Keto Blueberry Smoothie Recipe



Yes, low-carb and keto smoothies do exist! Many berries, including blueberries, are low-carb fruits that may fit into your keto diet plan. This keto blueberry smoothie has only 9.3 grams of net carbs per serving. Learn the secret ingredients to make the creamiest and most DELICIOUS keto smoothie ever! If you are looking for a keto drink that is packed with vitamin C and phytonutrients, you’ve come to the right place.

You didn’t think I’d forget my low-carb and keto friends during Smoothie Madness Week, did you? Lots of no added sugar smoothie recipes use bananas for sweetness and creaminess. However, it’s easy to make a creamy smoothie for low-carb diets.

I’ve used a combination of nut butter and cottage cheese to make this summer drink nice and creamy. I know that seems weird, but please don’t judge until you try it.

Seriously, this might be my very favorite smoothie recipe out of those I am offering this week. (Do me a favor and don’t tell the other smoothies, ok? My family members each have one that they think is best as well.)


Blueberries are actually a little higher in net carbs than some other berry options. To bring the carb count down, I’m using a combination of strawberries and blueberries. No worries, this does not dilute the rich blueberry flavor and color at all.

Unlike many smoothies, this keto blueberry smoothie provides enough protein and fat that a double serving could serve as a small meal. If you have a fat loss goal, I would not typically recommend drinking your calories. However, this particular low-carb smoothie has a lot of staying power from the protein and fiber-rich whole fruits.

I felt soooo satiated by two servings of this smoothie. I can’t normally say that about beverages, keto or not!

This is a level 2 recipe (transition and weight maintenance). This is a high-energy snack, and I’ve found that two servings work well as a light meal. Swap the 6% cottage cheese for low-fat cottage cheese if you are looking for a lower-calorie smoothie.

    The nutrient and diet-friendly stuff is all well and good, Summer, but can I promote my inner five-year-old to imagine it must taste awesome?

    You can’t pick a better ingredient than blueberries, from both a nutritional (superfood!) perspective and, more important, when luxuriating in its taste. Rivaling freshly-picked red raspberries. If you know me, you’d appreciate what a concession that is.

    I like your nut butter idea. Specifically, I’ve started to use almond butter in recipes and have discovered that, in addition to contributing silkiness, it’s ideal as a “neutral” supplement, not being as identifiably assertive a taste as is peanut butter. Sure, PB is great in so much (I’m looking at you, satay sauce), but if that’s not the taste profile you seek…

      I actually hadn’t had almond butter in the house in a while but luckily I thought to pick some up! It’s strangely nice with the blueberries and nutmeg. I was kind of on the fence about throwing them all together but I’d say it was a successful experiment πŸ˜€

      There’s probably a number of different nut butters that would work here, depending on what you had on hand. It’s true that the peanut butter can become a bit overwhelming though it’s still my favorite for certain applications. Satay smoothie, coming up next! (kidding, kidding lol)

    Great keto recipe! Never thought about putting cottage cheese in a smoothie but why not? It’s got protein, calcium and helps maintain blood sugar. That’s a win win!

      The cottage cheese is a good move nutritionally and luckily I really like it! I was worried this recipe was going to weird people out a bit. lol
