Smoothies are kind of amazing. Vitanja’s keto smoothies are creamy, sweet and crunchy but contain absolutely no processed sugar, and that – and here is the best part – teach your body to easily burn fat for fuel!
Half a large avocado
1 cup spinach
1 ½ cups coconut milk
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp xylitol
Handful of ice
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender, adding the ice last.
Blend for 1 minute or until smooth and creamy.
Pour into a bowl and sprinkle with your favorite low-carb toppings.
I have used shredded coconut, chia seeds, fresh raspberries and bee polen for some extra crunchiness and surprise with every bite, and nutritional value: Bee pollen contain more protein than any animal source and more amino acids than equal weight of eggs or beef.
Serves 1 person, and whoever will be served, s/he will ask for more.

You could add 1 bsp of MCT oil to the smoothie if you want to increase your fats. My favourite MCT oil to use for smoothies and coffee is the Bulletproof Brain Octane.
