There’s absolutely no better way to start your day off than with this chocolate coconut protein breakfast shake. It’s thick, it’s creamy, and it kind of tastes like a candy bar! The flavors of cocoa powder, almond butter, and shredded coconut blend perfectly with the tangy and probiotic-rich Greek yogurt. You get everything you need from a nutritional perspective while also getting to enjoy the rich flavor of chocolate in the morning. We use skim milk for this recipe because it’s naturally protein- and calcium-rich. This isn’t a dairy-free recipe anyway because of the yogurt, but feel free to swap in your favorite milk replacement if you prefer them to cow’s milk. If the shake sounds so good and you have to have it on your dairy-free diet, use coconut yogurt instead of Greek yogurt! Obviously, these substitutions will change up the nutritional profile of the dish a bit. It’s important to make good choices at the grocery store, looking for sugar-free options and opting for organic nut milks if you can. You’ll also want to choose a milk that has a high protein content, so look for blended nut milks, soy milk, or protein-enriched coconut milk.

Getting in shape is hard work! Worth it? Definitely, but hard work nonetheless! Dieting can be stressful too, and the more that you obsess over it, the worse it seems to get. Sound familiar? When you begin to feel overwhelmed or like you don’t know what to do, take a moment to breathe. Then glance back over these simple diet hacks to slash calories and lose weight. Once you finally realize that eating right and losing weight does not have to be complicated, you’ll feel like a brand new person. I know the expression is to “take it one day at a time,” but my professional advice is to “take it one choice at a time.” Sometimes, especially when you’re first starting out, a day can seem like too big of a challenge. By taking it one choice at a time, it will be much easier to make the right (healthier) decision.
