Tropical goodness in a smoothie – a welcome start to any day or even as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up snack! Eating pineapple on keto? Why yes, it is doable. The key is moderation and using it as a flavor boost. However, its extremely important to use only fresh or frozen pineapple because canned pineapple is very high in oxalates!
This recipe was inspired by a client who had a pineapple in his fridge and wanted to explore how, or if, he could incorporate it into his keto and oxalate goals. We love questions, we love curiosity – it is part of having a livable and enjoyable nutrition plan.
