8 Healthy Keto Smoothies For All-Day Energy

 


The main idea of the Keto diet is dropping your total daily carbs and relying on fat for getting calories.

Keto has been proven to be effective with weight loss, controlling blood sugar levels, and lowering bad cholesterol levels.

However, many smoothies are made of high carb ingredients and are not good for a Keto diet.

Luckily, there are a number of keto smoothies that are low in carbohydrates and delicious.

If you drink smoothies to help increase your fruit and vegetable intake, this can become a problem.

But, this does not mean you need to give them up completely on a Keto diet!

All you need to do is make sure to put Keto-friendly foods in your blender instead and there a huge number of keto smoothie recipes that are suitable!



What to Avoid

Some common fruits used in smoothies are high in carbs.

These include mangos, bananas, apples, and peaches- plus more.

It is important to check that what you are putting into your smoothie will not interfere with your Keto diet.

Sugar and honey are also popular add-ins to normal smoothie recipes.

For a Keto smoothie, simply swap them out with an artificial sweetener of your choice.

On the other hand, coconut oil can work wonders in a Keto smoothie!


Keto Smoothie Basics

Swapping out traditional smoothie ingredients for Keto ones is key.

For example, using coconut or almond milk instead of dairy milk, or adding an artificial sweetener instead of honey.

You can even add protein powder for a tasty post-workout smoothie- it is all up to you and what you think is the best.

Here is a list of delicious low carb, keto smoothie recipes for your Keto diet:
