Keto Breakfast Smoothie with Coffee
This chocolate-coffee smoothie was just what I was looking for in a breakfast shake. Not only is this smoothie tasty and provided me with a nice coffee flavor, it comes in under 3 net carbs. I was thrilled with the rich chocolate flavor, and was even happier that I was fueling my body with real foods vs. my typical cereal.
I am still trying to find my groove with better eating and time management. These upcoming breakfast smoothie recipes were actually made in one day, placed in a plastic freezer bag, labeled, and frozen. I would then take three homemade smoothies out of the freezer and allow to thaw in the refrigerator. Then, I would pour one thawed smoothie into a glass and enjoy while doing my morning computer work.
If you are preparing your chocolate, avocado, and coffee smoothie from scratch, start with chunked and frozen avocado and frozen coffee cubes. This will lend to a thicker and smoother smoothie.
Health Benefits of Avocado
Avocados are packed full of vitamins and minerals such as B-6, C, E, K, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, and folate acid. Avocados also provide a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and healthy fats. Eating healthy fats supports healthy skin and boosts the immune system.
Best Cocoa Powder for Smoothies
It’s all about the chocolate in my life. I purchased Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder for this chocolate smoothie. This cocoa powder offered a deep, rich flavor. It was not light in chocolate flavor, it was amazing! I’ve been using this for other fun recipes (more coming soon).
I ended up adding Organic BetterStevia® Extract Powder to sweeten up the smoothie. This tends to be my go-to brand because the only ingredient is certified organic stevia leaf extract. That’s not the case with a lot of other stevia brands. It’s another reminder of why reading the ingredient panel vs. the front of a package is so important.
