Healthy smoothies are a perfect addition to a keto diet or any other diet. They are easy, filling, delicious and full of nutrients like fibre and antioxidants. Smoothies are not boring, you can enjoy them everyday because of the variety in fruits and vegetables you can use. These fruits and vegetables also give different flavours and colours to the smoothies.
Smoothies are a great way of adding fruits and vegetables to your diet. If you have kids who don’t like fruits and vegetables, make smoothies and you will be surprised and remember to thank me later.
The best way to make sure of having a healthy smoothie is to make them yourself as you will be able to control the sugar you use. If you are on a keto diet, you will also be in a position to use low carbs fruits and vegetables. Store bought smoothies tend to have more sugar added to them.
Smoothies can be enjoyed any time of the day, in the morning during breakfasts to give you the nutrients you need for the day. They can be enjoyed after gym to put back nutrients lost during the session. Smoothies are also good as a snack while chilling and refreshing.
There are a lot of smoothie recipes out there but not all of them are healthy or good for a keto diet. Raspberry and avocado smoothie is one of the perfect smoothies for a keto diet because both of the fruits used are low in calories but nutritious.
Raspberries are high in minerals, vitamins, fibre and other antioxidants. Fresh or frozen raspberries can be used when making smoothies. If where you stay it is difficult to find raspberries, other berries can be used for this recipe like strawberries, blueberries or blackberries.
Avocados are high in fibre, vitamins such as vitamin B, C, E and K. Avocados are also rich in minerals such as potassium and copper. They contain healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. Avocados make smoothies creamy without adding fresh cream or milk. If you like avocados you can also try my keto Avocado Salmon Breakfast.
