Here are 5 Steps For Creating Your Own Perfect Keto Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies (or shakes) make amazing Keto breakfasts.  They’re fast to make, filling to drink, and taste so yummy.  Some Keto smoothies can literally taste like a milkshake!

But perhaps the best thing about Keto smoothies is that you can customize them to make them your own.

Every great Keto smoothie needs these 5 ingredients:

  • Low carb base liquid (e.g., coconut or almond milk)
  • Extra Keto fats (e.g., MCT oil, avocado, or almond butter)
  • Flavors (e.g., unsweetened cacao powder, berries, vanilla extract)
  • Additional nutrients (e.g., Brazil nuts, collagen powder)
  • Toppings (e.g., cacao nibs, unsweetened shredded coconut)
5 steps for creating amazing Keto smoothies

So, definitely scroll down and make one of our many Keto smoothie recipes below, but also experiment and create your own by following these 5 simple steps:

Step 1:  Choose Your Keto Smoothie Base Liquid

Always add your liquid into your blender first.  This means less of your smoothie ingredients will get stuck to the blender sides.

The best options should help make the smoothie creamier (so go for options with higher fat if possible).  But stay away from sugary options like orange juice as they’ll kick you out of ketosis fast.

We suggest staying dairy-free on Keto to get the best results (especially if you’re doing a Ketogenic diet for weight-loss and improved long-term health).

Here are some of our favorite dairy-free Keto smoothie base options:

  • Unsweetened coconut milk
  • Coconut cream
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • check
    Cashew or other nut/seed milk (check no added sugar)
  • check
  • check
    Tea (herbal, black)
  • check
Choose Your Keto Smoothie Base Liquid

Step 2: Add In Keto Fats For Extra Creaminess 

While this is technically an optional step, doing this will really help to boost your healthy Keto fat intake as well as make your smoothie even more delicious.

Are bananas Keto?

Traditionally, smoothies have used bananas to create that smooth creamy texture without dairy products.  But unfortunately, bananas are not Keto because they are too high in carbs for smoothies.

My favorite Keto smoothie ingredient….is Avocados!

But luckily, you can add in ripe avocados to create that creaminess without the extra carbs.

Avocados are full of monounsaturated fats as well as fiber to help bulk up your keto smoothie.

Other Keto fats to add into your smoothies:

Here are some of other fats to add into your low carb smoothies:

  • Coconut oil
  • MCT oil (only add in a small amount at first e.g., ½ teaspoon)
  • Coconut cream
  • Cashew cream
  • Avocado oil
  • Almond butter (or other nut butters)
  • Coconut yogurt
  • Raw eggs (definitely not for everyone, but it’s a great fat booster)
Add In Keto Fats For Extra Creaminess in your Keto Smoothie

Step 3.  Decide Your Smoothie Flavor 

One of the best things about smoothies is you can make them into your favorite flavors.  There are soooo many options. Some basic flavor ingredients include:

  • Unsweetened cacao powder
  • Unsweetened vanilla extract
  • Other flavor extracts (make sure there's no added sugar)
  • Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries
  • Coffee
Decide On Your Smoothie Flavor

If you’re adding in any fruits, then make sure you take into account the carbs in fruits.

Don’t forget that certain spices add more than just flavor to your Keto drinks:

  • Turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties (1)
  • Cinnamon for its blood sugar regulation abilities (2)
  • Matcha for all its antioxidants (3)
Add some flavor spices to your Keto smoothies

Step 4. Load Your Keto Smoothie with More Nutrients 

Most people stop at step 3, and that’s fine, but you could be adding a ton more nutrients into your Keto diet without spending hours cooking.

Here are some of the nutrients we like to add into our Keto smoothie recipes:

  • Brazil nuts - these add lots of texture but also provide much need selenium
  • Prebiotic fiber - this is what feeds your good gut bacteria, so make sure you get plenty of this if you want to health your gut.
  • Greens - we often don’t eat enough green vegetables, which are filled with nutrients.  So, add a handful of spinach or kale into your smoothie or else add in some greens powder.
  • Collagen powder - this is another gut healing superfood, but if you’re trying to stay vegan or vegetarian, then note that collagen is not vegan or vegetarian-friendly.
  • Protein powder - you can get whey protein if you’re ok with some dairy or go for grass-fed beef protein powder for a great tasting dairy-free alternative.
Load with with more nutrients in your Keto shake

Step 5. Decorate with toppings 

Ever look at the Instagram and Facebook smoothie photos people post?  They always look so amazing right? Well, that’s because they decorate the smoothie with colorful toppings.

And you can do the same!  Here are a few of our favorite Keto smoothie toppings:

  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Cacao nibs
  • Poppy seeds
  • Berries
  • Chopped nuts
Decorate the Keto drink with toppings
