This month my sponsor is KetoFUEL, and for those of you who don’t know, I partner with one keto brand every month and their donation keeps this train up and running.
Before I start this review, I think it’s important to note that I have never partnered with supplement makers as sponsors because my primary focus is on nutritional ketosis through food. BUT…
When KetoFUEL first approached me, the magic words that got me interested were these:
the shake was designed to be keto macro-perfect.
A serving is 5% carbs, 20% protein and 75% fat, with 21g of fat per two-scoop serving. The main ingredient is dehydrated sweet cream (YUM!). Additionally, it has some fun add-ins that have healing properties like himalayan sea salt and turmeric although, don’t worry, you won’t taste either in a serving.
The shake itself is delicious and reminds me of a vanilla chai drink. I have made it both hot and cold, and while you can mix it with a spoon, I find it’s best blended.
I’ve also made it into waffles! In a personal-sized blender I mixed 1 oz softened cream cheese, 1 egg, 2 tbsp melted salted butter, 2 tbsp KetoFUEL, 1/8 tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp almond flour, 1 tbsp heavy cream and a dash of cinnamon. Then I poured into my waffle maker with some blueberries sprinkled on top.
One simple trick I’ve tried is using it as a creamer in my coffee in the morning, and that works too!
Finally—and I’ve saved the best for last—I’ve made it into frosting! Simply mix 1 scoop of KetoFUEL with 1 tbsp heavy cream and mix. Add to the top of your favorite keto baked goods!
Although I don’t usually go for meal replacements, I found this to be something I could easily make for breakfast when I’m feeling lazy and I don’t need to feel weird about the ingredients like most shakes out there. And honestly, it’s been the ingredients that have turned me off other products.
I really appreciate the clean ingredients in KetoFUEL. The full ingredient list includes non-GMO Dehydrated Sweet Cream, Whole Egg Powder & Whey Protein Concentrate from grass fed cows. KetoFUEL includes the highest grade MCT Oil Powder, Organic Sea Salt, Cinnamon, Sweet Leaf Stevia and Vitamin C. Wild-crafted Organic Fijian Turmeric and Organic Pink Fijian Ginger, Ferrous Fumarate, Vitamin D3, Niacin, Vitamin A Palmitate, Biotin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B1 Mononitrate, Riboflavin and Vitamin E Acetate. They state that all ingredients are ORGANIC and non-GMO and contains no exogenous ketones.
The price of KetoFUEL is comparable to other high-end meal replacement shakes, and if you only use one scoop per serving like I do, it comes out to about 60 8-10oz shakes at about $2 per shake.
If you’re serious about Keto and want a shake that uses clean ingredients, I highly recommend this shake. I haven’t come across one that is even close to as clean, and it’ll last you months.
