Almonds are a fantastic nut for keto. Not only do they contain plenty of healthy fats, but they’re also full of beneficial nutrients. The creators of keto smoothies use almonds in various ways.
Some take advantage of almond butter as a way to increase the protein content of the smoothie and to add in extra flavor. Others focus on almond milk as the liquid base.
In a similar way, some smoothies feature almond as a key flavor. With these smoothies, you can often taste the almond in the final drink.
In other cases, the flavor of almonds may not be noticeable at all. Instead, the almond-containing ingredients are used for other reasons, like for nutrition or for texture.
This list of keto almond smoothie recipes includes a wide selection of different recipes using almond milk, almond butter or almonds themselves. We’ve focused on including plenty of styles and flavors.
This makes the list a great way to get started with keto smoothies and see just how many different options there are out there.
Keto Almond Smoothie Recipes
Easy Blackberry Almond Coconut Smoothie
This first recipe comes from goodketofinds.com. It’s an easy recipe to create, using only a handful of ingredients.
It relies on blackberries for most of the flavor. This is a fantastic choice, as blackberries are full of flavor and work well for keto. The smoothie ends up containing around 4.5 net grams of carbs per serving if you use a quarter of a cup of the blackberries.
You could increase the number of blackberries if you want a more vibrant flavor. Just be aware that doing so will increase the carb content too.
On a side note, the recipe is relatively unusual in that it contains both coconut milk (or coconut cream) and almond milk. Many recipes use one or the other.
Berry Blast Smoothie Bowl
This recipe is everything that a smoothie bowl should be. Not only does the bowl look amazing, but it is also filled with nutrients and tasty ingredients. It even pops with color.
The smoothie is made using mixed berries and raspberries, so you can be certain that you’ll enjoy the flavor. The details can be found at rocketandhoney.com. This is even another recipe that uses both almond and coconut milk.
Crunchy Raspberry Keto Smoothie
Here’s a simpler recipe – from the site 5minutelife.me. The smoothie uses just four ingredients, which is pretty impressive.
You’re also getting more berries than normal. The smoothie actually uses a full cup of raspberries and that’s for a single serving. This decision means that you’re getting a very intense flavor.
Don’t worry, the smoothie is still keto friendly even with all of those raspberries.
Doesn’t this smoothie look amazing? It comes from thelittlepine.com. The recipe is a little different because you can use whatever type of low carb milk you want to. Almond milk is a fantastic choice and will complement the rest of the recipe perfectly.
The smoothie does end up being relatively high in carbs, with around ten net grams per serving. Lindsey includes details about various ways that you can decrease the carb content.
This includes using a different type of fruit or cutting back on the number of blueberries. If you decrease the berries, you can use a low carb sweetener to ensure the smoothie still tastes good.
Vanilla Almond Smoothie
This recipe comes from yurielkaim.com. It’s a particularly good choice if you love almonds, as the recipe includes both almond butter and almond milk.
This is a good recipe for nutrients too, as Yuri includes cauliflower and protein powder in the mix. The cauliflower might sound like an odd choice, but you’re not going to taste it in the finished smoothie.
Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie
Cheesecake smoothies like this one are a popular style because they work so well. The recipe relies on a combination of cream cheese and blueberries, which ends up tasting a lot like a blueberry cheesecake.
Almond milk is used as the liquid base for the smoothie. Various other ingredients round out the drink to create a perfect balance of flavor and texture. You can find the details at buttertogetherkitchen.com.
Dark Chocolate Almond Joy Smoothie Fat Bomb
I love the combination of flavors in this recipe. You end up with something that is similar to an almond joy bar. The recipe is also richer in chocolate than many other smoothie recipes.
This time, coconut milk is the milk of choice, but almond butter is also included in the recipe. The almond butter is where the almond flavor comes from. You’ll get some nutrition from the ingredient too.
The recipe itself comes from Shannon at musthikemusteat.com.
Cinnamon Almond Butter Breakfast Shake
Here’s another recipe that features almond as a key flavor. This one comes from ibreatheimhungry.com. It doesn’t just include almond butter either. Almond extract is part of the mix too.
