Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Breakfast Strawberry Smoothie
Kent Altena

Published on 11 years ago



** Recipe included in my new low carb, gluten free cookbook, Low Carbing Among Friends. Please check it out at our website @ http://www.amongfriends.us **
In partnership with FaveDiets ( http://www.FaveDiets.com ) recipe site, I wanted to respond with another breakfast suggestion or frankly a drink you could have in between meals as a snack or recovery drink. You will have to be at Ongoing Weight Loss phase though to have this drink.
Feel free to change up the fruit to your liking. Blueberries which are slightly higher carb are also a great addition. A high quality zero carb whey protein powder would also reduce the overall carbs as well.

I'll be making an upcoming video on yogurt, but this smoothie features a quarter cup of Greek plain yogurt, which is 9g of carbs for one cup. Compare this amount to regular plain yogurt that is between 16-25g of carbohydrates per cup.

What type of whey powder are you using in this video? Hope you start making videos again soon. Just found your channel, think it's great. Hope you're still having success following Atkins.

So this should be OK for after the induction. If I remember correctly after that you can start introducing berries back in to your diet which is great. Thanks for the video. Some people are just haters and need to post negativity where ever they go. What's that saying....If you can't say anything nice then keep your trap shut!! Again Thank you!!

I think were all missing the elephant in the room. This guy isn't in the kind of shape that I'm looking for, so I'm not sure why anyone else is taking this seriously...

I would think the strawberries, and yogurt would be not allowed in induction.

Darlene DeVegan

Darlene DeVegan . 8 years ago

Better off to not nuke the strawberries. It makes me shake thicker and colder. I also add 3 cups of water and tablespoon of walnuts. Also great to add a handful of spinach that you can't even taste!

Is the yogurt allowed for induction?

Just remember to think breakfast is not just the typical breakfast foods. It includes other items like leftovers or simple meals that might typically be for lunch or supper, but I will be releasing another breakfast video soon.

I never have time for breakfast so this is going to be very helpful on the days I'm in a rush. Anyone with back/neck problems knows its hard to do ab workouts on the ground. We created a machine that solves this problem, check it out at theabstand*net and try it for $14.95 + free shipping.

No berries, greek yogurt, and whey protein powder are all OWL foods. I will list all the recipes Induction Friendly with (IF) in their titles of the video.

Kent Altena . 9 years ago

Stevia is ok on Induction. I have not heard of anyone having their blood sugars affected by it, but it is still limited to the 3x per day for all sweeteners.

taka taka

taka taka . 9 years ago

yes ofc after induction! and after i start working out seriously i can use some of these fruits!:) thank you (although it's been almost a month that i've been in induction and i'm ind of enjoying the no cravings phase! gym is coming up in January.oh i wanted to ask, is liquid stevia only after induction?i'm not using it but was wandering if it effects blood sugar in any way.

Kent Altena

Kent Altena . 9 years ago

You can certainly add cocoa powder, but berries on Induction would be off-limits. After Induction, as long as they fit the rung you are at and can handle the carbs you can certainly use them.

taka taka

taka taka . 9 years ago

i would like to add a tbs of unsweetened cocoa powder in there <3 i don't go crazy over too much sweetness but a hint of sweetness from the berries with the bitterness of the cocoa...yum! do you recommend it?

Kent Altena

Kent Altena . 9 years ago

No Dutch, or more specifically, my grandparents immigrated from Friesland to be exact.

Candy Sweet

Candy Sweet . 9 years ago

are you juwish?

Kent Altena

Kent Altena . 9 years ago

Just to boost the protein content of the recipe, and thereby helping the overall glycemic index since the protein helps delay the digestion of the carbs.

Lesia Dennis

Lesia Dennis . 9 years ago

wat do you use the whey for? just curious

Kent Altena

Kent Altena . 9 years ago

Regular milk is much higher in carbs. Depends on what your 1% milk yogurt has in it. Is it with added sugars or not? Check the ingredient label.

jollyjane08

jollyjane08 . 9 years ago

Can we use regular milk? Also not having Greek Yogurt right now -wll regular organic 1 % milk yogurt do?

Kent Altena

Kent Altena . 9 years ago

Yes, I warmed up the frozen berries in the microwave.

Horizon Energy

Horizon Energy . 9 years ago

he radiated the berries in a microwave?

When you spend the rest of your day low carb, you might want to start that way as well. As for the reasons why to low carb, I would suggest blood sugar normalization, weight loss, health benefits like reducing one's heart risk factors, and bountiful energy among other things.

Not the unsweetened stuff. It is roughly 2g net carbs per 8 oz.

That's a Ninja blending system that we got for Christmas from my in laws. I think they did infomercials on them, and they got a second system that they gifted to us.

@bowulf that sounds more like it. Sounds like a good recipe

Kent Altena

@HomeGymFitness Thanks! I fixed the information.

HomeGymFitness

I'm pretty sure your number of grams of protein you listed in your more info section is incorrect.

@BLONDEBOSS530 I am glad you like it.

jessica davis

jessica davis . 10 years ago

@bowulf thank u =-D these are great!!!

Kent Altena

Kent Altena . 10 years ago

@bkrbr That would be 6g net carbs. (Total minus the Fiber)

jessica davis

jessica davis . 10 years ago

@bowulf would this be 6 carbs after the fiber, or is that 12carbs after the fiber?

@n10ding1 My daughter is loving these, and makes them before school for breakfast a few days a week.

n10ding1

n10ding1 . 10 years ago

Ahhh It was good to see you enjoying the shake!! :) If you leave the berries frozen, it almost makes it ice cream like.. Love this recipe!

Kent Altena

Kent Altena . 10 years ago

@AznAndy562 You can, but it will be higher carb. If using oats, use the steel cut oats which will be lower in Glycemic Index, but its load will be equivalent.

@wishalis The video is called "Atkins Diet - What about Yogurt on a low carb diet?" So the longer answer can be found there (it was uploaded about a month ago), but the shorter answer is if it contains live active yogurt cultures (not simply made with) and just cream on the ingredients label, it likely is only 4-6 carbs per cup according to a scientist's research. For the Vanilla Ice Cream (assuming the recipe I uploaded here), with that one I would not add any more sweetener and half protein.

@EllaBella1099 No problem, I'll be making another recipe tonight that should be another good breakfast recipe. Glad I could help. :-)

@topnotchjanitor Why they think 40-90g of sugar would be healthy is what I'll never understand. I am glad you like this recipe.
