Ingredients:

  • 4 oz full fat coconut cream or milk (to make extra creamy, freeze your coconut cream beforehand, see notes for lighter option)
  • 2 tbsp coconut MCT oil or melted coconut oil (grass fed butter also works)
  • 8 oz almond or unsweetened coconut drinking milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • dash of sea salt
  • 1/2 tbsp creamy almond butter or sunflower seed butter
  • Optional add ins to sweeten it – berries, stevia leaf or xylitol, cinnamon, banana or maple syrup for extra sweetness (banana and maple syrup will add additional carbohydrates but still very nutrient dense and healthy)

Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender, blend all together and go. For more protein add in 1-2 tbsp grass fed collagen protein or vegan protein powder of choice.
  2. MCT oil to add if desired. (if you add extra coconut oil, be sure to consume right away so the shake doesn’t get clumpy). See notes.
  3. Note 1: This makes 2 smaller, very filling shakes or 1 large nutrient dense chocolate shake.
  4. Note 2: This shake is rich, but not sweet if you don’t add a sweetener. Erythritol or a xylitol sweetener like swerve are diabetic friendly. Or you can add stevia.
  5. Note 3: If you don’t care about carbohydrate intake, feel free to add in banana and/or maple syrup.
  6. Note 4: To lighten up, replace the coconut cream with almond milk (unsweetened) or coconut drinking milk. Still add in the MCT oils or melted coconut oil.
  7. Note 5: This shake can also be heated to make a creamy low carb creamy hot chocolate.
  8. Serving size: 6 oz.
