Hi, friends! Hubs left for the Philippines yesterday for a trip for his grad school, so I’m a little down in the dumps today. Thinking I’ll have to make myself a vegan chocolate strawberry shake to cry into for a snack later. Kidding! Kinda. I’m literally the worst at being alone when he travels, but he gets really cool opportunities for work and school, so it’s like this internal struggle between wanting him to have fun experiences and wanting him home with me simultaneously. Ya can’t have everything, right?

But you can have chocolate + strawberries in a creamy, dreamy shake, so that’ll just have to be enough for me right now. 🙂

I know Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but like, the chocolate and strawberry combination is such a classic we can just keep it going, right? Glad we’re on the same page.

Serious question: what’s your favorite vegan brand/flavor of ice cream? There are SO freaking many vegan ice creams available now, it makes me so happy. Many people have no idea that the dairy industry is just as bad (if not worse) than the meat industry for the animals, so the fact that there are so many amazingly delicious vegan ice creams that are widely available is so exciting.

I’ve had a few of the popular brands, and they’re bomb. But, for me, banana nice cream will forever and always be number one for me. Simple, healthy, and oh so sweet, thick, and creamy. We got a vitamix for Christmas (thanks, mom and dad!!), so needless to say I’ve been having the most incredible thick, ice cream-esque banana smoothie bowls as much as possible. This vegan chocolate strawberry shake is like my favorite nice cream bowl but a little smoother, and in drinkable, shake form. It’s perfection.

The ingredients are so simple here, and it literally takes a minute to prepare. Blend up frozen bananas, frozen strawberries, cocoa powder, and almond milk. That’s it! Feel free to use chocolate protein powder if you want it to be a little more satisfying. I’ve been loving Garden of Life raw chocolate protein lately, try it if you haven’t!
