How To Make Smoothies Keto
Traditionally, smoothies are loaded with sugar- and carb-loaded ingredients. From high-carb fruits and juices to added sugar and syrups, while they may taste great, they’re not so good if you’re counting carbs.
Instead, start your smoothie with a selection of keto-friendly fruits. Frozen strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are all great picks and can be found in the frozen fruit section of your grocery store.
Then, you need some sort of creamy element. Good options include plain Greek yogurt, almond milk, heavy whipping cream,
I like adding ice to my smoothies to give them extra texture and to make them taste more like a treat.
