Ingredients You’ll Need to Make This Vanilla Ice Cream Keto Coffee Smoothie

Death Wish Coffee

This is my FAVORITE coffee because it’s super-caffeinated (the company bills it as “The World’s Strongest Coffee“), meaning a little goes a long way. I highly recommend using it in this recipe because it infuses the smoothie with caffeine without making it taste like coffee. (Because you want it to taste like vanilla ice cream!) Alternatively, you can use very strongly brewed coffee.

Perfect Keto MCT Oil

MCT oil is loaded with healthy MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides), aka healthy fats. MCTs are a keto diet staple because you can put them in smoothies and coffee, on salads and veggies, etc. Use coupon code FORGETSUGARFRIDAY for 15% off your order!

NOW Better Organic Stevia Sweetener

A great keto-friendly sweetener.

 Viva Naturals Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a fantastic source of Omega 3s and also do a great job thickening smoothies, puddings, etc.

Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract

A nice vanilla extract with a good flavor.

Additional ingredients:

Let’s Make a Vanilla Ice Cream Keto Coffee Smoothie!

Before making this smoothie, you will need to brew your coffee and then freeze it in an ice cube tray. 12 oz coffee will fit perfectly in a standard ice cube tray, making each cube approximately .75 oz coffee.

Once you have your coffee cubes, gather your ingredients and add them to your blender (I use a Vitamix that I have owned for about 15 years now and it was THE best kitchen appliance purchase ever!)…

How to Thicken Your Vanilla Ice Cream Keto Coffee Smoothie

You have a few options if you want a thicker smoothie:

  • Be patient. The chia seeds will do a good job of thickening the smoothie if you let it sit about 6-8 minutes after blending.
  • Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is an awesome keto-friendly food that will do a fantastic job of thickening this smoothie. You can get it here!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Freeze coffee in an ice cube tray. (12 oz coffee will fill a standard ice cube tray.) Note: If you don't use Death Wish Coffee, you will need to use more coffee cubes if you want the same caffeine content.
  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Pour in a glass.

Notes

Important note about the caffeine content: According to Death Wish Coffee's FAQ, there are 54.2 mg caffeine per ounce. A typical Dunkin' Donuts coffee has 12.7 mg per ounce, and a Starbucks coffee has 20.6 mg per ounce. This recipe calls for 3.75oz (5 frozen ice cubes), giving you about 200 mg caffeine. If that is too much caffeine for you, use less Death Wish Coffee.
If you prefer not to use Death Wish Coffee, you can use strongly brewed coffee.

If you don't consume dairy, use nutpods Unsweetened Dairy-Free Creamer instead of the whipping cream.

How to thicken your smoothie:
  • Be patient. The chia seeds will do a good job of thickening the smoothie if you let it sit about 6-8 minutes after blending.
  • Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is an awesome keto-friendly food that will do a fantastic job of thickening this smoothie. You can get it here!
