Are smoothies good on Keto?

As long as you use proper Keto ingredients, the answer is yes.  Peanut butter is not a “clean” Keto food. It’s more of a lazy keto food.  If you’re practicing a more strict Keto lifestyle, you can swap it out for almond butter.  

You can also use something like PB2, which is a peanut butter powder. 

What is the best Keto shake?

The best Keto shake is one that fits your lifestyle and fits your routine.  And that you like.  Many people force themselves to make the perfect Keto shake, but end up hating it.  

The best keto shake is the one that you like and continue to make.  So decide how many macros you want them to be, and work within that.  

People doing Keto all have different amounts of carbs, so it’s impossible to tell you which one is perfect for you exactly without knowing the number of carbs you’re allowing yourself to have. 

How many carbs are in a peanut butter smoothie?

This depends on what you’re using, but for this recipe, there are (carbs) and (net carbs).

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Put the hot coffee and natural peanut butter in a blender so the heat allows the peanut butter to melt and mix well with the coffee. 
  2. If you decided to use cocoa powder, now is the time to add it and blend well. 
  3. Put 2 ice cubes in the blend and mix well.  These two will likely melt.
  4. Put the second two ice cubes in the blender and mix again. These two ice cubes will make the drink more smoothy-like. If you need more ice cubes, add them now. 
  5. Mix in vanilla protein powder.  Blend thoroughly.
  6. Pour back into your mug and enjoy.

Alternatives to Regular Natural Peanut Butter

PB2

PB2 is a peanut butter powder alternative that many Keto dieters use. It has less fat than regular peanut butter. It’s a great plant-based protein.

Almond Butter

Certain diets, like Keto (if you’re being super strict) don’t allow peanuts. Almond butter is a good alternative. It tastes very similar.
