This post is sponsored by So Delicious Dairy Free. They invited me to help them celebrate their 5 new creative and artful frozen dessert flavors: Chocolate Drizzled Bananas Foster, Peachy Maple Pecan, Blueberry Cardamom, Cold Brew Coffee, and Toasted Coconut Key Lime. As you’ll see in the post, I’m a fan of these fabulous new flavors. I hope you will be too.

Vegan Milkshakes Peach Maple Pecan | @sweetpotatosoul

Summertime is here, and I couldn’t be more excited to be spending it in our new home of Los Angeles! I’m in love with how much milder the summer weather is here. A week spent in NYC in mid-June made me realize how much I really do appreciate the cooler nights, ocean breeze, and dryness of LA.

Still, I’m craving all of the quintessential flavors of summer: fresh juicy fruit (especially peaches and watermelon), iced tea & lemonade, grilled veggie burgers, BBQ everything, and thick frosty milkshakes. Summer just wouldn’t be complete without those classic treats!

So, when I heard about the new frozen dessert flavors by So Delicious Dairy Free I knew I had to use them to make vegan milkshakes. And what goes best with a milkshake? Burger and fries of course! But unlike the burgers, fries, and milkshake you’d get at a standard fast food joint this is vegan, fresher, and so much better for you. Yes, even the milkshakes – they’re dairy free!

Vegan Milkshakes Cold Brew Coffee | @sweetpotatosoul

So Delicious Dairy Free really got me off of my no-coffee kick with my favorite of their new flavors: Cold Brew Coffee. If you love coffee and ice cream you will adore this coconut milk based frozen dessert. One thing I don’t love about traditional milkshakes (aside from the harmful dairy), is the ice cream to milk ratio. A typical fast food milkshake will have 2 cups of sugary ice cream plus 1 cup of sweetened milk. Toooooooo sweet and kinda boring. For this Cold Brew shake you’ll use 1 cup of the vegan dessert, 1 cup of unsweetened non-dairy milk, and 1 cup of naturally sweet ripe frozen bananas. Add some raw cacao powder in there for a mocha-style shake. See, no wonder this is my favorite one.

Magical Vegan Milkshake

By: Jenné Claiborne
Satisfy your sweet tooth with this rich, creamy, mocha-inspired Vegan Milkshake! Made with dairy-free coffee ice cream, plant-based milk, frozen banana, and chocolatey cacao, this guilt-free indulgence is the perfect snack or dessert for summer days or any other occasion!
See the recipe notes for additional milkshake flavor variations, including classics such as chocolate, mint, and strawberry!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup coffee vegan ice cream, such as So Delicious Dairy-Free, plus additional to serve
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, such as soy, almond, or oat milk
  • 1 cup frozen ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder, or cocoa powder
  • 1 sliced banana, to serve

Instructions 

  • Add the ingredients to the blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Press sliced bananas onto the sides of a chilled glass. Pour the milkshake into the glass. Top with another scoop of the vegan ice cream and a few more banana slices. Enjoy immediately!

Notes

Mix up your milkshake with any of the following optional flavor variations: 
  • Vanilla: Keep it basic but delicious with vegan vanilla ice cream, frozen banana, and your choice of non-dairy milk – from an oat milk milkshake to a milkshake with almond milk.
  • Strawberry: A tasty combination of vegan vanilla ice cream, plant-based milk, and frozen strawberries for a berry twist. 
  • Chocolate: Ditch the coffee flavor and go for classic chocolate with vegan chocolate ice cream, dairy-free milk, and frozen bananas. Add cacao powder for enhanced chocolatey goodness. 
  • Mint: An extra refreshing choice made with vanilla ice cream, plant-based milk, mint extract, and frozen bananas. If you’re a chocolate lover, add in a tablespoon or two of optional cocoa powder.
  • Peanut Butter: Make it rich and nutty with vegan vanilla ice cream, non-dairy milk, frozen bananas, peanut butter, or your preferred nut butter.
  • Blueberry: For a fruit-forward delight, blend 1 cup of blueberry (or blueberry cardamom ice cream) with non-dairy milk and 1 cup of frozen blueberries.
  • Peach: Delight in the Georgia peach with me by blending 1 cup of vegan peach ice cream with milk and 1/2 of a frozen ripe banana, if desired! 
Recipe Pro-Tips
  • Use a high-speed blender. To give dairy-free milkshakes the best texture, use a high-speed blender so all ingredients thoroughly blend and develop a smooth, creamy consistency.
  • Chill glass. Place your serving glasses in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before making the non-dairy milkshake recipe. This will keep the vegan shakes cold for longer and enhance the presentation. 
  • Adjust sweetness to taste. Taste the lactose-free milkshake before serving. Add a small amount of maple syrup or agave nectar for a sweeter flavor.
  • Increase the coffee flavor. If you prefer a stronger coffee taste, choose an espresso-flavored vegan ice cream for a more punctuated flavor. Or, blend in a shot of espresso!

Vegan Milkshakes Blueberry Cardamom | @sweetpotatosoul

My other favorite shake is made with the So Delicious Dairy Free Blueberry Cardamom frozen dessert. Yes, you heard that right: Blueberry Cardamom. It’s just as sophisticated and delicious as it sounds, and it makes the prettiest shake of all. Like the Cold Brew shake I wanted to incorporate the natural sweetness of fruit. I used frozen fruit for both shakes because it helps to keep the shake thick and creamy. Top it with a scoop of the Blueberry Cardamom frozen dessert, or a dollop of So Delicious CocoWhip.

So Delicious Vegan Frozen Dessert Vegan Milkshakes | @sweetpotatosoulAnd my other favorite has got to be the Peachy Maple Pecan. Y’all know I’m from the south. More specifically I’m a proud Georgia Peach! This divine cashew-based frozen dessert reminds me of warm peach cobbler topped with ice cream. I didn’t want to make this recipe too complicated, but if you feel like it, plan to make the Ginger Peach Cobbler from my cookbook to serve with this one. The shake is definitely the most classic and simple. Just the Peachy Maple Pecan frozen dessert with unsweetened non-dairy milk. Top it with one more scoop and toasted pecans.
