This post is about my experience with a keto diet, and how I have successfully been able to lose weight while maintaining a healthy amount of fat. I realized I was getting a little bit tired of eating the same types of foods day in and day out, and I wanted to try something new. I had only tried the keto diet a couple times before, so I didn’t really know what to expect. I had a couple of questions that I needed to answer, which I hope to answer in this post.
“I was running late today and almost skipped breakfast. But I remembered I had a few gummy bears in the pantry, so I thought, ‘Why not?’ After all, I’ve got a pretty good track record with these things. I’d been following the keto diet for months, and I was feeling great. I’d dropped some weight, which I was very happy about. But I was still hungry. I was starting to doubt I would ever get to that next level of keto-adapted bliss where I could eat anything I wanted and still lose weight. I had to find a way to make eating less and exercising more feel like a vacation. Then it hit me. A chocolate shake.” “I blended some unflavored
Have a chocolate craving?
What if I told ya that you can make an insanely rich and creamy thick keto bulletproof chocolate shake for breakfast (or any time of the day) that’s both low carb and dairy-free?! Yep, this chocolate shake hits all those check marks, but, more importantly, it tastes sinfully delish. Plus, if you’re trying to get in your healthy fat intake, this is a yummy way to accomplish that!
When you hear the secret ingredient that makes it so creamy, don’t stop reading!
I blended this shake using half an avocado! Yep. The combination of avocado and full-fat canned coconut milk makes this milkshake creamy dreamy, filling, and energy-boosting to keep ya going throughout the day! Also, since we’re such big fans of Dave Asprey, and his popular bulletproof coffee, I added some brain power boosting MCT oil to the shake as well.
MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) Oil and Coconut Oil are very similar, however, MCT oil is more concentrated. For instance, coconut oil is 55% MCTs, while MCT oil is 100% of MCTs. Just be careful with MCT oil and start with a teaspoon at a time, as some people find it upsets their stomach at first.
I’m using Swerve granular as a sweetener here, and it turned out yummy. I’d encourage you to use your favorite sweetener, and add more or less according to taste. Cocoa powder can be a tad bitter, so the best way is to taste a little after blending.
Whip it up and pour it in a glass to enjoy!
This idea could not be easier! It’s simple throwing ingredients in a blender and blending them with ice cubes. In just a minute or so, you’ll end up with a perfectly chilled chocolate shake to enjoy. I love that the texture is NOT oily at all with the MCT oil, but it’s super fluffy and thick.

Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!
Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Swerve) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we’ve subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are 4g, which is much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.
Um…hello…This is so good!
I have to say I was intrigued and skeptical of how great a bulletproof chocolate milkshake would taste. This actually goes above and beyond my expectations, and I know you’ll love this, too! The taste and thick texture are super satisfying, especially if you love dark chocolate. Plus, coconut milk is so YUMMY in this shake. I can’t wait to have some of the leftovers from the remaining milk in my coffee tomorrow!
