Delicious Keto Smoothies

A ketogenic diet requires the intake of carbohydrates to be kept low, so the body switches to burning stored fats instead of them for producing energy. This switch puts the body into a state called ketosis, which causes an accumulation of acids called ketones. Although some smoothies can contain ingredients with a high content of carbohydrates like fruits or yoghurt, there are plenty of low-carb keto smoothies that you can enjoy for breakfast or as a snack.
