  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • With an electric or stand mixer on high speed, beat egg whites to soft peaks and then add vanilla. Continue beating to stiff peaks.
  • Add in the confectioners sweetener and keto chow and then fold mixture with spoon or rubber spatula until it’s nice and creamy. It will limp together at first, just keep stirring. It will reduce down a lot by folding which is ok.
  • Add to piping bag and pipe circles onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  • Allow cookies to cool for at least 30 minutes. They will harden as they cool.

Higher Altitude Instructions:

  • With an electric or stand mixer with whisk attachment on high speed, beat egg whites to soft peaks and then add vanilla. Continue beating to stiff peaks.
  • While the mixer is still whipping on high, add in the confectioners sweetener a little bit at a time and mix thoroughly between additions. Using the same method, add keto chow a bit at a time. The mixture will reduce down some, but let it keep whipping on high until fully mixed. Make sure to continue whipping while adding sweetener and keto chow. Only stop to scrape the sides once or twice.
  • Add to a piping bag and pipe circles onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cookies should be golden brown and puffed.
  • For a crisper cookie, lightly oil a foil lined cookie sheet and pipe cookies onto the foil.

🍦 Flavor of the week: Get 10% off Vanilla Keto Chow bulk packs May 11-17


Until May 17 you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of the Vanilla Keto Chow. Normally, the Vanilla is $70 for 21 meals, this week it’s discounted down to $63.00 – that’s only $3.00 a meal!

Vanilla is a really versatile flavor and lends itself to all kinds of hacking and tomfoolery =) Some time ago, in a thread in the KetoChow subreddit, we had a bit of awesomeness from MrCharismatist about Vanilla:

What’ll really blow your mind is that all you need is Vanilla and some bottles of Torani sugar free syrup.

Vanilla + Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough syrup is fantastic.

Vanilla + Orange tastes strangely like Froot Loops in a good way.

Vanilla + Red Raspberry is dead on “Red Snow Cone”.

As to Chicken Soup, there’s no need to overthink it and boil water in a kettle to a certain temp. As long as it’s still warm after you put cream or butter in it, it’s fine. My kitchen sink is shockingly hot and I just use it straight.

I’ve got six weeks of chocolate, sevenish of chicken Soup left. When I reorder it’s going to be all Vanilla and Chicken Soup.

To which LavernicaDeLuca replied:

Absolutely agree with the vanilla is all you need. It’s an amazing base for adding flavors. I love adding peanut butter to vanilla, it’s a dream come true for a peanut butter fanatic like me, I just use PB as the oil, it’s amazing. And of course, vanilla is great on its own too. It’s definitely my favorite KC.

There’s also this entire thread just about Vanilla Keto Chow and how versatile it is, give it a read. Check out the flavor reviews of Vanilla.

We sometimes get asked: “what can I do with Keto Chow besides make shakes?” The best place to start is our Keto Chow Recipes page, here are some of the recipes that use Vanilla Keto Chow:

You should check out the reviews of Keto Chow, we also get a lot of reviews on our Facebook page and on the Keto Chow subreddit. It should be noted that we publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones we remove are spam posts or reviews that divulge personal information. These are just a few of the dozens of real reviews we received in the last week

I picked up keto chow on the recommendation of a friend. Mixed with some heavy cream, this stuff makes a thick creamy delicious shake. Also, with the heavy cream, this has been my easiest transition into ketosis. Normally it’s a tremendous struggle. Love this stuff.

taste test

Very good flavor and texture with heavy cream . Other fats are not as yummy. I would like to see more use of the monk fruit or stevia. Good flavor variety and more flavors like blueberry would be very nice.

Janet M.
Love them all

I’m loving them all and finding different ways to mix them up. I’ve lost 4.2 lbs in 4 days 🙌🏻❤️

OMGOSH!!! Best shakes I’ve tried — and I’ve tried MANY!!!

Most protein/keto shakes or replacements have an aftertaste or chalky texture. I had seen nothing but good reviews on Keto Chow so decided to give them a try!!

I am SO glad I did — these are creamy, delicious & very filling! I highly recommend!!!

Erin G.
Eggnog is BOMB

I’ve tried a few different flavors and the EGGNOG is what I’ve been searching for. It’s deliciously sweet without being too much. I also made the crepes using the eggnog flavor and they were amazing. Exactly what I needed to keep going with keto.

Gina D.
Pleasantly Surprised!

I ordered these skeptical since most protein shakes leave me with stomach aches. These did not. I have to admit that the salted caramel was my favorite flavor so far and it tasted amazing warm too! I definitely think I found my go-to for shakes.

Ashley B.
Best flavor yet.

I admit when it comes to anything with pumpkin spice and or caramel flavor I am always a bit apprehensive. But I have to say that the pumpkin spice caramel flavor from you guys is nothing less than simply outstanding. That is good stuff. The fact that from when I ordered to the time I received was actually one day less than when I previously ordered from keto Chow direct is even better and of course the website speaks for itself because of how thoroughly simple it is to understand how to make the drinks the best they can be.

Frank H.
Soooooo good…

Being the sceptical person that I am, after reading rave reviews, I decided to just try the sample pack. Even though I’m not keen on all the flavors offered, I was blown away by just how delicious they ALL are. Really creamy & smooth. No grittiness or bad aftertaste. I have since ordered 4 full size packages.

