Burgerville makes Dairy-Free Shakes & Ice Cream Sandwiches an Everyday Thing


Updated in 2021! When I was a teenager, my dad and I would meet up at Burgerville every week. He’s always been really into health, but loves to enjoy a burger as his weekly treat. And Burgerville was his favorite. Since moving from the Northwest, I haven’t visited this popular chain. But it looks like they’ve been doing some amazing things. Beyond the usual order, they now serve veggie burgers, turkey burgers, truffle fries, and even vegan milkshakes. In fact, they’ve even added plant based, dairy free ice cream sandwiches to their everyday menu! All of the options are outlined in the dairy-free menu guide below.

Burgerville Dairy-Free Menu Guide with Vegan Options

We won’t tell if you have dessert first, but you might want to know about their savory items too! Burgerville is known for locally-sourced ingredients and a commitment to sustainability. So it isn’t surprising that their menu boasts several healthier options, including plant-based and dairy-free choices. Please note that their allergen information (at the time of our review) had some inaccuracies. The guide below corrects for these and is also labeled with vegan options.

The base soft serve blend for the Bliss Shakes is made with coconut milk and organic cane sugar, and it was created by Coconut Bliss exclusively for Burgerville. The dairy-Free shakes are reportedly made on a dedicated Bliss machine at each participating location, which is separate from the dairy milkshake machine.

What are the Cookie Sandwiches Made with? The dairy free sweet & salty caramel ice cream filling is made by Coconut Bliss, and the chocolate chip cookies are made using gluten-free ingredients from Miffy’s Foods.
