Have you checked the recipe room? Its' not a milkshake, but I've heard some people make a root beer float by adding a little heavy cream to diet root beer.

I guess for a true milkshake you would use low carb icecream and carb countdown (or other lowcarb milk). put the ice cream in a blender with a bit of milk (not too much) and blend. add more milk as needed to get consistency you like.

I make a breakfast shake that is more like a creamy smoothy (based on SugarFreeSheila's recipe...hope you don't mind me posting!)

1/4 c. heavy cream
1/2 c. egg beaters
3 oz cream cheese (in SFS' recipe, I omit for the most part)
Da Vinci flavor of choice
Another option: add peanut butter
2 tbsp ground flax (I use this for my shake, you can omit or reduce. It does seem to help thicken the shake a bit).
Ice
Blend

I do one - once in a blue moon - here's what I do -

1/2 cp of heavy cream
3/4 cp COLD water
1 cp Ice cubes
1 or 2 packets of Splenda (to taste)
3 or 4 fresh strawberrys (leave the fruit out if you want a vanilla shake or, just use the flavored syrups)
Vanilla extract OR - DaVinci's flavored syrup - vanilla, banana -

Put all in blender and whip! MMM, mmmm

I make a milkshake with protein powder every morning for breakfast:

1 cup Low carb milk
1-2 scoop protein powder, as directed on package
1- 2 oz. cream cheese
ice cubes


Mix the milk and protein powder in a blender at low speed a few moments. Add the cream cheese, increase the blender speed and run till the cream cheese is well incorporated. Add 4-6 ice cubes to start, increase the speed to high or liquify, and add more ice until the drink is as thick as you like. Add a splash of sf syrup if you need it to taste a little sweeter.

The result is quite creamy tasting and about as low carb as you can get without going overboard with lc ice cream, etc. I have one for a snack if I feel hungry and also haven't had my protein ration for the day.
