COCONUT “KETO” PROTEIN SHAKE

Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred fuel source.  Once you deplete glycogen (sugar) storage, the body will use fat for energy.  At this point the body is in fat-burn mode!  For more on ketosis, check out http://tinyurl.com/3m94xv

Coconut Keto Protein Shake:

Makes 1 – 20 oz. Shake

2 Green Tea Bags

4 oz Water (boiling)

16 0z Water

1 Tbls Coconut Oil

1 Scoop Protein Powder (plain/vanilla)

Pinch Himalayan Sea Salt

1/8 tsp Stevia (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a mug, brew green tea with 4 oz. boiling water.  Only brew green tea for 60-90 seconds, otherwise it will become bitter…if you want to brew it longer and you like bitterness you aren’t going to hurt my feelings 🙂
  2. Add the salt, stevia, and coconut oil.  Stir to combine/melt.
  3. In a 20+ oz protein shaker, add 16 oz. water and protein powder.
  4. Close lid. Shake. Enjoy

<Note: the coconut oil will eventually solidify, but it will be okay…actually it will be delicious>

Be well,

-Max
