If you read my last post, Vegan Keto: What I Eat In A Day, you probably saw me mention Vega protein shakes. They are my go-to for breakfast, lunch, and even dinner when my family decides it's a free-for-all. I love Vega products and purchase the Vega Essentials Vanilla protein powder through my Amazon Prime account or at my local Target store. This vanilla keto protein shake is a staple that I keep in rotation throughout the week to keep my macros in check, my tummy full, and my energy on point!
Because this is a base recipe, you can add whatever keto fixin's you want! You probably noticed in the picture above that my shake is sending you some serious green smoothie vibes. That's because I threw in a scoop of Essential 10 Supergreens powder by Designer Proteins for a boost of fiber and micronutrients! Topped with unsweetened shredded coconut and cocao nibs and you have yourself a delicious and nutritious shake that clocks in at less than 3g net carbs.
- 12oz non-dairy beverage of your choice (I love Ripple Milk, Unsweetened Original)
- 1 scoop low carb vanilla protein powder, like Vega Essentials
Net Carbs: 0g
One thing I love since starting on my keto journey is that I'm not scared of fats anymore, which is why I'm not worried adding MCT oil, hemp hearts, or even nut butters to my shake. I want those delicous fats and calories!
- MCT oil
- Essential 10 Supergreens
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Nutiva Organic Coconut Manna
- Nut butters
- Extracts (almond, mint, maple, etc..)
- Cold brew coffee
- Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts
The great thing about this base recipe is that it starts off at ZERO net carbs. That means you have some wiggle room to include some delicious keto-friendly add-ins, like nut butters and berries.
Even after my MCT oil and cold brew coffee, I'm still at zero net carbs. This helps me save my carbs for dinner! Want to know why? Check out my post Vegan Keto: What I Eat In A Day!
