A Creamy Fruit Smoothie, Perfect for Low Carb Breakfasts!
Keto smoothies are the perfect treat any time of the day. Start your day off with satiating fiber and protein, grab one as a post-workout snack, or enjoy one with a spoon for dessert.
One of the best ways to keep the carbs down in smoothies is by adding vegetables! Instead of using all berries, this has frozen zucchini – the perfect way to add veggies but keep the smoothie pink!
Use this simple recipe as a template to build your own perfect smoothie. Add a variety of berries, use spinach or kale to boost the green-power, or use coconut milk or heavy whipping cream to add more satiating fats. See directions for variations below!
What You’ll Need
- Frozen Strawberries
- Frozen Zucchini
- Almond Milk (unsweetened, or coconut milk or heavy whipping cream, based on needs)

How to Make a Keto Strawberry Smoothie
Step 1: Add all ingredients to a blender. For the thickest smoothie, be sure your zucchini and strawberries are very frozen (overnight).
Step 2: Process until very smooth. Adjust flavor with additional sweetener. Adjust thickness by adding more almond milk if desired.
FAQ and Variations
What are the net carbs in this smoothie? A large amount of fruit is what makes smoothies inappropriate for a keto or very low carb diet. Using vegetables in place of the fruit, and using healthy fats and proteins, smoothies can be a great choice. This smoothie has 9 net carbs.
Lower the carbs: Omit the yogurt and add a little more almond milk. Be sure to use a protein powder without carbs.
Mix up the Berries: Use a mixture of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries for a mixed berry smoothie.
Switch up the Veggies: Frozen zucchini is a great option in smoothies because it’s undetectable! You can also use 1 cup spinach or kale (which will give this a green hue), or add more healthy fats by using 1/4 or 1/2 frozen avocado.
Garnish it: Make this a fun treat by garnishing this smoothie with whipped cream (make it homemade without sugar), fresh chopped strawberries, or nuts/seeds, like walnuts and chia seeds. I make my smoothies extra thick and then add some garnishes for texture and eat it like ice cream!
