With only 5.5g net carbs per serve, this keto turmeric milkshake will keep you full for hours.

It’s the perfect winter warmer or summer iced cool-down. Perfect if you are dairy-free or want to cut back on cow’s milk.

Easy keto turmeric milkshake (dairy-free)

Are milkshakes keto?

No, milkshakes are not keto because of the high volume of dairy which has 4% carbs. This “milkshake”, however, is made from dairy-free milk so the carbs in the nutrition panel are incredibly low.

Cow’s milk has 4-5g per 100ml. That’s up to 12.5g net carbs per (250ml) cup.

Are you ready to lose weight and heal your body for life (without dieting, drugs, or making yourself miserable)?

How to Lose Weight & Transform Your Health for Life

Our free on-demand video training will walk you through how to make this THE year you set health goals…and keep them.

One serving is only 5.5g net carbohydrates so this thirst-quenching drink will keep you on track with the daily carb limits that you have set using the macro calculator.

The high-fat content of this shake will keep you full for hours and hours. The turmeric, ginger and spices give it a subtle kick and depth of flavour.

It is more nutritious than a regular sugar-laden milkshake, or that morning cup of coffee.

It is egg free, nightshade free, nut free (depending on the milk used) and vegan. You can use any dairy substitute.

Dairy-free milk to use

Sugar-free and dairy-free turmeric milkshake

I chose to make mine with coconut milk, which thickens to a delicious dreamy creamy milkshake because of the addition of the ice-cubes which helps solidify the coconut oil in the coconut cream. 

But you could also use any milk substitute that you can tolerate, such as almond milk.

I have also successfully made it using 50:50 coconut cream:water when I ran out of coconut milk.

You may also use almond milk but always check for added sugars. Buy the unsweetened almond milk.

You may wish to use oat milk or rice milk, however, these are higher in carbs and generally avoided on the keto diet.

This keto milkshake can be enjoyed cold or heated gently to be a warm and comforting winter drink. The keto turmeric milkshake will certainly warm you up, no matter which way you choose to serve it.


All you need is your favorite high-speed blender, a hand whisk or a stick blender. Just throw all the ingredients in together and blitz until smooth and creamy.

With all sugar-free recipes, adjust the amount of your favorite sweetener you require to your personal preference and your sweet tooth.

The nutrition panel will vary widely depending on which milk you decide to use and it’s fat content.

  7. This Tumeric milkshake is delicious

  8. I’m obsessed with turmeric, so this really floats my boat! Yum!

  9. It is very very yummy and healthy

  10. Sheryl Sithole says:

    Loving the milkshake. Replaced the coconut oil with butter and loved it ?

  11. Barb Steele says:

    This is a great recipe to get turmeric into your diet.

  12. I have been making my own version with high fat cow’s milk, (heated) and it includes a pinch of ground black pepper. I was told this is important but am not sure of the science! I take it to bed and it is very comforting as the weather gets colder.

  13. Christina Castle says:

    Absolutely loving all of the yummies I’m finding here thank you for all you do.

  14. Tabitha Stewart says:

    Would love to try this one day, the colour scares me a little…

  15. I haven’t made this yet, but I am going to, this evening, instead of my usual latte. It looks great, and I have fresh tumeric! I’m sure it will be amazing as in all recipes you provide.

  16. Jane Jouraida says:

    Love all your guides and recipes…wonderful resource for new starters and old keto hands!

  17. Two in one drink. Warm milk to help with sleep and tumeric to help with weight loss. Now what more can a girl ask for??

  18. Alexandra Robertson says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE tumeric so I am whipping this up for breakfast today! It looks awesome.

  19. I highly suggest you use a turmeric “paste” (or just turmeric with added ground black pepper) with added ground black pepper to promote absorption of all of the healthful benefits of turmeric. Seems the body has trouble taking it up when eaten otherwise. Thanks for this wonderful milkshake idea, trying it out first thing this a.m.!

