Keto Banana Smoothie {Dairy-Free + Modification Options!}

banana smoothie on keto?! Yes, really! This Keto Banana Smoothie really has the flavor of banana without the carbs. It also packs a healthy veggie punch with the addition of (virtually undetectable!) baby spinach, but you can omit the spinach if you’re not in a green smoothie mood.

One of my favorite high-carb fruits is banana (along with pineapple and mango!), and it was one of the first fruits I missed on keto. But thanks to the magic of banana extract, I was able to make a smoothie with the wonderful flavor of banana without all the carbs! 🍌 A drizzle of peanut butter on top takes this smoothie to the next level for the ultimate smoothie experience.

I made this smoothie into a keto green smoothie (a smoothie with green veggies) because I’m allll about the keto green smoothies (and the baby spinach in this recipe is virtually undetectable!), but you are welcome to omit the baby spinach if you want a regular keto banana smoothie. No matter if you enjoy it with or without the baby spinach, you’ll love adding this smoothie to your keto menu rotation!

*If you aren’t interested in making a green smoothie, you can omit the baby spinach.

Why I Use (and Love) Equip Protein Powder + Coupon!

The short version: it tastes fabulous and is perfect for keto!

The long version: Prior to embarking on a keto diet, I had been dairy-free for almost a decade because dairy began to cause some strange issues for me like next-day undereye and facial puffiness, acne, and nearly instant sinus drainage.

I tried dairy-free keto for about a month, but then I made the big decision to experiment with introducing dairy into my diet yet again because, let’s face it, dairy is soo good and it makes the keto diet extra-delicious. To my surprise, I had no issues for quite a long time! However, late last year, my dairy issues flared up again (plus a few new ones), so I decided to significantly scale back on dairy.

In addition to other replacements, I wanted to replace my vanilla whey protein powder with a dairy-free, keto-friendly protein powder, which was NOT an easy task. I finally stumbled upon Equip Protein Powder and rejoiced! It contains 0g net carbs, 24g protein, and tastes delicious. It’s actually made from “beef protein isolate,” which I know sounds disgusting 🙂 , but I assure you it is not. (It does not taste like beef at all.) I love both the chocolate and vanilla flavor, but the vanilla is especially tasty.

A coupon for you: You can use coupon code FORGETSUGAR10 at checkout to get a whopping $10 off a bag of Equip Protein Powder (choose from vanilla or chocolate).

TIP: I also use Equip Vanilla Protein Powder in my Keto Shamrock Shake recipe, so make sure to make that one as well if you pick up the protein powder!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen baby spinach
  • 1 scoop Equip Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 tbsp MCT oil
  • 1/2 tsp banana extract
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • Optional: keto-friendly sweetener to taste
  • 1 tsp unsweetened peanut butter melted

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • If the smoothie isn't cold enough, blend with a few ice cubes (not too many or you’ll dilute the flavor).

Notes

Variations:
  • Spinach-Free: Although the baby spinach is virtually undetectable in the smoothie, you can omit it if desired.
