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).
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 (affiliate) 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!
