Pudding, Dip and Dressing: New Ways to Take Your MCT Oil Powder

“Just add it to your morning coffee!”

It’s the universally accepted way to take a tasteless supplement: slip it into your coffee without a second thought. After all, if you’re anything like us, it either takes a cup of coffee or an act of God to get going in the morning, and it takes 0.2 seconds to pour and mix a scoop of BUBS Naturals MCT Oil Powder into your brew.

Boom, done. You can move on with your day without a second thought.

But if, and when that routine gets old, it’s great to know that other options exist. Taking your daily MCT Oil Powder is a no-brainer, so are these new ways to consume the same fast-acting energy source you’ve come to love. Pull out the pie tins and whip out the blender - we’re about to get crazy.


MCT Oil Powder for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner


Ideally, your meals should be designed to provide you with the benefits you need to maintain high performance throughout the day. Of course, we understand the time it takes to meal prep to that level of perfection, and we wouldn’t ever shame you for the occasional (ahem, frequent) pizza delivery. For the days when you’re feeling ambitious, we’ve got you covered. Check out these awesome recipes boosted with BUBS Naturals MCT Oil Powder for a meal that’s delicious and highly nutritious.

Keto Chia Pudding

Mix together chia seeds, your choice of nut milk (the recipe calls for almond milk, but we wanted to give you some creative license), a little vanilla extract, liquid stevia and one scoop of MCT Oil Powder. Pop it in the fridge overnight and enjoy it on your way out the door the next morning. Feel free to garnish to your heart’s content with berries, a dusting of cinnamon, some almonds...the possibilities are endless.

Garlic-Lime Mini Sweet Potato Puffs with Chili Yogurt Dip

This recipe claims to have discovered healthy tater-tots.

Yup, you read that right.

These sweet potatoes are all dressed up with cilantro, onion, garlic, lime and a couple of spices for a truly delicious snack. Mix a scoop of MCT Oil Powder in with the salt and pepper (since the powder is easier on the digestive system overall). You won’t even be able to taste it, but your body will recognize it and waste not a moment using it to your benefit.

Condiments, Anybody?


Believe it or not, condiments are also a great way to take your MCT oil powder. There are tons to choose from, but we thought these looked especially tasty to add a little something extra to your meal.

Salad Dressings

We would 10/10 suggest taking a look-see through this list of dairy-free, sugar-free, salad dressings to jazz up your leafy greens. From “Tahini Detox” to “Thai Almond,” it’s easy to get lost in the options. Each recipe offers suggestions for substitutions, and after adding in a bit of MCT Oil Powder, you’ll also feel fuller, for longer.

Guacamole

Why pay extra for guac when you can make it yourself? Stir in your daily scoop of BUBS Naturals MCT Oil Powder with the rest of guac’s spices and proceed as normal. And of course, play with the recipe for some fun variations. Not into chives? (Blasphemy!) Try some chopped onion instead! Don’t have apple cider vinegar lying around? (Do you even eat healthy, bro?) No problem, it tastes just as good without. Want a little extra kick? Mince up a jalapeno and stir it into the mess. (Pro tip: keep those jalapeno seeds for an extra spicy punch, you brave, brave thing.)


Tasty Treats


No matter what diet you’re following, everyone gets a craving for a little sweet treat here and there. But just because a recipe satisfies your cravings doesn’t mean it has to be bad for you. In fact, that’s one of the beauties of diets such as keto - by using top quality ingredients with rich flavors, you’ll be able to enjoy maximum treats with minimum guilt.


Dark Chocolate Matcha Coconut Butter Keto Cups


There’s a lot to love about this recipe, but we especially adore the lack of fancy baking supplies it calls for - just dust off your muffin tin and you’re good to go! The recipe calls for dark chocolate, coconut oil and butter, matcha powder, coconut milk and vanilla bean powder, as well as MCT Oil Powder as an optional (yet recommended) mix-in. Just a quick glance over that list is a clue-in to how amazing this treat is for your taste buds and your body, what with the antioxidant powers of dark chocolate and matcha and the energy-boosting capabilities of MCT powder. Not a fan of coconut? Not a problem! Just substitute in your favorite nut butter. Mix and match(a) until you’ve created your ideal concoction.

Peanut Butter Caramel Milkshake

This delicious milkshake contains 8.1g of protein, whipped up with the main ingredients of coconut milk and peanut butter. But again, substitutions can be made if you’re more of an almond butter or cashew milk person. This can be a delicious, mid-afternoon snack to give you a little burst of energy to finish out the day. Make your milkshake and enjoy immediately, or blend up a little extra and keep it stored in the freezer for an effortless snack throughout your week!

So, what’ll it be?

We could list recipes for hours, but we know you don’t have the time to read that (nor do we have the time to write it, to be honest).

We do hope this MCT Oil Powder collection offers some ideas for ways to incorporate your BUBS Naturals MCT Oil Powder into your meals. And if all else fails, just sprinkle that daily serving on top of whatever oatmeal, soup, chili or smoothie you’re vibing on, and enjoy!
