Keto Avocado Smoothie Recipe
OMG smoothies! This keto avocado smoothie recipe is a great way to add healthy fat and deliciousness to your routine.
Making your own smoothies is a much healthier and cheaper alternative than anything that will be mixed up for you at a store.
Café or coffee shop smoothies are usually full of sugar – the opposite of what you need for keto.
Sure, they taste good. They’re convenient. But what’s the point if it’s going to throw you out of ketosis?
It’s not that hard to make them yourself. But, if you’re new to the smoothie game, there are some tips and tricks you need to know.
First, you need to invest in the right equipment. Not every kitchen appliance is up to the task of crushing ice. You need proper horsepower for this.
Look for a blender that best suits your needs. They come in many price points. If you make a lot of smoothies, or think you might in the future, you might want to invest in a more powerful model.
Also consider if you’re making smoothies for yourself, or for multiple people. It will be more convenient to buy a blender with a larger capacity if you’re blending for two or more.
Second, add some fat to your smoothie. This recipe uses avocado. Other than being nutritious, the avocado adds creaminess and improves the texture.
You’ll also want to add the ingredients in order. Start with the liquids, then soft fruits or vegetables, then finish with the ice.
If your smoothie is too bitter, you can add a keto-friendly sweetener. This recipe calls for stevia or erythritol, as well as some vanilla extract.
Finally, don’t jeopardize your ketosis by making an overly sweet smoothie. Make sure your coconut milk is unsweetened (very important) and don’t go overboard on the fruit.
Fruit is nutritious, but it’s easy to take in too much sugar if you don’t watch your portions.
