Creamy Vanilla Custard Shake (Low Carb, THM (deep)~S)

This Creamy Vanilla Custard Shake is a yummy summer time treat!

and has an added bonus …. you can make it with raw or cooked eggs…..

The ability to use scrambled eggs or egg whites in this Creamy Vanilla Custard Shake as a protein source makes it really versatile.

While I do recognize the concern about using raw egg whites. Typically when I use raw egg whites, I use the carton-ed ones which have been pasteurized. Working with Brenda to come up with another way of getting the eggs into a shake without them being raw has been a true blessing.

Creamy Vanilla Custard (THM~ Deep S)

 This Shake is extremely creamy like a frozen custard… As written it fits into the Trim Healthy Mama eating style as a Deep S Shake, which means that it has pure fat sources without the ingredients that can stall your weight loss efforts.

Many times we incorporate things like cream cheese and nuts that when used daily can honestly cause a stall. How do I know, it has happened to me.

I had to start really looking at the ingredients I was using and modify some recipes to give both the correct fuel sources as well as limit items which were  slowing my weight loss.

Both Brenda and I have made this shake into cream pops as well as into a shake… and they are amazing either way… adding 1/2 cup of berries leaves you with a Satisfying Shake with a flavor twist.

There are so many options it was hard to choose which one to write about first…

So we went with Vanilla to allow everyone to experiment with your favorite flavor combinations.


I look forward to bringing you more options in the future and sharing all of the yummy flavor combinations.

If you make a different variety I’d love to hear about it in the comments!!

  1. This was amazing! I barely had to share it since everyone was too skeptical. Haha, no problem with that. I did notice that you don’t have a sweetener listed. I added 1 T Sweet blend and a bit of stevia and can’t get over it. Thanks and blessings to you today.

    1. Michelle

      So glad you loved it and thanks for getting outside the THM smoothie glass with us…more variations to come.

      Blessings to you too…brenda

      1. I couldn’t decide what to have for breakfast this morning. Then I remembered this shake I printed out, but hadn’t tried yet. I read through the ingredients & realized it was a complete breakfast in itself. And what an awesome liquid breakfast it was!! My next one may have a bit of nutmeg & rum flavoring. 🙂

    1. Hi Mandy,
      Some people have concerns with eating raw eggs or egg whites, so to combat that we came up with this shake as an alternative to using raw eggs… you can however use them if you desire 🙂

      1. I guess you need to know where your eggs are coming from to be safe… I think I will try it with my raw eggs(since I know where they are coming from) . It looks like a real yummy shake.

          1. I made this shake this morning for our family of 7—We have 5 daughters still at home that are in their late teens and early 20’s. Everyone like it. I used fresh eggs and added maca powder and butterscotch extract….Oh, so very yummy. Great recipe

          2. Judy, I don’t think this is a THM shake, there are 4 gm of sugar in a serving of maca powder….knew it was too good to be true!

  2. Oh my goodness!!! This is the BOMB!! Very satisfying and so creamy. I was able to make my shake in my Nutri Bullet and no problems with the coconut oil emulsifying. My only change was that I used 1 egg white and 1 egg. Thanks so much!

  3. Do you think nutmeg and cinnamon would be good added to this? I just made my daughter a piece of French toast where I add vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and it smells so good! Just wondering if those same flavors would be good in this shake. 🙂

    1. Those ingredients sound amazing!! Let me know how it turns out 😀 personally I’d use about 1/4 tsp of each and adjust from there 🙂

  4. Yum! I used raw eggs and left out the protein and coconut oil since I just finished a huge S salad with chicken, but wanted a little something sweet. I also skipped the vanilla, and it tastes just like my favorite sugar-loaded expensive ice cream. So excited to try other variations of this!!

  5. I love this shake! I add a splash of orange extract and small square of 90% chocolate. I crave having one every day! Sometimes I make it with just egg whites and and leave out the oil, if I want to have something without fat in it. I hope I’m not over doing it because it’s delicious!

  6. I wondered what glucomannan powder was so i looked at your description; it kinda scared me! Is the purpose just as a source of fiber? If so, can it be left out? I’m new to all of this…trying to naturally lower my triglycerides because the Rx gave me severe headaches, and …I’m as lost as a snowflake in a blizzard!



    1. You can leave the gluccie out of this, it does help with the thickness of it… however you can also use xanthan gum in it’s place 🙂

    2. yes the glucomannan powder can be left out of this if needed 🙂 it helps with fiber as well as to thicken the shake, if leaving it out your shake may be a looser consistency.

  7. Do you know the calories, fat, carbs etc for this. I’m trying to keep track of what I eat daily on my fitness tracker and need to add this in. Thank you

  8. Hey there!

    I’ve been looking for creative THM shakes on Pinterest and found your pin. Ok now, I am very skeptical of the egg part, even after reading everyone’s comments. I’m literally SCARED of the cooked egg part, but nevertheless, we shall see and I’ll let you know… 😉

      1. And so it passed! I am blissfully enjoying this custard-like shake. I’m almost convinced I have a THM drinking problem. Lol! Thank you for recipe, it definitely adds a twist to the vanilla shake.

  9. I’ve been making this recently. It’s so good! Today I added nutmeg and rum flavoring for an awesome eggnog shake. Thanks for the inspiration and recipe!

  10. What is the purpose of the 2 T melted coconut oil at the end of the ingredients? I would prefer to use refined because I don’t like an overwhelming coconut flavor, but if it’s health benefit related, I will use the other.

    1. Sheri, I normally use refine myself… but yes the coconut oil does have healthy benefits especially if it’s unrefined. But you can use either kind 🙂

  11. If I use egg whites from a carton, do I cook them first or can I use them uncooked? I have been looking at the recipe for quite awhile and I think I am ready to give it a try. Looks like a great breakfast. Thank you!

  12. Is the calorie count really that high? I know that I am not supposed to count calories, but if you are at a stall, I think it helps to look at them.

    1. I will go in and recheck everything <3 to make sure it is correct -- the calculator messed some of them up -- counting things that shouldn't have been counted (sweetener as sugar)

  13. This is one of my favorite shakes for breakfast. I use 2 boiled eggs instead of cooking the eggs (I always have boiled eggs on hand and it’s a serious time saver for me). I also use 1 tablespoon of MCT oil instead of the coconut oil. This recipe is amazing! If you’re on the fence because of the eggs, try it! Thanks for such a great recipe. I’ve been telling everyone about it. Also for some reason when I try to select 5 stars, it’s only showing 4. 5 stars for sure!

  14. All I’ve got to say is, “You are a genius!!” This is the most amazing THM shake that I’ve had. Especially now that it looks like I’m going to be Dairy free. I left the whey out and it tastes amazing still.
    My baby tries to steal it every time. …It won’t let me rate it 5 stars either.

  15. Would really like some clearer directions as first 5 ingredienrs + oil and ice totally give no action to the sweetener and protein powder. Thanks.😋

  16. What is this sorcery?? I’ve had this recipe pinned for a while now and was too chicken to try it. I’m soooo glad I did! I riffed on your recipe a bit… I wanted something warm so I heated my almond milk (3/4-1cup since I wasn’t using ice) and added caramel extract and 2 tsp of cocoa powder. Man oh man! It’s so so good!! How do I not get lumps of scrambled egg?? I don’t know and don’t care haha! My kids are going to love this! Thank you so much!
