Delicious Keto Shake Additions

Whether your goal is weight loss or weight gain, there are tons of delicious additions you can make to any of these recipes to support your goals!

  • Extra Almond Butter– High fat nut butters (peanut/almond butter) that are also rich in fiber help to blunt hunger and keep you full(1). Plus if you are using this recipe as a meal replacement it’s important to have enough fat and calories to satisfy your hunger.
  • Collagen Peptides– Collagen peptides make a great low carb protein addition to these recipes. Collagen is good for hair, skin, and nails, as well as helping with strengthening the gut lining (2). This also makes a great addition to a meal replacement smoothie.
  • MCT Oil– Mct oil or medium chain triglycerides are a great way to get in healthy fats while also improving cognitive ability and focus(3). Just make sure you work your way up and only start with about a 1/2 tablespoon your first time.
  • Monk Fruit– If you want to use these shakes as a keto treat or ice cream so you don’t over eat real ice cream, try adding in a few extra drops of liquid monk fruit or stevia. It will make it just as sweet as a milkshake, but minus all the sugar.
  • Protein Powder– The brand of protein powder isn’t as important as the carb count in this case. Just make sure your protein powder is low carb and high in protein to bump up the satiety of your keto shake meal replacement. We normally use the zero carb Isopure vanilla protein powder.
  • Vanilla Extract– Believe it or not simply adding a 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract really enhances and brings out the flavor of these keto recipes. Check that the vanilla extract you buy has no added sugar or corn syrup and you’ll be good to go!

Tips for the Best Keto Shakes

The best keto shake is one that has all of your favorite ingredients. If you want a keto cinnamon shake don’t be afraid to spice it up how you like. Some of our best keto shake tips are:

  • Adding Extra Almond Butter- Almond butter makes this recipe oh so creamy and the perfect meal replacement
  • Less Unsweetened Almond Milk/Coconut Milk- This is up to preference, but we love a thick shake!
  • Steamed Then Frozen Cauliflower- We know this sounds weird but once it’s cooked and then frozen it looses that traditional flavor and makes your meal replacement shake extra smooth. Add a few frozen cauliflower pieces (cooked first then frozen) the next time you make this recipe.
  • Make it a Meal- Add collagen, protein powder, mct, and almond butter to make your smoothie extra filling.

Are These Protein or Keto Shakes?

They’re both! The base keto shake recipe has about five grams of protein and the other recipes have between 8-18. For more protein simply add in some chocolate or vanilla protein powder. Protein helps to up the satiety of your keto shake. Plus, when mixed with the original high fat recipe you create the best all around meal replacement shake.

If you are looking for a keto shake without too much protein, stick to the original recipes below and don’t add any extra protein. They are all higher in fat than protein to ensure they have the perfect keto macros.

How to Make Keto Shakes

Now that you have your desired add-ins it’s time to talk about the base keto recipe and how we’re going to put it all together!


What makes smoothies so appealing is the ability to be ready in five minutes and only dirty one dish. All you are going to need for this recipe is a blender. There are tons of blenders on the market but our two favorites are the Vitamix (a super creamy blend) and the Ninja blender.


All the recipes we created use our keto vanilla base. It’s gluten free, low carb, and sugar free perfect for all your future smoothie recipes. The base recipe contains just 4 super simple ingredients. You will need almond milk (or coconut milk instead), almond butter, heavy cream, and ice cubes. The heavy cream alone makes this shake recipe taste like a milkshake without all the carbs. If you want a dairy free keto friendly shake, sub full fat coconut cream for the heavy whipping cream. Full fat coconut cream NOT coconut milk, makes a thick and creamy shake recipe without any dairy.

The next ingredients you use will depend on the smoothie flavor you want. We have 5 different keto recipes: blueberry lemon, chocolate peanut butter, pumpkin spice, birthday cake, and tiramisu. The full ingredients and measurements are listed below in the recipe card for each.

Blending it up

A keto friendly shake is easy to make because all you have to do is blend. These shakes taste like ice cream milkshakes, but without any of the sugar. To put these shakes together simply blend the smoothie base ingredients, and the individual recipe ingredients together in a high speed blender. For a thick and creamy shake use less liquid (almond/ coconut milk). Pour the recipe into a cup and top it with whatever you like. We used ingredients like whipped cream, chocolate, and blueberries in the recipes below.
