Post-Workout Keto Iced Coffee Protein Shake

For all our fitness enthusiasts and active gym-goers, we’ve got the perfect keto protein shake recipe to help you reach your fitness goals in no time.

If you’re new to this one, the ketogenic diet, more commonly referred to as the keto diet, is a low to no carb, high protein diet that helps to promote weight loss.

This makes this keto protein shake recipe one of the best protein shake recipes for weight loss.

Let’s get started!

  • Begin with adding a healthy serving of ice to the blender.
  • Add an unsweetened creamer of choice to the blender, preferably one with the lowest carb content so this can be keto for you.
  • Add ½ cup of slightly under-ripe or under-ready avocados to the blender, to get those healthy and filling fats in.
  • Add a serving of protein coffee powder.
  • Add cacao powder or chocolate syrup to finish it off.

This simple keto protein shake recipe makes for a creamy and gooey mixture that can taste like ice cream.

The trick is to make sure the avocados aren’t yet mature, so you get that creamy consistency without the full taste of avocados.
