So I’ve been swooning over all these lovely smoothie bowls I’ve been seeing everywhere (they look delicious) but their nutritional content turns them into carbohydrate and sugar-laden pits of insulinogenic mayhem.
“But there’s bananas, kiwi and pineapple in my smoothie bowl, and fruit is good for you, right?”
I wish more people knew the truth about fruit. No thank you. I’d rather eat a candy bar because that is what most fruit is to me. Candy. So what is a girl to do when making a smoothie bowl?
Make it keto!
I am never fearful of mixing things up a bit and make my meals a little unconventional. Here’s a spinach almond, macadamia “smoothie” bowl I made today. Very simple! Just microwave 3-4 cups of spinach for about 3 minutes. Take the spinach out of the microwave and toss it around until it softens and forms a nice loaf. Spread 2 tablespoons of almond butter to next the spinach. Drizzle liberally with macadamia oil. Add 1/2 bag or so of Whisps Cheese Crisps. Done and yum!
This “smoothie” bowl is loaded with good fats (macadamia oil and almond butter). The cooked spinach has about 839 mg of potassium which is essential for maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance while eating keto. Your body may not ever miss the fruit.
Give it a try!
