Sugar Free Irish Cow Custard Shake (THM S)Following a lower glycemic eating plan allows me to indulge in shakes like this Irish Cow Shake any time of day! I normally do these for breakfast or lunch as a quick way to fuel my body for the busy day without having something really heavy on my stomach.

I’ve never been much of a breakfast eater so using these and my Creamy Vanilla Custard Shake or the  Peanut Butter Custard Shake I’m set until my next meal time.


I really didn’t want to add skinny chocolate to this so I opted for the Handy Chocolate Syrup from the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook (I do add a bit (1/8 tsp xanthan gum) to help it thicken up).

I used this Matcha Green Tea Powder to add some wonderful health benefits as well as a good energy kick! You really should try it!! Check out these other 5 Ways to use Matcha Green Tea.

I did layer the chocolate syrup throughout the shake as I was pouring it in the glass… it makes things more fun that way for me!  Being intentional with my food plating and sitting down to enjoy my meals and snacks really helps in my weight loss journey, I savor my meals and my snacks which allows my brain to register the fact that I have eaten and stops the mindless munchies that got me over weight in the first place.Irish Cow (Low Carb, THM S) this chocolate mint custard shake fit perfectly in your trim and healthy lifestyle.

All of the custard shakes that I make contain cooked eggs, you can use raw egg whites if you prefer, but honestly the cooked egg just takes it a bit further in the satisfying creamy category. Protein powder is an optional ingredient in these as there is a enough of a protein profile with the egg and the cottage cheese, but that is your choice. Some of us need the added protein to stay full for the 3 hour gap between meals and snacks.

      Oh my I seem to have totally messed this one up as I was writing it out… I fixed it, it should have 1/4-1/2 cup of cottage cheese in the ingredients thanks so much for noticing and I’m sorry.
