Vanilla Milkshake

Share it Please
I almost killed my Vita-Mix while making this. Apparently, I froze my milk to long. But all is well! Mr. Vita-Mix did not die, which I am very grateful for. If he had I wouldn't be able to make this again.
Frothy and thick

A carton of almond milk was sitting in the fridge just begging to be turned into a milk shake. Me, being as compassionate as I am, willingly obliged. I'm so glad I did. This milkshake is creamy, rich, delicious, and is a snap to make! The longest part is waiting for the milk too freeze.

Would be even better with whipped cream

With only 5 ingredients, I bet you can make this too. Right now.

1 c. almond milk or other non-dairy milk (plus a little extra for blending)
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 T. honey or other liquid sweetener

1. Freeze the almond milk for 2-3 hrs. if you want a frothy drink that tastes just as good (but doesn't kill your blender. Freeze for 4-5 hrs. if you want more of a milkshake consistency.
2. After your milk is frozen, add all ingredients to blender.
3. Blend until smooth.
4. Pour into a cup, add chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, whipped cream, or other add-ins and enjoy!

Melts quickly

Substitution Notes: The almond milk can be subbed for any other non-dairy milk. I'm not sure how good regular milk would be. If you try it, please report back in the comments with the results. The honey can be replaced by honey, maple syrup, agave, or any other liquid sweetener. I don't know if table sugar would work. Again, if you try it, please let me know.

Inquiry of the Day: 

What is your favorite kind of milkshake?

My favorite is mint cookies 'n' cream. The only place I've found that it's available is Steak 'n' Shake. Cookie dough and regular mint chip are always good, too. So is chocolate, Reese's, Butterfingers, and- who am I kidding. All of them are pretty darn good!
