Last Updated on May 20, 2021 by Toya

Are strawberries good for keto?

Strawberries are one of the few delicious and filling fruits that you can eat while doing keto.  According to food central data, there are 7.83 grams of total carbs and 1.8 grams of fiber in every 100 grams of strawberries. This means that there are 5.83 grams of net carbs in every 100 grams of strawberries and so they’re a good fruit to have on keto.
 
Note, since most people doing keto have a carb limit of 20-50 grams per day, you should limit how many strawberries you eat in a day!

Tips for the best strawberry coconut milk keto smoothie

  • To make this smoothie as creamy and rich as possible, also consider adding in some sugar-free condensed coconut milk to the recipe. Just 2 tablespoons will do the trick.
  • To make a vegan and dairy free strawberry smoothie that is low in carbs, you can remove the whey protein powder and replace this ingredient with some sugar free condensed coconut milk as well.
  • For the perfect consistency in your smoothie, make sure to add in your softer, high moisture ingredients such as your milk, strawberries and coconut cream first. Followed by your harder ingredients like ice. This is also a great move if your blender is not very powerful. 
  • If you have strawberry extract on hand, you can also add some of this to your smoothie to give even more flavor without the extra strawberries. This will ensure that your strawberry smoothie has all the delicious flavors of a ton of strawberries without any extra carbs. 

Strawberry keto smoothie flavor variations

This creamy smoothie is great just the way it is. However, if you want to create some other flavor ideas, you can also do so. Here are some flavor suggestions you can make from the strawberry smoothie base:

  • Keto strawberry almond milk smoothie: Just replace the coconut milk with 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk and the coconut cream with 1/3 cup of heavy cream or 1/2 cup of greek yogurt. 
  • Keto strawberry banana smoothie: Keep all the ingredients the same and add 1-2 tsp of banana extract
  • Keto strawberry cream cheese smoothie: Replace the milk with 2 tbsp cream cheese and 3 tbsp of heavy cream
  • Keto chocolate strawberry smoothie: Simply add in 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder for a delicious chocolate strawberry smoothie.
  • Keto strawberry avocado smoothie: Add half an avocado to the rest of the ingredients for this flavor combination.

Storing and freezing a strawberry smoothie

  • To store: A smoothie is best served fresh. However, you can also store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. However, this smoothie is likely to separate the longer it sits in the fridge. When you’re ready to have it, make sure to stir to combine the ingredients.
  • To Freeze: Fresh strawberry smoothies are the best. However, if you want to freeze this smoothie, you can simply portion into zip lock bags or ice cube trays and freeze for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to serve, simply remove from the freezer, blend and serve.
