This High-Protein, Low-Carb Keto Avocado Smoothie made of healthy fats and proteins is naturally low in carbohydrates. Coconut milk contains a beneficial fat called lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid that’s easily absorbed and used by the body for energy. It serves as a great keto diet food, and it actually helps to lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure and prevent heart attacks or a stroke. Chia Seeds contain essential fatty acids, plus vitamins A, B, E and D and minerals including iron, magnesium, niacin and thiamine. Cacao nibs or powder is also healthful and packed with nutrients that fuel the body. Eating cacao nibs will actually improve muscle structure and enhance nerve function due to its nutritional content. Adding avocado to this smoothie will give it a delicious creamy texture and its an excellent source of healthy fats, which is especially important when you’re going keto.
