Let me tell you about the best milkshake I’ve ever had. But before we go any further, I have to warn you: it’s vegan.
If you’re still reading, congratulations. You’re about to get the recipe for the best milkshake I’ve ever had, which means that you can drink said milkshake.
This peach crumble shake is not messing around, people. I am the biggest proponent of full-dairy drinks (see: ice cream diet), but this shake could be made from clouds for all I care. It’s sweet, tangy, refreshing and delicious. If I could choose a flavor for my life, this would be it.
Anyway, before I get even more carried away, a couple things about this shake: One, it has rolled oats. That might seem weird to some of you but trust me, it works to the shake’s advantage. It’s creamy and smooth and the oats give it a little texture.
Two, you should probably double the recipe. I poured it into a mason jar to serve, and I ended up going and scrounging out the rest from the blender with a spoon, a straw…pretty much anything that would do the job.
So yeah. Make this shake, ASAP. Your life will be all the better for it.
In the meantime, here’s a song to listen to.
Peach Crumble Shake (slightly adapted from The First Mess)
2 ripe peaches, pitted, sliced and frozen
¼ cup rolled oats
1 pitted Medjool date
1 tablespoon chia seeds
big squeeze of fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
Blend all the ingredients in a blender on high until smooth. Top with sliced peach, chia seeds, a dash of cinnamon, rolled oats and some bee pollen (if you have it).
