Raspberry Milkshake (Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free & Vegan)

This past weekend my family and I went to Bear Lake. We love it there. It is so beautiful and always gives us a much needed break from busy city life.

Bear Lake and the surrounding area is famous for its abundance of raspberries. In August they have an entire festival centered around raspberries. Everyone talks about Bear Lake’s raspberry milkshakes. I’ve been going up to the lake for years and never tried a milkshake. I just couldn’t give in to drinking a milkshake that I knew was full of less than stellar ingredients. But this year I caved.

I saw people drinking the shakes by the lake and my daughter begged me for one. Oh my…it was pure bliss! But besides raspberries, I’m pretty sure there was nothing else healthy in that shake. So I vowed to make my own dairy-free version at home this week. And thank goodness I did! This “milkshake” is sweet and creamy and can be enjoyed to one’s heart content without a doubt of what fake ingredients might be lurking in it.

Add to Vitamix or Blender:

2 cans coconut milk

1 cup coconut sugar

12 ounces fresh raspberries

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tray ice cubes

Blend on high for 2 minutes. Pour into glasses and enjoy!

Makes 4 servings.
