How are these vegan milkshakes thickened?

Most vegan shakes are thickened with frozen banana. I decided not to use banana for these shakes because I didn’t want them to taste like banana at all.

Softened cashews are also a common thickener in vegan recipes, but again I didn’t want that taste for these particular vegan milkshakes.

I was trying to achieve the classic taste of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry milkshakes.

So, I used ice as a way to cool and thicken these shakes. That’s why it is important to drink them right after blending. If the ice melts, these drinks will no longer have a “milkshake” texture to them.

I also added a tbsp of coconut flour to the vanilla shake to give it a slightly thicker texture, but this is not necessary. If you already have coconut flour in your pantry, go ahead and throw it in. But there’s no need to go buy a package of coconut flour just for this vanilla shake.

Why Coconut Milk?

These shakes use canned coconut milk as the base because it is thicker than most milks. Coconut milk is high in calories (about 400 calories per cup), but it is not bad for you in small quantities. Having one of these shakes every once in a while, will not harm your health or have a negative impact on your weight loss goals. In fact, it can benefit your health when not over-consumed.

These vegan coconut milkshakes are much healthier than most!! Think of them as a healthy version of a treat.

These shakes make either one large serving or two smaller servings. If you’re trying to lose weight, I suggest sticking to half of a recipe.
