This is a ketogenic version of my "Superfood" recipe, which has a more traditional nutrient profile:
https://www.completefoods.co/diy/recipes/quidnycs-superfood-for-him

This "Ketofood" recipe is designed to have a bare-minimum net carb content suitable for inducing ketosis, while remaining nutritionally complete.

The following companion "Ketofood" recipe is designed with somewhat more forgiving parameters intended for ongoing ketosis: https://www.completefoods.co/diy/recipes/quidnycs-ketofood-for-ongoing-ketosis

I have also developed a "'Hot Java' Ketofood" recipe for enhanced thermogenic effect: https://www.completefoods.co/diy/recipes/quidnycs-hot-java-ketofood-for-thermogenic-ketosis

For detailed notes on a variety of topics also applicable to this recipe, please refer to the "Superfood" Notes section.

Please bear in mind that I am new to ketogenic diets, and no expert by any means. I have found the following resources to be helpful for background information:

Blending is basically a requirement for this recipe -- it starts off very watery and prone to separation. Once you've blended it, it turns a lighter color and has the consistency of thick milk (I recommend blending thoroughly enough that most of the chia seeds are broken up). It won't separate again after that.

Be sure to drink it cold.

It doesn't taste like much, but has a vague hint of coconut (my intention is to make the taste of the "Ongoing Ketosis" recipe better than this one, since its parameters are a bit more forgiving).

Terrible overall taste

When I started out doing Keto this is what I started with, I didn't last more than 4 days doing this it was so bad. It's exceptionally gritty. At the time it was OK but then I tried ketosoy and the recipe by kennufs and immediately ditched it. Currently I'm drinking Keto Chow.
