Smoothie Variations

There are several smoothie variations of this recipe you could try, and still keep it low carb.

Some flavor combinations I tested include:

  1. Swap The Peanut Butter: You can swap the peanut butter, for either almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter.
  2. Lower Carb Smoothie: If the current amount of carbs (13g per serving) is too much for your goals, lower the carb content by swapping the berries in the recipe for 1/2 cup of ice.
  3. Swap The Cream Cheese: You can use unsweetened yogurt or cottage cheese instead of cream cheese.
