Non-chalky chocolate milkshake?


I’m wanting to create a keto-friendly, non-chalky tasting chocolate milk shake. It seems every recipe I see out there uses cocoa powder, or cacao powder. EVerytime I attempt with these ingredients, the end product tastes more like chalk, than chocolate. Are there receipes out there to get what I’m looking for? Typically recipes I’m seeing involve:

nut milk, coconut milk, and/or heavy cream
Some flavoring like cocoa powder, cacao powder, and sometimes nut butter

Blend in food processor/blender, and good to go. Would be interested in someone could pass along something they’ve had success with. Thanks

Try cacao BUTTER.


Since its the cocoa powder giving it the chalkiness, have you considered adding melted chocolate instead? It’s easy to melt chocolate in the microwave, with just a little butter or coconut oil. I’ve done it with the Lily’s chocolate chips and with unsweetened Baker’s chocolate when making my own chocolate sweets:

You only need about a teaspoon of fat per cup of chocolate. Then microwave it 20 seconds at a time, whisking it in between, until you get a smooth mixture.

A milkshake could just be a mousse with additional liquid?

I usually do a protein shake with a couple of scoops of whey protein and a bit of heavy cream for creaminess. I shake it with ice but you could blend it as well. If you get a good protein brand it’s not chalky at all.


I make a Chocolate Custard / Smoothie. - Depends ho thick I make it…

1 large Avocado
1 large heaped tbl spoon of raw peanut butter
1 tbl spoon of coconut oil
1-2 tbl spoons of Cacao powder or choc Protein powered (this is how I make it runnier or thicker)
400mls of unsweetened Almond milk ( or any other liquid you fancy that’s unsweetened)
