Tip: If you use light coconut milk that comes in a carton instead of canned, I suggest adding 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin coconut oil or coconut butter to add fat.

Dr Jockers Comments:
This recipe is full of healthy medium-chain fatty acids that help to produce ketones and move our body into a state of fat-adaption where we are burning fat as our primary fuel. These MCT’s also help to improve digestive function, thyroid function, stabilize blood sugar levels and balance overall hormones.
Cinnamon helps to stabilize blood sugar. Stable blood sugar is very important for good energy and a fat burning metabolism. Cayenne helps to stimulate metabolism and improves fat burning. Berries such as raspberries and strawberries are low-glycemic and high in anti-oxidants.
Use a high quality protein such as bone broth protein which is rich in branched chain amino acids that support muscle tissue and increase our fat burning capabilities. If you are whey sensitive than I would suggest using a high quality, pure vegan protein.
I find that the berries and the protein powder provide plenty of great flavor and no stevia is necessary. Try this recipe yourself and let us know how you like it in the comments box below!
