How to Make a Low Carb Peanut Butter Smoothie
Making this low carb peanut butter smoothie is ridiculously easy…
Just toss your ingredients into the blender and blend away!
Now, I know this may sound silly, but it’s important to layer your low carb peanut butter smoothie ingredients in a specific order, so the ingredients don’t get caught under the blade of your blender and jam up.
Here’s the order I use:
- Liquids (milk, water, low carb Greek yogurt)
- Powders (protein powders, cocoa powder, etc)
- Smaller Stuff (small pieces of fruits/veggies)
- Bigger stuff (frozen fruit, veggies, or ice)
Low Carb Breakfast Smoothie Ingredients
One of the best things about this low carb breakfast smoothie is that you can use a variety of ingredients to create whichever flavor you prefer!
Here are the base ingredients to get started with:
I recommend using canned full fat coconut low carb milk — it cranks up the fat content, as well as the creaminess in this low carb breakfast smoothie. Almond milk, coconut milk or half almond milk / half heavy cream work as well.
- If you’re using a light almond or coconut milk, use that instead of water in the recipe below.
- If you’re using canned coconut milk, keep in mind these products rarely contain stabilizers, which means the milk and cream will separate. So be sure to shake the can vigorously before opening it, and smooth out any additional clumps with a fork.
Bring on that chocolate-y flavor! Opt for dutch process cocoa, as it’s significantly less bitter than regular cocoa powder, and will add more decadent, chocolatey flavor to your smoothie.
The sweetness in our low carb peanut butter smoothie comes from erythritol, my favorite of the keto sweeteners.
The avocados will add a smooth texture, as well as healthy fats and fiber. Opt for haas avocados, as they’re higher in fat and creaminess when compared to Florida avocados — trust me, it makes a HUGE difference in these smoothies!
Believe it or not, salt plays a BIG roll in our low carb peanut butter smoothies, as it intensifies the sweetness of chocolate. If you don’t believe me, check out the labels on any chocolate bar — salt is always an ingredient. Now, sprinkle it in!
What’s a low carb peanut butter smoothie without PB?! Read product labels to ensure the product you buy is low carb peanut butter, as many products contain added sugar.
VANILLA, WATER + ICE

I like throwing in a handful of mild tasting low carb vegetables to add some greens to my morning routine. Kale, spinach and swiss chard are my faves, their flavor will be masked by the sweetener!
