Low-Carb Coffee Smoothie Recipes to Give Your Morning a Boost

When a cup of coffee just won’t cut it, these coffee smoothie recipes are the perfect swap.

Blend up a healthy coffee smoothie on busy mornings, after workouts, or for days when you can’t sit down to a full meal. These are also a perfect accompaniment to any meal plans that call for low prep time without sacrificing nutrition.

Morning fuel without the carbohydrates

Some coffee smoothie recipes pack your glass with refined sugars, instant coffee or high-carb thickeners like bananas and dates — all of which could cancel out the energizing effects of coffee.

But when you blend your coffee smoothie with high-quality fats and flavorings that don’t spike your blood sugar, you’ll stay full and focused. (It’s the same reason why Bulletproof Coffee ramps up your performance.)

These low-carb coffee smoothie recipes are packed with rich flavor, nourishing protein and healthy fats with flavors sure to please any coffee lover. Blend one up in a high-speed blender when hot black coffee just won’t do, and fuel your body for whatever the day brings.
