Low Carb Smoothies!! Keto Smoothie Recipes! #kickstart2019

(upbeat music) – Hey, Munchies, happy Monday. I’m Alyssia if you’re new,
and in case you haven’t heard, I’m hosting new videos
every weekday in January to kickstart your new year, so if you want more content,
be sure to subscribe, and hit the bell, so
you don’t miss anything. Everyone is looking for
smoothies in January, but this year I have had
more request for Keto, and low-carb recipes than ever, so here are some low-carb
smoothie options, because believe it or not, it can be done. Now remember, Keto is a high-fat diet. I have an entire video on
it if you’re interested, so part of how we keep
these smoothies low enough in net carbohydrates is by upping the fat, so these are filling, and
really should be looked at as more of a meal than a snack. Of course at the end of the
day, your Keto diet is up to you and it’s all about your overall ratio of fat to protein and carbohydrates, and your carbohydrate tolerance, so you need to do what works for you. Today I’ve got five low-carb
smoothie recipes in this video, and then three more for a total of eight in the free e-book that you can download using the link in the description box. Let’s start with cucumber,
celery, matcha, lean and green. (upbeat music) In to my blender I add,
baby cucumber, celery, avocado, and coconut or MCT oil. So MCT stands for medium
chain triglyceride, or medium change fatty acids, and it’s a type of fat
derived from coconut oil. It’s colorless, odorless, and stays liquid at room temperature, so a lot of people on a low carb diet add it to
food, coffee, or smoothies to boost the fat content in their diet. It’s easy to digest,
and suppresses hunger. Remember, you really shouldn’t be hungry on a low-carb diet, and it
provides quick, clean energy for your body, and especially your brain. We can all benefit from
MCTs, low-carb or not. I also add matcha powder. Make sure you use a high quality brand, which will mean it’s a vibrant green, and annoyingly expensive. I’ve linked a bran I use
sometimes in the description, but it isn’t my only brand choice, and feel free to add
low-carb friendly sweetener, or stevia drops to taste. Finally, for my liquid,
I add creamy cashew milk, but you can use whatever you prefer. Blend it up. I love the vibrant, and
fresh color and taste Cucumber is always so distinct
to me when it’s in a smoothie and I like it. This smoothie only has
six grams of net carbs, and all of the nutrition
info for all these smoothies can be found in the free
e-book, along with the recipes. Next up, a low carb golden milk smoothie. (upbeat music) I start with coconut milk
from the can, shake it up. Make sure it’s really well integrated, and then add that to an ice cube tray to make coconut milk ice cubes. They may separate a bit while freezing, but it’s no biggie. Just keep those in the freezer for whenever you need them
for smoothies or cooking. Thaw them out for a few minutes before adding to your smoothie. For this smoothie, I add
coconut milk ice cubes with an additional
splash of milk, MCT oil, and remember that can
always be coconut oil, vanilla extract, turmeric for
a nutritious golden boost, cinnamon, ground ginger,
salt, and sweetener to taste. Naturally sweet, cinnamon-y,
and a kick from those spices. I love the creaminess the
coconut milk provides, and this smoothie only has
four grams of net carbs. How about a berries and
cream protein smoothie? (upbeat music) This one starts with frozen raspberries, which are one of the fruits
lowest in carbohydrates, then I add MCT or coconut oil, a scoop of collagen protein powder, optional sweetener to taste,
and low-fat coconut milk. A lot of people are mistaken, and believe that Keto means no fruit. Keto does not mean no fruit, it means very high in fat,
and very low in carbohydrates. We all have a different
carbohydrate tolerance, and the only way to know is to
test your blood ketone levels while tracking your macronutrient intake, so if you can keep your
ratio working for your body, while still eating some fruit, go for it. Some people, most people,
can have some fruit, or at least berries. Probably most people
will have to stay away from higher sugar fruits
like bananas, and mangoes, to keep their carb content down, but it’s mistaken to
say that Keto means no to any specific food. It’s really about the overall
carbohydrate consumption, and fat ratio. This smoothie is creamy,
sweet, with a bit of tang, and I love using collagen protein powder, because the one I use is flavorless, so I don’t even know it’s there. I am not a huge sweetened
protein powder fan, and I do love the joint,
hair, and nail benefits that collagen provides. Okay, bullet-proof smoothie anyone? This cinnamon, almond bullet-proof shake is delicious, and filling. I start with some of those
coconut milk ice-cubes, MCT oil, almond butter,
flax meal, cinnamon, sweetener to taste, a
pinch of salt, and coffee. Blend it all up. Okay, if you want your coffee
boost kicked up a notch, this shake will do it. You’ve got the caffeine from the coffee, the brain boost from the CMTs, and just the invigorating excitement from this being a delicious,
indulgent low-carb shake. Six grams of net carbs,
so much satisfaction. The last one I’m sharing here is perhaps the most desert-like. Surprise, blackberry cheesecake. Frozen blackberries, cream cheese, or if you’re a dairy-free low-carber, you could sue coconut milk, but of course, it won’t have the same cheesecake effect. I have seen a coconut based cream cheese at Trader Joe’s, that could
work, but I haven’t tried it. I’m also adding MCT oil, vanilla extract, optional sweetener, a pinch of salt, coconut milk, and water. This one is the most indulgent. It’s extremely delicious, but it’s also the highest in carbs. There about 10 grams of
net carbs in this smoothie. Keep in mind, some people can handle that. Personally, when I did Keto, and tracked my blood ketone levels, I can handle about 40 to
50 grams of carbs a day, and still remain in ketosis. Some people can only handle 20 or less. It really depends on the person, so if you know this
smoothie won’t work for you, I apologize, but I hope
one of the others will. Remember, I do have three more smoothies in the free e-book that you can download using the link in the description. There is a peppermint protein milkshake, a creamy cashew acai smoothie, and a chocolate macadamia nut, yum. All recipes and nutrition are included. Thanks so much for being here with me. Let me know your favorite
in the comments below. I’ll see ya tomorrow
for a brand new episode, and remember, it’s all a
matter of mind over munch.

