Breakfast is a pretty easy choice when you are living a keto lifestyle. Bacon and eggs are often our go to for breakfast most days. Having said that, occasionally we like to mix it up. Sometimes, we don’t have the time for a hot breakfast and just want something quick and easy. This keto breakfast smoothie recipe is so quick and easy to make, you can even drink it on your way to work if you are really short on time.

If you love smoothies as much as we do and are looking for a few different recipes check out some of our favourites.
Zero Carb Protein Powder
We like to add protein powder to our smoothies to really make them a nutritious meal and also more filling. Our preferred protein powder is Isopure Zero Carb. Not only is it zero carb but it is 100% pure whey protein isolate and sweetened with stevia, one of our preferred natural sweeteners.
We purchase our Isopure from iHerb because they offer free shipping to Australia and it is usually pretty fast delivery too. We usually stick with the creamy vanilla flavour as it is the most versatile. We can then add extra flavour ourselves with berries, cacao powder or coffee.
Isopure Zero Carb comes in the below flavours –
- Creamy Vanilla
- Banana Cream
- Cookies & Cream
- Dutch Chocolate
- Strawberries & Cream
Best Milks for Keto Smoothies
If you have been living a keto lifestyle for a awhile, you would know that cow’s milk is quite high in carbs and generally avoided on a keto diet. Even though we avoid regular cows milk, there are some excellent alternatives.
- Nut milks like almond milk, macadamia milk and hazelnut milk are a great low carb alternative to cow’s milk. You can make your own nut milk. Check out how here.
- Coconut milk. We love coconut milk. We tend to prefer the coconut milk in the can that can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket.
- Keto milk. Yes, you heard that right, keto milk. You can actually make your own keto milk using full-fat cream and water. Check out how to make your own keto milk here.
- We like to stock up on berries when they are on special or in season and freeze them. They are so great to have on hand in the freezer for smoothies.
- We prefer to use a high-speed blender for our smoothies, as they can handle the frozen fruit much better and ensure a smooth and creamy result.
- If you want to take this smoothie to the next level try adding some keto-friendly toppings. You could try some granola, coconut flakes, extra berries or cacao nibs.
- We love the versatility of this smoothie recipe because you can really use the ingredients you have on hand. Our favourite version is a combination of blueberries and strawberries with coconut milk and peanut butter.

I’m confused with the macros on the above recipe for the keto breakfast smoothie. It lists zero net carbs, yet calls for 100 grams blueberries & Tbsp of nut butter.
Do you have a carb count for this?
Love your site! Thank you?
Hi, The net carbs displays for some weird reason even though we deliberately didn’t calculated the macros and just put this note in the recipe.
As the ingredients are flexible in this recipe, we have not done the nutritional calculation. If you are tracking your macros we recommend entering your specific ingredients for this recipe into your preferred macro tracker.
For this recipe, it is going to be best to work out your own macros.
