Refreshing Vegan Carrot Milkshake!
Sweet, cool and refreshing milkshakes represents the best recipes that let us enjoy summer. Today, I plan to share the recipe for a milkshake with a not so common ingredient….Carrots! Not just that, it is a milkshake that is NOT loaded with sugar or dairy ingredients! Don’t you think that’s incredible?! I am excited to share this with you today. I cannot wait to hear from you about this and how much you like it.
You can hardly find milkshakes that come in flavors other than vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. So I came up with the idea of using carrots. I don’t think I have to go at length about the goodness of carrots. A recipe such as this is an easy way to add a serving of this super veggie to your diet. Vegan Carrot Milkshake is very easy to prepare and relatively quick recipe if you have all the ingredients prepped.
I steamed the carrots to soften them, but you can also use them raw if you prefer so. Next, I substituted the sugar with pitted dates and used a non-dairy milk. I used soy milk, but there are several options for non-dairy milk. So, you can go with your favorite. With these wonderful and healthy substitutions, you can enjoy your milkshake without any guilt! Last but not least, I made my own vegan whipped cream to top the milkshake. The vegan whipped cream procedure can be a little lengthy. But long story short it is a mix of coconut cream and a little-powdered sugar. If you want to keep your milkshake completely free of table sugar, you can leave that out.
