If you are like me, you want to enjoy seasonal fruits and vegetables low in carbs. Summer berries are great low-carb options for anyone who doesn't want to give up fruits completely. So, if you are looking for something different than eggs & bacon for breakfast, these keto smoothies are definitely worth trying.

If you can't get fresh berries, use frozen. If you can't get blackcurrants, I included some alternatives to choose from at the end of this post :-)

You can use any berries — strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries — all are low in carbs! Feeling hungry? Add a scoop ( 1/4 cup) of vanilla or plain whey protein or egg white protein powder (Jay Robb) or plant-based such as NuZest. Protein is the most sating nutrient and will keep hunger at bay!

If you don't have blackberries, use raspberries or blackberries. Here is a quick overview of the net carbs in 1/2 cup of berries:

  • strawberries: 4.1 g
  • raspberries: 3.3 g
  • blackberries: 3.1 g
  • blueberries: 8.9 g (wild blueberries have less carbs, ~ 7.3 g)
  • blackcurrants: 4 g

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi, do I need to weigh everything when I am cooking bulk? Also how much oil can I have a day?

If you follow a keto diet and are new to it, you should weigh the ingredients just to be sure. Otherwise you don't need to do that. Here's how much fat you should be eating: KetoDiet Buddy - Easy Macro Calculator for the Ketogenic Diet
If you want to add oil, then about a tablespoon of MCT oil per serving would be ideal (more can cause digestive issues).

Beautiful pics! Are you a professional photographer? I love your style, so vibrant!

Hi Hazel, no I'm not but thank you for your kind words!!

Thanks! I'm going to be making the smoothie with blackberries and strawberries, I've got 2 large bowls in the fridge and wasn't quite sure if I should freeze everything. I may also use it in a berry cheesecake, low carb of course! 😊

Thank you Elen, I'm sure it works great with any berries!
