How to do keto smoothie

Making keto smoothies can come in all different shapes and sizes. You can add yogurt, protein powder, or play mix and match between coconut milk or almond milk. The beauty of a good smoothie really lies in the ingredients you have available, and the ingredients you find delicious. Don’t ever let anyone tell you your smoothie is “wrong”. There should be no food shaming EVER.

This smoothie gives you plenty of energy, plus the flavours of vanilla and blueberries are an absolute flavor aficionado. The original recipe was made with yogurt and protein powder together, in combination with MCT oil, and coconut milk. You can make this with almond milk, vanilla extract, ice and no ice, honestly, they all taste great. It will inspire you to get creative with your smoothie recipes!

Notes

Health Benefits

It’s full of anti-oxidants for better detoxification, vitamin c for a healthy immune system, and folate for proper cholesterol function.
Antioxidants: Blueberries provide an excellent source of antioxidants which effectively “mop” up the free radicals caused by oxidative stress (exercise). This keto smoothie used as a post-workout refuel option not only helps the recovery process but tastes pretty good too!
Folate: or known as vitamin b9 – is a very important mineral for pregnant women, supporting normal fetal development by decreasing the risk of neural tube defects.  Men also need folate for sperm with correct chromosomal structure! Folic Acid also supports the regulation of cholesterol.
Vitamin C: is a powerful anti-inflammatory which aids in immune system support, as well as creating correct vassal dilation, which in turns helps rectify high blood pressure.  Vitamin C is also used to prevent scurvy, but scurvy only occurs when your diet is completely devoid of any vitamin C (like being on a ship for 12 months with nothing but slop for food).

Tips and Suitable Alternative Recipe

MCT Oil – If you don’t have any MCT oil that’s totally fine, you can replace this with coconut oil, or any fat you like.
Blueberries – Any berry will work (blackberry, raspberry, strawberry) and will have a similar carbohydrate content.
Protein Powder – If you don’t have protein powder, you can simply omit this from the recipe. If you still want a fluffy texture, you could try adding a raw egg, but these can sometimes contain salmonella on the eggshell, so pregnant women should avoid this.
Milk Alternatives – I’ve made this with unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened coconut milk, pea milk, and they all taste similar. Just find milk you like, and use that.– regular milk (cows milk) has a large amount of naturally occurring sugars (called lactose) which will increase the carbohydrate level of your smoothie, so just watch out for that one.
Like to put ice in your smoothie? ice or no ice, it all tastes great, so get creative with your smoothie recipes!
