A smoothie is a fantastic option for a quick breakfast or snack. Not only are they fast to make, they are also nutritious.
It is common for smoothies to contain fruit that is high in carbs. To keep the carbs reduced, it is important to reduce the amount of fruit you use and to choose lower carb fruits such as berries.
There are plenty of variations you can make to this recipe. To add more nutritional value, you could add a handful of greens such as spinach. You could also add a mixture of berries such as blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.
For chocolate lovers such as myself, you can add 1-2tbsp of cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder to the smoothie.
To turn this smoothie into a milkshake, you could add 1-2 scoops of low carb ice cream or mix in some whipped cream until you reach the desired consistency.