Susie P.

I was recommended to try Keto Chow and so I did. I ordered the starter pack and the Pumpkin Spice Caramel along with the Chocolate Peanut Butter. By far the best Keto shake we have had! The pumpkin spice caramel taste just like the name and my husband absolutely loves the chocolate peanut butter. We can’t wait to try the rest!

Tara H.
Tastes Great, More Filling

I got my first order Keto Chow for Christmas (I got the hint) and loved it. Made the mistake of seeking out a less expensive alternative from Costco, it tasted awful and did not feel like a meal replacement. Left me feeling hungry. I promptly ordered 3 more bags of Keto-Chow! Also their customer service is great, had a minor issue and they went above and beyond to fix the issue!

Dustin M.
Hard to pick a favorite!

Ordered a bunch of single flavors and blender bottles. Texture is great, I like the flexibility of controlling the fat based on my diet goals. A nice substitution and break from cooking for one meal a day.

Deb L.
Best Plateau Breaker Ever

Oh man oh man. Where to begin?! This is my mini miracle find. First off, AMAZING FLAVORS!!! I have recommended Keto Chow to everyone! My fiance is trying it soon too! It helped me FINALLY break my plateau weight! I have been calorie counting for months! Fantastic practice for me, eat whatever I want in better moderation, but I lost 20 lbs and couldn’t lose any more. No matter what I did. Then I found this and thought, why not. I can try it for $30 (beginner sample bag). LOVED EVERY FLAVOR. I nearly panicked realizing my 10 flavor sample may not be to my house in time to continue one a day. Then it came at 6:00 PM (shout out to the mail carrier heroes!) and I ripped it open, made my meal, and drank it after chilling it for an hour. I immediately ordered a 21 meal bag of chocolate (the first flavor I tried in the original) and plan to buy so many more flavors once my fiance picks some she likes.

I am so happy with Keto Chow. I am a little hesitant to try the soups… but I will come around I think. I can not stop recommending this product enough. Even at the sample size level, buying just 1 of them, shipping it, and trying it with the fat of your choice (I use butter or cream) costs less than some of the fast food meals can be but you feel better doing the Keto Chow. I have been having one Keto Chow meal a day for about 2 and a half weeks, I have lost 5 lbs, no longer feel addicted to sugars (that’s a miracle as well honestly) and I look forward to seeing how much more I can lost with Keto Chow. It is fast and easy and honestly my favorite meal I can make in less than a minute.

If you are on the fence. Give it a try and just get a few samples you really think will taste good (pssst, they all do). WORSE case scenario, you end up consuming more nutrients in a 20 oz shake than you would have gotten in 3 of your fast food meals, AND you saved more money. Really, if you want to jump into Ketosis, give Keto Chow a try! IT IS AMAZING!!

  • Blender



  • To make brown butter, melt your butter over low heat and cook it gently until it begins to brown and smell toasted. Be careful once it starts to toast and brown; it can burn quickly. (1-2 sticks can take as long as 20 minutes on low to brown.) It will be very hot. Set it aside to cool for at least 15 minutes. 
  • When your butter is ready, mix it with heavy cream, Keto Chow, apple pie spice, vanilla extract, apple extract, and water in a blender.
  • Chill overnight.
  • When you are ready to serve, put the prepared Keto Chow back in the blender with the cup of ice and blend. 
  • Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of apple pie spice if desired.


If you already have brown butter, preparation time is 5 min with an overnight rest.

  • Blender
  • Fine strainer


  • 2 ounces macadamia nuts or blanched almonds
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 large cinnamon stick
  • 28 ounces water
  • 2 servings Vanilla Keto Chow (or 2 scoops)
  • 2-4 ounces heavy cream optional


  • Spread the macadamia nuts on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 325 for ten minutes or until they begin to turn a golden color and smell fragrant. Remove them from the oven and set aside to cool slightly.
    Toasted Macadamia Cinnamon Vanilla Cooler
  • Split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise with a sharp paring knife. Scrape out the seeds with the edge of the knife.
  • Place the toasted nuts, the vanilla bean and its seeds, and the cinnamon stick in a pitcher or large mason jar.
  • Bring the water to a simmer and carefully pour it over the nuts, vanilla bean and cinnamon stick.
  • Leave the water mixture out on a counter until it has cooled to room temperature.
  • When it has reached room temperature and is no longer hot to the touch stir in the Vanilla Keto Chow, cover the container and refrigerate the whole thing overnight.
  • When the mixture has been refrigerated overnight, remove the split vanilla bean and the cinnamon stick and blend the rest of the ingredients in a blender until the nuts are completely pureed and it looks smooth and creamy.
  • Strain the blended liquid through a very fine strainer set over a pitcher or large jar.
  • Using the back of a spoon or a rubber spatula push the liquid through the strainer until all that’s left in the strainer is the nut meal. You can line the strainer with a couple layers of cheesecloth if you have it.
  • Discard the nut meal or save it to use in keto baked goods or hot cereal.
  • Taste your strained cooler and add heavy cream if desired.
  • Serve well chilled, over ice.

Note: If you don’t have vanilla beans you can substitute a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Add the extract after the hot water has cooled.
