Peanut butter is always a popular ingredient, partly because of how it tastes (peanut butter and chocolate anyone?). Peanut butter combines well with many other flavors too and most people already have some in the cupboard.
So, why not use it to make a smoothie?
Natural peanut butter is also a powerful choice on a keto diet. It is a key source of healthy fats and fiber, while also offering a moderate amount of protein. These aspects all work well for smoothies.
As such, keto peanut butter smoothie recipes are often satisfying. Some can even act as meal replacement shakes. Check out this selection to find some new favorites.
Keto Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipes
PS. Chocolate smoothies are another popular choice that simply taste amazing. There are plenty of them to try out too.
PPS. You might also consider almond butter smoothies. Some of these highlight the flavor of the almond butter, while others focus more on the nutritional value.
Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
The topping on this smoothie is simply amazing. The smoothie itself looks pretty good too. You can find the recipe at wholesomeyum.com and it is one of many amazing recipes on that site.
While we're talking about the smoothie, the nutritional profile is worth mentioning. Maya calls this a healthy smoothie, which is accurate, as the smoothie acts as a fat bomb.
Still, there aren't many ingredients that will boost your health in the mix. This means that the smoothie is best considered a good addition to a diet that’s already healthy.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Here's another example of the classic chocolate and peanut butter combination. This version comes from Arman at thebigmansworld.com. The smoothie isn't just keto friendly either. It is suitable for vegan, paleo and gluten free dieters too.
Arman does provide nutrition information for the recipe. Just be aware that this is a rough guide only. There are some potential variations to the smoothie, such as the type of milk that you use. Any such variation will change the final nutrient balance.
Peanut Butter Smoothie With Almond Milk
This smoothie recipe, from foodfaithfitness.com, is another version to consider. It does still feature cocoa, but the chocolate flavor won't be as intense as with some of the other recipes.
The smoothie is especially good if you want a meal replacement option, as it contains 10.2 grams of protein per serving. The fat content is decent as well.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
Amanda at theskinnyfork.com offers this shake recipe for you to try. The recipe's biggest advantage is its simplicity. You're only using four different ingredients, one of which is ice.
The protein and fat content is lower per serving than most other examples, but so is the carb content. This approach could be perfect for people who want to cut their calorie intake down.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Milkshake
This smoothie from lowcarbyum.com looks like a milkshake that you might have purchased as a kid. Despite this, the recipe is a very healthy one.
It doesn’t include any added sugar at all, which helps the chocolate and peanut butter flavors to shine through strongly. Lisa suggests using stevia drops to provide some sweetness, but you can use another low carb sweetener if you want to.
Peanut Butter Shake
The presentation of this recipe is one of its most stunning features. Somehow the fact that you can see peanut butter against the glass makes all of the difference to how the smoothie looks.
The cacao nibs on the top don’t hurt either. The recipe comes from tastefulketo.com and it should taste just as decadent as it looks. You have plenty of choices too, like the chance to decide whether you use heavy cream or coconut milk.
Meal Replacement Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
Meal replacement shakes are perfect if you want breakfast in a hurry or simply don’t know what to eat. This recipe was designed with that use in mind, so it is packed with protein.
It also takes a slightly unusual approach. The instructions on ketoconnect.net have you making a powder mix first. This mix is then used to make your protein shake and pancakes. While you could skip the pancakes, they’re worth trying out at least once.
Peanut Butter Milkshake
This peanut butter shake comes from the site lowcarbalpha.com and it looks a little different than many of the others. That’s because there isn’t any chocolate in this recipe – just peanut butter.
The approach makes the peanut butter flavor much more evident. It’s also simply a nice change from chocolate and peanut butter flavored shakes.
Breakfast Keto Smoothie
Here’s a recipe that works well as a fat bomb and could be an interesting breakfast choice as well. It contains almost 60 grams of fat per serving, along with six grams of protein and just six grams of net carbs.
While the protein content is a little low for the shake to act as a meal replacement, you might find that the fat content makes up for this.
Another interesting part is the combination of ingredients. This recipe includes avocado, which provides extra creaminess. Idriss (from brookefoodies.com) doesn’t add any ice in, as he was making the smoothie in the winter, but you could easily add some ice cubes if you wanted to.
Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie – No Sugar Added
With around 33 grams of protein in a serving, this smoothie would be a seriously satisfying drink. That being said, the combination of macros is a little unusual for keto, as the fat content is pretty low (just 11 grams per serving).
This seems to be partly because Brenda uses low fat cottage cheese rather than full fat. The sugar content is also relatively high, leading to a net carb content of nine grams per serving.
Even with the limitations, it could be an enjoyable smoothie to try out. You can find it at sugarfreemom.com.
Easy Keto Peanut Butter Milkshake
While this peanut butter milkshake itself looks pretty typical, Uliana has done an amazing job with the presentation, creating something that just looks amazing. The recipe itself comes from the site hungryforinspiration.com.
Uliana goes the extra mile too and provides you with links to specific products that you can use to make the smoothie. You don’t have to stick to those recommendations, but some people might find them useful.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Wendy’s Frosty
The most unusual thing about this recipe is that it ends up having the texture of a Wendy’s Frosty. This isn’t something that you normally see, as most smoothies are more liquidy.
