Keto – Vegan Breakfast Smoothie

I have recently been exploring the ketogenic diet and the benefits that it has on my body. After being predominantly vegan for the past 4-6 months it came as a slight shock to see the large amounts of animal products used in majority of the ketogenic recipes. I began to explore plant based – high fat – low carb ingredients and soon after wasn’t short of a tasty list. I thought I would put some of the ingredients to the test to create a delicious vegan- keto breakfast smoothie of my own. After a few trial and error attempts, I now have a pretty pink, tasty smoothie that nourishes my body with healthy fats, is low in sugar and hasn’t harmed any sentient beings in the process. I hope you and your body enjoy this as much as I do!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 scoop organic vegan vanilla protein powder (I use ‘Clean Lean Protein’)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup canned full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Ice cubes to preferred texture

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Blend for 2-3 minutes on high in the blender.
  2. Pour into a glass a top with 1 tbsp of frozen berries and/or 1 tbsp of coconut flakes.

Happy smoothie drinking,
