Packed with superfoods, this keto smoothie is a healthy breakfast option for your ketogenic eating. It's low in carbs, high in healthy fats, magnesium and potassium, making it the ideal meal to fight keto flu.

I used green tea powder aka matcha which apart from having many health benefits goes great with coconut milk and vanilla. Avocado adds creaminess and heart-healthy fats and MCT oil will boost your energy. If you need to add some protein, use quality protein powder or collagen.

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.

Can I add liquid egg white  as a protein option to this shake

Absolutely! I actually love using whole raw eggs in smoothies - more recipes here:

I’m vegan, my partner is keto (like you, he was dx’d with Hashimoto’s). We have a difficult time meal planning. With the many many MANY highly rated recipes here, and vegan options, I think we have found our solution. Now, how to get his extraordinarily picky, carb-addicted, inflammatory-riddled teenage dtr to join us...

I hope you find recipes you like! Let me know if there's anything in particular you're looking for in case you don't find it here and I'll do my best to add it to the list 😊

Saw this in a smoothie recipe roundup. Great detailed recipe with an unusual ingredient mix to make it Keto friendly. Just pinned it in my Keto smoothie recipes so I can try it later.


AMAZING!! I loathe the thought of “green” smoothies/shakes but have started keto and made this. I used a spinach/kale mix and doubled the greens and still tasted amazing - love the coconut taste. Better than bought - anywhere. Thank you for the recipe

Thank you so much, I'm happy you enjoyed!

I just made this and it is so good!

Thank you!

How do I print this recipe? It looks Great! Thanks

Hi Louise, there is a "print" option at the top of this post. I hope this helps!

Im Loving all your recipes!!!

I  was craving a smoothie after my workout so I came home and made this. WOWZA!! This is so perfect!  Its amazingly creamy and really hits the spot on a hot day! Thanks for the recipe. PS - I used heavy whipping cream and matcha powder in mine 😊

Thank you for your lovely feedback!

LOVE this recipe! I am a baker and new to keto. Almost 3 wks in and have totally cut sugar - which is very hard for me - but I did it. I have been craving sweetness but don't want to compromise my progress. Made this smoothie this morning and MAN was it a treat for me! I love, love, love it! I will be making this green smoothie until I get sick of it, which will probably be never.  Thanks SO much for the recipe!

Thank you for your kind words, Yvette!   And well done on eliminating sugar - I know how hard it is when you change the way you eat!

I'm thinking of starting on a Keto diet. I make a smoothie with Avocado, spinach,water, mint and cucumber. I was wondering if this would still be okay for my breakfast or would the recipe you've posted be better for this change in diet. Thanks in advance!

It sounds good to me, all of these ingredients are in the Complete Keto Diet Food List: What to Eat and Avoid on a Low-Carb Diet 😊

This is absolutely delicious! Thank you!

The only thing I can ask is: how? How does this taste SO good! I used the whipping cream method and didn't even add optional ingredients, and with just a couple drops of Stevia and vanilla flavored MCT oil, it is SO GOOD. I just can't believe it. It tastes like a milkshake. I can't even taste the avocado or spinach, which is surprising because in most recipes I always taste it even when it has chocolate in it.

Thank you for your lovely feedback!

Love this smoothie! Thank you so much! Just curious, does the nutrition values above include the optional protein powder? Thanks again; I love your site, recipes and app. Such a great resource and tool for me on my keto journey 💗

Thank you for your kind words, Rachel! The nutrition facts do not include the protein powder or any "optional" ingredients. I hope this helps!

Yum! I just made this and added a bit of fresh turmeric, fresh ginger and fresh lemon juice - for an anti-inflammatory boost. All that adds a solid kick of flavor, which is pushing me through my work afternoon. 😊

Turmeric? Yes please! 😊

I just came out of surgery 1 week ago and my husband has been making this smoothie for me every morning.  Soo good. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I'm so happy you like it!

Can I replace the artificial sweetener with frozen berries?

Hi Aileen, there are no artificial sweeteners used in this recipe but you can replace any sweeteners with berries. More info: Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet

Totally amazing drink. Wow. Great for my mid afternoon snack.

I'm trying to get this into my meal planner on the keto diet app and the option isn't there. Any way to get around this? Thanks!

Hi Jenna, apologies for the delayed response. I checked this recipe and it should be both in the Planner tab (when adding meals, you can add any blog meals), in the Custom Meals tab (if you search for "smoothie"), and you can also add it from the KetoDiet Blog tab (top right icon with a plus sign on it). I hope this helps!

I almost really like this smoothie, but mine turned out a bit bitter. I added the tsp of matcha powder so that probably did it and I also used MCT oil instead of coconut oil. Is there anything else you would suggest doing?

Hi Erin, some products can be bitter and you can add just 1/2 teaspoon of matcha - or use another ingredient, such as turmeric or maca powder, or spirulina (1/4-1/2 teaspoon). I hope this helps!

Hello. I was wondering,  I followed the recipe but added 1 tbs of chia seeds. Is that ok for this recipe under the ketogenic umbrella ?

Absolutely! Chia seeds are low in net carbs and most of the fibre is insoluble (insoluble fibre has no effect on blood sugar and contains no calories).

I want a quick recipe for a green smoothie. This one looked easy comma but I didn't have exactly all the ingredients. I used it for the measurements. I used spinach, avocado, vanilla protein powder comma almond milk comma and Stevia drops. I also added about a half cup of water and some ice cubes. Very tasty!

Why do you not include calories in nutrition info. this smoothie is 755 Calories for the whole thing!

We do list calories in the nutrition table > Energy (calories) = 468 kcal. I suppose you used an app with crowdsourced data  - that would explain the huge difference. We use a verified database and the nutrition facts listed are accurate.

The Keto novice in me makes me want to put a mango or a banana in this drink so bad, instead of boring sweetner.  Look at this beauty! DX Could you add a banana if you were doing a fast day?

I'd avoid banana on a keto diet - there are some exceptions where you could use it post-workout: Ketogenic Nutrition and Exercise: Carbs

A cup of mango has 23g of sugar. A medium banana has 14g of sugar.
Not very keto friendly, especially that mango.
Stick with veg if you're doing keto.

This was AMAZING!!!!  I rarely write reviews but I HAD TO THANK YOU!!!!  
I made it as written first and tasted it and I felt like it needed a little more vanilla flavor.  I had some Jay Robb Vanilla protein powder (which is suggested as an optional add-in).  I added half a scoop.  Wow!!!  It was so creamy and delicious.  I will be making this one again and again.  Thank you so much!

Thank you so much Tara!
