I created this smoothie recipe specially for all you low carb fans. Its a challenge to make a low carb smoothie and have it taste great. I “cheated” for this one and used stevia. Are you concerned about stevia? Please don’t be.
I met a caveman in Chicago who lost over 200 lbs. He is a stevia enthusiast.
Stevia is completely fine while on a Primal Blueprint eating plan. I’ll have awesome recipes in the future that are low carb without stevia. This one has it. It features almond milk and almond butter along with chocolate. Enjoy!
- 1 Cup Almond Milk
- 1/4 Cup Ice
- 1 scoop Stevia
- 2 TBSP Almond Butter
- 1 TBSP Cacao Powder
- 2 TBSP Avocado
What makes this smoothie low carb?
About 17% of the calorie count is from carbs. But 9 out of 20 of the grams of carbs come from fiber. Your body does not digest fiber. It instead passes right through. When that carb percentage is in the 10-15% range I will look at the fiber content and then decide if it is low carb or not. I think this one qualifies.
