Vegan Vanilla Almond Milkshake!

Hello fellow health and wellness lovers!

It's been awhile since I've posted an update...

This was a busy week: work, house-sitting, studying my coursework for Integrative Nutrition, and working on my health coaching business! I've also been spending time on my gardening blog! ♥

Anyways... last year around this time I found a health food store in Las Vegas, where I had a "Raw Vanilla Milkshake." I don't remember the exact ingredients, but this is what I came up with!

Vegan Vanilla Almond Milkshake
(2 servings)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cups ice
  • 1 medjool date (2 for added sweetnes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tsp. flax oil* (optional, see note below)
 *Flax oil is great for balancing hormones! ;)

Who ever said milkshakes have to be made out of sugar and dairy anyways?


  1. this is how i made my chocolate smoothie i told you about just add cocoa and it totally transforms. i'm excited to try vanilla.

  2. I think I definitely need to try this. How close does it taste to the real thing? Do you at least feel guilty drinking it? Haha

  3. Healthy Meals for Less-

    Well, let me just say... it definitely wouldn't fool Jon (my dairy-loving significant other)!

    But I think it tastes fantastic! And I don't feel the slightest bit of guilt when drinking it! :)
