Print Friendly and PDF
Who doesnt like a good shake! These are the easiest ever basic shakes. And For 1 on top of that. Yes, I make these for just myself ;) You can add other fun things like nut butters, protein powders, scoops of ice-cream and so on. 

The Mocha Chocolate Milk shake can be made in a blender or in a cup(a no shake shake!). The Dark Chocolate shake is just that, cocoa powder, non dairy milk, medjool dates. done. 
Both are very customization to taste and perfect to serve up this summer(wait, where is the sun?) or fall. I like my shakes not too chilled and not too thick and these are how I take mine. No ice-cubes and just the temperature of the non dairy milk from the refrigerator. 

Also, on the post. I am giving away 2 So Delicious dairy free Coupons! They have some amazing non dairy milks, yogurts, Ice creams and so much more to stock up on.

  1. This year I've absolutely loved your red lentil cauliflower burger patties. I've made them so many times!
    My favorite fall drinks.... I guess I'm a sucker for pumpkin spice anything. I used to also love peppermint mochas. I don't drink the really sugary stuff anymore. My sweetie and I make french press every morning year-round. But this fall it has been tasting even better than normal. Yum! We got some stumptown coffee beans recently and have been enjoying it.

    Favorite 2013 recipes? ohgoodgolly Richa, I've bookmarked, saved and/or printed almost every single one of them, I'm not kidding. If I had to choose, I'd say BBQ Chickpea individual Pizza, Chickpea Kabocha Fries, Kesar Burfi, Cinnamon Rolls, and all of your lentil and burger recipes. I'm sorry, I just can't narrow it down any more than that. :)
