Keto Milkshake Variations and Add-ins
Peanut butter: Instead of the almond butter you can use the same amount of unsweetened peanut butter.
Extracts: This milkshake is flavorful as it is, but extracts are a great way to add a slightly different twist. Almond extract, vanilla extract, coffee extract and coconut extract are tasty options.
Chia seeds: Mix in about ½-1 tablespoon chia seeds. This will give the milkshake and extra boost of fiber and will add omega-3 fatty acids. Once you add them to the heavy cream, allow them to sit for a few minutes before blending with the other ingredients.
Protein powder: If you want to turn this snack into a meal replacement, add in a scoop of your favorite protein powder. You may have to add an extra splash of almond milk to loosen it up some.
MCT oil: If you struggle with feeling satisfied, that may be a sign you aren't getting enough healthy fats. One way to make this milkshake extra satisfying is to add a little MCT oil powder.
What Milk Can You Have on Keto?
Traditional cow's milk is not the best option for those following Keto, because it contains a good amount of sugar and almost 12 grams of carbs in just one cup! That takes up a lot of your carb allowance for an entire day.
The great news is there are several awesome options to choose from. Almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, and even macadamia milk can be used in equal amounts in almost any recipe that calls for regular milk.
When you're selecting the type of milk alternative you want to use. just make sure it says unsweetened on the label.
Is Cocoa Powder Allowed on Keto Diet?
Yes, cocoa powder is allowed on Keto because it's low in carbs and high in fiber. Make sure you're using unsweetened cocoa powder because some brands contain added sugar.
How Do You Thicken a Milkshake?
There are several healthy ways to thicken a Keto milkshake. For this recipe, the heavy cream acts as a great thickener. Here are some other popular choices:
Mashed avocado: Believe it or not, adding half of an avocado to your milkshake gives it a creamy, smooth texture without much of an avocado flavor. I use avocado in this Berry Avocado Smoothie and it's delish!
Coconut cream: A spoonful of unsweetened coconut cream is a good source of healthy fats and can be used as a thickener for Keto milkshakes.
Xanthan gum: While a lot of people add Xanthan gum as a thickener, it is a tricky ingredient to work with because a little goes a very long way. For one milkshake you should only need to use about ⅛ teaspoon.
Chia seeds: Chia seeds can be used as a natural thickener for keto milkshakes. Add up to one tablespoon to the heavy cream and let it sit for a little while in the fridge. They will begin to absorb the liquid creating a thick, pudding-like texture.
Cream cheese: One of my favorite thickeners, cream cheese is a great way to create a thicker texture. You'll want to make sure it has set out and softened before blending it.
