Jump to RecipePrint Recipe

When you’re following a low-carb diet of any kind, it’s nice to change things up every now and then. When we keto cycle, we love having some good keto smoothies, which we load with healthy fats and other supplements we might be adding to improve our health in other areas. This bad boy, basic recipe no frills added, is guaranteed to keep you full and happy. If you’re going out on keto, it’s really good to have a smoothie in your bag just in case you get the munchies while you’re out.

What’s keto you say?

Breakfast Keto Smoothie - Vegan Recipe (1)

WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?

The ketogenic diet is high fat, low carb (and moderate protein) diet where you get most of your calories from fatty foods and supplement the rest with a healthy amount of protein and a minimal amount of carbs. There are plenty of variations of keto, but at the end of the day this is what’s generally accepted as dogma in keto:

No sugar.

What makes this a good breakfast smoothie?

When you are on a keto diet, you want to get most of the carbs out of your way and lots of healthy fats and proteins in your system. There is no better time to do it than in the morning.

Because I do intermittentfasting, which means I only eat between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. (for a total of 8 hours), I want my breakfast to have all the nutrients that I need to go on with my day. But as you know, life does not wait, and sometimes you find yourself running out of time. This is when this keto smoothie comes in handy.

Nutritional information for one Portion (Makes 2)

  • Fat: 58g
  • Carbs: 6g (Net carbs)
  • Protein: 6g

The high fat content is due to the fact that I used full fat coconut milk.

Can I be on a Keto diet and remain Vegan?

It is definitely possible, as there is a great amount of plant-basedfats out there. However, it will be a difficult challenge, to say the least.

For most of my life, I have followed a Mediterraneandiet (mostly of veggies, good amount of fish and poultry and limited amounts of meat), which made the keto diet a little daunting for me. I simply did not want to eat obsceneamounts of meat and simply give up on veggies.

So I decided that a good chunk of my calories will come from healthy fats (Avocado, Coconut oil, Coconut Cream, Nut Butter, Raw Cacao, Salmon, Sardines etc.). I kept on eating a high amount of vegetables, except that this time I would only eat low carb vegetables, which means lots of leafy greens, cauliflower, broccoli, spaghetti squash, Eggplant, Zucchini, Asparagus, Brussel Sprouts etc.

Author Idriss

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups of full-fat coconut milk
  • 2/3 Cup Ice or Cold water
  • 1 Tbsp of natural organic peanut butter.
  • 2 Tsp of raw cacao powder.
  • 1 Tsp of organic stevia extract.
  • 1 Medium size avocado.
  • optional 2 Ice Cubes. I am not a big fan of icy smoothies during the winter, so I skipped this for now.

Instructions

  • In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Serve and enjoy.

Notes

You can drastically reduce the carb content by swapping coconut milk for unsweetened almond milk, or by using 1/2 cup coconut milk + 1 cup almond milk. However, your total fat content will drop with it as well.

You can also add your favourite protein powder, collagen peptides or multivitamin to this.

Here are some of the ones I use:

Collagen Peptides.

This is my favourite protein powder.
