Recipe: Berry Avocado Smoothie (Keto)

One of the only things I miss that I can’t really replicate on keto is fruit. I looove fruit – unfortunately, my favorites contain a whole heckton of sugar and carbs naturally, which makes them completely off-limits to me these days. I do sometimes plan my macros around a splurge (and have been known to put some pineapple in my salad on a ‘cheat day’), but overall, berries are what I’m left with since they’re some of the lowest carb fruits. I do love them, and they’re super ripe and delicious when in season especially!

Recently, I won a giveaway sponsored by Malk Organics and have been able to try some of their various ‘milk’ products. So far the Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk is a big winner – it’s low carb, it tastes great, and it’s only made with a few fresh ingredients – so you know it’s good for you! I used it in a few different recipes – including this one – and it came out so good! That said, you can use whatever milk you prefer – it’ll work and I’m sure it will also be totally yummy!

What You’ll Need

✨ 1/4 cup of frozen mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries)

✨ 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk of your choice

✨ 1/2 cup fresh spinach

✨ 1 tbsp powdered monkfruit (or sweetener of your choice)

✨ 1 small avocado

✨ Optional: Chia seeds, peanut butter, whatever you want!

 

 

What You’ll Do

  1. Add everything to your blender! I usually put the spinach and berries on the bottom, and then the avocado and sweetener, followed by the milk poured over it all to fill in the gaps and add the moisture needed to blend.
  2. Pulse until everything is completely blended and carefully pour into a couple of glasses (this makes at least 2 medium glasses full).
  3. Enjoy!
