If you like having a protein shake after your workout but want to keep it low-carb, then this Raspberry Keto Protein Shake is for you. It has only 5g of net carbs per serve and is substantial enough to count as lunch or breakfast.
The Low Down On Protein Powder
I have used 1 scoop of protein powder to keep the protein levels low. When eating a ketogenic diet you need to be careful not to eat too much protein as any excess will be converted into glucose. To learn more about this, click here. If you are aiming to stay in ketosis and depending on what other protein you are consuming that day, keep the protein low. Otherwise feel free to add a second scoop of protein powder, based on your protein requirements.
Look out for a low-carb protein powder – I am currently using the Isopure Zero Carb brand, which has a lot of great flavors. For this recipe though, use unflavored or vanilla protein powder. Enjoy!
