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.

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!

Reply

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!

Reply

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!

Reply

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

Reply

This is absolutely delicious! Thank you!

Reply

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 💗

Reply

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

Reply

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. 😊

Reply

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?

Reply

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

Reply

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

Reply

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!

Reply

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!

Reply

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?

Reply

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!

Reply

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 ?

Reply

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!

Reply

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

Reply

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?

Reply

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

Reply

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.

Reply

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!

Reply

Thank you so much Tara!

I love this smoothie! I'm wondering about the calorie count, though -- I consistently come up with 662, not 468. Here's my information, maybe you can see what I'm missing? Thanks so much!
2.6 ounce Avocado
calories 118 Total Fat 11 Total Carbs 7 Protein 1
½ cup fresh spinach (15 g/ 0.5 oz) -
calories 3 Total Fat 0 Total Carbs 1 Protein 0
½ cup heavy whipping cream (120 ml / 4 fl oz)-
calories 400 Total Fat 40 Total Carbs 0 Protein 2
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract Mccormick's -

I think I can see why it's different now. I used coconut milk for calculating the nutrition facts (listed first in the ingredient list). Aroy-D contains just half the amount of fat compared to cream. The best way to substitute would be to use just 1/4 cup cream and add water if needed. I'll add a note. I hope this helps 😊

Reply

Thank you so very much!

Reply

Great recipe! Can't wait to try it.
The only issue is that I'd count the full carb count. Blenders tend to negate any fiber benefits since it breaks it up so much.

Reply

Thank you Finn! I don't think you need to worry about losing the benefits of fibre if you blend your food. You still get the same amount of fibre that affects the body in the same way (soluble + insoluble fibre).

Reply

For the collagen powder, do you add 1/4 of a cup.  Also you say optional for the collagen and Maca Green Tee, can you use both ?

Reply

Hi Lana, yes, you can use both if you like. I would use just 1-2 tablespoons of gelatin instead of 1/4 cup protein powder.

Reply

Hi There! This smoothie has been great, but I'm a little concerned that one of the measurements may be off. My Now Foods Erythritol says to use 2 teaspoons as a serving, but this recipe says to use 2 tablespoons. When I track 2 tablespoons of erythritol in my counter I'm told that it amounts to 24 net carbs which would essentially take my carbs for the entire day. Which measurement is correct?

Reply

Hi Bethanye, sweeteners are always a matter of personal preference so you could use less (or you could use stevia). I'm afraid your tracker doesn't have accurate nutrition facts - Erythritol is almost zero-calorie and zero-carb with no effect on blood sugar. Here's more about sweeteners: Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-carb Ketogenic Diet

Reply

I love this smoothie as it is my breakfast everyday. I wish I had paid more attention to the label on the heavy whipping cream since it is 1g of carbs per tbs. I feel like I have messing up royally. Is there a low carb heavy whipping cream that I don't know about?

Reply

Thank you Crystal! Does this cream have any additives in it? That's not what a regular cream looks like because that's almost zero-carb per a tablespoon.

Reply

I love experimenting with new recipes and my family haven't complained once! Thank you for you commitment in helping the Low carb community. I am wondering if using a green tea bag would have the same effect as green tea powder and, if so, how many tea bags would you recommend? I'm looking forward to trying this in the warmer weather 🙂

Reply

Thank you Jacqui! Yes, I think you can use chilled green tea too. I'd use a teabag per serving and use just about 1/2 cup boiling water, let it infuse for 3 minutes and then take the teabag out and let it chill. Hope you like it 😊
