Ah, Monday! Many good intentions have started on Mondays. Today is my first day back on the ketosis wagon. I've had a very indulgent carb up weekend while celebrating my cousins' birthday.
I woke up this morning to strong winds, snow, and dreaming of summer. The winds have died down but the snow still rages on. Now, a cold drink is not very ideal for this weather but I did just come back from hot yoga so I'm pretty warm. I've had a love-love relationship with avocado shakes since I was little when my dad use to make them for me during a hot day in the Philippines. His version had avocado, ice, & condensed milk and tasted like heaven.
My keto friendly version has a few substitutes and an addition to make it healthier. Here's the recipe:
1 medium avocado
1 cups of ice
3/4 cup of unsweetened coconut milk
1tsp of chia seeds
2 drops of liquid stevia or other low carb sweetener
Cut avocado in half and remove pit. Scoop out flesh from the skin.
In the blender, add ice, avocado, chia seeds, coconut milk, & sweetener.
Blend on high until smooth.
Serve & enjoy!
