For breakfast, Naois gets a smoothie almost every morning. As a mother I’m sometimes afraid that since Naois is following a ketogenic diet, he doesn’t get enough fruit and vitamins. In the smoothies he gets for breakfast, I always put as much fruit as possible. That way I know he’s getting at least a little bit of fruit every day. And that takes away part of my worries.
Below is the recipe for one of the many versions of the smoothies I make. I also regularly make smoothies with Greek yogurt and other fruits such as strawberries, blackberries and/or mango. I also sometimes put a little Liquigen in his breakfast. With a calculation program for the ketogenic diet (I use Cetoz) you can play with different ingredients to make tasty smoothies with the desired ratio of fats, proteins and carbohydrates and the amount of calories you or your child needs.
Because I’m busy enough as it is, I try to make it as easy as possible for myself. That’s why I usually make 8 smoothies in one go and store them in Tupperwares in the freezer.
