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!

Keto Blueberry Smoothie Recipe
- If your frozen strawberries are large, chop them up a little smaller.
- Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth. If some ingredients are sticking to the sides, stop the processor and scrape the sides down with a spatula. Then continue to blend. We don't want chunks of almond butter or cottage cheese visible in the smoothie!
- Pour your well-blended keto smoothies into glasses. Top with fresh blueberries, if desired. These are easiest to drink with wide-width paper straws.
This is a level 2 recipe (transition and weight maintenance). This is a high-energy snack, providing 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! I’m completely convinced that keto smoothies for weight loss can be a thing. The cottage cheese is integral to this recipe, providing most of the filling protein. Swap the 6% cottage cheese for low-fat cottage cheese if you are looking for a lower calorie smoothie. Lowering the fat in a recipe will (generally) also lower the calories. If you have a fat loss goal, you might want to try slipping some cottage cheese into your other smoothie recipes. Anoint yourself the king or queen of the cottage cheese smoothie for weight loss. You’ll enjoy the benefits of high-quality protein, calcium, and other essential nutrients from your secret smoothie ingredient. Be sure to watch the video and see how quickly you can whip this one up! Woo hoo, (almost) instant gratification! Nutrition information is for one serving. Carbs listed are net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber) and do not include the optional fresh blueberries.
