Dairy Free Creamy Strawberry Milkshake
I thought I’d bring back the classic strawberry milkshake this week but dairy free, plant based style. When I was a kid I LOVED me a strawberry milkshake. It was such a rarity in our household as it was only allowed as a “treat”. My parents didn’t allow us to have anything other than water, if only they had this recipe, I would have been able to have a Dairy Free Strawberry Milkshake all day long! lol. It occurred to me the other day while I watched my friend’s lil nephew slurping away at one that I haven’t had one since my school days! What!?! That was a long time ago! So on my way home I picked up a punnet of strawberry’s to re create this, it had to be done. Obviously making your strawberry milkshake this way will give you all of the amazing benefits from the fresh, nutrient rich ingredients rather than the powdered formulas or ready-made ones you can buy, who knows what the hell is in them!? Plus I think this one tastes way better then my school day ones.
