Low Carb Smoothie Ingredient Notes
The ingredient list is pretty standard, but there are a few items I’d like to point out:
I use erythritol as the sweetener in this low carb milkshake. It’s optional but why skip it? Erythritol is a zero-calorie sweetener that doesn’t spike blood sugar. Plus, it offers a sensational cooling effect that pairs nicely with your milkshake!
It’s important to make sure you like the flavor of your protein powder. If you don’t like it by itself, then you won’t like it in your low carb milkshake.
Adding sugar free chocolate syrup and whipped cream are optional (although, I don’t know many who’d voluntarily skip this step!!).
Lastly, you can toss a handful of greens into your milkshake (keep reading before you crinkle your nose). The protein powder will mask the flavor and you’ll never taste it! It’s a good way to sneak in some greens.
Tools To Make
Making this creamy, delectable low carb milkshake is simple – all you need is a blender!
For bonus points: on a hot days I love to put my low carb milkshake in a frozen mug. It really takes it to the next level.
Storing your low carb milkshake is not recommended (it would disappear anyway). Since it only takes a couple of minutes to make and there’s virtually no mess involved, its best to blend it up right before you’re ready to enjoy it!
Can You Freeze This?
Freezing your milkshake will make it hard to sip — I suggest prepping the solid milkshake ingredients in a small resealable bag, and tossing that in the freezer. Next time you’re craving a milkshake, just toss it all in the blender with some milk, and you’ll be sipping in no time!
Cutting even more carbs out of this milkshake is possible if you omit the avocado and add more ice. Avocados are extremely low in NET carbs (due to their fiber content).
Making low carb drinks in this manner gives you a lot of flavor variety. You can opt for chocolate, vanilla or any low carb fruit flavor that floats your boat!
What Low Carb Fruit Can I Add To This Milkshake?
Well, berries are the lowest carb fruits and they make phenomenal milkshakes! I have a recipe for a low carb strawberry smoothie that’ll knock your socks off! You can also make a low carb blueberry smoothie, raspberry, coconut…the list goes on and on.
Could This Make For A Healthy Breakfast?
Absolutely! This low carb milkshake would make an awesome healthy breakfast because it’s full of protein! Dessert for breakfast — how cool is that?
If you’re really looking for something to up the nutrition ante, try my low carb green smoothie. It’s a beautiful blend of nutrition and taste, plus it’s a nice change from the traditional green smoothies in other recipes.
How Can I Make This Into Low Carb Meal Replacement Shakes?
This delectable low carb protein shake is delicious and nutritious enough to be a healthy low carb breakfast. It’ll fill you with that warm and fuzzy feeling while fueling your entire morning right through lunch.

Can I Make This Low Carb Shakes More Creamy?
This low carb milkshake is pretty creamy to start with if you don’t make any substitutions. You won’t believe what the avocado does for this milkshake…
BUT, I also have a low carb peanut butter smoothie that’s so creamy you’ll want to eat it with a spoon and that’s no lie!
Low Carb Milkshakes
- Toss all ingredients in the blender and blend away!
