Keto Almond & Maca Smoothie

|Keto Almond & Maca Smoothie

Keto smoothies are perfect for those of us with busy lifestyles! This smoothie contains my favourite supplement and an ingredient I use in smoothies on a regular basis - maca powder.

So what is maca?

Just like turmeric, maca is a powerful adaptogen that will help you adapt to - and avoid - damage from environmental factors, like stress, diet, and toxins. It's high in phytochemicals, it will boost your energy levels, strengthen your immune system, and increase stamina and libido.

I can't find collagen, can I use something different?

You could use regular gelatin powder, or protein powder (up to 1/4 cup), or ground chia seeds (1 tbsp).

Would fresh raw milk work in place of the almond milk?  We have cows and it would seem silly to buy almond milk.

It depends... Most people avoid milk because it's relatively high in carbs. If that's not an issue for you, then you could use full-fat milk from grass-fed cows. Keep in mind that 3/4 cup of full-fat milk contains 8-9 grams of carbs (almond milk is low in carbs and low in fat).
