    I’ve been adding cocoa powder to your shamrock shake! SO GOOD! I like the idea of adding chia seeds, but can you taste it?

    • Paola says:

      Great minds think alike! ๐Ÿ˜œ Regarding the chia seeds, they’re tasteless but you’ll have to add more water as they’re a pretty strong thickener. I love them, keep me full for longer also! xo!

    • Paola says:

      I mean, there are different sized hass avocados too (I’ve been getting tiny ones here in Mexico!). Don’t worry too much about the size, just add it to taste ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Paola! I am really confused about coconut milk. I have it in both can and box type. When I refrigerate it it is as hard as a rock. Is that how it is supposed to be? I thought I would be able to scoop it out sort of like scooping whipped cream. How can I measure a 1/2 cup? Also, is there a difference between coconut milk and coconut cream? I am so confused. Please help! I want to make your Bulletproof Chocolate Milkshake! ๐Ÿ™

    • Paola says:

      Hi LaWanda! I get you on the coconut milk, takes a couple times to get the hang of it. And yes, it does solidify when you put it in the fridge. Remember that it’s essentially coconut oil, which is solid even at room temp (unless you live in a warm climate of course). You can actually just use it solid straight from the fridge for this one, particularly if you have a bullet or high speed blender. So just sort of scoop out roughly equal parts of the thick cream and the liquid part that sits at the bottom.

      And for other recipes, you may want to heat it up briefly and it will become silky-smooth once again ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hope this helps! xo

        Hi again, Paola! Thank you for the quick reply, and, yes, it helped tremendously. As is the usual case, I was over analyzing. I tend to make things more complicated than they really are. I cannot wait to try the Bulletproof Chocolate Milkshake! I just need to pick up a few ingredients, and I will be good to go. Thanks for all you do, and keep up the good work. This low carber counts on you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just made this double the recipe and a package of cream cheese instead of the avocado since I was really craving cheesecake. It is fabulous! Iโ€™ll try the avocado another time as Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s delicious that way as well. Thank you!

    I have a question- In one teaspoon alone for swerve there is 5g of total carbs. If I were to add 2 tablespoons of swerve to this it would equal 20g total carbs. The nutrition label posted on this only has 7g total carbs. I am new to this, what am I missing?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Heather! Keep in mind that Swerve is a sugar alcohol and not a regular carb, so it’s common practice to simply subtract them as you do fiber. But I would suggest you read more up on it ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo!

    I love my morning shake! If Iโ€™m going to bea little short on fat, I will throw in a tablespoon of sugar-free peanut butter. Not much beats chocolate and peanut butter!

    This looks amazing! Cant wait to have it tomorrow morning. Can I use cocoa powder instead of cacao? If so, do I use the same amount? I couldn’t find any in the grocery store and my Amazon order of it won’t be in until next week.

    • Kim says:

      This is AMAZING!!! I did end up using cocoa powder and it was AMAZING!! The second time I made it, I added chilled coffee for an extra jolt in the morning.

      • Paola says:

        So happy you loved it Kim! And thanks for reporting back in detail- that chilled coffee sounds like an awesome addition! xo!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Kim! Apologies for missing your comment earlier, cocoa works fine in place of cacao (it’ll just be a bit darker in hue). xo!

    Not sure why you guys add ICE to everything in the US.
    Sure, perhaps in the middle of summer, that could work, but otherwise…

    I am hypothyroid and always cold,
    so I’d rather have a hot (or at least somewhat warm) breakfast…
    Can I modify this recipe to get it to work at all?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Cis! I mean I’m not in the US and this is a milkshake so it’s meant to be COLD lol! You can always just skip the ice and call it a smoothie? ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo!
