Ingredients For Low Carb Milkshakes
The ingredient list for low carb milkshakes is a littttle different that traditional milkshakes, as we’ll be cutting out all those high sugar/carb add ins — but don’t worry, they’re EVERY BIT as delicious!
Here’s what you should grab to get started, and some suggested swaps:
Believe it or not, traditional cow’s milk is high in carbs, so we’ll use low carb milk instead.
Your options here are coconut or almond milk (for a lighter version), OR, higher fat and creamier low carb milkshakes made with full fat coconut milk, or half almond milk, half heavy cream.
This is the most important ingredient in our milkshakes, as it brings on the sweetness and chocolaty flavor.
Most protein powders are sweetened, but if you’d like to kick it up a notch, add a touch of your favorite keto sweeteners. My sweetener of choice is erythritol.
Avocados are creamy, full of fiber, crazy low in net carbs, and make for the perfect addition to our low carb milkshakes. Opt for haas over Florida avocados, as they’re significantly creamier and more delicious 🙂
