Keto Chocolate Coconut Milkshake
Yield 2 Servings
- 2 cups full-fat coconut milk, divided
- 2 tablespoons coconut almond butter or nut butter of choice
- 2 scoops sugar-free protein powder (we like collagen protein)
- 1 dropperful vanilla-flavored liquid stevia
- ¼ cup raw cacao nibs or sugar-free chocolate chips
Step #1: Pour 1 cup of the coconut milk into an ice cube tray and freeze for at least 2 hours, or until completely frozen.
Step #2: Place the remaining 1 cup of coconut milk, the almond butter, protein powder, and stevia in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
Step #3: Add the coconut milk ice cubes to the blender and blend just until the mixture is smooth and no ice chunks remain (don’t blend it too much, or the ice will begin to melt and you’ll lose that thick milkshake-like consistency).
Step #4: Add the cacao nibs and pulse just until they are evenly distributed and flecked throughout the milkshake but not fully incorporated.
Step #5: Transfer to a serving glass or glasses and serve immediately.

Feel free to use any sweetener that you like, but but to keep it keto you will need to stick with monk fruit, erythritol, xylitol or stevia. If you use raw honey, coconut sugar or maple syrup the sugar content in one of those sweeteners would make it higher carb.
If you would like a special discount on the monk fruit that I use, you can find it through Lakanto here and put in the coupon code Jockers for 20% off of your purchase. This discount sure beats buying these products at the health food store or on Amazon. This company has many fantastic keto approved products so try them out!
We used coconut almond butter for this recipe, but you can use almond butter, cashew butter, macadamia nut butter or even a high quality organic peanut butter if you really wanted too (although peanut butter is more inflammatory than other nut butters).
The key thing in order to make this milkshake so delicious, thick, and creamy is to freeze half of the milk beforehand and blend right before consuming. You can add in more collagen protein through bone broth collagen protein which would both be great choices.
Dr Jockers Comments
I have always loved the classic milkshake texture and flavor. This recipe really provides that same incredible goodness but in a ketogenic form that helps you burn fat, have more energy and think more clearly!!
Coconut is one of the healthiest fats as it is rich in medium chain fats that are easier for the body to convert into ketones to fuel cellular energy. Coconut fats are also very stable and resist oxidation unlike many other plant based fats.
Raw cacao adds polyphenol antioxidants that reduce inflammation and compounds such as theobromine and PEA’s that increase circulation to the brain and support dopamine and serotonin production for a positive mood and mental focus!
You can use any high quality protein powder you like, or completely omit the protein powder if you want. I like getting more collagen protein into my body to support my joints, skin and gut lining so I love our new organic collagen protein and keto protein powders you can find on our store here
