I used to be the Smoothie Queen – I would blend one up a few times a week at least and sometimes twice a day. Then I was told that I need to have most of my vegetables cooked because of my weird allergies. There are only a few veggies I can eat raw, thankfully spinach is one of them! In addition to food allergies, I also eat a pretty Keto with a bit more protein added in. A Keto Avocado Spinach Smoothie is the perfect way to start the day, especially if you don’t have a ton of time in the morning.

A Keto Avocado Spinach Smoothie – Perfect Way to Start the Day
Serves – 2
- 1 cup of Baby Spinach or 2 scoops of Organic Spinach Powder
- ½ of a large Avocado
- 1 cup of Coconut Milk
- 1 Tbsp of Monk Fruit Maple Syrup
- 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- ½ cup of Ice
- 1 scoops of Keto Collagen Peptides Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1 Tsp of Chia Seeds (optional)
New to Keto? The Keto Diet: The Complete Guide to a High-Fat Diet was the first book I read on it. I LOVED IT! The science is on point and whenever I stumble, I go back and read it again to get myself back on point.
I also want to note that I don’t personally use the monk fruit maple syrup as I like mine more tart than sweet. When making this smoothie for friends though, they have asked to have it a bit more sweeter. Leave it out if you can, if not using this sweetener is Keto-approved!
In a blender, combine the coconut milk (you can use canned or the container kind, just note that the canned gives a thicker shake), spinach, avocado, monk fruit maple syrup, lemon juice, and the protein powder.
Blend on high until smooth. If you like it a little thinner, add more ice. If you like it thick like a shake add more canned coconut milk.
Add the ice cubes and blend well. If you like it a little thinner, add more ice. If you like it thick like a shake add more canned coconut milk.
Pour it into serving glasses or into a travel tumbler if you need to drink it on the go.
Because the avocado oxidizes quickly, it is best consumed immediately. If stored, it might darken a bit, but it will still be delicious.
I also add in parsley, arugula, kale, and celery to give it a power punch. They are all low in carbs and high in vitamins. If you need it a little sweeter, add in blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries. All of these fruits are Keto-approved!
