We tend to shove all kinds of ingredients in our smoothies, loading them up with greens like spinach and kale or other “healthy” veggies. However, the classic “base” that I’ve turned to time and time again is always banana. But not for this keto strawberry smoothie without a banana – this time, we’re making an avocado smoothie!

This is one of those low-carb smoothies full of incredible flavor and packed with nutrients, minerals, and vitamins that can boost your health. Best of all, you can make this treat using just 3 ingredients. If you’re on the keto diet and want something tasty for breakfast or as a snack, this is a great choice.

The keto strawberry avocado smoothie is perfect for those looking for a healthy low-carb smoothie pick-me-up. While it’s great to have for breakfast, you can drink it whenever you’re in the mood for a refreshing beverage loaded with healthy ingredients, including avocado and fresh, ripe strawberries.

Most people assume that vegan, gluten-free smoothies need bananas to make them thick and creamy. However, this isn’t the case – just look at this delicious banana-free recipe. The creaminess of the avocado enhances the taste and texture of this smoothie, making it an excellent keto-friendly choice for anyone! Both kids and adults would love the best keto smoothie recipe.

The Keto Strawberry Smoothie Ingredients

Before you can prepare such a simple yet delicious smoothie, you’ll need to make sure you have the right ingredients.

  • Frozen strawberries: I use frozen halved strawberries that I can easily grab and chuck into my blender from the freezer. You could also use a combination of berries for a change in flavor.
  • Avocado: You can use fresh or frozen avocado for the smoothie. If it’s frozen, it’s going to make the smoothie even colder and creamier.
  • Milk: You can use your favorite dairy or dairy-free milk of choice. I like to use almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk. You could also substitute this for coconut water if preferred.
  • Stevia: Although it’s optional, stevia adds a touch of sweetness to this smoothie while remaining keto-friendly and refined sugar-free.

Strawberry Avocado Keto Smoothie Variations

  • Yogurt or cream: adding yogurt is a great way to add back in some of the creaminess that bananas usually provide. Unsweetened Greek yogurt will also up the protein content – though you can use coconut yogurt or almond yogurt for a vegan option.
  • Vanilla: add a dash of vanilla extract for a more dessert-like flavor.
  • Nut/seed butter: for extra flavor, protein, healthy fats (to keep you fuller for longer), and creaminess, you could add 1-2 Tbsp of your favorite nut or seed butter. I suggest using almond butter or sunflower seeds butter for a nut-free version.
  • Seeds: Another easy way to boost protein is with 1 tbsp of chia seeds, flax, or hemp seeds. They’ll also provide healthy fats and omega fatty acids.
  • Ice: If you use fresh strawberries instead of frozen, then add some ice to make this keto breakfast colder.

How to Make a Strawberry Keto Smoothie?

Add all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend. You can blend for as long as you’d like depending on how thick of a smoothie you’d like to have.

If you’d like to make a smoothie bowl instead of a beverage, you can keep it more on the chunky side. If not, consider blending it finely to have a smooth drink to enjoy.

Steps for blending Keto Strawberry Smoothie

Pour into a glass or jar and add your favorite toppings to complete this smoothie and add more flavor to it. I like to add just a few strawberry slices – this is the best way to make a strawberry avocado smoothie low carb.

How to Serve this Smoothie?

Serve this smoothie in a stemless glass with a metal straw and some strawberry slices as a sweet garnish. If you’re on the go, you can pour the smoothie right into a reusable water bottle or beverage container.

Don’t forget to add the extras to the top of your smoothie, such as shredded coconut or even a slight chocolate drizzle for added flavor. The extras do make a difference in this strawberry keto smoothie.

How to Make Ahead and Store?

How to make it ahead: If you’re planning to make this smoothie in advance, follow the instructions to make it. Then pour the beverage into an airtight container with a lid. Place it in the fridge or freezer until you’re ready to drink the keto strawberry smoothie.

Store: It’s important to keep the smoothie cold so that it’ll stay fresh. Put it in a beverage container or airtight container with a tight lid and place it in your fridge until you’re ready to serve it. It’s best to enjoy the prepared smoothie within 1-2 days.

Freeze: If you’d like to freeze the smoothie, you can pour it into a container and place it in the freezer. Or you can freeze your ingredients so that they’re cold and ready to toss into the blender when you’re in the mood for this keto strawberry avocado smoothie.

  1. Hi I love your channel! Any possibility of you coming to the US to do workshops? When I make this receipe, the ingredients come out as liquid. Any tricks to making your yogurt look so smooth?

    1. I’d love to, if the demand were high enough! I’ll keep it in mind for next year 😀 Hmm, the frozen ingredients really are the key to a thick, creamy smoothie bowl. If you’re wanting to have it really thick then I’d start by blending the frozen ingredients but half of the milk to begin with and then adding more milk, as needed. The yogurt is completely optional so you may want to omit this altogether.
