How to Make a Low-Carb Smoothie

Crafting a low-carb smoothie that’s both nutritious and delightful requires selecting the right ingredients tailored to your dietary needs.

Since the low-carb lifestyle restricts carbohydrate intake, it’s essential to choose low-carb-friendly ingredients for your smoothies.

While the ingredient combinations may vary for each recipe, here’s a list of staple items commonly used in low-carb smoothies:


  • Full-fat coconut milk
  • Coconut milk
  • Heavy cream
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • Cashew milk
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Coconut water
  • Black coffee

Fruits and Veggies:

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Watermelon
  • Avocado
  • Celery
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Other greens
  • Cilantro
  • Mint


  • Nut butter (almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter)
  • Nuts and seeds (peanuts, almonds, macadamia nuts)
  • Low-carb sweeteners (monk fruit)
  • Lemon juice / Lime juice
  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Matcha powder
  • Sugar-free chocolate
  • Cacao powder

Optional Add-ons:

  • Ice cubes
  • Collagen
  • Protein powders
  • Calcium
  • MCT oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Whipped heavy whipping cream
  • Cacao nibs

Keeping these low-carb ingredients stocked in your kitchen will streamline the process of preparing your low-carb smoothie in no time.

Step 1: Choose a Liquid

Begin by selecting a liquid base for your low-carb smoothie. You can opt for a single liquid or combine multiple for varied flavors and textures.

For a creamy consistency, use thicker liquids like yogurt and coconut cream. If you’re adding ingredients like avocado and cauliflower for thickness, opt for thinner liquids like almond milk.

Ensure your chosen liquid is rich in healthy fats to support your low-carb, high-fat diet. Opt for unsweetened, plain varieties to avoid added sugars.

Step 2: Add Fruits/Vegetables

While the low-carb diet restricts fruit intake, some low-carb fruits can still be incorporated into your smoothies. Choose fruits such as acai, avocados, blackberries, and watermelon, which are low in sugar content.

Whether fresh or frozen, fruits like acai and star fruits often come in puree form, enhancing the creaminess of your smoothie.

Low-carb vegetables are also essential for adding vitamins and minerals to your smoothie while imparting unique flavor profiles.

Step 3: Add Flavors and Textures

Enhance the flavor and texture of your low-carb smoothie by incorporating your favorite ingredients. Whether it’s peanut butter for a breakfast-inspired blend or cacao powder for a chocolatey indulgence, tailor your smoothie to your preferences.

Include sugar-free sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit if additional sweetness is desired, avoiding artificial additives.

Step 4: Add Optional Add-ons

Elevate your low-carb smoothie with optional add-ons like whipped cream or matcha powder, offering additional flavor and nutritional benefits. Experiment with different ingredients to create a refreshing treat perfect for any occasion.

Stay tuned for 7 delicious low-carb smoothie recipes tailored to complement your low-carb lifestyle.

7 Easy Low-Carb Smoothie Recipes

How to Make a Keto Smoothie 

1. Chocolate Macadamia Nut Smoothie

Fortunately, chocolate remains a delightful option for those following a low-carb diet.

As an avid chocolate enthusiast, I find myself craving its rich taste daily. And with this smoothie recipe, indulging in chocolate becomes an effortless pleasure.

This chocolaty concoction not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also resembles a decadent dessert—a welcome treat for any occasion.

Rest assured, it aligns perfectly with your low-carb lifestyle and won’t disrupt your state of ketosis, allowing you to relish it guilt-free.

Moreover, it boasts the convenience of smoothies—quick, simple, and portable—ideal for hectic mornings when time is of the essence.

Loaded with healthy fats and essential nutrients, this smoothie provides a nourishing boost that keeps you satiated and energized throughout the day.

Macadamia nuts contribute beneficial monounsaturated fats, while cacao delivers a potent dose of antioxidants, promoting gut health and reducing inflammation.

By satisfying your sweet cravings without causing blood sugar spikes, this smoothie nurtures your body and sustains your vitality in a wholesome manner.

Make: 1 1/2 cups


  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons macadamia nuts
  • 1 teaspoon MCT oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons chia seed
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 stick of collagen peptides


  • Measure all your ingredients. Add all of them to a blender and hit blend. 
  • Run the blender for a few minutes until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • Pour into a glass and enjoy. If you are saving for later, be sure to store it in an airtight container.

