I joined Yuri’s beta testing group for the new book that he’s writing, and it all kicked off yesterday. Since then I’ve been trying to come up with new recipes for old favourites, bringing the carbohydrate levels way down for those low carb days. Since the diet doesn’t include my daily stress management tool – chocolate – I’ve been looking for alternatives.
So today being a low carb day, I changed up my favourite chocolate shake to stifle a craving. Not only is it low in carbs but it is very high in protein due to the peanut butter, spinach, and protein powder. My taste testers agreed that it was a fantastic alternative, both returning for seconds.
Low Carb Chocolate Shake
- 1 cup coconut milk (canned, full fat)
- 1 cup almond milk
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- 3-4 cups baby spinach
- 3 tbsp protein powder
- 3 tbsp dark cocoa powder
- 20 drops stevia (Now’s French Vanilla flavour is my favourite!)
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend well.
Serves 2 (each serving has approximately 4g of sugar)
Luca got chocolate on his face, shirt, the floor, and couch pillows! Just a normal day with 3 boys!
