Keto Collagen Chocolate Smoothie

Jump to recipe

Chocolate on keto — you get all the decadent indulgence without the guilt. And you make yourself happy! Always a plus. This smoothie is a delicious alternative to your morning power coffee or an anytime energy boost when you need it.

The ingredients are all ketone-inducing fuels: avocado, chia seeds, almond butter and heavy cream. Perfect Keto’s Keto Collagen adds that chocolatey flavor and a healthy supply of protein, making this smoothie ideal before or after your workout or a grueling workday. It’s also a perfect nutrient boost for your nails, hair, skin and bones.

You need your protein

Adequate amounts of protein is essential in the ketogenic diet. Your body needs protein to function and to give energy to the few parts of your body that can’t process ketones, like some of your liver and red blood cells.

Collagen is famous in the cosmetic industry, but the word “collagen” has Greek roots meaning “glue-producing,” an appropriate name for the substance that holds your body together. Collagen makes up 25% of our bodies’ protein content, found in your bones, tendons, muscles and skin. It’s responsible for providing the best protein for soft-tissue recovery and repair.

Collagen directly aids in:

  • Energy production
  • Building healthy DNA
  • Detoxification and digestion
  • Rebuilding joints, tendons, cartilage, skin, nails, hair, organs, etc.

Incorporate Keto Collagen in your daily routine especially if you have an active lifestyle.

Smoothie Fun Fact

A lactose-intolerant teenager Steve Kuhnau blended fruit juice and fresh fruit to enjoy the texture of the milkshakes his peers enjoyed at the time but couldn’t drink himself. His ‘discovery’ tasted good and also controlled his allergies and blood sugar levels. He opened a health-food store, The Smoothie King.

Before the popularity of Kuhnau’s Smoothie King, “smoothie” was a hippie word to describe anything “smooth,” from machinery and ballpoint pens to brassieres and girdles.
