This is my first time posting a recipe on any blog, so you’ll have to excuse any bad grammar, typos, and general lack of food porn. There’s a lot of emphasis on smoothies right now, so I thought I’d share a simple keto smoothie recipe.
Strawberries and bananas (and any fruit really) are a great base for ketogenic smoothies, but why settle for just one? Lets make easy keto strawberry banana smoothie. Switching up what you put into your drink is a great way to get more variety in your day, and a great way to feel fuller faster.
Rise and shine with a low-carb smoothie!
Smoothies are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast packed with vitamins to give you energy and keep you on track throughout the day. There’s nothing better than a refreshing summertime strawberry drink, and we’ve hacked a traditional smoothie to give you that banana flavor you love without all the added carbs! One of the best of them is Keto Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
Keep these tips in mind when making a keto strawberry banana smoothie:
- We opted for frozen berries to help thicken the base of the smoothie without the use of ice. If you want to take advantage of fresh strawberries in season, cut the tops off and place in the freezer for a few hours before blending.
- You can add more of your favorite low carb ingredients to bulk up your smoothies, such as spinach, kale, or mixed berries.
A strawberry and banana smoothie is good for you because strawberries are rich in fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. They are among the top 20 most antioxidant-rich fruits.

My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me (as pictured above) and here’s what she had to say:
“I really love the simplicity of this recipe and being able to just throw everything in the blender and serve when done. I like to add a scoop of protein powder to bulk it up and it helps me stay full most of the day, you can’t even taste it.
I loved using frozen strawberries so the smoothie was full of flavor and didn’t get watered down even as it was melting. When I added the whipped heavy cream to the top, it felt like I was getting a cheat treat, but nope, it was still low carb!” – Jenna
