There’s been so much talk online recently about smoothies and if they are actually good for us.

Many smoothies are based on banana or coconut water, which are both very high in carbs.

There’s no denying that smoothies can be packed with great vitamins and minerals, but if you’re on a low carb diet then you do need to be really careful.

I created this smoothie to have for breakfast on one of these super hot days. It’s icy cold so cools you down, has a beautiful strawberry flavour, is super low carb and high in protein, making it a smoothie you can really enjoy!
