A traditional milkshake made with ice cream and whole milk may taste delicious, but is high in calories, fat, and sugar. It’s not the best choice if you’re trying to manage your blood sugar levels or lose weight.

If you love the taste of a milkshake, you may be looking for some ideas for a diabetic milkshake instead. This way if you are following a low-carbohydrate diet to control your blood sugar, you can still enjoy the taste of a milkshake with this lightened up, diabetic shake recipe.

Our diabetic milkshake recipe has all the flavor with a lot fewer carbohydrates and sugar. One serving contains a total of 6.5 grams of carbohydrate and only 2 grams of sugar.

An added bonus is the healthy fat from the cashews and the addition of protein powder helps this healthy milkshake recipe satisfy you so you’re not craving another snack minutes later.

Made with unsweetened almond milk, raw cashews, and vanilla protein powder, our milkshake inspired low sugar protein shake is thick, creamy, and packed with vanilla flavor with hints of warming cinnamon and nutmeg.
