Why this strawberry coconut smoothie rocks!
It’s a coconut yogurt smoothie that tastes great!
If you have never tried strawberries and coconut together, you are in for a treat.
There is something about the mixture of the flavors that makes them taste so fresh.
You could be fooled in to thinking you were on an island paradise!
The combination of flavors makes this strawberry coconut yogurt smoothie particularly great on a hot summer’s day, but it’s equally good if you want something for dessert, but need to make sure it not only tastes great but is healthy.

Having only 3 ingredients + water, this keto strawberry coconut smoothie with chocolate is super-simple to make.
The other great thing is there is no mess involved!
Strawberries, especially frozen, are not messy, coconut yogurt comes in a tub, and chocolate comes in bars!
No mess makes for a kitchen that is easy to keep clean.
That also means this can become a go-to Keto smoothie quite easily.
We all know how annoying it is to have a long food preparation process, especially when you need things to be easy in order to stick to your diet.
Well, when it’s as simple as this, you’ll have no problems sticking to your diet!
It’s a Keto strawberry coconut smoothie that is good for you!
Being a fruit, we all know that strawberries are good for you.
According to BBC Good Food, they may support heart health because of their colorful pigments (anthocyanidins), may regulate blood sugar, may be cancer protective (due to their polyphenols), and may help with weight management and type 2 diabetes due to their low GI status and their polyphenols.
On top of this, coconut yogurt is high in vitamin D, calcium, and vitamin B12.
Just be sure to get a Coconut Yogurt that is organic and pure! As mentioned, I like So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative Unsweetened, particularly for this recipe, as it is low-carb.
But it is also made with organic coconut milk, which is fab. (PS Did you know you can make your very own organic coconut milk? It’s really easy to do! Just check out my recipe for organic coconut milk here!)
This strawberry coconut yogurt smoothie is versatile – Tips and swaps!
This coconut smoothie recipe is super-versatile.
As strawberries and coconut go so well together, you can mix and match them as you please.
Just add more! (Just be sure not to go over your net carb limit if you are on a Keto diet!)
Like Coconut Yogurt? Great! Add more! If you are a fan of the dark chocolate, go ahead and add more of that… Especially if you like the fun texture that comes with it when you have the smoothie!
You can use fresh or frozen strawberries, but I recommend frozen strawberries for this one.
That’s because frozen strawberries make the smoothie cool, which makes the coconut yogurt even better, and gives the strawberry coconut smoothie more of a fresh, island flavor!
Lastly, you can use any kind of chocolate you like.
I simply recommend 90% dark chocolate for this because that is naturally lower in carbs, which is good if you are particularly interested in the Keto element of this keto strawberry coconut smoothie.
I recommend Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate, as it is very low in net carbs.
Keto Strawberry coconut smoothie with chocolate recipe
Ingredients you will need
- Strawberries (preferably frozen, but you can definitely use fresh strawberries)
- Coconut yogurt – Note that not all coconut yogurts are created equal. Some are high in carbs (from added sugar), some are not pure coconut yogurt and are made with dairy products, and so on. Make sure you look out for one that suits your needs. I like So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative Unsweetened, as it checks in at 4.1g net carbs per 100g, and is made with Organic Coconut milk (check out my recipe here on how to make your own homemade organic coconut milk).
- Dark chocolate. – If you are on a Keto diet, the darker the chocolate is, the better. I like Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate, as it is very low carb.
Firstly, prepare your ingredients.
If you are using frozen strawberries, be sure to blend them first in to a kind of crushed ice form, so that they blend well into the final strawberry coconut smoothie.
Add the yogurt.
If using whole pieces of chocolate, crush them or break them as small as you can so that they blend well in to the final smoothie. Then add them.
Finally, add the water.
- Strawberries (fresh or frozen) - 100g / 3.53oz / 2/3 cup
- Coconut yogurt - 100g / 3.53oz / 2/5 cup
- Dark chocolate (I used Lindt 90% dark chocolate) - 10g / 1 piece
- Water - 200ml / 7fl oz
- If using frozen strawberries, blend them first in to a crushed ice. This helps the strawberries to mix.
- Blend the chocolate in to a powder to help it mix.
- Add the remaining ingredients, including the water.
Be careful what coconut yogurt you use. Some have high a carbohydrate content. If you are on a low-carb diet, be sure to use a coconut yogurt with a low net carb value.
