Are you all about ketosis? Are you considering low carb high fat but worried about the slow transition time to fat adaptation? Or are you just the world's biggest coconut fan, happy to consume that rich fatty goodness morning, noon, and night? Your tasty arsenal has just gotten bigger and more delicious right in your coffee mug: Cave Shake Coconut Fat Packs. Here's the deal: open up a packet and pour it into your big coffee mug. Add coffee (or tea, or water ...) stir, and drink the most satisfying breakfast since scrambled eggs. All you taste is rich coconut flanked by your own java and touched with sweetness. Keto-licious!
Honestly, I was a little dubious about this drink mix. I've had years of experience with protein powders that dissolve about as well as gravel in my cup. So a (yummy!) coconut based shake sounded like it could be a recipe for greasy disaster. Lo and behold THIS STUFF IS AWESOME. It's the perfect answer for a keto-friendly morning, a way to get stable energy and healthy fats without a big pile of nuts or needing to cook eggs.
Just take the packet, empty into a cup or mug or shaker bottle. Add your liquid of choice, from coffee to water to nut milk to ginger turmeric tea. Just make sure the liquid is room temp or warmer, and you'll be set for an easy dissolve. Stir or shake vigorously and sip with pleasure. It's all the things you love about coconut, with a hint of sweet and salt and nothing more. It tastes like a Thai dessert, travels like a dream (bags are single-portion but resealable), and changes the game when it comes to paleo or keto options for ridiculously simple meals. I've been starting my day with a Cave Shake in a blender bottle with water, and I don't get hungry until well into the afternoon.
Cave Shake is a company that seems to be on top of the game when it comes to simply satisfying one need: sweet ketosis. They only make a few products and they are all coconut-based keto foods. This simplicity allows for perfection of each item, from the way the mix can dissolve so beautifully to the mild yet still happy-making level of sweetness. And don't at all be worried about that stevia - none of the typical weird bitter flavor of the extract is here. Cave Shake nailed it.
Honestly, much of the goodness is the simplicity of the ingredients. Start with organic coconut milk powder, easily mixable and deliciously creamy. Then, to sweeten the deal there's a touch of organic stevia, a pinch of salt to bring out the nutty coconut flavor, and some organic tapioca maltodextrin to make everything even more mix-friendly.
Despite the silky richness and creaminess, there is not one bit of dairy to be found, just rich coconut. You can add it to a shaker bottle with some coffee, or some almond milk, or anything that floats your boat. Just start with room temp or warmer liquid when mixing, and then drink or chill the beverage to your heart's and tongue's content.
Here's what they say about Fat Packs and their awesomeness:
"Cave Shake is a creamy and filling drink loaded with MCTs to power you through your day. CAVE SHAKES are ketogenic, Paleo, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free with no sugar added. They’re packed with HAPPY FATS™: fats that are good for you. Just grab, shake, and go!"
Coconut has been used by many cultures worldwide for thousands of years, and is well known for its many amazing properties. Coconut is so nutritious, its list of benefits reads like a patent medicine bottle. It’s full of health-boosting lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, has antimicrobial and anti-viral qualities, and has been shown to help with weight loss, Alzheimer’s, cognitive function and athletic performance. It nourishes the thyroid, helps prevent candida overgrowth, boosts the metabolism, and makes skin and hair softer. Also, it’s one of the tastiest things a person could eat. (No offense, sea veggies.)
Designed to be shelf-stable, these to-go drink mixes are ready for your shaker bottle, or even your cup of coffee with a brisk spoon stirring. I've tried it all, and this stuff mixes easily and perfectly.
"We invented CAVE SHAKES because we needed them! When we started a nutritional keto diet, we were required to eat tons of good fats. We were feeling great, losing weight rapidly, but still felt like we needed a dessert that wouldn't throw us off our game.
CAVE SHAKES were born! Creamy and delicious, these tubular treats quickly became our dessert for every meal. CAVE SHAKES are loaded with MCTs and amazing macros to power you through your day. They are keto, paleo, vegan, low carb, gluten free, no sugar added, diabetic friendly and bulletproof.
With love from Los Angeles,
TEAM CAVE SHAKE"
Honestly, that's up to you. There's a little bit of stevia to give the thing some sweet, and because this is a convenience food it is shelf-stable. But nutrient-wise, these Fat Packs are about as Paleo as apple pie isn't.
Absolutely. Totally. No holds barred all the way this is a keto-friendly food.
