Easy 4-Ingredient Keto Chocolate Shake

The keto recipe that I’m about to share with you guys is probably the easiest keto shake recipe of all time. Don’t let that fool you though — this 4-ingredient chocolate shake is unbelievably yummy and it’s definitely well worth your time. Just as the name suggests, it’s made with only four simple ingredients that all work together to produce a delicious low carb keto shake. The beauty of this recipe also lies in how easy it is to tweak it according to your needs. Want more protein in your shake? Just mix in some protein powder. Looking to up the fat content? No problem — just add a few extra fat-heavy ingredients like cocoa butter. Those suggestions are all totally optional though, as this shake easily stands on its own as one of the best tasting keto shakes you’ll ever try.

A Little Taste of Heaven

I’m sure that you’re all well aware by now how much I just love simplicity when it comes to my recipes. If a recipe is super easy to follow while still producing amazing results, then I’m all over it. That’s precisely what this 4-ingredient chocolate shake recipe manages to do — just add some heavy cream, unsweetened almond milk, cocoa powder, and Stevia into a blender with some ice cubes. That’s literally all you have to do! Blend it all together and get set to enjoy a delicious chocolate shake that’s actually good for you.

Wondering what makes this chocolate shake so healthy? First off, the use of cocoa powder provides you with an abundance of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that help to prevent diseases and decrease insulin resistance. (1) Second, using Stevia as a low carb sweetener instead of refined sugar means that you can enjoy a yummy chocolate shake that won’t contribute to obesity, tooth decay, or diabetes, as sugar is known to do. (2)

If you’re also looking for some recommendations on either upping the protein or fat content of this recipe, I’ve got you covered there as well. To turn this tasty treat into a pre or post-workout protein shake, you can simply add in some keto-friendly chocolate protein powder. I recommend a chocolate powder made specifically for keto dieters that includes both grass-fed collagen and MCT powder, which you can buy here.

As far as increasing the fat content to make it even more keto-friendly, you’ve got quite a few options. Keeping with the chocolate theme, I would recommend adding some cocoa butter into the mix, or even some chocolate chips. We actually have a low carb and sugar-free homemade chocolate chips recipe that would make a perfect addition to this shake. Try it out!

22 Healthy High-Protein Smoothies That Keep You Full

Smoothies are a great way to get a nutrient-packed meal or snack, stat. They provide everything you need&mdashprotein, healthy fats, vegetables, and fruits&mdashall in one convenient package.

"Smoothies make for a convenient, portable, and easy meal (or snack) with no cooking skills required," says sports dietitian Marni Sumbal, M.S., C.S.S.D., author of Essential Sports Nutrition.

"Overall, the drink can be a compact way to obtain key nutrients that may be otherwise lacking in your daily diet and to also quickly give your body what it needs to maximize the recovery response after a workout," Sumbal says.

One catch: Drinks from smoothie shops often contain more calories and sugar than you'd imagine. Credit added sugars, which can pile on the empty carbohydrates fast.

That said, it&rsquos easy to make healthy, protein-fortified smoothies if you opt for the DIY approach. Of course, you'll still need to watch portions and limit added sugars from sweeteners like honey.

So how should you make a healthy, protein-packed smoothie? Start by using roughly one cup of fruit per smoothie. Then, you'll also want to measure out a single serving of high-fat additions like nut butters, chia seeds, and avocados, because these can easily make you consume more calories overall. Finally, try adding a handful of greens, such as kale or spinach, is a great way to boost antioxidant and fiber intake. As a bonus, they bulk up beverages to make you feel fuller for longer.

Made correctly, smoothies can be a great start to your day, and the flavor possibilities are endless. Try one of these 22 protein-rich mash-ups that are packed with nut butters, greens, and fiber to satisfy your taste buds and stomach. For each recipe, place the ingredients in the order listed and blend until smooth.


The Recipes

1. Turmeric-Ginger Energy Shots

With turmeric, lemon, fresh ginger and pepper to help your system absorb the nutrients, it&rsquos designed to boost both your energy levels and your immune system. Turmeric is supposed to have anti-inflammatory properties, ginger is supposed to lower blood pressure, and cinnamon or cardamom is supposed to improve your circulation.

2. Breakfast Energy Smoothie

Berries, orange juice, and yogurt are a great way to start the day. The frozen berries and orange juice provide some fruit sugars for energy, and the yogurt has some fats and proteins. I love Dreaming Cow Grass Fed Yogurt in Plain if you can find it in your area. I&rsquove found it in stores like Fresh Market and Whole Foods.

3. Layered Mixed-Berry Green Power Smoothie

A beautiful, thick smoothie with all kinds of fruits and veggies, with vanilla protein powder to give you stamina. If you don&rsquot have protein power or prefer not to use it, almond butter makes a great substitute.

4. Cherry Lemonade Energy Boost

Tastes like cherry lemonade, but with green tea (it&rsquos best if you brew your own rather than use a bottled version) and coconut water to boost your energy level. I really like this drink because it calls for seltzer water and the carbonation makes the drink more refreshing.

5. Plain Apple Cider Vinegar Drink

Made with organic, raw apple cider, ginger, spices, honey and hot water. There are a lot of other supposed benefits to drinking apple cider vinegar, although I&rsquom not sure they&rsquove been tested in medical studies. The ginger can help with both digestion and circulation.

