How to make a keto smoothie
Because you’re trying to make a smoothie that’s packed with fats and proteins, two components you’ll find in pretty much any healthy, keto-friendly, low-carb smoothie are:
- Fatty base and liquid – full-fat coconut or whole milk, avocado or nut butter if using a plant-based milk, whole milk with yogurt or cottage cheese
- Extra fat or protein – chia seeds, hemp seeds, ground flaxseed, yogurt, cottage cheese, a drizzle of oil like coconut, walnut, MCT
Other additions that you may or may not want to include:
- Fruits – mainly berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries
- Greens – leafy greens like kale or spinach, cucumber, broccoli
If you just want to start off with something simple, here’s an easy go-to recipe.
- Step 1. Add avocado, milk, and berries to a blender and blend. We prefer using frozen fruit so that there’s no need to add extra ice.
- Step 2. Pour into cup and top with chia seeds.
- Step 3. Enjoy!
If this seems too plain for you, then feel free to add other desired ingredients. You can use a bit of sweetener as well, but we find that the berries offer enough sweetness that you can get away without it.

Keto kale smoothie
Going through keto flu is not the most wonderful feeling in the world (think nausea, fatigue, possible fever, and other unpleansantries).
To combat this, you should keep hydrated, get your vitamins, and especially make sure you’re getting plenty of magnesium and sodium to replenish electrolytes. This smoothie has all that with kale, berries, and even pink Himalayan salt, which makes the taste surprisingly pleasant. Perfect for breakfast or even before bed, since it’s possible for the body to become dehydrated overnight leaving you with a headache in the morning. It’s like a soothing keto tea, but more cold and substantial for your stomach.

Keto smoothies may seem like an oxymoron when you think about it.

- ½ ripe avocado
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ½ cup frozen mixed berries

Add avocado, milk, and berries to a blender and blend. I prefer using frozen fruit so I don’t have to add extra ice.
Pour into cup and top with chia seeds.
