Liquid

This is the base component of your smoothie. In following with keto goals, the choice should avoid high sugar options such as orange juice. The choice can include high-fat. So for example choosing a low fat almond milk is not necessary and instead, coconut cream would be appropriate and add to the creaminess of the smoothie. Examples are:

  • Coconut cream

  • Unsweetened coconut milk

  • Cashew nut / seed milk

  • Water

  • Tea

  • Coffee

Fat

These help to make the smoothie creamy. They also provide essential energy sources. Keep in mind though that the fats you consume can take away from the fats you burn if you become carried away.

  • Avocado

  • Coconut oil

  • MCT oil

  • Cashew cream

  • Coconut cream

  • Avocado oil

  • Raw eggs

  • Coconut yogurt

  • Almond butter

Flavors

These are in addition to or as an alternative to the basic smoothie recipe.

  • Unsweetened vanilla extract

  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Flavored cooking extracts (no sugar added)

  • Coffee

  • Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries

    Spices could include:

  • Matcha

  • Cinnamon

  • Tumeric

Nutrients

These pack in more nutrients addressing a wider range of biological needs and helping in those situations where cooking is difficult. Do remember though that no supplements can take the place of Whole Foods in terms of having the complete combination of vitamins, minerals, fats and enzymes.
