This Keto Protein Green Smoothie aka, a giant Green Monster is packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats and tastes like a vanilla almond milkshake. It’s easy to make and is perfect for a low carb breakfast on the go!
Low Carb Smoothies are a great way to start your day! Whether you’re late for work and need a quick breakfast, or if you’ve just got back from the gym and you want a little extra vitamins and minerals to go along with your protein. This keto protein smoothie is for you!
Smoothies kinda get a bad wrap for being feminine, but don’t let this smoothie fool you! Our low carb smoothie is packed with 32g of protein per serving and doesn’t taste chalky or earthy.
You’ll literally be wanting to make this all the time!
And women, don’t be afraid to get that protein in! Proteins are the building blocks of our cells and help preserve lean body mass. And we all know lean body mass aka muscle helps us have a higher metabolism.
I for one love to eat and the faster my metabolism, the more I can eat without gaining weight lol.
And if you’re interested in weight loss on a keto diet, increased protein intake was shown to reduce lean body mass loss during weight loss. This is mostly because of the essential amino acid leucine which increases protein synthesis.
