Broadly speaking, the keto or ketogenic diet is one that is characterized by having a very low carbohydrate content and a high-fat one. The goal is to create a ketosis situation in the body: by not taking carbohydrates, the body depletes glycogen stores. That is when you must obtain energy by burning the fats in the liver. And what do all the smoothie recipes for a keto diet have to do with this?

The reason is that in this type of diet there are foods that are not allowed and the fruit is one of them since it contains naturally occurring sugar in the form of fructose, which is a carbohydrate. But like everything in life, the keto diet also has exceptions. In fact, it admits in moderation some low-sugar fruits, such as lemon, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, watermelon, grapefruit or melon. We have focused on them to make some of these healthy smoothies that you can drink.
