Not sure what a Rocket Fuel Latte is? Check this out.

I’ve prepared a couple of Rocket Fuel Latte recipes since the original recipe in 2015. But something I’ve never done is provide a complete guide on how to make the Rocket Fuel Latte caffeine-free. About time, right?

Making a daily Rocket Fuel Latte (RFL) helps me fuel my awesome, keeping my nutrition game strong, and staying focused on what makes my body feel good. If you’re anything like me, playing around with ingredients to find the ones that suit me best, knowing that these ingredients change often as my body adjusts what it needs, and staying away from caffeine are just some of the ways I stay committed to health.

The thing I love most about the RFL is how quickly it can be prepared. At any given moment, you are less than 5 minutes away from an RFL. And, I like that – knowing I have a keto powerhouse in my back pocket at any given time.

There are so, so many components that make up a Rocket Fuel Latte, but I’d like to hone in on one of the recipes in today’s video that includes Bob’s Red Mill Chia Seeds. In the classic recipe, the seed used is hemp, but I’ve heard from a lot of you that hemp doesn’t work for you because of allergies, the industry you’re in, or that you don’t enjoy how they react in your blender (see below for more details).

If you’re one of these people, swap out the hemp for chia and let me know how it goes for you! I’ve always found chia to aid in my digestive health, and with a tablespoon in every RFL, my tummy always welcomes the drink with a loving embrace.

Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.

You’ll notice that the Rocket Fuel Latte has a couple of must-haves, regardless of the recipe you choose to make:

  • Liquid: to keep things caffeine-free, I like to use things like herbal tea, decaf coffee, or hot water.
  • Carbohydrate: the more carbohydrate added, the smoother the drink. I go for omega-rich seeds such as chia seed and hemp seed because they’ve got limited net carbs. If your blender isn’t strong enough, using these seeds will result in “sludge” at the bottom of your cup. If this happens to you, use nut or seed butters in its place. Lastly, things like full-fat coconut milk will add the carbs for smoothness, but won’t incorporate the ingredients as well as say, Bob’s Red Mill Chia Seeds.
  • Protein: I enjoy using collagen, but any protein powder will do the trick. The more fibrous the protein powder, the more gritty the end result may be.

  1. I’m having issues blending the hemp seeds. Does anyone else have this issue? I use a stick blender because I want to keep it quiet in my house. And my ninjas are too loud.

  2. For those concerned about an exploding blender- I use a Ninja and have some minor issues with hot coffee. To be safe and mess free, I blend about half my cup of coffee with my chosen ingredients and then add it back to my cup. Works for me.

    • That’s a good tip, Lindy! I also recommend not using scalding hot liquids as that cause some issues with the plastic.

  3. I decided to quit coffee and to stick primarily to herbals and the occasional black (caf and decaf) tea. I was looking for a way to up my nutritional game because I do IMF dairy-free keto. Came across your RFL. Ho. Ly. Crap. SOOOO good! Thank you for these recipes. They’re brilliant – but also give me some ideas for future ones. In my RFL today, I did your Eggnog one, but used cacao butter and coconut oil as the fats and threw in some hemp seeds. Really beautiful. Thank you for all your work! I’ve loved your site for quite a while now!

    • Thank you so much, Lisa! And I love that substitution for the Eggnog RFL – I’ll have to try that soon!

  4. I have heard that blending a high temperature mixture (ie through freshly brewed coffee) can cause the blender to explode. I don’t like lukewarm coffee……any thoughts on this? And, thanks, Leanne, your podcasts and latest book are so informative.

    • Hi Robin! I have yet to experience an exploding blender, and I blend hot coffee almost every morning. I could maybe see boiling water being a problem, but brewed coffee is nowhere near hot enough to hit those temperatures.

    • Do you have a Vitamix? This wouldn’t happen in a Vitamix. I have heard of this happening in non-Vitamix blenders, but only when it’s filled too high. Maybe that was the reason for the exploding blender…?

      • That could certainly be it, too! Thanks for the input!

  5. The link you have for cocoa butter has the following warning label, “WARNING: Consuming this product may expose you to chemicals known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.”

    Do you know what it is that would cause this? In the questions section on amazon people did mention cocoa trees grow in lead dense soil.

    • Hey! It looks like the company responded with this statement: “Thank you for your interest in our cacao butter. We understand your concern. Our butter is organic and contains the Cal Prop 65 warning label. Companies are required to place a warning label on any product they sell within California if it exceeds the level that the State has established as risk free for a list of over eight hundred chemicals. These standards are specific to the state of California. The chemical element that triggered this requirement is lead, which is a naturally occurring element that can be frequently found in soil and water. The lead standard in California is more stringent than what is required at the U.S. Federal level, and by other governments including Canada and the European Union.”

      If you’re not comfortable with using that cacao butter, perhaps give this one a try instead. Hope this helps!

  6. Why do you add the collagen the last 10 sec? What happens if you put it in with the rest of the ingredients?

    • I do this because blending the collagen too long can compromise its proteins.

  7. I have been using Bulletproof protein powder in my coffee. Should I use collagen peptides instead? What is the difference? Thank you!

    • Bulletproof sells a collagen-based protein powder- is that what you’re using? I believe their other protein powder is whey-based. If you’re trying to avoid dairy, I would switch to collagen instead of whey. If you’re curious, here’s a video on why I avoid dairy.

  8. I am vegetarian so what could I use in place of the collagen/gelatin?

    • Feel free to use your favorite low-carb vegetarian protein powder. Alternatively, you could use a few tablespoons of hemp hearts and blend that into your drink :)

  9. What would you suggest to use in place of Coconut oil, MCT Oil (as it appears to be made from coconut)? I am allergic to coconut but want to try these awesome recipes. Thanks in advance for any insight you can give.

    • Cacao butter, ghee or butter (if tolerated), avocado oil, red palm oil (if tolerated). Hope this helps!
