A Versatile Upgraded Protein Shake To Fit Your Needs

A typical morning for me focuses on reducing the variation in my routine – so that includes breakfast – which happens to be my favorite meal. I’m someone who can eat breakfast for, well, breakfast, lunch and dinner on consecutive days. Over the years, I’ve realized that breakfast truly is NOT the most important meal of the day depending on what type of nutritional protocol your engaged in. For me, there’s usually two modes: the first is true intermittent fasting where I’m consuming nothing but water and black coffee until about noon, or I’m doing some type of modified fast that allows me to put down a high-fat Bulletproof Coffee int he morning, keeping me fueled until the afternoon; the second is a pretty typical routine where I actually want to eat breakfast. On the weekends it’s usually a high fat omlette or over-easy eggs with bacon. But during the week, I need quick and easy.

This recipe is one of my favorites because it can be adjusted to meet your needs and differing nutritional protocols. It works well when I’m fasting until noon, as a high-fat, high-energy breakfast when I’m not and even as a tasty snack mid day. For those of you not in a carb restricted, high fat diet, feel free to eliminate the extra fat (MCT oil or Ghee/Butter) and add in something like half of a frozen banana, 1/4 sweet potato or even 1 or 2 pitted dates. I’ve also experimented with this by removing the almond butter and the consistency is still great.


  1. 3 to 4 cups of Unsweetened Coconut Milk <unsweetened almond, soy or cashew milk can be substituted> depending on desired consistency.
  2. * Optional 1/2 to 1 cup Cold Water depending on desired consistency
  3. 1 serving of Vanilla or Unflavored Grass-Fed or Plant Based Protein [I prefer complete proteins like whey or collagen]
  4. 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  5. 1 heaping TSP of Vanilla Chai flavored Maca Boost by Gaia Herbs
  6. 1 heaping TSP of Creatine Monohydrate by Douglas Laboratories
  7. 1/3 to 1/2 Cup Chia Seeds
  8. 1 TBSP Almond Butter
  9. 1 TBSP MCT Oil
  10. 1 TBSP Grass Fed Fat [I use Bulletproof Grassfed Ghee because butter doesn’t like to blend unless at room temperature or above; I’ve heard Cacao Butter works well too.]



Slap it all in a high powered blender and get to crackin’, ju herd?
