Do you ever find yourself in the mood for chocolate milk shakes even though your house has a milk allergy?
My husband is notorious for this craving.
“Do we have ingredients to make milk shakes?”.
Happens about once a month.
But no worries, I’m an expert at dairy-free chocolate milk shakes!
And I’m not talking just any old chocolate milk shake.
I’m talking the whipped cream & cherries on top kind of milk shakes.
The full nine yards.
To make these, I grab So Delicious Coco Whip (think Cool Whip gone dairy-free) and a jar of cherries at the store.
Someday, I would love to try the natural cherries from Natural Candy Store (referral).
For the ice cream, I use So Delicious Coconut Vanilla if I’m in a hurry.
Or I make our own homemade dairy-free vanilla ice cream.
It takes about 30 minutes in our gel ice cream maker (affiliate).
If I make my own ice cream…
I let it firm up a little longer in the freezer after it’s done churning, usually about 15 minutes.
Next, the ice cream goes into the blender along with a splash of dairy-free milk and some Hershey’s syrup (check ingredients).
I’ve also been known to use homemade chocolate syrup if I have it on hand.
Watching the family gawk over my cool creations…
and hearing the sounds of slurping straws as they try to savor every last drop…
makes for a pretty great evening at our house.
If you get a chance to make homemade chocolate milk shakes soon, be ready for them to become a family favorite!
