This easy keto smoothie recipe only requires 4 simple ingredients, plus I give additional options to kick it up a notch. A smoothie is the best way to get in a quick breakfast first thing in the morning.
It is really hard to find a delicious smoothie recipe that is great for the keto diet. Regular smoothies at places like Tropical Smoothie usually have drinks with a lot of flavor, but also a lot of added sugar and high-carb ingredients. Luckily, it is really easy to make a great keto-friendly smoothie right at home using easy to find ingredients.
This berry cheesecake keto smoothie recipe has the most perfect creamy texture from the cream cheese. I will also give a lot of options just incase you decide you want to make any swaps or additions based on what you have on hand in your own kitchen. That way you can make a variety of smoothies the whole family will enjoy.
How to make the best keto smoothies
This easy keto smoothie recipe uses simple ingredients, but I provide swap options incase you want to make this keto recipe your own. The full printable recipe card with exact measurements is toward the bottom of the page.
Frozen strawberries: I prefer frozen strawberries in my keto breakfast smoothie over other berries, but you can definitely use any frozen berry you like. Keep in mind though, strawberries have the least amount of carbs of all the low-carb fruits. You could also use fresh berries.
Unsweetened almond milk: This has only 1 carb per serving. You could also use coconut milk or full-fat coconut milk if you want a high fat option, but keep in mind these will add to the carb intake.
Cream cheese: To make a berry cheesecake keto smoothie, you really need to add cream cheese. It provides that cheesecake flavor we know and love and it gives the smoothie thickness. For less thickness but still a creamy smoothie, you can use heavy cream or coconut cream.
Vanilla protein powder: I like to add some protein powder for a nice protein boost. Otherwise you have a keto smoothie that isn't very filling. I use Vanilla Premiere protein.
Low carb sweetener: This is optional, especially because the vanilla protein powder will provide the sweet flavor, along with the strawberries. You can use a monk fruit sweetener which is a great option also for a sweet smoothie without artificial sweeteners.
Additional Ingredients you may want to consider (some will add extra carbs):
- Extra fiber: chia seeds, greens powders, low-carb vegetables such as spinach or kale to make a keto green smoothie recipe.
- Fats: almond butter, natural peanut butter, MCT oil, coconut oil.
- Protein options: Collagen powder or collagen peptides
