You think you're doing your body good by having a smoothie made with tons of fresh fruit, but if you load up on the banana, mango, strawberries, and blueberries, you could be sipping down a crazy amount of carbs. Here's a recipe that has about half the carbs of a basic smoothie recipe, at just under 22 grams, with only seven grams of sugar.
Made with low-carb raspberries, fiber-filled almond butter, and low-carb plant-based protein powder, this 312-calorie raspberry vanilla smoothie tastes sweet enough without overloading you with sugar. The healthy fats, fiber, and protein (almost 35 grams!) offer a quick and easy way to stay full until lunch.
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
1 tablespoon almond butter (or 1/4 avocado)
1 serving vanilla protein powder (Vega Sport Performance, 41 grams)
1 1/2 cups water
4 ice cubes
- Mix everything in a blender until smooth. Enjoy immediately!
