• I used to go to Friendly’s (ice cream restaurant) and think nothing of ordering a big, frosty chocolate milkshake. That was back in the days when I ate dairy. Now, if I want that milkshake thrill, I can create it right in my own kitchen and it tastes just like the ol’ dairy-filled chocolate milkshakes I used to order from Friendly’s. Except that when I’m finished drinking it, the mustache I wipe doesn’t have a stitch of dairy in it!

    1 cup alternative milk (I used Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Soymilk)
    3 pitted dates
    1 tsp agave nectar
    1 tbsp cocoa powder
    1/2 frozen banana
    6 strawberries
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 ice cubes

    Combine all in blender and whir. Drink immediately. When finished, wipe mustache.

      I love smoothies/milkshakes.

      I make a green one with soymilk, spinach, frozen banana, blueberries, and yogurt.

      Or a chocolate protein shake with chocolate soymilk, chocolate protein powder, and peanut butter.

      it sounds frosty and delicious. I've been keeping bags of frozen fruit in the freezer so I can make smoothies whenever I want. Now you've given me the urge to add chocolate to my next one!

      This looks delicious! My favorite smoothie is pretty similar, chocolate, banana, and peanut butter.

      My favorite smoothie use to be a plain old soy milk, strawberry, banana smoothie, then one day I was craving strawberry ice cream. This is my quickie strawberry ice cream:

      Place in blender 1 cup soy milk add frozen strawberries until until they come up above the surface of the milk. Add to this 1/4 of agave or maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Blend until desired smoothness of chunkiness.
