How To Make Berry Smoothie Without Yogurt

Additionally to its great texture, this frozen berry smoothie recipe is easy, ready in 5 minutes, and healthy.

Any blender, whatever its power, can make this keto berry smoothie in no time.


All you need are 4 simple ingredients, including:

  • Frozen blueberry and raspberry – I love to pick berries from my garden in summer and freeze them for the rest of the year. Otherwise, you can use frozen berries from the store or quickly freeze your fresh berries for 4 hours before using them in this recipe.
  • Coconut cream – canned coconut cream is the best to add an extra thick creamy texture to your healthy berry smoothie. If you are on a keto diet, using full-fat coconut cream is a great option to boost your fat-burning. And it will make the perfect keto smoothie. On the other hand, if you are looking for a low-carb berry smoothie with few calories, use light coconut milk. It will have the same texture without the extra calories.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – keep reading to learn more about its benefits in this frozen berry smoothie recipe.

Smoothie Milk And Yogurt Alternatives

Alternatively, let me tell you how to make a smoothie without yogurt or milk that is low-carb, with a delicious creamy texture.

  1. Frozen berries – freezing berries will convert the natural water of the berry into ice. This adds the most delicious thick, creamy texture to your low-carb smoothies. Most berries are keto-approved fruits except cherry.
  2. Cream – 1/2 cup of coconut cream is the best choice for a diabetic-friendly smoothie. It indeed contains no natural sugar but otherwise, use heavy cream.
  3. Avocado – only 1/4 avocado is enough to transform any single smoothie into creamy heaven. Careful, adding avocado in this frozen berry smoothie will turn the color to brown.
  4. Chia seeds add 1 or 2 teaspoons to this recipe for extra thickness, protein, and fiber.
  5. Flaxseed meal – add 1 teaspoon per serving. It will boost your drink with healthy omega-3!
  6. Hemp seed powder – add 1 tablespoon per serving. This will also add a good bunch of healthy fat, protein, and vitamins.
  7. Ground nuts – add 1 tablespoon of almond meal or hazelnut meal.
  8. Ice – add 1 or 2 ice cubes per serving.

There are plenty of other ways to thicken a smoothie without yogurt or milk.

But these options above are ideal for a low-carb keto diet because they will not add any fructose, sugar, or carbs to your drink.

Using Unsweetened Almond Milk

Unsweetened almond milk is the best dairy-free milk for this keto berry smoothie. Let me tell you why I love to use almond milk in my keto berry smoothie.

  1. First, it has no sugar added and only 1 gram of net carbs per cup. It is one of the main reasons why it is the safest milk option for low-carb smoothies for diabetics. Almond milk doesn’t spike the blood sugar level. On the contrary, regular milk or yogurt contains natural sugar from lactose that could keep you out of ketosis.
  2. Next, it is bland in flavor. It is a very good point to enjoy the full flavor of your healthy berry smoothie.
  3. Finally, it contains only 40 calories per cup, which makes your frozen berry smoothie one of the healthiest berry smoothies.

Note that the sugar in this recipe comes naturally from berries.

Berries are the lowest sugar, and fructose content and therefore are approved on a keto low-carb diet in moderation.

If you love this frozen berry smoothie recipe, then I recommend trying my mixed berry smoothie with almond milk!

  • If you are using fresh berries, place them on a plate covered with parchment paper, make sure they don't overlap, and freeze overnight or at least 4 hours.
  • In a blender, add frozen blueberry, frozen raspberry, cream, and unsweetened almond milk.
  • Add sweetener if desired. This is optional. If you have a sweet tooth, I recommend adding some sugar-free stevia drops or Monk fruit crystal.
  • Add 1 or 2 ice cubes for an icee/slushie-like texture, if desired.
  • Blend on high speed until smooth, about 45 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Enjoy immediately.


  • Store leftover in the fridge. The next day, bring it back to the blender with 2-3 ice cubes to get it frothy again.

    10 Thoughts On Frozen Berry Smoothie Without Yogurt or Milk
  1. 5 stars
    Hi, how can I get more protein in this smoothie without protein powder? My “blendjet” blender was already full with these ingredients. This is the second smoothie I’ve ever made 😉 Thanks.

  2. “hi! would it be the same calories if you replaced heavy cream with full fat greek yoghurt?” Im sorry,im referring to your peanut butter/choc smoothie 🙁

    • No it won’t be the same, usually Greek yoghurt contains 2 to 3 times less calories than heavy cream. Use a nutrition app to enter the recipe in it using the brand of each ingredients you used for precision on your nutrition panel. Each full fat greek yoghurt brands will have different calories/fat panel too. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine

  3. 5 stars
    Hi. I love this smoothie, it’s absolutely delicious. But I’m curious about the nutrition value you have posted. 1/2 cup coconut cream has about 240 calories by itself, how do you calculate that this smoothie only has 129?

    • I am so glad you enjoy the smootie! Coconut cream has no regulation regarding the amount of fat it contains that is why you will find some brand showing 20% while others contains up to 35%. Consequently, the calories in coconut cream depends of the brand you are using. It won’t impact the carbs of the recipe tho as fat are fat and not carbs. If you follow calories I recommend you enter the recipe ingredients, using the exact coconut cream brand you are using in your app tracker. It will be perfectly accurate. Enjoy! XOXO Carine.
