If you’ve been craving something cool and sweet to escape that summer heat, why not try a vegan milkshake? I have two different flavours of dairy-free shakes coming your way. If you are a strawberry fan or a chocolate fan- I got you covered. Or if you can’t decide, maybe you’ll just have to make both.
would you choose a vegan chocolate shake or strawberry vegan milkshake?
Ok, guys, this chocolate dairy free milkshake I whipped up tastes like a frosty from Wendy’s- it’s SO satisfying. And for a girl who grew up dipping her french fries into her frosty- it’s really nice to have that cold, chocolate-ly goodness back in my life. My Picky Husband agreed that it sure hit the spot- now we just need to bake some fries to go with it.
Sometimes the richness of a chocolate milkshake just makes you extra thirsty and you kind of crave something a little lighter- I get you. If that’s the case, the strawberry shake is just for you. This tastes like a sip of summer. When strawberry season comes around- watch out, I’ll probably have a strawberry vegan milkshake err day. (JK, but maybe… )
You will need a high-speed blender to get the right consistency for these shakes. I’m in love with my Vitamix, and it works like a charm. If you don’t have a high-speed blender, I would suggest blending the ingredients in small batches until they are smooth and then at the end adding all the blended batches back into the blender and blend to fully incorporate.
here are a few reasons why I love these dairy free milkshakes, so listen up!
- These delightful vegan drinks are completely naturally sweetened. That is a big win in my books. They are both sweetened with dates and the strawberry milkshake obviously has strawberries in it. But there are no funky syrups or secret sugars sweetening these dairy free shakes. Just the good old stuff right from Mother Nature. So you can enjoy both of these flavours guilt-free!
- These milkshakes are so refreshing. They are absolutely amazing on a hot summer’s day. They are like an extreme smoothie. These shakes don’t have veggies in them, but they are a decadent and just as refreshing as a smoothie if you are needing a break from those veggie-packed smoothies!
- Truthfully, I can’t choose a favourite between chocolate and strawberry. I crave each of them at different times. The vegan chocolate shake is richer and the strawberry one is sweeter and lighter. They both will bring a smile to your lips though. And who knows, maybe if you are feeling crazy you’ll dip some french fries into them, just for old times sake.
Whatever side you are on, chocolate or strawberry, I think you’ll be super pumped about this decadent drink dessert. Fully embrace dipping your french fries into either vegan milkshake, then you’ll have dinner and dessert all in one. That’s a
