Sugar Free Chocolate Milkshake Recipe

This sugar free chocolate milkshake will make you swoon!This chocolate milkshake recipe makes me swoon! It’s better than a certain fast food chain’s chocolate frosty drink. And being sugar free and full of protein just gives me even more reasons to have this whenever that chocolate milkshake urge hits. Like many of my other sugar free milkshakes, this one has a secret ingredient that you might not guess. And you might not believe it (I see you making a face!) but give it a shot and I bet it will change your mind.

The addition of cottage cheese gives this shake a creamy rich base, and when the blender stops, you’ll never ever guess that secret ingredient.

This sugar free chocolate milkshake will make you swoon!

It’s just that good.

I’ll give you the recipe two ways: one is low fat and low carb, and the other is richer with the addition of healthy fats. Either one you try will leave you feeling a little bit in love with this chocolate milkshake with absolutely NO guilt! And that’s what healthy eating is all about.

I really like the addition of the carton egg whites, since they add some frothiness to the final milkshake. I’m normally a big fan of pastured eggs, and you can use those if it’s what you’ve got and you’re comfortable using unpasteurized egg whites. The carton egg whites are pre-pasteurized, so I prefer them for this recipe.

Sugar Free Chocolate Milkshake Recipe
This amazing sugar free chocolate milkshake can be made two ways: as a low fat, low carb frosty treat, or you can make a richer version using the healthy fats. Either way, you'll fall in love with chocolate milkshakes all over again, but with NO guilt! Yields 3 cups
Recipe type: Drinks
  • ½ cup low fat cottage cheese (I like 2% Daisy brand)
  • ½ cup carton egg whites, optional
  • 2 tablespoons to ¼ cup cocoa powder- I like theRodelle brand from Costco (affiliate link)
  • 1-2 teaspoons Sweet Blend (affiliate link) or your favorite non-glycemic sweetener to taste
  • 1½ cups ice
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon butter, *or* fractionated coconut oil (MCT), *or* 1 pastured egg yolk, optional
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream, optional
  1. Add all ingredients to the blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Taste test to adjust sweetness- it should not be bitter. If it is, simply add sweetener in tiny amounts until you get it just right.
  3. Enjoy!
This recipe made without the optional fats is a THM Fuel Pull. If you add the optional fats, it's an S recipe.

    Gwen, oh Gwen, oh Gwen! With much fear and trembling I made this recipe. (Cottage cheese and egg whites?!?) Oh. My. Goodness. This is AMAZING!

  2. Joellen says

    Oh, my, yum. I haven’t made this as written, as carton egg whites got shoved to the back of the fridge and were frozen solid. I added whey protein powder to make up for the no egg whites, and it was excellent. So looking forward to trying again with pasteurized egg whitrs instead of protein powder after out next grocery run. Your milkshake recipes always make me happy. :-)

    Enjoying this yummy milkshake right now! Perfect for my “after picking raspberries morning”! I love it and will be enjoying this often!! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us!

    Just tried this with protein powder instead of egg whites and it is very good. Just curious……how much cocoa powder and sweetener do you put in yours? Thanks!

      I like a milk chocolatey version with less cocoa. Sweeteners vary so much, so giving you how much I use wouldn’t help unless you also use a xylitol and stevia mix just like mine. :) I usually start with 2 tsp. and then add a little sprinkle of stevia if it needs more. I always taste and adjust.

    I’m looking forward to trying this! If I only use MCT, would that leave it in FP category? I’m still a little confused about that. I know there’s a teaspoon in the Winter Wonderland sip, which is a sipper…

      I can say this: if I had my own chickens, or had eggs raised by a farmer I knew, I’d be comfortable using fresh egg whites. But I wouldn’t use egg whites from the store unless they’re pasteurized.

    This has become a staple snack at our house! And no special ingredients at all, which is awesome. The eggwhite does a great job of making a smooth texture, and packing in the protein without resorting to whey powder. I thought it might help someone to know that, made with 2 tbsp cocoa, I find that 3 tsp of Pyure organic stevia/erythritol blend (available at Wal-Mart, generally a pretty good 1:1 sub for THM Super Sweet) suits my tastebuds, but if I increase the cocoa I need to add more.

    Hello Gwen!
    I love this SF chocolate shake so much! I was wondering if you’d consider THMifying the Chick Fil A peach milkshake recipe? My husband loves those each summer, but since we have been on the THM plan he won’t be having them this year. (:
    I’d love to be able to offer him a similar one. Thanks!

    Wow! This one was worth commenting on. I made it twice today. Once as a shake and then again for ice cream. It’s too icy for ice cream, but I could see adding fats for some of the liquids to help that. For a FP dessert, it was great! The flavor was so good!
