Coconut Keto Smoothie vs. a Typical Smoothie

When following a low carb diet, eating smoothies can be very difficult without the right recipes. When you typically think of a smoothie it is loaded with carbohydrate rich fruits along with maybe low-fat milk or yogurt.

Low fat usually means higher sugar content and higher carbohydrate count. When the fat is removed from a food, it is replaced with hydrogenated oils and sugar. Neither is good for you nor are they low carb. Which is why on a Keto diet you need to always buy full fat versions of your foods. (Source)

Why Keto smoothies are a great idea for your diet.

The Keto diet isn’t often well balanced in nutrients. You need to omit almost all fruits and vegetables on the Ketogenic diet as most are very high in carbohydrates. To meet your daily fat quota while staying in range for calorie consumption, you may tend to leave them out completely.

According to Medical News Today some of the most low carb fruits and vegetables that would be ideal to include in a Keto smoothie are:

  • Watermelon
  • Strawberries
  • Cantaloupe
  • Avocadoes
  • Honeydew
  • Peaches
  • Cucumber
  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • Celery
  • White Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Swiss Chard

If you have the right mixture of low carb ingredients, you can easily enjoy a delicious Keto friendly smoothie to have a cup full of nutrients you may be omitting from your diet, all in one glass.

The Best Supplement to Enhance Your Ketogenic Smoothie Recipes:

Hands down my vote goes for my favorite protein powder, So Lean and So Clean by Ora Organic. This is the protein powder I use to enhance all of my Keto smoothie recipes. As I mentioned before, while the Keto diet is great for losing weight and aiding other medical ailments, it is often lacking in many essential vitamins and nutrients.

So Lean and so Clean protein powder has only 4 grams of carbohydrates in 2 scoops. It also contains 2 full servings of vegetables, 22 grams of protein, and only 1 gram of sugar! (But no added sugar.) It is a delicious plant-based protein powder that I discovered when searching for a new protein powder for my smoothies after beginning the Keto diet. The one I was using, (while delicious,) was loaded with carbohydrates.

So Lean and So Clean became my perfect smoothie companion for getting all the nutrition I was omitting by removing most fruits and vegetables from my low carb diet.

It is also dairy free, soy free, gluten free, non GMO, organic and vegan. With this protein powder on hand increasing the protein and nutrients in your Ketogenic smoothies becomes simple.

Tips for making your Coconut Keto Smoothie

  1. This is basically a dump and blend recipe. It couldn’t be any simpler to create a rich and satisfying smoothie fast.
  2. This recipe only calls for 1 scoop of protein powder. (2 is a typical serving.) The smoothie is so rich that 1 scoop definitely fills me up with the other ingredients which are loaded with healthy fats to keep you full.
  3. If you have room in your daily allotment of carbohydrates, feel free to add in 2 scoops of protein powder. Keep in mind this will bring the smoothie’s carbohydrate count to  8 1/2 grams.
