How to Make a Smoothie Keto-Friendly
Making smoothies isn’t a new thing of course, but making them keto-friendly and low-carb is definitely new to many. Berries are a wonderful source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are low on the glycemic index and perfectly acceptable on a low carb and keto diet. Some choose not to enjoy any fruit at all on a keto diet but I believe you can have some flexibility even eating just 20 total carbs a day. While this smoothie recipe can be enjoyed for breakfast or any meal of the day, I’d add some collagen or protein powder for the added protein benefit. This is an easy berry smoothie recipe, and if you don’t enjoy berries on a daily basis, it may even taste like a luscious dessert to you!
Easy Berry Smoothie
This recipe has just 5 ingredients and optional sugar-free whipped cream if desired. It’s quickly made in your blender and add in’s like collagen, protein powder, MCT oil, and even some nut butters would really make this even more satisfying and filling. But the basic recipe is simple enough and you can feel free to add more to it if you like.
Like I said, smoothies that include fruit can be enjoyed on a low carb diet, portion amounts is the key to keeping them low carb and keto friendly. I also have a Dairy-Free Whipped Cream recipe you might like!
You can also add some mashed berries mixed with a little low carb sweetener like Swerve Confectioners or Berry Liquid Stevia to add some texture or to top on the whipped cream.
