How To Make Keto Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie
This is the easiest keto chocolate smoothie ever. All you need are a few simple low-carb ingredients and 5 minutes to make it.
- Frozen raspberries – it’s better to use frozen berries because they increase the creamy texture of the smoothie.
- Ice cubes
- Unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk for a nut-free option. Don’t use regular milk, it’s not keto-friendly.
- Chia seeds – this adds protein, healthy fats, and fiber. Chia seeds also add creaminess to the smoothie recipe.
- Erythritol or stevia drops to sweeten. Learn how to pick your keto sweetener.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Vanilla extract
Place all the ingredients in a blender jug or Nutribullet and blend on the high-speed setting until all the ingredients come together into a thick chocolate texture.
Give it a taste, and adjust it to your liking.
We all have different tastes and for some, smoothies should be thicker or runner, or even sweeter. Below are my tips to adjust your smoothie to your liking:
- Sweetness – if your keto smoothie is not sweet enough add more erythritol 1 teaspoon at a time and blend to incorporate.
- Texture – adding more ice cubes or frozen low-carb vegetables like frozen cauliflower or frozen zucchinis are keto tricks to thicken up smoothies without adding carbs. On the other hand, you can make this smoothie runnier by adding more almond milk or decreasing the number of ice cubes.
This keto raspberry smoothie is delicious on its own but even better with some toppings like:
- Sugar-free dark chocolate chips – you can make your own with my sugar-free chocolate chip recipe.
- Fresh raspberries
- Chopped peanuts
- Sliced almonds
- Unsweetened desiccated coconut
- Whipped cream – you can use coconut whipped cream as a dairy-free keto-friendly option.
You can boost the nutrition profile of this smoothie by adding some extra ingredients like :
- Protein powder – add about 1 tablespoon.
- Hemp seeds – boost protein and healthy fat.
- Spinach – to boost your greens.
- Avocado for a boost of creaminess, healthy fats, and fiber.
- MCT oil – on a ketogenic diet we often struggle to reach our fat macros and adding MCT oil, about 1 teaspoon in your drink, helps you reach your goals.
You can freeze this low carb raspberry smoothie into popsicle molds to make keto chocolate raspberry popsicles.
However, I don’t recommend storing smoothies in the fridge because they split into layers and lose all their texture.
