This Keto Green Smoothie is a low-carb, delicious option to boost your vitamin intake without compromising on taste. Blending unsweetened almond milk with a scoop of protein-packed keto powder, plus avocado, spinach, and fresh mint, your tastebuds and energy levels will get the hit you crave. Add pure pleasure to your healthy routine and top it with tasty toasted coconut.
An easy blend-and-go recipe, the Keto Green Smoothie packs a protein punch for sustained energy. Great as a breakfast option, to recharge after exercise – or as a replacement for the afternoon sugar rush. The mint adds a fresh edge, and you are treating your body to healthy fats with avocado.
Avocado is the perfect high-fiber substitute for the usual carb-laden banana, ensuring your smoothie is creamy but low in starch. Incorporating potassium, magnesium and folates, this is a classic power food.
When you add spinach, you get a wide range of vitamins in one drink, including your all-important C and B12. Popping bulk spinach into the freezer in portions will ensure you always have it to hand when it’s out of season, and your smoothie will be wonderfully cold and refreshing.
This simple recipe gives you all the nutrients you need to keep energy levels high, and the toasted coconut flake garnish elevates this zero-carb treat – you may even feel like you are having dessert! Packed with flavor and a perfect five-minute addition to your morning rush, this can be portioned out in advance – just add unsweetened almond milk, blend and garnish.
