This almond butter keto smoothie inspired me so much in my health journey that I almost feel obligated to include it in my recipes collection. It was the first smoothie I liked so much that I decided to photograph it. What followed were over 150 different smoothie recipes … and unique photo sessions.
It was mid-October, I was making my smoothies for around two weeks now and I was just getting the hang of it. I knew my way around the fridge, I already had around 10 smoothies under my belt and I was just started to understand what works and what doesn’t combine great in a smoothie.
Here are a few reasons to try it out. It’s:
Low-Carb and Keto friendly
Fun to make
Simple. Delicious. Healthy.
This smoothie is simply delicious and very easy to make, especially since the ingredients list is pretty thin. The recipe doesn’t call for leafy greens or other “strange” veggies, this makes a great smoothie for the beginner smoothie hero.
Some of you might say that it’s a bit low on veggies, but who says that all smoothies should be about veggies, right? Yes, it may have low on veggies but it’s not too sweet either, plus it’s thick and creamy and tastes a bit like almonds.
This recipe is based on banana, avocado and almond butter, but I’ve also included carrots, hemp protein, dark chocolate. But it wouldn’t be complete without a pinch of Himalayan salt and a few basil leaves to give it that special “green” touch.
I like this smoothie simply because it has that creamy consistency and an ok mix of nutrients. It’s easy to make, low-carb and keto friendly, delicious and will keep hunger away for at least a few hours (especially if you’re fat adapted). All in all this makes for a great smoothie recipe that doesn’t take too much time to make.
If you’re a beginner in all things smoothies, this recipe can work great for you. If you already have a few smoothies under your belt, you may find it interesting and refreshing.
