Pour your favorite keto smoothie in a bowl, top with low-carb treats, and lets get to enjoying some breakfast!
This keto recipe is one of my favorites from my book, The Keto Diet Cookbook. It’s got everything you need in a meal – protein, fat, and a touch of carbohydrates leading to the perfect macro percentages.
All of the ingredients in this keto smoothie are thoughtfully added to benefit the body – collagen that’s shown to boost digestive health, apple cider vinegar that helps promote clear skin, chia seeds for clear energy throughout the day, and MCTs to bump up fat burning.
Cheers to that!
You’ll notice that today’s recipe is dairy-free, as are all of the keto recipes on this website!
While I don’t personally consume dairy for a bunch of reasons, if you like dairy, feel free to add it to this, or any keto breakfast of your choosing.
Why don’t I include dairy on my keto diet? Fun fact: humans are the only mammals on the planet to drink milk after infancy, not to mention consuming the milk from another mammal – a milk that’s meant to grow a baby sheep, cow or goat to their full size, quickly.
If you’re having issues losing weight on keto, the first place I recommend you look is your dairy consumption.
If you’re in love with dairy and can’t give it up, but feel it may be contributing to imbalances in your body, look for dairy sources from A2 casein, which may not affect you as much, or at all.
The key to success on your ketogenic diet is individualizing it for you, and your needs. But what steps do you take to start to understand what works and what doesn’t? This was the driving force behind my newest book.
Last book I wrote, I went on an epic 38-city book tour but many of you were bummed that I didn’t make it to your city. So, for the launch of The Keto Diet Cookbook and Keto for Women, I’m doing a VIRTUAL book tour!
That means that no matter where ya are, we can hang out!
Join me throughout the week for live events on Instagram and YouTube. Be sure to follow me and you’ll get alerts when I go live from now to the end of June. See ya there!
OK let’s get to smoothie eatin’
Do you enjoy dairy on your keto diet? Have you eliminated it and discovered removing it from your diet was the best thing you ever did for your keto results? Next time you snap a pic of your results, tag me – @healthfulpursuit.
