproof Coffee. Maybe you’ve heard of it? It’s a blend of MCT oil and grass-fed butter with… coffee.

Maybe you’re thinking, “Drinking fat? Leanne, you have me ALL wrong.” Please, give me a chance.


Here’s the thing, I’ve realized that the classic keto blended coffee combo of MCT oil (or coconut oil) and butter doesn’t work for (most) women. It leads to cravings, blood sugar lows, shakiness and hormone fluctuations. All bad things.

Over the last 3 months, I’ve been adjusting the original keto recipe to come up with a keto formula that works better for women: that keeps us in a fat-burning state, maintains our morning fast, regulates hormones and without using butter. Because for most of us, butter makes our insides go crazy.

And I call it, the Rocket Fuel Latte.

I show you why the classic keto “butter coffee” doesn’t work for women and the simple steps you can do to be a keto, fat-burning machine, all day long.

This White Chocolate Rocket Fuel Latte formula has…

  • The MCT oil: boosts metabolism, kicks up our fat burning.
  • The cacao butter: boosts serotonin levels so you start the day off happily.
  • The collagen: resets leptin, so that your body understands what fuel is what.
  • The hemp hearts: send the message to your body; specifically your hormone system, that everything is safe. 3 tablespoons of hemp hearts are 0 net carbs, so shouldn’t stop your “fast” if you’re practicing intermittent fasting.

I’ve become quite particular about my coffee beans. I’ve had good coffee beans (that make me feel on top of the world) and bad coffee beans (that make me sleepy, grumpy, stupid and shaky). I only recommend things on the blog that have worked for me, that I trust will work for you, too. Which is why I recommend the Bulletproof brand of decaf coffee and regular coffee as my coffee of choice. It’s the only bean I’ve used that consistently makes me feel good. Take it or leave it.

If you’re already drinking Bulletproof Coffee and you give my keto Rocket Fuel Latte a try, I’d love to hear how you feel. Let’s chat about it in the comments.

If you’re new to the drinking fat thing, think of this as a sugar-free smoothie. It’ll do you good!


I’m making a video for you! You like that? I said I promised I would sing to you. There you have it so you can all get off my back. No, I’m just kidding. I’ll totally sing for you again. Or, if your cat propped up his ears and started having a hairball incident in his throat, just tell me to never sing again and I will honor your request. Nothing to do with singing or cats or hairballs, we are going to talk about how to make your Bulletproof Coffee better. What is a Bulletproof Coffee? You may have also heard it called butter coffee. Basically it is a fat filled drink that you eat in the morning, or rather drink in the morning, instead of having breakfast. It’s a blend of usually coffee or tea, or you can use hot water. You blend it with MCT oil. There’s been a little bit of chatter online about how MCT oil is evil and shouldn’t be consumed. I don’t prescribe to that approach. Also, in a classic butter coffee, or Bulletproof Coffee, there’s butter.

Here’s the problem that I have with the classic Bulletproof Coffee of MCT oil and butter, especially when it comes to women’s health. A lot of my clients when working with one-on-one, and also in our keto group, which you gain access to when you purchase my book, The Keto Beginning. After the blended concoction, whether you make it with coffee, tea, or water, a lot of people have been dealing with cravings after it, or low blood sugar to the point that they get shaky, or hormone fluctuations. A lot of people are allergic to dairy, meaning that they can’t put the butter in the coffee. If this is you and you’re noticing some strange things after you have your butter or Bulletproof Coffee … Heck, maybe you’re vegan and you don’t do the butter and you don’t feel like downing some coffee with a bunch of MCT oil in it. [00:02:00]

I’ve changed up a couple of things in the Bulletproof Coffee recipe that I seen butter resonates with the women in our community as well as with myself. I’ve called it the Rocket Fuel Latte. You’re probably thinking, “Leanne, what the heck? I’m going to have fat in my coffee in the morning? That is gross.” Here is how Rocket Fuel Lattes work so that you get on the bus with me and we drive to Rocket Fuel Latte town. The first thing is fat burning. When you wake up in the morning your body is primed to burn fat. What happens when we start our day off with a bowl of cereal, oatmeal, or maybe a slice of toast with some avocado on it? We stop the fat burning magic from happening, it’s quite sad, really.

The other reason why starting off the day with a Rocket Fuel Latte is awesome is because it sends the signals telling our bodies that everything is okay. With a Rocket Fuel Latte we’re sending a specific signal to your hormones leptin and ghrelin that tell us that we’re happy, we have the fuel that we need, and that all is good with life. When we have just MCT oil with the butter it can confuse these hormones. Leptin, for example, I imagine it like a little taxi driver that goes through your body and tells your body what fuel it has, what fuel it doesn’t. This little taxi driver gets up to your brain and says, “We need more fuel.” Your brain goes, “Oh my gosh, we need more fuel.” Really, leptin is all messed up because there’s tons of fuel left, leptin just got the wrong message and it’s like the telephone game and he got really confused along his way.

