Keto-Friendly, Fat-Filled Breakfast Smoothie Recipes

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a fresh keto-friendly breakfast smoothie. I don’t always feel up to eating a proper meal, so I opt for the liquid version instead. The thing is…we can’t have bananas, we can have limited berries, no mango, no pineapple, no oats. What’s left? Plenty! Many of these recipes use an avocado as the base ingredient to add the creamy texture (like a banana would), and many have water and ice to bring the hydration and get the pourable texture going. A few are a little decadent with full-fat cream, while others are more of a refreshing drink than a smoothie, with herbs and citrus as flavor.

These smoothies are intended to be a full breakfast as opposed to an accompaniment (with the exception of one or two which are drinks more than meals), otherwise you risk going over your net carb allowance. Feel free to add any of your keto powders and supplements to these, but be sure to add the extra macros to the total.

You’ll notice that many of these recipes feature flaxseed oil. This incredible oil provides omega 3 fatty acids to support the skin, hair, heart and gut health. Get yourself a bottle of it and use it everyday (raw, it’s best not to cook flaxseed oil). You will really notice the difference to your skin, I can speak from experience on this!

When it comes to the “method” – they’re all the same…simply throw the ingredients into your blender or bullet, blitz and drink.

Avocado Chocolate Smoothie

Did I sell you at “chocolate”? This smoothie is so tasty, incredibly rich and super luxurious. But it’s also filled with fiber, fats and vitamins all in one glass. This is a great smoothie for adding keto-friendly powders and supplements to.

Raspberry-Vanilla Smoothie

Raspberries have to be one of the earth’s most incredible treats. When you combine them with avocado (another magical earth-given treat), cream and vanilla paste, you get something pretty special. I add liquid stevia to mine, just to give it more of a sweet milkshake kind of vibe.

Coconut-Spinach Smoothie

A smoothie for packing a punch of leafy green goodness, fiber and fat. Spinach and kale are great for getting a nutrient dosage early in the morning without having to actually eat a meal. This is a great smoothie for getting the digestion moving and filling you up until lunch.

Almond Butter Blueberry Smoothie

Only half a cup of blueberries is enough to give this smoothie color, flavor and antioxidant action. The almond butter is perfect for fats, texture and nutty flavor. And avocado…well, we know what that does! Creamy, fatty and fiber-filled.

Mint-Cucumber-Citrus Cooler

This is more of a drink than a smoothie, so enjoy it on the side of a proper keto breakfast. It’s a great drink for Summer mornings when you need extra hydration after a dehydrating sleep. Perfect for anyone who has mint and lemons growing in the garden!

Peanut Butter Cinnamon Shake

For peanut lovers, this is the best keto smoothie ever. Avocado provides the thick base, cream adds creamy fattiness, and cinnamon gives a hit of warmth. Flaxseed oil is there for the skin-loving fatty acids and satiating effect.

Ginger, Turmeric and Berry Cold-Curer

This is more of an ice-based drink than a smoothie as it doesn’t have a creamy base. This is a drink to turn to when you’re feeling under the weather with a sore throat, headache and runny nose. You’re likely not in the mood for eating much, so this is a super-light drink to get at least something in your tummy. Ginger, turmeric, lemon and berries are all fantastic foods to sip on in the midst of a cold.
