I live in a green area and it's the time of year that blackberries are abundant — they grow everywhere! They are my favourite fruit and also happen to be very low in carbs. There were so many that I now have more than two kilos in my freezer — perfect for when they are not so plentiful.
If you are more sensitive to carbs, you should always eat berries with some protein and fat — this will help you avoid insulin spikes. Add a handful of almonds or macadamia nuts or even a cup of full-fat Greek yogurt. Protein and fat will help you stay fuller for longer and make this dip the ideal keto-friendly snack.
Here is a quick overview of the net carbs in 1/2 cup of all berries in case you want to try them:
- strawberries: 4.1 g
- raspberries: 3.3 g
- blackberries: 3.1 g
- blueberries: 8.9 g (wild blueberries have less carbs, ~ 7.3 g)
Serving size 4 tbsp/ 65 g/ 2.3 oz
