When you’re in a rush, this keto berry smoothie is a great base recipe for a snack or breakfast. With avocado, coconut milk and plentiful berries, it not only looks amazing but tastes out of this world!!
Its closer to a milkshake consistency than a smoothie and is super rich and creamy. You almost feel like you are cheating on your diet- especially if you add a touch of sweetener. Don’t tell your kids its good for them and they will happily sip on it!
I love avocados and have come to appreciate them in a number of different foods. Check out some of our other favorite keto recipes that call for avocado in unexpected treats:
