I know what you're thinking. Aren't no-fat and low-fat foods off limits if you follow a keto diet? Not necessarily. In this recipe we are using Skyr which is a no-fat Icelandic-style yogurt that is just as low in carbs and just as creamy as full-fat yogurt.

This breakfast smoothie recipe is perfect for those who follow a higher protein keto diet and are watching their fat intake.

Recipe Tips

If high-protein keto isn't your thing, you can simply use full-fat yogurt or 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy whipping cream instead of the zero-fat yogurt. Some yogurt brands like Fage are 5% fat while other brands are 10% fat.

If you can't have diary, simply substitute the yogurt with coconut yogurt. Keep in mind that this substitution will make the smoothie higher in carbs and calories.

If you want to make this smoothie vegetarian or vegan, substitute the collagen with whey protein isolate or egg white protein isolate or use sugar-free, plant-based option such as pea protein powder.

Each and every one of us has different dietary needs so it's only natural that you may need to adjust the macros in this keto recipe. You can make all these adjustments and more directly in the KetoDiet App by cloning any of the recipes from my blog and customizing them to fit your macros and preferences.

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.

Mine was a bit bitty, did I just not blend it for long enough or is this how it’s meant to be? Taste was lovely though!

Hi Kirstie, it sounds like it. Was it the collagen or ice? More blending would result in smoother texture.

Excellent option, best tasting protein shake I've had in a LONG time, and just what I need in the morning since I have rather difficult time fitting in a regular meal so early.  Thank you!!

Thank you so much Wendy, that's great to know!