This choice helps to heighten the almond flavor even further. The smoothie ends up being unusually high in protein and in fat, without containing too many carbs. This combination is ideal if you want a meal replacement smoothie.
Blueberry Almond Smoothie
Megan from madcreationshub.com offers this blueberry smoothie that you can try. You’re not going to taste the almond much in this recipe, as it is in the form of the almond milk.
The recipe also includes lime and blueberries, which are both strong flavors in their own right. This isn’t a bad thing, as the finished smoothie should be refreshing and vibrant. It is also low in carbs, with less than five grams of net carbs per serving.
Maple Almond Green Smoothie
Here’s an interesting combination of flavors to try out. The recipe comes from texasgranolagirl.com. It contains a variety of ingredients, like cinnamon, vanilla extract and maple extract, not to mention almond butter.
All of these ingredients make the smoothie taste much more interesting than your typical green smoothie. It is a good choice if you don’t have many carbs to spare – the smoothie only contains 4.1 net grams of carbs per serving.
Chocolate Almond Keto Smoothie
This simple smoothie takes full advantage of the flavors of almonds and chocolate. The recipe comes from lowcarbsosimple.com and it includes both almond butter and almond milk.
There are only a few other ingredients, so this is an easy recipe to prepare. I particularly love the grated dark chocolate on the top. This is an optional part of the recipe, but it does make the smoothie look stunning.
Keto Vanilla Shake
This shake has more subtle flavors than many others. It focuses on almond and on vanilla. The overall style works well, as you end up with a shake that isn’t excessively sweet. You can even top it with sliced almonds to focus on the almond flavor even more.
The recipe can be found at tastefulketo.com. Each serving just contains three net grams of carbs, making this an easy keto snack.
As the name suggests, this recipe focuses on avocado as the main flavor. It comes from the site myketokitchen.com and uses almond milk as the liquid base.
Peanut butter is included as well. You could easily swap this out for almond butter to get a more intense almond flavor in the smoothie.
Cocoa And Almond Butter Smoothie
This recipe is simplicity itself. There are only four ingredients to worry about and two of them involve almonds. Each serving of the smoothie just includes six net grams of carbs, which isn’t too bad.
You might also call this recipe a fat bomb, as it contains 25 grams of fat per serving. You can find the details at ketojam.com.
Chocolate Almond Butter Breakfast Shake
This recipe, from ieatketo.com, ends up tasting a lot like a chocolate milkshake. It has a similar texture too, making it a fun choice for picky eaters and for anyone who loves chocolate.
There are some additional details included on the site, such as a discussion on ways to make the smoothie creamier. Such information is perfect for helping you to get the shake exactly how you would like it.
Almond And Maca Smoothie
Here’s a different type of smoothie to consider. It comes from the site ketodietapp.com and combines the flavor of almonds with maca powder.
Martina suggests that you start slowly with the maca powder, as it can cause digestive issues if you have a large amount too soon. This is also a good smoothie for nutrition, as it contains a variety of beneficial ingredients.
Dairy Free Shamrock Shake
This smoothie comes from the site peaceloveandlowcarb.com. It’s a great choice if you want a more unusual combination of ingredients. The smoothie itself is inspired by a shamrock shake.
It includes avocado, peppermint and dark chocolate chips. The end result is a little bit like a creamy mint chocolate chip smoothie.
There’s another odd aspect to the recipe. It makes use of Silk Almond Coconut Milk. This product isn’t often featured in keto smoothie recipes, but the advantages are easy to see. If nothing else, the recipe is a good chance to try something a little different.
Low Carb Strawberry Smoothie
This recipe from wholesomeyum.com is a good choice if you just want something basic. There are just four ingredients in this recipe, all of which are pretty common.
This would also be a particularly appealing recipe for anyone who loves strawberries, as the flavor of the strawberries would shine through the most.
Strawberry Smoothie Bowl
Speaking of strawberries, here’s another recipe to consider. This one is simple as well, but it is in the form of a smoothie bowl rather than a drink.
