Want to detox? With this Keto Green Smoothie, you may get a huge antioxidant boost to start the day off right.
Want to once more fit into your favorite jeans? Need more vigour, more pep in your step, or to feel like the GREAT you again?
I would like ALL of the aforementioned. When it comes to eating, December is frequently the “why not, give me another one” month. Every time, it’s a lot of fun.
But now that party season is gone, I genuinely feel relieved. I’m eager to prepare and consume healthy (AND delicious) food at home for a while.
THIS GREEN KETO SMOOTHIE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A MINI DETOX.
Let’s quickly examine typical smoothies, which are typically not keto friendly.
In addition to fruit, smoothies frequently include oats, dairy milk, yoghurt, or ice cream. Banana, honey, dates, and occasionally even sugar are used to sweeten them.
Yogurt and berries are acceptable in moderation on both the low-carb and the ketogenic diets. However, the majority of ingredients in typical smoothies are high in carbohydrates and sugar.
DO SMOOTHIES FIT INTO A KETO DIET?
They most certainly are, with a few modifications.
Rather than using dairy, Keto smoothie recipes call for unsweetened almond or coconut milk. This greatly reduces the amount of carbs.
enjoy fruit? As they are low in carbohydrates, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries make excellent alternatives for a low carb smoothie. I enjoy making strawberry smoothies, so I always keep a bag of frozen strawberries in the fridge (I’ll post the recipe soon!).

Another preferred ingredient in Keto smoothies is nut butter. Natural sweetness is added with peanut or almond butter, which also provides good fat.
Avocados can also be added to the recipe to make it creamier. You might also include mct oil, coconut butter, or coconut oil.
Simply add avocado to improve the richness.
This particular green smoothie is one of my favorites.
I am filling up on green vegetables rather than fruit (apart from a touch of lemon and the avocado, which is technically a fruit). Bring on the celery, kale, cucumber, fennel, and more, please!
HOW CAN A KETO SMOOTHIE FEEL DELICIOUS?
You need a high speed blender first. Unfortunately, without a blender, it’s nearly hard to turn fibrous veggies like celery or kale into a drink that’s smooth. This recipe does not call for crunchy particles to enhance the flavor. There is more wow the smoother.
Fresh herbs are my go-to secret ingredient for excellent green smoothies. In this particular low-carb smoothie recipe, I added mint leaves.
They give the smoothie a pleasant flavor and remind me of summer, which is my absolute favorite season.
Additionally, I’ve tried parsley, which pairs well with cucumber. I’ve also experimented with coriander and cilantro smoothies. Celery pairs particularly well with it.
In order to make my smoothie a balanced breakfast and get all my macronutrients in one serving, I chose to include a scoop of whey protein powder.
Make careful to find an unsweetened brand if you wish to utilize protein powder. The taste is unaffected by the protein powder. However, the drink becomes thicker as a result.
This Keto green smoothie is NOT sweet, SPOILER WARNING! Thanks to the almond butter and almond milk, it has mellow, semi-sweet overtones and is zingy, minty, refreshing, and creamy. It tastes fantastic in my opinion.
Tip for the recipe: Add a little more almond milk to thin out your smoothie if you prefer it liquid rather than thick.
This recipe yields a substantial 1 pint of a very large green smoothie, which serves as breakfast.
The recipe yields 2 cups, which you may eat in addition to your typical breakfast if you’d want a smaller serving. I computed the nutritional value per cup (assuming 2 servings) to make things as easy as possible. Per cup, there are 3 g of net carbohydrates.
