This mixed berry smoothie bowl is an easy keto breakfast and snack that works year-round! Frozen mixed berries are the base for this smoothie bowl recipe, which means berries don't have to be in season. Avocado, coconut cream, chia seeds and macadamia nuts are blended into this mixed smoothie bowl for a true keto smoothie that's high in healthy fats and low in carbs and natural sugar.
Top it with fresh or frozen berries, coconut flakes, chia seeds, keto granola or other nuts/seeds for extra goodness.
This keto smoothie bowl is basically a dressed up keto berry smoothie. Sure, it's not as portable as a regular smoothie (and if you're looking for one that works on-the-go, check out this banana almond butter smoothie or this keto tropical smoothie!), but it's fun to make and feels a tad more special when served in a bowl with all the toppings.
- keto, low-carb and paleo
- dairy free and vegan
- ready in 5 minutes!
- a delicious frozen treat!
ingredients for this mixed berry smoothie bowl
For this smoothie bowl recipe, you will need:
- Frozen mixed berries. I use a combo of frozen blackberries, raspberries and blueberries- all low-carb and low in sugar.
- Coconut cream. This thickens the smoothie bowl and adds creaminess.
- Chia seeds. Use chia seeds or even hemp hearts for an extra dose of fat/protein.
- Avocado. More fat. But you won't even taste it!
- Raw macadamia nuts. Make sure to choose raw instead of roasted nuts as they will break down and blend better.
- Unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Use a small amount if needed to thin down the keto smoothie (can also use coconut or macadamia milk)
- Unsweetened coconut flakes, fresh berries and extra chia seeds for topping the smoothie bowl.
Optional add-ins include a scoop of protein powder of choice (use unflavored or vanilla), collagen, or a tablespoon of coconut oil/MCT oil if you'd like to add extra fat. For extra sweetness, you can also add a few drops of liquid monk fruit (like this one) or stevia.
an easy keto smoothie bowl recipe
Let's make a mixed berry smoothie bowl!
You will need a high-powdered blender for this recipe. I use this Ninja blender (affiliate) but any kind will do as long as it can easily crush up the frozen berries and macadamia nuts.
- Combine the ingredients. Place all of the smoothie bowl ingredients into the blender except for the almond milk.
- Blend. Blend the mixture on high for 1 minute, then stop and scrape down the sides. Blend another 1-2 minutes or until the mixture is smooth. Blend in the almond milk to thin down the smoothie, if needed. Taste and adjust as you'd like (this is when you'd add extra sweetener like monk fruit or stevia, but that will depend on how sweet the berries are).
- Add the toppings. Divide the smoothie between two medium bowls and top with your ingredients of choice- fresh or frozen berries, a sprinkle of chia seeds and coconut flakes are my favorite!
mixed berry smoothie bowl tips
- Frozen mixed berries like raspberries and blackberries contain seeds, so if you'd prefer fewer seeds in your smoothie bowl, I recommend using a mixture of frozen blueberries and strawberries.
- This smoothie bowl recipe makes enough for two servings. They might appear to be on the small-ish side, but the mixed berry smoothie is very filling (and even more-so if you add protein powder or MCT oil).
- This smoothie bowl recipe is also really versatile! I've made different variations, including adding a whole kale leaf or a handful of spinach for extra greens. Frozen cauliflower rice is also a wonderful (and tasteless!) smoothie add-in. Increase the amount of dairy-free milk to get the right consistency.
- This mixed berry smoothie bowl also makes a delicious, drinkable keto berry smoothie! Adjust the recipe by adding more dairy-free milk or water to thin it down.
I love this mixed berry smoothie bowl because it's quick, fresh and healthy. The stunning color and combination of ingredients sort of reminds me of an acai bowl, but it's higher in fat and lower in sugar. Plus, it's soft-serve deliciousness. Smoothie bowls forever.

- 1-¼ cups frozen berries (I use a mix of blackberries, raspberries and blueberries)
- ⅓ cup coconut cream
- ½ small avocado (or ¼ large avocado)
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon raw macadamia nuts
- pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or more as needed to thin the smoothie)
- liquid monk fruit sweetener or stevia drops to taste (optional)
- toppings of choice like unsweetened coconut flakes, fresh/frozen berries, chia seeds or hemp hearts
- Add all of the ingredients to your blender, except for the almond milk.
- Blend the mixture on high for 1 minute, then stop and scrape down the sides. Blend another 1-2 minutes on high until the mixture is smooth.
- Check the consistency. If the smoothie appears too thick, add the almond milk. Blend another 30 seconds. Add more almond milk if needed. The consistency should be similar to soft serve- smooth and easy to scoop with a spoon.
- Taste and adjust to your preference (this is when you will add optional sweetener like liquid monk fruit but that depends on how sweet your berries are).
- Divide the smoothie between two bowls and add your favorite toppings (berries, chia seeds, coconut flakes or keto granola).
If you prefer fewer seeds in the smoothie bowl, swap the chia seeds for hemp hearts and use a berry mixture of frozen blueberries and strawberries.
This smoothie is very versatile! Add in MCT oil, coconut oil, protein powder or collagen if desired. I have also made variations that include kale, spinach or frozen cauliflower.
To turn this mixed berry smoothie bowl into a drinkable keto berry smoothie, add more almond milk to thin.
