Avocado is great if you’re on the keto diet and makes a great addition to a keto green smoothie. It’s one of the healthiest low carb fruits loaded with vitamins and minerals. Aside from fiber, potassium, and folate, it’s also rich in Vitamins C, E, K and Vitamin B1, B2 and a whole lot of B-vitamins! Having net carbs of only 2 grams in every 100 grams, avocado is definitely on top of the list of acceptable foods for a ketogenic diet.
Making a smoothie out of avocados is a great way to jumpstart your day. Packed with superfoods, this keto green smoothie with blueberries and avocado is a great breakfast option for those on a keto diet. Since it’s low in carbs and high in healthy fats, potassium and magnesium, this smoothie recipe from Elizabeth Krenke can also help to prevent keto flu.
