6 Keto Smoothies That Will Keep You Full for Hours
How to make a keto smoothie
Green smoothies are nutrient powerhouses, combining numerous super foods into one tasty drink. This one has pear, bell pepper, spinach, avocado, and more, to provide a healthy dose of good-for-you ingredients. Watch this video for the demonstration.
It doesn’t get simpler than this: Mancinelli recommends blending up a few strawberries with some full-fat coconut milk or watered-down coconut cream. One medium strawberry has just 1 gram of carbs. You can also add a tiny bit of vanilla extract as an aromatic, or some coconut flakes or chia seeds for texture. Pro tip: Opt for frozen strawberries for a frothy frozen drink.
Cinnamon not only lends a subtle spicy sweetness to whatever it graces, it also helps keep blood sugar balanced and cravings in check—just a couple reasons we love with this blend from Miller. It’s so good, you’d never guess it contains just 7 grams of carbs!
Chai Pumpkin Keto Smoothie
Together, warming chai spices, creamy coconut milk and avocado, and pumpkin puree create an illusion of sweetness that’s maybe not quite pumpkin pie in a glass, but good enough to quell your dessert cravings. This fiber-rich blend, created by keto blogger Leanne Vogel of Healthful Pursuit, makes an extra-hefty serving, which we recommend cutting in half.
Keto Chocolate Smoothie
Maybe you can’t have a real milkshake, but this chocolate smoothie from Elana’s Pantry sure comes close, thanks to an extra thick and creamy combo of coconut milk, ground chia seeds, protein powder, dark chocolate, and ice. You can even top it all off with some unsweetened whipped cream. A small pinch of stevia is optional and perfectly acceptable if you’re gradually weaning yourself off of sweeteners instead of going cold turkey.
Minty Cool Smoothie
When that warm weather rolls in, you want something light and fresh, and this cooling blend from Miller fits the bill. The creaminess of the coconut milk and refreshing, subtly sweet mint flavor counter the earthiness of this veggie-heavy blend.
Acai Almond Butter Smoothie
Like other berries, acai is ultra high in antioxidants and low in carbs, making it a great addition to a keto smoothie. This recipe from Perfect Keto—featuring ingredients like acai, almond butter, collagen protein, vanilla, and avocado—sounds like it would taste like peanut butter and jelly’s healthier, low-carb cousin. You can pick up pouches of unsweetened, frozen acai purée at most healthy grocery stores (think: Whole Foods, Wegmans, Sprouts).
