Strawberry milkshake 💕 I simply blended 2 frozen bananas with 1 cup of plant based milk and 1 cup of strawberries 🍓 so frothy and creamy 🍧
The weather has been so nice lately, I’ve been reading in the sun for 2 hours and it’s the best feeling to leave my coat at home and get those summer dresses of out hibernation ☀️
Hoped this breakfast would make me want to study 🙈
Vegan Milkshake with strawberries and melted dark chocolate 😍
2 large frozen bananas
1 cup plant based milk
3 squares of dark chocolate
Handful of strawberries
Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl placed above boiling water (or I guess the microwave could work too)
Drizzle the melted chocolate on the edges of your jar
Cut strawberry slices thinly and stick them to the jar
Blend the bananas and milk in a blender or food processor
Pour in the jar and enjoy 😊
- 10 strawberries, try not to pick tart ones. Like, what’s the point of tart strawberries? I don’t see one. Yes, some people like the mixture of sweet and sour. Well, I don’t. I think strawberries should be sugary sweet, which unfortunately they’re usually not, so that’s where our other ingredients below come in handy.
- ¾ or 1 cup Almond Milk (homemade is better, but time consuming. Dude almonds are sweet naturally. I just ate like 8 almonds today and let me tell you, they were freaking SWEET. Chew on them for a minute and you’ll realize they’re packing sugar like mad.)
- As much freaking multi-grain Cheerios (cuz they’re sweet) as you want your sweet tooth seeking self to enjoy. The more cereal, the grottier the milkshake. Lesser cereal for a smoother one. Obviously. Duh!
- 1 to 3 teaspoons Maple Syrup because let’s face it just like cereal, maple syrup is great. I’m surprised I’ve not advocated the addition of my third favorite ingredient (peanut butter) in here. I’m controlling myself. Everything is under control.
- 3 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients together until you want to no longer watch it spin and just drink it up.
I guarantee you that you will love this recipe. Why? Because it has cereal in it! Cereal is great! Everyone should eat cereal. Technically though the traditional General Mills and Kellog’s cereals are notorious for adding harmful chemicals to their products. But with the advent of organic ones, I feel OK indulging in some multi-grain sweet Cheerios action. Also, if you are skeptical about traditional cereal, use organic Trader Joe’s O’s or something similar instead of the multi-grain cheerios.
(Note: pictured shake has a different kind of cereal, which I don’t recommend in it)
Shout out to my suburban vegans because it’s Frappucino happy hour at Starbucks til the 11th. If you don’t care for coffee but you’re really jonesing for a vanilla milkshake in a town that doesn’t have good and/or affordable non dairy ice cream options you should know there are a lot of vegan frapp options at Starbucks. The vanilla bean frapp made with soy and without whip is super delicious. If you want it chocolate-y ask for the mocha drizzle on top.
