The keto diet involves dramatically decreasing your intake of carbs and instead getting most of your calories from fat. 

If you need a break from eating eggs every morning then you can also try the smoothie route. Since the keto diet limits carbs, smoothies that contain high-carb ingredients like fruits, yogurt, honey, and milk don’t usually fit into this style of eating. Well, not these recipes! 

Luckily, with a little creativity and nutritional strategy, you can whip up a nutrient-dense keto smoothie that’s just as easy and flavorful as your old faves.

These recipes are perfect for a quick breakfast or a post-workout refuel option.

Friendly tips: Always use fresh fruits & vegetables, and natural lemon juice instead of artificial juice. Wash them thoroughly to remove pesticides, dirt, and wax. To make the smoothies as healthy as possible used filtered water and organic fruits.

If you don’t have any MCT oil that’s totally fine, you can replace this with coconut oil, or any fat you like. 

For the Blueberries option, any berry will work (blackberry, raspberry, strawberry) and will have a similar carbohydrate content. You can replace the blueberries for any other berries to get different flavors every day.

For my smoothies I always prefer to use unsweetened almond milk, but you can replace it for unsweetened coconut milk or pea milk. Just find milk you like, and use that.

Last but not least, enjoy!
