Milkshake and Blueberry

Nothing ushers in the summer quite like a delicious, cold, and refreshing beverage. It just makes everything about the heat feel so much more worth it.

One thing that really kicks off my summers is a delicious milkshake. My Blueberry Milkshake is the perfect example of how to keep cool on a hot day while still focusing on your health.

It has only a few ingredients and can be enjoyed by anyone! 

Let’s be honest, I eat these year round and don’t just stick to eating them during summer. Milkshakes and other summer desserts like these Strawberry Keto Fat Bombs with Chocolate or Keto Maple Pecan Ice Cream are eaten regularly around my house.

It doesn’t have to be summer for use to dig into something cold. It could be fall and we will still be enjoying a tasty keto milkshake.

Tips and Variations

  • Storage - This blueberry milkshake recipe will not store well. It gets thick and starts to take on a strange texture, in my opinion. It’s best to drink it immediately upon mixing it up.
  • Use other fruit - If you aren’t fond of blueberries, you can always use another fruit in the same amount instead. Some other great options for keto are blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, etc.
  • Use all almond milk - If you need to go dairy-free or don’t have any heavy cream on hand, you can use all almond milk for the recipe. Do note that this will change up the thickness of your keto blueberry milkshake. 
  • Almond milk substitute - The almond milk in this recipe for blueberry milkshake is to ensure the beverage doesn’t get too thick in the mixing process. If you don’t have any on hand, you can use a bit of water or another milk similar to almond milk.
  • Use keto whipped cream - You can use a hand mixer and beat heavy cream until it gets thick and use this to top your blueberry milkshake.
  • Make it thinner - If you want your milkshake thinner, use more almond milk.
  • Make it thicker - If you like a really thick shake, use more heavy cream and less almond milk.
  • Can I use fresh blueberries? - If you use fresh blueberries, you’ll want to use the substitute for the heavy cream. This is because blueberries naturally have a lot of pectin in them. This causes curdling of the cream and sometimes gelling.

Common Questions About Blueberry Milkshake

Do Blueberries Curdle Milk?

Blueberries and many other acidic fruits have a tendency to curdle milk. Pectin, which is a chemical naturally found in blueberries, is also known to gel things up. However, frozen blueberries help combat this curdling issue, which is why I use them in this recipe.

This is also why I suggest not storing the drink and consuming it immediately upon mixing. This gives your milkshake the best outcome. If you want to skip the heavy cream in this recipe, this will remove any issues of curdling as well.

Why Do My Smoothies Turn to Jelly?

Gelling can occur if certain ingredients are added to the smoothie too soon, like chia or flax seed. Blueberries contain a lot of pectin, which can also cause gelling to occur in fresh berry smoothies.

Since this recipe uses frozen blueberries, you won’t have to worry about any jelly textures. You can also follow the tips above for substituting out the heavy cream if you don’t want to involve dairy and avoid any chance of curdling.

In general, for all fruit smoothies, it’s best if they’re consumed right after mixing for the best results.
