Keto Strawberry Smoothie

When it comes to keto smoothie recipes, our favorites to make are a peanut butter smoothie, avocado smoothie, and this easy strawberry smoothie. 

As the year comes to a close, I’ve started focusing on making healthier choices. I consider myself to be quite a healthy eater. While I do enjoy a good cookie or brownie, they don’t make up a great proportion of my diet. 90% of the time, I avoid refined sugars and incorporate plenty of vegetables. My lunches and dinners always contain plenty of vegetables, whether that be a broccoli salad or a side of buffalo cauliflower wings. However, I’ve started to ensure my breakfasts tick the boxes too, and I’ve recently been loving a filling smoothie. 

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

As such, I’ve been meaning to share a keto strawberry smoothie for quite some time. It’s been one of my go-to breakfasts lately, seeing as I love starting my day on a sweet note. This smoothie only needs 3 main ingredients and takes less than a minute to prepare. Its texture is thick, creamy, and almost like soft-serve ice cream. It’s sweet and full of strawberry flavor. 

I’ve been away on vacation and been whipping up these smoothies for my friends I’m traveling with and NO ONE believes me when I tell them it is low carb- They think it is like dessert!

How do you make a low carb strawberry smoothie? 

The Ingredients

  • Milk of choice– I used unsweetened almond milk, but any milk can be used. 
  • 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– Frozen strawberries are preferred, but you can also use fresh ones. 

The Instructions

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!

Tips to make the best 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. If you prefer thinner smoothies, add more milk.
  • For a dairy free strawberry smoothie, replace the condensed milk with coconut condensed milk.

Flavor variations

While this strawberry 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 a strawberry smoothie

  • 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.
