I’m always looking for ways to fuel my body. It’s not always easy to get in my daily dose of veggies, but this low-carb smoothie really helps. Not only that but I really do enjoy the flavor and taste.
The added avocado creamed with the spinach makes fun a bright and fun color while the sweetener and almond milk take it into more of that milkshake texture that I prefer.
The great part about making this keto smoothie is that it’s literally guilt-free. I also love that when I’m running late in the morning, I can fill my mug or cup and run out the door. This makes it totally versatile and portable to get a flavorful drink that will give me the energy I need to power through the day.
TO MAKE A KETO GREEN SMOOTHIE YOU WILL NEED:
- spinach – Wash the leaves before adding to the blender.
- avocado – Chop it up into bite-sized pieces.
- Lemon juice – Fresh lemon juice will work or you can buy in a bottle and use that as well.
- Erythritol or any sweetener – Just a little bit of sweetness is perfect.

Do green smoothies really help you lose weight?
As with anything, you need to make sure what you’re putting into your body is good and healthy. My motto in life is that all things need to happen with moderation.
The best thing about drinking smoothies is that you’re fueling your body with healthy ingredients to give yourself a boost. If you can replace your sugar intake with fruits and veggies, your body has to react in a positive way!
What happens when you drink a green smoothie everyday?
You’ll notice health benefits right away! Your energy level should go up and more than likely, you’re going to start noticing little differences about your body.
You might have some more shine to your hair, you may notice that your skin is starting to glow a bit, and you may also notice that you’re not quite as tired as you used to be. All good things!
What is the best time to drink green smoothies?
You can really drink a smoothie with fruits and veggies anytime that you want but most people prefer to drink them for breakfast or for a boost of energy after a workout.
If you’re wanting to lose weight, adding an avocado smoothie as a meal replacement option for lunch can be a great choice as well.
Can you live off green smoothies?
Probably. But should you? Probably not. Even though the smoothies are totally healthy, you need to make sure that you’re getting a balanced diet throughout the rest of your day.
What should you not mix in a smoothie?
The biggest thing to avoid adding to your smoothies is sugar! Why add in something that you’re trying to limit or cut out?
Is it bad to put a banana in a smoothie?
Even though bananas are fruit, remember that they’re high in natural sugars. You can put one in your smoothie if you’d like to, but this is why I opt for avocado in my smoothie instead.
Avocados are superfoods and help to make this smoothie nice and creamy. Add in one and see what you think. The great things about smoothies are that you can change up the ingredients easily until you find what you like.
