Ingredients For A Perfect Keto Smoothie

1. The Right Amount of Liquid

We’re not opposed to eating a smoothie with a spoon, but making a super thick shape will defeat the purpose of grabbing a keto shake to go. For a smooth, easy slurp, make sure you add enough liquid.

We used different liquids in the recipes below. Feel free to substitute depending on the ones that taste best to your palate. Mix and match to create unique tastes and textures.

Ones we love include:

  • High-fat, unsweetened coconut milk
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • Heavy cream
  • Water

2. Fat

If you’re making a keto smoothie for breakfast or a midday snack, it’s going to have to be filling so you don’t accidentally fall into the office cookies when you feel an energy dip. Adding fat to a shake will satisfying your hunger as well as continue to boost your body into ketosis.

Examples of yummy fats to use in keto smoothies include:

  • Almond butter
  • Pecan butter
  • MCT oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Avocados

3. Substitute Veggies Instead Of Fruit

Some people can’t get beyond the idea that fruit must be a key ingredient in all smoothies. While there are some fruits, in small amounts, which are keto-friendly and we do include them in recipes below, vegetables are also an excellent addition to your favorite shake.

Additionally, some people get turned off by eating certain veggies, such as kale. When you’re not used to them, rough textures can be difficult to choke down. Pulsing hard-to-eat vegetables in a blender makes them so much more tolerable and the vibrant colors make them fun to drink.

Some of the vegetables we used, include:

  • Kale
  • Cucumber
  • Avocado
  • Spinach

The First Rule Of Keto Smoothies: There Are No Rules

The keto smoothie recipes below are the ones which passed our rigorous taste tests and tickled our taste buds. We focused on the ones which appealed to a wide range of taste palates.

The best part of smoothies is that they’re so easy, even a child can make them. Simply place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until your desired consistency. If you add a keto-friendly sweetener, such as Stevia, we do advise waiting until the rest of the ingredients are blended together before doing so. The longer you’re on the keto diet, the less you’ll find that you will need the sweetness.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Smoothie With Coconut Milk

Keto smoothie peanut butter ideas abound all over the internet so naturally we had to try them all. We settled on the combination of chocolate and peanut butter because it is so decadent and delicious. Don’t leave out the avocado, you can’t even taste its presence but it really elevates this drink and gives it a light and silky texture we can’t get enough of.

1 Whole avocado, peeled and pitted with the flesh scraped out

2 cups Unsweetened full-fat coconut milk

2 cups Crushed ice or ice cubes

2 tablespoons Unsweetened cocoa powder

4 tablespoons Natural creamy peanut butter

Stevia drops, optional

Vegan Keto Smoothie

There is a misconception when it comes to the keto diet that it can’t vegan. Not only is that completely untrue, but actually, there are many benefits to incorporating low-carb veggies into your keto meal plan. Whereas traditional low-carb diets have the reputation of piling cheese on top of eggs and bacon, the keto diet emphasizes clean eating and high-fiber, low-carb vegetables to ensure your body functions at its healthiest.

Pecan Pie Smoothie

Pecan butter is slightly salty with a tinge of sweetness is an addictive combination. Drinking this may not remind you of biting into a pecan pie, but it will give you a satisfying taste of your favorite flavors.
