No Sugar (keto) Green Smoothie

greensmoothie

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

As I have said many times before, most smoothies are packed with sugars. Yes that whole banana you put in there weighs in at a whopping 27 grams of carbs (think cake) and 15 grams of sugar. A banana is dessert. I created this alkalizing smoothie for days when I am too hot to cook, but want to feel satisfied. It is meant to give your body nourishing fats that makes us have more energy and feel nourished. I also have a strawberry recipe you can try here.

Ingredients: 

  • 1.5 cups coconut milk

  • ½ avocado, pitted

  • 1 nub of ginger, peeled (use the back of a spoon to easily peel)

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • ½ cup frozen riced cauliflower (Trader Joes and Costco sell it frozen)

  • 2 teaspoons moringa powder ( I use Kuli Kuli)

  • 1 tablespoon XCT oil or Brain octane ( to help burn fat and increase brain function)

  • Optional- 2 scoops collagen powder

  • 10-20 drops liquid stevia (optional) or 1/2 teaspoon monkfruit sugar

  • ½ cup of ice

    Method:

    • Add all the ingredients and blend on high until smooth.

    • Pour into a glass.

    • Sip and enjoy!

    Note: Do not blend collagen in, just pulse to mix.

Strawberry Moringa Mint Smoothie

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

This low sugar, keto (high-fat) smoothie is my go to in summer. When I see strawberries at the market I will freeze half for my on the go lunch or snack (depending on my workout). Because of the healthy fats from the coconut, MCT oil and chia seeds, this smoothie keeps you full and satisfied. Cauliflower is my secret to a creamy consistency without the high sugar and carb from the traditional banana used in most smoothie recipes. Try adding a scoop of collagen or protein to up the protein as well.

Mint Chip Smoothie

Mint Chip Smoothie

I worked on this recipe all summer last year, I needed to replicate what I was tasting in juice bars in order to create "mint chocolate chip" but healthy of course. After working at Rancho La Puerta and  completing their summer juice and smoothie menu, I realized I couldn't get the flavor profile I wanted without the banana and date combo. Try this on a summer day, and boy does it take you back to the good ol minty chocolate ice cream, but WAY healthier of course.
