All health-conscious people stay away from junk food such as processed meat, sugars, etc. In fact, many people even decide to go one step further and follow a specific diet plan. For decades, many great minds in the world of medicine have been trying to find the answer to the question “what is the best diet”. Unfortunately, there’s no consensus among physicians about which diet path you should follow. The good news, however, is that there are plenty of super healthy diets you can choose from – the Atkins diet, Keto, vegan diet, etc.
About LCHF Coconut Milkshake
Here’s a beverage that can be used during both the Keto and the Atkins diet. What makes this drink great is that it contains a very low amount of carbs, while having a pretty high amount of both protein and healthy fats. In fact, this is a type of milkshake, which would be certainly recommended by any proponent of the LCHF (low carb high fat) lifestyle.
Speaking of LCHF diets such as the Keto diet or the Atkins, this regime is officially recommended by the Swedish ministry of health. In fact, Sweden has become the first country on the planet to promote this diet plan. However, many other countries are expected to follow.
The reason is that LCHF diets really work. In fact, not only are Swedes among the least obese people in the world, they’re also unlikely to have coronary problems, issues with kidneys, diabetes. Actually, it seems that this diet regime has a lot of benefits and can prevent a wide range of diseases.
LCHF coconut milkshake seems as a perfect way to get introduced to the world of low-carb high-fat diets. However, this drink is also compatible with other diets as well, including the Paleo diet. The ingredients also make it a great choice for vegans. Speaking of the ingredients, here they are!
- 4 oz coconut cream (full fat)
- 2 tablespoon melted coconut butter
- 1/2 tbsp almond butter
- 6 oz coconut drinking milk (unsweetened)
- 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
- Dash of cinnamon powder
How to Make LCHF Coconut Milkshake?
Before making the milkshake, it would be great if you could leave the coconut cream in the freezer for 45 minutes. By freezing it, you will be able to make a milkshake, instead of a regular smoothie. So, once the coconut cream is in solid state, put it in the blender jar, together with the rest of the ingredients.
You could only leave cinnamon for later, that is, to use it as garnish. However, if you have a sweet tooth, put a pinch of cinnamon in the blender as it will give the milkshake some sweetness. Alternatively, you can add stevia to make it even tastier.
Ifyou have a high-speed centrifugal blender, you won’t need to let it work for a long time. In that case, the milkshake should be done is just a couple seconds. On the other hand, if you’re using a masticating or some other type of slow-speed juicer, you will need to let it blend for at least a minute.
What Kind of Blender to Use for Making this Drink?
As all of the ingredients are rather soft and creamy, you can make this milkshake with almost any blender. Furthermore, you can even use a shaker to make this drink. However, we advise against it, as that way you would need to spend a lot of time, especially if you want to get a creamy, homogenous milkshake.
