Chocolate Coconut Milkshake Trial: Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Nut-free
I recently saw Gluten Free Easily’s recipe for a dairy-free chocolate milkshake and have been wanting to make one ever since. So this week I whipped up a batch.
I actually changed a fair amount in this recipe. Instead of measuring the coconut milk, I just used the entire can. And I omitted the dates because we don’t have them normally, and omitted the almond butter, since Joseph is allergic.
Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Taste, and add sugar as desired. Pour and serve immediately.

What I Thought
This shake had a nice mouth-feel, but I felt the taste was a bit too rich. My husband thought the coconut taste was too strong, but he gladly had seconds. My kids said they liked it, but they were extremely slow in eating. Perhaps they were just having more fun playing with the straws. If I were to redo it, I’d experiment with using So Delicious coconut milk, or ice-cream.
