Blend a keto blackberry smoothie in 5 minutes with only 3 ingredients, plus water! It’s a quick and easy low-carb summer breakfast or snack for adults and kids alike. Follow the simple variation if you prefer a paleo or dairy-free option.
How to Make a Keto Berry Smoothie Recipe
Gather 3 ingredients (plus water) and you’re halfway to making a Blackberry keto smoothie in just 5 minutes! Meal prep doesn’t get easier than smoothies.
I suggest adding this to your list of keto breakfast recipes and making it this week!
Greek yogurt – This will be the thick and creamy base. Substitute equal parts with homemade raw milk yogurt if you like fermenting probiotics at home or coconut yogurt if you want a dairy-free option. Another choice is blending a blackberry smoothie with almond milk or even heavy cream instead of milk. Cream is a great alternative if you want to increase your macros but can’t find a way to eat so much fat. Liquid calories are very easy to get down.
Blackberries – Frozen blackberries are great for this recipe. Substitute with fresh blackberries and an optional ½ cup crushed ice or just fresh berries alone. If you’re fortunate to have boysenberries, they also make a great substitution.
Vanilla extract – Adding a splash of vanilla extract brings a touch of sweetness. If you want it even sweeter, add up to 1 tablespoon of powdered keto sweetener.
Water – Half a cup thins the yogurt, so the smoothie is thin enough to sip through a straw.
Follow this three-step process, and you can’t go wrong! It’s so easy; even kids and teenagers can make this for themselves. Although, depending on their age, you might want to use adult supervision in the kitchen when knives and blenders are involved.
Add all the ingredients to the blender cup.
Press the lid on firmly and blend on high until the ingredients are smooth and well combined.
Divide the smoothie between two glasses and serve immediately. Add a straw, if desired.
It’s unlikely you’ll have leftovers, but if you do, store the blended smoothie in a small sandwich-sized ziplock bag in the freezer. Typically, smoothies don’t last long in the fridge, therefore, eat it fresh or freeze for later. I like to lay the bag flat horizontally in the freezer. Then, once it’s frozen, move so it’s standing vertically and takes less space.
The recipe yield is two servings. However, you can quickly increase the serving size by toggling the different buttons located on the recipe card. For example, pick 1x, 2x, or 3x and let the card multiply the ingredients accordingly. It’s easy!
