How to make a keto chocolate smoothie?
A keto chocolate smoothie has no banana. While bananas are often used to thicken smoothies, they also contain a lot of natural sugar not suitable for diabetics. Therefore, the trick to make the most delicious thick sugar-free chocolate smoothie is avocado. Avocado is naturally creamy, bland in flavor when combined with cocoa powder and adds the perfect thickness to keto smoothies. Plus, it helps you reach your fat intake and gives you fiber and protein to feel full for longer.
