Are Smoothies Keto?
Most smoothie recipes call for milk, yogurt, and ice cream to achieve the creamy base that is typically blended with bananas, pineapple, fruit juices, and honey to sweeten the deal.
The problem with the “OG” healthy smoothie is that it is not healthy at all. They have too much sugar and far too many carbs to even dream of being keto-friendly.
The good news is there’s tons of low carb, much better for you substitutes you can use to whip up an equally delicious low carb smoothie that will help you drop a few pounds.
How To Make Keto Smoothies
Here’s what you need to know to make a healthy keto smoothie that you know won’t throw you out of ketosis. Instead of using regular milk, use full-fat coconut milk, almond milk, or heavy cream.
