With only 5.5g net carbs per serve, this keto turmeric milkshake will keep you full for hours.
It's the perfect winter warmer or summer iced cool-down. Perfect if you are dairy-free or want to cut back on cow's milk.
Are milkshakes keto?
No, milkshakes are not keto because of the high volume of dairy which has 4% carbs. This "milkshake", however, is made from dairy-free milk so the carbs in the nutrition panel are incredibly low.
Cow's milk has 4-5g per 100ml. That's up to 12.5g net carbs per (250ml) cup.
Nutritional values from cronometer.com
One serving is only 5.5g net carbohydrates so this thirst-quenching drink will keep you on track with the daily carb limits that you have set using the macro calculator.
The high-fat content of this shake will keep you full for hours and hours. The turmeric, ginger and spices give it a subtle kick and depth of flavour.
It is more nutritious than a regular sugar-laden milkshake, or that morning cup of coffee.
It is egg free, nightshade free, nut free (depending on the milk used) and vegan. You can use any dairy substitute.
Dairy-free milk to use
I chose to make mine with coconut milk, which thickens to a delicious dreamy creamy milkshake because of the addition of the ice-cubes which helps solidify the coconut oil in the coconut cream.
But you could also use any milk substitute that you can tolerate, such as almond milk.
I have also successfully made it using 50:50 coconut cream:water when I ran out of coconut milk.
You may also use almond milk but always check for added sugars. Buy the unsweetened almond milk.
You may wish to use oat milk or rice milk, however, these are higher in carbs and generally avoided on the keto diet.
This keto milkshake can be enjoyed cold or heated gently to be a warm and comforting winter drink. The keto turmeric milkshake will certainly warm you up, no matter which way you choose to serve it.
All you need is your favorite high-speed blender, a hand whisk or a stick blender. Just throw all the ingredients in together and blitz until smooth and creamy.
With all sugar-free recipes, adjust the amount of your favorite sweetener you require to your personal preference and your sweet tooth.

I really want to try this. Warmed up before bed sounds nice to me.
This "golden milkshake was so delicious"! Even my hubby loved it!
I'm a little confused about the nutrition info: it says to use non-dairy milk, yet the nutrition panel says this drink has 6.9g total carbs, which seems like a lot. Where are all the carbs coming from? I use Almond Breeze, which only has 1g carb per cup, and SweetLeaf stevia, and by my count, the recipe adds up to just 1.5g total carbs, which is great. Just want to make sure I'm not unintentionally consuming hidden carbs. 🙂 Thanks for all the great recipes!
The nutrition panel is from The Keto Diet cookbook. It doesn't state which milk they used, but I did mention that we need to calculate our own nutrition because all the milks and brands vary so widely. I used coconut milk which is higher in fat and lower in carbs. It was superb.
Then what you posted on nutrition is deceiving, you make your reader think they are only consuming 300 calories when in fact if they use a full can of coconut milk like you suggest they are really consuming over 600.
ketogenetic diets are not calorie counters, they're macronutrient percentage based. chill, friend.
I agree the nutritional info is confusing. Which ingredients is it including, and which does it not? If it includes everything but the milk, then where is the fat from the oil? Where are the carbs coming from? Also, I believe that many keto people like me are absolutely calorie counters. Calories are calories and it is very easy to go overboard on a high fat diet. Eating the right macros proportion will still make you gain weight it you are consuming more values than you burn - even if they are fat.
Elaine- Carbs also come from the spices. All spices have carbs along with the carbs in the type of milk is used. I would say, never really use the info given as you should always calculate for yourself. She mentioned to do your own calculation and that it was based on what she used.
I've been wanting to try something like this...just as soon as I find the Turmeric I bought!
This is my pre-bed time snack! So good!
Made it. Love it

I drank this warm the other night, without sweetener and it was just fine 🙂
I'm having this every morning and it tastes really good. I've also tried the Turmeric paste, will have to make that again soon.I'd be thrilled with a cookbook to make my journey easier.
Turmeric milkshake so yummy.
I made this tonight, used unsweetened almond milk as that's all I had. I added a sprinkle of Natvia to sweeten it a little. I also added black pepper, as I heard this helps with the tumeric properties. Verdict: It was a lovely warm, silky drink. I hope it's as good for me as it tastes.
Yes I was thinking about that, I also read that ground black pepper increases turmeric absorption by 2000%
I made turmeric latte once before and absolutely hated that recipe. I couldn't manage more than one sip. This is the first recipe I've found that actually tastes amazing! And no honey too!! Thank you so much ?❤️
I have been making a version of this called golden milk for some time now. It's supposed to help with inflammation. The taste is incredible. It's soothing and calming my intestines
I have several friends that make this LOTS of honey and I always decline when offered some. Now I can have some!!! Thank you. I ❤️ this!!!
Awesome giveaway! Thanks!! ♡♡♡
I love this recipe as well as so many others and would be amazing to win my very own copy of your Keto Diet cookbook
This recipe looks terrific! I'll try it today! Thanks for all the awesome suggestions!

I added sweetened chocolate almond milk to mine and skipped sweetener, it was heaven!
If you're not adding freshly ground black pepper into the mix then you're not getting the bioavailability of the circumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, which kind of negates the other benefits of the drink, don't you think ?
Turmeric, in my opinion, has an odd taste. But this turmeric milkshake is delicious!
Try adding a few strands of saffron and a couple of cardamom pods for a classic Indian taste. 🙂 🙂
I highly suggest you use a turmeric "paste" (or just turmeric with added ground black pepper) with added ground black pepper to promote absorption of all of the healthful benefits of turmeric. Seems the body has trouble taking it up when eaten otherwise. Thanks for this wonderful milkshake idea, trying it out first thing this a.m.!
LOVE LOVE LOVE tumeric so I am whipping this up for breakfast today! It looks awesome.
Two in one drink. Warm milk to help with sleep and tumeric to help with weight loss. Now what more can a girl ask for??
Love all your guides and recipes...wonderful resource for new starters and old keto hands!
I haven't made this yet, but I am going to, this evening, instead of my usual latte. It looks great, and I have fresh tumeric! I'm sure it will be amazing as in all recipes you provide.
Would love to try this one day, the colour scares me a little...
Absolutely loving all of the yummies I'm finding here thank you for all you do.
I have been making my own version with high fat cow's milk, (heated) and it includes a pinch of ground black pepper. I was told this is important but am not sure of the science! I take it to bed and it is very comforting as the weather gets colder.
This is a great recipe to get turmeric into your diet.
Loving the milkshake. Replaced the coconut oil with butter and loved it ?
It is very very yummy and healthy
I'm obsessed with turmeric, so this really floats my boat! Yum!
This Tumeric milkshake is delicious
I haven't made it yet, only just saw the recipe. Definitely getting the ingredients soon & going to try it.

Plan on trying the milkshake tonight!
So yummy! I made mine with unsweetened almond milk!
