What are Keto Shakes?

Keto Shakes are being used as a meal replacement and are designed for weight loss. A lot of people replace their breakfast with a keto shake or have them for an afternoon snack.

Keto Shakes, if purchased at a store, can be very expensive. Plus you are not always sure of all the ingredients that are added. That is why I like making them at home.

These homemade Keto shakes are budget friendly and I can change the ingredients to how I want the shake to taste.

Keto Frosty Recipe:

Some people have compared this keto chocolate shake to as a Keto Frosty Shake. It taste very similar to the Wendy’s Frosty but doesn’t have ice cream. It does satisfy your chocolate craving with its smooth and rich chocolate taste.

This keto frosty recipe has the cool, creamy and sweet taste as the frosty that we all love but keeps you within your Keto friendly lifestyle.

What is a Frosty?

A frosty is sold by a fast food chain called Wendy’s. It is a mix between soft-serve ice cream and a milkshake. They come in chocolate and vanilla flavors.

It is so thick that you have to eat with a spoon.

How do you thicken a Keto Shake?

There are many options that help thicken a keto shake. When I am making a shake, I like it to be thick but still be able to use a straw. Here are some of my favorite ways to thicken up my shake:

  • Ice – The more ice you add the thicker your shake is. I have figured out that a handful of ice, makes my shake perfect.
  • Any type of nut butter
  • Avocado
  • Chia Seeds
  • Xanthan Gum – A teaspoon of this is all you need to thicken your shake. Xanthan Gum doesn’t change the flavor of your shake.
Ingredients needed to make a keto chocolate shake - heavy whipping cream, peanut butter, cocoa powder, stevia vanilla extract

Ingredients for Perfect Keto Chocolate Shake:

  • Peanut butter or almond butter
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Stevia
  • Vanilla Extract

How do you make a Keto milkshake?

  • Mix all ingredients together with a mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Place mixing bowl in the freezer for about 30-60 minutes until barely frozen.
  • Scoop into serving cups and serve.

Can you substitute heavy whipping cream with milk?

Yes you can. Using milk instead of heavy whipping cream results in a thick shake. It depends on how much or how little milk you add.

What milk has the lowest carbs?

Almond milk is the best milk to use if you are searching for a low carb milk. You can easily purchase this at any grocery store.

Almond milk is about 1 gram of net carbs per one cup of milk. I use almond milk in my smoothies. It makes the best low carb smoothie.

Variations for Keto Chocolate Shake recipe:

  • Make this drink dairy free by omitting the whipping cream and replacing with coconut cream or coconut milk.
  • You can add chia seeds to this smoothie for more fiber.
  • Collagen can also be added to this drink.
  • Chocolate protein powder can be added to bump up the protein.
  • Add a dash of cinnamon
  • If you are feeling decadent, top the Keto shake with some whipped topping made from the whipping cream.
  • Use Monk Fruit for your sweetener instead of Stevia.
  • I like adding in some Greek Yogurt for some extra protein.

Add your favorite Toppings:

I love to add some of my favorite toppings to my shakes. I try and look at the ingredients so that isn’t a lot of sugar and carbs.

  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Whipped Cream
  • Granola

Do you need other Smoothie Recipes?

Not only do we love this chocolate shake recipe, but we love a good smoothie recipe. I love a good fruit smoothie as it helps to get my fruit in and a smoothie just helps me to feel better. Here are some of my favorites:

New to Keto?

First of all, I know it can seem overwhelming initially. However, once you understand the Keto lifestyle it is very simple.

There is a great book for beginners here that you might want to pick up. It is a really great resource to help get you started on this Keto journey.

Tips for the best low carb shake:

  • If you want a thick and creamy texture you can add in some unsweetened almond milk.
  • Add in some zucchini or cauliflower to mix in some veggies.
  • I will add in some extra peanut butter if I am using it as a meal replacement.
  • Make your Chocolate Shake into a keto bowl. When I am craving ice cream, the chocolate shake frozen helps with my cravings.

  1. I would like to know if you can make ahead and store for the week. Could I make this at night, then place in individual cups?

  2. Ann – Unfortunately, I think that these will start to separate after about 24 hours in the refrigerator so I would not make this one ahead for a week. It’s best if eaten right away. Thank you!

  3. Would it set right if blended in a ninja blender instead of with a mixer and then put in the freezer?

  4. Lol! Never mind. It’s 4 servings and I didn’t catch that part the first time. Thanks for the recipe!!