The bowl style gives you the chance to include toppings, like the ones suggested in the recipe. You may also find that a smoothie bowl is more enjoyable to eat, especially if you have the time to sit down and enjoy it fully.
All the details that you need can be found at havebutterwilltravel.com.
Chocolate Smarter Smoothie
Chocolate recipes like this one are always amazing choices. The smoothie has a particularly intense chocolate flavor, which is complemented by the use of almond butter and almond milk.
Another cool thing is the way the smoothie suits many different diets. It is free from dairy, eggs and gluten, while also being paleo, whole30 and keto friendly. You can find all of the details at tasty-yummies.com.
Salted Caramel Keto Smoothie
This salted caramel smoothie comes from forgetsugarfriday.com. It’s an unusual recipe all around, as it takes advantage of a specific type of tea to create the salted caramel flavor.
The reliance on tea means that you’re getting a caramel flavor without adding on many carbs. As with many of these recipes, almond milk is used as the main source of liquid, while other ingredients add to the texture.
Chocolate Almond Smoothie
Madalaine, from lakesidetable.com, provides this keto recipe. As the name suggests, the smoothie relies heavily on chocolate and almond as the main flavors. There’s another cool ingredient too – coffee.
The coffee should make this smoothie a fantastic pick-me-up. It also helps the drink to taste a little different than other chocolate smoothies. You can always leave the coffee out if you would like to.
Peanut Butter Low Carb Smoothie
I love how this smoothie is packed full of flavor. It comes from the site foodfaithfitness.com and uses almond milk as one of the ingredients.
While this is a peanut butter smoothie, Taylor mentions that you can use almond butter instead if you would prefer to. Almond butter may be a better choice in many cases, especially for people on a paleo diet.
Chocolate Protein Smoothie
This recipe comes from primalkitchen.com. It features chocolate as the main flavor. It’s also a recipe that uses almond milk and coconut milk.
The amount of almond milk isn’t specified, as you simply add this based on the consistency that you’re looking for. This means that you’d add more almond milk if you wanted something similar to a shake and less if you wanted a thicker drink.
Healthy Strawberry Smoothie
The strawberry focus of this smoothie is certain to make it a hit. The recipe comes from chichiuguru.com and it’s one of the few that relies on yogurt as a key ingredient.
Yogurt does sometimes come with more carbs than you might want, but it is a fast and easy way to get the right texture in your smoothie. It can be a good source of nutrients too, along with probiotics.
Almond Butter Smoothie
This recipe highlights the flavor of almond butter more than most others on the list. There are some berries added as well, along with a chocolate sea salt powder. Even so, the almond butter remains significant.
Jen also mentions that you can add turmeric to the smoothie to increase its anti-inflammatory properties. The full recipe and additional details can be found at styleblueprint.com.
Almond Butter Acai Smoothie
While acai berries are popular for their potential health benefits, you don’t often find them on a keto diet. This recipe, from ketogenicdietmenuplan.com, is an exception to that rule.
It uses almond milk, almond butter, acai puree and various other ingredients to make a delicious acai smoothie that is still entirely keto friendly. In fact, the smoothie only contains six net grams of carbs per serving.
Cinnamon Almond Shake
This simple shake comes from alimillerrd.com and highlights the flavors of cinnamon and almond. The combination doesn’t make for an especially exciting shake, but that’s not a bad thing.
Sometimes subtle flavors are more appealing. While the shake is high in protein (29 grams per serving), it is surprisingly lower in fat (just 14 grams per serving). This nutrient balance makes the smoothie most relevant for times when you want to boost protein intake.
Low Carb Protein Shake
Despite its relatively light color, this shake is a chocolate and peanut butter recipe. It is also a particularly powerful meal replacement choice, as it is very high in fat and protein, while still containing hardly any carbs.
The recipe itself comes from tasteaholics.com, although it is also featured in the image. It’s still worth checking out the site to learn more about the smoothie and to find other keto recipes.
