How to make a keto blueberry smoothie?

It’s very easy to make your own blueberry keto smoothie at home. All you need are few ingredients, a high-speed blender to blend all the ingredients into a creamy, healthy blueberry smoothie.

Keto Blueberry Smoothie

Ingredients

All you need to make this blueberry smoothie keto recipe are:

  • Unsweetened almond milk, you can also use packaged unsweetened coconut milk for a lovely keto blueberry coconut smoothie.
  • Frozen blueberries – blueberries are keto-friendly fruit that you can safely add to your keto diet. They still contain more carbs than raspberries or strawberries and should be used sparingly to limit carbs intake.
  • Ice cubes – because this recipe doesn’t use high-carb frozen fruits to deliver a creamy texture, ice cubes are needed to achieve a frothy almond milk blueberry smoothie keto recipe.
  • MCT oil – this is a great addition to any keto smoothie. It adds the fat you need to feel full and helps reach your fat macro. Therefore, you burn fat faster. Of course, you can make the recipe without MCT oil, but I highly recommend it as a fat-burning booster.
  • Plain yogurt – you can use any plain yogurt you love, including Greek yogurt or dairy-free coconut yogurt. Always have a look at the ingredients list when buying yogurt. You shouldn’t see any hidden sugar names on the list. For example, coconut yogurt, a great keto vegan option for smoothies, should be made of 2 ingredients: pure coconut cream and probiotics. Therefore it contains mostly fat and no added carbs.
  • Erythritol – or stevia drops. Many flavored stevia drops go so well in smoothies, like vanilla stevia drops or lemon stevia drops.
  • Vanilla extract

Blend all ingredients

Next, bring all the ingredients into a high-speed blender jug and blend until smooth and frothy.

Adjust recipe

We all have different tastes when it comes to smoothies. Some people love them very sweet, frothy, thick, creamy. So have a taste before serving.

How to make keto smoothie sweeter?

For a sweeter keto blueberry smoothie, add more:

  • Erythritol – add 1 teaspoon at a time.
  • Few drops of stevia – starting with one drop.

For a thicker blueberry smoothie, add extra:

  • Ice cubes – this is the best way to make your keto blueberry smoothie frothier without adding carbs. However, too many ice cubes make it icy, so don’t add too much ice!
  • More yogurt – this adds creaminess and texture.
  • Almond butter – add 1 tablespoon of almond butter to make the smoothie creamier.
  • More frozen fruits – perfect option to make the smoothie sweeter, but don’t go overboard as it will increase your net carbs quickly.

Is this keto blueberry smoothie healthy?

This keto blueberry smoothie recipe is definitely a healthy smoothie for everyone, not only people on a keto diet.

It contains all the healthy ingredients a healthy smoothie should have:

  • Calcium – it’s a blueberry yogurt smoothie recipe, so it adds calcium from plain yogurt and almond milk if you used a fortified brand!
  • Low-sugar – only sugar from berries.
  • Healthy fats – healthy medium-chain triglycerides fat from MCT oil.
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan option – if you use dairy-free yogurt like soy yogurt or coconut yogurt.

Can I swap MCT oil with coconut oil?

Yes, you can but watch out because coconut oil firm up when it gets in contact with cold liquids.

You may see some coconut oil lumps gradually forming in the drink if you don’t drink it too fast.

Otherwise, make the keto blueberry smoothie without MCT oil. It comes out great and tasty!

Can I add protein powder?

Yes, adding 2-3 tablespoons of protein powder to your blueberry almond milk smoothie is a great option to not only boost your proteins but add a creamy texture.

  • In a blender, add all the ingredients except the ice cubes.

  • Blend at high speed until smooth. If you want a frothier blueberry smoothie, add more ice cubes, blend at high speed to combine, and serve immediately. For a sweeter smoothie, add more erythritol 1 teaspoon at a time, blend between each addition.

  • I don’t recommend making this smoothie ahead of time, or it will form layers in the fridge. You will also lose the texture from the frozen berries and ice cubes.

For a thicker smoothie, you can add some of the ingredients below. The nutrition panel doesn’t include these optional suggestions:

  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons keto protein powder
