A delicious keto milkshake with the decadent combination of peanut butter and chocolate. It’s a creamy beverage that’s dairy free and low carb.
This chocolate peanut butter milkshake is easily whipped up in less than a minute, so it can be ready any time you want a little sweet treat. Plus, it’s sugar free and gluten free, which means it can be enjoyed guilt free!
There are lots of great low carb recipes for smoothies and protein powder drinks out there, but sometimes you don’t want a smoothie or healthy tasting shake – you want the tempting flavors of chocolate syrup and ice cream.
But you also want your keto chocolate shake to be sugar free, nourishing to your body, and totally satisfying which means no icky bloating or carb hangover later.
And that’s what is so awesome about the keto diet; you can have your cake and eat it, too! Or in this case, have your milkshake and drink it, too.
Ingredients In The Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Shake
So what all do you need to make this delightful shake?
Unsweetened Coconut Milk
You might be wondering why coconut milk? After all, isn’t almond milk keto? Well, you can use either. If you don’t have coconut milk, go right ahead and swap it out for almond milk or even hemp milk.
However, coconut milk is just a little creamier so it’s got more of that classic milkshake texture you’re looking for. You don’t need to use coconut cream here…although you certainly could, if you were aiming for an even thicker shake.
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Not all cocoa powder is sugar free, so just check your labels. You can use regular or dark cocoa powder here, depending on your flavor preferences.
Unsweetened peanut butter powder (or unsweetened peanut butter)
There are all kinds of nut butters, powders, and low carb protein powders you can use when making a keto smoothie recipe.
But this is not merely a smoothie; it’s a decadent, creamy, chocolate and peanut butter treat…that’s healthy enough for your low carb breakfast and yummy enough for dessert.
I first tried making this peanut butter chocolate milkshake with both peanut butter powder and regular peanut butter. However, the powder is much easier to blend in, so that’s what I like to use.
Be cautious of the PB2 powdered peanut butter because it contains sugar.
Sticking with the real deal here is part of what makes this keto milkshake so intensely flavorful. But you could swap it out for other nut butters if you have a peanut allergy and still like that chocolate nutty flavor mix!
Never be afraid to make a recipe work for you.
SweetLeaf stevia drops
A lot of people glance right over salt, or skip it on purpose because they think that little pinch of it is unnecessary.
However, it really makes a difference…especially in recipes with low carb sweeteners and/or chocolate.
That little pinch of salt diminishes any aftertaste you might notice from stevia and sugar alcohols. It also gives the chocolate more depth of flavor. So don’t skip out on the pinch of sea salt in this keto shake!

One of my personal favorites is this easy no bake chocolate peanut butter pie, but be warned that everyone is going to want you to share. They won’t even realize it’s low carb! This peanut butter chocolate cake is also really good, but you will have to turn on your oven to make it.
