Breakfast Shake (or anytime shake)


Breakfast (or anytime) Shake

This is from Sugar Free Shiela and she calls it a Breakfast Shake so I'm sticking to it.  I had it as a dessert though. :)  It's good.  It tastes pretty much like a melted shake.  You can make it any flavor you want, depending on which sugar free syrup you add.  I have found that some syrup flavors are stronger than others so feel free to add a bit more if you think it needs it.  I made this in my Magic Bullet but you can make it in a regular blender or whatever you would normally make a smoothie out of. *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

3 STARS
1 serving
4.7 net carbs per serving

3 oz cream cheese, full fat original in the block
1/2 cup egg substitute, full fat original flavor (EggBeaters)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 TBSP sugar free syrup, any flavor
4 ice cubes


Blend everything in your Magic Bullet but ice together for approximately 30 seconds.  Add ice and blend until it is a shake-like consistency.

    1. Woo Hoo! So glad he liked it. Have fun with all the different flavor combos! My Chunky Monkey shake is based off of this as well.

  4. Hi Layla, great blog, a question regarding the shake above- could I use a whole egg instead of Egg Beaters? Many thanks

    1. Hi Alice, a whole egg would work just fine but your risk for salmonella buy consuming raw egg would go up. Just proceed with caution.

  5. can this be made in a batch once a week and portioned for a week? Looking for an alternative to the easy to grab pre-made shakes.

  6. I have no issues using real eggs. Wonder if this would be 2 large eggs?