By using the Rocket Fuel Latte approach we make sure that those hormones specifically are calmed down and as women we also tell our endocrine system, which creates all of our estrogen, progesterone, and everything, to continue being good and happy and solid and perfect. There’s a [00:04:00] couple rules around making a successful Rocket Fuel Latte, and they all revolve around making sure that we stay in a fasted state for the morning because that’s when we’re going to burn the most fuel.

A couple of rules, there’s four of them. The first one is, less than 10 grams of protein per serving. The second one is, put as much fat in there as you’d like, girl! The third one is, make it less than three grams of carbohydrates. The fourth one is, if you stop eating at night at 9:00PM you are going to have your coffee at 9:00AM. There’s only a 12 hour window between the time you have your last meal and the time you have your Rocket Fuel Latte. Any more than that and it sends that danger signal, especially as women, saying that, “Not everything is safe, we should stop producing certain hormones,” and it can get all crazy on us.

Now, maybe you’re like, how can I get this rocket fuel action going in my life so that I can be situated? So that I can have normal hormones and that my blood sugar is regulated? That I can enjoy my blended coffee without the use of dairy because butter makes my insides crazy? So that I can abolish my morning and mid-morning cravings? And so that I can have a level head and a strong brain? Through the magic of technology, if you are watching this video on the answer and the recipe for my Rocket Fuel Latte is below this video.

  1. Leanne
    thank you SO much for sharing your knowledge and passion with us. I just found you at a time when I thought a Keto life would not happen. I have more questions than answers and other literature feels so automated. I have a question for the human woman:
    What is the difference between MCT oil and coconut oil?
    when I started to buy i found Coconut MCT oil…. and I think Bullet Proof calls it MCT something else too…

  2. Hi Leanne,
    Just found your website and I love it! And love this rocket fuel! Didn’t have cocoa butter and so subbed butter and unsweetened chocolate. Seems to work as it is delicious! I also do intermittent fasting, and don’t usually eat until 1-2pm (about 17hours) and so just wanted to make sure I’m understanding this correctly-you don’t recommend fasting this long, and this rocket fuel will take you out of a fasted state. Thank you!!

    • Great idea! It depends on the person, but the Rocket Fuel Latte probably won’t take you out of ketosis. I found that sticking to less than 3 net grams of carbs and 10 grams of protein (which is what this recipe follows) didn’t effect me being in ketosis. Feel free to fast for whatever duration feels best for you!

  3. I’ve been keto for 4+ months and have been doing a 16:8 fast with no cravings… however my menstrual cycle has been crazy…I thought it was the low carbs, however after some research I now believe it’s the IF… so per some recommendations I started BPC last week with 1 TBS each of brain octane and butter. The results so far? Starving upon waking and food cravings all darn day. I was like.. wtf is going on?!?! Not what Asprey says should happen… anyway, after posting about this in a FB group, a member suggested your page and your Rocket fuel latte. I’ll give this a shot starting tomorrow!! Although no cocoa butter on hand for time being…Hoping this does the trick!

  4. I’m sorry if this has been asked before but why is the rocket fuel for women? My boyfriend and I are going on this together, is this ok for him too?

    • It’s totally fine for him, too! The video has more of an explanation, but I found that Bulletproof coffee wasn’t working well for me or many of my female clients and that’s why I created the Rocket Fuel Latte.

  5. Has anyone had issues with it separating once made? The hemp seeds that didn’t break down , sat at the bottom of the glass.
    I had already combined the collagen protein with the hemp seeds so maybe I shouldn’t have blended together for the whole time?

  6. this looks delicious!! am i able to substitute the hemp hearts with anything? i can’t get them here :( can i also replace the cacao butter, or leave it out? food is expensive here, and i’m on a pretty strict budget, but if i can find it, i’ll try it :D
    i’ve only got a stick mixer type blender, would i still be able to make this?

    • Thanks, Kayla! You can replace the hemp hearts with your favorite nut/seed butter. You can replace the cacao butter with extra coconut oil, unsweetened dark chocolate, or any of your favorite fats/oils. A stick blender should work just fine!

  7. I love this, and it makes me feel so full, I don’t even want to snack until lunchtime!

    Starting out on a proper keto diet today with one of these felt like a treat rather than a restriction!

  8. Greetings Leanne! I enjoy your Rocket Fuel Latte recipe every morning. I was wondering if it can be consumed more than once a day. Many thanks for sharing!

  9. Hi Leanne,
    I have found that 1 tbsp=13.6 grams of cocoa butter. I keep mine in the fridge, thus it’s quite hard. Is 13.6g the correct weight I should be using? Thanks so much! Happy Holidays!!

    • Mine comes out to about 15 grams but you can just use this recipe as a base and add as much fat as you’d like! It’s alright if you have a little less or a little more cacao butter than what’s called for. Happy Holidays to you!
