In the dog days of summer, there's nothing like a creamy, frosty milkshake to help you cool down. Most milkshakes are full of dairy, artificial sweeteners, and unhealthy candies that will have your little ones climbing the walls. However, with just a few inexpensive pantry ingredients, and some fresh fruit and veggies, you can make your own delicious vegan milkshakes in just a few minutes. Read on for seven easy recipes your kids will love!
1. Classic Vanilla
With only three ingredients, this is the perfect vegan milkshake to whip up when your kids (or you) are screaming for ice scream.
2. Banana Bread
This banana infused treat is the perfect quick breakfast or afternoon snack. The recipe does call for almond milk and walnuts, but you could substitute soy milk and leave out the nuts if your kiddo is allergic.
3. Strawberry Cream
We are smack dab in the middle of strawberry season right now, so the next time you pick up a bunch at the farmers’ market, keep this vegan milkshake recipe in mind. Full-fat coconut milk plus a little natural sweetener are all you need to make a pink, cool, creamy concoction.
4. Chocolate Cookies and Cream
This vegan milkshake is a recreation of the classic ice cream flavor without all the dairy and artificial sugar.
5. Caramel Apple Pie
It sounds like the shortcut to a mouth full of cavities, but the ingredients of this indulgent vegan milkshake recipe are surprisingly healthy: it’s actually sugar free!
6. Mint Chocolate Chip
This healthy vegan milkshake is so delicious, your kids will never realize that it’s high in fiber, low-calorie and rich in vitamins–or that the green comes from spinach!
7. Sweet Citrus Avocado Dreamboat
Up until now, all the flavors on this list have been pretty standard, but we had to include one from outside the box. This vegan milkshake combines fresh fruit and veggies, healthy fat and coconut water for a boost of nutrients that tastes great! Leave out the cayenne when preparing for little tummies.
