Keto chocolate pudding
If you like to start your day with warming foods, just skip the last ingredient, ice cream, and you have an incredibly rich and smooth keto chocolate pudding.

Put this pudding in the fridge and it turns into a keto chocolate mousse. This is one of my most versatile keto recipes.
Are Smoothies Good For You?
If you’re wondering if smoothies are good for you, I’m here to help.
I love smoothie meal replacements when I’m on the go. Smoothies also help very well with my digestive disorders.
Gut health and smoothies
I was in my thirties when I was diagnosed with celiac disease, so maintaining bowel health is an issue that I keep exploring to this day. I can eat a lot more when the food is mixed into a healthy smoothie.

Never have I ever done a smoothie cleanse. Did you? Recently my friend Steph told me about a green smoothie called Alkagizer, but I didn’t try it.
Alkagizer Green Smoothie Recipe
Wondering how to make an alkagizer?
Simply mix a cup of coconut water, half a lemon, an avocado, peeled cucumber, and five celery stalks into your Vitamix, then mix a handful of each of the spinach, chard, parsley, coriander and arugula.
This looks like the perfect vegan smoothie!
Smoothies to gain weight
When using smoothies for weight gain, the most important thing is not to overload your smoothies with sugar. Instead of carbohydrates that are directly converted into fat, choose healthy macronutrients like protein and fat.
Today, more than ever, the problem with gaining fat is that it is an incredible source of toxins from heavy metals to BPA and more.
And if you’re trying to gain weight, use this body mass index calculator to make sure you’re staying in a generally healthy range – not too high or too low.
Best milk for keto
Anyway, back to healthy smoothies. And I have a quick question for you.
Do you make your smoothies with coconut milk or do you prefer your smoothies with almond milk? I have a great guide: What’s the Best Milk For Keto? to help you decide which milk is best for you.
Kitchen scales and keto
I have given the dimensions for this recipe in volume and weight. If you own a scale and want to be very accurate, you can weigh your ingredients.
For those who don’t have scales in their kitchen, I have provided volume measurements.
The ingredients for this keto chocolate smoothie recipe can be the same volume and yet produce different results when measured by weight. Why? Because some ingredients are denser and heavier than others.
Vitamix for the perfect smoothie
Here are a few additional pointers to help you make this awesome keto chocolate smoothie recipe! Use a powerful blender like a Vitamix to make this first or you won’t get the right results.
Using a regular blender will make a strange lumpy concoction rather than a smooth and creamy shake or pudding.
Second, you can experiment with this recipe and try different types of protein powder and chocolate.
While I haven’t tried any of my smoothie recipes would make a fantastic smoothie bowl to add your own cereal and fruit into.

On a smoothie diet kick? Whether you have a smoothie for breakfast or a smoothie for dinner, my healthy smoothie recipes below offer you a lot of variety.
Perhaps my favorite fruity drink of all, my Strawberry Smoothie with Lime is a delicious smoothie made with coconut milk. The strawberry and lime combination is out of this world.
Smoothie for breakfast? My Breakfast Smoothie is the perfect combination of a strawberry shake and an almond butter smoothie.
Keto Mint Chip Protein Shake
Another smoothie made with coconut milk, we love this Keto Mint Chip Protein Shake for St. Paddy’s Day. Green smoothie recipes are the bomb, smoothies with kale, smoothies with spinach. I love them all!
Peanut butter smoothie
Fancy a peanut butter smoothie? My peanut butter smoothie won’t disappoint. It can also be made with almond butter for an almond butter smoothie.
Pumpkin and spice smoothie
It doesn’t have to be autumn to enjoy a pumpkin and spice smoothie, this incredible treat can be enjoyed all year round.
Smoothies for kids
I fed all of these protein shakes to my boys and they are the perfect smoothies for kids.
Egg white protein powder
You will find that many of my healthy smoothie recipes above contain egg white protein powder.
This ingredient is crucial in making the smoothie fluffy and creating the perfect texture. And if you are looking for an energy smoothie, this is the ingredient that you will want.
