How to Make a Thick Milkshake (Like a Frosty) – Diabetes Daily

Last weekend, I was in the mood for chocolate ice cream. I looked at my creamy chocolate frosty recipe which is an easy single-serving recipe. So, it worked out perfectly! It was enough to get rid of the craving but not so much to have leftovers and be tempted.

The original recipe is modified slightly for this keto milkshake. I chose to use dark cocoa because I prefer it over regular, and I replaced almond milk with canned coconut milk as well.

Another thing I changed was to cut the serving size in half. The carbs in the original recipe are a lot more than I wanted just to satisfy my craving for chocolate ice cream.

A great thing about this recipe is that you don’t need an ice cream maker. The only kitchen appliance needed is a stand or hand mixer – if you don’t count the freezer.


Dark Chocolate Thick Milkshake

Making thick homemade milkshakes like the fast-food restaurants is easy to do. Try this thick and rich low-carb dark chocolate frosty milkshake!

Calories 302 kcal per serving


  • 6
    heavy whipping cream
  • 5
    canned coconut milk

  • teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • 2
    unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • 2
    low carb sugar substitute
    or other sugar substitutes


  1. Start whipping cream with a mixer until soft peaks form.

  2. Slowly add the remaining ingredients.

  3. Continue beating until stiffer peaks form.

  4. Put the mixture in the freezer.

  5. After 20 minutes, remove it from the freezer and stir with a fork to break up frozen areas around the edges.

  6. Keep checking the mix every 20 minutes and stir until it’s reached the right consistency.

Recipe Notes

If you don’t like dark chocolate, just swap it out for your favorite kind. Milk chocolate or regular cocoa powder will work too.

Add some sugar-free whipped cream and chocolate syrup on top for a little fun!

If you don’t want it to be too thick, just take it out of the freezer earlier. The longer it stays in the freezer, the thicker it becomes.

Use a stand mixer or a hand-held electric mixer. You could mix this by hand, but it will take so much longer. I love my stand mixer and use it all the time!

The shake will get rock hard if left in the freezer. So, if the milkshake is completely frozen, let it sit out at room temperature before eating.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer. It will stay fresh for up to 6 months.