6. Electrolyte Energy Drink

Several variations, with lemon juice, lime juice, and coconut water. One variation on this one adds some sea salt. We mostly hear about too much salt being bad for you, but too little is bad, too. If you sweat a lot, you may need to replenish your salt as well as your fluids.

7. Super Easy All Natural Booster

This homemade energy drink has matcha green tea powder, Stevia and optional lime juice. This one you could just make in a Blender Bottle, like I was talking about above.

8. Super Energy Drink

Blends an orange with coconut milk, honey, yogurt, and flaxseed. That gives you both energy and stamina, and the flaxseed provides some Omega 3 fatty acids, which are good for you.

9. Grizzly Bears Energy Beverage

Lemon, honey, and no refined sugar. The salt and baking soda will help you rehydrate, and the honey will raise your energy levels.

10. Cocoa Banana Milkshake

Chocolate, ripe banana, milk and a little bit of sugar. It&rsquos practically a chocolate banana milkshake, but the banana and chocolate both have some minerals you can lose through exercise, and the milk will give you stamina.

You can add some ground cardamom cinnamon to this one for a wonderful touch of spice.

11. Strawberry Boost

Strawberries, peaches, honey, with non-fat dry milk powder. If you don&rsquot want to use milk powder, you could replace that with yogurt.

12. Green Tea Sports Drink

Made with green tea and flavored teas, with honey and coconut water. This sports drink has nutrients and some caffeine, and you drink it chilled.

13. Gatorade Substitute

This comes close to the exact ratio of ingredients that makes Gatorade an effective sports drink. Remember what I was saying about salt in No. 6? This one has it, too, and it&rsquos a good way to replenish that lost salt.

21 delicious, nutritious healthy smoothie recipes to start off your morning right. Plenty of high protein and vegan options for breakfasts or snacks!

How are you on your smoothie game? Lately there’s been a fruit overload happening in my fridge. They literally just keep climbing into my grocery basket I’ve had no other choice than to make a smoothie nearly every day.

No regrets, of course. Although I do admit that I need so many more healthy smoothie recipes on AK. I’ll get to that right away.

I figured since I’ve been loving smoothies so much, you might enjoy them too. It’s a great way to use up farmer’s market fruit, plus they’re a healthy breakfast or snack option to provide you with energy and important nutrients.

Below you’ll find some of my favorites! Please note that they are properly numbered from left to right as shown in the picture. So if you see one you like, you can find it below.

Energy Shake - Recipes

Sip your way to healthy satisfaction.

One of the most common questions I get as a semi-committed raw foodist is, Aren’t you starving with just fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds? Aren’t you tired all the time? The answer is a resounding no. I have far more energy when I’m eating raw vegan — well, vegan except for honey — and I feel satisfied after my meals, but in a lighter way. I don’t get “food babies” or that post-meal exhaustion from the body’s struggle to digest a heavy meal. The trick is knowing the foods and the combinations of foods that give you the right nutrients to keep you going all day long: greens, berries, citrus, nuts, oats, honey, coconut milk, and bananas are my go-to ingredients.

Honey appears in almost all of these smoothies, and not only for taste. Honey has been a trusted energy-boosting athletic supplement for centuries and across many cultures.

I also like to have some fancy secret weapons in my energy arsenal like matcha (a green tea powder full of antioxidants), powdered macca root (a superfood known for its energizing qualities), lucuma (another superfood that tastes amazingly like ice cream), and guarana powder (known for its powerful caffeine kick). If you don’t have them on hand, that’s completely fine.

The following recipes are still delicious and energizing without these additional boosts. You probably have ingredients in your kitchen cabinet to give your drink an energy boost, too.For instance, some raw foodies find that a pinch of cayenne or chili powder gives them a lift, warms up the body (especially during the cooler months), and supports the immune system all year round.

It also boosts your metabolism, improves circulation, reduces pain, and is a powerful source of vitamins and minerals. Nothing gets you going like a little kick of cayenne.

As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so every morning I start the day off with a delicious smoothie. They’re so easy to make and clean up after — just pour in a cup, rinse out your blender, and go.

Mulberry, Lavender, and Kale Smoothie

This smoothie features an all-star cast of superfood sensations. Bananas are good sources of fiber, slow-burning carbohydrates to balance energy throughout the day, and heart-healthy sterols. They are surprisingly nutritious, containing vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, potassium, biotin, copper and pectins. They also contain fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) which are a source of food for the friendly bacteria in the human digestive system, and a well-functioning system keeps your energy in-balance.

Mulberries are a respectable source of antioxidants and polyphenols, not to mention vitamin A, B6, B12, C, E, K, riboflavin, folate, calcium and other nutrients that keep your body ticking.

Oats are an excellent source of B vitamins and magnesium. And both oats and cashews are loaded with protein and fiber which keeps your energy up and your digestive system in check. Cashews are also good source of antioxidants and dietary trace minerals such as manganese and copper.

Banana, Almond Milk, and Matcha Energizing Smoothie

Romaine is not the boring ingredient many salad naysayers make it out to be. It contains many vitamins and nutrients including folate, which plays a role in energy and mood regulation.

Honey is a source of complex carbohydrates, fructose, glucose, and small amounts of sucrose, vitamins and minerals.

Almonds are highly nutritious, containing vitamins and essential minerals. They are also a rich source of dietary fiber and complex carbohydrates, which help to sustain energy throughout the day.
