Blender? I Berry Know Her!
Boom! I’m back, baby! That’s a 2-for-1 pun for those of you keeping score at home. Mark it down accordingly.
I’ve been in love with smoothies for breakfast lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love delicious, syrup-y pancakes as much as the next guy, buuuuttt… Often times when I have a busy morning or if I’m feeling particularly lazy (far more often than I would like to admit) I am not going to break out a bunch of pans and ingredients and instead I’m going to grab my blender, drop a handful of fruits and veggies into it, press blend and be done with it.
It’s really that easy, these are honestly going to be pretty boring as far as readability because a smoothie doesn’t really take any thought to make, so the recipe is more like a small list of fruits that you drop into your blender.
The key here, as always, is that these are all mega-healthy and, wait for it… Keto-friendly! Who saw that coming?!
Strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, for example, have fewer carbohydrates than most other fruits. They’re also high in fiber, which aids digestion and can really help with keto constipation.
Because fiber is not broken down in the body, keto dieters sometimes deduct the grams of fiber from the total grams of carbs to determine how many net carbs are in a certain item. Berries are minimal in net carbohydrates and hence good for the keto diet in small amounts. This 9-gram-net-carb triple berry keto smoothie is filling enough for breakfast or a sneaky snack in the afternoon to curb your pre-lunch or pre-dinner cravings.
To prepare a single serving, combine the following ingredients in a blender:
- 240 mL (1 cup) water
- Frozen mixed berries, 1/2 cup (98 grams) (strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries)
- one-half avocado (100 grams)
- spinach, 2 cups (40 grams)
- 2 teaspoons hemp seeds (20 grams)
And uh, yeah. That’s it. You’re done!
