One of the easiest and most nutritious drinks you can make for your keto diet is a smoothie because of the ease in the preparation process and the variety you can have.
Today we are sharing with you a light keto smoothie recipe with blueberries and collagen.
This smoothie is a good option for a quick breakfast or midday snack. You can also drink it as a delicious dessert. It only takes five minutes to prepare.
The special must-have ingredient in this smoothie is the keto collagen powder.
It is a keto-friendly protein powder that is necessary for your body to restore its collagen levels and nourish your skin and hair from the inside out.
As we age, our bodies lose the ability to produce collagen, which is why the skin becomes drier and rougher. It’s crucial to give the body what it needs to maintain its vitality and optimal health.
Collagen also helps repair and replenish the lining of your gastrointestinal tract. This can help keep infections out and prevent leaky gut syndrome, which occurs when harmful pathogens leak through your GI lining and into your bloodstream, causing inflammation and various side effects.
Not all collagen powders are the same. Some are sourced from bovine that is conventionally raised, which may contain antibiotics, hormones, and other unwanted chemicals or preservatives.
Collagen that comes from pasture-raised sources ensures that you’re getting high-quality without added chemicals. Bovine collagen also contains types I and III of collagen for a more complete source whereas marine collagen only contains type I.
Other ingredients in this recipe include blueberries (can be fresh or frozen), almond milk and erythritol for sweetening as needed. Add some ice cubes to make the drink fresh.
Experiment with other flavors. For example, you can add mint for freshness or put cocoa powder in to make it chocolatey. Bon Appetit!
