Who Needs Cereal?
Working from home is great, but it wreaks havoc on your sleep schedule! With the freedom to wake up when you choose and working past normal hours, you start going to sleep later and later. Lately, we’ve been trying to get our sleep schedules back on track to wake up earlier, and it’s tough! What’s tougher is waking up to a blasting alarm clock, having to make a good breakfast and run out the door to catch a train. We’ve done this for many years and we do not miss it.
Whether you work early or not, a good breakfast can set the tone for the rest of your day. And not having enough time to make it is an unfortunate thing that we love solving. Finding quick and easy breakfasts that are customizable to anyone’s tastes are the best!
Smoothie bowls have become very popular on Tumblr, Pinterest and other social media. Today, we decided to make a keto smoothie bowl recipe!

The base of a smoothie bowl is usually a smoothie – something creamy and thick enough to hold toppings. Most smoothie bowl bases are made with lots of fruits, but on a low carb diet, we want to monitor and limit the amount of sugar. That’s not to say we’re ruling fruit out completely, but we decided to make a more veggie and protein-based smoothie.
A mix of spinach, almond milk and cream makes for a great consistency and packs a vitamin and mineral punch. Add a scoop of your favorite low carb protein powder and you’ve got a great tasting, high protein, low sugar, nutritious smoothie base that’ll keep you full. Now, let’s talk toppings.
Keto means high fat! We chose the yummiest high-fat toppings that pair beautifully together in this smoothie bowl. Fruits and nuts can be found in most smoothie bowls anyway! We chose raspberries and walnuts, our favorite! Along with that, some chewy, shredded coconut (unsweetened, of course). For some added thickness and fiber, we also added chia seeds!
Chia seeds are considered, by many, a superfood. They’re full of antioxidants, vitamins & minerals, fiber and omega-3’s. They help regular blood sugar and make you feel fuller for longer!
Don’t forget to add a splash of coconut oil for its amazing benefits and a boost of fat! The coconut oil also helps the smoothie bowl base blend up creamy and smooth.
You don’t have to arrange your toppings in neat little rows. Blend your smoothie, throw in all your ingredients and eat with a spoon! You won’t find a better cereal alternative!
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 scoop low carb protein powder
- 2 ice cubes
- 4 raspberries
- 4 walnuts
- 1 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- Begin by placing a cup of spinach into a Nutribullet and adding almond milk, cream, coconut oil and ice. Blend for a few seconds until everything is combined and an even consistency.
- Pour the mixture into a bowl.
- Begin arranging your toppings, or throwing them in and mixing it up.
- For the sake of aesthetics, we added everything neatly to the top of the base. We used raspberries, walnuts and alternating stripes of shredded coconut and chia seeds.
- Enjoy your quick and easy, low carb breakfast bowl!

Dear Rami and Vicky,
I love this recipe as well as so many others that you post; so thank you!
I was just wondering: Since I follow the ketodiet paleo-style, do you think there’s a way to replace that heavy cream with something paleo-friendly (i.e. no diary)?
Thank you, that’s so kind!
And yes, we’ve actually cut down on dairy heavily lately and have been enjoying coconut cream in things like coffee and baking. We’ve also made whipped cream out of it!
Check in your store for canned coconut milk and make sure it’s unsweetened. When you get home, place the can in the fridge and it should separate into coconut cream and coconut water.
