Simple Vegan Chocolate Oreo Milkshake Recipe

So, I originally was going to follow a recipe, but I didn’t have enough resources or the right kind of resources. This meant that I made it the way I wanted to, and it was awesome! This recipe is only for one milkshake, just times the ingredients for more. If you’re allergic to soy or almonds, you can substitute them for whichever milk/ice cream you use. 

What I used:

120ml Alpro Almond Milk (not my favourite brand but it does the job)

150g Chocolate Swedish Glacé (use vanilla if you prefer that instead of a chocolate flavour)

4 Oreos

My extremely simple recipe:

1. Shove that ice cream and milk in a blender. Blend until smooth. 

2. Add 2 Oreos to the mix and blend. I did this at a lower blender setting as I wanted little bits of Oreo in my milkshake. However, I noticed some big chunks that hadn’t blended properly and had to push them to the blade halfway through. I was alright with a few chunks left in the mix.

3. I then got a sandwich bag and put the remaining 2 Oreos in it, and got a rolling pin so I could beat them up until they were tiny little bits. I sprinkled this on the top of my milkshake, a few bits accidentally missing it and going in my mouth. Unfortunate. 

4. It just about fit in my mug (I don’t drink out of glasses, but you can!) and then I drank it. It was actually delicious. 

I hope you like this recipe that is simpler than all of those ‘add this, add this, oh and this exotic ingredient’ ones on the internet. I really liked the taste. It was lovely. 🙂

Vegan Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I thought I’d share this amazing recipe for cookies which is vegan (and you won’t believe it).

INGREDIENTS

(can make 6 – 12 cookies, dependant on how big you want each one)

125g vegan butter (Vitalite is my recommendation)

125g granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

250g plain white flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

40g vegan chocolate chips

STEP ONE

Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.

STEP TWO

In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Add this to the cream butter and mix until a soft dough is formed.

STEP THREE

Shape into a log, wrap in clingfilm or foil, and refrigerate for at least an hour (or preferably overnight).

STEP FOUR

To bake, preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Divide and roll the cookies into equally-sized balls before spacing them well apart on a baking sheet.

STEP FIVE

Bake in batches. Each batch should take 15 – 20 minutes to cook. Slightly underdone is best as the cookies will firm up when cooled.

STEP SIX

Leave to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then carefully transfer them to a wire cooling rack.

STEP SEVEN

Enjoy! 🙂

You can adapt this recipe as you like to create different types of cookies.

I hope you enjoyed this post,

Lia 🙂
