Keto Strawberry Smoothie

A thick and creamy strawberry smoothie, made with frozen vegetables! Enjoy this as a protein and fiber rich breakfast, snack, or dessert! We love it topped with whipped cream, eaten with a spoon, as a sort of "ice cream" like dessert. 9 NET CARBS

Ingredients

  • 1 cup zucchini chopped & frozen
  • 3 large strawberries frozen
  • 1/4 cup almond milk unsweetened (or sub coconut milk or heavy whipping cream)
  • 1/4 cup full fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 20 grams collagen or whey protein isolate (optional, or protein powder of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon monk fruit sweetener optional, or to taste

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender, and process until very smooth. Adjust thickness by adding additional milk, if desired.
  • Adjust sweetness to taste by adding more monk fruit sweetener.

Notes

What are the net carbs in this smoothie? A large amount of fruit is what makes smoothies inappropriate for a keto or very low carb diet. Using vegetables in place of the fruit, and using healthy fats and proteins, smoothies can be a great choice. This smoothie has 9 net carbs.
Lower the carbs: Omit the yogurt and add a little more almond milk. Be sure to use a protein powder without carbs.
Mix up the Berries: Use a mixture of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries for a mixed berry smoothie.
Switch up the Veggies: Frozen zucchini is a great option in smoothies because it’s undetectable! You can also use 1 cup spinach or kale (which will give this a green hue), or add more healthy fats by using 1/4 or 1/2 frozen avocado.
Garnish it: Make this a fun treat by garnishing this smoothie with whipped cream (make it homemade without sugar), fresh chopped strawberries, or nuts/seeds, like walnuts and chia seeds. I make my smoothies extra thick and then add some garnishes for texture and eat it like ice cream!
