Almond Butter Cinnamon Smoothie

I made you an Almond Butter Cinnamon Smoothie. Why? Well, anyone who has come over to keto and low carb from paleo or Whole30, a gym rat, or just come from a general whole food dietary approach has likely been a fan of smoothies at some point. Smoothies are fast, easy, simple, and a brilliant way to take a meal on-the-go when you don’t have time. And really, who has time these days?

The big problem with most of the smoothies lauded on the interwebs though, is that they are crammed with carbs. And while they may be thought of by many as ‘good’ carbs – aka from fruits and vegetables and dairy – we know that carbs are still carbs no matter the source. So we wouldn’t want to down a huge smoothie based on bananas, or handfuls of fruits or vegetables, or pints of cows milk.

So here’s a keto / low carb smoothie brings the fats and protein without all the carbage – the Almond Butter Cinnamon Smoothie. It is also easy and delicious. Almost too easy. But then contrary to popular belief, following keto / low carb and eating healthy food does not have to take hours of your time and energy in order to be super tasty. Truly, it doesn’t.

You can down this Almond Butter Cinnamon Smoothie to break your fast, after a workout, for a snack if you need one, or to take with you if you’re having a day of running around. If you want to up the protein it’s easy to just add another TBSP of collagen, and if you want to make sure that your smoothie stays smoothie-like for hours when you take it on-the-go, just add 1/4 tsp. guar gum and blend for 5 seconds once it’s made. This will also make it more satiating. Winning!

Top Recipe Tips

  • You can also use hydrolyzed gelatin instead of collagen if you prefer. Hydrolyzed gelatin is gelatin that no longer gels, but will stir into liquids without clumping.
  • If you want a sweeter smoothie, simply add sweetener to taste.
