This vegan keto berry smoothie recipe is going to rock your world! We’ve got triple berry goodness from strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries in this plant-based and low-carb smoothie. The real surprises in this one, however, are the ingredients I’m using to make this summertime drink creamy. Can you guess what they are? Don’t miss this delicious vegan keto smoothie recipe!
Need some new keto smoothie ideas? In my keto blueberry smoothie recipe, I used cottage cheese and almond butter for a creamy, dreamy smoothie. This keto berry smoothie uses two other keto-friendly ingredients: blended avocado and light coconut milk.
Vegan and keto diets tend to be thought of as opposite ends of the dietary spectrum. However, this happens to be one option for vegan keto smoothies. It has no animal-based foods and is low in net carbs (11.6 grams per serving).
Making a keto friendly smoothie can be tricky. First of all, we need to make a keto berry smoothie without milk, since dairy milk is high in natural sugars. Second, a keto fruit smoothie needs to include only low carb fruits, which are mostly the berries.
Third, keto berry smoothies need a source of sweetness, but not from natural sugars. This keto mixed berry smoothie recipe uses stevia extract, but you can also use another sugar free sweetener such as monk fruit or erythritol. (Note: if you use a 1:1 sugar free sweetener, you will need to add a lot more.)

🍓 Keto Berry Smoothie Recipe Benefits
Why try dairy free keto smoothie recipes? Here are some advantages of this vegan low carb smoothie recipe:
- Healthy fats: One of the disadvantages of the keto diet is it can be quite high in saturated fat. Here, we’re using light coconut milk plus ripe avocado to lower saturated fat and increase healthy fat.
- Whole foods: This keto berry smoothie is high fiber because it uses whole fruits instead of fruit juice. Aside from keeping the food matrix of our berries intact, we’re also keeping the net carbs down.
- Easy: You only need six ingredients and 5 minutes to make this quick and simple berry smoothie. All of the ingredients are typically available in well-stocked US grocery stores. It's perfect for a quick breakfast or snack.
- Cheap: If you’ve been buying the Smoothie King Keto Champ Berry Smoothie, this homemade keto berry smoothie may save money. Though the upfront cost of buying frozen berries may be higher, you can yield many more smoothies.
- Low Sugar: Since this is a low carb berry smoothie, it is low in sugar from both natural and added sources.
- Gluten free berry smoothie: This berry smoothie is gluten free, low carb, keto, plant based, vegetarian and vegan. Vegetarian low carb smoothie recipes can feed practically anyone!
- Delicious: Aside from being healthy and rich in vitamin C and potassium, this smoothie is very tasty. Even picky eaters tend to enjoy the delish flavor of juicy berries.
⭐ Berry Smoothie Keto Ingredients
Here’s what you need to make the best vegan keto breakfast smoothie:
- Frozen strawberries
- Ripe frozen avocado (chopped)
- Frozen blueberries
- Frozen raspberries
- Light coconut milk (from a can)
- Stevia extract (powder or liquid)
(Get specific quantities of ingredients in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.)
You are welcome to use a frozen mixed berry blend instead of buying separate types of berries. However, make sure the frozen mixed berries you buy are unsweetened and fit your macros for keto.
My family had no idea there was avocado in this until I told them. Avocado and coconut milk are great options if you want to make a creamy non-dairy smoothie without bananas or dates.
Use peeled and chopped frozen avocado to make your homemade keto smoothie faster. They’re in the freezer aisle of many major grocery stores in the U.S. If you use fresh avocado, make sure it is very soft and ripe before freezing for easier blending.
Frozen avocado blends smoothly in a regular food processor. I didn’t need a high-speed blender to get a smooth smoothie.
Speaking of blending, I recommend using either a food processor or high-speed blender (Thermomix, Nutribullet, Vitamix, etc.) for smoothies. I find that regular blenders don’t do a great job making frozen fruits in smoothies smooth.
🫐 How to Make Keto Berry Smoothie
Here are the steps for making keto berry smoothies:
- Place the strawberries, avocado, blueberries, raspberries, coconut milk, and stevia into a food processor and blend until completely smooth.
- Taste the smoothie and add a little more stevia if desired.
- Pour the smoothie into tall glasses or wide-mouth mason jars. Garnish with fresh berries and cacao nibs (if you wish). Serve immediately with wide-width straws for easier drinking.
🌡 Keto Berry Smoothie Storage
This keto berry smoothie cannot be refrigerated, as it will separate and melt. Instead, pour leftovers into popsicle molds, and freeze overnight. Now you can enjoy your keto berry smoothie leftovers as popsicles whenever you wish!
🤔 Keto Berry Smoothie Variations
This is a keto berry smoothie with coconut milk. You can make this a keto berry smoothie with heavy cream or unsweetened almond milk if you’d prefer. Keep in mind that these changes will impact the nutrition information for the recipe.
Oat milk is not keto-friendly, but could also be used in this recipe. To make a keto berry protein smoothie, use unsweetened soy milk or add protein powder to the coconut milk. Plain Greek yogurt is another way to add protein to smoothies, but you may need more liquid to thin.
Here are some other keto smoothie toppings and keto smoothie add-ins. Use your good judgement regarding what might work with your other ingredients:
- Cocoa powder
- Peanut butter
- MCT oil
- Vanilla extract
- Chia seeds, flax seeds, or hemp seeds
- Unsweetened coconut cream
- Keto whipped cream
- Coconut flakes or coconut chips (unsweetened)
- Keto chocolate chips

