Introduction

WHAT IS KETO DIET?

Ketogenic diets focus on enhancing the process of Ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process wherein the body pledges to help you survive when the food intake is low. During the ketosis process, your body produces ketones which are come from the breakdown of liver fats.

The whole purpose of this diet is to induce the body into the ketosis metabolic state. The main aim here is not to do this through the starvation of calories but instead aim to do this through the starvation of carbs. Which means that the ketogenic diet is carbs-free or very low on carbs. The lower the composition of carbs in your keto diet, the quicker your body produces ketones.
Ketones are produced by the body only if the consumption of carbs is low and you moderate your protein consumption. They are often used as fuel throughout the body (especially the brain).

MORE ABOUT THIS RECIPE OF THE STRAWBERRY AND MINT CHEESECAKE KETO SMOOTHIE

The Strawberry and Mint Cheesecake Keto Smoothie is lush, decadent and very indulgent. The combination of strawberries and mint is perfect and is often the best detox drink! Raw mint has a great refreshing flavour and strawberries are a probiotic. They are a rich source of Vitamin C and antioxidants. The berries are an excellent keto fruit and are often the best when paired into a smoothie.

This drink is called the strawberry and mint cheesecake keto smoothie because the cream cheese and double cream give it the fat that is required in any keto dish and also adds the flavour that one requires for their taste buds.

It is best to consume restricted quantities fo fruits while on a keto diet because too much of anything (even a healthy ingredient) can be bad. Since berries have 3 grams to 5 grams of carbs per 30 grams of the fruit, it is best to stay within the limit.
Enjoy!
