Of all of the many diets across the world that can help you to lose weight, there are perhaps few quite as impactful and well-known as keto diets.
Keto diets are designed to force the body to enter into a state known as ‘ketosis’. Ketosis causes the body to burn away excess fat to use as an energy source, causing weight loss.
Under normal circumstances, the body burns away carbohydrates in order to create energy, so a crucial part of a successful keto diet is cutting out carbohydrates from the diet.
The only problem is, this is often easier said than done, and many believe it stops you from enjoying some of life’s best food and drinks.
You’re probably here because you’ve decided to take on the keto diet, but you want to know how to enjoy a classic shake in a keto-friendly form.
Luckily, you’ve come to the right place, because today we are going to take a look at 15 of the very best keto shakes that you can try out right now (see also “Paleo Cinnamon Rolls Recipes“)!
1. Keto Peanut Butter Smoothie
Peanut butter is one of the very best ingredients to add to a smoothie in order to create a flavor that is both creamy and slightly sweet while also being subtly savory in taste.
The only problem is many people believe that peanut butter simply cannot be eaten on a keto diet. However, luckily, peanut butter is actually friendly to keto diets!
You just need to make sure that you grab a totally organic peanut butter that has no added oils, as they are a strong source of carbs.
This recipe uses only five ingredients and only takes five minutes to make! It’s truly wonderful!
2. Keto Peppermint Milkshake Recipe
Did you know that the flavor of peppermint works so amazingly in a milkshake? If you’ve never experienced it before, then you simply need to try out this amazing recipe (see also “Amazing Paleo Brownie Recipes“). Best of all, this recipe is still totally keto despite being incredibly sweet and indulgent.
All you need is some keto-friendly milk, some vanilla ice cream, peppermint extract, and some crushed candy canes! We recommend grabbing alternative milks like almond milk to lower the carb count. And make sure to grab ice cream with low sugar and carb content!
Following this recipe will result in two tasty shakes, so you can easily share in the festive indulgence with some loved ones!
3. Peanut Butter Smoothie With Almond Milk
Almond milk is one of the best solutions if you want to create a smoothie that is low in carbohydrates and friendly to keto diets.
This smoothie utilizes the absolute best of almond milk to create a smoothie that is incredibly easy to drink and yet full of indulgent flavor.
This smoothie is amazing because we swear it tastes just like a classic peanut butter cup, and yet contains none of the keto-destroying carbs that make them impossible to indulge in.
Just make sure that you grab the right peanut butter. Many standard peanut butter brands are packed with carbohydrates which are a result of added oils. Try to grab peanut butter that is totally natural and thus free from added oils and preservatives.
4. Keto Vanilla Milkshake
Sometimes nothing beats the classics, and there is perhaps no flavor of milkshake more classic and iconic than vanilla. Vanilla is incredibly creamy and indulgent but never feels overpowering or overbearing.
This smoothie utilizes the very best of vanilla flavor to create a smoothie that will please your taste buds to no end, but lacks any of the guilty elements like high carbs, or even sugar!
That’s right! Not only is this shake naturally keto-friendly, but it is also totally sugar-free, which makes it even more surprisingly healthy as a treat while maintaining a strict diet!
This shake also only uses a small number of ingredients like sweeteners, vanilla pods, almond milk, and cream. This creates a simple treat that you can make in practically no time at all and that you won’t see any lasting impacts from!
5. High-Protein Lemon Cheesecake Smoothie
This smoothie utilizes eggs to provide the drink with a great sense of creaminess while remaining keto friendly.
Luckily, you don’t have to worry about the smoothie having an overall ‘eggy’ taste, as the flavor of the lemon and vanilla help to totally whisk you away to flavor heaven. Just make sure to use pasteurized eggs for your own safety!
6. Keto Chocolate Shake
What other flavor could possibly compare when it comes to being iconic quite like chocolate?
Just behind vanilla in terms of sheer popularity is chocolate, and while you may think that you’d have to cut out chocolate indulgence completely on keto, this shake proves that you can still easily enjoy the taste of chocolate without having to snack on it!
This recipe will show you how to create a keto-friendly shake that is simply full of chocolate indulgence so you can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy as the creamy flavor spreads across your palate!
Perhaps best of all, this recipe actually uses very few ingredients, and is very affordable and quick to make, saving you time and money!
7. Keto Avocado Smoothie With Coconut Milk, Ginger, And Turmeric
Avocado makes for a perfect base for a smoothie because it is naturally very creamy, and full of vital fats that are perfect for immune system function.
The ingredients included in this shake are also noted for their anti-inflammatory benefits that help to settle your stomach.
The use of ginger and turmeric helps to add a slight fiery taste to the smoothie that makes it even more delicious.
8. Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Chocolate and peanut butter go together so well that it almost feels like magic. This smoothie utilizes the creamy sweetness of chocolate and the slight savoriness of peanut butter to create a smoothie that will satisfy all of your tastebuds and may even have you going back for more!
Make sure to go for low-carb versions of all of the necessary ingredients to make them even more healthy!

Not only do blueberries taste excellent, but they also have a number of proven benefits such as bone strengthening and improvements to eye-sight. This is one of the easiest smoothies on this list to make, so why not try it out?
10. Keto Banana Smoothie
Bananas are noted for their many benefits that make them a perfect thing to add to a keto smoothie. They are full of natural proteins that keep you energized. We also recommend adding spinach to this smoothie for a bit of extra flavor sensation!

Avocado, apple, and coconut mix together far better than you may otherwise expect, and this smoothie brings out the very best of all of them to create something indulgent that doesn’t make you feel guilty!
The creaminess of the avocado blends greatly with the sharp taste of apple, and the earthy taste of coconut.
13. Mango Avocado Keto Smoothie
This smoothie will take you a mere 5 minutes to make, and soon you will be whisked away to a tropical paradise when the first drop of this keto smoothie hits your tongue. It’s so fresh and sweet tasting, and it is simply beautiful!
14. Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
One of the best childhood flavors is that of an orange creamsicle! There’s no sugar needed to bring out the sweetness of this recipe, as it instead makes use of plain yogurt, sugar-free honey, vanilla, and a bit of mandarin flavor! It’s pure magic!
15. Keto Lemon Cream Pie Smoothie
Lemon and cream go together so well, so why should the keto diet need to come between the two ingredients that almost seemed made for each other?
