KETO RECIPE: Strawberry-Raspberry Smoothie Bowl


Just when you thought you had added cauliflower to everything possible… meet the Strawberry-Raspberry CAULIFLOWER Smoothie! Sounds weird, but tastes amazing.

Frozen (previously cooked) cauliflower added into smoothies makes them thick and creamy and doesn’t add any kind of weird taste.

Don’t love Cauliflower as much as me? That’s ok, no one does. You can swap out the cauliflower in this recipe for 1/2 an avocado. They both do the same thing: add a great texture without changing the taste.

This Strawberry-Raspberry Smoothie Bowl is almost too pretty to eat! It’s Instagramable, Delicious, and KETO!

KETO RECIPE: Mermaid Smoothie Bowl


So as you probably saw on Instagram, I just bought a Jeep in Mermaid Blue! I absolutely love the color. It is perfect for Beach adventures and cruising in the California Sunshine! It puts a smile on my face just thinking about it!

It seems Mermaid Blue has been a theme for me recently. Maybe it has something to do with my being a Pisces with the last name Fisch 🐠. This Mermaid Smoothie Bowl is the perfect breakfast for me!

These colors are irresistible. Making this bowl feels like creating a work of art and I LOVE IT!

The Secret to the amazing color is Blue Majik which can be purchased on my amazon store! It’s not necessary for the taste of the Smoothie but it sure does make things more Fun!

Keto Recipe: Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie


My grown up blender!

My grown up blender!

I finally got a grown up blender!

I’ve been living this whole time with the cheapest blender available and a super tiny food processor. Finally I decided it was time to be a real adult and now I have a nice big food processor and super amazing Blendtec blender!

I was amazed at the power in this blender and it is super easy to use! The first thing I decided to make was a Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie for my daughter and I! It’s a take on a recipe I have in my second cookbook, The Big Book of Keto, but it’s a little different. It is such a yummy treat or meal.

THE BIG BOOK OF KETO RECIPE: Blueberry-Coconut Smoothie

I love all things blueberry, so it is no surprise that I like this smoothie! It's a little different from most smoothies I make because there is no ice in it, which makes it super creamy. It's a little higher in net carbs but is super filling and works great for a full meal, leaving you satisfied. I like to drink this for lunch when I have a high-protein meal planned for later in the day.

That's why we are so excited that Perfect Keto Nut Butter is back in stock! They have been sold out for months!

Because of poor vanilla bean harvests in Madagascar in recent years, the price of vanilla has sky-rocketed. But Perfect Keto is dedicated to using only the best ingredients, so they patiently waited for Madagascar Vanilla to come back on to the market. And the wait is over!!!!

Perfect Keto Nut Butter is a blend of Macadamia, Cashew, Coconut, Vanilla, and MCT! MCT oil supports mental clarity and sharpness, gives a natural energy boost, and helps maintain normal hormone and digestive function.

There are no weird ingredients or low quality oils which can be an issue with some store bought nut butters.

If you’ve never had it, Perfect Keto Nut Butter is the ultimate snack for a low-carbohydrate or ketogenic lifestyle.

Thick, rich and velvety, this nut butter is perfect on its own, or added to favorite recipes and smoothies. Bake with it, drizzle it on your favorite keto sweets, or just dunk a stick of celery right into the jar.

Perfect Keto Collagen: New Flavors and Sizes

I've raved about Perfect Keto Collagen before! It's just so good that I need to rave about it some more!

Perfect Keto has delivered again with a new flavor of Collagen, SALTED CARAMEL and Single Packets for when you need protein on the Go!

Like always, You can get 20% off your entire order of Perfect Keto when you use the Promo Code: KETOINTHECITY.

Perfect Keto Collagen is made only from grass-fed collagen. Collagen is known to improve joint and ligament health, help repair gut lining, and work miracles for your hair, skin, and nails. Perfect Keto Collagen contain's MCT Oil Powder. I'll let the folks at Perfect Keto explain why:

"MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are your body’s preferred source of energy. MCTs are quickly metabolized into ketones, shuttling energy to your body. Pairing the collagen with MCT fats slows the absorption of protein so that your body uses it for recovery instead of converting it to glucose within the body."

Umm Yes Please!

The MCT Oil and Stevia extract help Perfect Keto Collagen taste delicious with out spiking blood sugar.

Perfect Keto Collagen comes in a large variety of flavors: Unflavored, Chocolate, Vanilla, and the brand new Salted Caramel.

The Unflavored Collagen is great to add to water in the morning as a supplement. I use the flavored Collagens in my smoothies to add protein, MCT, and a little flavor. Sometimes I just make a simple shake with coconut milk and the Salted Caramel Collagen. It tastes delicious, is fabulous for my joints, and keeps me full. The Collagen is not clumpy or chalky so you can even add it to your coffee or tea.

The full effect of Collagen takes about three weeks to set in, so be patient. You will soon see the effects on your skin, hair, and nails, and hopefully feel more active in your joints and at ease in your belly.

Perfect Keto now sells single packets of their most popular products: MCT Oil Powder, Ketone Base, and, of course, Collagen. Now you don't have to worry about traveling with a large tub of your favorite protein. You can just throw some packets in your bag and go!

I love having these packets in my desk for when I need an energy boost before my mid-afternoon meeting.

At the moment, they only have two flavors of Collagen available in Packets: Chocolate and Unflavored. I really hope they add Salted Caramel!

KETO REVIEW: Perfect Keto's Micro Greens Powder

When first switching to Keto, Macros were definitely my main focus. The shift from a normal low-carb diet to a full-time Ketogenic lifestyle was huge, and I wanted to make sure that nothing was going to keep me from success. I calculated my ideal Macros and dug in. 

When making such a huge shift in our lives, it is easy to forget the small stuff: The Micros. 

These Micronutrients are found in fruits and vegetables and are essential to our long-term health and even to our success in Ketosis. Living a low-carb life means avoiding many of these very fruits and vegetables, but now I can get all of my micronutrients and a boost of MCT fuel with Perfect Keto's Micro Greens Powder.

Perfect Keto Micro Greens Powder contains:

  • Greens and vegetable blend. 4.5 grams of raw organic greens and vegetables coming from 12 different plants that contain all of the phytonutrients and none of the wasteful product.

  • Berry and fruit blend. 4.5 grams of raw organic berries coming from 10 different sources.

  • MCT Powder. 3.5 grams from coconut oil fat to help absorb vitamins, minerals, and plants. MCT is readily accessible by your brain for energy.

  • Liver support enzymes. These enzymes were included to help you deliver the nutrients without wasting any of the micronutrients of the product.

  • Digestive enzymes. These were included so your body can break down the plant nutrients more efficiently.

  • Reishi Mushroom. A powerful compound that helps decrease inflammation, fatigue, skin problems and anxiety.

  • Inositol. A naturally occurring ingredient in plants that help nerve conduction, fat breakdown and insulin regulation.

Perfect Keto Micro Greens Powder was designed to be a Multivitamin. I prefer to mix one scoop into a large glass of water in the afternoon and down it, like it was intened. The Lemon flavor is strong but pleasent, and I love the little boost of afternoon MCT energy.

It would also taste great in a smoothie with some fresh raspberries, Perfect Keto Collagen Powder, and lots of ice. 

 

Don't forget to used the promo code KETOINTHECITY when you purchase the Perfect Keto Micro Greens Powder for a 20% Discount!

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.
