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:
- 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.
- Start by combining all ingredients in the jug of a high-speed blender in no particular order.
- Adjust the thickness of the smoothie by adding more ice cubes. You can also make it creamier by adding more heavy cream.
- Pour the keto smoothie in two tall glasses.
- Decorate the smoothies with unsweetened whipped cream, sliced strawberries, and slivered almonds.
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.
This keto smoothie recipe is low-carb, with no added sugar, and full of healthy fats. Keto or not, this strawberry smoothie with almond milk will make everyone happy.
If you are allergic to some of the ingredients, you can make the following substitutions:
- Strawberries: Swap for another low-carb fresh fruit.
- Heavy Cream: Swap for a dairy-free alternative like thick coconut cream.
