How to make keto smoothies
- Milk- I use unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk, but any keto milk will work.
- Keto condensed milk- Just a little bit for extra richness, sweetness, AND thickness. I used sugar free condensed milk. You can also use Greek yogurt.
- Ice- Crushed ice gives the smoothie thickness and bulk, without added carbs or calories!
- Strawberries- Fresh or frozen.
In a high speed blender, combine your milk, condensed milk, and ice, and blend until the ice has broken down. Add the frozen strawberries and blend until creamy and smooth. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
Are strawberries keto?
Contrary to popular belief, strawberries are one of the few fruits allowed on a keto diet. In fact, they are the best fruit to have, yielding very few carbs and sugars.
Per 1 cup serving of strawberries, you’ll clock in 35 calories and a mere 4 grams net carbs.
Tips to make the best keto strawberry smoothie
- For an even richer smoothie, swap out the milk for heavy cream.
- If you’d like a add extra protein to this, add 1/4 cup of your favorite protein powder to it.
- If you prefer thicker smoothies, add extra ice. For thinner smoothies, add more milk.
Flavor add-ins and variations
While this smoothie tastes delicious on its own, jazz it up with some other flavor combinations!
- Coconut- Use coconut milk and swap out half the strawberries for frozen coconut chunks.
- Chocolate- Add 2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder.
- Banana- Not keto friendly but a classic smoothie addition. Add 1 large frozen banana, chopped.
- Avocado- Add 1/2 large avocado or 1/4 cup frozen avocado chunks.
- Spinach- Add 1-2 cups baby spinach leaves and 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
Storing and freezing instructions
- To store: While smoothies is best enjoyed fresh, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Any longer and you’ll find the smoothie separates.
- To freeze: The smoothie cannot be frozen as a whole. Instead, pour the smoothie mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze. When ready to enjoy, break out the smoothie cubes into a blender and blend until thick and smooth. Frozen smoothie cubes can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months.
