First, I went paleo. Then, I went low carb paleo. NOW, I've gone keto paleo. I'm a firm believer in food as medicine and really getting in there and figuring out what works best for you. This progression has been my journey living that.
Since figuring out that ketogenic macro levels are where I thrive I have been on the quest to make a good, creamy, frozen chocolate protein shake. I missed them terribly. Previously my cheat was a frozen banana, but that's too high carb for my current macros. Well, after much trial and error testing, I think I've finally got it figured out!
Two words: Frozen. Cauliflower.
I know, I know, sounds weird, but seriously, try it! It's perfection. A great way to sneak in those nutrient-dense, low carb veggies. Plus, the MCT Powder makes this sooooo good and keto diet friendly.
Whether you're low carb, keto, paleo, or just eat LCHF this shake is for you. It's completely delicious, packed with protein and MCT's, and is a great way to sneak in more veggies while still feeling like a treat. Total win. It makes a great post-workout shake or anytime craving-busting treat.
Perfect Keto Frozen Chocolate Protein Shake Recipe
1 or 2 scoops MCT Powder
1 cup frozen cauliflower
Blend all ingredients in your blender until smooth. About a minute, depending on your blender.
Change it up by using any flavor low carb protein powder. French Vanillaand Cafe Latteare amazing in this as well. Also, this is a great recipe to add your exogenous ketones to if you're struggling with the taste of those. It can really help mask that BHB salts taste. The chocolate sea salt is the perfect addition (though it is one I feel tastes fine on its own!).
Let me know if you try it!
