Good morning and a very happy Friday to you!

If you’re sick of the same old Pumpkin Spice Latte, boyyyyy, do I have a special (and nutritious) treat for you: Bulletproof Iced Butternut Latte. Oooh, yes. It’s a new favorite in our house. It tastes like fall in a glass! And there’s a protein smoothie version of it, which is truly the perfect way to start the day. Just keep reading for the recipe! 🙂

Bulletproof Butternut Latte

This nice folks from Bulletproof recently sent me some of their products to try out, including their well-known Bulletproof Coffee, which definitely lives up to its reputation (omgggg, it’s incredible – full-bodied, strong, but smooth) as well as their Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil, Grass-Fed Ghee, some fun “coffee upgrades,” and Bulletproof: The Cookbook. (FYI: Bulletproof actually has a lot of cool products on their website from collagen protein and supplements to Performance and Coffee Starter Kits, so be sure to definitely check it out!) The cookbook, in particular, caught my attention.

Bulletproof: The Cookbook contains 125 recipes that are delicious, real food meals that align with the Bulletproof diet. While I’m not a follower to the Bulletproof lifestyle, I immediately liked its famous butter-laden Bulletproof Coffee, so, not surprisingly, many of the coffee recipes piqued my interest.


The Bulletproof Butternut Latte sounded particularly appealing, especially as an alternative to the popular Pumpkin Spice Latte. While I love a good PSL, after drinking a few, the novelty kind of wears off and I’m ready for something different, which is why I was immediately drawn to the Bulletproof Butternut Latte. And, of course, I love my coffee iced, so I created my own recipe inspired by it and, guys, it’s a GOOD ONE for sure. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!



  • 2 cups iced Bulletproof Coffee (brew normally and chill overnight in the refrigerator)
  • 2 tbsp Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil
  • 2-3 tbsp cream
  • 1 cup cooked butternut squash cubes
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • sweetener of your choice (optional)


Directions: In a blender, combine iced coffee, coconut oil, cream, butternut squash, and pumpkin pie spice. Blend until there’s a thick layer of foam on top, like a latte. If desired, sweeten to taste. Makes 2 iced lattes (or one really big one).

Protein smoothie option: Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder (~30g) and a handful of ice to the above ingredients. Combine in blender until smooth. Makes 2 smoothies.



  1. Funny, I just decided to try the buttery bulletproof coffee and I love it, too. That MCT oil really did make me sharp and alert, perfect before a workout-/and I stay full until 1 for lunch. It’s not something is do every morning, but I’ll look forward to it, again!
