How to Make A Low Carb Breakfast Smoothie
Brace yourselves, this low carb breakfast smoothie is an easy one:
- Toss your ingredients in a blender
The only important tip I’d like to share is to add your milk to the blender first — now, I know this seems counter intuitive (because it’ll splash when you add the heavier ingredients) but doing this will prevent your blender from jamming up, and your ingredients from getting lodged under the blade.
Low Carb Protein Shake For Meal Prep
Busy week ahead of you? No problem! This low carb protein shake is PERFECT for low carb meal prep.
Simple toss the ingredients (except the milk) into a resealable bag and into the freezer — you can prep as many low carb breakfast smoothie baggies as you’d like, I like to prep a bunch at once so they’re always ready.
Toss them in the freezer, and when you’re ready for a quick and easy breakfast, just empty the contents of a bag into the blender, along with the milk. It’s that easy!
Low Carb Strawberry Smoothie + Other Variations
Smoothies may just be the most customizable of recipes. You can add, skip or swap whatever ingredients you’d like to make the smoothie of your dreams!
Here are a few ideas to get your creativity going:
- Use different low carb fruits — Stick to berries for the lowest carb option. Low carb strawberry smoothie is a family favorite of ours!
- Low carb nuts + seeds — I added walnuts to this low carb breakfast smoothie, feel free to use whatever you prefer. (use unsalted nuts!)
- Different low carb milk — full fat, canned coconut milk is delicious in smoothies. You can also sub some of the milk for heavy cream.
- Low carb vegetables for bonus points! Pick your veggies wisely and you won’t even know they’re there! Opt for mild tasting greens like kale or spinach.
- Add in some low carb peanut butter — skip the nuts and opt for PB instead! Read the labels, and be leery of added sugar. (there should only be peanuts + salt on the ingredients list!)
- Low carb protein powder — I’m a huge fan of this Organic Vanilla Vegan Protein Powder and this Vanilla Whey Protein Powder. Choose your protein powder wisely, as this can make or break your smoothie!

- Low Carb Milkshakes (they’re not as sinful as they sounds)
- Low Carb Peanut Butter Smoothie
Psst — If you’d like to switch things up a bit, turn any of these into a smoothie bowl, by simply adding less liquid and enjoying it with a spoon instead! Top it with low carb granola and you’ll never enjoy your low carb breakfast smoothie any other way!
