You'll often find coconut milk featured in keto recipes (and even in some cocktails!). The plant-based milk is a healthy choice, one that is naturally low in carbs. You don't need to be on a vegan or a dairy free diet either. Coconut milk is still a useful ingredient even if you drink cow's milk regularly.
Smoothies are a fantastic way to take advantage of coconut milk. They're also perfect for a keto diet. They can be a good way to increase your nutrient intake and get extra protein into your diet. This idea is perfect for weight loss and for health.
The keto coconut milk smoothie recipes in this post include a variety of different styles and flavors. They come from some of the most amazing keto authors online. Take a look to find some new drinks and plenty of inspiration.
Keto Coconut Milk Smoothie Recipes
PS. Coconut lovers can also check out our list of coconut smoothies. These tend to highlight the flavor of coconut much more strongly.
PPS. If you want more variety, you could always try almond milk smoothies. Most of the time you’d be able to swap the milk to coconut milk without changing the smoothie too much.
Avocado Smoothie With Coconut Milk, Ginger And Turmeric
I love the combination of ingredients in this recipe from lowcarbmaven.com. Both ginger and turmeric have been linked to health benefits, including the ability to decrease inflammation.
You've also got the coconut milk and avocado as sources of healthy fats. The smoothie isn't just good for you – it will taste amazing too.
Key Lime Pie Smoothie
Key lime in a smoothie – doesn't that just sound amazing? This particular recipe comes from tessadomesticdiva.com and it is every bit as good as the name suggests.
It is also a particularly healthy smoothie, containing a range of beneficial ingredients and 12 grams of protein per serving. This makes it ideal as a meal replacement option.
Keto Berry Smoothie
Berries do contain sugar, but a berry smoothie like this one is still entirely possible on a keto diet. Aaron hosts this recipe over at fatforweightloss.com.au and he showcases how well berries can work in a keto smoothie.
One of the best things about it is that the recipe is simple. You just need four ingredients. The smoothie can even be made without any dairy.
Breakfast Keto Smoothie
This vegan smoothie recipe comes from brokefoodies.com. It's an impressive choice, with 38 grams of fat per serving, along with eight grams of protein. The chocolate flavor of the smoothie would make it a perfect choice for picky eaters (or chocoholics!).
Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie
This smoothie, from ketointhecity.com, offers a fantastic flavor combination for you to try. Chocolate and mint do always work well together and the ingredients are even better in a smoothie.
The only limitation is that Jen doesn't clearly provide the nutritional information for the drink. You'll need to calculate this yourself.
Blueberry Avocado Ketogenic Smoothie
There are many blueberry avocado smoothies out there, but this is one of the few that shows the avocado in the finished smoothie color. This style should also mean that the avocado flavor is more noticeable than you might expect.
With six grams of net carbs, this recipe really is a perfect keto choice. You can find all the details on the site primaledgehealth.com.
Frozen Keto Berry Shake
This smoothie looks like a guilty pleasure, but it's actually a healthy and tasty choice. The recipe comes from ketodietapp.com and only requires a handful of ingredients. Martina also highlights a few additions that you can use if you want to.
Cinnamon Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie
I love the way that this recipe is more than just a chocolate smoothie. The inclusion of cinnamon brings it to the next level, creating a drink that would be ideal at any time of the day.
The recipe comes from paleoflourish.com and is an easy one to follow. You can even print the recipe out, if you want to.
Turmeric Keto Smoothie
Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient, but it can be a little difficult to eat regularly. A recipe like this turmeric smoothie, from ieatketo.com, is the perfect way to take advantage of turmeric.
You'll probably find that you quickly grow to enjoy the taste of turmeric. The recipe also provides details about ways to change up the smoothie to create an even more interesting flavor balance.
Chai Pumpkin Keto Smoothie
Chai and pumpkin are both popular flavors in their own right, so why not combine them? That's precisely what Leanne from healthfulpursit.com does in this recipe.
It's a fantastic idea, as you're getting a smoothie that tastes very different than regular options. That's perfect for anyone who likes experimenting or is getting a little bored with chocolate smoothies.
Strawberry Avocado Smoothie
While the flavor combination of this smoothie isn't radical, it doesn't need to be either. Lisa (from lowcarbyum.com) takes full advantage of her ingredients, making certain that the finished smoothie tastes great.
