Five Keto Smoothie Recipes For When You’re In A Hurry

If you’ve been on social media lately, you’ve likely seen your favorite celebrities or even friends talking about their new favorite keto smoothie recipes. It’s a cool sounding word, but many people don’t really know what it means.

Among the many popular diets we see being promoted on a daily basis, the keto diet has become one of the most popular. It’s a low carb-high fat diet that consists of getting nearly 70-80% of your calories from fat.

The keto diet is known for stimulating ketosis inside our bodies. Ketosis is when our body turns to ketones in the liver as a source of energy instead of glucose. Ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats, are known to be a more efficient source of energy.

Since fruit, yogurt, and milk are generally high in carbs, many people interested in the keto diet think they have to say goodbye to their morning smoothie. Luckily, that’s not the case. There are a wide range of delicious breakfast smoothie recipes you can make when on the keto diet -- and we’re going to share a few of them with you!

All of these recipes are extremely easy to make and only require a set of measuring utensils and a blender. Within a few minutes, you’ll have a smoothie that’s ready to go! 

  1. Triple Berry Smoothie - combine 1 cup of water, ½ cup of mixed berries, ½ of an avocado, 2 cups of spinach, and 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds into the blender
  2. Chocolate Peanut Butter - combine 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of cacao powder, ¼ cup of heavy cream, and 1 cup of ice into the blender
  3. Cinnamon Raspberry - combine 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, ½ cup of frozen raspberries, 1 cup of kale, 2 tablespoons of almond butter, and ⅛ tablespoon of cinnamon into the blender
  4. Key Lime Pie - combine 1 cup of water, ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk, ¼ cup of cashews, 1 cup of spinach or kale, 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut, and 2 tablespoons of lime juice into the blender
  5. Coconut Blackberry - combine ½ cup of full-fat coconut milk, ½ cup of frozen blackberries, 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut, and 5-10 mint leaves into the blender

I know we mentioned fruit as being high in carbs, but berries are known to be a rather low-carb fruit and are best-suited for breakfast smoothie recipes for anyone following the keto diet. That’s what makes the Triple Berry recipe so good and tasty, but you can experiment as you wish with the berries.

Cinnamon Raspberry and Key Lime Pie are two of our favorite kale smoothie recipes. Kale is an essential dark leafy green vegetable in the keto diet, just like spinach. The two can be used together or interchangeably.

If you’re someone who likes more protein in their kale smoothie recipes, you can always add kale to the Chocolate Peanut Butter recipe. You can also swap out the spinach with kale in the Triple Berry smoothie recipe. It’s a versatile nutrient to add to any smoothie, really!

The recipes listed above are some of our favorite weight loss smoothie recipes, but now it’s time to experiment and make your own keto smoothie recipes. There’s no right or wrong way to do it, especially since everyone has their own preferences.

Feel free to leave your favorite weight loss smoothie recipes below so we can all try them ourselves! We can’t wait to hear your ideas and will continue to share ours as we become obsessed with more.
