Diner-Worthy Keto Shake Recipes With Zero Added Sugar

Keto shake recipes are the perfect way to get quick and creamy flavor without the crash. Since they fill your glass with quality fat and protein, they’ll keep you full and focused — and you don’t have to wait until dessert to enjoy them.

What’s the secret to keeping your keto shake recipes wholesome? Swap out the carby milk and ice cream for high-fat, dairy-free alternatives like coconut milk and include creamy protein boosts from pastured collagen peptides and egg yolks.
