An easy keto strawberry milkshake with a creamy texture and delicious strawberry flavor to refresh this summer! You’ll love that this low-carb strawberry milkshake is made only with natural ingredients, no keto ice cream needed, and contains only 3.7 grams of net carbs per serving.

Can I drink milkshakes on a keto diet?

No, you can’t drink a store-bought milkshake because it’s full of sugar from milk, added syrup, and ice cream. However, you can make a homemade keto milkshake with minimal carbs at home to enjoy as a keto-friendly snack.

How to make a Keto Strawberry Milkshake?

It is very easy to make a Keto strawberry milkshake at home with few ingredients. All you need are:

  • Frozen strawberry – you can’t use fresh strawberries to make this keto milkshake strawberry recipe, or the texture won’t be frothy.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – you can also use some other keto-friendly dairy alternatives like coconut milk or hemp milk.
  • Heavy cream or soy cream or coconut cream for a vegan keto milkshake.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Sugar-free strawberry syrup or strawberry flavored stevia drops – this is a must to add a boost of strawberry flavor to your keto milkshake recipe.
  • Ice cubes – the more you add, the frothier it will be. Consequently, if you think your drink is too runny, thicken it up by adding more ice cubes to the blender.


Add all the ingredients into the jug of a high-speed blender and blend at high speed until smooth.

We all have different tastes when it comes to sweet treats and especially milkshakes. Some people love it thicker or sweeter, so adjust the recipe based on your liking by adding a bit more:

  • Ice cubes – to increase the icy, frothy texture of your milkshake.
  • Erythritol – to increase the sweetness.
  • Sugar-free strawberry syrup – to boost the strawberry flavor.

Serve immediately

The best way to serve this strawberry shake is to add some keto-friendly toppings like:

  • Unsweetened whipped cream or whipped coconut cream if dairy-free.
  • Fresh strawberry pieces
  • Shredded coconut
  • Sugar-free strawberry syrup

  • a scoop of keto vanilla ice cream – there are many keto-friendly vanilla ice cream brands available in stores like Rebel ice cream. These ice creams contain xanthan gum that thickens milkshake and smoothies but also adds additives that you may want to avoid if you are after a healthy strawberry milkshake recipe.
  • More ice cubes 
  • Chia seeds – add one or two teaspoons of chia seed to thicken the milkshake and add a boost of healthy fats and fiber to your keto vegan strawberry milkshake recipe.
  • MCT oil – add one tablespoon of MCT oil to boost your fat intake and increase milkshake creaminess.
  • Frozen cauliflower rice – surprisingly, adding frozen cauliflower thickened drinks as much as frozen bananas, without adding as many carbs or sugar.

How to make a healthy strawberry milkshake?

This keto strawberry milkshake is a healthy milkshake recipe for so many reasons! I’ve listed below my top 3 tips to make a healthy milkshake at home:

1. Removing the ice cream

First, to make a healthy milkshake, remove the ice cream! I know a milkshake should be an ice-cream-based drink, but you must cut the added sugar and additives used in store-bought ice creams if you want to make a healthy milkshake.

There are many other ways to thicken a milkshake without adding ice cream, like using ice cubes, coconut cream, frozen almond milk, and more!

2. Focusing on wholesome ingredients

Next, it’s made with wholesome ingredients that are good for your gut and stabilize blood sugar levels, like unsweetened almond milk and stevia drops.

3. Going dairy-free

Finally, if you are after a dairy-free milkshake recipe, this one adapts perfectly by swapping heavy cream for canned coconut cream!
