I’m all about the smoothies. This keto Strawberry and Basil Smoothie is delicious for breakfast and if like me you prefer to have no sweeteners as well as no sugar, you might like this recipe.

Sweetened naturally just with strawberries. It’s creamy, it’s dreamy and it’s also dairy free. Feel free to add any of the optional extras: MCT oil for extra fats and energy boost, and collagen or protein powder for extra protein to keep hunger at bay and your blood sugar levels healthy.

We love the strawberry-basil combination! It works well in both savoury and sweet keto recipes, like Grilled Halloumi With Strawberry & Cucumber Salsa and Low-Carb Berry Caprese Salad. My favourite is the frozen strawberry & basil fat bomb from the Fat Bombs Book!

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.

This sounds delicious. I have basil essential oil, how many drops would replace the leaves? Thanks

I'd say 1 drop? I haven't used it yet but I know that essential oils are very strong.
