If you’re trying to stick to a low carb diet or follow a strict ketogenic food and drinks regimen, then you will know how acutely hard it can be to give up your favorite sweets and sugary treats. Which is why you are probably on the lookout for awesome keto smoothies of course. Eventually the cravings and hunger pangs for sweet drinks and sugar snacks do fade. Yet it can be a real struggle of the mind to get past this temptation phase.
Now I personally feel so much better without all of that sugar and flour, but I find myself needing something sweet and yummy every once in a while to keep me on the keto track. One of the extra benefits of a keto lifestyle in my opinion is that you do become a more disciplined person.
You become more far experimental in the kitchen, you learn to control your macros, carb and calorie intake. These skills then become disciplined attributes that you can apply to other aspects of your life, often without even realizing. Such as purchasing your keto grocery shopping for instance in order to make delicious smoothies or other keto treats. Or perhaps suddenly your boss wonders why you have become so organized, and so on. There are many unforseen benefits that stem from your keto life.
Having said that I find that keto smoothies seem to be my go-to treat right now because they’re so easy to whip up in the kitchen blender. Now, if you’re a creative person, you can make some pretty darn delicious smoothies and beverages without all of the guilt that’s normally attached to them.
I’ve compiled a list of my favorite low carb drinks, keto smoothies, shakes and much more. Chances are that you are going to break your blender once you become a complete keto smoothie making machine!Sara Louise, Recipe Editor KetoFirst

Keto Easy Bulletproof Coffee
Bulletproof coffee has become extremely popular as a breakfast replacement because it kills cravings, provides energy, and seems to help with mental clarity. Drinking bulletproof coffee is also extremely easy for when you are in a rush. After all why not drink your breakfast on the car ride to work?
So keto easy bulletproof coffee can be rather high in calories and fat, but low in essential nutrients, so I only drink it a few times a week. There are of course other variants to experiment with, such as bulletproof iced coffee for instance. It’s an amazing meal replacement when you just don’t have time to make breakfast or brunch.
The combination of butter and oil in your bulletproof coffee may sound odd at first, but the flavor and consistency of the coffee is actually quite enjoyable. So much so that I am convinced that you will try it again and again.

You will need a blender or dedicated smoothie maker for all of these low carb drinks and beverages. You can use a whisk of courser you like chronic arm ache and a lumpy smoothie mixture, we don’t recommend this.
A blender just takes care of your beverage recipes in record time. That way you can enjoy the smoothies and shakes and get on with your day. The best blender we have discovered by far is the Nutrabullet Pro 900. Incredible price, features and value, this blender is a great productivity investment and will provide years of happy smoothie making. All part of a happy and prosperous keto kitchen!
