Chocolate & Peanut Butter Milkshake (Dairy Free)


I am so excited to share this recipe with you! Ever since I started experiencing severe stomach pain a couple of years ago after consuming cow's milk, I've stopped drinking it. I seem to be ok with other forms of dairy (ice cream, cheese, yoghurt etc.) but I've also been exploring other non-dairy options of those too. One of the things I miss most is milkshakes and there don't seem to be many non-dairy alternatives available. This recipe is perfect for anyone with a lactose intolerance or allergy, and for those following a vegan diet.


I used this non-dairy ice cream called Swedish Glace which I found in Tesco, and Blue Diamond almond milk which I drink and bake with regularly.


Milkshake is really easy to make, you just need a stick blender to mix the ingredients.


I blended 140g of chocolate non-dairy ice cream, 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter, 215ml unsweetened almond milk, 1 tsp cocoa powder and 2 tbsp maple syrup, until smooth and frothy. This makes enough for two bottles.


I poured it into a bottle and drank up! It was so creamy and delicious, I wouldn't be able to tell this was dairy free if I didn't already know!

  2. I don't have any dairy issues, but am not a huge of milk if I'm honest. I've tried Oatly and have been curious about the almond milks. Might have to buy some and try it out in your milk shake! Love peanut butter in pretty much anything!

    1. What do you think of Oatly? I've not tried it yet. I don't like coconut milk, so I tend to always go for almond milk.

  3. This sounds gorgeous. I keep coming across peanut butter in shakes and smoothies and keep forgetting to try it myself.
