Low carb smoothies are great every once in a while. I’m a not a liquid diet kind of gal but sometimes I just want something cold and tasty to sip on as a treat, or after I go to the gym when I’m not hungry but need to get some food in me.
So I’ve been asking around the low carb circles, what they’re making at home as smoothies and decided to try out their recipes myself.
Since so many low carb smoothies are 10+ carbs, my goal was to seek out ones that are less than 5 net carbs.
With these low carb smoothies, everyone can feel comfortable enjoying them and not feeling like they need to pinch their carb pennies for the rest of the day.
One thing to keep in mind – ingredients are important. There are cream cheeses with 3 net carbs per serving because they’re chock full of fillers. And there are cleaner ones that have 1. There are protein shakes with 20 net carbs per serving, and whey protein ones that are 1 net carb (I like VPX Zero Carb SRO 100% Whey Protein Isolate ( 0 carbs per serving) or Isopure Low Carb in Dutch Chocolate (3 net carbs per serving ). They also make a Zero Carb in Isopure but only in Vanilla.
Also, I know I’m usually anti-sugar free stuff, but a tbsp of these sugar-free syrups made all the difference in the once I’ve included it in. I usually go with Torani.
