5 Delicious Low-Carb Keto Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

Low-carb Keto smoothie recipes





A Keto smoothie is not like your typical favorite healthy smoothie.

For one, it needs to be low in carbs and sugar when most smoothie recipes are loaded with fruits.

And fruits by definitions are pretty much carbs and sugar, which is why most of them are off-limits on a Keto diet.

So how do you make a tasty Keto approved smoothie that won’t kick you out of ketosis?

Thankfully, all it takes is a few ingredient swaps.

By swapping a couple of foods, you can have a tasty filling perfectly keto smoothie.

  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

    1. 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

  2. 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 😋

    1. 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

    1. 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

    1. 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

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

    1. 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

  4. 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??

  5. 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!!

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

    1. 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

  8. 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?

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.
