While we’re not following a keto diet, we love how creamy these low carb smoothies are! They can also be classified as keto smoothies because of their high fat, low carb nutritional value.
Since fruits are often off limits with the diet, we had fun finding new keto smoothies to try! They are quick, easy meal to mix into your routine.
We also love these keto smoothies because they allow you to skip meat for a meal. This makes the keto diet seem a little more realistic meal prep wise for us anyways.
Plus, the keto smoothies are typically cheaper to make than a meal with meat.

Many Keto Smoothies Contain MCT Oil
But what is it?
MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. These are fats that are metabolized differently than other fats. They are broken down quickly and absorbed by the body versus being stored as fat.
This means that they have healthy benefits long-chain fats don’t have.
The possible benefits of MCT oil are:
- A sense of being full
- Help the body burn more calories and possibly fat (source).
- Promote a greater fat loss: (source).
They are found in coconut oil specifically, but you can also buy them as a supplement. One of the most popular brands is Bulletproof’s Brain Octane.
