It can often be hard to find shake recipes that are also keto-friendly, since fruits are such a popular smoothie ingredient and can be too high in carbs to stay in ketosis. But If you’re currently following a keto dietary plan, or planning to start one soon, I have the most indulgent yet healthy, perfectly-balanced keto shake for you!
This Keto Collagen Protein Shake tastes like a dessert but has the right amount of fat, protein and carbs to fit in with your keto goals. Plus, if you aren’t on the ketogenic diet, you can still thoroughly enjoy this yummy recipe, as it’s a great one to have on hand for times when you run out of fruit!
Made with your choice of 310 Shake, coconut milk ice cubes, unsweetened almond milk, 310 Collagen, 310 MCT Oil, almond butter, sea salt, and cacao nibs, this creamy shake is packed with 32.5g of high-quality protein and will keep you satiated for hours. Plus, you can even change up the flavor of this shake to suit your personal taste preferences!
Some days, I like adding 310 Salted Caramel to this recipe, to mimic a salted caramel cookie, and other days, I enjoy adding 310 Chocolate to fulfill my intense chocolate cravings. With a variety of 310 Shake flavors, you can recreate your favorite desserts in an incredibly nutritious way.
Let’s go over the stand-out benefits of some of the star ingredients in this shake before we give you the full recipe, below!
Balanced Nutrients & Great Taste: 310 Shakes
The first ingredient in this Keto Collagen Smoothie, as mentioned previously, is your choice of 310 Shake! Choose from amazing flavors like mocha or salted caramel, or classic ones like vanilla or chocolate, depending on your mood. Each shake is packed with essential nutrients to fuel your body and mind, and increase feelings of fullness. They’re also super-yummy and free from added sugar and artificial sweeteners; Instead, they’re sweetened with plant-based Stevia.
Along with an impressive Tri-Plex blend of plant-based proteins to help nourish your body and reach your weight loss goals, 310 Shakes are also incredibly well-balanced to deliver a wholesome meal in every scoop! Each serving contains 15g of plant-based proteins including pea, brown rice and hemp, 5g of dietary fiber, and even probiotics to support a healthy gut and optimal digestion. There’s also 20 essential vitamins and minerals included in every shake serving to help you meet the daily recommended intake for these important nutrients, and feel your best!
Energizing Healthy Fats: MCT Oil
If you’re following a keto dietary plan, you probably already know that MCT Oil is a staple pantry item! Of course, it can also be enjoyed by anyone and everyone, but it’s particularly helpful for those on keto!
This super-nutritious oil not only adds a nice silkiness to your shakes, but it’s also a source of instant energy for both your brain and body. MCT Oil contains medium chain triglycerides (or MCTs), that help keep you full and are quickly converted into energy, so you can power through your day.
I like using 310 MCT Oil because it’s purely derived from quality coconut oil and not diluted with other types of oils. It’s also very convenient, with only a light, mild coconut taste, making it easy to add into your coffee or smoothies whenever you need an extra boost of energy!
Essential Daily Protein: Collagen
The final ingredient that I’m going to highlight in this recipe is a protein called collagen! You may have heard of collagen in skincare products or taken as supplements, as it continues to rise in popularity, and for good reason! Collagen exists naturally in your body, essentially acting as the “glue” for your bones, ligaments, skin, hair, and nails, so it’s no wonder that everyone is talking about it!
The body starts to produce less and less collagen with age, starting around mid-twenties. So, it’s important to incorporate this protein into your diet to help replenish it. On that note, you can easily add 310 Collagen into your shakes for a boost of this vital protein! It’s flavorless, so you won’t even know it’s there, yet it provides extra satiety and supports a healthy, youthful body and appearance as you age!
