Keto Smoothie Recipe

What is the Keto Diet?
As many of you may already know, I have been on a Keto Diet since March of 2018.
Following low-carb lifestyle has been extremely easy, fun and rewarding for my whole family.
Often times I’m surprised how I don’t really miss sugar and carbs.
I’ve been able to consume nutritious meals, full of fat and low in carbs and I also enjoy creating sugar-free desserts.
Everything I’ve made so far tastes amazing and I don’t regret starting the diet.
For those of you who are curious, what the Keto diet is – it is a very low-carb diet, which can help you burn fat effectively.
The body enters into ketosis and produces small fuel molecules called “ketones”.
This is an alternative fuel source for the body, used when blood sugar is in short supply.
What to consume on Keto Diet – foods low in carbs, high in fat and with a moderate amounts of protein.
We’ve always been fans of smoothies, but I realized that the ones we used to make before starting the Keto diet, were full of carbs and sugary fruits, like banana and pineapple.
At first I made some “Keto friendly” smoothies, but they didn’t taste too good.
They were too watery and not sweet.
This is when I decided to add coconut milk to my smoothies.
I used Thai Kitchen canned coconut milk.
To make a great Keto smoothie, you need to use low-carb, high fat and no refined sugar ingredients.
How to use this Coconut Milk In Cooking?
- You can add it to oatmeal, coffee and tea
- Use in stir-fries, soups, curries and sauces
- Substitute one can oil for water for a moist cake
- Replace heavy cream with coconut milk for Keto recipes, because heavy cream is not always the best option and coconut milk works best for vegan Keto recipes
Ingredients for this Keto smoothie recipe:
- coconut milk ( Used Thai Kitchen Full Fat Coconut Milk from a can)
- water or ice
- low-carb sweetener (optional)
- nut butter (optional, I usually add a teaspoon of peanut or almond butter to mine)
- cocoa powder
- berries -blackberries, raspberries, strawberries or blueberries (blueberries have the highest net carb count)
- chia seeds
How to make a low-carb Smoothie?
Making a Keto smoothie, doesn’t differ from making any regular smoothie.
Just place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
If I happen to use only blackberries, I like to blend for 20-30 seconds more, because I don’t want to feel the seeds in my smoothie.
The result – a heavenly creamy and delicious drink.

This smoothie really tastes great! Super creamy with the coconut milk.
I loved this smoothie! Thanks for sharing!
Can’t wait to try! Thanks
Nobody in my family of 10 liked it. 🙁 Ewwww
Sorry, this is a personal choice.
I’m curious like Dana. Are the nutritional facts for one serving or both servings combined? It’s delicious by the way. VERY smooth and creamy. I add a little water at the end to get every drop. Yum!
Shani, tt is for 1 serving. Thank you!
Hi, this smoothie looks delicious. I’m just curious to know about the nutrition info. It says it’s only 7g carbs but blackberries alone are 6g. for a half cup. Can you help me understand if this is accurate? I’d like to make sure my carbs are correct for my Keto.
For Keto, you subtract the fiber from the total carb count so in this recipe the net carbs will be: 7 g total carbs – 2 g fiber = 5 g net carbs, which is what you count for Keto.
For me, this was just okay. I thought it was quite bland. I was excited about chocolate and peanut butter, but I really couldn’t taste either. I’m new to the keto diet so maybe I’m just too used to my cold, sweet, fruity smoothies. I was looking for something besides eggs (!) for breakfast.
Sorry, Keto smoothies are thick, fatty and usually not sweet, since you can only use berries, unlike regular smoothies made with sweet and full of carbs fruits, the two are really not comparable…
Add a splash of Diet Cran/Grape juice… it really amps up the fruity flavor
Thank you for the great suggestion!
SMOOTHIE WAS VERY CREAMY, SMOOTH, AND OVERALL DELICIOUS! THE UNSWEENTNED COCOA POWDER KINDOF OVERPOWERED THE OTHER FLAVOR SO I TRIED IT WITHOUT AND ITS SOO MUCH BETTER!
Have you tried adding and keto friendly flavoring? This is a great liquid fat-bomb! But I’m curious if you have tried the sweet life flavor Co flavorings, or anything similar.
Thank you for sharing! Excellent extra info—a great read!
I need to try it 🙂
I only had blueberries. What would my carb count beÉ
1/2 cup blackberries has 7 g carbs and 1/2 cup blueberries has 10.5 g net carbs. So the carbs in the smoothie per serving will increase with 1.75 g. The smoothie will have 8.75 net carbs per serving.
What kind of low carb sweetener to use for this?
I usually skip the sweetener, but if I happen to use any I use liquid Stevia or some erythritol.
I really enjoyed this. Curious tho, you said it’s 2 serving sizes but it made a single serving. I had it in a small glass and it didn’t fill it up. Are the nutrition facts for the whole recipe or half the recipe?