  20. Try adding a few strands of saffron and a couple of cardamom pods for a classic Indian taste. 🙂 🙂

  21. Turmeric, in my opinion, has an odd taste. But this turmeric milkshake is delicious!

  22. Patrick Sloane says:

    If you’re not adding freshly ground black pepper into the mix then you’re not getting the bioavailability of the circumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, which kind of negates the other benefits of the drink, don’t you think ?

  23. This recipe looks terrific! I’ll try it today! Thanks for all the awesome suggestions!

  24. Niki Heitor says:

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks!! ♡♡♡
    I love this recipe as well as so many others and would be amazing to win my very own copy of your Keto Diet cookbook

  25. Cathy Riihl says:

    I have several friends that make this LOTS of honey and I always decline when offered some. Now I can have some!!! Thank you. I ❤️ this!!!

  26. I have been making a version of this called golden milk for some time now. It’s supposed to help with inflammation. The taste is incredible. It’s soothing and calming my intestines

  27. I made turmeric latte once before and absolutely hated that recipe. I couldn’t manage more than one sip. This is the first recipe I’ve found that actually tastes amazing! And no honey too!! Thank you so much ?❤️

  28. I made this tonight, used unsweetened almond milk as that’s all I had. I added a sprinkle of Natvia to sweeten it a little. I also added black pepper, as I heard this helps with the tumeric properties. Verdict: It was a lovely warm, silky drink. I hope it’s as good for me as it tastes.

    1. Nick Jones says:

      Yes I was thinking about that, I also read that ground black pepper increases turmeric absorption by 2000%

  29. I’m having this every morning and it tastes really good. I’ve also tried the Turmeric paste, will have to make that again soon.I’d be thrilled with a cookbook to make my journey easier.

  30. Aileen D Lawlor says:

    I drank this warm the other night, without sweetener and it was just fine 🙂

  31. James McEvilly says:

    Made it. Love it

  32. This is my pre-bed time snack! So good!

  33. I’ve been wanting to try something like this…just as soon as I find the Turmeric I bought!

  34. I’m a little confused about the nutrition info: it says to use non-dairy milk, yet the nutrition panel says this drink has 6.9g total carbs, which seems like a lot. Where are all the carbs coming from? I use Almond Breeze, which only has 1g carb per cup, and SweetLeaf stevia, and by my count, the recipe adds up to just 1.5g total carbs, which is great. Just want to make sure I’m not unintentionally consuming hidden carbs. 🙂 Thanks for all the great recipes!

    1. The nutrition panel is from The Keto Diet cookbook. It doesn’t state which milk they used, but I did mention that we need to calculate our own nutrition because all the milks and brands vary so widely. I used coconut milk which is higher in fat and lower in carbs. It was superb.

      1. Goto hell says:

        Then what you posted on nutrition is deceiving, you make your reader think they are only consuming 300 calories when in fact if they use a full can of coconut milk like you suggest they are really consuming over 600.

        1. ketogenetic diets are not calorie counters, they’re macronutrient percentage based. chill, friend.

          1. I agree the nutritional info is confusing. Which ingredients is it including, and which does it not? If it includes everything but the milk, then where is the fat from the oil? Where are the carbs coming from? Also, I believe that many keto people like me are absolutely calorie counters. Calories are calories and it is very easy to go overboard on a high fat diet. Eating the right macros proportion will still make you gain weight it you are consuming more values than you burn – even if they are fat.

        2. Elaine- Carbs also come from the spices. All spices have carbs along with the carbs in the type of milk is used. I would say, never really use the info given as you should always calculate for yourself. She mentioned to do your own calculation and that it was based on what she used.

