I'm a big fan of keto smoothies because they are the perfect go-to meal when I don't have time to cook.

To make this smoothie you will only need a few common ingredients: coconut milk, water, protein powder (or collagen), cinnamon and chia seeds(or flax meal).

If you can do dairy, you can can even use heavy whipping cream combined with water or almond milk (about 1/2 cup cream plus about 3/4 cup almond milk or water).

Even if you can't eat dairy or eggs, you can make it with NuZest protein powders - a clean, plant-based protein powder I recently discovered and love!

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.

Any alternatives to whey? We don’t exactly “get along”!!! lol
I’m excited to try this recipe! It sounds delicious!!
Thank you!!

Absolutely! You can use some egg white protein powder, collagen or pea protein powder.  PS: I'm sorry for the delayed reply, it seems that your comment got trapped in a filter!

Can I use a nut milk instead? Maybe cashew, walnut, or almond?

Yes you can do that. Cashew milk sounds nice! The fat content per serving will be lower but it will be just as tasty.

Does this recipe do well when it’s made ahead and frozen? Or can it be refrigerated for a day or two? It sounds delicious!

Thank you Taylor! I haven't tried freezing it but I think it's better to avoid that. If you're short on time, prepare the dried mix and keep in small jars ready to be mixed into a smoothie. I hope this helps!

Can I use something besides chia seeds? How about flax seeds instead?

Yes, ground flax seeds (flax meal) is a great alternative!

Hi. What I'm asking for is a huge favor so I completely understand if you don't have time for this. I am trying to get my husband off of the Instant Carnation Breakfast powder that he has been drinking before work for the last 30 years. Since your recipes are so delicious, I was hoping that you might be able to give me a ratio of cocoa powder to dry milk to collagen to Swerve as a substitute and yes I realize that I'm asking for a recipe. I know you don't have a lot of time so I was hoping you'd be able to just give a a suggestion or start and I can take it from there.

Apologies for the delayed response! I'm not familiar with this breakfast powder but I'd go with the following amounts per serving (that would be to my taste and you may need to adjust it to his taste):
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon powdered Erythritol
1/4 cup collagen
Mix with 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk + 1/4 to 1/2 cup coconut milk (or heavy whipping cream)
You may also want to try the chocolate collagen powder I used in this recipe: Keto Chocolate & Almond Frostino
I hope this helps!

This looks good,  but when do you add the water?

Hi Melanie, it's a smoothie so you can add all the ingredients in one step  - blend - done 😊

Hi, I'm so happy that I have found your website. I am going to make this shake for breakfast. I appreciate your site. Thank you.

Thank you Stephanie, I hope ypu like it! 😊

Hi, didn't see the calories listed for the Cinnamon Smoothie. Has it been calculated?

Hi Sam, the calorie value is listed as "energy" and "kcal".

This is very similar to a cinnamon chia seed pudding I posted yesterday. I'm out of protein powder at the moment though, I'll have to pick some up so I can make this and report back. My husband said he liked the taste of the pudding, but didn't like the tapioca-like texture. Your recipe seems like the perfect solution!

I hope you both like it! 😊 I actually like the grainy, tapioca-like texture but I know some people use ground chia seeds to make pudding. I tried both and to my surprise I preferred it with whole seeds. Ground chia made it taste slightly bitter.

I never tried a smoothie with cinnamon. It must add strong aroma to it 😊

It's creamy and delicious! 😊
