Blueberry Banana Bread Smoothie

Keto Recipes > Breakfast

Before you say it, I know what you’re thinking: “But Craig, bananas are definitely not allowed on a ketogenic diet!” Don’t worry guys, we’re using banana flavored extract to impart some flavor into our smoothie – no real bananas needed! This one does thicken up slightly more than the others because of the addition of flax and chia seeds, but I think it gives a great hearty mouthfeel that is perfect for breakfast replacements.

I’ve been on a little bit of a smoothie binge lately, so if you’d like to check out the shakes and smoothies that were posted previous to this one, take a look below:

You have two options when putting the chia seeds in: you can either let the blender deal with them and give them a slight chop, or you can completely pre-grind the chia seeds using a spice grinder and then dump them in afterward. I don’t mind the little pieces of chia, especially if you leave the smoothie for 10-15 minutes prior to drinking. The chia soaks up some of the liquid and gets a slightly resembling consistency to bubble tea.

What kind of smoothie would you make with your favorite extracts? Let us know in the comments below!

4. Measure 1 tbsp. chia seeds and also add in it. I like to wait for a few minutes before I blend – then blend for 1-2 minutes or until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

Blueberry Banana Bread Smoothie

This makes 2 total servings of Blueberry Banana Bread Shake. Per serving, this comes out to be 270 Calories, 23.31g Fats, 4.66g Net Carbs, and 3.13g Protein.

  • 3 tablespoons golden flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 cups vanilla unsweetened coconut milk (from the carton)

  • 1 ½ teaspoons banana extract
  • ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum

The Execution

  1. Add all ingredients together into a blender. I'm using a Ninja Blender with Mini Ninja attachment.
