If you’re looking for a refreshing and satisfying drink that fits your keto lifestyle, look no further than this delicious keto smoothie made with only 3 ingredients.

This smoothie is packed with healthy fats, protein, and fiber from ingredients like almond milk, heavy cream, and strawberries. The best part is that this smoothie has only 6 grams of net carbs per serving, so you can enjoy it without guilt. Try this easy and tasty recipe today and see for yourself how good keto can be.

You might have tried many of my low-carb smoothies, such as my Keto Peanut Butter Smoothie, Keto Chocolate Smoothie, or Keto Blueberry Smoothie.

Strawberry is not the lowest-carb berry, compared to raspberries, but still fine if eaten in moderation!

It is much easier than ice cream to make, gluten-free, and with a dairy-free option!

And if you want some great keto strawberry baking recipes to pair with this smoothie, add one of my keto strawberry muffins or strawberry pop tarts on the side!

How To Make Keto Smoothie

The good news is that a keto smoothie is very easy to make at home.


All you need to make a creamy, frothy smoothie with strawberries are:

Ingredients for Keto Smoothie in small bowls and ramekins with labels.
  • Frozen Strawberries – Frozen fruits create frothy creamy smoothies without the need for bananas that are not keto-friendly!
  • Almond Milk – or unsweetened coconut milk for a strawberry coconut keto smoothie.
  • Heavy Cream – or coconut cream for a dairy-free option. You can also make this keto smoothie with yogurt using plain yogurt, like Greek yogurt. Finally, the last option is to make a keto smoothie with cream cheese. This option gives the drink a similar taste and texture to a Starbucks strawberry and cream Frappuccino!
  • Erythritol – or xylitol for sweetness. You can replace this with stevia drops.
  • Vanilla Extract – This is optional.
  • Ice Cubes – This is optional if you use frozen strawberries.


Step-by-step instructions on how to make a keto smoothie.
  1. Start by combining all ingredients in the jug of a high-speed blender in no particular order.
  2. Adjust the thickness of the smoothie by adding more ice cubes. You can also make it creamier by adding more heavy cream.
  3. Pour the keto smoothie in two tall glasses.
  4. Decorate the smoothies with unsweetened whipped cream, sliced strawberries, and slivered almonds.

Smoothie Add-Ons

There are so many ways you can improve this keto smoothie recipe by adding or changing some of the original recipe ingredients.

For example, you can improve the creaminess of this keto smoothie with strawberries by adding:

  • Ripe avocado – add 1/4 ripe avocado flesh for a super-thick shake. It will darken the color of your smoothie but tastes amazing.
  • Cream cheese – dreaming about a strawberry cheesecake smoothie? Add 2 tablespoons of soft cream cheese to your blender, or swap the heavy cream with the same amount of cream cheese.
  • Chia seeds – for a boost of protein and fiber, add 1 teaspoon to keep the net carbs in control.
  • Protein powder – add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite keto protein powder.

Allergy Swaps
