Keto Breakfast Recipe Drink Chocolate On a typical weekday, we might not always have time to enjoy a satisfying breakfast.
Busy schedules and mornings on the go can leave you without enough time to prepare a keto breakfast.
These are the days when I love a simple yet decadent shake that I can sip in the car or sip while I work on my to-do list early in the morning.
Not to mention it’s incredibly thick and rich in dark chocolate!
After years of being a smoothie junkie, I’ve found that the best way to add the needed thickness and fat to any blended mix is coconut cream.
You can buy pure coconut cream from grocery stores which makes measuring easy, but if you can’t find pure coconut cream it makes it simple.
Just put a can of whole coconut milk in the fridge and let it cool for an entire day.
Then turn the can upside down and carefully open it with a can opener. The bottom of the canister is where the liquid is, while the cream hardens on top.
Pour the liquid outside to reserve for other recipes and you’re left with frosted cream that’s a delicious, dairy-free alternative to whipped cream.
I like to keep a couple of jars in the ice chest consistently so they are all set when I want them! I like to keep a couple of jars in the ice chest consistently so they are all set when I want them!
Another addition to this smoothie is the avocado! As you know, avocado is a keto dieter’s best friend and can be even more beneficial for those of us who don’t eat dairy and are looking to increase the fat content of our meals.
The texture becomes smooth once blended and the avocado flavor is perfectly masked with two forms of dark chocolate!
You won’t even notice the avocado in this shake because you’ll be too busy enjoying chunks of low-carb chocolate chips.
One note about processing the shake for the perfect texture: Whisk the dry ingredients in a blender first, then add the other whipped ingredients.
This step is very important because it cuts the chocolate into small pieces while crushing the hemp seeds and softening the whole thing.
Once the dust has settled, open the blender and add the rest of the ingredients. It creates a new and different world!
