As far as breakfast goes, smoothies certainly tick a lot of boxes. They’re quick and easy to make, are super portable and you can pack a lot of nutrients into them. Oh yeah, and they also happen to be a delicious way to start the day — especially in summer!
However, if you’re on a ketogenic diet, it can be surprisingly difficult to find smoothie recipes that fit into your regimen, thanks to the fact that most are packed with high carb fruits like banana. But the good news is, smoothies don’t have to be off the menu entirely when you go keto. We’ve tracked some down that are so delicious you’ll even forget they’re low carb.
These 9 recipes rely on high fat (the good kind!) ingredients like avocado and nut butter as well as some low carb fruits to give you the sweetness and creaminess you love, without all the carbs. Scroll through the gallery for 9 of our favourite low carb, keto-friendly smoothies and shakes.
