5 Healthy Low Carb Smoothies. Which is your favorite keto smoothie?
Going on a diet is easier said than done, and if you are on a keto diet or low carb eating plan, you may be struggling to find something different to feed yourself.
We get tired of eating plain meat, vegetables and fat all the time, so we really try hard to spice things up by making new recipes.
When it comes to smoothies, we found that most of the recipes out there call for high carb fruits.
Although they're all delicious, the sheer amount of sugars in them will kick you out of ketosis in a flash.
Those smoothies would definitely have more carbs than your low carb plan allows so we are going to give you some fresh ideas!
What We Love About Low Carb Smoothies
One thing we love about smoothies is that you can literally improvise and it's okay. Chances are the results will still be acceptable.
Another great thing about them is that you can pack so much nutrition into one easily digestible glass.
So, if you love a good smoothie now and then, don't worry!
We’ve got you covered with these 5 super smoothie recipes that will keep you healthy and on track with your keto diet.
1-) Blueberry Almond Keto Smoothie
Packed with the goodness of blueberries and almonds, this is one of the low carb smoothies that is super easy to make.
It's loaded with antioxidants and healthy fats to keep you going through the day.
All you need to do is combine some organic blueberries with raw almond butter, unsweetened almond milk and some MCT in a blender and blend.
Yes- blueberries do have some sugar too, which is why, this one can be the perfect ‘treat’ when you’re on a low carb or keto diet.
Just use fewer berries if you need to lower the carbs even more.
But, why is this smoothie so healthy? Well just look at the ingredients!
First, we have blueberries-
Blueberries contain anthocyanins which have been shown to have positive effects on the brain, heart, and blood sugar.
Not only that, but blueberries are also anti-inflammatory.
Second, the almonds and almond milk are known to be high in healthy fats, have beneficial fiber and vitamin E.
Finally the MCT is believed to be helpful for the brain as well as in controlling blood sugar.
What are you waiting for? Go get the ingredients and drink your energizing breakfast tomorrow morning!
2-) The Green Keto Smoothie
Don't we all know about how critical it is to get your greens in each day?
From the vitamins essential to bone health and immune function, to the powerful antioxidants you'll want to get your greens at the grocery store this week!
This green smoothie can really take your low carb diet up a notch with a touch of natural detoxing.
You can combine all your favorites in this one- avocados, kale, broccoli, swiss chard and even spinach.
Pick the ones you like and add them to your blender with some coconut milk, cream, vanilla protein, avocado oil and macadamia nut oil and blend.
To lend this smoothie a touch of freshness, you can also add some mint leaves to it.
3-) Microgreens Matcha Keto Smoothie
Microgreens are nothing less than superfoods. They are the cute and tiny greens at the baby stage really. They're picked at about an inch of growth.
According to this article by Dr. Weill, What are Microgreens, they are about five times more nutritious even than the mature greens we eat.
Adding them to your meals everyday- especially when you’re on the keto diet, can be super healthy!
To whip up this smoothie, all you need to do is combine some microgreens with MCT oil, matcha powder, coconut milk, blueberries and ice in a blender.
Then you just blend it all together.
This smoothie is literally ready in no time and you’ll love its delicious flavor.
If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you can also add some collagen peptides to the mixture.
Let's say a quick few words on matcha powder before we move to our next super low carb smoothies.
This is powder made from a green tea and has a certain catechin that some feel helps the body fight cancer as well as promote healthy weight loss.
4-) Strawberry Coconut Keto Smoothie
The fruity flavor of strawberries come together with the creaminess of coconut in our next featured smoothie.
Whether you’re on a keto diet or not this is one you can really enjoy.
Simply combine some strawberries with full fat coconut milk and a couple of drops of vanilla essence if you’re a vanilla fan like me.
Blitz it all together, pour it in a glass and top it with some coconut flakes for a bit of crunch and change in the texture.
If coconut flakes aren't your thing, try some chia seeds for a nice change of pace.
5-) Chocolate Sea Salt Keto Smoothie
Yep- you read that right. The keto diet doesn’t really seem that tough now does it?
I mean, if you can still have chocolate then all is well in the world.
And dark chocolate is healthy in moderation. It also has powerful antioxidants and studies show it helps to improve mood, memory, and immunity.
So, you can't go wrong with this one!
Whipping up this smoothie is easy!
Just combine some coconut yogurt, tahini, cocoa powder and chocolate sea salt ketones in a blender.
If you’re longing for a touch of sweetness, you can also add some liquid stevia to the mix.
Blend it all together and you’re done!
