Thick Vegan Chocolate Shake, a perfect pre-holiday shopping pick-me-up!

I used to love ice cream. I could eat it every day, but of course I didn’t. Well, maybe I did if you count small bowls too. Anyway, I found it just a bit ironic that ice cream was the very thing that tipped me off to a dairy intolerance. After eating some particularly creamy ice cream I felt some pain in my stomach. Then I had some more of that creamy ice cream a few days later and sure enough I noticed the pain again.

It was not an easy thing to give up, but I’m not a big fan of pain so the ice cream had to go.

I’m not a fan of feeling deprived either. So that means it didn’t take long before I began to experiment with making vegan versions of my favorite ice cream treats. Take this chocolate shake. (Ok. Don’t mind if I do!)

How to Make Thick Vegan Chocolate Shake

This mouth-watering Thick Vegan Chocolate Shake is super easy to make! In a blender add the milk, cocoa powder, vegan ice cream, ice cubes, and frozen banana. My blender has an “ice crusher” speed so I used that to get the mixture nice and frothy.

Then blend on high for a minute or so until the mixture is smooth. 

Pour into a glass and top with vegan whipped topping and/or chocolate syrup.

I combined plant-based milk with some vanilla non-dairy frozen ice cream and voila! I had a shake on the making!

I added a little vegan whipped topping to top off the sweet treat. Much better than a pain in the stomach if you ask me!

  1. I love the 8th Continent Soymilk in the pink cartons! And this recipe sounds great, but I think I’d wait for summer again to try it.

  2. To be honest I’ve never tried this brand, but I’m also new to lactose intolerance! (fun?!)

    But I’d love to try Original and Chocolate!

  3. I love regular and lite 8th Continent Soy Milk. It is always my choice. I think I’d like to try the chocolate, tho I have resisted the chocolate….if I got it free I’d give it a try for sure.. The shake sounds awesome!

  4. Yum…a chocolate shake sounds just about perfect right now. We don’t buy icecream anymore but I’m happy to say we have everything we need to make this delightful treat! Thank you for making me smile (and my stomach growl!) I hope you had a blessed Sunday and I wish you a warm and peaceful week.
