Why We Love Keto Milkshakes

  • They are easier than ever now
  • Feels like cheating but still low carb
  • A delicious dessert we can make and take with us

Here’s the thing! If you can do dairy you’re in love with keto already. Between cheese, heavy cream in your coffee and more cheese of course. Now, keto ice cream can be made with almond milk and/or coconut milk. When it comes to store-bought ice creams you will see variations of these.

So, what makes it taste sweet? Well, there is no sugar in the keto diet. What we use are natural sweeteners and sugar alcohols.

Common keto sweeteners used:

  • Monk fruit
  • Stevia
  • Erythritol
  • Allulose
  • Xylitol

Keto sweeteners to be weary of:

  • Xylitol (Brand matters!)
  • Soluble/ insoluble corn fiber
  • Aspartame
  • Sucralose

Listed above in the weary section are highly debatable sweeteners. I have noticed people that were diabetic tend to have glucose spikes from those sweeteners. But, for all when in doubt test them out.

Ingredients You Need

  • Keto ice cream (Homemade recipe or store-bought)
  • Dairy-free milk (almond, flax, macadamia, etc.) or heavy cream
  • Sweetener, depending on ice cream sweetness
  • Whipped cream

Where To Buy Keto Ice Cream

Do you want to make or buy your keto ice cream? At this moment keto is booming. I mean what a time to be alive! I use to make my own ice cream and here is one of the best no churn recipes I have seen. But, to make these recipes you will need a starting point of having ice cream first.

These days I buy store-bought. It’s super simple and there are some really great brands out there. Sadly all aren’t in stores.

Best store-bought keto ice cream brands:

The top 3 are all designed for the true keto consumer with ideal ingredients. Enlightened which I ranked before is made with a weary ingredient that may spike blood sugar.

Vanilla Keto Milkshake

Making the classic vanilla milkshake is the easiest but the one you can play with a little. Maybe you wanna do real vanilla beans in yours. I prefer to be careful with what I mix when I head for plain vanilla because you can really throw the flavor off.

The ingredients you’ll need for a vanilla milkshake:

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Dairy free milk, heavy cream or half and half
  • Whipped cream
  • Optional garnish

cookies and cream keto milkshake

Cookies & Cream Keto Milkshake

This is a very exciting one. Due to Highkey rereleasing their brownie bites with a similar taste to Oreos we can have some fun. The classic cookies and cream flavor is now achievable. Below I will toss some links as to how to get them. And if you buy directly from their website use “sugarlesscrystals” for a special discount at checkout.

Ingredients needed:

  • Vanilla keto ice cream
  • Dairy free milk, heavy cream or half and half
  • HighKey brownie bites
  • Whipped cream


chocolate keto milkshake

Chocolate Keto Milkshake

My personal favorite simply due to the excess amount of chocolate. There are a few ways to do this. You could start out with a chocolate ice cream or add cocoa to your blender. As good as Rebel’s chocolate is I’d buy the chocolate as is. If you miss the Wendy’s frosty then you will fall in love with their flavor. It’s my go to and the best as far as ingredients. You can order but it’s quickly becoming widely available.

Ingredients needed for this milkshake:

  • Chocolate keto ice cream
  • Dairy free milk, heavy cream or half and half
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate to garnish or cookies
