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!
It’s inspired by a soft, spicy gingerbread cookie. I think you’ll agree that it hits all the right flavor notes!
The Way the Gingerbread Cookie Crumbles
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!
Let’s make this Gingerbread Milkshake!Gingerbread Milkshake Recipe Printable & Pin
- 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
- Place all ingredients into your blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.
