Prep Time 10minutes
Total Time 10minutes
2 to 2-1/4cupsice: smaller pieces/chunks work better than big cubes. (It's a little hard to measure ice, so err on the side of 2 cups, so your shake isn't icy.)
1/4cupcream:heavy cream for low carb OR coconut cream for dairy-free/GAPS
3Tablespoonsliquid low carb sweeteneror powdered erythritol/monkfruit blend OR hardwood-derived xylitol, such as Global Sweet brand (OR, for GAPS: honey or Gluten-free: pure maple syrup); use only 2 Tablespoons sweetener if you like it less sweet
1teaspoonvanilla extract(don't omit: try to include this ingredient because the small amount of alcohol creates the best texture, + the flavor it lends)
1/32-1/16teaspoonpowdered steviaor 5 to 8 drops liquid stevia, to taste: quantity very much depends on which brand you use, so do this, to taste. If you don't want to use stevia or pure monk fruit, add an extra Tablespoon of sweetener.
Add ice to a high-powered blender, such as Vita-mix or Blendtec (Blendtec works best to get a completely smooth shake). It will come approximately to the 2-¼ cup line. Add all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT CREAM on top of the ice, in the order they are listed.
Start the motor on low and increase the speed to medium high, blending for about 1 minute, until all the ice is completely smooth and creamy — so you've reached a milkshake consistency. Then add cream and blend again briefly. Taste. If you want it sweeter, add a bit more sweetener of choice and blend again briefly.
