Cook's Notes:

Feel free to replace coconut milk with 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream plus 1/4 cup water.

You can substitute extra-virgin coconut oil for the MCT oil.

Substitute 1 teaspoon vanilla extract for the vanilla powder if desired, and 5 to 8 drops of stevia extract instead of erythritol.

Optional add-ins: 1/4 cup chocolate, vanilla, or plain whey protein, egg white protein powder (such as Jay Robb (R)), collagen powder, or plant-based NuZest(R).

It's nice and refreshing! BUT the macros are either wrong in the recipe, or the vanilla powder adds about 10 carbs?! I used vanilla extract instead, entered the ingredients in Carb Manager and got 4 net carbs for this recipe. Read More

Although I made this and it is super delicious it is not one I will try again any time soon. With 13g carbs it defeats my purpose - too many carbs for me. Read More

The coconut milk is what made this smoothie. It was very creamy. I followed the recipe without making any changes and I really enjoyed it. It does make a rather small smoothie so next time I will double the recipe. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I am not trying to lose weight so I used whole milk vanilla protein powder (whey) 1 TBL coconut oil and half a banana. Tomorrow I am planning to add some oats and chia seeds. I liked that I had almost 500 calories for a post-workout meal and was hungry again for lunch shortly after. Read More

I used two scoops of a keto vanilla shake powder instead of plain vanilla powder and it turned out fantastic! Very filling and it's a new way for me get my nutrients. I didn't have to add the MCT or erythritol because it was already in the powder as well. Read More

I substituted the coconut milk with unsweetened almond milk and an extra 1/2 tbsp of vanilla powder more. But tasty. Read More

It tastes fantastic. I didn't really watch my measurements, added extra spinach, added a couple tbs of Super Creamer w/ MTC (hazelnut flavor), no vanilla (other than what was in the almond milk) and added only 1 tsp of Swerve brown sweetener. And, added some salt for extra electrolytes. PERFECT pick me up. Read More
