It is the final day of Berry Week! *whew*
This week, June 15-19, 2020, we celebrated all things Berry. Yum!
Whether you prefer strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries or huckleberries, there was a recipe for you!
If it’s a berry, we had you covered this week!
From delicious ways to start your day – breakfast and smoothies, to snacks, desserts and everything else in between.
Berry recipes were plentiful this week! The perfect way to kick off summer (the first day of summer is technically tomorrow, the 20th of June).
Let’s talk about these Strawberry Avocado Smoothies.
Smoothies are incredibly simple. You kinda just drop ingredients into a blender and blend.
What you get at the end is a creamy, cold, refreshing but usually pretty healthy beverage.
In this case, VERY healthy without any additions.
These are literally a favorite way to start the day.
What ingredients do I need for this smoothie recipe?
The main component for me, and why I make these, are absolutely the avocados.
Avocados are a low carb fruit and rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals.
They contain the healthy fats our body needs. Not to mention plenty of fiber.
But it’s not just about the nutritional aspects of this incredible fruit, it’s also about the perfectly creamy texture that this Strawberry Avocado Smoothie has because of the addition of avocado.
We add strawberries to our smoothies for the delicious flavor and natural sweetness they provide.
Look for fresh strawberries that are plenty ripe and sweet. Freeze them for at least 3-4 hours before you want to make these.
We make up smoothie bags that we can just freeze and then grab and dump into the blender when we want a smoothie.
If you want a different fruit, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc. are perfect choices.
I don’t usually add a liquid to this recipe.
But many people find it too thick for their liking, so adding a little milk can help.
You can also use a keto friendly milk option like almond milk or cashew milk.
Water and Coconut Water are also all easy choices.
Only add a little at a time until it’s your desired thickness.
I do not sweeten this recipe. But you CAN!
Mostly because for me the banana and strawberries add plenty of flavor and sweetness.
Raw Honey, splenda and other such options keep the smoothie on the healthier side.
You can add sugar as well, but understand that changes the nutrition factor.
Is this a keto friendly smoothie? How do I make this keto friendly?
Actually no. Because of the addition of the banana, and the high carbs in a banana, this is not actually keto approved.
However if you leave the banana out, and add more of the other fruit, you have yourself a keto friendly smoothie.
Also, according to Healthline, you can add unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, macadamia nut milk, flax milk, soy milk, cashew milk, and pea milk.
Half-and-half and heavy cream are also keto-friendly milk options.
