How to Make a Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie Recipe
Gather the five ingredients, and you’re already halfway to making a healthy strawberry keto smoothie in just five minutes!
I suggest adding this to your list of keto breakfast recipes and making it this week!
Strawberries – Fresh seasonal fruit is the main feature of this easy recipe. However, if you want this out of season, blend up the same amount of frozen strawberries without a problem.
Strawberries are great for low-carb recipes because they are the most keto-friendly fruit and have the lowest amount of carbs, compared to other berries. (1, 2).
Cream cheese – Don’t skimp on the cream cheese if you want the velvety rich cheesecake texture. 2 ounces is enough to achieve the perfect thickness.
Almond milk – A light liquid, like almond milk, thins the smoothie into a drinkable treat. This balances the cream cheese and heavy cream. Substitute with an equal amount of hemp or pumpkin seed milk or water.
Heavy cream – Eating heavy cream on keto (without any guilt!) is one of my favorite aspects of this diet. It makes everything taste better!
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.
Follow this 3-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.
Trim the green tops off the strawberries. Cut out any bruises or overly soft spots. Add all five ingredients to the blender.
Turn the blender on and blend on high until the ingredients are smooth and well combined.
Divide the smoothie between two glasses and serve immediately.
Smoothies are best fresh since they don’t last long in the fridge. If you have leftovers, freeze the blended smoothie in a small sandwich-sized ziplock bag. Lay it flat in the freezer. Then, once it’s frozen, arrange the bag standing vertically so it takes less space.
There are two servings per recipe. 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.
Keto Strawberry Smoothie FAQ
You might have some questions if keto smoothie recipes are new to you or if you’ve never worked with low-carb ingredients before. Let me answer some common queries and clarify the process.
Not all strawberry smoothies are keto, so double-check the recipe or ask to see the nutrition label if you’re ordering in a restaurant. However, this recipe is a completely keto strawberry smoothie and 100% guaranteed to keep you in ketosis!
Fruit smoothies are great for a keto diet if you like simple meal prep, quick snacks, or sugar-free treats with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Smoothies are a kid-friendly meal, too, so everyone can enjoy them together.
The US Department of Agriculture states a single, large strawberry has 6 calories. There are 0 grams fat, 1 g carb, 0 g protein. A large strawberry measures 1-⅜ inch in diameter. Now you have a reference point anytime you eat strawberries on a keto diet.
Per ¼ cup whole strawberries, there are just under 3 grams total carbohydrate and 1 gram of fiber. This equates to 2 grams net carb, or 12 calories which is how much you get in one serving of this keto-friendly strawberry smoothie.
Storing frozen strawberries in your freezer is great if you want to enjoy them out of season or like the ease and convenience of frozen food. I suggest removing the green tops and choosing if you want them whole, sliced, or diced. Then, arrange the berries in a single layer on a cookie sheet and transfer to the freezer until solid. Finally, once frozen, remove them and store in an airtight container until use.
