Keto Creamy Strawberry Smoothie might be the best breakfast you can have! After all, it can also be considered a dessert. There is no doubt it can also serve as a satisfying afternoon or evening drink. So, what’s not to love? Well, we have never been “smoothie kind of people.” Consequently, we always look for taste in just cooked foods. However, this smoothie begs to be devoured!
We do make a delicious Low Carb Creamsicle Cocktail and one of our top posts is often our Keto Pina Colada drink. Both of these could be made without the alcohol and you would end up with a “smoothie-like” drink. So, maybe it is time for Tasty Low Carb to jump on the “Smoothie Train” and begin enjoying the tastes and benefits. We think you will love this one!
Our Keto Creamy Strawberry Smoothie is similar to any smoothie. It must be creamy like a milkshake, with the sweetness of ice cream, and with a delicious flavor. Original smoothies used bananas and milk to obtain that creamy milkshake-like texture. To make our smoothie low carb, we use avocado and whipping cream for the same thickness. Avocado is the new banana! If you are skipping dairy you could use almond milk instead of cream.
For sweetness, skip the sugar, and try erythritol instead. The carbs are gone and there is little after taste. With a high-speed blender there is also no trace of grittiness in the finished smoothie. Flavor without the carbs? Berries are the best choice! We like strawberries since they are a bit sweeter than blueberries or raspberries. However, any of the low-carb berries will work.
The preparation could not be easier. Simply load the ingredients into your blender and blend until you have the texture you want. Less than a minute will yield the perfect smoothie texture. To change the thickness you can adjust the amount of ice, water, or cream. We really enjoy our blend, but you can certainly experiment.

Joanie added just a little bit of vanilla extract. She says it brings out the flavor and richness of the cream. It makes sense, since we both remember making milkshakes as youngsters when there was always a bit of vanilla added to the mix. Another touch is to augment the berries with some of sugar-free strawberry syrup. Try it this way, it really does enhance that berry taste!

Tried this recipe this morning- I am still full hours later! Really delicious and super filling/satisfying.
I would say to anyone trying the recipe to make sure to use a ripe avocado (mine was not quite ripe all the way through and I could definitely taste it slightly). Also- don’t skimp out on the strawberry syrup! I thought it was a lot as I was pouring it, but the finished product doesn’t taste too sweet or overwhelming. I actually added some more calorie free sweetener after I tasted it!
Thanks for the recipe!
You are correct, ripe avocado is best. You want a creamy smoothie, and do not want to taste the avocado. It is there for health and a creamy taste. When I first put the recipe together and tasted the result I added more syrup. Again, you are correct. Thank you for the comment and hints . . . Joanie.
I wasn’t sure about this with Avocado but this is the BEST smoothie I’ve ever had!!!
It is a good base element for any smoothie. So healthy, so Keto, and so delicious. Thanks for the comment . . . Joanie.
