We all love smoothies, but let’s face the facts – most of them are loaded with sugar and carbs. That’s not great news for keto dieters. As a matter of fact, those ‘healthy’ smoothies can kick your body out of ketosis, and you don’t want that after all the hard work you’ve done.
Keto smoothies, on the other hand, are high in fat, but low on cars. They should contain absolutely no sugar at all. Due to this, we can’t really say they’re tasty. However, with the right ingredients, you can make a cool keto smoothie without stopping the ongoing ketosis.
Instead of not drinking smoothies at all, we’re going to give you 5 simple keto smoothie recipes that work great. They will keep your body in a state of ketosis and help you lose even more weight. These nutritionally dense smoothies can be enjoyed for breakfast or as snacks between meals. Unlike any other treat, they will curb your cravings and keep you going for hours.
