This delicious shake may be used occasionally in place of a meal, or on the Fat Fast, or to help induce ketosis. Make sure to take your supplements, including potassium, calcium, magnesium and plenty of water, to protect electrolyte balance in the body. Lovely served with a dollop of Creme Fraiche or whipped cream.

Chocolate Shake:
3/4 cup ice cold water
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup Da Vinci Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup Da Vinci Sugar Free Pancake Syrup or equivalent
1/2 cup chocolate whey protein
1 large egg
1 1/2 tbsp coconut or light-tasting olive oil
1 tbsp Dutch cocoa
1 Splenda packet (optional)
1/2 tsp Thickening Agent (okay, this is my recipe, but you could use Xanthan gum)or it is optional

In blender, add water, whipping cream, Da Vinci Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup and Da Vinci Sugar Free Pancake Syrup, chocolate whey protein, egg, coconut oil, Dutch cocoa, Splenda and Xanthan gum, if using. Blend well.

Variations: Create-a-Flavor Shake: Use any flavor of whey protein and Da Vinci Sugar Free Syrup to flavor your shake. Omit cocoa powder, where necessary.

To complete the day's fat fast, have at least 2 cups of this shake and choose one or two menu ideas from Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution book (also in a previous post below) or one or two of the options in my sample menus in the blog.

Helpful Hint: If the raw egg bothers you, coddle it first just under one minute in boiling water.
