Rich, creamy, and filled with chocolatey peanut buttery goodness, this healthy sugar-free keto milkshake is also filled with a superfood ingredient that will help with blood sugar and digestion!
One of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts is a milkshake (okay, to make it sound better, we could call it a smoothie, but it’s really like a milkshake)!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake
I like the combo of chocolate and peanut butter, but for this particular milkshake, I wanted to make a Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Pull shake – something light that would still fill me up.
(A Fuel Pull means it is low in both fat and carbs.) Don’t know what Trim Healthy Mama is? Check out my quick guide explaining Trim Healthy Mama!
Trim Healthy Mama Shakes
Also try my Cherry Kefir Smoothie for a delicious, fruity and filling THM-E fuel!
One of the reasons I love smoothies/shakes so much is because it is so easy to add health-boosting ingredients to them!
You can easily add collagen for a collagen shake, or add a variety of frozen vegetables to make them smooth and creamy!
Best vegetables for smoothies
A few of the most popular vegetables for adding to smoothies are spinach, cauliflower and okra!
I promise that if you start with a small enough amount, you won’t taste them at all – but you’ll get all the benefits of eating your vegetables!
If you are a Trim Healthy Mama, you already know the benefits of the superfood “secret ingredient” included here. The star is . . . OKRA!
Now, I can already hear it – okra in a milkshake? Ewww, the slime!
But hear me out – the key to using okra in your drinks is to blend it while the okra is still frozen. I promise, I have never felt “slime” in my milkshakes or smoothies when I blended it frozen (and you can’t taste it).
It is also super important that you use a high quality blender to completely obliterate all traces of okra!
I use my Vitamix, and it blends the okra beautifully for my okra shakes!
So give it a try! Even my seven year old daughter slurped this down – and she had no idea it had okra in it (or cottage cheese)! (And I guarantee she would have turned up her nose if she knew!)
Here are just a few of the benefits of eating (or drinking, in this case) okra.
See the full list of the benefits of okra.
- Okra is actually classified as a fruit, but usually cooked as a vegetable
- Okra is particularly high in Vitamins C & K
- Okra has 2 grams of protein per 100 grams, which is something most other fruits and vegetables do not have!
- Okra is also high in antioxidants – particularly in polyphenols, which help to protect against blood clots and inflammation.
- Okra has a strong gel-like substance called mucilage. This substance can bind to cholesterol during digestion, causing it to be removed from the body with your stools rather than absorbed into your body.
- Okra contains a type of protein called lectin, which is currently being studied for its anti-cancer properties.
- Okra is good for regulating blood sugar levels
- Okra is also good for your intestinal health!
How to use peanut flour
The other star ingredient in this recipe is peanut flour.
This lowers the fat content without sacrificing flavor!
How is Peanut Flour made?
Peanut Flour is made by grinding roasted peanuts into a paste, then pressing out the oil. What is left over is then dried and ground into a fine powder!
You can easily reconstitute the powder to make peanut butter at home by mixing a little water, sweetener, salt, and vanilla with peanut flour. You can also make super delicious chocolate peanut butter (that tastes like Nutella)!
Are peanut flour and peanut powder the same?
Yes, in most instances, peanut flour and peanut powder can be used interchangeably. Just check to make sure there is no added sugar in the peanut powder.
Pressed peanut flour is just another word for peanut flour.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Protein Shake
In this particular recipe, cottage cheese and collagen give added protein, while the okra adds superfood power to your “ordinary” and delicious milkshake!
How to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Milkshake
Start by collecting your ingredients, then simply blend them all together in a high-quality blender (I like my Vitamix)!
If you don’t have the collagen, you can simply omit it.
To add even more protein, you can half the amount of Gentle Sweet and add a scoop of Pristine Whey Chocolate Protein Powder!
I use a full ½ cup of frozen okra in my shake (and sometimes more), but if the okra scares you, just start with ¼ cup frozen okra and then you can work your way up from there!
You’ll want to use frozen okra for this recipe. This will keep the milkshake nice and thick and creamy. (I know the photos show fresh okra – aren’t okra pods cool looking? But for best results use frozen okra in this okra shake.)
As written, this is a Fuel Pull for Trim Healthy Mamas.
If you want an S instead of FP, simply add 1 heaping Tablespoon natural peanut butter in place of the peanut flour.

- 1/2 Cup Frozen Okra (I use 1/2 cup, but you could certainly use 1/4 cup to start if you are nervous about it!)
- 1/2 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
- 3 Tablespoons water or Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Gentle Sweet
- 1 heaping Tablespoon cocoa powder
- 2 Tablespoons De-fatted Peanut Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Integral Collagen
- Dash vanilla
- 4 - 7 ice cubes
In single serve blender cup (or regular blender), combine first three ingredients (okra, cottage cheese and water or almond milk) and blend well, until okra is completely blended.
Add remaining ingredients and blend well. I have found that if I use my single serve Ninja blender, I need to start with 4 ice cubes - blend that well, then add a few more.
If it seems too thick, simply add a bit more water or unsweetened almond milk.
