Low Carb Blueberry Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 4 scoops (40 grams) Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides* (see notes, you could sub protein powder)

  • 1 tablespoon sugar replacement (or equivalent, see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons MCT oil* (optional, for added fat content)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups unsweetened nut milk, low carb milk, or you could mix in some heavy whipping cream for more fat and creaminess!

Recipe Notes:

We originally created this smoothie recipe back in July of 2018. We have since tweaked how we make this recipe to lower the carbs, and to put in some better sources of protein and collagen! We used to include whey protein, but we found that this upset our stomaches. It also added some unnecessary carbs. We now use Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in place of protein powder.   It’s good for our hair, skin, nails, joints and gut health, and provides lots of protein without irritating our digestive system. If you’d rather include protein powder, feel free to just swap the collagen for your protein powder of choice. We love Vital Proteins products because they are from pasture raised, grass fed cows and are completely gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, paleo, Whole 30 and keto friendly. They are also low in carbs and calories, while adding a nice punch of protein and lots of beneficial amino acids.  

Flavor and Thickness:

Thickness: We would also like to note that we like our smoothies kind of “runny” rather than thick, so if you like your smoothies more thick, simply omit some of the ice. 

Vanilla: Just a note about imitation vanilla – it’s been much cheaper than vanilla extract lately, so we often have that on hand. Vanilla extract is our preferred, but imitation vanilla works just fine and it measures the same. 

Another great addition to this smoothie would be some heavy whipping cream for more fat and creamy flavor!

    1. Hey Cee Jaye,

      Yes, in a cup of blueberries there are about 21 total carbs, minus about 4 for fiber. We love blueberries, but do realize there is some carb content there, so that is why we add 1/2 a cup of blueberries for 2 servings. 🙂
