Maple-Butter Pecan Milkshake

11

There are many amazing dairy-free food products out there, but it’s rare that a specific item becomes the core inspiration for one of my recipes. However, such is the case for those beloved Cashew Milk Frozen Desserts and this resultant, creamy maple-butter pecan milkshake.

Maple-Butter Pecan Milkshake - Deliciously dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free and vegan! This indulgent delight has the perfect buttery base and easy toasted maple pecans.

The rich flavor of the Creamy Cashew tastes so much like the base of traditional butter pecan ice cream that I simply had to play dress-up with some easy, homemade toasted maple pecans and blend the whole thing up for a dreamy diner-worthy delight.

If you can’t yet find those cashew milk frozen desserts in your area (I’m so sorry!) then I’d go straight to a dairy-free butter pecan frozen dessert for making this maple-butter pecan milkshake – So Delicious has an Almond Milk version and, a No Sugar Added Coconut Milk version.

No, they didn’t pay me to say that!

It helps to make the maple pecans ahead, as they do need about 20 minutes to cool (lest you melt your shakes!). They can be stored once cool in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week.

Instructions
Maple Pecans
  1. Heat the buttery spread or oil in a pan over medium heat. Stir in the pecans and salt and saute for about 2 minutes or until just lightly golden and fragrant. Add the maple syrup, it will sizzle, and quickly stir to coat the pecans. Continue to stir and cook for about 2 minutes - they should appear quite sticky, with most of the maple clinging to the pecans, but not burnt.
  2. Pour the pecans out onto a silicone baking mat or parchment paper, and let cool 5 minutes. Break them up into bits once cool enough to handle, and let cool completely.
  3. Run a little hot water around the outside of the frozen dessert to loosen. Open and press the bottom to plop it out onto a cutting board. Cut in half and then quarters - it just helps blending to use smaller chunks.
  4. Place the frozen dessert chunks and 1 cup milk beverage in your blender and puree until smooth, adding more milk beverage as needed to get the right consistency (I usually use about 1¼ cups). Add ¼ cup of the cooled maple pecans, and pulse the blender a few times to break them up and disperse.
  5. Pour the mixture into 3 glasses and top each with a small handful of the remaining maple pecans.

  3. Looks delicious and healthy for children. Thanks for the recipe! I recently bought “Guilt-Free Desserts”, so I have a bunch of recipes like this one.

  4. how can a dairy-free milkshake look so good?!?! I would love this, I will have to look for those So Delicious Cashew frozen desserts. I used to eat the So Delicious coconut ice cream all the time when I couldn’t have dairy while nursing my first son, I bet this will be just as delicious!
