One of my favorite fruits of all time has always been blueberries. Not only are they a nutritional powerhouse, but there is something about that deep purple color that I simply cannot resist. They are also a great option for fruit when it comes to a ketogenic diet because they are low in carbohydrates and calories. Fortunately, blueberries are one of those fruits that can also be found at the regular grocery store year round. However, when blueberries are at the peak of their season, you can find the sweetest, juiciest, and most plump berries at your local farmers market.
There is nothing like a smoothie or a smoothie bowl on a warm day, so as the weather begins to change I am actually very excited to bring the blender back out onto my countertops. Smoothies are such a great option when you are pressed for time and need something on the go. However, sometimes I love being able to sit down and really enjoy a smoothie. This is where smoothie bowls come in! They are every bit as easy to make, but even better in my opinion because of all the toppings you can add on. Berries, chia seeds, coconut flakes, keto cereal, and my personal favorite… Perfect Keto Nola Bars. These are soft, chewy, and you will want to make sure every spoonful of smoothie has a bit of bar on it as well! You are going to fall in love with this low carb blueberry smoothie recipe!
