7 Crazy-Filling Keto Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

Best keto smoothie recipes for weight loss

Need some low-carb keto-friendly smoothies that won’t kick you out of ketosis?

Most healthy smoothie recipes are loaded with carbs and sugary fruits like bananas, pineapple, and mango.

That’s no surprise since most fruits are largely made up of high glucose and carbohydrates.

While their naturally sweet flavors can sweeten your drink without added sugar, a keto diet that limits net carbs still avoids fruits.

The keto diet is a diet that has one goal in mind, which is to take your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

This reaching point is where your body produces ketones and runs on fat, instead of glucose.

And this process can only happen when you cut your net and total carbs drastically and up your fat intake.

Reaching ketosis requires depletion of your primary source of energy, glucose, or carbohydrates.

Once the main fuel runs out, your body taps into alternative energy, ketones. This is ketosis, and the keto diet’s macros are meant to keep you in this state to burn more fat.

The best way to reach and maintain ketosis is to limit your carbohydrate intakes to 5-10% of your total calories.

For many, the daily limit is about 50 grams of net carbs.

And as for the fat intake, 75% or more of your daily calories should come from fat.

Considering one medium apple contains 21g net carbs and 25g total carbs, this carb limit is stringent, to say the least.

This means that you have to avoid anything high in carbs.

How to Make a Keto Smoothie 

To make a keto smoothie that’s both nutritionally satisfying and delicious to taste, you need the right ingredients. 

Since the keto diet limits carbs, you need keto-friendly ingredients.

While each recipe card has a different ingredient combo, here are some of the staple items you should have on hand for keto smoothies. 

Liquids:

  • Full-fat coconut milk 
  • Coconut milk
  • heavy cream
  • Unsweetened almond milk Cashew milk
  • Plain Greek yogurt 
  • Coconut water
  • Black Coffee

Fruits and Veggies:

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Watermelon
  • Avocado
  • Celery
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Other greens
  • Cilantro
  • Mint

Flavors:

  • Nut butter (almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter)
  • Nuts and seeds (peanuts, almonds, macadamia nuts)
  • Keto sweeteners (monk fruit)
  • Lemon juice /Lime juice
  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Matcha powder
  • Sugar-free chocolate
  • Cacao powder

Optional Add-ons:

  • Ice cubes
  • Collagen
  • Protein powders
  • Calcium
  • MCT oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • Cacao nibs

Having these low-carb ingredients in the fridge/ pantry will make it easier for you to whip your keto smoothie in minutes. 

Step 1: Choose a liquid

The first step of making a keto smoothie is to choose your liquid. You don’t have to stick to one and can combine a few. 

To make a creamy smoothie, you need thicker liquid like yogurt and coconut cream. 

Also if you are adding other thickening ingredients like avocado and cauliflower, you may want to stick to thinner liquid like almond milk. 

Also, liquids offer an easy way to make your low-carb drinks high fat. Pick a liquid rich in fat. If not, be sure to add other fat sources like MCT oil to supplement your fat intake. 

Regardless of your liquid choice, be sure to pick an unsweetened, plain variety to avoid sugar.

Step 2: Add Fruits/Vegetables

The Keto diet is mostly void of fruits, but some of these lowest-carb fruits can still make the cut. Fruits like acai, avocados, blackberries, and watermelon are amongst the lowest in sugar content. 

You can use either fresh or frozen fruits, but some fruits like acai and star fruits mostly come in a puree. That’s perfectly okay and actually helps add creaminess and velvety texture to your drink. 

Low-carb vegetables are an essential part of a low-carb lifestyle. They help add vitamins and minerals to your keto recipe. With the right flavor combo, you often even taste the bitterness. 

Step 3: Add Flavors and Textures

This is the best part of making a keto smoothie. If you are looking for a keto recipe to make your low-carb breakfast smoothie, add peanut butter. Your keto smoothie can have your favorite breakfast flavors like peanut butter and jelly with raspberries. 

If you are a chocolateholic, you can add in a teaspoon of cacao powder to make your drink a chocolate-heaven. 

Also, be sure to add your choice of sugar-free sweetener if your other ingredients lack sweetness. Stevia and monk fruit are naturally derived sweeteners and a great choice if you want to avoid artificial sweeteners. 

Step 4: Add Optional Add-ons

Whether it’s whipped cream or a dash of matcha powder, add-ons truly add real value to your keto smoothie. 

This is also where you can include an additional dose of fat to make it truly fit for your keto lifestyle. Play with different optional ingredients to make your drink a real treat on a hot day. 

Below I will share 7 of my favorites smoothie recipes you can enjoy on your low-carb diet, keto.

  1. Yes you can pick up I want smoothies to make me more healthier I have the restaurant card number take more vitamins she used to make more stronger exercise room all your long

  2. Hi there,

    Thanks for leaving your comment.

    You can substitute it with white egg protein powder if insulin resistance is an issue.

