Fruit-free Keto Green Smoothie with Smooth Hemp Protein

by October 8, 2019

Fruit-free Green Smoothie Recipe

 A low-carbohydrate, keto, fruit-reduced green smoothie.

Have you added collagen to a smoothie before? It incorporates wonderfully, and there’s no taste. Now, originally, this recipe used hemp protein (making it vegan) but the hemp protein was discontinued. So, I’ve had to switch it up a little, using collagen. If you still want to keep the smoothie vegan, you can use a vegan protein powder of your choice.

The key to success in my ketosis journey has been getting creative with blended drinks. You can add SO many more healthy keto fats to a blended coffee or smoothie than you could eat in an entire days worth of keto meals. That’s how this keto smoothie recipe came about. It can pack about 1/3 of your daily fat requirements, if that’s what you’re into. It’s low in carbs, keto, low in sugar with a moderate amount of protein. Perfecto!

Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.

If you’re rockin’ the ketosis like me, add 1-2 tablespoons of MCT oil, 1-2 tablespoons of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Oil or flavored fish oil, and/or a handful of raw macadamia nuts or sunflower seeds to this smoothie to make it a keto Fat Bomb! Otherwise, follow the recipe below and check out the nutritional information (once on page, scroll down) if it interests you.

Yes, avocados and lemons are technically considered “fruits”, so this smoothie isn’t exactly “fruit-free” but it’s very close to it and only contains a touch of overall sugar ;)
