Berry shakes and smoothies are delicious on hot summer days. My mom used to make strawberry milkshake for me when I was a kid. She only used two ingredients, strawberries from our garden and whole milk from a local farmer. To make this shake keto-friendly, I used coconut milk and added some MCT oil which will increase the fat-burning potential of a keto diet. Hope you like it as much as I do :-)

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

We are allergic to all forms of coconut. What can we use as a replacement. Thank you.

Heavy whipping cream mixed with water or more almond milk would be a great replacement. I would even add an egg yolk (for added fats and micronutrients) 😊

I hate to be a party pooper but this recipe is almost certainly knocking you out of ketosis. Way too many carbs for ingesting in one sitting. I say this only because you and many others looking to give this a try have autoimmune diseases which are not fun. I hope the diet is working well to alleviate that but you may find more relief if you don't consume carbs in this way. Keto is an all or nothing diet.

Hi Max, it may be too many carbs for you but what works for one does not work for someone else. Berries don't kick you out of ketosis - what matters is carbs per serving and in that case a serving of cauliflower mash would be just as bad as berries. 6 grams of carbs per serving is not too many unless you follow a zero carb approach aiming for high ketone levels - which is something most people don't follow and don't need to follow.

What is the difference between melted extra virgin, unrefined coconut oil and MCT oil in terms of benefits?

Reply

In terms of benefits (other than practical reasons and the fact that coconut oil solidifies), here's a good post to explain what MCTs are and how they are different from virgin coconut oil: Complete Guide to Bulletproof Coffee

I tried with coconut oil! It feels like little flakes when mix with the ice! Love it!

Great recipe, but I can't find how many calories in a serving?

Reply

Hi David, calories are listed as "kcal" - I hope this helps!

OMG this is so good! Thanks for sharing!

This is wonderfull! I used HWC instead of coconut milk, and 1 1/2 tbsp of cream cheese like another commenter suggested instead of mct or coconut oil (because I didn’t have any). I had to add a little more sweetener because of the cream cheese, but it was perfect!! Thank you!

This was so scrumptious! I used blueberries in lieu of strawberries the first go around and the shake was sweet and satifying. I made with strawberries too -- delicious too. Both instance, I added chia seeds to the shakes for added thickness.
Wonderful recipe! Thank you!!!

Yummy, Martina!
Thanks for keeping my epileptic child happy while on such a strict diet. 😊

Thank you for your kind words, Erica!

If I use almond milk instead of water do I have to change the nutritional values/macros? If so, how? Ditto the optional extras? Thanks.
I have your app and notice some recipes also have optional extra ingredients listed on them, which I presume aren't calculated into the nutritional value/macros? How can I work them out?
Thanks!

Hi Vicky, the recipe uses almond milk (the first ingredient listed is always the one used to calculate the nutrition facts). Even if you skip the almond milk, the change will be insignificant (3/4 cup almond milk contains 0.7 g net carbs and 25 calories). If you use all the optional extras and use this meal in our App in the Planner, then it's better if you count them in by "cloning" the existing blog meals and adding the extras. To do that, tap on the recipe listed in Custom Meals > Blog Meals and tap "clone" (top right). Then you can add any optional ingredients to your newly created custom meal. I hope this helps!

Hi. Is it ok to add a scoop of paleo egg protein?

Reply

Yes, you can add protein powder (will help with satiety).

What is egg protein and where can I get it?

I don't have mct. Is there any alternative I can use?

Reply

Yes, you can skip it or use macadamia nut oil instead.

Reply

I didn't have the oil on hand but i put about 1-1/2 tablespoons of creamcheese in it! Delish! More like a strawberry cheesecake shake!

Reply

That sounds delicious, thank you!

Reply

You rock! Tasted amazing with cream cheese. Thank you!

I have no idea why I was skeptical about this recipe! It is seriously delicious, I could drink these all day long! 😄

Reply

Thank you Natasha!

Trying this in the morning where do I get chia seeds I have flax seeds will that work and do you think it will taste good or should I just leave it out

Reply

Hi Misty, it's ok to leave it out - or you can use a tablespoon of ground flax if you prefer it creamier 😊 I get chia seeds on Amazon (see the link in ingredients).

Reply

I made it this morning using frozen strawberries-it was perfect for a warm morning.  Thanks for posting this!  Loved it and will be making this for my kids. Can I mix the MCT oil with any shake? or do I use it as supplement? Thanks!

Reply

Hi Maggie, glad you liked it! I add a tablespoon of MCT oil in most of my smoothies - e.g. vanilla, chocolate that are also on my blog. I'd only use a tablespoon just to avoid stomach issues which may happen with too much of it.

Reply

  which is better to soak the chia seeds first or keep them dry? I love all of your recipes , Thank you!

Reply

Thank you! If you soak them first, the texture may be smoother but you can do either 😊

Reply

Made it love it will make it again and again!! 😊 My calorie limit is quite low even on keto but I don't feel hungry (1400 kcal a day) and this recipe is perfect for that!

Thank you Emily, glad oyu like it!
