Few things get me out of bed faster than the promise of a light and refreshing strawberry smoothie. 

My keto smoothie recipe uses strawberries (my favorite low-carb fruit!) and transforms it into a creamy smoothie. It has the texture and flavor of soft-serve ice cream, but like guilt-free ice cream, that’s actually good for you!

Why I love this recipe

  • Made with 3 ingredients. Not including the ice, all you need is milk, condensed milk (or yogurt), and strawberries!
  • Naturally sweetened. There are no bananas, no syrups, no sweeteners, nada. All the sweetness comes naturally from the strawberries. 
  • Easy to customize. I’ve made this smoothie a million different ways, and as long as you get the proper ratio of ingredients, it’s guaranteed to taste divine.
  • A healthy treat. Strawberries are naturally high in fiber and antioxidants while being low in carbs and calories. It’s a win-win!

★★★★★ REVIEW 

“This smoothie recipe is AMAZING and so simple to make. My husband and I LOVE it. I made the keto condensed milk, and I think that’s the game changer. Thanks so much for sharing.”Rita

Ingredients needed

  • 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. Since we’re adding ice, you can use fresh or frozen strawberries.

How to make a keto smoothie

Step 1- Blend. In a high speed blender, add the milk, condensed milk, and ice cubes. Blend until combined, then add the strawberries and blend until smooth. 

Step 2- Serve. Pour the mixture into four glasses and enjoy.

Arman’s recipe tips

  • Make it even creamier. Swap the milk for heavy cream or canned unsweetened coconut milk. 
  • Bulk it up. Add a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder. 
  • Add a touch of sweetness. I know I said this smoothie doesn’t NEED sweetener, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add it because you want to. Give the smoothie a taste and add a little erythritol, monk fruit, or keto maple syrup if you think it’s needed. 
  • Add some healthy fats, like avocado, chia seeds, flax seeds, or MCT oil.

Variations

  • Mixed berry. Swap the strawberries for a combination of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. 
  • Chocolate. Add 2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder. 
  • Spinach. Add 1-2 cups of baby spinach leaves, 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and a few sprigs of fresh mint leaves. 
  • Strawberry cheesecake. Add 2 tablespoons of softened cream cheese and swap the milk for heavy cream. 
  • Strawberry almond butter. Add 2 tablespoons of almond butter (or any nut butter you like).

Ingredients  

Instructions 

  • In a high speed blender, add your milk, condensed milk (or Greek yogurt), and ice, and blend until combined. Add the strawberries and blend until the desired texture is achieved.
  • Pour the smoothie into four glasses and enjoy it immediately.

Notes

TO STORE: While the strawberry smoothie is best enjoyed fresh, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Any longer and you’ll find the smoothie starts to separate. 
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.

    I used full fat Greek yogurt and vanilla almond milk with this smoothie. I also threw in some leftover avocado slices. Smoothie is very creamy. Flavor is good. Thinking of trying it with the sugar free condensed milk in the future.

    I’m adding this to my weekly recipes. Next time I will try adding in more strawberries and omitting the ice to get more strawberry flavor. This is a really forgiving recipe and it’s easy to modify. Glad I stumbled upon it.
