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 changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This smoothie is absolutely delicious!! I added a bit of stevia extract but I don't think it needs it. This will serve as my go-to smoothie. Yummy and filling, and I may try to make it even creamier.

Can I use  protein  pea powder instead?

Reply

Yes you can, Nuzest is a good option.

Good recipe, I will try. My coconut oil is always hard, what can i do?

Reply

You can use coconut oil, even if it's not melted, as long as you blend it well 😊

I’m just starting out with the keto diet for health reasons. Maca powder seems to be high in carbohydrate. 100 g of Maca powder contains 60.9 g of carbohydrate and only 10 g of protein. Is this any good for the keto diet?!

Reply

Yes, it is relatively high in carbohydrates but you can use it because you will only need a small amount. It is meant to be used as a supplement. The health benefits outweigh the carb content 😊

Is there a substitute for maca powder? I live outside the US and do not have access to it.

Reply

You can use other "superfood" supplements such as lucuma powder, turmeric, baobab powder, etc. I hope this helps!

Reply

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

Reply

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

Reply

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

Reply

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).
