Coconut Flour vs. Almond Flour — Everything You Need to Know

Fat Boost Smoothie with Coconut Chantilly Cream

Fat Boost Smoothie with Coconut Chantilly Cream

Most days, I need a fat boost. First things that come to mind? Avocado and coconut. Avocado is perhaps one of the healthiest low carb foods you can have. Super low in carbs, high in healthy fats, and packed full of nutrients, dare I say it is a must for a low carb high fat keto diet. It’s smooth and buttery and used as a fruit in most Southeast Asian countries. As a result, it’s incorporated in a lot of sweet desserts, ice cream, and smoothies! Coconut cream has a higher fat content and makes ...

Traditional lemon squares ...

Peanut Butter Caramel Milkshake

Peanut Butter Caramel Milkshake

If you're a sane person, then peanut butter is probably one of your guilty pleasures - I know it's one of mine. But, when we're on a ketogenic diet, we can't always grab it by the spoonful to lick it off as a snack because of the carb count.

So, since I've been on a smoothie/milkshake stint lately, I decided to put together something I know you'd all love. You can also sub out ...

McKeto Strawberry Milkshake

McKeto Strawberry Milkshake

Growing up as a kid, I had my fair share of fast food takeout. Some of them I still miss to this day and try to recreate (a lot of the time in failure, but don't tell anyone). One of them that I was thinking about lately? McDonald's Strawberry Milkshake. Their disgustingly sweet syrup mixed into ice cream and served up to me in the nostalgic paper cup. Not the most beautiful thing to remember from my childhood, but it certainly holds something dear in my heart. Well, I think I've done it ...
