I’m not really a big tea person. I buy it occasionally, but I usually end up disappointed with the flavor even after I’ve loaded it with stevia. But a few months ago, I stumbled upon a tea that had me saying “O-M-G!” from the very first sip.
That tea is Bigelow’s Salted Caramel black tea. It is 100% true to flavor and pretty much tastes like candy when sweetened with stevia. Add a little almond milk and you’ve got yourself one heck of a treat.
Of course… I couldn’t leave such an awesome tea alone. I had to take it and make it into an AMAZING keto smoothie because why not? The resulting smoothie is thick, sweet, full of keto-friendly fats, and is slightly caffeinated (between 30-60mg of caffeine) thanks to the tea.
If you’re a caramel fan, this is probably going to be your favorite warm weather smoothie. Just sayin’. 🙂

How to Make a Salted Caramel Keto Smoothie
Put all your ingredients in a blender (I use a Vitamix that I have owned for about 15 years now and it was THE best kitchen appliance purchase ever!) and blend away. That’s all! This makes a good amount of smoothie and it’s ALL yours… but you can split it if you’re feeling extra-nice.
A few tips:
- Not sure how thick you want your smoothie? This recipe calls for 3/4 tsp xanthan gum. Thanks to the magical powers of xanthan gum, this will give you a THICK smoothie. If you’re not sure if you want your smoothie super-thick, add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum at a time, blend for 10 seconds, try a bit, and then go from there.
- Don’t love a SUPER sweet smoothie? This recipe calls for 1/2 tsp stevia. If a really sweet smoothie isn’t your thing, try 1/4 tsp to start.
- For an extra-fun flavor, use unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I actually haven’t tried this yet, so you can be my guinea pig! A vanilla salted caramel smoothie? Ooooh yeah!

This keto smoothie is amazing. I like the “fat bomb” aspect of it, but if I was going to use it as a meal replacement it doesn’t have enough protein. May I suggest a non-dairy, unflavored protein powder like Organisource Grass Fed Bone Broth Protein Powder? It adds 20 grams of protein and a silky smooth and thick texture like mousse. Obviously this wouldn’t work for vegans, but it is really good. You could even omit the xanthan gum altogether. Salted caramel is my favorite so I’m going to try to find that tea.
