Ingredients for the keto smoothie recipe

A keto smoothie is an easy way to include more superfoods in your diet. You’ll be surprised to see how full of energy you feel after you drink a glass of smoothie every morning. Here are the low carb ingredients to make it:

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup mixed greens or baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp spirulina powder
  • 1 tsp fresh raspberries
  • 1 tsp keto sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Coconut Milk

The keto smoothie recipe starts with a base of 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk. The medium-chain fatty acid ( lauric acid ) found in coconut milk will be absorbed by the body for instant energy, lowers cholesterol levels and improves blood pressure. Some studies show that coconut milk prevents heart attacks or a stroke.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are well known for their high content of essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals and antioxidants. Adding one tablespoon of chia seeds to your keto smoothie gives you almost 6g of fiber.

The great thing about fiber is that it doesn’t raise blood sugar so that we won’t count it as a carb. Chia seeds also contain high-quality protein. Experts believe that chia seeds can help you lose weight because the protein in chia seeds reduce your appetite.

Spirulina Powder

Another superfood to add in your keto smoothie is spirulina powder. This blue-green alga can detox your body from heavy metals and helps heal candida. Scientists found that the pigment found in spirulina lower the blood pressure and reduces cholesterol levels. Spirulina is used as an energy booster because in minerals and vitamins:
