Smoothie Recipe: Sugar-Free Chocolate Chai Blend
We bet you think you can’t have smoothies while on a keto diet. Actually, all you need is the right ingredients to craft a nutritious low-carb smoothie!
Most fruits, like strawberries and bananas, can be high in natural sugar and carbs. Luckily, a lot of high-fiber and low-sugar fruits and vegetables can be found in any grocery store. Some of these include avocados, asparagus, cauliflower, chia seeds, and berries.
How about a chocolate smoothie with tantalizing warm flavors? This recipe is what keto dreams are made of!
Smoothie Ingredient Breakdown
Chai Fiber Powder: Fiber is an essential nutrient for everyone’s diet! Especially those who avoid complex carbohydrates, where most fibrous foods are found. This is why sugar-free fiber supplements like Naturlax are super useful!
Studies have shown diets like keto, lead to a drop in a person’s gut flora composition. This means people who follow keto are unlikely to have a thriving gut composition. This matters since our guts support our immune system, mood, and mental health.
Protein Powder: When combined with fiber, protein powders provide satiety to your smoothies to keep you energized throughout your day. Of course, protein provides other benefits like muscle toning, perfect to complement your exercise routine.
Avocado: They are powerful fruits with a lot of fiber and healthy fats. Plus, avocados add a delicious creamy texture to your smoothies! A great low carb and high fiber addition to your blended beverage.
Natural Cocoa Powder: Cocoa powder adds rich flavor to sweet treats. If you’ve ever baked a sugar-free dessert, then you know this powder can really make the recipe pop! Also, this is another keto-friendly ingredient with healthy fats and fiber!
Almond Milk: Don’t forget to use unsweetened almond milk to keep the smoothie sugar-free. It helps to read the nutrition facts of the label just to be safe.
Nutmeg and Cinnamon: Since we used a Chai Flavor Fiber Powder, throwing in additional warm spices will elevate the chai flavor!
