This chocolate green smoothie is a healthy breakfast option for your ketogenic eating. It’s low in carbs, and high in healthy fats, magnesium, and potassium, which makes it the ideal meal to start your morning.

We use raspberries in this recipe, but you can use other types of low carb fruits of your choice. Berries are an excellent source of antioxidants, especially anthocyanins, which have been shown to contain antimicrobial properties, improve neurological health and vision, and protect against several non-communicable diseases (1).

This recipe also calls for spinach, which is also a good source of antioxidants and fiber. Green leafy vegetables are especially high in chlorophyll, a green pigment that gives the plants its color.

Research shows that chlorophyll may help stop the growth of human cancer cells. It also plays a crucial role in DNA synthesis and repair to keep your cells healthy.

Chlorophyll has been shown to support liver health, accelerate wound healing, and act as an internal deodorant (2). A one cup serving of spinach contains 23.7 grams of chlorophyll.

The cocoa in this recipe isn’t just for taste. Research shows that dark cocoa is one of the best sources of antioxidant flavonoids on Earth, which can help reduce inflammation and protect against diseases (3).

Cocoa is also a good source of minerals, such as copper, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Minerals are involved in many processes in the body, but they are especially important for enzyme support.

Deficiencies can lead to an increased risk of disease. For example, a copper deficiency may lead to hypertension, inflammation, anemia, myocardial hypertrophy, glucose intolerance, hypercholesterolemia, and cardiac arrhythmia (4).

If you want to make this a complete meal for breakfast or lunch, consider adding a scoop of keto protein powder.

Collagen protein powder is also perfect for this drink. It has many wonderful health benefits as well.
