Typically, smoothies and milkshakes are packed with sugar from high carb fruits such as bananas and added sugar from traditional sweeteners. Did you know that frozen zucchini can be used instead of bananas? Unlike bananas, which are high in carbs and would spike your blood sugar levels, zucchini is the perfect alternative that will make your breakfast smoothies just as creamy and delicious but without the carbs—ingenious!
Zucchini will make this smoothie not just super creamy but will also more nutritious because it's a good source of potassium, just like avocados. Finally, cocoa powder is high in magnesium - an electrolyte most commonly deficient in modern diets. Just one serving of this keto-friendly smoothie will cover half of your daily electrolyte intake.
We all have different dietary needs and follow different keto macros so if you need to tweak the recipe, I included a few suggestions and alternatives below.
- 1-2 tbsp collagen powder for extra protein
- 1 tbsp MCT oil for healthy fats and energy boost
- pinch of cinnamon, vanilla or cayenne pepper for flavor kick
- substitute the almond milk with part coconut milk and water for extra fats
