Well, between all the crazy Starbucks Unicorn mania all over social media, my large abundance of lemons and it getting really warm out here in Texas, I've really been in the mood for something cold, sweet and frosty. But, it's not as exciting to look at as a Unicorn drink...sorrrry. But aside from that, I guarantee you will love this Vegan Lemonade Milkshake. It is so creamy, thick, bursting with lemon flavor and just sweet enough. It is absolutely delicious and feels like guilt, but without all that crazy amount of sugar.
Dare I say I enjoyed it more than even a chocolate milkshake?! Seriously, it has an almost cream cheese like flavor thanks to an unexpected ingredient...vanilla yogurt. The flavor of this milkshake just screams spring and is so unbelievably refreshing, I wanted to drink 2 back to back.
Did I mention it's crazy easy to make and only 4 ingredients? Yup, you only need a few easy to find ingredients to make this:
- Fresh lemons
- Dairy-free "lite" coconut milk
- Dairy-free vanilla yogurt
- Maple syrup
You see that glass in the back half empty? Yup. That is because my daughter and I just couldn't help ourselves and besides, it really is realistic to photograph it this way because it's soooo good.
Even though you only need 4 ingredients for this, you will need 1 day in advance to make this, so plan today if you want it for tomorrow! You will need to freeze the freshly squeezed lemon juice and just HALF the can of "lite" coconut milk overnight so they become the ice for the milkshake. Otherwise it will be just too much liquid and not icy like a milkshake.
This is a much better option than just adding ice to the milkshake, because then the flavor gets really diluted and won't taste like a milkshake! So, don't try to get all impatient and skip that step!
