Who doesn't love chocolate? Honestly, it's such an amazing flavor and a great pick-me-up. You don't need to cut chocolate out on a keto diet either. There are many different chocolatey keto recipes out there, in countless different styles.
In this post, we're focusing on keto chocolate smoothie recipes. These recipes don't just offer an amazing chocolate flavor, they also contain plenty of healthy fats and protein. As such, they're a good way to keep your macros in check. Many will keep you satisfied too and can be used as a meal replacement.
Keto Chocolate Smoothie Recipes
PS. While we’re on the topic of chocolate, check out these chocolate almond fat bomb recipes.
PPS. Keto blueberry smoothies are another sweet style to try out.
Low Carb Chocolate Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls can be even better than regular smoothies. They tend to have a thicker texture, giving you the chance to eat them with a spoon rather than drinking them. This can also make them seem more filling, so the style is a win-win.
This particular recipe comes from Kim at lowcarbmaven.com. Chocolate is the main flavor, but there are some other good ones included in the mix, including vanilla and berries.
Nootropic Berry Chocolate Protein Smoothie
Nootropics offer a way to boost cognition and energy. This recipe, from perfectketo.com, takes advantage of that idea while the smoothie still acts as a powerful source of antioxidants, protein and healthy fats.
With all of those benefits, you'd expect this smoothie to taste bad, but that's not the case at all. Instead, the drink is creamy, rich in chocolate and even has a slightly nutty undertone. You'll love it.
Rich Chocolate Smoothie
Speaking of rich chocolate smoothies, here's one from spinachtiger.com. This time it relies on avocado as one of the main ingredients. Avocado is such an important addition. The fruit makes your smoothie much thicker and more creamy. You often can't even taste the avocado, especially when there is chocolate in the mix.
As Angela points out, you can also add in a shot of coffee to the smoothie. This helps to step it up a level, giving you a great kick start to your morning.
Chocolate Orange Smoothie
The combination of chocolate and orange is amazing, but it isn't used nearly often enough. This recipe from wickedstuffed.com is a delightful exception, where the orange nicely contrasts against the rich chocolate flavor. There are even greens included to provide you with nutritional advantages.
Avocado Collagen Chocolate Smoothie
This is another recipe that uses avocado along with chocolate. There is also collagen in the mix, which your body uses for your skin and joints, along with many other areas. The post from ketovale.com provides various details about why collagen is important, along with information about a version that you can use.
Chocolate Pecan Shake
Emilie mentions that this chocolate pecan shake ends up tasting a lot like rocky road. That’s a fantastic flavor for a keto smoothie. It’s also a little more interesting than a shake that just tastes like chocolate. The recipe can be found at texasgranolagirl.com. One cool feature is that the smoothie contains roughly 20 grams of fat per serving. This should make the smoothie very satisfying.
Chocolate Coconut Smoothie
Some flavors just combine perfectly with one another. Chocolate and coconut are great examples. This recipe takes advantage of both of them, offering you a tasty smoothie that is still easy to prepare. The smoothie comes from Jo at ketodietapp.com. Many of the ingredients also offer health benefits, making this a particularly good smoothie to try.
Chocolate Smarter Smoothie
This smoothie really is designed with chocolate lovers in mind. It is packed full of flavor and even tastes like dessert, despite the fact that it is a low carb recipe.

Mellissa from ibreatheimhungry.com offers this unusual recipe for you to try. It relies on sunflower butter, which isn't an extremely common ingredient choice. This provides a little sweetness to the mix, as does the coconut milk. The end result is a mild chocolatey smoothie that makes an ideal breakfast choice.

This recipe from Maya at wholesomeyum.com manages to be simple and amazing at the same time. The first advantage is the flavor combination. Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter? Okay, I know some people won't, but the flavors do remain extremely popular.
The recipe also uses only five ingredients. This makes it very easy to prepare. You don't need to do a large shop to get the ingredients. You probably have most of them at home already.

Chocolate And Avocado Keto Shake
Gerri from myketokitchen.com follows a familiar style, chocolate and avocado. This combination of flavors and textures does always work well. In this case, it creates a thick shake that is also creamy. The inclusion of chia seed also alters the texture somewhat. Gerri mentions that you can leave the shake in the fridge for longer to take advantage of the gelatinous nature of chia seeds and create an even thicker shake.
Cinnamon Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie

Bulletproof Breakfast Chocolate Milkshake
This chocolate shake takes its inspiration from Bulletproof coffee. That coffee offers a powerful boost of energy for keto dieters, while also making it easier to get into ketosis and stay there.
This version comes from gnom-gnom.com and it only follows some of the official bulletproof approaches. For example, MCT oil is included as an optional ingredient, rather than an essential one. Additionally, this recipe doesn't include coffee. Even with these aspects, the milkshake is still great for nutrition.

If you’re a chocolate lover, this is the shake for you. It comes from tasty-yummies.com and looks like a rich and decadent treat that you might buy. Despite this, it is a very healthy recipe, one that offers plenty of nutrients and barely any sugar. Like most chocolate and avocado drinks, you’re only going to taste the chocolate.
