Smoothies come in many flavors from the light and fruity to the rich and indulgent. I think it’s safe to say that this Keto chocolate peppermint smoothie (CoBionic) falls into the second category. The taste of this smoothie is more like a decadent hot chocolate drink or a brownie sundae, than a healthy smoothie. But tastes can be deceiving because with only 3 grams net carbs and an extra boost from the CoBionic Indulgence powder, this is one treat you can feel good about. So let go and indulge, your tastebuds will thank you!

Three Reasons You Should Be Adding Avocado to Your Smoothies

  1. It’s creamy – Maybe we should lead with the health benefits, but the number one reason I add avocado to my smoothies is the unmistakable rich and creamy texture. It’s worth adding for that alone but the benefits don’t stop there! 
  2. It’s loaded with “good” fats – Avocados contain oleic acid (also present in olive oil) a monounsaturated fatty acid associated with benefits like decreased inflammation [1]. 
  3. It’s packed with nutrients – Even without the good fats, avocados are full of nutrients. They are particularly rich in potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin K, along with many other essential vitamins and minerals [2]. 

Why Flavored Collagen is a Great Time Saver

I love smoothies because they are so easy to make. All you have to do is put all the ingredients in the blender and hit the button. I could do it in my sleep and some mornings, it feels like I am! I am always on the lookout for good smoothie recipes with the fewest ingredients possible. That’s why I love CoBionic Indulgence

CoBionic Indulgence is a collagen supplement that is specially formulated with only 1 gram net carbs. It is sugar and dairy free, and 100% natural. It is also a two for one ingredient! Not only is is loaded with beneficial nutrients, it also has a rich chocolate flavor. That way, I can get my healthy add-in and my flavor boast in one scoop. Two birds with one stone never tasted so good!

More Low-Carb Recipes Featuring Mint

Mint is a fun flavor to explore because it can remind you of summer or winter depending on what other ingredients it’s paired with. Here are a few of our favorite Keto-friendly mint recipes.