💭 Expert Tips from a Dietitian
This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). At over 200 calories per serving, this is a high-calorie snack with a limited amount of filling protein. This recipe may be an excellent option for the person who has trouble eating enough during the day. If you want to make this smoothie even higher in energy, you could substitute the light coconut milk for full-fat.
I don’t typically advise drinking your calories (other than milk) if you have a weight loss goal. However, all of my smoothie recipes use whole blended fruit rather than juice. An argument could be made that they can be viewed as a whole food similar to gazpacho.
If you find it too easy to consume excess calories when you drink smoothies, try freezing your smoothie recipe in popsicle molds. Making ice pops breaks the smoothie into smaller portions that must (generally) be eaten more slowly and mindfully.
As an aside, I don’t recommend combining the vegan diet and keto diet in most cases. The issue is that the combination of the two diets leads to severe food restrictions, which can result in nutrient deficiencies.
Yes, it is possible to get all of the essential nutrients you need on a vegan keto diet. However, some supplementation is required, and most people are not stringent enough with their diets to ensure they’re consistently getting everything they need. For these reasons, I don’t recommend combining vegan and keto without approval, supervision, and advice from a physician or dietitian. Stay safe!
Some berry smoothies are keto and some are not. It depends on the ingredients in the smoothie. Many smoothies are made with added sugars like honey, maple syrup, agave, and white sugar that aren’t low carb friendly. This smoothie recipe uses a sugar free sweetener to keep the carbs low.
To make a vegan keto smoothie bowl, blend the frozen fruits without the coconut milk. Add coconut milk in little by little until the smoothie bowl is the consistency you prefer.
I do not recommend substituting the liquid in this keto smoothie recipe for water. The coconut milk provides creaminess and flavor that you won’t get if you use water.
Most frozen berries are keto friendly if unsweetened and consumed in reasonable portions. Per half cup, raspberries provide 3.3 grams net carbs, strawberries provide 4.2 grams net carbs, and blueberries provide 8.9 grams net carbs. Cherries (which aren't technically a berry) provide 9.1 grams net carbs per half cup.
The Keto Champ Berry Smoothie at Smoothie King contains wild blueberries, raspberries, keto protein blend, almond butter, cocoa, and Califia Farms almond milk. (Recipes are subject to change, so check the Smoothie King website for the most current information on their smoothies.)
To make a keto blackberry smoothie, substitute the raspberries in this recipe for frozen blackberries. I do not recommend trying to replace all the berries in this recipe with blackberries. Blackberries are very seedy, and will make a smoothie that is too seedy (unless the berries are strained before use).

Raspberries, Summer? Yes, please!
You may recall my comment yesterday, about blueberries being the only thing that rivaled raspberries? Well, what happens if they're both in the same smoothie! Ka-pow!
Also, I second your suggestion of using avocados, as I've found them to be a great (and healthy) way to make something as smooth as silk. Worked wonders in fudge I made, along with almond butter, which you used yesterday.
Another perfection, Summer!
Summer Yule says
Ooooooh... fudge with avocado?!? I'd love to know whether that one is on your website! I'll have to go look for it!
The avocado was a really nice addition to this one. It will be making a reappearance in smoothie recipes in the future here, that much is certain!
