Gingerbread Milkshake

gingerbread milkshake recipe

Baby, it’s cold outside! So WHY am I making a milkshake? Because it’s a gingerbread milkshake! That makes it a seasonal flavor, and totally legit. Just like my Frozen Eggnog Milkshake that’s my other favorite this time of year. And yeah…even the Peppermint Chip counts too.

Anything that keeps me out of the drive through line at Red Robin or Chick-fil-A makes me happy, but ESPECIALLY if the recipe happens to be sugar free, protein packed, and TOTALLY delicious. And this one is!

Gingerbread Milkshake Recipe

This Gingerbread Cookie milkshake knocks my socks off with it’s creamy vanilla goodness, and the spicy warm kick that hits just a split second after you take that first sip. It’s heaven in a glass!gingerbread milkshake recipe (6 of 6)

It’s inspired by a soft, spicy gingerbread cookie. I think you’ll agree that it hits all the right flavor notes!

I even developed an AMAZING and quick gingerbread cookie crumble topping to garnish it with that I’m sharing with my weekly newsletter subscribers. I love to share special little things with them from time to time, because they’re my peeps!

An Honorable Mention for Your Gift List

I also have to gush for just a minute about the BEST gift I got last year. My Mother in Law bought me this whipped cream dispenser, and it’s the BOMB! I can whip up (get it?) vanilla stevia sweetened whipped cream in no time flat.
Stevia plays SO nicely with whipped cream. I can even use my favorite brand of cream, and flavor it any way I want to. I HIGHLY recommend this if you love the spray whipped cream. :) The charger  refill cartridges cost only .50 each, so it’s VERY cost effective to use. Plus, you can use LOTS more whipped cream if it’s sweetened with stevia!

Gingerbread Cookie Milkshake
This yummy spicy milkshake is a seasonal treat that's good any time of year. It's based on the flavors of a gingerbread spice cookie, and it's sugar free and packed with protein! To get the Cookie Crumble recipe, head over tho the post on my website and subscribe.
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ½ cup low fat cottage cheese (I love Daisy 2%)
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons Sweet Brown Sugar Sub
  • 1/32 teaspoon stevia extract, aka 1 "doonk"
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon powdered ginger, to taste- mine was not as strong so 1 tablespoon worked great here. If yours is fresher or stronger, start with 1 teaspoon.
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of cloves and nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups ice cubes
  • 1½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  1. Place all ingredients into your blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Taste and adjust sweetness and spice to your liking.
  3. Garnish with stevia sweetened whipped cream, and optional gingerbread cookie crumbles.
This is a THM FP recipe if you skip the whipped cream topping. If you want to make it an S, you may sub ¼ cup of the almond milk with heavy cream or half & half.

    I received an email today offering me an exclusive recipe for Gingerbread Cookie Crumbles and also the Gingerbread Milkshake. I was able to pull up and print the crumbles recipe but I can’t seem to access the milkshake recipe. The link shows but nothing happens when I click on it. I really want the Milkshake recipe! :) Can someone help?

    Thank you!

    Oh. Em. Yummy GOODNESS!!! Sipping (GULPING) it right now…seriously? SERIOUSLY?! This is GOOD for me?!!! And it’s a FP?!!! Thank you, Gwen! You are my new best friend. Btw, I don’t have any molasses to make the brown sugar, so I used 2 doonks of stevia and a few drops of maple extract. Mmmmmm so good!!!
