Avocado is one of the most popular keto ingredients – for some very good reasons. The fruit is packed full of healthy fats while being very low in carbs. It also tastes amazing and adds extra flavor to many recipes. If all of that weren’t enough, there’s the texture of avocado too. This can add extra creaminess to various meals, creating treats that you wouldn’t be able to make otherwise..
These areas are all important for today's keto avocado smoothie recipes list. Avocado acts as a powerful ingredient for these smoothies, providing a creamy texture and healthy fats. Some of the recipes highlight the flavor of avocado, while others mask it entirely. As such, there'll be some recipes for everyone, regardless of whether you love or hate the taste of avocados.
Keto Avocado Smoothie Recipes
PS. Check out our list of keto avocado recipes for even more fantastic options that feature avocado.
PPS. There are plenty of alternative smoothie flavors too, like chocolate, pumpkin and coconut.
Let's start off with something simple, this avocado smoothie from brokefoodies.com. The smoothie isn't just keto-friendly. It's also suitable for vegans and anyone on a dairy free diet. Idriss also offers some cool information about using kale in a smoothie effectively, without worrying about it going off.
Chocolate Smoothie With Collagen
This recipe, from perfectketo.com, takes advantage of collagen (along with other healthy components). Don’t worry though, you’re not going to taste the collagen. Instead, it is included for the potential health benefits that it offers. The smoothie is also packed with protein. This helps to keep you satisfied. It also makes the drink an ideal choice for breakfast or for any time when you’re feeling hungry.
Keto Green Smoothie
I found this green smoothie recipe at coolmomlife.com and it is another interesting one to try out. Avocado isn't the only green ingredient in the mix either. The smoothie also features kale and spinach. Both of these leafy greens are packed full of nutrients. By including avocado in the mix, Katya helps ensure that this smoothie tastes better than most other green smoothies.
Avocado Collagen Chocolate Smoothie
This is another cool recipe if you want health benefits from your smoothie. The recipe comes from ketovale.com and includes collagen as an ingredient. Don't worry if you haven't tried collagen before, it doesn't have a significant flavor. Instead, this smoothie ends up mostly tasting like chocolate, which is always a fantastic outcome. Once again, the avocado adds to the creaminess of the smoothie.
Avocado Smoothie With Cilantro And Mint
Here's a good recipe if you want a less common flavor profile. It comes from lowcarbmaven.com and takes advantage of mint and cilantro, along with avocado. I love this choice of ingredients, simply because it is different. The combination also creates a smoothie that is both refreshing and satisfying.
Keto Green Smoothie
This recipe, from greenhealthycooking.com, is more complex than it first appears. You're not just getting a green smoothie recipe with avocado. There are various additions that help to create a more interesting and unusual balance of flavors.
One thing to mention is that it might take a little to enjoy the flavor. Lorena mentioned that it took all of her family members (herself included) around three sips to actually enjoy the smoothie. So, give yourself enough time before you decide whether you like the taste.
Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie
Who doesn't love mint chocolate chip? Those ingredients just work so well together. This recipe from ketointhecity.com features both of them, while also including avocado in the mix. In this case, avocado isn't really added because of its flavor. It is chosen for the texture that it offers. It's unlikely that you'll even taste the avocado in the finished recipe. This isn’t a bad thing though. After all, why mess with the mint chocolate chip flavor?
Raspberry Avocado Smoothie
Here's another flavor to try – raspberry. This recipe comes from lowcarbyum.com and it's another case where the avocado flavor isn't obvious at all. Lisa even suggests that you could serve it to kids and they would never realize that there is avocado present.
Keto Avocado Smoothie
This avocado smoothie recipe comes from fatforweightloss.com.au. There are two versions of the smoothie that you can choose from. The difference is just whether or not you include cocoa powder. The cocoa powder adds in a chocolaty flavor, which is simply fantastic. If you skip it, the smoothie has a stronger avocado taste. Either style can work well, so you can choose based on personal preferences.
Green Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are a popular alternative to conventional smoothies. The style means that you're eating the smoothie, rather than drinking it. While the smoothie might taste the same either way, the difference in eating style can keep you more satisfied. The bowls are also a good chance to play around with toppings.
This version comes from myketokitchen.com. It uses avocado and coconut yogurt to create much of the thickness. There are plenty of other great ingredients included too.
Low Carb Easter Smoothie
Martina from ketodietapp.com always produces amazing recipes and this Easter smoothie is no exception. The drink is slightly unusual, as it is a green smoothie but doesn't contain any vegetables. There are some less common ingredients included in the mix too. They should give the smoothie a particularly good flavor.
Strawberry Avocado Keto Smoothie
This strawberry smoothie comes from Maya at wholesomeyum.com. It has a fantastic flavor profile, while requiring barely any ingredients. Seriously, there are only four ingredients in the entire recipe. This makes it easy to create the smoothie whenever you feel like it.
Chocolate Avocado Raspberry Smoothie
While we're on the topic of berries, here's a chocolate, avocado and raspberry version. As you can probably guess, the chocolate and raspberry flavors will be dominant in the finished drink (rather than the avocado). The avocado is mostly there for the healthy fats and the creamy texture that it provides.
The recipe itself can be found over at alldayidreamaboutfood.com. You'll find plenty of other amazing recipes on the site too.
Avocado Apple Coconut Smoothie
Here's an unexpected smoothie addition – apple. Seriously, apple isn't used in many smoothie recipes, particularly not a keto recipe. Still, as Louise from ketosummit.com shows, you can have apple in a smoothie if the combination of ingredients is right.
Louise also provides details about changes that you can make to the recipe. Some of these change the flavor profile, while others target the texture of the smoothie.
