Thick and Frosty Keto Chocolate Shake

I love a thick, chocolaty, icy cold shake.  You know, – like a Wendy’s Frosty or a custom shake from an ice cream parlor.  It’s something I’ve really missed while going low carb.
I’ve tried a number of pre-packaged shakes and powders, especially those with protein in them. You know as well as I do that they pale in comparison to their evil sugary cousins.
