Dairy-Free Fruity Froyo Shakes make Plant-Based Celebrations Simple

2

I’ve always had a sweet tooth. But over the years, I’ve learned that I prefer sweets that aren’t overly indulgent. Just yesterday, I shared our preference for these healthier decorated allergy-friendly cookies over cupcakes. They’re easier, and still indulgent, but don’t leave me wishing I hadn’t splurged. These dairy-free fruity froyo shakes are the same concept. The quick and simple recipe adds dessert touches to a nutritious concept for a satisfying treat that kids and adults love.

Dairy-Free Fruity Froyo Shake makes Plant-Based Celebrations Simple

Most shakes involve copious amounts of ice cream or frozen yogurt with just a smattering of liquid and mix-ins. These better-for-you froyo shakes take an opposite approach. Generous amounts of healthy frozen fruit are added to “freeze” the yogurt as it blends. Here are some variations you might like to try:

  • Substitute frozen banana for the mango.
  • Substitute peach for the blueberries.
  • Substitute raspberries for the strawberries.
  • Use two dairy-free yogurts, and reduce the milk beverage to 3/4 cup.
  • Drizzle a strawberry sauce around the inside edge of the shakes, so it runs down the sides before topping.

  1. This was really yummy. My little girl is allergic to dairy so she misses out on the ‘joy’ of regular ice cream. I used the frozen banana instead of the mango cuz I’m not a fan. I also didn’t have sufficient milk on hand so, I used half cup of store bought dairy-free coconut ice cream and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. All 4 of us loved it, esp her!
