Mega Mocha Bulletproof Smoothie (Not Fasting Friendly)

edited August 2013 in Recipes

An amazingly delicious twist on a mocha or mocha protein shake. I've been doing this on days that I don't want to fast (usually workout days). Most eps! you can also freeze this and it makes a really good dessert.


 


16 oz Upgraded Coffee


2 tbsp Grass-Fed Butter 


2 tbsp MCT Oil


1 tbsp Upgraded Collagen Protein


1-2 Raw Pastured Egg Yolks


1/2-1 Avocado


1-2 tbsp Upgraded Chocolate Powder


1/2 tsp Cinnamon


1/2 tsp Upgraded Vanilla


Xylitol, Erythritol or Stevia to taste (I usually do 2-3 tsp xylitol per tbsp chocolate)


Pinch of Pink Salt


 


Brew your coffee.


Add butter, mct oil, collagen powder, egg yolk(s), chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, avocado, salt and sweetener to your blender.


pour in coffee and blend for about 10 seconds or until all is lookin nice n smooth.


 


- I like to make this and add a few chopped macadamia nuts then freeze it. Or you could un-bulletproof it even more and add some almond butter, maybe some banana too. Freeze it for a carb day treat. Add some homemade coconut milk to the frozen mocha and blend it for a crazy good ice blended mocha.  


 


-The only downsides to this recipe are the oxidized egg yolks (from blending) and possibly higher carb and protein content for anyone trying to stay in deep ketosis. However, the heavy fat load should help manage the carbs from the avo and chocolate in most people and not disrupt ketosis. You can skip the eggs if needed. Or try and slowly pulse until smooth. You can also use cold coffee to help reduce the oxidization in the eggs. Tweak this recipe all you want!
