Isn’t it funny how we always crave the things we can’t have? When I first started the keto diet, I had a serious craving for Reese’s peanut butter cups. And the crazy part is that I didn’t even eat peanut butter cups before I was keto! But as soon as I couldn’t have them anymore– BAM! That’s all I could think about it. It’s interesting how the mind works, huh?
So instead of giving into my cravings and indulging in something that would kick me out of ketosis, I decided to put my food blogger skills to the test and create a healthy keto smoothie that tastes EXACTLY like a Reese’s peanut butter cup. And I have to say, I succeeded. This creamy dreamy Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie with Avocado has the perfect balance of rich chocolate and salty peanut butter. The avocado gives this low carb chocolate peanut butter shake a luscious texture without any heavy cream. It also adds a healthy dose of high-quality fat.
This Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is a FAT BOMB that will keep you full for hours. In addition to the avocado, it contains full fat coconut milk, MCT oil, and of course peanut butter so you get allll the healthy fats! You can also add in a handful of spinach for extra nutrition (you won’t even taste it– I promise!) and/or your favorite keto protein powder for a boost. This is a great low carb meal replacement shake for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack! Here are the ingredients for the Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie with Avocado:
- Full fat coconut milk
- Almond milk
- Peanut butter
- Cocao powder
- MCT oil
- Liquid Stevia
- Handful of spinach (optional)
- Keto chocolate protein powder (optional)
How healthy is that? Looking at these ingredients, you won’t believe how indulgent this Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie tastes but it’s sooo decadent! In addition to healthy fats, this keto chocolate peanut butter milkshake contains the nutrition powerhouse cocao powder. Cacao powder is used to make chocolate and contains an astounding number of health benefits. It has almond milk making this keto smoothie a dairy free and vegan indulgence (but you can use any unsweetened milk that you have on hand). Finally, a few drops of liquid stevia adds just the right amount of sweetness (but again, you can use any keto sweetener you want).
There are also tons of fun optional add-ins for this Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie. As I mentioned, spinach and protein powder add extra nutrition boosts. You can also garnish your low carb chocolate peanut butter shake with cacao nibs (another keto friendly nutritional powerhouse that actually burns fat) for some crunch. I also like adding a few low carb chocolate peanut butter cups (like these here) for an extra nod to the Reese’s we all know and love. Other garnish options include chopped peanuts, dark chocolate curls, and anything else you can think of. The sky’s the limit!
This Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is versatile too. You can make it paleo by using almond butter and nut free by using sunflower butter (and replacing the almond milk). If you’re fine with dairy, you can use heavy cream in place of the coconut milk and regular milk in place of the almond milk. And if you want an extra fat bomb that will keep you full ALL DAY, you can add a tablespoon of coconut oil. The possibilities for this low carb chocolate peanut butter smoothie are endless!
So whether you’re craving Reese’s peanut butter cups like I was or you’re just looking for a little low carb indulgence, this healthy Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie with Avocado and Almond Milk is sure to satisfy all your cravings. Who doesn’t love a treat that tastes decadent, but is actually good for you? Enjoy!
Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie with Avocado
This delicious Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is a low carb and guilt-free indulgence! It tastes just like a Reese's peanut butter cup but is filled with healthy fat and nutritious ingredients. You'll love this low carb chocolate peanut butter shake.
- 3/4 cup Almond Milk unsweetened
- 1/2 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk canned
- 1/4 Avocado
- 1 tablespoon Peanut Butter
- 1 tablespoon Cacao Powder
- 1 tablespoon MCT Oil or coconut oil
- 1 small handful Ice (I used 4 ice cubes)
- 5-10 drops Liquid stevia to taste
- 1 handful Spinach optional
- 1 scoop Chocolate keto protein powder
- Cacao nibs, for garnish optional
- Crushed low carb peanut butter cups, for garnish optional
Add all ingredients except for garnishes into a high powered blender.
Blend on high for 1 minute until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add more almond milk. If it's too thin, add more ice.
Pour smoothie into a glass and top with garnishes. Enjoy immediately!
Make it Paleo- replace peanut butter with almond butter, use 1 tablespoon of honey instead of stevia
Make it Nut Free- replace peanut butter with sunflower butter, replace almond milk with other unsweetened milk
Feel free to experiment with the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter. If it's too "peanut-y" add more cacao powder and if it's too "chocolate-y" add more peanut butter. Adjust one teaspoon at a time until it's perfect for you!
If you're fine with dairy, you can use heavy cream in place of the full fat coconut milk and regular milk in place of the almond milk.
To make this a meal replacement shake, add your favorite chocolate keto protein powder. My favorite is this one here. Please note, this protein powder contains collagen so it isn't vegan.
Separation is natural with canned coconut milk. Shake it up so you can get the best liquid to fat ratio.
If you want even more of a fat bomb, add one tablespoon of coconut oil or an extra tablespoon of MCT oil.
You can replace the stevia with any other low carb sweetener you prefer. Some people don't like stevia because of the aftertaste, but not all stevia is created equal. Different brands taste distinct from each other. I recommend this brand here, which tastes smooth and delicious with no aftertaste!
If you're having trouble finding low carb chocolate peanut butter cups for garnish, you can find them on Amazon here. I couldn't find them at the grocery store so I ordered online.
