Low Carb Vanilla Milkshake Recipe
You’ll feel like you are at an old fashioned soda shop when you take a sip of this keto vanilla milkshake. This shake is the perfect summer time treat. It is creamy, smooth and sugar-free. Adding a scoop of protein powder to this smoothie will add extra protein to this meal and help keep for full for hours.
Once you learn how to make a keto vanilla milkshake you can make this creamy shake for your kids as an afternoon dessert or enjoy a glass yourself with a little bit of whipped cream and sprinkles on top. You could even top it with a cherry for a nostalgic feel.
Vanilla Milkshake Without Ice Cream
Although you could use a low carb vanilla ice cream to make this sugar-free shake, this is an option to make a creamy keto vanilla milkshake without using ice cream. Instead, this recipe uses a combination of ice, heavy whipping cream and nut milk to create a frothy, milky vanilla shake.
Sweetener for Keto Vanilla Milkshake
To add a little bit of sweetness to the keto vanilla milkshake, you can add your favorite sweetener. In this recipe, I use Lakanto
brand of sweetener. I opted for the powdered form to make sure all of the sweetener gets dissolved to create a smooth, creamy vanilla shake.
You can substitute with your favorite sweetener as long as it measures cup for cup with sugar.
Although this sugar-free milkshake can be made entirely from heavy whipping cream, I like to thin it out with a nut milk. This will help decrease the calories consumed.
My favorite nut milk is macadamia nut milk
. It is creamy and contains very low carbs compared to other nut milks. If you can’t source macadamia nut milk, you can use any nut milk as a replacement. Try coconut milk, almond milk, hemp milk, pili nut milk or cashew milk when making your keto vanilla shake.
Keto Protein Powder
If you want to add a little protein to your keto vanilla smoothie, I highly recommend the whey protein powder by Perfect Keto
. This protein powder is made with clean ingredients and from grass-fed cows.
Adding protein powder to a milkshake is a great way to add a little extra protein to help keep you full. It’s a good way to get protein in my kids’ diet without them knowing. My kids love vanilla shakes in the summer time and this is one tasty treat I don’t mind making for them – especially if it has a little extra protein. They also love it with a straw and cherry on top!
