5 Keto Smoothies That Will Help You Lose Weight – Beauty And Health


5 Keto Smoothies That Will Help You Lose Weight,
So much fat, so few carbs. Smoothies are kind of amazing. They’re a quick and easy way to grab some
food when you’re on the go, they help you get a bunch of nutrients at once, and, of
course, they taste pretty awesome. But when you’re on a high-fat, low-carb
diet like keto, it’s natural to wonder if you can even have smoothies. After all, plenty of them are loaded up with
fruit, juice, milk, and other ingredients that aren’t exactly keto-friendly. Luckily, plenty of culinary creatives have
come up with delicious and nutritious keto smoothie recipes. What do they have in common? They’re packed with heart-healthy polyunsaturated
and monounsaturated fats from whole, healthy foods, says NYC nutritionist Gina Keatley,
C.D.N. Think: raw nut butters, coconut oil, chia
seeds, and other fat-filled yummies. But what about the carbs and sugar? Don’t worry, they’re also low-carb, and most
of the carbs they do pack from from fiber, says Keatley. Apart from helping you stay fuller, longer,
aiding in digestion, and even boosting your heart health, fiber can also help keto dieters
meet their macro goals. Here’s why: While you should cap your daily
carb intake at 50 grams on a keto diet, you still need to get between 20 and 30 of those
grams from fiber. So, yeah, fiber works to your advantage. Ready to start sipping? We scrolled through Instagram to find the
keto smoothie recipes you need to double tap. Even better, they are all nutritionist approved. 1. GREEN MEAN MACHINE SMOOTHIE. This recipe from @lyl_lisa combines avocado,
kale, spinach, chard, broccoli, stevia, coconut milk, cream, macadamia nut oil, avocado oil,
and vanilla protein. If you don’t have those particular oils
on hand, Keatley says canola, olive, safflower, sunflower, and peanut oil can also do the
trick. “Even though these fats are in the same
family, the chemical makeup is different and variety is key with a diet like this,” she
says. 2. BLUEBERRY ALMOND SHAKE. Try this recipe from @therealhealthkitchen:
Blend together a small amount of organic blueberries, unsweetened almond milk, raw almond butter,
and MCT oil. Yes, it has a little bit of blueberries (which
have sugar), but it’s good as an occasional treat when you just need something sweet,
Keatley says. 3. STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE. For this smoothie, @positivelydiesel mixes
vegan Strawberry Shakeology, unsweetened almond or hemp milk, raw organic coconut oil, and
turmeric root. Strawberry Shakeology has about a third of
your daily allotment of carbs, so if you want to spend that elsewhere, Keatley recommends
swapping in a sugar-free whey protein powder and adding some Splenda for sweetness. 4. LEAN MEAN & GREEN KETO SMOOTHIE. This recipe from @mindmeetsbody__keto simply
calls for avocado, MCT oil, and coconut cream. The smoothie is great for people who need
a little more bulk in their diet, Keatley says. “If you’re needing to put down some more
calories, this is a good option,” she adds. 5. KETO CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE. This recipe from @youketo lets you get a little
taste of sweetness without blowing your macros. Mix coconut milk, zucchini, romaine lettuce,
spinach, chia seeds, avocado, cacao powder, cocoa powder, and monkfruit sweetener for
a tasty treat. This recipe keeps your carb count low thanks
to all the green veggies. The cacao powder is also a good way to get
some protein and flavor in without adding carbs, she says.
