Healthy Keto Green Smoothie

Healthy Keto Green SmoothiePin recipeFollow us 47.2k

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 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!

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!

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

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!

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

½ cup fresh spinach (15 g/ 0.5 oz) -
calories 3 Total Fat 0 Total Carbs 1 Protein 0

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 Smile

Thank you so very much!

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.

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 Smile

I'm going to try this right now in my new Nutribullet.

Reply

Hope you like it! Smile

I tried it and it is my favourite smoothie recipe so far. I bought a nutribullet two weeks ago, and your recipe is the nicest I've tried. It is so creamy, and fills me up for ages. My 9 year old daughter (and avid spinach avoider) tried it and loved it! I've had it every day this week. Slightly obsessed.

Thank you Lynne! I'm glad you both liked it! Smile It is very filling!
