Keto Blueberry Smoothie
Over the past few months, I’ve been changing up my breakfasts. Instead of my usual toast or oatmeal, I’ve been trying to use up all my freezer staple ingredients. Before we went into a country wide lockdown, I loaded my freezer with plenty of fresh vegetables and of course, plenty of berries.
Contrary to popular belief, certain fruits are suitable for a keto diet. Most berries are generally fine to include in moderation, and one of the best is blueberries. I have a few keto blueberry recipes and my usual stand bys are muffins or a quick bread but recently, I’ve loved using them in smoothies!
I’ve been meaning to share a keto blueberry smoothie recipe for quite some time. It’s the perfect quick and easy breakfast or works well as a post workout snack. It literally takes seconds to make and keeps me energized all morning.
No dairy and no refined sugar are needed, but you’d never tell. The texture is extra thick and creamy, and easily customizable. It is pleasantly sweet and bursting with blueberry flavor.
I met a friend for a workout last week and made us these smoothies beforehand and he could NOT believe that it was low carb- It gave so much energy and tasted delicious!
How do you make a keto blueberry smoothie?
- Blueberries– Frozen blueberries must be used, not fresh. The latter will yield a much thinner smoothie.
- Milk of choice– I used unsweetened coconut milk, but any low carb milk can be used.
- Almond butter– Adds extra staying power and a richer flavor. Peanut butter or cashew butter can also be used.
Start by adding all your ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until thick and creamy. Pour into glasses and enjoy immediately.
Tips to make the best low carb blueberry smoothie
- For a richer smoothie, you can replace some of the milk with heavy cream or keto condensed milk.
- If you are a fan of extra thick smoothies, add 1 cup of ice cubes to the blender.
- This smoothie is not overly sweet, relying on the blueberries for sweetness. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite sweetener.
- For an added protein boost, add 1-2 scoops of your favorite keto protein powder.
Storing and freezing the smoothie
- To store: This smoothie is best enjoyed within 24 hours. However, you can store it for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Be sure to whisk it well prior to drinking, in case there has been any separation.
- To freeze: Place the smoothie into an ice cube tray or shallow container. When ready to enjoy, pour into the blender and re-blend until smooth and creamy.