There is even a video for anyone who prefers getting instructions that way.
Strawberry Sage Smoothie
Amanda from wickedstuffed.com offers this strawberry sage smoothie for you to try out. The inclusion of sage gives the smoothie an unusual flavor, one that you won't find elsewhere.
On a side note, this particular recipe is best considered a snack, rather than a meal replacement shake. Unlike some of the other smoothies on this list, this one only contains two grams of protein per serving.
Cucumber Spinach Smoothie
Here's a green smoothie recipe that you can try, which is featured at ruled.me The most unusual part is the inclusion of cucumber.
This isn't a common addition in green smoothies, but it probably should be. The cucumber helps to make the shake refreshing and takes some of the focus away from the spinach.
Key Lime Pie Smoothie
While this smoothie is green in color, it's an entirely different style than the previous example. As the name suggests, this is a key lime smoothie, which gives you a vibrant-tasting drink that isn't difficult to make.
An interesting feature is the sweetener. You can choose whatever sweetener you like. This type of versatility is nice, giving you the ability to select what you have at hand. The recipe itself comes from cookeatpaleo.com, so you can find all the details there.
Keto Avocado Matcha Smoothie
Speaking of green smoothies, here's a different style again. This one relies on matcha as a main ingredient, while avocado helps to create a creamy texture. The recipe comes from grassfedgirl.com.
It's worth checking out if you want a healthy drink, as there are a few interesting ingredient choices in the mix. This finished smoothie is even fairly high in protein, making it relevant as a meal replacement option.
Chocolate Avocado Shake
If you want something more decadent, check out this shake from Beth at tasty-yummies.com. The finished drink looks absolutely amazing.
It's also surprisingly healthy, with various beneficial ingredients. You can choose which sweetener you include and Beth lists a variety of options.
The one limitation is that you need to calculate the nutritional details yourself. This seems to because there are various options for which ingredients you use. The carb content may also change depending on the specific products that you end up selecting.
Avocado Strawberry Keto Smoothie
Thom from guygoneketo.com highlights this simple smoothie that you can try. It's a pretty powerful recipe too because you can substitute many of the ingredients to meet your own preferences. Of course, the smoothie looks fantastic as-is too.
This smoothie, from styleblueprint.com, has a different flavor combination again. It relies on berries and avocado, which combine surprisingly well.
The smoothie ends up being green, rather than taking on the color from the berries. This suggests that the drink will have a more nuanced berry flavor, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
Hibiscus Berry Smoothie
Hibiscus isn't a common ingredient in cooking or in smoothies. Yet, this recipe from tastefulketo.com uses hibiscus tea to create an interesting drink.
The smoothie also includes frozen berries, so don't worry if you're unsure about the hibiscus. More than anything, the ingredient helps to add a complexity to the flavor.
Lush Keto Chocolate Milkshake
This chocolate shake is a rich and uncomplicated recipe to try. It comes from the site ketofirst.com and is popular among readers. Sara includes information about a variety of extra ingredients that you can choose to create an even better flavor and nutrition profile.
Sunflower Butter And Cocoa Smoothie
This smoothie comes from Mellissa at ibreatheimhungry.com. The choice of flavors makes this recipe a little bit different than normal. The balance of ingredients is also interesting.
Unlike many other recipes, this smoothie only contains a little cocoa powder. This decision means that the flavors from the coconut milk and the sunflower seed butter shine through much more.
Coconut Vanilla Bean Shaken Hibiscus Iced Tea Latte
Speaking of unusual flavors, what about this smoothie recipe? It is from tasty-yummies.com and includes vanilla, coconut and hibiscus tea.
The tea makes the base of the smoothie and you end up with something that is pretty similar to an iced tea. Calling it a smoothie might seem like a bit of a stretch, but you would get a pretty typical smoothie if you blended the ice in rather than pouring the drink over ice.
Besides, who says that smoothies always need to be the same?
Bulletproof Breakfast Chocolate Milkshake
This smoothie is designed with breakfast in mind. It comes from the site gnom-gnom.com and is completely dairy free.
Calling the recipe a Bulletproof milkshake is a reference to Bulletproof coffee, which many keto dieters drink first thing in the morning. Two key ingredients in the coffee are butter/ghee and MCT oil.