2. Matcha Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

If you’re in search of a nutrient-packed smoothie to fuel your day, this recipe has you covered.

Prepare to be blown away by the sheer deliciousness of this smoothie—it’s truly a taste sensation!

Infused with an enticing hint of bitterness from green tea, it’s a beverage you’ll find yourself reaching for day after day, captivated by its irresistible flavor.

Yet, beyond its delectable taste lies its impressive nutritional profile, making it a standout choice.

This low-carb green matcha smoothie boasts an array of superfoods, delivering a wealth of essential nutrients.

With healthy fats from avocado and coconut milk, along with potassium and magnesium, it’s a powerhouse of goodness.

Plus, it packs a punch with 10 grams of protein, 8 grams of carbs, and a generous serving of fiber, making it a satisfying low-carb option that can enhance metabolism and promote feelings of fullness.

However, it’s worth noting that this smoothie is incredibly filling, thanks to the inclusion of avocado and coconut milk. Consider enjoying it as a meal replacement shake rather than a mere mid-day snack.

Ready to whip up this low-carb smoothie sensation? Here’s everything you need to get started.


  • 1/2 medium avocado

3. Triple Berry Smoothie

I adore this delightful triple-berry low-carb smoothie recipe. Bursting with the irresistible flavors of raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries—all of which are among the lowest in carbohydrates—it’s a true treat for the taste buds.

Berries are not only delicious but also packed with essential nutrients such as fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. By incorporating berries into your low-carb diet, you can potentially ward off numerous chronic illnesses and alleviate symptoms associated with them.

Despite their small size, berries pack a powerful nutritional punch, making them a valuable addition to any diet.

If you’re using fresh berries, consider adding 1/4 cup of ice cubes to the blend for a refreshing chill. Alternatively, you can freeze the berries in advance for a frostier texture.


  •  1/4 cup strawberries 
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup blackberries 
  • 2 cups of coconut milk

Green smoothies stand out not just for their vibrant hue but also for their exceptional health advantages.

This low-carb green smoothie is a prime example.

Leafy greens like parsley, dandelion, and chicory are nutritional powerhouses, brimming with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Incorporating a green smoothie into your low-carb regimen can enhance digestive well-being and support the body’s detoxification processes.

Moreover, the vitamins and minerals derived from these greens can help curb hunger and facilitate detoxification. Following a diet rich in meat and cream typical of a low-carb lifestyle, a superfood reset feels indispensable.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for leaving your comment.

    You can substitute it with white egg protein powder if insulin resistance is an issue.

    It may just be me thinking this but whey protein powder is still a high-protein, low-carb powder that can help build lean muscle mass. Feel free to take it out of the recipe and use other keto-friendly protein powder alternatives like white egg protein powder.

    So glad you tried out the smoothie recipe.
    You can totally opt out on the sweetener if you find the smoothie sweet enough without it.
    Also, was your coconut cream flavored/sweetened?
    Those things can make a difference too.

    Hope you find the right balance of those ingredients for your taste buds!

    Whey protein powder contains whey, the protein found in milk. Vanilla powder, on the other hand, is powdered pure vanilla extract free of alcohol and sugar.

  • Tina Alexandre

    Hi Karen,

    MCT is short for Medium-Chain Triglycerides.

    They are most often found in coconut oil and metabolized in the body differently by going straight to the liver from the gut. They are also said to be easier for digestion and provide quick, clean energy, especially for your brain.

    You see this MCT oil a lot in keto diet recipes!

    Hope this helps.

    I’m not a huge breakfast eater, so this works fine for me.

    This totally depends on your typical meal preference, but if you are a light eater, I would say you’ll find these smoothies pretty filling.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Lee,

    It’s total carbs just to be safe.
    I used MyFitnessPal to come up with the nutrition info, and unfortunately for these, it didn’t give me the net carb count.
    It just stated “carbs”, so I’d assume total carbs.

    Taking out items like chia seeds, protein powders, and hemp seeds may help.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Megs,

    They are always best fresh, and I never made them a day in advance… I would say a few hours is fine but overnight may change the texture a bit.

    I’m sorry I’m not being really useful here… Maybe I just have to try it to see if they hold up for a day.
