Are Smoothies Keto?
Yes, smoothies can be keto-friendly if they are prepared with low-carb, high-fat ingredients. Traditional smoothies often contain high amounts of fruit, which can be rich in natural sugars and carbohydrates, making them less compatible with a strict ketogenic diet.
However, by using low-carb fruits and vegetables, incorporating healthy fats like avocado or coconut oil, and choosing unsweetened dairy or non-dairy alternatives, you can create keto-friendly smoothies.

Ingredients You’ll Need
A keto smoothie is an easy way to include more superfoods in your diet. You’ll be surprised to see how energized you feel after you drink a glass of smoothie every morning.
- Unsweetened coconut milk – The keto smoothie recipe starts with a base of 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk. The medium-chain fatty acid ( lauric acid ) found in coconut milk will be absorbed by the body for instant energy, lowers cholesterol levels, and improves blood pressure. Some studies show that coconut milk prevents heart attacks or strokes.
- Avocado – use ripe avocado to add that creamy texture.
- Leafy greens such as kale, spinach, romaine, or chard.
- Chia seeds are well known for their high content of essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals and antioxidants. Adding one tablespoon of chia seeds to your keto smoothie gives you almost 6g of fiber. The great thing about fiber is that it doesn’t raise blood sugar, so we won’t count it as a carb. Chia seeds also contain high-quality protein. Experts believe that chia seeds can help you lose weight because the protein in chia seeds reduces your appetite.
- Spirulina powder – Another superfood to add to your keto smoothie is spirulina powder. This blue-green alga can detox your body from heavy metals and helps heal candida. Scientists found that the pigment found in spirulina lower blood pressure and reduces cholesterol levels. Spirulina is used as an energy booster because it’s loaded with vitamins and minerals.
- Raspberries – make this smoothie super delicious. Use fresh or frozen berries.
- Sweetener – feel free to use your favorite low-carb sweetener. Just make sure that it is powdered to ensure it combines well.
- Vanilla extract – for a delicious flavor.
This keto smoothie is dairy-free, paleo, and also suitable for a vegan keto diet. In fact, it is an excellent choice for any healthy diet.
How to Make a Keto Green Smoothie?
Let me tell you that all you have to do is to add the ingredients to your blender and press the start button. In less than 5 minutes, you’ll have a healthy green detox smoothie to drink.
In a blender, combine the coconut milk, avocado, mixed greens or baby spinach, chia seeds, spirulina powder, fresh raspberries, sweetener, and vanilla extract.
Blend the ingredients until smooth and creamy, ensuring that all the ingredients are well combined.
Taste the smoothie and adjust the sweetness or thickness as desired. You can add more sweetener or coconut milk if needed.
Once the desired consistency and taste are achieved, pour the keto green smoothie into a glass.
Optionally, you can garnish the smoothie with a few fresh raspberries or a sprinkle of chia seeds for added visual appeal.
Enjoy your homemade Keto Green Smoothie immediately as a refreshing breakfast or a healthy snack.

How To Store The Leftovers
- Fridge: For optimal freshness and taste, it is recommended to consume green smoothies immediately after preparation. However, if needed, you can store this green smoothie in the refrigerator for up to one day. Please note that it may separate during storage. Simply give it a good mix or shake before consuming it to remix the ingredients and enjoy its delicious flavors once again.
- Freezer: I do not recommend freezing this smoothie because it will completely change its texture and taste.
Can I Make This Smoothie Ahead?
Yes! Smoothie meal prep may be done in a few different ways. If you want to consume the smoothie within 24 hours, prepare it as recommended and keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. Before you drink it, give it a good shake or a re-blend.
Another option would be to prepare all the ingredients and put them in freezer-safe bags, and when you want a smoothie, just put them in the blender and mix.
