Strawberry Keto Milkshake

Pin recipeFollow us 50.3k

Berry shakes and smoothies are delicious on hot summer days. My mom used to make strawberry milkshake for me when I was a kid. She only used two ingredients, strawberries from our garden and whole milk from a local farmer. To make this shake keto-friendly, I used coconut milk and added some MCT oil which will increase the fat-burning potential of a keto diet. Hope you like it as much as I do :-)

This was so scrumptious! I used blueberries in lieu of strawberries the first go around and the shake was sweet and satifying. I made with strawberries too -- delicious too. Both instance, I added chia seeds to the shakes for added thickness.
Wonderful recipe! Thank you!!!

If I use almond milk instead of water do I have to change the nutritional values/macros? If so, how? Ditto the optional extras? Thanks.
I have your app and notice some recipes also have optional extra ingredients listed on them, which I presume aren't calculated into the nutritional value/macros? How can I work them out?
Thanks!

Hi Vicky, the recipe uses almond milk (the first ingredient listed is always the one used to calculate the nutrition facts). Even if you skip the almond milk, the change will be insignificant (3/4 cup almond milk contains 0.7 g net carbs and 25 calories). If you use all the optional extras and use this meal in our App in the Planner, then it's better if you count them in by "cloning" the existing blog meals and adding the extras. To do that, tap on the recipe listed in Custom Meals > Blog Meals and tap "clone" (top right). Then you can add any optional ingredients to your newly created custom meal. I hope this helps!

Hi. Is it ok to add a scoop of paleo egg protein?

Reply

Yes, you can add protein powder (will help with satiety).

What is egg protein and where can I get it?

I don't have mct. Is there any alternative I can use?

Yes, you can skip it or use macadamia nut oil instead.

I didn't have the oil on hand but i put about 1-1/2 tablespoons of creamcheese in it! Delish! More like a strawberry cheesecake shake!

That sounds delicious, thank you!

Trying this in the morning where do I get chia seeds I have flax seeds will that work and do you think it will taste good or should I just leave it out

Reply

Hi Misty, it's ok to leave it out - or you can use a tablespoon of ground flax if you prefer it creamier Smile I get chia seeds on Amazon (see the link in ingredients).

I made it this morning using frozen strawberries-it was perfect for a warm morning.  Thanks for posting this!  Loved it and will be making this for my kids. Can I mix the MCT oil with any shake? or do I use it as supplement? Thanks!

Reply

Hi Maggie, glad you liked it! I add a tablespoon of MCT oil in most of my smoothies - e.g. vanilla, chocolate that are also on my blog. I'd only use a tablespoon just to avoid stomach issues which may happen with too much of it.

Reply

  which is better to soak the chia seeds first or keep them dry? I love all of your recipes , Thank you!

Reply

Thank you! If you soak them first, the texture may be smoother but you can do either Smile

Reply

Made it love it will make it again and again!! Smile My calorie limit is quite low even on keto but I don't feel hungry (1400 kcal a day) and this recipe is perfect for that!
