Keto Strawberry Almond Smoothie

While bananas are typically a smoothie must-have ingredient, when on keto, bananas are pretty much a no-no. While most traditional smoothie recipes are heavy in carbs because of fruit and milk, there are simple hacks to create low carb smoothies that are delicious, nutritious and filling. In this Keto Strawberry Almond Butter Smoothie, we employ my favorite keto hacks for a low carb treat!

Some of my keto smoothie hacks is opting for unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk vs cow’s milk, or for probiotics and a tangy taste, using full fat greek yogurt or kefir as a milk substitute. You’ll be adding good stuff for your gut and cutting the carbs! And if you love the taste of banana in your smoothies, Isopure’s Banana Cream zero carb protein powder will give you all the flavor, minus the carbs and with a super dose of protein! I usually just use their vanilla protein powder because I always have that in my kitchen, but you can add lots of flavor without the guilt with their zero carb protein powders that come in lots of delicious flavors.

This keto strawberry and almond butter smoothie is a terrific way to start the day – I’ll usually add a tablespoon of MCT oil and a scoop of collagen peptides to give it an extra nutritional and anti-aging boost, but that’s up to you! What’s important is to select an almond butter that has no added sugar and is as close to pure as possible – I like Justin’s or if you have a Whole Foods nearby, you can grind up some fresh almonds into a butter without anything added!
