“I love this one because it is a little sweeter than most keto smoothies I’ve tried. Almost like a dessert, but healthier.”

🙂 Chris C

Keto Berry, a fat-burning Keto Smoothie Recipe, is a fruity and satisfying beverage that combines the natural sweetness of berries with the creaminess of almond butter. This delicious smoothie is perfect for a quick breakfast or a refreshing afternoon treat.

Berries are rich in antioxidants and fiber, which can help protect against oxidative stress and promote digestive health. The almond butter and protein powder provide healthy fats and protein, which can help with muscle recovery and promote ketosis.

Key Ingredients

The Keto Berry smoothie ingredients are:


Health Benefits

Mixed Berries

Almond Milk
Almond Milk

Almond MilkAlmond milk is a popular nut-based milk replacement that is naturally lactose-free, dairy-free, and completely vegan. It has a surprisingly diverse set of nutrients, including significant amounts of vitamin D, vitamin E, and calcium. Almond milk is also a heart-healthy beverage for those interested in lowering their cholesterol.

Almond Butter
Almond Butter

Almond ButterAlmond butter is made from roasted, ground almonds and is often used as a substitute for peanut butter. It is high in monounsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E. Almond butter can help lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease, and improve the health of artery walls.

Stevia
Stevia

SteviaStevia is a sugar substitute made from the leaves of the stevia plant. It is about 200 times sweeter than traditional refined table sugar, but contains no carbohydrates, calories, or artificial ingredients. However, many users find the aftertaste bitter and displeasing.

Whey Protein Powder
Whey Protein Powder

Whey Protein PowderWhey protein powder is the most highly studied nutritional supplement readily available, providing great nutritional value and numerous health benefits. In addition to high quality protein, it also contains bioactive peptides called lactokinins. Whey protein powder promotes muscle growth and maintenance, helps lower blood pressure, can lessen the effects of Type 2 diabetes, and reduces inflammation.


Equipment Needed

Smoothie Making Tools
Smoothie Making Tools

A standard blender is all that is required to make this keto smoothie. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using any one of the many available NutriBullet blenders as they are quick to set up and very easy to clean. 

If you are making this recipe for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Vitamix blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


How To Make This Smoothie

The Keto Berry smoothie is very easy to make:

  • Step 1: Place mixed berries, almond milk, almond butter, Stevia, whey protein powder, and ice into a blender and secure the lid.
  • Step 2: Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
  • Step 3: Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  • Step 4: Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Recipe Tips And Substitutions

If you don’t have frozen berries, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.

Soy milk or coconut milk can be substituted for the almond milk and still keep this delicious smoothie keto-friendly.

Hemp protein powder and a few drops of vanilla extract can be substituted for the vanilla whey protein powder.

Add a handful of spinach for extra nutrients.
