The Simplest Strawberry Milkshake

I grew up enjoying a strawberry milkshake for dessert on many hot nights. Nothing says summer quite like strawberries! And nothing says stomach pains and bloated bellies quite like milk, the #1 food sensitivity out there. So to avoid those unpleasant side affects, I’ve upped the ante and removed the milk and made a plant-based milkshake that taste amazing AND leaves you feeling amazing! I’ve made this during sleepovers and the kids will sip on this while munchin’ on some homemade popcorn. Easy peasy.

This simple and tasty recipe is the first one I’m sharing from my new book, Simple Green Meals.

I cannot wait for you to get my new book, which comes out September 11, 2018!!! Which is pretty much a blink away. I’ve spent the last 18 months testing, creating and recreating recipes that are dairy free, gluten free (90% of them are!), vegetarian and 100% plant-powered. If you’re ready to try the tastiest vegetarian recipes out there (I really mean that)— then pre-order Simple Green Meals now.

If you’re still not sure, make this recipe and taste it. Then you’ll be hooked!

This simple plant-based alternative to a strawberry milkshake has passed the taste test with Jackson and Clare, my kids, and their friends—so trust me, it’s a winner! Feel free to swap out the coconut milk for another nut milk you prefer, such as cashew milk or almond milk.

    How many carbs, sugar, fat and protein are there in one serving of the milkshake?

    Hey Suzanne,

    We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    I love your website, but I’m not understanding why you would have pizza advertising on your website, doesn’t make sense!

    Hey PJ,

    We advertise our own recipe for pizza which we think is pretty awesome for those who love pizza but want a healthy version of it! 🙂

    Jen, congratulations on the new book! This recipe looks amazing! So creamy, and pretty in pink. I can’t wait to try it out! I love that it is so easy, and healthy…it sounds delicious! I also like that it stores easily for a good amount of time in the freezer.

    I tried this and absolutely love it. It is so creamy and delicious. I am thinking of making popsicles out this next time (or freezer pops). Thanks for this great treat.

    This looks so YUM! It didn’t occur to me to make a milkshake with full fat coconut milk, & I must try it this weekend! Congrats on the release of your new book, it looks like a visual feast!!
