Butterscotch Coffee – R-Rating Optional

butterscotch coffee

After months and months of me talking about it, I finally remembered to post the Butterscotch Coffee recipe. I had shared on Periscope and then forgot again. We can all thank National Coffee Day for kicking my memory back into gear and making this post for you. My brain has been at its upper limit for a while heading into the final week before the wedding, building the new house, and I forgot the rest of the list. Needless to say, this butterscotch coffee calms me down and you will love it.

ButterScotch Coffee – Better than Pumpkin Spice Latte’s

After posting on Facebook, I had a LOT of recommendations to make this an adult version as well. I have not tested since I do not drink often but there were quite a few tips to add Captain Morgan, Ciroc Vodka, or some silver Tequila. If you happen to try the adult version, make sure you leave a comment with your recipe so others can try.

I will say, one thing I have been doing daily since discovering Collagen is adding it to any beverage I can. It is completely tasteless and adds 18g of protein per serving while making my body sexy from the inside out. I did an entire post on the Benefits of Collagen. So whether you enjoy the PG-13 version of this or the R-Rated one, make sure you keep it healthy with collagen.

  1. I realize I am late to the game here but just made this sans alcohol as an iced coffee drink (used cold brew) and its DELICIOUS. I am a butterscotch lover and doubted this recipe enough that I had to try it. LOVE IT, thank you!

  2. We get our collagen from bone broths and don’t buy alot of supplements. Is the collagen in this recipe necessary? Thanks.

  3. Wow! Knock my socks off, delicious! I’ve been a fan of yours ever since I bought ‘the paleo kitchen’ cookbook. The recipes you come up with are absolutely devine. Keep ’em coming!

  4. That was amazing. A nice change from my mocha. Being the chocolate fanatic that I am, I’ve also tried it by adding cocoa with a little coconut milk to increase creaminess and it was very good as well.

  5. No words. This stuff is redonk. I made it tonight when a friend came over (and brought gluten-free pumpkin spice cupcakes) and we both were blown away! Thank you for a delicious recipe that will now get me hooked on coffee ;) Dang you! Kidding. It was awesome…and I may have to try it with a little liquor next time.

  6. This is dangerous stuff…and I haven’t even tried the r rated version…bullet proof coffee has been the norm for me for a while now but this took it up a notch! The best part is how easy and delicious it is! Even my 4 yo loves it, asking for “the coffee with the syrup and bubbles on top!” she only gets a little taste?

  7. Ok that was just ridiculously awesome. I was addicted to it this weekend but Monday morning it’s back to reality and leaving the treats for the weekend. I definitely will be trying the adult version. We make adult eggnog with Jim Beam Maple and I think it would also be perfect for this!

  8. Do you think the 2 Tablespoons of Maple syrup adds too much sugar? Also, is 2 Tablespoons of Butter too much for a woman? I use the butter to cook my eggs in too. I already make bullet proof coffee, love it! Is the combo of butter and Maple what gives it the butter scotch taste??

    Thanks so much!!

  9. Made this this morning. So good! I used only 1 tablespoon of butter, but I think next time I make it I’ll used 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon coconut oil. I like the subtle flavor coconut oil gives it.

  10. OMG! This is so yummy! Since it’s 9 o’clock in the morning I made the nice version. When it get colder I will be making the naughty version with whiskey or maybe a vanilla rum! Thanks for the recipe.

  11. G, thanks for always being real, no BS, your offers are not cloaked in lots of words that in the end are not “free”, you have awesome recipes and give aways, stories etc; thanks for being you!
