Are smoothies low carb?
Many smoothies out there, especially the ones you buy from smoothie shops, are not low carb as they are made from fruit, usually with added sweeteners.
I personally think that fruit sugar (and really any kind of sugar in moderation!) is okay, but I know a lot of you internet friends are doing the “low carb thing” so a SUGAR FREE SMOOTHIE situation just sort of seemed in order.
Even though I’m a fruit smoothie inclusivist – a healthy strawberry watermelon smoothie or mango avocado smoothie is totally my jam – I am feeling VERY 100 about this no carb smoothie because it tastes like a swirly-twirly, frosty and CREAMY peanut butter cup or keto chocolate peanut butter fat bomb!
Is peanut butter Keto Friendly ?
Peanut butter is generally approved when following a keto diet. It is a healthy snack however you need to consume it in moderation to stay in ketosis. Also make sure the peanut butter is made from 100% peanuts with no added sugar or palm oil. The standard keto diet asks you to have between 50 to 70 grams of carbs per day so make sure you consume peanut butter withing that metric. The other option is to buy a keto peanut butter like this one.
Can I Make this Peanut Butter Smoothie as a Protein Shake?
This smoothie is a protein packed meal, however if you do want to add up extra protein, you can add a scoop of low carb protein powder to give you that extra fuel to conquer the day.
Is Almond Milk Keto Friendly?
Yes! Almond milk is extremely low in carbs which makes it an ideal milk alternative to add in your tea, coffee or smoothies. In my opinion, almond milk is the perfect keto friendly milk alternative. It has excellent taste and a very similar texture to traditional milk. However you need to make sure the almond milk does not have any added sugar and it is in its raw natural state like this one.
If you are the type of person who loves to go out to buy low carb shakes because it seems difficult make at home and you don’t know what ingredients to add to your smoothie, this recipe is for you! Blending up keto smoothie recipes can be fast, easy, AND healthy while also tasting so good! Here’s what you’ll need to make this keto smoothie:
- Almond Milk
- Crushed Ice
- Monk fruit
- Natural creamy Peanut Butter
How to make a Keto Smoothie?
Place all of the ingredients into a high powered blender. Turn it on at a high setting and blend until everything is broken down and smooth.
Pour into glasses, add a straw if you wish, and slurp up!
Almond Butter: If you are not a fan of peanut butter or allergic to peanuts you can also substitute the peanut butter for almond butter. I have given it a try and it tastes equally delicious.
Other Keto Milk: Majority of the vegan milk options are keto friendly. A few of my favorites include Cocnut milk, Soy milk and pea milk.

Can you store a smoothie?
You can store your smoothie in the fridge for 1-2 days. I recommend consuming the smoothie right when it is made as it tends to lose its freshness over time. Alternatively you can store smoothies in the freezer for up to 2 months.
How many carbs does this Smoothie have?
This delicious and nutritious keto breakfast smoothie is full of good, healthy fats and protein which means it will keep you full until your next snack or meal AND supply you with the energy you need! Each smoothie contains 15 grams of carbohydrates.
