Easter Smoothie is my second Easter recipe. Although it's green, there are no vegetables included (avocado is technically a fruit). It's very rich in fiber, high-quality protein and slightly higher in carbs, so it's ideal as a pre/post-workout snack or as part of Targeted Ketogenic Diet.

Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).
Making this smoothie is very simple: halve and scoop out the avocado and place in a blender with peeled melon, kiwi berries and the rest of the ingredients.
Blend until smooth. That's it!
Never heard of kiwi berries?
As I love trying out new ingredients, I recently discovered kiwi berries. Kiwi berries are small green berries that look just like very small kiwi fruit. These sweet berries are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. They contain 12.9g of Net Carbs per 100g, which is similar to kiwi fruit or blueberries. As you already know, fruits should be consumed with caution on a low-carb diet. However, they are one of the best ingredient for pre/post-workout meals, especially for those engaged in TKD (Targeted Ketogenic Diet).
Kiwi berries may not be easy to find. Instead of kiwi berries, for the amount used in this recipe, you can also use:
- strawberries: 70g / 2.5 oz
- raspberries: 70g / 2.5 oz
- blackberries: 90g / 3.2 oz
- blueberries: 30g / 1 oz
- kiwi fruit: 30g / 1 oz
Using these substitutes will have the same impact on Net Carbs and overall nutritional values.
