You don’t need to use cow’s milk or ice cream to make a milkshake. Here’s a healthy (and tasty) alternative to a strawberry milkshake. Almond milk, coconut milk and banana provide a creamy consistency. Strawberries add a pop of color and berry sweet flavor. A handful of almonds adds a boost of nutrition. (vegan, dairy-free recipe)

Few drops pure vanilla
