This is one of my absolute favs!  Truth be known, you can do this with either chocolate or vanilla as a base.  If you want to make this a full meal you can use 2 scoops of the Keto Meal Balanced Shake, use full fat coconut milk and add cacao nibs to the base.  And as always, use organic ingredients when you can ☺

Cherry Vanilla Keto Smoothie

Cherry Vanilla Keto Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Keto Meal Balanced Shake
  • 2 TBSP pistachios
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup frozen cherries
  • 2 TBSP coco whip
  • 1 TSP cacao nibs

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender except the coco whip and cacao nibs—see below. 
  • Place 2  TBSP on sides and top of the glass, then garnish with 1 TBSP cacao nibs. Enjoy!

    TIP: if you want this smoothie to be thicker add some plain ice and/or reduce the amount of almond milk.

Coco Whip Directions:

  • Chill a can of coconut cream or coconut milk in the fridge ideally overnight.
  • Scoop out the cream from the top, place in a mixing bowl, whip with a hand mixer on high until “whip cream” is formed.

    Tip: Can be stored in the fridge for several days.
