I’m excited to share with you my new keto green smoothie recipe.
If you’re trying to eat a low-carb diet like keto or Gaps, smoothies can be a hard thing to add into your nutrition.
In general, smoothies can be very high in sugar…
You’re adding fruits, yogurt, and maybe juice…and you end up with a ton of carbs packed in a small cup.
But there is a way to enjoy smoothies while still eating a low-carb or low-starch diet.
In addition, if you’re not a big fan of spinach in your smoothies, you’re going to love this one.
If you don’t mind spinach, I have another amazing spinach based green smoothie you can find here.
This one doesn’t even look green!
Scroll down to watch me make this smoothie!
Here’s what you’ll need in this delicious low sugar, and low-carb, keto friendly smoothie…
Green Base We’re Using
Instead of spinach, I’m going to be using creamy avocado and 1/4 of a cucumber.
The cucumber is completely optional. If you want a thicker smoothie, just use the avocado.
I’m using 1/2 avocado in this keto smoothie.
I always use either ginger or turmeric in my smoothies because of the amazing anti-inflammatory properties they contain.
Your body benefits from these properties to help reduce inflammation and support your immune system as well.
I prefer ginger in smoothies because it adds a fresh taste. Turmeric is a bit more spicy.
Low Carb Fruits
I’m adding 2/3 cup of frozen raspberries. Raspberries are very low in sugar and have a low glycemic index.
This is about 7 grams of carbs.
If you don’t have frozen berries, just get fresh ones and add some ice.
I’m also adding 1/4 cup of blueberries. Make sure to get organic berries if you can.
I use collagen protein in all my green or non-green smoothies because it’s benefitial for joint health.
I prefer to use collagen protein because of the texture. It gets easily absorbed and has no after taste.
If you don’t consume milk products, you can definitely use a plant-based protein. Just watch for those hidden sugars.
I’m using about 1 cup of unsweetened original almond milk. You can use regular milk or simply water.
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/4 cucumber (optional)
- 1 tsp fresh ginger
- 1/4 cup of blueberries
- 2/3 cup of raspberries
- 1 scoop of collagen protein
- 1 cup of almond milk (unsweetened)
- Place all the ingredients in a blender.
- Blend well for about 10-20 seconds.
