Add a squirt of sugar-free chocolate syrup, and it’s just like you’re enjoying a Starbucks Thin Mint Frapp but without all of the carbs—YUM!
- You could also add in some chunks of sugar-free dark chocolate to make a mint chocolate chip version of this keto shake.

And there you have it! So easy to make and so yummy to enjoy! Everyone will slurp up this keto shamrock shake the moment it’s finished blending.

Check out what my teammate had to say about this keto shake:
“I’m not that big of a shake person, but this was spectacular! The mint flavor was delicious and refreshing, but not too overwhelming and the consistency of the shake was perfectly thick and creamy. It’s crazy how low-carb this dessert drink is! I made one for my kids too and they drank it in less than 10 minutes!
I initially went with 3 tablespoons of erythritol confectioners but added in a 4th tablespoon to make it just a smidge sweeter and it tasted fantastic!”
