If you are like me, you want to enjoy seasonal fruits and vegetables low in carbs. Summer berries are great low-carb options for anyone who doesn't want to give up fruits completely. So, if you are looking for something different than eggs & bacon for breakfast, these keto smoothies are definitely worth trying.
If you can't get fresh berries, use frozen. If you can't get blackcurrants, I included some alternatives to choose from at the end of this post :-)
You can use any berries — strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries — all are low in carbs! Feeling hungry? Add a scoop ( 1/4 cup) of vanilla or plain whey protein or egg white protein powder (Jay Robb) or plant-based such as NuZest. Protein is the most sating nutrient and will keep hunger at bay!
If you don't have blackberries, use raspberries or blackberries. Here is a quick overview of the net carbs in 1/2 cup of berries:
- strawberries: 4.1 g
- raspberries: 3.3 g
- blackberries: 3.1 g
- blueberries: 8.9 g (wild blueberries have less carbs, ~ 7.3 g)
- blackcurrants: 4 g
