4 Drinks53 cals

Looking for some low calorie drink alternatives? Here are 3 Quick Low Carb & Low Calorie Drink recipes under 10 grams of net carbs each. A quick green juice, delicious strawberry kiwi smoothie, and protein packed peanut butter cup milkshake!

All you need for these? A blender!

Green Juice Low Calorie Drink

For your juice, add into your blender 150 grams of kale, 1 ounce of apple cider vinegar, 1 1/2 cups of water, 150 grams of fresh pineapple, 1 whole cucumber, and half of a squeezed lemon.

Blend it all up and pour your low calorie green juice into a few glasses.

There you have it, around 4 servings of green juice all under 10 grams of net carbs each for around $2:00!

Strawberry Kiwi Low Calorie Drink

For your smoothie, add into your blender 50 grams of spinach, 150 grams of strawberries, 1/2 of a kiwi, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil, 3/4 scoop of protein powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum.

Xanthan gum!? Yes, xanthan gum is an amazing low calorie and gluten free thickener! You can find more about it here.

Blend it all up and pour your low calorie strawberry kiwi smoothie into 2 glasses. Each glass will have around 9 grams of net carbs.

Peanut Butter Cup Low Calorie Drink

Last for your milkshake, add into your blender 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 2 tablespoons of heavy cream, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon of a sweetener, 1 scoop of protein powder, 1 tablespoon of nut butter, and 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum.

Blend it all up one last time and pour your low calorie peanut butter cup milkshake into 2 glasses. Each glass will have around 15 grams of protein and only 10 grams of net carbs.

A few tips to make these low calorie drink recipes even better?

Low Calorie Drink Tips

Don’t waste the skin or pulp. Both are packed with a TON of nutrients and fiber. If you still refuse, you can use a cheesecloth to strain them out.

This is also a good tip if you don’t have a juicer since it essentially turns your blender into a juicer with a little work!

Green juice doesn’t sound like a 5 star dessert and it’s not going to taste like one either. However, the health benefits far outweigh the taste and it really doesn’t taste that bad at all. This recipe here is good, way better than most store bought ones (in my opinion).

Every recipe here will last at least 3 days in the fridge and still taste good. Make a couple at a time and bottle them with something that’s reusable like the drink containers listed below.
