Being on a keto diet can be a real challenge, especially in the first couple of weeks. This is where juicing comes into play, because it will definitely help you get a lot of nutrients which are hard to obtain through the regular meals alone.
However, juicing can be very high in carbohydrates which is quite contrary to any keto diet. This is why you need to create your juice by yourself and use ingredients that won’t interfere with your keto diet. Keep reading to find a couple of keto juice recipes that will be perfect for any low carb diet.
The first rule of preparing a keto juice is not to use fruit. Fresh fruit has fiber in it, however when you juice fruit only the sugar in it remains which can take quite a toll on the liver. Not to mention it will spike your blood sugar.
For that reason, the base of every keto juice should always be a vegetable. Preferably a vegetable that contains a lot of water because it will be low in carbs. Celery, cucumbers and other leafy greens are a good start to your juice. After that, the key is to load the juicer with vegetables that are low in sugar. To add some sweetness, you can use carrots and beets which are sweet and high in carbs at the same time.

This juice can be the perfect start to your day. The recipe suggests adding coconut milk and MCT oil to the juice, making it even better for your keto diet. The other ingredients are:
