You can sweeten anyway you like: stevia, monk fruit, xylitol, maple syrup, or raw honey. The maple syrup and honey would increase the amount of sugar and carbs on this and it would not be a keto recipe anymore.
You have to use gelatin in order to get the consistency correct. A bone broth or collagen protein will make this more like a smoothie instead. You need the gelatin to make this gelatinous. I use this brand of gelatin because it is pastured-raised without pesticides or chemicals. This is not like a thick Greek yogurt style but rather a very ‘fluffy’ type pudding.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a low-carb, ketogenic style recipe that is loaded with collagen protein that helps improve your skin, hair, nails, joints and intestinal membrane. Grass-fed beef gelatin or collagen protein is an outstanding protein source for anyone looking to reduce the effects of aging, improve their beauty characteristics, strengthen their joints and heal leaky gut syndrome.
Coconut milk provides a great dose of anti-inflammatory medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that are easily metabolized by the body and used to burn fat. Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids which are classified as vitamin P.
The combination of vitamin C and vitamin P helps to improve deep capillary permeability, which brings more oxygen to the tissues of the body. This improves energy production and detoxification.
I like to use lemon or vanilla flavored Sweet Leaf stevia to enhance those two flavors in this recipe. This is great as a breakfast, a snack or dessert. Try this one out and let us know what you think in the comments box below.
