    pint of nick's vanilla keto ice creamThis is a copycat Chick-fil-A frozen lemonade recipe, so of course we have to add ice cream to this keto milkshake! Luckily, there are some keto approved ice creams available to purchase at the grocery store. Make sure you check the nutrition labels on ice cream that claims to be keto or low carb.

In this recipe, we only add 1/2 cup of keto ice cream for the entire recipe and it serves 4 people, so those carbs shouldn’t add up to much.Some of the keto approved vanilla ice cream brands available are:

    My Favorite High Powered Blender

    I recommend using a high powered blender in this recipe – just so you can pulverize all the ice and create a silky, smooth keto milkshake. However, if you just had a regular old blender sitting in your cupboard, I wouldn’t let that stop you from making this deliciously creamy sugar-free frozen lemonade.smooth and creamy frozen lemonade in a blenderMy favorite blender is by BlendTec. It will crush up ice in seconds to create an ultra-smooth milkshake. Other high powred blenders will people love are Vitamix and Ninja. The Ninja blender is the least expensive. I love my BlendTec over the Ninja and if you have ever used a BlendTec blender, you will understand why.
