One of the most difficult parts of being on a ketogenic diet is not having breads. But it is possible to make some very tasty substitutes. When I first tried this recipe, it was very good, but had more onion and garlic powder than I liked, so I cut these ingredients in half in my recipe.
These are great for making a “sandwich” such as a sausage and egg breakfast sandwich. Add some avocado or guacamole to really make it special! I kept it simple with just a sausage patty. You could also cut them in half, toast them, and add butter to go along with a main dish or soup or stew.
I’ve never really been a fan of Almond Joy candy bars, but Mounds? OHH YEAH!!! I looovvvveee dark chocolate and coconut! And almonds? Well, they’re ok, but I’d rather not have them on my candy bars! But if you looovvveee Almond Joy, then by all means, add some almonds and maybe even some almond extract to these babies!
I have been low carb and Keto for several years and I do follow Dr. Berg. I love the way he explains how the keto diet works and helps the body to heal! For awhile, I did purchase Dr. Berg’s Chocolate Shake Mix. It was expensive and when I began traveling in my RV, it was difficult for me to receive packages.
So I began experimenting with creating my own substitute version of Dr. Berg’s Chocolate Shake Mix. This is what I have been using and it tastes just as good, if not better, than Dr. Berg’s Chocolate Shake Mix!
This is my version of Dr. Berg’s Chocolate Shake mix.
1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or substitute)
1 cup organic frozen chopped spinach (or kale)
1/4 cup wild blueberries
2 scoops LIVfit Superfood Blend
1 tbsp organic cacao powder
1 tbsp liquid MCT oil (or powdered equivalent)
1 1/2 tsp Pyure Stevia and Erythritol Blend
splash of vanilla
Pour almond milk in blender. Add frozen chopped spinach and frozen blueberries.
Add cacao powder and Superblend powder. I like to to use 1 scoop of each variety.
Add MCT oil, Pyure and a splash of vanilla. Blend well on high for at least 30 seconds.
The Superfood Blends contain pea protein which helps to thicken the shake. There are two varieties and I have been using 1 scoop of each, but you may choose to use just one variety. I enjoy having this for breakfast every morning!
