This strawberry avocado smoothie recipe with almond milk is creamy, satisfying, nourishing and just plain delicious! And, it only has 4 ingredients. Now, I know what you’re thinking here. You love the idea of a keto smoothie for breakfast, but would a strawberry avocado smoothie be good?
Truth be told, I’m not really a “smoothie person”. Don’t get me wrong – many of them are absolutely delicious. It’s just that they are typically filled with sugar and easy to over-indulge on. Even the ones with no added sugar frequently have more sugar-y fruit than I’m used to. More often than not, I much prefer to eat my calories, versus drink them.
All that being said, when it gets super hot in the summertime, few things can beat an ice cold low carb strawberry avocado smoothie!
I’m here to tell you, you’ve got to try it! You’re welcome. This avocado smoothie recipe is so simple and tasty that it’s about to become your go-to keto smoothie recipe! It’s so easy, you’re not going to believe it.
When you want something cool and refreshing, 4-ingredient low carb ice cream is a no-brainer. And 3-ingredient raspberry ice cream? Oh, yeah, mmm mmm good.
But now? Now it’s time to add this Strawberry Avocado Smoothie to the top of your list, friends.
Choosing Berries For A Keto Smoothie
First things first. How do you go about choosing berries for a keto smoothie? Raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries are all great options for your keto smoothie recipes.
If you want more details on ingredients for your keto diet smoothie (or any other part of your keto lifestyle!), you can check out this detailed list of low carb keto foods. You’ll get specific carb counts and details on other fruits that are low carb and totally great to try in your other keto breakfast smoothies. You can even print it out or save it to your phone so it’s always handy (how cool is that?).
As I said, there are a few low carb options for a keto smoothie. But for this particular keto smoothie with almond milk, you want to use strawberries.
Strawberries are not only delicious, but they are sweeter than other berries so you will use less sweetener. Plus, a strawberry avocado smoothie just works. You’ll see.
The Best Avocado Smoothie Recipe
There are many avocado smoothie recipes out there, but I’m partial to this one. It’s creamy, refreshing, a powerhouse of nutrition, incredibly easy to make, and yummy. Every avocado smoothie recipe has four basic building blocks: avocado, milk, berries, and sweetener.
Avocados are low carb and nutrient dense. They are rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals (particularly B vitamins!), and both soluble and insoluble fiber.
In addition to all of the health benefits of this avocado smoothie recipe, the avocado adds a perfect creamy texture that makes it almost like a dessert instead of a keto fruit smoothie. And who doesn’t love dessert for breakfast?
Choosing a keto avocado smoothie sets you up for a great day of fat-burning and provides plenty of energizing nutrition. And this avocado smoothie recipe is so easy and delicious, you can just toss it together and get on with your amazing day.
Every keto smoothie needs liquid, and ideally some kind of milk for that creamy flavor and texture that makes it even more delish.
If you want to make your strawberry avocado smoothie with almond milk, you may want to consider making it at home. Here’s my homemade almond milk recipe suggestion that works for Keto, Paleo, Whole 30, and Trim Healthy Mama.
Now we’re getting to the fun part! It’s time to add some berries to your avocado almond milk smoothie. This is for flavor and sweetness.
Strawberries are among the lowest carb fruit options available, and by far the sweetest on your keto-friendly food list. If you’re going to have an avocado fruit smoothie, strawberries are both a logical and enjoyable choice.
Of course, you could use blueberries or raspberries if you want something more tart, have a sensitivity to strawberries, or just want to shake up your avocado smoothie recipe.
Use whatever you have, and adjust it to your taste. You can even omit sweetener altogether if you don’t want it very sweet, and depending on how sweet your strawberries are. A keto strawberry smoothie is already equipped to be sweetly delicious, so it’s all up to you here!
Ingredient Options For A Keto Smoothie
This strawberry avocado smoothie is so good, but did you realize you can customize your keto smoothie?
If you’re not dairy-free or paleo, you can swap out half the almond milk for heavy cream. If you are dairy-free and/or paleo, then use coconut cream. This just takes rich and creamy to a whole new level. Oh yes, think classic milkshake here! And yet… it’s a keto smoothie that helps keep you healthy and slim.
For some added flavor, you can use unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of unflavored. You can buy this at the store, or make it at home to keep it a 100% whole food recipe.
And you can make it as sweet as you like, too. If you’re keto and paleo, but not worried about carbs, then coconut sugar is a flavorful option to consider. While you don’t have to add sweetener, it’s definitely recommended because you’re using unsweetened almond milk and avocado which aren’t naturally sweet. Check out this natural low carb sweeteners guide & conversion chart to pick your preference for this keto smoothie with avocado.
I do have to say, a keto smoothie is even better with a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream (or coconut whipped cream) on top – and a fresh strawberry for garnish, of course!
How To Make an Avocado Smoothie with Almond Milk
By now you’re convinced that a keto smoothie with avocado is the perfect choice. So how do you make this absolutely delicious strawberry avocado smoothie? It’s so easy (and yummy!), you’re going to want to run right to your kitchen to make one!
