Instructions
  1. Pretty simple, blend all together and go. For more Protein add in 1-2 tbsp grass fed collagen protein or vegan protein powder of choice.
  2. To make EXTRA creamy, freeze your coconut cream beforehand in freezer.
  3. This shake is rich but not sweet if you don't add a sweetener. Xylitol sweetener like Swerve is diabetic friendly. Or you can add stevia. If you don't care about carbohydrate intake, feel free to add in banana/maple syrup.
  4. This makes for 2 smaller very filling shakes or 1 large nutrient dense chocolate shake.
  5. 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.
Recipe Notes

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)

This make for 2 smaller very filling shakes or 1 large nutrient dense chocolate shake.

To lighten it up, replace the coconut cream with almond milk (unsweetened) or coconut drinking milk. Still add in the MCT oils or melted coconut oil.

This shake can also be heated to make a creamy LOW CARB Creamy HOT CHOCOLATE.
