Our youngest girl kept raving about this “keto” she was getting into. You can’t imagine the drop I was feeling by the second day. And by Week 2? My pants were loose!… Feels so good.
This is another vegan and Paleo friendly smoothie recipe.
It is a completely sugar free and sweetener free shake, so may not be to everyone’s liking.
The coconut does give it a hint of sweetness and the ginger gives it a little bit of a kick, breaking the strong taste of kale.
The coconut and almond milk gives it a fair amount of good fat.
The net carbs may be relatively high though. Just showing that fruit and sugar sugar free doesn’t necessarily mean low carb.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (substitute your favorite non-dairy milk)
1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
4 cups chopped kale (you can also do a mix of spinach & kale)
1/4 cup ground coconut (unsweetened)
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled (optional–skip it if you don’t like the taste of ginger)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or Celtic sea salt if you have it–it’s rich in beneficial minerals!)
1 cup ice
Pour almond and coconut milk into base of blender, followed by ginger, kale, ground coconut, salt, and ice.
Puree until very smooth. (I have a professional style Ninja blender so this only takes 1 minute for me, but with a standard blender you may need to let this go about 3-5 minutes.)
