We think you will love this Low Carb Blueberry Smoothie. It’s packed full of fiber, fats and of course antioxidant rich blueberries. It makes the perfect breakfast if you’re looking to cut some sugar and carbs on a low carb diet. The best part is, it still tastes sweet, but has a minimal effect on your blood sugar! This keto friendly smoothie is going to be a favorite once you try it!
Here’s What You Need For The Low Carb Blueberry Smoothie:
- Cream cheese (full fat)
- Fresh or frozen blueberries
- Protein powder of choice
- Ground cinnamon
- Sweetener of choice (we love Swerve)
- MCT oil* (optional, for added fat content)
- Vanilla extract
- Unsweetened nut milk, low carb milk, or you could mix in some heavy whipping cream for more fat and creaminess!
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 now use Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein in place of whey 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 whey protein powder, feel free to just swap the collagen for your protein powder of choice. We love Ancient Nutrition 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!
