Health Benefits of This Cake Batter Shake

Packed With Healthy Fats

Shakes typically fall into one of two categories — protein shakes or ice cream (milkshake) shakes.

This birthday cake shake takes the best of both worlds, but adds in a crucial component that usually falls to the wayside when it comes to shakes and smoothies; healthy fats.

There’s a reason that people are trying to get more fat into their diet these days. As an essential component of every cell in your body, fat protects your cells and organs from outside invaders and potential damage.

In addition, fat plays a role in your immune system, reproduction, and it helps your body absorb nutrients[*][*].



Dessert-style shakes naturally come packed with sugar, but even protein shakes often contain more carbs than they need to. Tossing in ingredients like bananas, mangoes, and fruit juices might give your shake a nice flavor — but they’ll send your blood sugar soaring.

This shake skips that sugar and opts for ingredients like monk fruit or stevia instead — all the sweetness without the sugar crash.

Love that cake batter flavor?

Cake batter ice cream may be off-limits on keto, but this delicious recipe is the answer to your prayers. Picture a combination of funfetti cake mix and vanilla ice cream — incredible.

If you have 10 minutes, then you have time for a cake batter shake.

All you need are your ingredients and blender. Ready?


Grab your blender and add in the heavy cream, nut milk (almond milk works great), butter, vanilla extract, Perfect Keto Birthday Cake bar, sweetener of choice, and ice.

Mix on high until all ingredients are well combined. Your shake should be thick and creamy.


Pour the shake into a large glass and top with sugar-free sprinkles. You can also add sugar-free sprinkles into the mix if you want a more colorful shake.

Recipe notes:

When choosing nut milk to use, try to find one that’s rich and creamy, so avoid the low-calorie low-fat varieties. Cashew, coconut, and almond milk are all great options.

If you want to make your shake extra flavorful, you can top it with some sugar-free whipped cream or mix in some sugar-free caramel.
