Ingredients for this low carb key lime smoothie
Makes 2 servings
- 1 cup of coconut milk (try to find a low sugar version)
- 1 cup ice
- ½ avocado
- collagen powder (optional) (1 serving)
- zest and juice of 2 limes
- liquid stevia (I prefer using the vanilla flavor liquid stevia to keep the carbs extra low), or honey
» To keep this recipe even lower in carbs, choose a sweetener that’s low in carbs.
Never used collagen powder? Not to worry, here are my 2 favorite brands. They are both from grass-fed beef.
Bulletproof Collagen Protein – This product allows you to add protein and collagen to your smoothie. It also give it a creamy rich texture.
NeoCell Collagen – This version of collagen doesn’t have as much protein but come from a great source and I love all of their products.

*These nutrition facts are using the Silk Pure Coconut Milk and liquid stevia sweetener. You can choose to use a coconut milk with even lower carbs to reduce the carbohydrates. Adding honey to the recipe will increase the carbohydrates.
