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.
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 12.9 g of net Carbs per 100 g, 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, you can also use:
- strawberries: 70 g/ 2.5 oz
- raspberries: 70 g/ 2.5 oz
- blackberries: 90 g/ 3.2 oz
- blueberries: 30 g/ 1.1 oz
- kiwi fruit: 30 g/ 1.1 oz
Serving size 1 smoothie
