While following a keto diet does not have to feel like you are denying yourself all of the sweet treats you love. Quite the opposite is actually true.
You can mix up a beverage that tastes as close to the ice cream shakes from childhood as you can get without all the calories and carbohydrates.
Why Drink a Keto Shake?
Added Protein: Some of our shakes use protein powder as an ingredient, which can help you stay full longer.
Cooling Off: Whether you want to cool your core body temperature after a workout or just relax on a hot day, an icy cold milkshake is refreshing.
Muscle Building: If your shake is made with protein, it can have the added benefit of helping to build, maintain and recover your muscles post-workout.
Nostalgia: People love our shakes because it brings them back to their childhood.
Taste: Many people enjoy them simply because they taste delicious!
Are Milkshakes High in Carbs?

Our Shake Recipes
Protein Milk Shake
It doesn’t matter if I am looking for a pick-me-up drink while heading to work or a recovery drink; this one is hands down my favorite.
1 cup coffee (cold)
1 scoop protein powder (Quest Cookies and Cream is one of my favorites)
1/2 - 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 cups ice cubes (can also be crushed ice)
Add the coffee, protein powder, almond milk and ice to the blender and blend well. Pour it into a glass, top with sugar-free whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
This shake will have only 5 net carbs while packing quite a punch with 21 grams of protein.
Vanilla Protein Shake
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup powdered sweetener
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups ice
Mix all of the ingredients together and blend well.
Looking for a variation of the easy protein shake?
Make it coconut by substituting coconut milk for the almond milk and you will have a delicious coconut cream protein shake!
Peanut Butter Shake
3/4 to 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (no added sugar)
3 tablespoons crystal sweetener (allulose, erythritol, xylitol or monk fruit)
¼ cup heavy cream (or canned coconut cream)
1 cup ice (crushed or ice cubes)
Add all of the ingredients into a blender and mix well
For a variation, you can make this one keto chocolate by adding 1 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder, removing the peanut butter, and drizzling with sugar-free chocolate syrup.
Or, try it as chocolate peanut butter by adding the cocoa to the above recipe.

What Can You Put in a Keto Milkshake?
When trying to keep things keto and control the total carbs so they stay low, you have to be very intentional about what you add.
Some ways to vary the recipe include:
Adding small amounts of fruit (such as strawberries for a strawberry milkshake taste)
Throw in some chia seeds
Use any flavor of sugar-free protein powder you have to vary your recipe