  1. โ€œA lot of people think keto means no fruitโ€

    cough, cough Gabbie Hanna cough, cough

    Sorry, just clearing my throat

  2. Keto and all these fad diets are just trash ๐Ÿ—‘. Eat healthy, donโ€™t be gluttonous and youโ€™ll do just fine.

  3. Hi Alyssia. Thank you for the wonderful recipes. I will have to try and get some ingredients Friday when I go shopping

  4. That's not the whole picture though. It's not just about low-carbs, it's about what carbs you eat. Fructose is one of the most "harmful" carbs as it's directly processed by the liver and the uptake is more potent than other types of sugars. Please don't spread misinformation on what keto is or isn't unless you're deep into the lifestyle yourself and widely informed about healthy ways of sticking to it.

  5. Iโ€™m allergic to bananas and its really difficult to find smoothie recipes I can have. I really appreciate this video!

  6. Could i ask if it is possible to change the coconut milk for another milk? Like almonds?
    I do hope so these smoothies look delicious. Hope you find the time to respond

  7. Hello can I supplement the collagen protein powder with another one? For example a keto protein powder? Tysm for sharing they look absolutely delicious I will for sure be making these !!

  8. Now this is what Iโ€™m talkn about Lol thanks soooooo much for this ! I needed this in my life since a lot of time I just want a smoothie and no food at that time! B

  9. I was really skeptical of the spice combo in that golden smoothie but it was the only one I could make with the ingredients I had. I wanted to make a smoothie with my wheatgrass powder which is so gross. I modified it a little but it was amazing. I did coconut cream from a can, ice cubes, wheatgrass powder, collagen powder, and the rest was your ingredients. It tastes so good. Almost like a chai spice smoothie. I'm a fan! ๐Ÿ‘

  10. I'm excited to watch this video 'cause the smoothies I've been making are making me super stomach sick!!

  11. Gurrl I am stealing this phrase from you ANNOYINGLY EXPENSIVE.
    The STRUGGLE is real! ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ˜ป

  12. Careful with the stuff containing tons of oxalates!!! Mixing those in a smoothy is not very smart….this reminds me more about that vegan shit!

  13. I am a sugar addict, and these smoothies will definitely do the trick..thank you..Fell off the wagon .but getting back on slowly and your shakes will do the trick for me..as long as I have healthy delicious substitutes..I'm better than good..again Thank you! Will subscribe..

  14. I am definitely going to make the CINNAMON ALMOND BULLETPROOF SHAKE !! I got the ebook. Thank you!!

  15. Collagen protein powder is nothing but a sales gimmick. People have this misconception that once collagen is ingested it stays in the form of collagen and is used by the body for skin, or hair, etc. However, once collagen protein is ingested, its treated exactly the same as any other protein and is broken down into its constituent amnio acids, so it is not longer collagen. It's a bunch of amnio acids that are then used as the body sees fit. They will be used just the same as any other amino acids. So buying any unflavoured protein powder is just as good. Dont go paying silly money for the stuff.

  16. These recipes look so good! I think I'm going to use frozen coconut milk in all the recipes. What the ninja blender be suitable for all of these recipes? I don't wanna spend too much money buying an expensive blender that I don't need

  17. Love these! I will definitely use them on a weekly basis, I would love if it had a little more measurements

  18. With the keto diet , don't you eat high fat in the morning, then taper down throughout the day so your body has to use stored fat ?

  19. I made my version of your berry smoothie and it tastes like strawberry ice cream! Gave you a shout out too if you want to check it out:)

  20. I want to make these but I'm allergic to all nuts๐Ÿ˜Ÿ that includes alot of oils, flours, and milks I can't use๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  21. Matcha powder is finely ground green tea leaves, you can make it at home from a good brand green tea leaves, just make sure you grind it properly. No rocket science there.
    Beautiful recipes, thank you.
