Summer is the time for cold drinks and snacks, and lucky for you, fellow keto-dieter, because today we will make a refreshing shake that will be your summer favourite. The Keto Coffee Protein Shake is not your ordinary coffee shake. Its ingredients are mainly selected to fit your keto diet.
When it comes to beverages on the keto diet, coffee is our number one choice besides water. Who doesn’t love drinking coffee anyway?
This drink contains almond milk which is the most widely-used plant milk in the US. It has fewer calories and carbs compared to cow’s milk. Almond milk is also enriched in vitamin E and thiamin. Most almond milk is fortified with calcium, making it perfect for your bone health. It is also believed to contribute to overall heart health.
To make our protein shake stand out from the rest, we added avocado to the recipe. This tropical fruit has been known to improve your digestion, fight against cancer, and reduce the risk of depression.
On top of that, we added some hints of coffee to boost your energy in the morning. Coffee was also proven to be beneficial as a post-workout drink since it reduces muscle pain by up to 48%. If you’ve been making hot butter coffee and now looking for a change, this iced protein coffee is a good choice to try.
For the flavour of the shake, we will use cocoa powder and some chocolate with 85% cocoa content. We also replaced sugar with erythritol and mixed in some Perfect Keto Unflavored Keto Collagen for added collagen and protein content.
The drink is quite easy to prepare and only requires about five minutes of your time. Don’t forget to share this drink with your friends and family! Enjoy!
