The secret to spicing up your day and, most importantly, your keto diet, is to break out the blender every once in a while and get creative with a smoothie.

The beauty of smoothies is that they can pretty much fit any occasion: You can make a very lean, nutritious smoothie that feels more like breakfast or an energetic snack and you can also make a delicious, sweet smoothie that -while still being healthy- tastes more like a dessert.

In this article we’re gonna show you three essential smoothies: The green smoothie, the peanut butter (dessert) smoothie, and the protein smoothie.

Avocado Smoothie

As its name suggests, the base of this smoothie is creamy avocado.

Ingredients:

  • Two medium avocados
  • 200 ml cashew milk
  • 20 grams strawberries
  • 20 grams blueberries
  • 40 grams raspberries

How to make:

  • Blend avocados first. Add a little cashew milk if they refuse to blend properly.
  • Add berries, blend, and finally add milk and blend everything together.

This is a smoothie that fits breakfast because one, it pumps you full of water -the best kind of water- thanks to the berries and two, it provides you with a lot of fat and fiber which will keep you going for a long time by themselves.

Make sure you always make at least two helpings because chances are you’ll want more of this about halfway into your morning routine!

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Smoothie

No more needs to be said about this smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 100 ml almond milk
  • 200 ml cashew milk
  • 50 grams creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • Vanilla essence
  • Keto friendly sweetener to taste

How to make:

  • Mix all ingredients together in the blender, except for the cocoa powder, and blend.
  • Add cocoa powder and mix thoroughly.
  • Taste check: If not sweet enough, add sweetener and blend again until sweet enough.

While this smoothie can easily go without a few things, like the cocoa powder and cream cheese, the vital ingredient here is cashew milk. Cashew milk becomes frothy in a way no other vegetable milk does and gives this smoothie a texture to die for.

Save this recipe for when you’re craving carbs and kill those cravings with this incredibly delicious smoothie.

Protein Smoothie

This smoothie focuses on giving you healthy, tasty protein without all the hassle of having to chew.

Ingredients:

  • 100 grams hemp hearts, hulled
  • 20 grams peanuts
  • 50 grams cashews
  • Protein powder of your choice
  • 700ml water
  • Chia seeds, 30 grams

How to make:

  • Add water, nuts, and blend thoroughly.
  • Once totally blended together, strain through a nut bag.
  • Add milk to the blender along with protein powder and chia seeds. Blend for one minute.
  • Add sweetener, stir, and let rest for five minutes or more before drinking.

This last one is for all you nut nuts, and is totally better iced. You can add a little ice when serving and a little pumpkin spice on top. It goes great any time of the day.


Enjoy!