  35. This “golden milkshake was so delicious”! Even my hubby loved it!

  36. I made mine with coconut milk,skipped the sweeteners completely and added some black pepper (to get all the goodness of the turmeric) and some grated tonka bean,which added the ultimate kick to it! It was supercreamy and delicious, I absolutely LOOOOOOVE this recipe,thanks for sharing!!! Will make this for breakfast a LOT now…

  37. Linda Zipf says:

    I have made this for breakfast every day this week using unsweetened cashew milk and a little Virtue sweetener. I love the spices and will be having a warm cup before bed tonight. ❤️ all the Instagram posts/links and your blog!

  38. llc150Lora Lee Carver says:

    Due to being on a strict low carb diet of no more than 20 grams of carbs per day,, I use part heavy whipping cream and part water instead. Nice. I love turmeric and its health benefits

  39. Super Tasty and Super Healthy, I am already in day two drinking the Keto Turmeric milkshake and I love it!!!

  40. Sorry I am late, but better late than never! Dr called I am borderline too much sugar he said low carb diet and bingo- here I Am!

  41. Made shake this am but it did not get thick. Taste was great but would like thicker. Maybe more ice cubes?

  42. This is my new first time making this drink through reading all of the wonderful comments on its taste.
    I used my magic bullet for mine. It really stuck to the side of the cup. Is that normal??? I had a wonderful time scraping it all off, like left over cake batter as a kid, but was just wondering it that was correct. Also, I used 4 oz of Heavy Whipping cream and 4 oz water mixed as base. This was soooooo good. Thank you for posting for the world to enjoy.

  43. I used the coconut milk that comes in a can. Is this wrong? It tastes amazing, but seems really high on fat, as well as carbs. The recipe calls for 375ml coconut milk, which is basically the whole can.

    1. Shannon Lockwood says:

      I did the same… i had the same question.

  44. Christina says:

    This was super yummy! I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk (2g net carbs per 8 ounces) and used Stevia to sweeten. I used 1 tbsp of cold-pressed, organic hemp oil and 1tbsp of coconut oil (the solidified kind, which is the only kind I had on hand… thought it might be weird but it was fine). Even my 8 year old liked it and demanded I make him one too! Stevia sometimes tastes weird in certain recipes, but in this one it really tasted like it had sugar in it! What an excellent recipe when I get a sweet craving!

  45. This is my new first time making this drink through reading all of the wonderful comments on its taste.

  46. The use of Canola Oil in Leanne’s book is very disappointing. It has stopped me from buying it.

  47. Laura Jason says:

    I just tried your recipe and it turned out to be delicious. Its not only delicious but yummy and healthy too.

  48. oh, I really like this recipe with the turmeric. Just pinned. -Anna

  49. Does anyone else have their coconut milk curdle with this recipe? I had no issues the first few times then had two batches curdle…. quite unpleasant.

  50. Josephine cardenas says:

    Just read this , and I am certainly going to try it. Especially to see if it calms my sweet tooth.

  51. John Galt says:

    According to the nutrition label… No fat, 7 grams of carbs, less than 2 grams of protein? It may be healthy, but this is NOT Keto!

    1. Shannon Lockwood says:

      Use coconut milk… you’ll get between 35 to 45 g of fat… thats ALOT of fat! Definitely Keto!

      1. Would love you to please give me the name/brand of coconut milk that has upto 45g of fat. Searched all over and find nothing close. If it exists I want it 😀

    2. Have looked and looked for a non/dairy milk that comes anywhere close to the recipe shown. I wanted high fat content low carbs but can’t find it. In fact coconut milk is low in fat, go figure!!

      1. “Keto-friendly delight! This Quick Turmeric Milkshake is dairy-free and packed with goodness. A tasty twist on a classic treat! 🥛💛 #KetoDelight”

  52. 4 stars
    Made with unsweetened cashew milk, and also added ground pepper blend to help absorption of the Turmeric. Wasn’t sure if I liked it with the first couple sips, but about halfway through the glass, I decided it was OK. I found myself wishing it was warm instead of cold. I’m used to drinking warm turmeric tea, so am definitely going to make this again, but the warm version, and I’m sure I will love it.