Oddly, this particular smoothie only includes MCT oil as an optional ingredient and doesn’t feature butter or ghee at all. Still, it should taste fantastic.
Here’s a smoothie that highlights the flavor of coconut, rather than trying to hide it. The recipe comes from tastefulketo.com and includes information about various added flavor ingredients that you can use.
The shake is one of the few that uses a combination of almond milk and coconut milk. This can be frustrating if you only keep coconut milk in the house. Still, combining the two types of milk can create an interesting balance of flavors.
Coconut Cocoa Macadamia Smoothie
This recipe from djfoodie.com and it offers another interesting combination of flavors. This time the main ingredients are macadamia nuts and cocoa powder, along with the coconut milk.
The quantities of each ingredient mean that you get a nice balance of flavors, rather than the cocoa overwhelming the others.
The smoothie contains around eight net grams of carbs. That’s pretty good for how large it is. Smoothie recipes often have much smaller serving sizes.
Cinnamon Coconut Smoothie
I love that this recipe comes from a site called sarcasticparent.com. That’s such a fun site name and Karen’s writing style is a joy to read too.
Her recipe has a strong coconut flavor that is complemented by the cinnamon. The combination of flavors would be perfect for anyone who loves coconut.
Japanese Style Strawberry Milk Smoothie
This recipe focuses on the idea of Japanese style strawberry milk. The term refers to the flavor that you’d find in Japan.
As the post highlights, that version of strawberry milk tends to have a milder flavor, one that can taste a bit more like strawberries than some of the variations here. The smoothie is easy to prepare, as it just requires four ingredients.
You end up with a drink that has around three net grams of carbs, making this a good smoothie for a snack. The full details can be found at lowcarbinbasian.com.
Five Minute Mocha Smoothie
Mocha is always a popular smoothie flavor. Mocha smoothies are a great way to get your coffee hit along with breakfast first thing in the morning.
This version comes from simplysohealthy.com. It’s one of those unusual recipes that combines coconut milk and almond milk.
The protein content isn’t very high, so this wouldn’t be a good meal replacement choice. Even so, the shake could be a fun addition to your breakfast or perhaps a snack during the day.
Lemon Coconut Smoothie
This smoothie comes from Tamar at triholisticnutrition.com. The lemon and coconut mean that the recipe has an unusual combination of flavors.
As the image illustrates, the smoothie also uses spinach. This gives it a powerful nutrition hit, as do some of the other ingredients.
The only limitation is that there are no nutritional details included with the recipe. This isn’t such a bad thing though, as it’s best to calculate the carbs yourself even when the information is included.
Smoothie Bowl With Blueberries, Marine Collagen And MCTs
Here is one of the most unusual and beautiful smoothies that you’ll ever see. It comes from the site naturalforce.com and includes a variety of interesting ingredients.
The MCTs and marine collagen are both included as ways to improve your health. Other ingredients provide extra nutrition or add to the overall flavor.
While the style looks amazing, you may want to double check the nutritional details for yourself. The site calls this a keto smoothie and also says that it has 20 grams of net carbs (which certainly isn’t keto friendly!).
That carb count seems high for the ingredients used, so it may be inaccurate.
Caramel And Peanut Butter Shake
The combination of caramel and peanut butter is an unusual choice, but it seems to work well in this smoothie from havebutterwilltravel.com. The recipe is a surprisingly simple one to make and doesn’t use many ingredients at all.
While the finished drink does contain around nine net grams of carbs per serving, you’re also getting almost 45 grams of fat and 20 grams of protein for that same serving.
This makes the shake a great meal replacement choice. You could also just have half a serving if the carb content is too high.
Chocolate Low Carb Smoothie
I love the texture of this chocolate low carb smoothie. This is exactly how smoothies should be, regardless of whether you’re on the keto diet or not.
The underlying recipe comes from Sara at liveeatlearn.com. It’s an amazing recipe for anyone who loves chocolate.
You also get to choose the type of nut butter you use and the sweetener. This gives you some flexibility to make the smoothie your own.
Keto Coconut Smoothie
This is another recipe that chooses to highlight the flavor of coconut. It comes from the site vigoritout.com.
Allie’s post on the site talks about why this style of smoothie is so important when you’re on a keto diet. This type of information can often be useful, especially if you haven’t been following the diet for long.
