Are you looking for an easy to make Keto shake for a quick pick-me-up? This 5 Minute Super Creamy Keto Raspberry Smoothie is creamy and flavorful with less than 7 grams of net carbs for the entire smoothie!
Smoothies are one of the easiest things to get right on a Keto diet. I love mixing ingredients and trying new things.
The biggest trick with a keto smoothie is to add fruits low in sugar so it doesn’t kick you out of ketosis for the day.
What Fruits can I use for my Keto Raspberry smoothie?
For this recipe, I’m using raspberries. Raspberries are rich in fiber and add a classic fruity flavor to an icy smoothie recipe.
I choose raspberries because they are an excellent keto diet friendly fruit that net only 5.44 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams serving.
They’re also an excellent chose for antioxidants, potassium and Vitamin C. Because they contain phytochemical compounds, we know them to help prevent chronic diseases.
However, you can take this same recipe and add other fruits low in sugar such as :
Watermelon - Watermelon is the best fruit for a smoothie with the lowest carbohydrate count. It packs 7.55 grams per 100 grams of fruit. It’s low in fiber and sugar. Watermelon is also high in Vitamin A and has a high water count to keep your hydrated.
Strawberries - Strawberries have the lowest carbs of all the berries. For every 100 grams of strawberries, you have 7.68 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber.
Blackberries - Blackberries have the fewest net carbs at 4.31 net grams.
Cantaloupe - Cantaloupe tastes great in smoothies and as a water infuser. Drop some cantaloupe with some strawberries and mint into water, let it set, and you’ll have a refreshing drink that’s perfectly healthy for you.
Honeydew - Honeydew, like cantaloupe, is an excellent source of Vitamin C and potassium. By adding this to your smoothie recipe, you’ll be adding an electrolyte that helps maintain good blood press

The ingredients and directions are straightforward and easy to follow. Here are a few extra tips to help:
Yogurt -Usually the best choice for yogurt for a keto smoothie is to use a whole milk Greek yogurt that’s unflavored.
Protein Powder - When choosing your protein powder you’ll want to stick with a low carb protein. While some protein powders have regular sweeteners, they can increase the carb count. Plant based protein powders also have a higher carb count when compared to whey protein powders.
For my smoothies I recommend a vanilla whey protein isolate. Particularly one that’s a zero-carb sweetener. I personally love the Perfect Keto Collagen Peptides Protein Powder. Not only is it delicious, it’s made for keto diet recipes.