Chai Pumpkin Keto Smoothie
This smoothie recipe from healthfulpursuit.com feels like it would be a good choice for Fall – simply because of the flavors that are used. Of course, it would taste just as good at another time of the year. The flavors are a good reason to try the smoothie out. They're simply different than normal and would taste fantastic.
Another advantage is the way that this smoothie suits many different eating styles. It is free from eggs, dairy, gluten and nuts. It is also vegan and paleo friendly.
Paleo, Vegan And Keto Shamrock Shake
It's easy to see that this recipe was designed with St. Patrick's Day in mind. Paola presents it as an alternative to the shake from McDonald's. The McDonald's version is packed full of sugar, not to mention artificial ingredients.
The version from gnom-gnom.com is a much healthier option. It has a great balance of flavors and textures, while focusing entirely on natural ingredients. Try it out. You won't be disappointed.
Key Lime Pie Smoothie
Key lime is such a fun flavor and this recipe is a perfect way to include it on a keto, paleo and/or vegan diet. The smoothie comes from cookeatpaleo.com and doesn’t require a large number of ingredients. The reliance on coconut milk helps to add to the overall flavor. You’re also making three servings with this recipe. That’s perfect if you’re preparing breakfast for more than just yourself.
Keto Flu Smoothie
This smoothie is named after the keto flu, which you often experience when first hitting ketosis. The keto flu isn’t fun and recipes like this one could decrease the severity or even help you avoid it entirely. For one thing, the smoothie is packed with nutrients. It also contains pink Himalayan salt. While the salt might sound like an odd addition, increasing your sodium intake is vitally important early on in a keto diet.
It’s also worth mentioning that avocado is just one of many ingredients here. As a result, the avocado flavor isn’t extremely strong. That might be a good thing if you want the nutrients but not the flavor. Regardless, you can find the recipe over at howtothisandthat.com.
Super Delicious Green Matcha Smoothie
Matcha is often promoted as a healthy ingredient, so why not add it to a smoothie? For that matter, this recipe provides you with plenty of healthy ingredients, including matcha, avocado, coconut oil and spinach. You can check out the full recipe at epicmatcha.com. While the recipe is designed to use the matcha powder from that brand, you could easily choose a different product instead.
Keto Avocado Matcha Smoothie
Here’s another recipe that takes advantage of matcha. This one comes from grassfedgirl.com and heavily relies on avocado. There are some interesting ingredients in the mix too, like collagen and even eggs (although you can leave those out if you want to). The end result is a smoothie that looks good and tastes fantastic. Just be aware that it is a little higher in sugar than many other keto smoothies.
Chocolate Avocado Shake
Take a look at this drink. It ends up looking like a decadent dessert, but it’s not at all. It’s another keto shake, one that is low in carbs and is a good source of fat. The recipe comes from tasty-yummies.com (which is a seriously cool site name). Beth also provides information about changes that you can make to alter the nutrition or the consistency of the finished shake.
There’s just one other thing to consider – the nutritional data. Details on nutrition aren’t provided, so it isn’t clear how many grams of carbs or fat you get per serving. You’d need to plug the ingredients into a nutrition calculator to find out that information.
Mango Avocado Smoothie
Here’s a great flavor combination to consider – mango and avocado. The finished drink looks stunning and very summery. It is also a simple smoothie to make. You just need five ingredients and one of those is water. The recipe comes from 5minutelife.me, so you can check the full thing out there.
You might notice one odd thing if you look at the nutrition facts. The smoothie shows up as having a high amount of sugar. That’s because the author used the wrong sweetener in the calculation. If you work out the nutrition details yourself, you’ll find that there aren’t many net carbs per serving.
Avocado Strawberry Keto Smoothie
Here’s another interesting set of flavors. This time the smoothie contains avocado, strawberry and mint. It’s a fun idea, especially as strawberries taste great, while avocado makes the smoothie creamy. Thom also mentions that you can swap out the strawberries for whatever fruit you prefer. Just make sure you adjust the carb calculation accordingly. You can find the recipe at guygoneketo.com.
This recipe, from styleblueprint.com, features berries, avocados and greens. The finished smoothie takes on flavors from all of these aspects, rather than having a single dominant flavor. That’s not a bad thing. Nuanced smoothies like this can be very enjoyable to drink. You can also adjust the proportions if you want one flavor to shine.
Chocolate Avocado Smoothie
Just in case you need it, this recipe is another reminder of how well chocolate and avocado work together. In smoothies like this, chocolate becomes the dominant flavor, while the avocado simply adds to the creaminess. The style is perfect for people who don’t like the taste of avocado. It also gives you a way to hide healthy ingredients from kids.
The recipe itself comes from tastefulketo.com. It isn’t as simple as you might expect either. Instead, there are some interesting ingredients that add some depth to the flavor profile.
Avocado Green Smoothie
If you want an exceptionally healthy smoothie, this recipe from paleoleap.com could be the perfect choice. It includes plenty of veggies, which all offer nutritional benefits. Despite this, the drink still ends up tasting good. That’s because the ingredients are carefully chosen to provide a good balance. Besides, there’s something very appealing about drinking something that is this good for you.
Avocado And Almond Smoothie
This recipe is featured at stepawayfromthecarbs.com. It’s a relatively simple recipe, with just four ingredients. The smoothie is also low in carbs, with just five grams of net carbs per serving. Another cool thing is the combination of avocado and almonds. The almond flavor would be relatively subtle, allowing the taste of the avocado to shine through.,
Vanilla Almond Protein Shake
Yuri from yurielkaim.com provides this recipe, which also features avocados and almonds. In this case, the avocado is mostly included for the creaminess that it adds, rather than the flavor. That pattern is fairly common and isn’t a bad thing at all. You can also add protein powder to the recipe to create a good meal replacement option.
