With baby number four on her way and being diagnosed with gestational diabetes it has forced me to radically revamp my dietary life. But it hasn’t been all bad. Due to all the heat this summer I have found a real love for smoothies and love coming up with new flavors and combination of smoothies between 15 to 30 carbs a serving. This is my favorite low carb smoothy and its too good not to share.
Creamy Beach Smoothy (Low Carb)
Serving size: 2
Carbs per serving: 17g.
1 C. Silk Coconut Milk
1 Coconut Chobani Greek Yogurt
1 C. crushed ice
3-4 splenda packets
1/2 C. no sugar added pineapple bits
1 whole lime
1. In a blender squeeze lime juice from the fresh lime. Leave out a slice for decorations if you want. You can easily add the rest of the ingredients but make sure your ice is crushed already before you put it in. Ice can be very hard on your blender.
Tip 1: I like Chobani yogurt because it is one of the few yogurts out there with almost half as much sugar as the other yogurts and its just a really nice quality yogurt.
Tip 2: If you would like even lower carbs in your smoothy try plain yogurt instead of coconut yogurt and just add an extra packet of Splenda.
Tip 3: In case you’re looking for a blender to prep this or any other smoothies or even soups, this comprehensive buyer’s guide buy KitchenGuyd is sure to help get the best bang for your buck.
