We are often overwhelmed by polyunsaturated fats from seed oils (e.g. canola, sunflower, rapeseed and soybean).  The avocado in this recipe provides monounsaturated fats as a healthy source of energy along with vitamin C and copper.  

Protein powder boosts the protein which can be harder to get on a plant-based dietary approach.  The greens provide a range of vitamins and minerals to boost the nutrient density of this ketogenic snack.
