Chocolate and peanut butter are two of my favorite flavors and one of the best ways to enjoy them is in a low-carb milkshake. This Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake recipe is super easy to make with common pantry staples. Just throw all the ingredients in a blender and enjoy.
Ingredients in Low Carb Chocolate Milkshake
Most of the ingredients in this recipe are what you might expect: cocoa powder, peanut butter, ice, cream, and milk. There are two that I’ll explain so that you can know why they’re included.
First, you’ll see that I use powdered monk fruit in this recipe. You’re welcome to swap the powdered version for a granulated one, but I use it because powdered acts more like “instant” products and easily dissolves even in cold liquid.
Second, you might be a little surprised and asking yourself what “xanthan gum” is, but it’s the perfect little touch to a recipe like this. It is a keto-friendly way to thicken sauces and cold items like smoothies and shakes all while keeping a smooth texture.
If you don’t have Xanthan Gum in your pantry, I highly recommend it for this recipe as well as others across the site like my keto blueberry sauce, low-carb raspberry sauce, and keto teriyaki sauce recipes.
Depending on your tastes and preferences, you may want to add some toppings to make your keto milkshake extra special. Feel free to add some chopped peanuts on top to carry through the theme.
As I mentioned with the toppings, you can customize this Keto Chocolate Milkshake in any way that you please. Some of my favorite ways to adjust this recipe are:
- Swap Cocoa Powder for other keto chocolate flavored drink mixes
- Keto Chocolate Shake Powder: If you’re craving your milkshake at mealtime, go ahead and use a chocolate protein powder instead of the cocoa powder. You’ll fill yourself up for a meal yet still get that dessert feel.
- Keto Chocolate Collagen: It’s quite popular to add collagen to your bulletproof coffee, but go ahead and add it into your milkshake. You can leave out the xanthan gum then as collagen will thicken things up nicely.
- Swap another nut butter for variety or if sensitive to peanut butter
- These low-carb nut butter options can serve as an allergy-friendly alternative to peanut butter. Feel free to swap it completely for the peanut butter in this recipe.
- Use a keto ice cream in place of the cream and sweetener: I made this recipe without ice cream, but heavy cream, ice, and sweetener are the makings of it. You can use your favorite low-carb ice cream brand if you wish – similar to what I did in my keto blizzard.
Quick Note: Check the label of any products you use, as most contain their own sweeteners. You may need to mix things up a bit first without the called-for monk fruit powder and check the sweetness level. Then, you can add more powdered sweetener if necessary before you’ve blended to the perfect consistency.
