Sneaky Green Keto Chocolate Smoothie

Whether for you or your kids, my Sneaky Green Keto Chocolate Smoothie has a secret power ingredient – spinach! – that is undetectable in this rich, chocolatey low carb smoothie. Cacao powder has loads of benefits, and my favorite brand of cacao (which I also use in my super delicious Chocolate Nut Butter Fat Bombs) recently released a keto cacao powder with reduced carbs and healthy fats, making it perfect for chocolate smoothies! If I’m feeling extra decadent, I’ll sometimes swirl the inside of the glass with a drizzle of ChocZero’s chocolate syrup – which makes this keto chocolate smoothie a great movie night treat without the guilt and adds the benefits of spinach, MCT oil and flaxseeds for PLENTY of healthy fats.

Cacao Powder, which is the minimally processed sister of cocoa powder, is known to aid in lowering blood pressure and is loaded with potassium which is essential in a keto diet and also protects from heart disease. The flavonoids in pure cacao powder also helps with insulin resistance – also essential to those living the keto life!

I usually make homemade almond milk at the beginning of the week for smoothies, chia pudding and my kids like it with their cereal. Homemade almond milk is simple to make and are free of preservatives and other fillers normally found in store-bought brands. Give it a try!