Unlike a Frosty from Wendy’s, the drink from ketofarms.com isn’t packed with artificial ingredients. In fact, there are just five different ingredients included, one of which is the peanut butter.
The steps for making the smoothie are different than most other recipes and you’ll need to check out the site to learn more about these.
Protein Packed Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
With close to 30 grams of protein per serving, it’s easy to see why Emily says that this smoothie is protein packed. As is often the case, much of that protein comes from protein powder. You can find all of the details at halfscratched.com.
Most of the recipe is pretty typical, but there is one unusual feature. This is the way that the smoothie relies on peanut butter powder rather than peanut butter.
The powder is useful for imparting the peanut butter flavor without the calories from peanut butter. While the powder has its advantages, it isn’t normally used on a keto diet. After all, peanut butter isn’t high in carbs.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
This recipe comes from Nick at simplefunketo.com. He mentions that it’s a good choice if you want a shake that has a hint of peanut butter.
This should mean that the peanut butter flavor isn’t too overwhelming. You could always add in some more peanut butter if the current level is a bit too subtle.
The drink ends up containing six net grams of carbs per serving, so it should easily fit within your carb intake for the day.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Smoothie
Here’s another chocolate and peanut butter version to try. This one is from the site ketoconnection.com.au. The shake works especially well if you want something filling.
It contains more than 40 grams of fat and 16 grams of protein. Despite this, there are less than seven grams of net carbs present. Not only is macro balance appealing, but it also perfectly fits in your desired ratios for keto.
Caramel And Peanut Butter Keto Shake
I love the way that this shake has a different flavor combination than normal. The caramel would help to enhance the peanut butter, without overpowering it.
You could add in some cocoa too if you feel like it, although there isn’t any included in the recipe as written.
This is another shake that’s good for fat and protein, with 44 grams of fat and 20 grams of protein per serving. You can find more details at havebutterwilltravel.com.
Keto Avocado Smoothie – Peanut Butter And Collagen
Here’s an unusual flavor combination to consider. The recipe comes from the site myketokitchen.com and is mostly an avocado smoothie.
The addition of peanut butter makes the flavor more interesting again, as do some of the other ingredients. This smoothie is especially good if your daily carb intake is very limited – it only contains one net gram of carbs per serving.
Each serving also contains 20 grams of protein and 28 grams of fat.
Creamy Dreamy PB&J Smoothie
This recipe is a fun variation on the idea of a peanut butter smoothie. It comes from perfectketo.com and uses strawberries to create a flavor that is similar to peanut butter and jelly.
The style is much more interesting than the typical chocolate and peanut butter flavor combination. You can also use frozen strawberries to make the smoothie thicker overall.
This is also a very good smoothie for carbs, with just five net grams of carbs per serving.
Low Carb Peanut Butter Milkshake
Don’t you just love the appearance of this shake? Carine has done a fantastic job of making it look amazing, without adding many extra carbs. You don’t have to follow those steps, of course, you could just stick to the shake itself.
The recipe comes from sweetashoney.co and it uses some ingredients that you might not expect. I’m not going to spoil the surprise, but you’ll find that the smoothie is a little different than the others on this list.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Here is a simple peanut butter smoothie to try out. It comes from the site wickedstuffed.com and only includes five ingredients (one of which is the ice).
You’re getting 33 grams of protein and 24 grams of fat per serving, making this one of the easiest breakfast alternatives that you will ever find.
Peanut Butter Caramel Milkshake
This recipe, from ruled.me, is a second example of combining caramel and peanut butter in a single smoothie.
There is another interesting addition too – MCT oil. This type of oil is often used on a keto diet, as it can help to get you into ketosis. It also simply acts as a source of healthy fats.
Keto Chocolate Shake
While this recipe says that you’re making a Keto Chocolate Shake, the end result is much thicker than most other shakes out there. You actually end up with something that’s pretty similar to a Frosty, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
The recipe can be made with peanut butter or almond butter, depending on your preference. Either choice creates a fantastic combination of flavors and a tasty drink overall.
Peanut Butter And Jelly Smoothie
At first glance, this recipe looks like a simple strawberry smoothie, but don’t be fooled. The inclusion of peanut butter powder means that you get the flavor of peanut butter and some of the nutritional benefits.
The choice of ingredients makes the final shake taste a lot like peanut butter and jelly. You can find the full recipe at peaceloveandlowcarb.com.
While the recipe would taste great, it’s best to consider it as a treat, rather than a way to boost your fat intake. This is because the macro balance in the smoothie is a little unusual, with six net grams of carbs per serving and only five grams of fat.
Ketogenic Peanut Butter Milkshake
This recipe, from cookingispun.com, is a versatile option. Kelsey mentions that you can use any type of milk you want, including almond milk, heavy cream or whole milk.
You also get to choose the amount of sweetener. This allows you to make the shake as sweet as you want it to be. You can use any type of nut butter as well. Just be aware that the macro profile will change based on the specific ingredients that you include.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
This final recipe comes from the site savorytooth.com. Details are included for two ways to create the shake. One relies on a blender, while the other one doesn’t.
While the recipe does look typical, Julia includes an interesting addition that should make this shake taste a little bit like a cheesecake. She also mentions that you can add coffee to turn this into a mocha shake. You might do so instead of the peanut butter or as well as it.
