You know those chocolate covered berries you find in those specialty candy stores, or the ones that they serve up to you when you go out for a romantic date at a fondue joint? This is a smoothie that will bring memories back to you with a cooling and refreshing vibe running through it.
We all need a break from the ordinary, piping hot ketoproof coffee every once in a while (especially with the weather lately in Florida). Instead of getting your MCT Oil in Ketoproof Coffee, why not change it up a little and grab some MCTs from a smoothie?
You can use almond milk or any other type of milk (even heavy cream if you want), but I prefer coconut milk. It’s slightly thick, it’s delicious, and it’s just the perfect consistency for the final shake. You can drink it for breakfast, or it can be used as a mid-morning snack, after work/school relaxation shake, or a pre-workout supplement.
So what’s your favorite shake to make? Let us know in the comments below!
Yields 1 Serving of Blackberry Chocolate Shake

- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- ¼ cup blackberries
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1. Add 7 ice cubes to your blender. I’m using a Ninja Blender with the Mini Ninja attachment.
3. Add 1-2 tbsp. MCT Oil. This depends on how much your stomach can handle – I personally use 2 tbsp.
4. Blend it all up using the blend setting. Let it run for around 1-2 minutes until everything is combined well.
