This keto-friendly smoothie makes a fantastic and quick breakfast for those on-the-go mornings. Not only is this recipe keto-friendly, it is also vegan and dairy free and contains tons of good things which will give you a natural and extended energy boost without any added sugars or sweeteners.
I discovered this recipe when trying out the hybrid diet and wanted something for those mornings when I had to rush out the door and didn’t have time to cook or prepare something complicated (story of my life). This recipe really hit the spot and left me feeling both full and energised.
In terms of health benefits, this smoothie is all over it. If you are using it as part of a keto diet the L-Theanine in the matcha supercharges your metabolism and the MCT oil is known to help with weight loss. MCT oil is also good for lowering cholesterol and blood sugar levels. In addition, the matcha and blueberries make it high in anti-oxidants, and the nut content provides proteins which are high in energy.
One of my favourite things about this smoothie is that it can be taken with you, perfect for a breakfast on those on-the-go mornings or taking to the gym for that extra boost. I also use this recipe for a lunchtime hit of goodness, which absolutely staves off the afternoon slump.
- 250ml almond milk
- 1 dessert spoon of peanut butter
- 6 walnuts
- 1 dessert spoon of MCT oil
- A handful of spinach
- A handful of blueberries
- A handful of raspberries
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon of ginger
- ½ teaspoon of Kineta Matcha
- Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend, blend, blend!
Yes, it’s that simple!
Switch up the recipe: I used fresh fruit in this recipe, but you can use frozen fruit, or another great alternative is cacao powder, just use a dessert spoon full instead of the fruit. I always use the organic, raw cacao powder (no messing around) as it’s utterly delicious. You can also decorate with nuts /fruit/seeds to make it look puuuuurdy!
