Smoothies are a great addition to any keto diet. They provide an easy way to consume extra protein, nutrients and healthy fats on a regular basis. A liquid base is an essential part of most smoothie recipes and almond milk is a good keto friendly choice.
Not only is it low in carbs, but the plant-based milk is also dairy free. This is important for anyone on a vegan keto diet or people just wanting to cut down their dairy intake.
In this list, we’re providing you with a wide range of different keto almond milk smoothie recipes to try. There is plenty of variety in the flavors and ingredients that the smoothies use. Even if you don’t drink smoothies regularly, you’re likely to find a few new favorites on the list.
On a side note, you could also use almond milk substitutes in these smoothie recipes. Just be sure to choose one that’s keto friendly.

PS. Coconut milk smoothies are an alternative approach to consider. These taste just as good and you can often simply change the type of milk that you use.

Delicious Keto Iced Coffee Smoothie
It’s easy to see how amazing this recipe from perfectketo.com would be for breakfast. You’re getting your morning coffee as part of it, along with some healthy ingredients. The recipe is lower in protein and calories than many examples further on in this list, but it would still be perfect for plenty of situations.

Strawberry Avocado Keto Smoothie
This recipe, from wholesomeyum.com, sounds like it should be complicated. That’s not the case at all. The recipe just uses four different ingredients.

It really does work well and the ingredients help to create a fantastic texture for the smoothie.
Blackberry Cheesecake Keto Smoothie
A blackberry cheesecake has such a delightful taste, so it’s a natural choice to add the same flavor combination into a smoothie. Blackberries are a good choice for keto too, as they’re relatively low in carbs (compared to other fruits!). Besides, berries always taste amazing and they’re a popular choice for smoothies.
The recipe comes from ieatketo.com and it’s a particularly good one if you’re trying to increase your fat intake. In fact, a serving contains 37 grams of fat and 10 grams of protein. That’s pretty impressive. You could even use the smoothie as a meal replacement option.

Here’s an interesting flavor combination to try out – kale and coconut. The recipe comes from Alejandra at alwaysorderdessert.com and she aims to create a recipe with very little sweetness. This means there are no added sugars or fruits in the mix. You could add some sweetener, but you really shouldn’t need to. The slight sweetness of the ingredients will be more than enough for most people.
Chocolate And Avocado Shake
This chocolate shake comes from myketokitchen.com. The inclusion of avocado helps to make the shake thicker than most, without compromising the carb content. I love the way that the chocolate aspect isn’t too intense. This means that you get to experience all of the flavors of the smoothie, rather than just getting overwhelmed by the chocolate.
The Best Low Carb Protein Shake
Here’s another fantastic recipe for chocolate lovers. The use of protein powder is particularly important. This increases the protein content of the recipe, making it more filling. As Corina points out, this style is often more appealing than constantly relying on meat and eggs for your protein intake. You can find the smoothie recipe at perfectketo.com. There are also details about the benefits that you can expect from the drink.
Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Who can say no to chocolate and peanut butter? This keto smoothie takes full advantage of the flavor combination, offering you a creamy and satisfying smoothie.

Turmeric Keto Smoothie
Turmeric isn’t the most common smoothie ingredient, but it is a powerful choice. The spice has been linked to various health benefits, including anti-inflammatory roles. It also creates this wonderful orange color in the smoothie.
The smoothie has other beneficial ingredients too, like cinnamon and ginger. Simply put, it’s a great way to fill you up and boost your health at the same time. You can find all the details that you need at ieatketo.com.
Avocado Smoothie With Coconut Milk, Ginger And Turmeric
Speaking of turmeric, here’s another smoothie that uses the spice. This particular recipe is for a green smoothie, where the turmeric is just one of the flavors present. The drink comes from Kim at lowcarbmaven.com, who always creates amazing low carb recipes.
I love the combination of flavors in this recipe. The use of avocado, coconut milk, almond milk and other ingredients helps to create a complex flavor, one that stands out. You can also tweak the smoothie if you want a different texture or flavor balance.
It’s hard to go past a rich chocolaty recipe like this one. After all, chocolate is such a good pick-me-up. It is an ideal breakfast flavor too. The recipe is a particularly good one for kids, because it is healthy, even though it tastes like a treat. You can find the details at tessathedomesticdiva.com. Tessa also provides information about additions you can make to boost the nutrition further.

These ingredients both add nutrients into the smoothie, making it great for health. What’s more, the recipe contains enough fats and protein to make the smoothie a great meal replacement choice.
Maple Almond Green Smoothie
If you don’t normally like green smoothies, this recipe could be the one for you. It uses maple and almond as key flavors. These help to offset the taste of the greens, creating a smoothie that really does taste delicious. The recipe comes from texasgranolagirl.com. Don’t be too concerned about the maple. Emilie relies on maple extract, rather than maple syrup. This provides you with the desired maple flavor, without adding in sugar.

Cheesecake flavors seem to work well in many situations – including smoothies. This smoothie recipe, from buttertogetherkitchen.com, is one great example.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
Here’s a simple shake that uses a classic flavor combination. The recipe comes from Amanda over at theskinnyfork.com and it only uses four ingredients. You don’t have to stick with peanut butter as a key flavor either. This can be swapped for almond butter, which helps to bring out the flavor of the almond milk too.
Keto Flu Smoothie
The keto flu happens when your body is adjusting to ketosis and it can be a frustrating experience. This recipe, from howtothisandthat.com, is designed to fight the keto flu by providing nutritious ingredients. It also contains pink Himalayan salt. That addition might seem odd, but the sodium is critical when you’re on a keto diet.
Melissa also mentions that including salt in a smoothie isn’t bad anyway. The salt helps to make the other flavors stand out more. If nothing else, the smoothie is a different style to try.
Pineapple Kale Smoothie
Including pineapple in a keto smoothie is very unusual, but that’s exactly what this recipe from mycrazylife.com offers. The smoothie works because the other ingredients are all very low in carbs. You can even make it with water to drop the carb content down further. Just make sure you calculate the carb content for the variation that you’re doing. The inclusion of pineapple does mean that this smoothie is higher in carbs than many other choices on this list.
Vanilla Ice Cream Keto Coffee Smoothie
I love the combination of flavors in this smoothie. Seriously, doesn’t it just sound amazing? The addition of coffee is also ideal if you plan to have the smoothie first thing in the morning. That gives even gives you the chance to have your coffee and your breakfast in the same drink.
You can check out the full recipe at forgetsugarfriday.com. Jessica also has an interesting way to use the coffee to make sure your smoothie stays cold.
Strawberry Smoothie With Almond Milk
Strawberries aren’t the most keto friendly berry, but they’re still viable if you keep an eye on your portions. This recipe from sweetashoney.com proves that. Besides, strawberries taste amazing. Why give up on that flavor if you don’t need to?
There are only 6 net grams of carbs in the entire shake, making it perfect for keto dieters. The original version of the recipe uses a combination of almond milk and heavy cream. However, you can swap the heavy cream out for coconut cream if you want a completely dairy free smoothie.
Carine also highlights a variety of ways to make the recipe more interesting, like adding avocado, chia seeds, or cream cheese. Those additions all provide extra nutrients, while also tweaking the texture and flavor of the recipe.
Peanut Butter Low Carb Smoothie
Taylor from foodfaithfitness.com offers this smoothie recipe. Not only is the smoothie keto friendly, but it’s also packed with protein and uses only a handful of ingredients.
The combination of ingredients also means that this treat tastes much like a peanut butter cup. That flavor profile has to be a good thing – right?
Peanut Butter Smoothie
Here’s another chocolate peanut butter option. This one comes from Arman at thebigmansworld.com and it looks seriously impressive. Garnishing the smoothie like this is a great way to make it more exciting.
There’s an interesting feature in this recipe too – powdered peanut butter. Arman mentions that this isn’t absolutely essential, but does make the smoothie taste so much better.
Cinnamon Almond Butter Breakfast Shake
This shake, from ibreatheimhungry.com, follows a different flavor profile. Instead of using chocolate, it features a combination of almond butter and cinnamon. These ingredients combine together perfectly, creating a delicious shake that isn’t too intense.
The description of the recipe mentions that this one was originally meant to be a smoothie, but the texture didn’t end up quite right. That’s okay though, shakes are just as delicious as smoothies.
If you love berries, then this recipe from sugarfreemom.com is perfect. It’s another one that looks stunning in the photos, partly because of the berries smashed on the side of the glass.
The recipe includes details for making the sugar free cream that is pictured on top of the smoothie. While this isn’t essential at all, it does make the smoothie taste so much better.
