Keto Kiwi & Avocado Smoothie: Perfect for on the go!

If I know I won’t have time to sit and eat breakfast I will quickly blitz one of these up and put it in my flask for a keto breakfast on the go.

I also love this smoothie on a summer’s days when I have time to spare.

I will sit in the garden taking in the morning sun sipping one of these for breakfast; it almost feels civilized.

Guilt-free keto smoothie

I have always loved smoothies. I used to be guilty of drinking these on the run thinking that I was being ‘good’.

Initially, I would feel great, and then crash, looking for my next sugar fix.

In order for keto to work for me, I had to work out how to make wonderful tasting smoothies.

These provide me with an ‘on the go’ option for busier days. Keto smoothies are also a perfect keto breakfast alternative.

This keto kiwi & avocado smoothie does not disappoint.

It is low in carbs so can fit within your macros without spiking blood sugar and knocking you out of ketosis.

The Health Benefits of Kiwi on Keto

The kiwi gives a burst of freshness and summer that you sometimes just need.

The best bit?

Kiwi is packed with vitamin C. One kiwi has approximately the same amount as orange AND more potassium than a banana.

Kiwi fruit is also packed with antioxidants which have numerous health benefits.

Most importantly – they are really delicious!!

Avocados are like marmite, people love or hate them.

Even if you are a ‘hater’ try this smoothie. It’s very different to eating them in their original form and combined with the almond milk the make for the smoothest, creamiest texture in this keto smoothie.

It makes the drink feel very creamy and decadent!

The Milk for Your Keto Smoothie

For this recipe, I use almond milk.

Almond milk is sold in most supermarkets. Be careful to look at the nutritional value on the back as some varieties (even the unsweetened ones) will have carbs in them or non-keto friendly sugars.

Keep looking and you will find ones with <0.5 grams per 100ml.

Over the years I’ve done a lot of research into this to find the best value products, I am currently looking at creating a ‘keto pantry’ with all of these ingredients listed to save you time.

If you are short on cash, or just living a frugal lifestyle, check out our article on how to do Keto On A Budget and Keto Hacks, they will save you time and money.

There are several guides on how to make almond milk at home – I haven’t tried this yet – there are only so many hours in a day!

If you try one though let me know how it goes and how long it takes – I am interested to know as it is something I intend to try at some point.

The Sweetener

This recipe doesn’t specifically have sweeter added as the sweetness comes from the kiwi and the vanilla protein powder.

I find that this protein powder is not only low in carbs – but it tastes good too, making it the perfect ingredient to add to a smoothie.

However, if you do have a sweeter tooth, powdered erythritol to taste would be the perfect addition to this keto smoothie.

Erythritol goes well in smoothies as it blends in without leaving a gritty or powdery taste as I’ve experienced with other sweeteners. Another alternative? Why not try adding a teaspoon of Skinny Syrup to up the sweetness?

Skinny Syrups contain sucralose which studies have shown does not spike the blood sugar levels, making it keto-friendly.

I personally use this or some vanilla protein powder, in my full fat Greek yoghurt to make it into a beautifully creamy vanilla yoghurt as well as in my coffee.

How to Make This Gorgeous Kiwi & Avocado Smoothie

It really is simple – I just place all of the ingredients in your Nutibullet and blend!

If you don’t have a Nutibullet any blender will do.

Nutribullet cups are also travel proof – so I don’t end up with my handbag swimming in a smoothie!  

If I’m going to freeze this for another day I will pop it in my flask and freeze. I’ll take it out of the freezer a few hours before I want to drink it or the night before and place it in the fridge so it doesn’t get too warm!
