Super easy, made with my favorite berry, this Low Carb Blackberry Smoothie is a refreshing creamy beverage packed with protein. Made with fresh blackberries and thickened with Greek yogurt.
You'll love how quick and easy this smoothie is to make and that it's sweetened with stevia and only 3g net carbs. A perfect drink if you are watching your sugar intake or if you are diabetic, keto, or low carb.
Smoothies can be enjoyed for a low carb breakfast, on the go, or enjoy them as I do for dessert after dinner. In the summer months, I like something sweet after a meal and this is my go-to dessert.
This sugar free blackberry smoothie is not too sweet but gives me all the creamy dessert feels. If you love blackberries like I do you will love this Low Carb Blackberry Coconut Bars recipe.
Made with fresh blackberries although you can use frozen. This keto blackberry smoothie is also made with these ingredients:
- Almond Milk: although I used almond milk you can swap it with any milk you prefer, coconut milk is another favorite of mine in this smoothie.
- Greek Yogurt: a thicker and creamier consistency than traditional yogurt, goes perfect in this smoothie.
- Collagen Protein Powder: using a flavorless collagen protein powder helps to add collagen and protein to this smoothie without affecting the flavor. You can use protein powder only.
- Stevia Drops: to add a little touch of sweetness to this creamy low-carb berry smoothie.
- Vanilla Extract: vanilla heightens the flavors in this smoothie and gives it a mild vanilla taste.

Recipe tips and variations
Strain it: if the blackberry seeds are too much, strain the blackberry smoothie after blending or allow the seeds to fall to the bottom of the blender cup before pouring it into your smoothie glass.
Thicken it: If you like your smoothie really thick you should use frozen blackberries for this smoothie. It will make it thicker. You can also add heavy cream or cream cheese or more greek yogurt or ice for extra thickness.

Additional Ingredients: try adding some chia seeds or nut butter to help make you feel fuller longer.

Cheesecake Smoothie: make it a keto blackberry cheesecake smoothie and add 2 tablespoons of cream cheese to the recipe.
Frequently asked questions
This berry smoothie contains only 3g of sugar and can be considered a healthier option for people with diabetes.
The only actual sugar in the smoothie comes from the blackberries, so I would say it is pretty safe.
However, as I always say, different foods affect people differently, so you should monitor your blood sugars to see how it affects you personally.
Other berries that would work with this smoothie are blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
You can add other fruit like bananas and apples but that would increase the sugar amounts a lot more than simply adding other low carb berries while keeping it keto and diabetic friendly.
While blackberries grow from late spring to early fall, they are at their peak usually in July and August.
