It is going to be pretty difficult to stay keto at a place like Smoothie King. The majority of their menu is loaded full of added sugar. The three Keto Champ smoothies are reasonable options but are on the higher-carb side. The smallest ones contain 9-11g of net carbs. Since the average ketogenic dieter consumes less than 20g of carbs a day, this will definitely take up the majority of your carbs for the day.
