Recently we bought a Keto Avocado Smoothie from a popular health food shop near us. But guess what? The smoothie wasn’t Keto at all.
After drinking it I felt a little edgy and decided to test my ketones with a ketone meter and they were very low. (It was the first meal of the day by the way).
Anyway, to cut a long story short I loved the taste of it and went about recreating my own version of the Keto Avocado Smoothie, ensuring everything was low-carb and healthy.
Instead of the regular whey protein the “nutrition” outlet used I used a keto collagen protein that we keep on hand. As the carbs are all fiber, it also has MCT”s in it to bring up the fat content and collagen protein is more Keto friendly than whey is.
I also wasn’t sure if they were cutting corners with the peanut butter part of the ingredients so I made sure that we used 100% natural peanut butter in our smoothie recipe to keep it low-carb and Keto avoiding added sugars.
Along with those ingredients to thicken the smoothie we used two teaspoons of psyllium husk.
Psyllium husk is a great source of fiber and also acts as a prebiotic to feed good bacteria in the gut.
