Low Carb Keto Vanilla Avocado Almond Smoothie

I have some friends that are currently on a Keto diet. If you’re not familiar with this diet you can look at Reddit for some good info. The basic premise of this diet is to have high fat and protein meals with very little net carbs. My friends wanted to make some smoothies for simple breakfasts and snacks. This is my first attempt a making a nice tasting smoothie to match their diet. I think the results are pretty good. This smoothie definitely has a strong almond flavor but is balanced with vanilla. The avocado makes it extra creamy.
