This Low Carb, Keto-friendly Berry Smoothie is everything youโ€™ve been searching for. When I first started my low carb, keto lifestyle I quickly grew sick of eggs for breakfast. I needed some serious fluff. The pancakes and waffles kind of breakfast.
ย 
I digressโ€ฆ I am still recovering from my carb addiction and my inner carbie comes out sometimes.ย

What I love about this Berry smoothie is the versatility of it. You can use whatever berries you would like. You will just have to adjust the macros for the berry choice you selected.

Can you eat Berries on a Low Carb, Keto Diet?

ย 
Like anything good in this worldโ€ฆ in moderation. Even though berries are the fruits lowest in sugar, they’re still fruits. I’m sure fruits translate into something foreign to the dessert of the earth. Because Seriously I could live stranded off of an island of exclusively berries and exotic beaches.ย ย

Health Benefits of Berries for PCOS

ย 
Women with PCOS have more oxidative stress than women without. A diet high in antioxidants can combat that stress. Another super yummy way to incorporate antioxidant-rich foods is through Chia Seed Pudding.ย 
ย 
Now back to the berriesโ€ฆ
ย 
Berries help improve blood sugar and insulin response. Women with PCOS are more likely to have blood sugar issues and insulin resistance. Research suggests as much as 65-75% of women with PCOS have insulin resistance.ย 
ย 
Berries are also high in fiber. Fiber is something within the food that our bodies cannot process. It serves the purpose of helping to clear and slow down the digestive tract. While our bodies are busily trying to break down this โ€˜fiberโ€™, our bodies’ ability to absorb sugar will be slowed down in the process.ย

Recipes and Preparation Tips

Low Carb, Keto Berry Smoothie
ย 
For a creamy consistency, I recommend freezing the almond milk into milk cubes in advance. Not only does this save you time, but this also allows for a creamy thick consistency without any added dairy.
ย 
This recipe has Monk Fruit Sweetener. This is my personal favorite brand. My family can’t tell the difference between this sugar-free sweetener and sugar, that’s a win for me. With other sweeteners, weโ€™ve experienced the dreaded after mint cool sensation.
ย 
That is not the way I want to savor the after taste of the foods I’ve just eaten. Interested in a full list of some of my low carb, keto favorites that you can get on Amazon? Here are my top favorites from amazon.ย
