Are you ready for a keto-friendly zucchini bread in a bowl that is packed with healthy vegetables without the taste of vegetables?! I’ve been eating this Keto Zucchini Bread Smoothie Bowl a lot lately, trying to enjoy zucchini as much as possible before the last of it dries up in the grocery stores. It is so good and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Ingredients Needed to Make a Keto Zucchini Bread Smoothie Bowl

Ingredient quantities are located in the recipe card at the end of the post.

Swerve Confectioners Sugar Replacement: If you’re looking for a sugar substitute, you’ll love Swerve Confectioners! It uses (natural) sugar alcohols which have zero effect on blood sugar, meaning you can subtract them from the net carb count. (That gives Swerve zero net carbs.) It also measures just like sugar, so there isn’t any guessing about how much to use. I purchase the 48 oz. bags because they are convenient and a much better price per ounce than the 12 oz. bags.

Swerve Brown Sugar Replacement: This brown sugar alternative truly has the taste and texture of the real thing!

Additional ingredients:

  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Vanilla extract
  • Walnuts
  • And of course: zucchini!

How to Make a Keto Zucchini Bread Smoothie Bowl

This is just a quick overview of how to make keto-friendly zucchini bread smoothie. For the recipe in detail, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

First, prepare your zucchini: Deseed it (but don’t peel it!) and then either shred it or chop it. Next, stick it in the freezer until frozen (at least four hours). FYI – shredding it will give you an easier blending experience, but chopping it will make the smoothie a bit thicker. Try it both ways and see how you like it!

Then add all ingredients to a blender or food processor…

and pulse until fully combined and your desired texture, taking breaks when/if needed.

TIP: If your appliance has trouble with the frozen zucchini, you can let the frozen zucchini thaw for 5-8 minutes first before using it.

Pour into a bowl and top with walnuts.

Peeling the Zucchini: Yes or No?

I highly recommend that you do NOT peel your zucchini. The reason for this is because most of the nutrients are in the peel! Peeling it defeats the purpose of the nutritious zucchini addition in this smoothie bowl, and I promise you won’t notice it other than a few green bits in your smoothie bowl.

How to Serve Your Keto Zucchini Bread Smoothie Bowl

I love smoothie bowls because they slow down the smoothie-drinking process (a smoothie can go fast if you’re not careful!), plus the top makes a wonderful home for additional smoothie toppings. I’m serving this smoothie bowl with walnuts, but feel free to top your smoothie bowl with:

  • Chia seeds
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • A few low-carb berries
  • A dollop of nut butter

How to Boost the Protein Content of a Keto Zucchini Bread Smoothie Bowl

As you’ll see in the nutrition facts below, this smoothie is a bit low on protein. If you want to boost the protein content, you can add a half or whole scoop of this protein powder:

Vanilla Whey Protein Isolate Powder

This protein powder contains only 1g net carbs per serving and 25g protein. It is delicious in keto smoothies!

Once you have some on hand, you can also make my Keto French Toast Loaf!
