A keto milkshake is a frothy creamy drink made without ice cream. Instead, it’s using a blend of cream, dairy-free milk – usually unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk – ice cubes and sugar-free sweetener. All together, they create the most creamy refreshing milkshake without the sugar from ice cream or lactose from milk.
You won’t believe how easy you can make a keto milkshake at home, without using store-bought ice cream. In fact, a typical milkshake is usually made of a blend of ice cream and milk. While it can be easy to buy keto-friendly ice cream and milk in store to make your own milkshake, this is not the healthiest option. In fact, most keto ice-creams, even the healthiest ones, always contain additives like gums, vegetable glycerin and milk protein powder. These three additives are sometimes causing digestive discomfort and are not for everyone. Plus, if you are on a budget, store-bought keto ice cream can get quite expensive. So here is my keto-friendly milkshake version without ice cream that will fix all of your ice-cream or milkshake cravings in a second.
This is a 5-ingredient milkshake recipe, a low-carb milkshake with heavy cream, almond milk and ice cream. This is the secret trio of ingredients to make a frothy, smooth and creamy vanilla keto milkshake 100% sugar-free and low in carbs. It is a less processed version of your favorite drink, made only with wholesome ingredients. Let’s see the 5 ingredients you need to start making this healthy keto summer snack and all the alternatives you have to make it dairy-free, vegan too!
All you need are the ingredients listed above, the combination of cream, milk and ice cubes will mimic the ice cream texture. However, the texture can come out a tiny bit different, depending on how many ice cubes you added. For example, too many ice cubes can make the drink too frothy and icy. On the opposite, not enough ice cubes will leave the drink liquid and runny. So let’s see how you can troubleshoot a homemade milkshake in few seconds.
I get it, you made the recipe and it is a bit too frothy for you. This happen when you add slightly too much ice cubes to the drink. In order to balance the texture to a more creamy, smooth drink, add a bit more heavy cream, starting with 2 tablespoons. Always blend again after adding some ingredients into your keto shake. Taste and serve.
This recipe uses vanilla-flavored almond milk and vanilla stevia drops to bring out all the vanilla flavors without adding sugar or carbs. The others options to boost the flavor consist of adding:
We all love our milkshake differently. For a icy, frothy keto shake simply add more ice cubes, 2 at a time and blend between addition. Repeat this until the texture is the one you love.
You can enjoy a keto shake for breakfast, to break a fast or to skip a solid breakfast. It’s actually a tasty keto sweet breakfast that can replace eggs. Then, as a fulfilling morning, afternoon or night snack to fix an ice cream craving. Finally, as a meal replacement on the go. However, depending on the time of the day you enjoy your keto shake, I recommend boosting the recipe with few extra keto ingredients.
