Keto berry smoothie recipe
Also, this mixed berry smoothie is naturally sweet thanks to the berries, with a dose of freshness and creaminess from the Greek yogurt. And like my refreshing keto lemonade, this is a great drink to enjoy on hot days.
Although this is a very simple smoothie, you cannot go wrong with this recipe. It has all you need – vitamins and minerals from the berries, protein from almond milk and Greek yogurt, and fibers from the fruits.
You can also use this smoothie after a workout as it will help you fuel up without giving you that heavy feeling in the stomach. And, if you choose to make this after a workout, you can substitute the almond milk with coconut water to get those electrolytes in.
Tips and tricks
- Always use fresh berries. Spoilt berries will only give the smoothie a bad taste.
- The smoothie tastes like the cheesecake, but you can add in some seeds, like chia or slivered almonds. These seeds can help give the smoothie a very nice thickened texture.
- You can also add some ice to this recipe. Doing so will add some bulk so it takes longer to drink and fills you up more. It will also help to add more texture and keep the smoothie colder for longer.

How many carbs are in a berry smoothie?
Typically, a berry smoothie has more than 50 grams of carbs per serving. This is due to the ingredients used in typical berry smoothies which may include added sugars, fruit juices and other fruits like bananas. The smoothie king berry smoothie for example contains 67 grams of carbs in one 32 oz serving.
On the other hand, there are only 6.9 grams of net carbs in this easy keto mixed berry smoothie. This smoothie, gets most of its carbs from the cranberries and strawberries which contain some natural sugars and thus has a little more carbs than one would normally expect for keto foods. Nonetheless, it can easily fit into your low carb or keto lifestyle.
