KETO RECIPE: My Favorite Berry Avocado Keto Smoothie

This is my all-time favorite keto smoothie! I know that it is good for me (it is packed with healthy fats, greens, and berries), but honestly, I eat it because it tastes like ice cream. I use full fat coconut milk, avocado, fresh spinach, berries, ice cubes, and Perfect Keto Collagen. 

Because of all of the healthy fats, this recipe whips up into the creamiest, lightest mixture. It is not heavy or hard to finish like most healthy smoothies. I make this on the go to enjoy as I drive or as an afternoon snack on a hot day. 

Normally, I use Perfect Keto's Peaches and Cream Base in this recipe, but recently I have been adding the Vanilla Collagen instead. 

Collagen is the protein that holds our bodies together. It supports the integrity of our skin, muscles, tendons, and bones. Unfortunately, as we age our bodies stop making as much collagen. So it is important to add collagen to our diets.

Perfect Keto's Collagen Powder is a keto-friendly protein powder that works really well in shakes and even has some MCT in it to give a boost of energy. The Vanilla Collagen does not effect the texture or taste of this smoothie. There is absolutely no chalkiness or weird protein taste. It enhances the flavor without being overpowering and the benefits are amazing. I feel full and energized for hours. 

I don't think I will ever get sick of this smoothie. The first bite always makes me dance around my kitchen.

KETO RECIPE: Buttery Slow-Cooker Mushrooms

Slow-cooker recipes make cooking healthy, keto-friendly meals so much easier. In the midst of a busy weekend of volleyball games and other activities, it's so nice to be able to throw these mushrooms in the slow-cooker in the afternoon and have a savory, keto, side dish ready for my daughter and I when we get home. These buttery, cheesy keto mushrooms take ten minutes to prep and cook slowly for up to four hours.

For this recipe, I got to use Vital Farms' new Pasture-Raised Sea Salted Butter. THAT'S RIGHT: VITAL FARMS MAKES BUTTER NOW. It is delicious and comes from grass fed cows in the U.S.

Cremini Mushrooms have my favorite texture. But beware, they lose water as they cook so use a generous amount. If you have guests, I would suggest doubling or even tripling the recipe.

If you don't have dry ranch-dressing mix, you can mix some onion powder, garlic, pink salt, and pepper along with some dried herbs of your choice. This recipe would be amazing with some Herb Butter
