Low Carb Butterfinger Shake

this low carb, sugar free mock butterfinger milkshake ROCKED my world! OMGoodness!OMGoodness!!! Y’all. I’m back on track with going low carb and ‘good girl’ and the scales show it. But I wanted a special treat to celebrate getting back on track. One that wouldn’t wreck my progress, but that would rock my world. I think this is IT. I got really inspired to replicate one of my favorite naughty treats: a <whispering> butterfinger blizzard.

Now, this is really more of a milkshake texture but the flavor and textures are all there for me. I would not take the name of butterfingers in vain…this takes me there.

Give this one a try, and come back and tell me what you think!

For my Trim Healthy sisters, the full recipe is a meal or snack S, and I recommend using a half recipe as an S dessert.

Note: you will need to whip up a batch of these AH-mazing caramel coconut crunch to give you that yummy buttery crunch. One batch of this fills a quart jar, so you can make a LOT of these yummy milkshakes.

    This shake is going to kill me! I’m almost SICK from eating it….it is SO GOOD! Whoever came up with the coconut crunchies is GENIUS! I don’t even like coconut, but I’m having trouble not just taking a spoon and the jar of crunchies for my lunch tomorrow! Thanks, Gwen!

    So delicious!! The crunch is amazing. The notes state this is a S meal, but says it serves two. Is one serving, about 1.5 cups a meal serving and for a snack you would then half that (1/4 of original amount). Hope this makes since.

      You can consume the entire batch as a meal if you’d like. It’s way too much for me, so I figure it as 2 servings. :) So you can do all 3 cups as a meal, or 1.5 cups as a dessert after a meal. :)

      Do you mean protein powder? I don’t. The cottage cheese contributes the protein. But you CAN add protein powder or gelatin to add an additional boost of protein!

    I could’ve sworn that a while back, you mentioned that if you ate this whole thing, it was a light Crossover…..am I going crazy?

    Instead of choc, try Carnation Instant Breakfast pkg. Also 1/4 banana for sugar and creaminess.

    Alternatively, 1/3 avocado for banana

      Coconut flour is a different animal than almond flour. I haven’t tried it, but maybe ask on the THM groups to see if anyone else has tried subbing it for this?
