If you are tired of choking down traditional protein shakes that lack flavor, are chalky, and are filled with less than desirable ingredients, this recipe is for you. This keto version of a chocolate milkshake will not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but it will also provide the proper fuel to feed your muscles and speed up joint recovery. Keep your body in ketosis and running at optimal levels with this triple chocolate milkshake. The three types of chocolate in this keto shake all provide an abundance of rich flavor, but also provide very different healthful benefits.
Some of the ingredients in this recipe are:
The original and most natural form of chocolate, cacao contains a wide variety of phytonutrients, antioxidants, and essential minerals. Cacao beans are rich in magnesium, which is needed in the body to carry out over 300 processes. It is a key nutrient in nerve and muscle function. Cacao is also a fiber-rich food which will help keep you feeling fuller for a longer amount of time. This can help with weight loss on your ketogenic plan. In addition, cacao is also heart healthy due to its antioxidant content. It will help absorb the free radicals and damage caused in the body.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is necessary for the repair, growth, and maintenance of virtually every tissue we have such as hair, skin, nails, muscles, tendons, joints, bones, heart, stomach, and even our brain. Unfortunately, as we age, the body loses collagen, so it’s even more important to eat collagen-rich foods and supplement when possible. Adding Perfect Keto Grass-Fed Chocolate Collagen to this keto shake will give an extra boost of chocolate flavor, boost your metabolism, and help strengthen all of the tissues in your body.
MCTs or medium chain triglycerides are the ultimate energy source. It is ideal on a ketogenic diet to help provide ketones and create a strong thermogenic effect. This type of healthy saturated fat is quickly absorbed in the body and metabolized in the liver for quick energy. It has positive effects on weight because it is not stored as fat and creates a higher caloric burn. MCTs will also help keep you feeling fuller longer, which can aid in weight loss.
Satisfy your sweet, chocolate craving and reap all of the benefits that the various forms of chocolate in this recipe this has to offer. You will feel energized, healthy, full, and you’ll be running at optimal energy levels. It’s also a great bonus that this milkshake can serve as a very quick and easy meal replacement. If you only have 1 to 2 minutes to spare, this is a wonderful option for you to make and take on the go.
