If It Looks Good, It Tastes Good
Pretty food tastes better, and that’s a fact. Maybe that’s part of why this keto smoothie bowl is so delicious– although surely the berries, silky smooth texture, delectably sweet flavor, and tasty toppings contribute.
I started making this smoothie bowl as an excuse to eat more granola. Which I’m totally hooked on– but you already know this because I tell you All. The. Time. (sorry!)
Anyway, granola needs a vehicle– but sometimes, Greek yogurt is too tart, and adding it to smoothies is a choking hazard. So one day, it dawned on me. Why don’t I add less milk to my smoothie? Why don’t I eat it with a spoon? Why don’t I make a low carb smoothie bowl?
Full transparency: I did not invent the smoothie bowl. But I did invent THIS smoothie bowl. And with all the topping options, you can invent your very own too. So go, my friend. Unleash the artist inside of you. Blend, decorate, and devour. And fill your morning with a little more beauty 🥤❤️ – Linds x
The trick to this low carb breakfast is using COLD ingredients because cold smoothies taste way better. If frozen fruit isn’t an option, you can always make your keto smoothie bowl and stash it in the fridge for an hour before diving in.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Frozen berries – The best low carb fruits for keto smoothies are raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries (yes, blueberries are higher in carbs). Feel free to sub in whatever works with your eating plan.
- Avocado, diced + frozen. Dice up your avocado and put it on a plate to freeze while you make your morning coffee. Or even the night before.
- Low carb milk – I switch between light almond and coconut milk. Use what you love.
- Low carb protein powder, vanilla – You don’t have to add protein powder (I always do for protein and additional flavor!). But if you do, taste test and make sure you like the flavor first– I hate pea protein powders, and avoid them at all costs! Also, read labels carefully, as many products contain added sugar. Finally, if you choose to skip the protein powder, you’ll want to add a bit more sweetener.
- Lakanto or Swerve, for additional sweetness. I use these 2 keto sweeteners most frequently– if using allulose or a different brand of erythritol, know that they’re 70% as sweet.
Best Smoothie Bowl Toppings
Now for the fun part. Your keto smoothie bowl simply wouldn’t be complete without a handful of toppings. Keep it low carb with these delicious options:
- Chopped low carb nuts and seeds, such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, hemp seeds, or pepitas.
- Unsweetened, shredded coconut – I can’t dig into this low carb smoothie bowl without it.
- Low carb chocolate chips
- Sliced fruit – again, berries are your lowest carb option.
- Granola! Check out my low carb chocolate granola to switch things up.
Low carb smoothie bowls are best enjoyed right after making them. However, I have stored them sealed and in the fridge for a day or so–they won’t be as pretty but they’ll taste great. Just give them a good stir before diving in.
Want to meal prep your smoothie bowl? Pour your blended ingredients into a resealable bag and into the freezer. Next time you want a smoothie bowl for breakfast, place the smoothie in the fridge the night before, top, and enjoy.
