Smoothies are great for breakfast on those days you don't have time to cook. They take just a few minutes to prepare and don't require any cooking skills.
This keto smoothie is not only delicious but ultra low in carbs! It's boosted with MCTs and extra protein that will keep you full for longer. If you don't want to use eggs or dairy, I included several alternatives that work equally well. Enjoy!
If you can't eat eggs or don't want to eat raw eggs, here are some other options:
- Instead or eggs, you can use 1 tbsp chia seeds or 1-2 tbsp coconut butter or almond butter
- Instead of whey protein powder, you can use collagen, egg white protein powder (Jay Robb) or plant-based NuZest
- Apart from vanilla extract, you can add cinnamon or other sugar-free extracts such as cherry, almond and orange
How to Make Raw Eggs Safe to Consume
If a recipe calls for raw eggs and you are concerned about the potential risk of Salmonella, you can make it safe by using pasteurized eggs.
To pasteurize eggs at home, simply pour enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs. Heat to about 60 °C/ 140 °F. Using a spoon, slowly place the eggs into the saucepan. Keep the eggs in the water for about 3 minutes. This should be enough to pasteurize the eggs and kill any potential bacteria. Let the eggs cool down and store in the fridge for 6-8 weeks.
