You are going to love this Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake, that’s made with healthy ingredients without spiking your blood sugar. It’s dairy free and paleo, with 6 grams of net carb!

Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake

MMMM MILKSHAKE. It’s one of those incredibly indulgent treats that I remember so fondly and miss so much ever since removing most dairy into my diet. While milkshakes are super delicious and wonderful, they are one of the popular desserts with the highest sugar content.

However, I’m always striving to healthify my favorite sweets and recreate them with cleaner and low carb substitutes, and I’m just obsessed with how this Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake turned out!

Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake Recipe

This keto mocha milkshake doesn’t contain any dairy or ice cream, but you’ll never guess by the amazingly thick and smooth texture. This creaminess comes from a combination of coconut milk, almond milk, and avocado, and thickened even more by blended ice cubes.

Also, the flavor from the mixture of cocoa powder and instant coffee is just divine with a touch of vanilla and sea salt. It’s my new favorite indulgence and, best of all, I don’t get a headache and feel crappy afterwards!

What Makes It Bulletproof?

The term “bulletproof” came from the popular bulletproof coffee that’s been trending in the low carb world. Instead of starting the day with high sugar foods that’ll have you suffering a blood sugar crash with a headache and that “hangry” feeling an hour later, a bulletproof drink is full of high quality fats that’ll give you sustained energy while keeping your mind focused.

The fat is from a saturated fat source like MCT oil, butter, and/or ghee, allowing your body to convert it to ketones, which your body uses much more efficiently than carbs and sugar. You are better able to burn body fat, your brain will stay much more focused, and you’ll be satiated without hunger pains for so much longer!

I also like to add grass fed collagen for that extra boost of protein and amazing nutrients it offers.

Quality Matters

Just like always, the quality of the ingredients is one of the important parts of any recipe or food. There are so many MCT oil and collagen brands out there with questionable ingredients from unclear sources and you definitely want to avoid those.

One of my favorite brands for these kinds of supplements that’s always crystal clear about where they source their ingredients and how they are farmed is Perfect Supplements. I’ve used many of their products and they are so effective, and I love that I don’t have to worry about and research their ingredients every time I purchase from them.

  • Perfect MCT Oil: There are many MCT oils are sourced from unsustainable palm oil or soy-based hexane, or contain genetically modified ingredients. Perfect MCT Oil is one of the cleanest and purest I’ve seen, and contains 100% C8 (caprylic acid) and C10 (capris acid). It has been batch tested to ensure that it contains nothing but coconuts. Plus, you really can’t taste it at all and it always makes my drinks extra frothy!
  • Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen: One of the highest quality and most affordable collagens on the market! This one is grass fed, dissolves well in both cold and hot liquids, and you can’t taste it. They’ve tested it to ensure that there are no pesticides or hormones, and also that it’s free of glyphosates. Collagen is awesome because it’s an absorbable source of protein, improves the quality and strength of hair, skin and nails, supports joint health, and also improves gut function! I take this in my matcha every morning, and keep the single-serving packets around for travel and on-the-go!

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread

This super easy and delicious paleo keto bread is made with all clean ingredients with only 2 grams of net carbs! Such a healthy way to enjoy bread without spiking up your blood sugar.

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love my toasts in all forms, especially avocado toasts. I usually just buy gluten free bread because they are easy and convenient, but lately, I’ve been sticking to a lower carb diet because I feel so much better that way. So, in order to keep my toast habit going, I decided to make my own paleo keto bread, and I’ve been loving it!

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread Recipe

This paleo keto bread loaf recipe is so easy and so fluffy. The prep time is so quick, because all you have to do is mix the ingredients together before pouring the batter into the baking pan before throwing it in the oven.

The base is made with low carb almond flour, and I just love how the texture is so much like actual bread! It’ll definitely fulfill your bread cravings without spiking up your blood sugar, whether you eat it alone or top it with your favorite spread and/or toppings.

Using the Correct Psyllium Husk

This paleo keto bread recipe uses psyllium husk powder to help with the bread-y texture. It’s actually quite easy to find these days, especially if you search online. However, not all psyllium husk powders are the same. Some of them, when baked, actually imparts a bluish-purple color to the baked good which can be quite off-putting.

I found that this psyllium husk powder is high quality, works well, and doesn’t change the color of my bread, and I’ve baked with it several times now. However, if you have another brand already on hand and the purple color doesn’t bother you, feel free to use it in this recipe because it won’t affect the flavor at all!

What to Expect With This Paleo Keto Bread

Just like most grain free breads, this bread will not rise like a regular, flour bread. Yes, it will rise some, but don’t expect it to double in size. Feel free to double the recipe and use the same sized pan if you want a true loaf-sized bread. You may need to adjust the baking time accordingly.

Also, this bread will be light and airy, and not hardy and crusty. I love toasting each slice before serving to give it a little more texture, then topping with mashed avocados or cream cheese.

It’s such a great way to enjoy bread on a low carb diet, so I hope you enjoy!

Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins (Paleo, Grain Free)

These paleo and keto lemon blueberry muffins are moist and flavorful, and they are a delicious way to start the morning! Perfect for when you are on the go.

Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon and blueberry are my favorite combination of flavors when the weather warms up. There’s honestly nothing better than the tartness and sweetness of these two fruits, and they are a match made in heaven!

These days, I haven’t been able to have much sugar. I have a slight carbohydrate intolerance, and eating too much sugar or carbs will make me congested and sneezy. It’s actually quite annoying, but I’ve been experimenting with low carb and keto recipes and desserts, and I’ve been loving them because they don’t bother me at all!

Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins Recipe

My latest creation in the kitchen is this keto lemon blueberry muffin, and I’m obsessed! It’s so easy, paleo and gluten free, and I can enjoy it with any kind of side effects or sugar crash. And best of all, it takes less than 30 minutes to make, and you’ll have a delicious breakfast or snack that’s great on-the-go for the rest of the week!

Coconut Flour Muffins

These low carb and keto lemon blueberry muffins are made with coconut flour. Every time I use coconut flour in baking recipes, I get messages from my readers concerned about the dryness of baked good because coconut flour is quite absorbent of any kind of liquid it’s mixed with.

But do not worry! These muffins are actually incredibly moist and flavorful, and they won’t have a dense texture either. However, since coconut flour acts very differently compared to other paleo and low carb flours, I would not recommend substituting it with anything else.

And if you or your family member has a nut allergy, these are nut free so perfectly safe for consumption!

Keto Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Not Keto?

If you aren’t on a keto or low carb diet, or if you have reactions to sugar alcohols, then you can just substitute Swerve in this recipe with coconut sugar (for paleo) or just regular sugar. I know there are some people who get digestive issues or headaches with zero carb sweeteners, so I completely understand.

Hope you enjoy these paleo and keto lemon blueberry muffins. I really enjoyed them with my morning coffee or matcha latte, and they are extra delicious toasted with a slather of ghee or butter!
