We have all had colds this past week and with sore throats, it was the kind of day that needed a sweet, dessert pick-me-up. I would have loved to make thick, vanilla milkshakes but Vaida’s stomach doesn’t handle ice cream very well.
We created these dairy-free milkshakes and they were sweet, creamy and ice cold. My kids love the taste of homemade almond milk so we used that as our base but then added canned coconut milk for the creamy texture. We flavored it with banana and vanilla and sweetened it with pure maple syrup (Vaida’s idea).
I also had to include the picture Vaida took of the milkshakes because she is so proud of her photography skills:
- 1 c homemade almond milk
- ½ c canned coconut milk (I scraped off and used the thickest part)
- 1 banana
- 2 c ice
- 1 Tbls vanilla
- 1-2 Tbls pure maple syrup
- Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth
