Low carb strawberry smoothie
- 1¾ cups 425 ml unsweetened coconut milk
- 5 oz. 140 g fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 tbsp 1 tbsp lime juice
- ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Using canned coconut milk (drain off the liquid) makes a creamier, more satisfying smoothie.
- Add more lime juice if you like.
Tip from our Dietitian
If enjoying this smoothie for breakfast we recommend increasing the protein for a more filling and nutritious meal.
If you tolerate dairy, replace the coconut milk with greek yogurt and add 2 tbsp whey protein isolate per serving. Add some water for a runnier consistency if needed.
If you don't eat dairy products, eat a couple of eggs on the side.
They all look great and I will be making all of them soon.
We have some of it. :)
If you hover your mouse over the symbol for "Strict/Moderate/Liberal Low Carb" on the pictures for all our recipes then you will get the nutritional facts.
The amount of displayed carbs is net carbs (Total amount of carbs - fiber).
Heavy cream should be fine... (but it's still liberal low carb, I would be a bit careful with it if your goal is weight-loss.)
If you look at the carb content, full fat milk and coconut milk have about the same so from that perspective it should be OK. But this is liberal low carb and look att the serving size, one serving is quite small. So if you are going for weight-loss don't drink to much of it...
Shouldn't it be liquid in mls and fruit in grams.
Is this recipe correct, before I convert it??
We have not tested the recipe with adding protein powder. If you are using a protein powder, make sure and avoid any kind of artificial sweeteners.
Unsweetened almond milk will work as well!
Coconut cream should work fine in this recipe.
The bottle should note the conversion. Without seeing the label or knowing the product, I am not able to advise.
Yes, almond milk will work well also. It may not be as thick as the coconut cream.
Yes, that would be fine!
