People often think all smoothies are healthy.
But in fact, they are often loaded with sugar. The sugar can be dependant on the fruits used of course!
For a low carb, Keto green smoothie bowl, the key points are fat content and protein. Your want your smoothie bowl to be thick and creamy, unlike a normal smoothie you would drink. You can then top with extras like nuts, chia seeds and low sugar fruits like blueberries and raspberries!
