5 EASY WAYS TO USE POWDERED MCT OIL
While MCTs aren’t actually ketones, they can be used as a source of energy, both in the form of fat (because they’re a fat) and ketones (because the body can quickly convert MCTs to ketones). MCTs can be used directly by mitochondria for energy production and can also be made into ketone bodies. It can also assist with weight loss in few different ways, including enhanced satiety and increased resting energy expenditure—but we’ll revisit this later.
1. YOUR FAVOURITE HOT DRINK
Dan loves to have her MCT oil in her tea each morning, and I love to have mine in my coffee, but you could also add it to your hot chocolate, bone broth, matcha or whatever your preferred drink is. Adding the powdered MCT oil will not alter the taste, but will give a nice creamy texture.
The great thing about the powdered MCT oil is that there is no need to blend your drink. You can always blend it if you prefer a nice creamy and frothy drink, but if you are on the go or travelling it is so easy to stir it in. P.S. How good does this Frappuccino look?
2. PRE-WORKOUT, PROTEIN SHAKE OR SMOOTHIE
Powdered MCT oil is perfect to add to any cold drink as it is tasteless and there is not a need to blend to emulsify it. You could easily add some to your favourite pre-workout drink, protein shake or smoothie to boost your energy levels.
Dan loves to take the Perfect Keto Perform pre-workout drink, which contains some MCT oil before she goes to Crossfit and she has noticed an improvement in her stamina and energy levels. You could try our Chocolate Fat Bomb smoothie recipe which has collagen and MCT oil powder in it.
3. CHIA PUDDING

How much mct powder per day?
You can add MCT oil to many foods and drinks. Most commonly, you’ll find it in:
Because most MCT oil has a low burning point, it’s not a good idea to fry things with it.
The amount you should take depends on how well you tolerate it, and what benefit you’re trying to get. The most you should have in a day is around 4 to 7 tablespoons. Ideally, you should spread those tablespoons out throughout the day.
You may not feel well if you eat large amounts of it. You can get:
Talk to a dietitian to find a dose that’s right for you. And since MCT oil doesn’t have essential fatty acids, you should include other fat in your diet.
How to use mct oil powder in coffee?
One of the things I haven't loved about my boosted coffee variations in the past is that awful oil slick on the top of my cup once the ingredients settle. You know, on the rare occasion that I don't drink my coffee like the world is actually ending any second. Even after I use my milk frother to get it nice and creamy, it still settles and separates again if you don't drink it fast enough.
One of the ways I have been able to counteract the oil slick is by switching over to an MCT Oil Powder instead of the oil. I found an awesome company called Perfect Keto that makes it in a powder form. Not only is it zero net carbs per serving, but it is gluten free, keto, and dairy free too. Before I get too far into what MCTs actually are, let me tell you a little bit more about the convenience of MCT Oil Powder versus MCT oil.
