Chocolate Thick Shake & The Best Green Dip
I have a few new recipes to share with you today! I've been on a keto diet for a week now in order to heal some gut issues and WOW, I've had huge success already. I'm going to share a video about it on my YouTube channel soon.
One hot afternoon last week I was in the mood for something frosty and chocolatey, and so this ultra creamy chocolate thick shake was born. It's keto, vegan, and paleo - it's totally sugar free. It was satisfying and kept me feeling full for hours.
If you follow me on Instagram and have ever watched my insta-stories, you know how much I LOVE green dip. I make a batch at least once a week and pretty much always have a jar in my fridge. I enjoy it with veggies, on crackers, use it as salad dressing, or add a scoop to many of my meals. Oh, and I eat it by the spoonful sometimes lol.
This is such a great way to get more greens into your diet. You can use spinach and/or any herbs of your choice. I often use parsley and cilantro but I've also added spinach, dill, and basil - and I've tried every combination.
I've posted a short new recipe video HERE for my green dip on YouTube (it's under 2 minutes). You will see the full recipe in the description box of the video.
You can add more or less water to make it thinner or thicker, so it's quite versatile. You can also enjoyed it as a creamy pasta sauce!

I can't wait for you to try this dip and let me know what you think. So many people from my Instagram (sweetlyraw) have made it and are loving it. I hope you do too.
Now let's get our chocolate fix, shall we?!
This recipe is really simple - only 4 ingredients. You can add the stevia or omit it and rely on the subtle sweetness of the coconut milk. Note: I like to use just enough stevia to create a little sweetness without the bitter taste. That's the secret to using stevia.
Chocolate Thick Shake
3/4 cup full fat coconut milk
2 tablespoons cacao powder
10 drops stevia, optional
1 cup ice cubes (5-6 large)
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
For the chocolate drizzle I melted down some 100% chocolate - this has NO sweetness at all. You can really use any chocolate of your choice. Use a spoon to drizzle it on the inside of the glass right before spooning the shake into it.
Wishing you all a great week!
