In a blender, add all the ingredients and blend until smooth and frosty. I always start with 3/4 cup ice cubes, blend and adjust depending on how frosty I want my milkshake.
Taste and adjust sweetness with an extra tablespoon of erythritol or stevia drops. Blend for a few seconds to combine and serve.
Serve immediately in 2 small milkshakes (or 1 large) with a drizzle of melted sugar-free chocolate, a drizzle of peanut butter, a dollop of dairy-free yogurt, or unsweetened whipped cream, and chopped peanuts.
You can store the leftover in the fridge for up to 24 hours. The next day I won't be as frothy, bring back to the blender with a few ice cubes, and serve immediately!
Freeze the leftover in a popsicle mold! It makes a delicious keto singe serve ice cream to snack on.
Hi, I'm Carine, the food blogger, author, recipe developer, published author of a cookbook and many ebooks, and founder of Sweet As Honey.
I have an Accredited Certificate in Nutrition and Wellness obtained in 2014 from Well College Global (formerly Cadence Health). I'm passionate about sharing all my easy and tasty recipes that are both delicious and healthy. My expertise in the field comes from my background in chemistry and years of following a keto low-carb diet. But I'm also well versed in vegetarian and vegan cooking since my husband is vegan.
Cooking and Baking is my true passion. In fact, I only share a small portion of my recipes on Sweet As Honey. Most of them are eaten by my husband and my two kids before I have time to take any pictures!
All my recipes are at least triple tested to make sure they work and I take pride in keeping them as accurate as possible.

The nutrition data is calculated using WP Recipe Maker. Net Carbs is calculated by removing the fiber and some sweeteners from the total Carbohydrates. As an example, a recipe with 10 grams of Carbs per 100 grams that contains 3 grams of erythritol and 5 grams of fiber will have a net carbs content of 2 grams. Some sweeteners are excluded because they are not metabolized.
