How to Make Keto Smoothies
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 a great source of 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 when eating just 20 total carbs a day.
While this low carb smoothie recipe can be enjoyed for a quick breakfast or any meal of the day, I'd add some collagen or or a scoop of protein powder or whey protein for the added protein benefit.
This is an easy berry smoothie recipe, and if you don't enjoy fresh berries on a daily basis, it may even taste like a luscious dessert to you!
