It’s day four of Smoothie Madness Week, and I’ve got a vegan keto berry smoothie recipe that 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?
I’m back with another keto smoothie for Smoothie Madness Week! 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.
My family had no idea there was avocado in this until I told them. (Yes, they help to test all of my recipes! That’s why the photos here show three drinks for a two-serving recipe.)
Avocado and coconut milk are great options if you want to make a creamy non-dairy smoothie without bananas or dates. Frozen avocado blends smoothly in a regular food processor. I didn’t need a high-speed blender to get a smooth smoothie.
Vegan and keto diets tend to be thought of as opposite ends of the dietary spectrum. However, this happens to be a vegan keto smoothie. It has no animal-based foods and is low in net carbs (8.9 grams per serving).
I made a smoothie-making video so you can watch me create this magical dietary harmony. You can check it out with the recipe below.
One more thing! Did you know that you can buy peeled and chopped frozen avocado? They’re in the freezer aisle of many major grocery stores in the U.S.
Hey, anything that gets me my homemade keto smoothie faster is a win in my book. Now let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

“Keto” recipes on the web may not be appropriate for those using ketogenic diets as part of their medical nutrition therapy. That includes this recipe.

Keto Berry Smoothie Recipe (Vegan, No Added Sugar)
- ¾ cup frozen avocado, chopped
- 13½ ounces light coconut milk (400 mL; from a can)
- 1 cup chopped frozen strawberries
- ¼ cup frozen blueberries
- ¼ cup frozen raspberries
- 2 pinches stevia extract
- Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender or food processor.
- Blend until completely smooth. That's all you have to do!
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 fat 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. Nutrition information is for one serving of the recipe.
If you’re here for keto-friendly recipes, my Cincinnati chili recipe is not to be missed! It’s one of my favorite low-carb dinner ideas, as I’ve swapped out the pasta for spaghetti squash. (Those on very low-carb diets can make the chili 3-way rather than 5-way.)
On the other hand, if vegan desserts are more your thing, check out my vegan pumpkin ice cream. It’s delicious, and (like this keto berry smoothie) has no added sugar. My watermelon lime mint pops are another cooling plant-based snack that we’ve been enjoying a lot lately.
