Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Breakfast Strawberry Smoothie

** 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.