    It may just be me thinking this but whey protein powder is still a high-protein, low-carb powder that can help build lean muscle mass. Feel free to take it out of the recipe and use other keto-friendly protein powder alternatives like white egg protein powder.

    Thanks,
    Tina

  3. Just tried Blueberries smoothie and it was a little to sweet for me and didn’t use sweetener ????, maybe it was the coconut cream ????
    But it was delicious ????

  4. Ingrid,

    So glad you tried out the smoothie recipe.
    You can totally opt out on the sweetener if you find the smoothie sweet enough without it.
    Also, was your coconut cream flavored/sweetened?
    Those things can make a difference too.

    Hope you find the right balance of those ingredients for your taste buds!

    Thanks,
    Tina

  5. Thanks for the recipes. Haven’t try any but they looks good. I will definitely leave a come when I try it.

  6. Hi Carol,
    Thank you for asking!
    Whey protein powder contains whey, the protein found in milk. Vanilla powder, on the other hand, is powdered pure vanilla extract free of alcohol and sugar.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,
    Tina

  7. Hi Karen,

    MCT is short for Medium-Chain Triglycerides.

    They are most often found in coconut oil and metabolized in the body differently by going straight to the liver from the gut. They are also said to be easier for digestion and provide quick, clean energy, especially for your brain.

    You see this MCT oil a lot in keto diet recipes!

    Hope this helps.
    Tina

  8. I seen these smoothie recipes. Looks so yummy. My question is, can you just have these instead of the meals and snacks

  9. Hi Sonya,

    Thank you for your comment and great question. Yes, you can absolutely have them as a snack or a meal like breakfast.
    I’m not a huge breakfast eater, so this works fine for me.

    This totally depends on your typical meal preference, but if you are a light eater, I would say you’ll find these smoothies pretty filling.

    Hope this helps.
    Tina

  10. Love all the berrie smoothies. Put flak speed in instead of protein powder and was full with half a glass❤

  11. I am not doing keto, but I like smoothies. I have been making one for breakfast since February, and I could use some new ideas.

    However, I don’t like coconut. Anything I can use as substitutes for coconut oil, coconut butter and MCT that will not take away from the taste of these smoothie recipes??

  12. The Keto Matcha Avacado Green smoothie is fantastic. I throw some fresh basil in with it. It’s so fresh tasting. (But I love basil )
    Thanks so much for the recipes. Just what I needed.
    Can’t wait to try the rest!!

  13. Bonjour, je trouve vos recettes très intéressantes.
    Je ne pratique pas le ceto, mais il m’est recommandé de manger environ 50g de protéines par repas et d’avoir peux de glucides.
    Comment je pourrais augmenter mes protéines dans vos smoothies.

  14. These recipes look good! My goal is to not exceed more than a 15g net carb. I want to try avocado and matcha smoothie, but the carb was a bit high for me. Is that a net carb that you indicated below this recipe? Thanks!

  15. Thanks for the recipes ???? just wondering why you don’t use coconut milk or dairy milk as they are much lower carbs? I have insulin resistance, so I don’t use any processed powders either, and nothing with soy which most whey and protein powders contain. Could I substitute an egg?

  16. Hi Lee,

    It’s total carbs just to be safe.
    I used MyFitnessPal to come up with the nutrition info, and unfortunately for these, it didn’t give me the net carb count.
    It just stated “carbs”, so I’d assume total carbs.

    Taking out items like chia seeds, protein powders, and hemp seeds may help.

    Hope this helps.

    Best,
    Tina

  17. Hello Tina,
    The recipes for the milkshake are great!!
    Now I need to ask you, if I want to substitute a meal with protein powder, what would be the best protein I should buy? I would need one that does not have so many addictives and sugar.
    Thank you

  18. Hi veey happy to read these recipes as I have recently been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes so sugar and carbs are can you tell. me what peptides are and where to find them

  19. There’s no substitute for healthy eating. I particularly like the blueberry smoothie.

  20. For those concerned with carbs, you can substitute almond or coconut milk with flax seed milk which has about 1 g per cup. I use Good Karma brand.

  21. Hey Tina! How long would these smoothies keep? Can you make them the day before in an airtight container like a mason jar with lid….without the taste changing? Thanks!

  22. Hi Megs,

    They are always best fresh, and I never made them a day in advance… I would say a few hours is fine but overnight may change the texture a bit.

    I’m sorry I’m not being really useful here… Maybe I just have to try it to see if they hold up for a day.

    Best,
    Tina

  23. I am not familiar with coconut cream or almond butter. Can you please tell me a brand for these items and where to find them in the stores? Are they with the dairy items? Thanks

  24. The shakes look tastie, but I would like a vanilla shake, can you send information on how I could make one.

  25. So what’s the differece between south beach and keto ? South beach also is no sugars no carbs very strict the first two weeks

  26. “These no carbs Smoothies are high in fat, fiber, and sugar-free”.????
    The blueberry ones has 11.26 grams of carbs!!!
    I only saw that after making it and drinking it. very yummy, but way too many carbs ;-(
